    Pulaski County authorities have dropped charges against two foreign military officers who were training at Fort Leonard Wood when they were arrested. The Rolla Daily News reports that Mohammed Mahmoud Omar Mefleh, of Jordan, and Antoine Chlela, of Lebanon, were charged in October with enticement of a child and harassment. Court records say the men allegedly approached a 12-year-old girl at a bus stop and asked her to enter their vehicle. Pulaski County prosecutor Kevin Hillman said Friday that the charges were dropped as part of an agreement that includes the men paying the cost of their incarceration. Hillman says...

She told officers they kept asking for sexual favors. The suspects are with a foreign military in a middle eastern country and are part of a training mission at Fort Leonard Wood, just a couple miles from where the attempted abduction took place.

    Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi made several decrees Thursday that will shape the country’s constitution and, he says, safeguard its “revolutionary” future. They include a ruling that none of his decisions can be overturned by any authority. Morsi gave the Constituent Assembly a two month deadline to finish drafting a new constitution, ruling that no authority may dissolve it until the country's defining document is completed. He further ruled that no authority may dissolve the Shura Council, the upper house of Egypt's parliament. In a move likely to bring criticism that the Egyptian president is inappropriately expanding his powers, he also...

He was forced to flee in July after he severely embarrassed the Tehran regime by broadcasting the woman's plight to the world. Unable to catch him, the Iranian police seized his wife, with her brother and father, and held them as hostages in Tehran's infamous Evin prison. His wife was incarcerated for 14 days. She was released only when Mr Mostafaei reached the safety of Norway and was beyond the regime's reach. But whether the Iranian...

A college football and baseball star who held a collegiate punting record. A professional football player with the Chicago Fire of the now-defunct World Football League who had also been a league-leading quarterback in the Continental Football League. But a Sun-Times examination found Mahmoud was never drafted by the Reds and didn't play for either football league. Central State University in Ohio, from which Mahmoud graduated, could not confirm his claimed record.

    In their litany of American presidents who met with hostile dictators, supporters of Barack Obama cite John F. Kennedy and his meeting with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev in Vienna in 1961. They leave out how it went. The earnest, young American president wanted to forestall any possibility of misunderstanding and to win Khrushchev’s commitment to the international status quo. The blustery, risk-taking Soviet premier wanted to bludgeon Kennedy into making concessions that would further the Soviet goal of global revolution. With such clashing objectives, the two leaders didn’t exactly hit it off. When Kennedy thought he was being accommodating, Khrushchev...

The authorities have chosen the height of summer for a new crackdown to ensure that women cover their heads with veils and their bodies with long, heavy overcoats whenever they can be seen in public. For years, Iran's police turned a blind eye when young women pushed the boundaries of the rules by wearing the flimsiest of veils,...

Of course, he mostly played indoor, or salon soccer, on a smaller-than-normal field. Today, the fleet-footed footballer-turned-president of Iran is using the same tools in his war of wills with the United States. There are many within Iran, however, who suspect that “the monkey,” as the bearded president is known among detractors, is playing a game whose rules he does not understand, on a playing field too vast for his skill set. “He...

    Nuclear Arms: The U.S. now says it will join Europe in nuclear talks with Iran and that it'll no longer threaten military action if Tehran stops enriching uranium. We wonder: Are we giving up too much?We greatly admire Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and are confident in her abilities as diplomat and security strategist. But we also believe that the essence of diplomacy lies in backing words with deeds -- letting potential foes know that America's threats aren't empty.It is the explicit threat of military action that makes meaningful diplomacy possible. If the other side doesn't think it faces consequences...

    Mr George Bush, President of the United States of America For sometime now I have been thinking, how one can justify the undeniable contradictions that exist in the international arena -- which are being constantly debated, specially in political forums and amongst university students...There are prisoners in Guantanamo Bay that have not been tried...Lies were told in the Iraqi matter...September eleven was not a simple operation. Could it be planned and executed without coordination with intelligence and security services – or their extensive infiltration? Of course this is just an educated guess. Why have the various aspects of the attacks...

    Iran's arab-parast president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here on Monday, "Iranian and Sudanese governments and nations are friends and brothers and would maintain supporting one another and two pillars of the islamic (arabs) culture." Mullahs' regime president made the comment in its joint press conference with newly arrived visiting Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, adding, "Sudan is a large and important African country, with a great regional and international role, and Iran-Sudan ties, as two important and independent countries, are always improving." Ahmadinejad emphasized, "The Iranian and Sudanese nations and governments have a joint enemy, that is constantly after creating obstacles...

    Rogue mullahs11:17 PM PST on Friday, January 20, 2006 The horrible prospect of Iran gaining a nuclear weapon now appears inevitable. The United States has the power to stop the mullahs, but lacks the political will. The United Nations has neither. So at this point, fostering regime change from within Iran, a long shot, is likely the only hope. After more than two years of ineffectual talks, the so-called EU-3 -- France, Britain and Germany -- admitted this week that its negotiations with the mullahs had collapsed. This inevitable failure was plain for all to see, since the efforts began...

    Iran to Host Holocaust Deniers Conference By Julie Stahl CNSNews.com Jerusalem Bureau Chief January 12, 2006 Jerusalem (CNSNews.com) - Iran reportedly plans to host a conference of Holocaust deniers in the coming weeks, much to the concern of some Israelis. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sparked international anger when he said late last year that the Holocaust was a myth and suggested that if Europe were so upset about it, Europe should provide land for a Jewish State. Ahmadinejad's comments came just weeks after he said that Israel should be "wiped off the map." The Association of Islamic Journalists in Iran...

    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today reiterated his Holocaust denial and called for the ethnic cleansing of Israel. Last week, Ahmadinejad questioned Jewish roots in Israel, denied the Holocaust, and in October, he called for Israel to be "wiped off the map." The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is circulating an online letter to Kofi Annan, the UN Secretary-General, and Javier Solana, the EU High Representative. It states: Punitive measures must be adopted. Iran’s external assets can be frozen. Iran’s fanatical leadership can be prevented from addressing their message of hate to the international community, as President Ahmadinejad did when he spoke to...

    "As soon as I saw his picture in the paper, I knew that was the bastard," retired Army Col. Charles Scott, 73, a former hostage told the Times. "He was one of the top two or three leaders." Added Scott, "The new president of Iran is a terrorist." Scott is one of at least six former hostages who have stated that they believe the men are one in the same. This is being viewed as an issue that can further complicate an already very complicated situation, as the U.S. seeks to keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons and from continuing...
  • Iranian Reformists Fear Era of Repression; Police Attack Peaceful Protesters-(Iran; bad news)

    With bone-cracking brutality, the waves of baton-wielding police seemed to confirm what the already demoralised Iranian reform movement had been dreading: the dawn of a new era of political repression. Several hundred pro-reformists had gathered outside Tehran University to demand the release of a jailed dissident journalist, Akbar Ganji, who is in the fifth week of a hunger strike, when they were confronted by massed ranks of officers. In the melee, large numbers of demonstrators, including several women, were hurt. Among the injured were a former reformist MP, Mousavi Khoeini, who had a broken rib after being hit with an...
