    Iranian General Qassem Soleimani arrived at the Damascus airport in a vehicle with dark-tinted glass. Four soldiers from Iran’s Revolutionary Guards rode with him. They parked near a staircase leading to a Cham Wings Airbus A320, destined for Baghdad. Neither Soleimani nor the soldiers were registered on the passenger manifesto, according to a Cham Wings airline employee who described the scene of their departure from the Syrian capital to Reuters. Soleimani avoided using his private plane because of rising concerns about his own security, said an Iraqi security source with knowledge of Soleimani’s security arrangements. The passenger flight would be...

    It’s the Fourth of July weekend, so it’s fitting to hear a story about an eagle rescued by a veteran. Earlier this week, Jason Galvin and his neighbors noticed an eagle dangling from a tree near Rush City. Its leg was caught in a piece of rope that was wrapped around a branch, about 70 feet off the ground. “I thought it was dead at the time,” Jason said. “I took a closer look with binoculars and saw that the head was moving, and I knew it was very much alive.” Jason and his wife Jackie called the police, the...

    Iran's foreign ministry claimed that warplanes from the Saudi Arabia-led coalition involved in Yemen's ongoing war struck and damaged its embassy in Sanaa, yet another incident that could inflame tensions between Tehran and Riyadh. Iran condemned the strike, according to foreign ministry spokesman Hussein Jaberi Ansari. But it was not immediately clear if the Iranian embassy was targeted or if it got struck unintentionally amid the broader conflict within Yemen. That war pits the Shiite Muslim rebel Houthis supported by Iran against forces loyal to President Abdu Rabu Mansour Hadi, which are being backed militarily and otherwise by the overwhelmingly...

    Iran has accused Saudi-led coalition warplanes of "deliberately" bombing its embassy in Yemen's capital, Sanaa. State media quoted a foreign ministry spokesman as saying members of staff had been wounded in an air strike. Sanaa residents reported dozens of air strikes on Thursday by the coalition, which is battling Houthi rebels. However, residents and witnesses in Sanaa reported there was no damage to the embassy after the air strikes, Reuters and AP report.

    Ever since his CPAC Keynote Address in 2010, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) has been one of the gold standards of modern American political conservatism. He has also been widely hailed as a political model for conservative African American politicians. And now, following recent revelations surrounding the highly suspicious shooting of Trayvon Martin, Rep. West has joined a growing bipartisan consensus calling for the case to be reopened, possibly even with Federal assistance. West’s statement, put out today by Talking Points Memo, resonates with controlled fury (emphasis added): itself in Sanford, Florida involving the shooting of 17-year-old Treyvon Martin. First of...

    WOODY MARSHALL/wmarshall@macon.comLulu Campbell stands beside her bullet-riddled Toyota Tundra truck Monday. She was driving this truck when two men attempted to rob her Saturday night in Macon. The two men shot at her and she returned fire, hitting one of the robbers. WOODY MARSHALL — wmarshall@macon.comBuy Photo Looking at Lulu Campbell’s bullet-riddled silver Toyota Tundra, common sense says the 57-year-old grandmother should be dead. It’s impossible to tell how many bullets were fired at 2 a.m. Saturday morning on English Avenue, but what started as an armed robbery attempt turned into a full-blown firefight.

    Winter War: Finland's Simo Häyhä was probably the most prolific sniper in history.World War II saw the duel between Soviet sniper Vasili Zeitsev and his German counterpart Heinz Thorvald, which was the stuff that legends (and movies) are made of. Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock earned a reputation for disposing of Viet Cong and NVA officers. More recently, U.S. Army and Marine Corps snipers in Iraq and Afghanistan have proven the effectiveness of the single, precisely placed rifle bullet. Zietsev was credited with 242 kills, while Hathcock's total of 93 is just as impressive when you consider that some were executed...
