#3  Fred, Lana as a subject is just too juicy.

The little spark that would become a fire.

Turner was spotted at a local snack bar.

Early on she met the Gipper.

This 17 year old had that something.

Then that something reached the age of majority.

In WWII our boys kept their spirits up with the help of Lana.

Jungle or snow, Lana always helped the troops stand tall.

The war's over, time for a peace dividend.

During the Korean War she held down the home front.

Her career reached it's zenith in the 50s but her personal life hit it's nadir.

Lana was a pre-Bond girl.*

She turned to the Broadway Stage near the end of her career.

The warm afterglow of a great career.

The flame is dying down.

*The affair with mobster Johnny Stompanato.

*In the fall of 1957, Stompanato followed Turner to England where she was filming Another Time, Another Place, costarring Sean Connery, later of James Bond fame. Fearful that Turner was having an affair with Connery, Stompanato stormed onto the set brandishing a gun. Connery managed to land a single punch to Stompanato's jaw and took away his gun. Stompanato was soon deported by Scotland Yard for the incident.

Six Taliban killed as troops advance in Bajaur Agency
Security forces on Monday continued pounding Taliban hideouts as six more Taliban were killed before forces regained control of Inayat Qilay area in Bajaur Agency, official sources said.

Security forces are now advancing into Mamond tehsil, military sources told Daily Times. They said the troops, backed by helicopter gunships and artillery, had killed six Taliban. The security forces also blew up several militants' hideouts at Inayat Qilay, Badsamor and Umrai areas during the operation, they added.

Curfew: The Taliban, meanwhile, fired rockets and mortars at Civil Colony. The armament landed in open fields and no loss of life has been reported. However, a shop was destroyed in Khar when the Taliban fired rockets in the area. Following the rocket attack, the political administration imposed curfew in Khar for an indefinite period.

Khar Assistant Political Agent (APA) Iqbal Khattak said the administration had imposed a curfew because the tribesmen have failed to protect the area and militants have initiated rocket attacks in the agency headquarters. The administration has further tightened security in the agency and established special checkposts at business centres.

Ready for talks: Also on Monday, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Maulvi Umer announced the TTP was ready to negotiate with the government, adding that it wants to engage in dialogue to find a solution to all problems.

Al Qaeda leader threatens India in latest video
A video received by the BBC from an Al Qaeda leader believed killed last year warned India that it would have to pay a 'heavy price' if it tried to attack Pakistan.

Sheikh Mustafa Abu Yazeed, who had been operating in Afghanistan and Pakistan, was reported killed in a US drone strike in August 2008.

In the 20-minute video in Arabic, Yazeed said: "We will bring mujahideen and suicide attackers from all over the Muslim world to confront you [India]. They will target your economic centres and raze them to the ground," Yazeed said in the video sent to BBC. He said Al Qaeda leader Aiman Al-Zawahiri had made the decision to kill former Pakistani prime minister and PPP chairwoman Benazir Bhutto.

The Al Qaeda leader also criticised the Pakistani government and army. He also denounced the ban on militant organisations in Pakistan following the Mumbai attacks.

On a separate note, seemingly premature MSM-NET Reports on YAZEED's death, among other noted Radical Islamist Milit-Terr personages, again shows why I request for death pics to be openly published.

Taliban shelling kills 14 civilians in Darra
Fourteen civilians, including 11 schoolchildren, and a soldier were killed in a mortar attack by the Taliban in Darra Adam Khel, an official statement said on Monday.

The incident marks the largest number of civilian casualties in a single attack by the Taliban. According to an official statement, the Taliban were targeting security forces' checkposts in nearby areas when the mortars hit the school.

"The schoolchildren killed were less than 15 years old. They died when two mortars hit a Girls Primary School near Qasimkhel village on main Indus Highway. Fifteen people were also wounded in the attack," local resident Faridullah Amin told Daily Times from Darra, 45 kilometres south of Peshawar.

Timed attack: Local residents said the Taliban had been firing mortars at the forces' positions since midday. They said at 2pm, one mortar landed in the school, mere minutes after the children had finished their classes. "As the first mortar landed in the school, many students rushed outside to see what had happened. At that time, a second mortar landed in the school, killing most of them," Faridullah added.

"The school ground was red with the children's blood and parents found it hard to find the remains of their kids," said an eyewitness. "Loud screams echoed the area when the news of children killed in the mortar fire spread," he added.

Protest: Following the attack, an angry mob of around 200 people protested the killings by blocking a highway linking the town with Peshawar. Nobody has claimed responsibility for the shelling so far. Security forces have also denied any involvement. "No military operation is currently underway in the area," a security official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

However, the official military statement stated: "At least 13 civilians were killed when Taliban fired mortar shell from Mirwali direction." It added that a soldier had also been killed in the attack.

