To My Readers:

Just thought I’d pass along word that I’m still recovering, but doing well. I appreciate all the kind thoughts and prayers everyone has shared. I should be feeling better than ever in about a week and a half or so the doctor said. I think the daily news will continue to be “down” for a few more days. I’ve got some ideas I’d like to implement on the blog as well, so I think it’s a good time to take advantage of my situation and do some “behind the scenes” maintenance.

I hope everyone is doing well — Take care & Stay Safe!

Following are “old” news links for articles between Aug. 11 & 13. Since I am “behind” due to my recuperation I will publish “make-up” posts as I am able…

To my readers:
This issue of News Links is incomplete. I will add the rest of today’s links as soon as I am able. I wanted to let everyone know that I will be having a medical procedure done on my neck in the morning (8/11/06) so there will probably be no news links for several days. I am still planning on keeping up to date, and adding information regarding the Heathrow Terrorist Plot. Thanks for your support, prayers, & understanding. – Michelle

UPDATE: (8/13/06)
The procedure on my neck went well. I’m on some pretty strong pain killers for the next few days at least, so I’m not sure what I’ll be able to get done this coming week or so. I have finished pulling together this list though, and it is now complete… I’ll post again soon! – Michelle

Authorities say 5 other suspects are still at large (as of 9:00 pm (CST), and are being hunted by police agencies across the globe. Governments and security agencies around the world have raised terror threat levels for air travel in response to the foiled plot.

The reality: RUSSIA and the Ukraine currently top the world abortion league, with more of the operations carried out here than anywhere else on earth. Evidence gathered by the Moscow police department has shown a growing black market in aborted foetuses, which are smuggled into Russia from the Ukraine and Georgia.

Here, poverty-stricken young women are paid 200 U.S. dollars to carry babies up to the optimum eight to 12-week period – thought to be best for harvesting stem cells. They are then sold on to cosmetic clinics.

QUOTE:

If as the president of the Reform Party in Syria, Farid Ghadry claims, “Ahmadinejad is planning an illumination of the night sky over Jerusalem to rival the one that greeted the Prophet of Islam on his journey,” then it is difficult to imagine anything other than a full-scale Iranian nuclear attack. As Spencer continues, “a nuclear attack on Jerusalem or even an all-out conventional assault against Israel by Iran would be consistent with Ahmadinejad’s oft-repeated denials of Israel’s right to exist and recent predictions that its demise was at hand.” These observations are the latest from a growing list of ominous portents from Iranian and Syrian leaders too horrific to ignore.

I am a little behind right now, some of the following links have been hiding for a while in my bookmarks. Wednesday’s Issue will be large as I clean out my Email Inbox for the last 2 days or so. I also included some extra information on how you can help our troops that are currently serving in many parts of the world. They deserve our support. Please help in any way you can.
Thanks! – Liberty Rocks
