[KhaamaPress] Tensions sparked the world as the US military assassinated the second most powerful Iranian, General Qasem Soleimani, head of the Quds Forces.
Historically, Iran has kept close and behind the curtain ties with the Taliban through logistic and financial support to this group.
Soleimani was the architect of the pro-Iranian turbans and a feared enemy of the ISIS group, the United States’ and Soddy Arabia ...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face... ’s interest in the Middle East thus considered with high regard by a number of Iranians.

[Babylon Bee] DES MOINES, IA‐Authorities are warning that a gang of known criminals is currently holding a meeting to debate various plots to steal your money.
The criminals are debating exactly how much of your money to steal. Some are suggesting stealing all of your money, while others would just like to steal most of your money. Whatever the case, they all agree on two things: A.) you have money and B.) it must be stolen.
"I know!" shouted one of the criminals, an older man with frizzy hair, known throughout the criminal underworld as a seasoned veteran when it comes to stealing people's money. "We could lower ourselves in through people's roofs and grab stuff like in that new movie the kids are talking about, Impossible Mission!"
"That movie is called Die Tough, you dummy," snapped one female gangster with the chiseled features of a Native American. "I think we should lie in wait in the bushes outside the mouth of a canyon in the American Southwest. Then, when the unsuspecting white man comes riding through on his horse or Tesla, we tomahawk 'em." She made a tomahawk gesture with her hand, only for another elderly man on the other side of her to grab her hand and begin sniffing it.
"Stealing money is an American pastime," he said as the frightened woman pulled her hand away. "Back in the '20s, Hotbox Nixon and Tommy-Gun Joe and I used to go driving around, taking down no-good ne'er-do-wells with our Tommy guns. Pow! Bang! Rat-a-tat-tat!"
"What were we talking about again?" he asked, snapping out of a daydream and realizing he'd been addressing a blank wall the entire time.
These goofy criminals may seem like characters out of a family-friendly screwball comedy, but authorities have warned that their plans to steal your money are very, very real.
[Times of Israel] Tel Aviv rally by high school students under banner ’Demanding Change’ criticizes Rafi Peretz for saying a ’normal family is a man and a woman’.
Thousands of high school students held a demonstration Wednesday protesting remarks last week by Education Minister Rafi Peretz in which he appeared to call same-sex marriage unnatural.
The students and teachers rallied in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square under the slogan "Demanding Change."
The demonstration was organized by student councils from several high schools, with buses bringing protesters to the event, Hebrew media reported.
"Ministers and politicians who are supposed to be leading the country, who are supposed to represent all of the various communities and the different sexual tendencies, they can’t come along and say what is normal, they can’t come and trample entire communities, people with feelings and thoughts," she said.
However, Koren made it clear that the demonstrators were not demanding that Peretz resign.
"We are not against Rafi Peretz, we are not against the ideas of anyone," she said, but rather against the way political leaders have expressed themselves.
When the education minister defines "normal" as being heterosexual, it contradicts students’ education about tolerance and being considerate of others, Koren explained.

JOHANNESBURG (AP) ‐ Researchers say they have successfully created another embryo of the nearly extinct northern white rhino in a global effort to keep the species alive. Just two animals remain, and both are female.
The viable embryo is just the third to be created in a lab with eggs taken from the females and inseminated with frozen sperm from dead males, according to Wednesday’s statement. The embryos are stored in liquid nitrogen to be transferred into a surrogate mother ‐ a southern white rhino ‐ in the coming months.
"It’s amazing to see that we will be able to reverse the tragic loss of this subspecies through science," said Kenya’s wildlife minister, Najib Balala, in the statement by the Kenya Wildlife Service and conservationists from Kenya, the Czech Republic, Germany and Italy.
The ultimate goal is to create a herd of at least five animals that could be returned to their natural habitat in Africa. That could take decades.
[National Interest] Key Point: Today, the .38 Special is still popular, particularly among those who prefer the simplicity and aesthetic of revolvers.
The .38 Special is one of the most durable cartridges in history. Introduced in 1898 as the .38 Smith & Wesson Special, it was meant to upgrade the U.S. Army’s firepower. The Army’s .38 Long Colt cartridge proved mediocre at stopping Philippine insurgents in close-quarters combat‐the .38 Special was one proposed remedy.
Although the Army eventually chose a different caliber (the .45 ACP), .38 Special eventually became one of the most popular cartridges in America. The .38 Special became popular with police in the Depression era, when a heavier round that could penetrate the car bodies of motorized bandits was needed. The round was soft-shooting and easy to train police recruits on. The round reigned supreme among law enforcement until the 1970s and 1980s, when 9mm high-capacity semi-automatic handguns became popular.
Today, the .38 Special is still popular, particularly among those who prefer the simplicity and aesthetic of revolvers. It is inexpensive and available in a wide variety of configurations, from regular ball ammo to hollow points to high pressure +P rounds. Here are five of the best guns you can shoot .38 Special out of.
I've been seeing info on a pistol Ruger released in December 2019. It is the Ruger 57. "With an MSRP of $799.00, but retailing for as low as $600 via some dealers, the Ruger-57 is well under half the general retail value of the Five-seven which usually clocks in at or above a whopping $1,300."
Apparently the boogie man is real, and he works for the CIA.
[Rudaw] In the wake of the most recent tensions between the US and Iran, signs of a new warfare in the Middle East have appeared: important and new events are no longer going to happen on the ground, but in the air.
[Campus Reform] Over a third of young Americans do not believe that the United States is the greatest country in the world.
In a recent Pew Research poll, 47 percent of Democrat and Democrat-leaning Americans between the ages of 19-29 prefer other countries over the U.S, while 19 percent of Republicans within the same age group agree.
The poll also showed that 36 percent of this age group say other countries are greater than the U.S.
The survey was conducted as part of a larger study by the Pew Research Center in September about partisanship as "the dividing line in the American public’s political attitudes."
The findings showed that within the age group of 19-29, 47 percent of adult Democrat and Democrat-leaning individuals believe that there are other countries better than the United States, while within the same age group, 19 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning individuals agree. That leaves only 53 percent of young Democrats who prefer the United States to any other country, while 81 percent of young Republicans favor America.
The same survey found 36 percent of all young Americans within the ages of 19-29 believe other countries are better than the U.S, leaving only 64 percent who believe in American exceptionalism.
When the same age group was asked their opinion about America being a military superpower, 55 percent of Democrats in the same age group responded that they wouldn’t mind if other countries could be as militarily powerful as the U.S. Even a sizeable percentage of Republicans of the same age group agreed, with 38 percent agreeing with their Democrat counterparts.
So they shouldn't be surprised or disappointed when their queer studies and barista science master's degrees don't generate enough income to pay off that six figure student tuition loan.

[Genesius Times] - Video uploaded to Twitter shows Iranian students attending Tehran’s Behesti University carefully walking around the United States and Israeli flags after they were painted on the pavement.
This small but important event reflects a broader change in attitude in the country and officially puts it below Portland, Oregon as the place that hates America most.
"This year’s report shows that Iran, who have held the number one position in places that hate America for several decades, have lost their grip on the top position," report author Vin Deesell said. "Portland have stormed to the lead on the backs of America-hating Antifa." Vin Deesell? *snort*
Portland residents celebrated the news by burning several thousand American flags and copies of the US constitution.