FBI woman sexually harassed me: 26/11 accused terrorist
MUMBAI: The probe into the November 26 Mumbai terror attack took an unusual twist with one of the accused, Faheem Ansari, levelling sexual harassment allegations against a woman officer of America's Federal Bureau of Investigation. An FBI team is conducting an independent probe into the attacks.
"She wouldn't lemme alone! Time after time! All through the night!"
Faheem has moved the court with his lawyer Ejaz Naqvi filing an application before an Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate alleging that a woman FBI officer, who had interrogated the accused, had "sexually harrassed him all through the night."
"And the hickeys! I'm so ashamed!"
The court issued a notice on Monday to the city police's crime branch and directed it to file their reply to the application by February 26.
"What should we say, chief?... Chief?... Should I get you a glass of water?"
The application also made a plea for Faheem to be sent for medical check-up as he has developed "itches and wounds in his private parts and all over his body".
"This is gonna hurt, but it usually clears that sort of thing up right away. But no sexual harrassment for two weeks!"
"Faheem had been interrogated by three FBI officers out of which one of them, a woman officer, had sexually abused him," Naqvi told the court.
"She had... hips! And... And... She had... thighs!... And her... And her bosom! Mama mia!"
Faheem had earlier filed an application seeking action against the city police for allegedly allowing the FBI to interrogate him.
"Interrogations! Interrogations! Getcher interrogations right here! Only a nickel!"
The Crime Branch will have to file their reply on whether any foreign investigating agencies like the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had been allowed to interrogate the accused in the November 26 terror attacks case. "According to Indian law, no foreign agency can be allowed to interrogate an Indian suspect and we have sought relief from the court," Naqvi said.

Faheem and his associate Sabauddin Ahmed, are in the custody of the Crime Branch till February 17. The Crime Branch is investigating whether the duo was responsible for providing data regarding locations targeted by terrorists during the November 26 attacks. Ansari and Sabauddin were arrested last year in connection with the 2007 New Year eve attack on a CRPF camp in Rampur in Uttar Pradesh. The lone terrorist, Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, arrested in the November 26 terror strikes is also presently in police custody till February 13.

#5  Can't be anything in our sense of the word (sexual harassment), but in the realm of a fellow from Pakistan who probably live 75% with his head on the prayer rug and the remaining time at a madrassa, then the mere same-room presence of a female explains (doesn't justify) his anguish.

#6  AMong that culture, women are to procreate more terrorists, sexuality and sensuality in a relationship is reserved for goats, sheep and little boys.

I think this is an excellent way to interrogate one of these extremists. Have a woman interrogate them NAKED...shame them, disorient them and then question them for hours on end.....

I think this is very insightful on the mindset of the people we are dealing with.

One Palestinian killed as Israel strikes Gaza
A Palestinian fighter was killed by Israeli shelling on Monday after Israeli warplanes struck the Gaza Strip following fresh rocket fire from the besieged territory, medics and security sources said.

Khaled al-Kafarneh, 22, was killed when an artillery shell hit his house in Beit Hanun in the north of the Hamas-run territory, medics said. Islamic Jihad said the Palestinian was a member of its armed wing and that he was killed by Israeli fire near the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun while trying to attack Israeli troops along the frontier.

The Israeli army said it was checking into the reports.

Israeli warplanes also carried out air strikes in the south of the territory, causing damage but no injuries, after militants fired two rockets into Israel on Sunday.

The violence comes as Egypt continued efforts to broker a lasting truce in the strip to replace shaky mutual ceasefires called by Israel and Hamas on January 18, ending Israel's massive 22-day war on the impoverished territory.

An Israeli helicopter also carried out a raid in an unpopulated area of Beit Lahiya in northern Gaza, but caused no casualties.

Palestinian fighters fired two rockets on Sunday into southern Israel that caused no injuries, an Israeli military spokesman said.

#1  Rockets, retaliatory airstrikes. Seems like we've slipped right back into the good, old, comfortable status quo.
Posted by: Ebbang Uluque6305 || 02/10/2009 11:50 Comments || Top||

#2  My devious mind has just produced a thought that troubles me. Hamass, on behalf of Iran, may be keeping the violence at just the appropriate level to drain Israeli defense funds, preventing Israel from having the financial ability to respond to a major coordinated attack on its territory by Syria, Hezbollah, and others. The constant drain of resources HAS to be costing Israel a bundle, not to mention the high cost of maintaining an army in the field, even in its own territory. If Obama cuts off funds to Israel, they may have a hard time defending themselves.

IDF confirms killing Islamic Jihad gunman in Gaza
An Islamic Jihad militant died in a clash with Israel Defense Forces troops and Israel Air Force jets struck two targets in Gaza early Monday as mediators tried to firm up a long-term Gaza cease-fire a day before Israelis go to the polls in a national election.

Islamic Jihad said in a statement faxed to reporters that one of its fighters was killed overnight in an Israeli airstrike. The IDF said troops spotted an armed militant trying to cross the Gaza-Israel border late Sunday and opened fire, after which a bomb belt he was wearing detonated.

Islamic Jihad had earlier said the man killed was on a mission to attack an Israeli patrol along the border with the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, the Islamic Jihad group said. The IDF denied that tank fire or strikes of any kind were carried out around the time of the man's death, and the circumstances of the incident remained unclear.

Islamic Jihad said the Palestinian killed near the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun belonged to its armed wing and that he was part of a squad that had planned to attack Israeli troops along the frontier.

Earlier on Monday, the Israel Air Force hit two Hamas positions in Gaza in response to rocket attacks on Israel launched by militants in the coastal strip on the preceding day, the army said.
