#2 Sadly, women tend to be like dogs and horses in that you form a wholly unique relationship with each of them which cannot be replicated with any one or anything else. But as with dogs and horses, they simply do not last physically as long as men do. This is comlicated by the number of young women with Daddy issues.
Roger that Jpal, roger that. the which of the why of them is beyond all interpretation and worse they come in all those intriguing even addictive forms. I was concentrated on the intensity and time sensitive nature of the relationship more than the ongoing practical aspects.
[FoxNews] Police said the suspect was shot after firing upon officers.
Three Chicago police officers were shot Thursday morning while taking a violent carjacking suspect into custody outside a police station on the city’s West Side, authorities said.
The suspect also was shot after the gunfire erupted around 9:40 a.m. in the Belmont Cragin neighborhood outside the 25th District police station, Chicago Police Supt. David Brown told reporters outside Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
The suspect fired multiple gunshots at police during the arrest, Brown said, striking several officers.
One officer suffered a gunshot wound to his chin and neck, and also was hit in his bulletproof vest, Brown said. Police later added that the officer underwent surgery and was on a breathing tube at Illinois Masonic Medical Center. As of Thursday night, he was said to be in stable condition.
Other officers were getting treatment at Loyola Hospital: one was struck in the vest; another suffered a gunshot wound to his hip; and two other officers suffered chest pains. Those officers later were released.
[ToloNews] At least nine Taliban ...mindless ferocity in a turban... , including two leaders, were killed in festivities with security forces in central Ghazni province, the Ministry of Defense (MoD) said in a statement on Thursday.
The festivities started after the Taliban attacked security checkpoints in Khawja Omaeri district, the statement said, adding: "Fortunately, the Taliban attack has been pushed back by commando forces."
[Iraq Sun] Afghan officials say at least eight people were killed and dozens injured in a kaboom in the eastern province of Pashtun-infested Logar on July 30, just hours before a three-day cease-fire was to begin for the Moslem festival of Eid al-Adha ...a major Moslem holiday, marked by animal sacrifice and ritual rioting... The suspected boom-mobile went off in the central Azadi (Liberty) Square in the lovely provincial capital, Pol-e-Alam, which was packed with people shopping for Eid celebrations, according to local officials and eyewitnesses.
The Interior Ministry said in a statement that all the victims were civilians, with women and kiddies among the dead.
However, a poor excuse is better than no excuse at all... provincial police front man Shahpoor Ahmadzai said the attack targeted a police checkpoint and that there were security forces among the victims.
According to Ahmadzai, government forces had gathered in the city to prepare for security measures ahead of the Eid celebrations.
He said the civilian casualties were mainly in cars that had stopped at a checkpoint.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. The Taliban ...Arabic for students... denied involvement.
The Afghan government and the Taliban have agreed on a three-day ceasefire starting on July 31, the first day of Eid in Afghanistan.
The cease-fire is slated to last for the duration of the festival, which marks the end of the annual hajj pilgrimage.

Some preposterous, undecipherable internecine conflict between the Afghans and Paks? Talk about a win/win solution. Keep the imbecilic, malignant Paks busy while satisfying Afghan blood lust with handy targets. I say Yes!
According to a law enforcement source, there have been 22 homicides in Portland since 1 June. In all of 2019, there were only 36 homicides. Last month, @tedwheeler dismantled the Gun Violence Reduction Team because he and others said it was unfair to blacks.

What are the greater details and ratios of the homicides vs. Murders.
YES there is a difference between Murder and Homicide. Homicide includes Suicides, accidental shootings as well as Murders.
But with that pointed stated. Even if it was 33/33/33 that is a High Mental illness rate, High Idiot Rate, and Murder rate for a city that claims Social Justice, Peace and love of their fellow person or IT's.

