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.

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.
[Name] let out a small laugh, "How about we go inside then?"
Alice blushed, realizing what slipped her tongue, "Y-Yes "
Walking toward the entrance, [Name] held the door open for her, "After you."
Uttering a polite 'thank you' as she passed by, Alice stepped into the café. She heard the little ringing of a bell above and felt the warm air rushed passed her, escaping through the open door. She shivered inwardly, the warmth seeping into her bones.

"That fucking asshole !" I growled under my breath as I mercilessly plucked the petals off the tiny yellow flower.
You see, today, I received a text message from my boyfriend, Eric saying it's over. But not only that, I also found out that he had been cheating on me with a girl in my college art class!
I heaved a sigh, 'Of course he would pick her of all people; she's the school slut. And that filthy bastard just loves sluts !' I thought bitterly.
But why was I in the park you ask? Well, after receiving the news, I took all of his clothes (Only his clothes though. The rest of his stuff I threw out the window or smashed it to bit), walked to his apartment, threw it in his face and then left. But not without telling him just what I thought about him and his new girlfriend in my very colourful vocabulary, of course~!

I will keep you company.
Do you remember all those years ago – when we first met? I remember it perfectly. I was so very close. So very, very close to my last shred of sanity snipping. 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.

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

Does abortion "liberate" women and free them from "male oppression?" Does it give
them "control" over their bodies and lives as some feminists promise? Or, has abortion hurt
women, bringing them pain, shame, guilt and regrets? They say that having an abortion is one of
the hardest things that a woman can ever do. If it is so hard and has so much guilt piled with it the
morality of it must be questionable. If there is need for guilt, for so willingly disposing of their

Mother Teresa said, "The greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion, which is war against the

The means of abortion are violent; indeed the means of destroying life are as brutal and disgusting

The Halo franchise has made a hefty impact on culture worldwide, most significantly Western culture, and millions across the globe have experienced the wonder of turning on the Xbox and hearing that timeless, haunting Gregorian melody which precludes the coming joyride. It's only natural that within the fan base there would be people who take the concept of being a "fan" to another level entirely. While many are "Normal mode" fans, these individuals would be best classified as "Legendary," or dare I say "Mythic mode" fans-- those who go above and beyond the call of duty (no pun intended) to express their love for Halo
