    A Berkshire turkey farm has recruited an elite team of security guards to protect its precious flock of birds in the run-up to Christmas. King's Coppice Farm in Cookham Dean has 30,000 free-range turkeys, but has previously suffered hundreds of losses after foxes sneaked into their hutches - until the owner brought in some alpacas. Managing director Tom Copas, 32, said foxes would leap over electric fences, evade armed men and dodge traps to get at their birds. So, Copas told The Times, he had to take drastic measures - by adopting a couple of alpacas he named Sage and...

    Muslims and LA County sheriff launch anti-terrorism initiative PETER PRENGAMAN Associated Press LOS ANGELES - Muslim leaders from Southern California and Sheriff Lee Baca launched an initiative Wednesday to increase cooperation in the fight against terrorism and expand the role of American Muslims in denouncing extremist groups like al-Qaida. The Muslim-American Homeland Security Congress, with representation from nearly every prominent Muslim organization in Southern California, will share information on possible terrorist threats, create a youth council to reach Muslims who might feel alienated in American society and give religious leaders a collective platform to condemn terrorist acts. "Together, we will...
  • Terrorism Threat Justifies Troops on Borders - (time to get serious about infiltration threat)

    When other countries feel threatened by terrorism, their leaders do the most prudent thing they can think of: They deploy military forces along their borders, to help prevent infiltration. They figure, and rightly so, there is no force better equipped and trained to defend their sovereign territory. More so than police, federal agents, and volunteer civilians, however well-intended they may be. That's why it wasn't surprising to me to read this past weekend that Russian defense officials -- increasingly concerned about terrorists infiltrating from neighboring Georgia, where tensions have been growing -- ordered a beefed up military presence along the...
