There have been Russian soldiers fighting in the Ukraine for a long time. Tome for the Coward-in-Chief to campaign.

"U.N. school In Gaza Caught In Cross-Fire; 15 Killed."

EXCERPT:
"GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP)— Israeli tank shells hit a compound housing a U.N. school in the Gaza Strip on Thursday, killing at least 15 people and wounding dozens who were seeking shelter from fierce clashes on the streets outside, Palestinian officials said, as Israel pressed forward with its 17-day war against the territory's Hamas rulers.

The U.N. said the strike occurred as staff members were trying to arrange a humanitarian pause in the hostilities so they could evacuate the civilians from the compound in the northern town of Beit Hanoun. The Israeli military said it was reviewing the incident and suggested Hamas rockets may have been to blame, although it offered no proof.

Kamel al-Kafarne, who was in the school, said that the U.N. was putting people on buses when three tank shells hit.

"We were about to get out of the school, then they hit the school. They kept on shelling it," he said.

Books, blankets, cushions and other belongings were scattered about the courtyard in the aftermath of the explosion. There was a large scorch mark in the courtyard marking the apparent site of impact. A sandal with a yellow flower lay beside a puddle of blood, and sheep and a horse that had belonged to those seeking shelter grazed nearby. Dozens of people, including children, were wheeled into a nearby hospital.

It was the fourth time a U.N. facility has been hit in fighting between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza, since the conflict began July 8. UNRWA, the Palestinian refugee agency, has said it has found militant rockets inside two vacant schools.

The Israeli military said Hamas had launched rockets that fell in the area that could have been responsible for the deaths.

"We can't confirm that this is a result of errant fire. In any case, we do not target U.N. facilities," military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said. Lerner said the military had urged the U.N. and the Red Cross to evacuate the school for three days leading up to the incident.

The U.N. said it was trying to do just that when the school was hit. Agency spokesman Chris Gunness said the U.N. had asked the Israeli military for a lull in fighting to allow for the school's evacuation but did not hear back."

" United Nations agency dedicated to helping Palestinians discovered 20 rockets hidden in one of its Gaza Strip schools on Wednesday, according to an alarmed press release from the agency. Palestinian militant groups such as Hamas dominate Gaza and use rockets as a tool to terrorize nearby Israelis.

"This is a flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law," said the release from the agency, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). "This incident, which is the first of its kind in Gaza, endangered civilians including staff and put at risk UNRWA's vital mission to assist and protect Palestine refugees in Gaza."

Israel has long accused Gaza-based Palestinian militant groups such as Hamas of using schools and other civilian buildings to store weapons and from which to launch rockets at Israel. Israel's argument has been that this demonstrates Hamas's disregard for Palestinian civilians, justifies Israeli air strikes on civilian buildings that are used in this way by Hamas, and shifts the blame for Palestinian civilian deaths off of Israel and onto Hamas"

Hamas is a terrorist organization and is so designated by the State Dept.;

From the Wall Street Journal":

July 24, 2014 3:53 p.m. ET

WASHINGTON—The U.S. believes Russia is firing artillery across its border at Ukrainian military positions, the State Department said, an assertion that Moscow is playing a more direct role in the Ukrainian conflict.

The latest accusations show U.S. officials raising pressure on Moscow and more closely examining Russian activities near the rebel-held portions of eastern Ukraine since the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight 17, which Washington blames on pro-Russian separatist fighters.

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf also said on Thursday that the U.S. has evidence Moscow intends to deliver powerful rocket systems to the pro-Russia fighters in Ukraine, but she declined to provide details about the systems or about how officials came to that conclusion.
More Coverage

"We have new evidence that the Russians intend to deliver heavier and more powerful multiple rocket launchers to the separatist forces in Ukraine and have evidence that Russia is firing artillery from within Russia to attack Ukrainian military positions," Ms. Harf told reporters at a news briefing, calling the findings "some pieces of info I've been able to get from our intelligence friends."

Time for Obama to campaign.

"Iraqi Jihadists Order Genital Mutilation Of All Women." (VIDEO).
EXCERPT:
"Geneva (AFP)- Jihadists in Iraq have ordered that all women between the ages of 11 and 46 must undergo female genital mutilation, which could affect up to four million women and girls in the war-ravaged country, a UN official said Thursday.
The UN's second most senior official in Iraq, Jacqueline Badcock, said, "It is a fatwa (or religious edict) from ISIS, we learnt about it this morning. We have no precise numbers."
The Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), took over large swathes of the country last month and has begun imposing its extreme Salafist interpretation of Islam.
Badcock said that if you took UN population figures as a guide, around "four million girls and women could be affected".
Female genital mutilation is unusual in Iraq and is only practiced in "certain isolated pockets of the country", she added.
She said only 20 families from the ancient Christian minority now remain in Mosul, the northern Iraq city which ISIS has taken as the capital of its Islamic state. Most have reportedly fled north into Kurdish-controlled territory.
Badcock said some Christians have converted to Islam, while others have opted to stay and pay the jiyza, the tax on non-Muslim's ISIS has imposed."

