Like I said yesterday, there’s quite a few things going on in the world that aren’t getting much attention with the problems over in Japan. Let’s talk about a couple more.
North Korea Gets Antsy
“Bad Stuff” is still happening over on the Korean peninsula. The North Koreans have been disrupting GPS receivers using a Russian GPS jammer. The goal of these antics is to disrupt South Korean communications during ongoing military training exercises.
Of course this affects civilian gear as well, and several large metropolitan areas are affected as well. Go figure.
Now to make matters even more entertaining, South Korea believes that North Korea is very close to completing an EMP bomb. And we all know what that sort of thing can do.
And of course we know that the North Koreans would NEVER give weapons and technology to folks that don’t like us, right? Oh wait….they like to do exactly that…
TSA Strikes Again
The radiation levels that you’re subjected to is no problem at all. So they say.
Well, we just found out that the scanners are generating 10x more radiation than they’re supposed to.
Of course this is supposedly just an error by the people measuring the radiation, and the scanners are perfectly safe!
Remind me again why we put up with these people?
Slaughter in Itamar
This is very difficult to write about because I have kids in the same age range as the Fogel family.
On March 11 Palestinian terrorists walked into the home of an Israeli family and brutally slaughtered them. A family with five children.
The terrorist slaughtered the parents, ages 36 and 34, and two of the children. A four year old boy and a young infant girl.
Thankfully two of the other children, an eight year old and a two year old, were sleeping in the other room and were missed.
The fifth child, their twelve year old daughter, was at youth group at the time, and when she came home she walked into the house to find her family members slaughtered.
Predictably, the Palestinians rejoice and celebrate in the streets. Folks, this is the face of militant Islam. There are people out there that would love to see this kind of violence and terrorism come to our shores.
Here’s a few links to stories with more details. I’m warning you ahead of time, though. The survivors and relatives of the Fogel family have released graphic photos of the scene. They are extremely disturbing, but the family feels that it is time for people to see just what the terrorists are doing, instead of brushing it under the table.
From their news release:
These photos were released by the family. They have given full permission for their use and they to ask you to report on the horrific reality of murdering children and babies in their sleep, simply because they are Jewish.
