Its the second day of the New year already!
I have a new look on my blog, a new Nike+ mini me(thats exactly how I look when I run,minus the jacket though),cleaned the sweatshirt section of the closet and found several new ones and so a good start to a new year.If it involves clothes,I' m happy!
I want to start a new year of blogging with a shout out to my favorite people...the Armed Forces who are overseas.Without them we would not be able to do whatever we do today.
A big Thank you to them and their families
I would not be doing justice to my political blogging side without talking about the worst thing to come out of GA.Cynthia McKinney
She was with 16 people aboard a medical supply boat that collided with an Israeli naval ship Tuesday as it tried to enter coastal waters around Gaza.Lady,does the words"closed military zone" mean anything to you ?
It was reported by the ship she was on that the Israeli military fired machine guns into the water in an attempt to stop its progress.
(Taken from fox News)Israel's foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor told Reuters that an Israeli vessel and the 60-foot Free Gaza Movement boat did make "physical contact," but only after the aid boat failed to respond to radio contact. He denied any gunfire had occurred, and he said no one was hurt in the incident. He told Reuters the Israeli ship escorted the damaged boat back to Cypriot territorial waters.
Ambassador Reda Mansour is Consul General of Israel to the Southern United States hit the nail on the head when he said "Why take a small boat from Cyprus and sail in the middle of the night and surprise the Israeli navy near the coast of Gaza?" Mansour asks. "The only explanation we could think of is that it was an act of provocation to get some titles in the media," he contends. "It's just unfortunate. We also have to mention when she was escorted outside the Gaza area, instead of coming back to Cyprus she detoured the ship and went to Lebanon where she was received as a hero by Hezbollah leaders."