[DAILYTIMES.PK] According to police, the incident took place due to a land dispute. The accused opened fire during the funeral prayers in which several people were maimed, some of whom are at death's door.
A heavy contingent of police has been deployed in the area while raids are being carried out to nab the culprits.
According to rescue officials, the injured have been shifted to District Head Quarter (DHQ) hospital for first aid.
[Rudaw] An Death Eater group on Wednesday released footage on their social media platforms purportedly showing the beheading of a former Kurdish Peshmerga soldier a year and a half after he was kidnapped in the Kurdistan Region's Garmiyan administration.
Asaad Ali, 33, from the administration’s village of Qalla, near Kifri town, was kidnapped alongside a shepherd friend by the White Flag group in February 2019 near Sarqala sub-district while the two were hunting. The shepherd was released after a short while, but Ali remained missing.
The White Flag group is thought to be one of a number of groups to have emerged from the fragments of ISIS since its ejection from Iraq's major urban centers in 2017.
"We had information that the White Flag holy warriors had killed this Kurdish man [in the past], but they published the video just now to terrorize people," Jamal Salah, mayor of the Zinana sub-district in Garmiyan, told Rudaw.
A brother of the dear departed told Rudaw that they had "knocked on many doors," but their efforts to rescue Assad from the clutches of the group were futile.
"After Assad was kidnapped, we did not hear anything from him," Hussein Ali, the brother of the beheaded, recalled to Rudaw.
"This is another Eid where our happiness is mixed with sorrow," the distraught brother said.
Karwan Hama Tal, the friend who had been kidnapped alongside Assad recounted the day they were kidnapped.
"They popped up all of a sudden. They forced us to face down. Then, they tied our hands behind our backs. After a short while, they released me," he said. "Although I begged them to let Assad go as well, they did not listen," the shepherd recalled.
a 24-year-old former Hamas operative, was arrested on June 28 after crossing into Israel by swimming through the maritime border. Hussein's investigation revealed that he acted independently when he crossed as a result of family disputes and persecution by Hamas members, according to the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency).
Hussein's investigation led the Shin Bet to acquire valuable information regarding Hamas's activity, training program and mentality.
In 2013, Hussein was drafted to Hamas's military wing and served from 2018 until his arrest by the Shin Bet as commander of one of Hamas's Air Defense surface-to-air missile units.
As part of his role, Hussein kept one of the missiles at home and was instructed to fire it at any IDF helicopter that lands in the vicinity of his house in Jabalia, northern Gaza, in order to kill or kidnap IDF soldiers.
As part of his training, Hussein was taught about Israeli Air Force vessels, anti-aircraft equipment and observation methods, in order to survey IAF activity on the border and in the skies over Gaza.
"IDF navy units arrested a Palestinian who swam across the border a month ago. The suspect was handed to the Shin Bet for further investigation," the IDF Spokesperson's Unit confirmed in a statement on Thursday.
[BenarNews] A Jakarta court on Monday convicted and sentenced the leader of an al-Qaeda-linked krazed killer group and his deputy on terrorism charges for helping rebuild Jemaah Islamiyah, an outlawed network blamed for the 2002 Bali bombings — Indonesia’s deadliest terror attack.
Separate panels at the East Jakarta District Court sentenced JI leader Para Wijayanto, 55, and Budi Tri Karyanto, 42, to seven years and six and a half years in prison, respectively, after finding them guilty of the charges, which included sending Jemaah Islamiyah members to Syria to fight alongside opposition rebels there.
Para restructured JI — al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Southeast Asia — after he assumed leadership of the organization following an Indonesian court ruling in 2008 that banned the group, the panel of judges at the East Jakarta District Court found.

[BenarNews] At least 12 suspected turbans and two government troops were killed during a major firefight in the southern Philippines on Wednesday as the military hunted for a big shot of an Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems.... -linked group, officials said.
At least 13 soldiers were maimed on the government side, including one who was at death's door at a military hospital, a Philippine Army front man said.

[Rudaw] Six people were killed in boom-mobileing at a Ottoman Turkish-controlled checkpoint in northeastern Syria, according to a conflict monitor. This is the latest blast in a deadly week in the area that was seized by Ottoman Turkish forces last fall.
A boom-mobile detonated at a checkpoint controlled by gangs backed by The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the decaying remnant of the Ottoman Empire... in Tal Halaf, to the west of Sari Kani (known as Ras al-Ain in Arabic) on Thursday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.
Six people were killed in the blast, including guards at the checkpoint, and more than 15 military personnel and civilians were maimed, according to the Observatory. Turkey’s Anadolu Agency reported five non-combatants were killed.
Syrian state media, SANA, said the number of casualties is expected to rise because the checkpoint was busy with people preparing for the MoslemEid al-Adha ...a major Moslem holiday, marked by animal sacrifice and ritual rioting... holiday on Friday.
Ottoman Turkish forces seized Sari Kani and a 120-kilometre stretch of the border in October last year as part of Operation Peace Spring, a military offensive launched by Ankara to clear the area of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) who control much of northeast Syria.
This is the fifth explosion to rock Sari Kani this week, according to the Observatory, killing and injuring about 50 people.

[Jpost] A source within Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force revealed in a conversation with the Kuwaiti newspaper, al-Jarida, that Juad His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah ...The satrap of the Medes and the Persians in Leb... , son of Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, managed to escape an liquidation attempt after "he arrived to deliver a message from his father to leaders of the Hashed a-Shaabi in Iraq."
According to the report before, the liquidation attempt, Nasrallah's son conveyed a secret message from his father to the commander of the Quds Force in Tehran and then arrived at Baghdad.
Jawad Nasrallah, son of Hizbullah ...Party of God, a Leb militia inspired, founded, funded and directed by Iran. Hizbullah refers to itself as The Resistance and purports to defend Leb against Israel, with whom it has started and lost one disastrous war to date, though it did claim victory... leader Sayyed His Eminence Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, has reportedly survived an liquidation attempt weeks ago in the Iraqi capital Baghdad, Kuwaiti al-Jarida newspaper said on Thursday.
Quoting a source in Iran's Quds Force, the daily said Jawad’s convoy came under fire from a car that was chasing him in the Jadiriya area in Baghdad.
The source stated that Jawad Nasrallah had traveled 3 weeks ago to Tehran with a special message from his father to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ...the very aged actual dictator of Iran, successor to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini... He said due to major breaches of the American and Israeli intelligence services, commander of the Quds Force, Brigadier General Ismail Qanni asked Hassan Nasrallah not to transmit any sensitive messages to the Iranian leadership except through people he trusted.
The content of the message was not disclosed, but the source said that Nasrallah the son, met a number of Iranian officials before traveling to Iraq to convey a message from his father to leaders of Iraqi factions loyal to Iran, as well as to visit Karbala and Najaf and to meet the Supreme Shiite authority in Iraq, Ali Sistani.
Before he was able to make the necessary contacts to meet Sistani, a vehicle chased him and opened fire before fleeing away, which necessitated his transfer to Basra to return to Tehran and from there by plane to Syria, then by land to Beirut, which he reached two days ago, according to al-Jarida.