We have a poster here that has said Christians are worse than jihadists.
How many of you here recall Christians doing this barbaric multilation of women? How about beheadings? How about chopping hands off with a machete for "suspecting" robbery?
These jihadists and those that sympathize with them are evil, evil people.
There's only one reason for it, of course, and it's patriarchal control. Insane misogyny. The limousine liberals, anointed "champions of womyn's rights" love the burka. Maybe deep down those unbathed menface with the ponytail under each arm know a tow sack on their head really is what's best.

"Minimum-Wage Workers Are Getting Left Behind."

EXCERPT:

"In 1968, the federal minimum wage was $1.60 per hour, which in 2012 dollars (the latest year for which federal data is available) amounts to $10.34 per hour. For the millions of low-wage workers around the U.S., real income has gone downhill ever since.

Although the minimum wage has risen to $7.25 over the ensuing years (tipped workers typically earn much less), the purchasing power of employees earning that baseline level pay has steadily shrunk because it isn't rising along with inflation. In fact, minimum-wage workers earn less today in real dollars than they did more than 50 years ago. In financial terms, they have effectively defied the laws of physics and traveled backward in time.

Today marks the five-year anniversary since the federal minimum was last raised, from $6.55 an hour. Since 2009, earners making that amount have lost nearly 6 percent of their buying power, according to the Pew Research Center.

Here's what that means in terms the average consumer can appreciate:
In July 2009, a pound of ground beef cost about $2.15; today that will run you $3.88, up 80 percent.
Five years ago a gallon of whole milk cost about $3, versus $3.62 today.
A gallon of regular gas in the summer of 2009 ago ran $2.61, compared with $3.54 today.
Rent? Over that time that's risen from a U.S. median of $461 a month to more than $760.

Of course, everyone knows daily life tends to be pricier today than it was yesterday. A better way to get a sense of how much low-paid workers have fallen behind is to look at their earnings relative to what most employees make."

"Who Are The Kids Of The Migrant Crisis?"

EXCERPT:

"Since last October, a staggering 57,000 unaccompanied migrant children have been apprehended at the southwestern U.S. border. Sometimes, they've been welcomed into the country by activists; other times they've been turned away by protesters.

President Barack Obama has called the flood of migrant children seeking refuge from violence and poverty in Central America a "humanitarian crisis at the border." Earlier this month, he requested $3.7 billion from Congress to respond to the crisis and urged Central American leaders to discourage more children from attempting the dangerous journey through Mexico, where they are targets for local criminal gangs and drug cartels.

The number of migrant children hailing from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala has more than doubled since last year. But who are these young people and why are they coming in such large numbers?

Elizabeth Kennedy, a Fulbright Scholar who's been working in El Salvador, has some answers. As part of her research in the capital, San Salvador, on unaccompanied minor migrants, she interviewed more than 500 children and adolescents as they returned to El Salvador after being deported from Mexico.

She tells NPR's Robert Siegel that many of them are desperate.

"These are the most dangerous places in the world," Kennedy says. "The only place that has a higher murder rate than Honduras is Syria."

Of the 322 interviews she's analyzed, Kennedy says 109 interviewees "received direct threats that they could either join a gang or be killed."

"In most cases, Kennedy says, kids and teenagers leave Central America to avoid climbing levels of gang violence, extortion and drug trafficking. Sometimes, it's to find their family. Ninety percent of the young people she's interviewed have relatives in the U.S.; 50 percent have one or both parents there."

"The Mexican government has recently announced a new initiative to step up control of its southern border. Kennedy says El Salvador is feeling the effects. The migrant return center where she works has gone from receiving one or two buses of children twice a week to receiving more than six a week."

"But, Kennedy says, those kids will try again. She interviewed a 12-year-old boy who returned to El Salvador barefoot; he had been robbed of everything he owned.

"I asked him if he was going to try again," Kennedy says. "And he just burst into tears and said,'What would you do if you were me? I haven't seen my mom or my dad in 10 years ... and no one here loves me.' "

"Report Finds US Nuclear Plants Are Unprepared To Deal With Natural Disasters."

EXCERPT:

"US nuclear plants must better prepare for the risk of natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis and floods, said a report Thursday on lessons learned from Japan’s Fukushima crisis in 2011.

Current approaches to regulating nuclear safety “are clearly inadequate for preventing core-melt accidents and mitigating their consequences,” the report said.

As of now, US safety regulations are based on making sure nuclear plants can withstand equipment failures, loss of power and other malfunctions related to the design of the plant, otherwise known as design-basis events.

But history has shown that the biggest nuclear accidents in recent history — including at Fukushima Daiichi, Three Mile Island and Chernobyl —“were all initiated by beyond-design-basis events,” said the report.

Things like natural disasters, human errors and power outages “have the potential to affect large geographical regions and multiple nuclear plants,” said John Garrick, a nuclear engineer and co-author of the report.

“These include earthquakes, tsunamis and other geographically extensive floods and such things as geomagnetic disturbances,” Garrick told reporters."
