Obama, Putin/ America, SyriaBarack Obama (President of the United States of America, for those of you who live in a hole under a rock) has made the decision that he wants to send military forces to Syria, but Congress must approve of the idea before it is acted upon. The military (says Obama) will not be ground troops, but rather air-force instead, because bringing ground troops into Syria would put our troops into too much danger.Obama, Putin/ America, Syria1 year ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
Vladimir Putin (President of Russia) says he will defend Syria if we attack, claiming he has not approved, or would ever approve the chemical bombing that has been poured down on Syria. Putin said that the bombing is most likely being done by Assad's regime, who are against the government there. To back himself up, he also stated that the Pope would never let it happen.
Eleven other countries say that they will support America if we go through with Obama's suggestion. Mr. Cameron (British) could not get Parliament to agree to help.

Your mask looks stunning today. Congrats, many people have finally noticed you. It's nice to see that you're so happy... Although, I think you look just as beautiful without that mask. I also want you to know that we, I and all your friends and other loved ones, notice you everyday. (I apologize for taking you for granted if that's what's it; you're such a great person, though, and I learned to accept and expect that.) Lastly, I am glad to see you happy - and I'd be ecstatic to know that it isn't just a coat around your hollowness.
Hey, you, one of the people I love - I care about you. A lot. I need you on this world because I don't think I could handle this crazy ride without you. I need your shoulder for my tears so that I can be strong enough to be here for you now. I need your hand to hold when it's cold and you're desperate for warm temperatures. I'm here for you, too, when it comes to your heart. The ice may make it gleam beautifully, but I like w
Why Murdering the Chinese is WrongMy heart was still beating a little fast as I snuck into Captain Zhao's cabin and started hacking into his computer.

JC Denton Vs Iron ManAccording to his schematics, JC Denton knew that after hacking this keypad he would be in Tony Starks armory. His goal was clear. Secure the suits against Stark and then proceed upstairs and arrest the rogue billionaire. The security so far was a nightmare. The premises were riddled with security gadgets made by Stark himself, making them almost impossible to bypass without burning out his stack of multitools. Cameras, lasers, infrared detectors, pressure pads. Most doors, even the ones that led to the bathroom, required fingerprint scanning switches. Even outside, the perimeter was protected by many virtual fences. It has taken Denton hours to make it this far. Hours of moving in absolute silence, with tech goggles squeezing his head, wearing an overheating, because of its heavy usage, thermoptic camouflage and all that while carrying the heavy weaponry he would need if something would go wrong. So when Denton hacked the last digit of the keypad with his multitool, he couldn't hJC Denton Vs Iron Man2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

Alice looked up at the café in front of her. It was a one-story, brown-bricked building on the corner. The windows in front were large and nicely cleaned. It seemed nice and spacious with a few people inside, there to enjoy a warm beverage on a cloudy day. Alice watched in awe as the people inside sat and chatted, sipping their drinks.
"That would be lovely to have right now " she murmured absentmindedly.

Alice blushed, realizing what slipped her tongue, "Y-Yes "
Walking toward the entrance, [Name] held the door open for her, "After you."

And then I saw a peculiar little girl in white dress – you. Your left hand was occupied by a tattered doll. Your right was wet from wiping your tears. Your eyes began to water again, but I caught it for you that time. I still had a shred of humanity left, gnawing at my heart's strings to care for you, to pity, and to comfort. You were scared by my face, but I mustered a smile, and told you not to fear. You told me that you were lonely, that you were unloved.
And from that point on, I never left your side.

All was calm as a massive galleon cruised across the ocean's surface, its lion-head bowsprit and straw-hat wearing Jolly Roger noticeable anywhere. From its deck, one could hear merry music from a fiddle, and the members of the crew either singing or dancing along to it.
Joining them in the festivities was the captain of this ship known to all as "Thousand Sunny". That captain was none other than the famed Straw-Hat Luffy.
The song came to an end and the skeletal fiddler took a bow, his art complete. If he had a proper face, he would have smiled at the cheers.

During service he had dragged his ferrosteel body from the flaming wreckage of a particle tank on four separate occasions, once going back in to recover the memory core from a crushed comrade's skull. He dedicated himself to the cause not because of the propaganda or idealism, but because it was his job (and unlike the fleshies he knew how to do his job without whining, or stopping to rest every couple of days).

THE COLD AIR in Baron Rorke's study did little to calm his nerves. He was expecting visitors this night and they were not the best of company. A shiver of dread ran down his spine and he spent most of the twilight hours staring out of a large window which stood behind his writing desk. It was amazing, he felt, how quickly a man could become attached to a life of luxury; only to be made painfully aware of how easy it was to lose it. War was always a frightening thing, even more so when one had the knowledge and sense to realise that it was no longer an exercise of glory, but a simple festival of bloodshed and cold murder. In war it did not matter if you impaled a stranger on the edge of your sword, such a thing would be punishable in any city or country, but in times of war it became an accepted norm. If the man in front of you wore a different colour, then it was alright to kill him, it was alright to rip him apart fo
