US Flies B52s into China's Expanded Air Defense Zone

November 26, 2013

WASHINGTON — Two long-range American bombers have conducted what Pentagon officials described Tuesday as a routine training mission through airspace recently claimed by China as its “air defense identification zone.”The Chinese government said Saturday that it had the right to identify, monitor and possibly take military action against aircraft that enter the area, which includes sea and islands also claimed by Japan. The claim threatens to escalate an already tense dispute over some of the maritime territory.American officials said the pair of B-52s carried out a mission that had been planned long in advance of the Chinese announcement last weekend, and that the United States military would continue to assert its right to fly through what it regards as international airspace.

Secret US-Iran Talks Set Stage For Nuke Deal

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The United States and Iran secretly engaged in a series of high-level, face-to-face talks over the past year, in a high-stakes diplomatic gamble by the Obama administration that paved the way for the historic deal sealed early Sunday in Geneva aimed at slowing Tehran's nuclear program, The Associated Press has learned.

The discussions were kept hidden even from America's closest friends, including its negotiating partners and Israel, until two months ago, and that may explain how the nuclear accord appeared to come together so quickly after years of stalemate and fierce hostility between Iran and the West.

But the secrecy of the talks may also explain some of the tensions between the U.S. and France, which earlier this month balked at a proposed deal, and with Israel, which is furious about the agreement and has angrily denounced the diplomatic outreach to Tehran.

Regarding that upcoming Bonnie and Clyde Mini Series to be shown "on three networks!"

We will learn that Clyde was actually an Alien and Bonnie was forced into the crime spree by a time traveling Obamadevil.

The three networks being A&E, History and Lifetime.

Race Relations and the Thermostat

One half of my family is Scotch-Irish get drunk at the beach and burn to a crisp white. The other half is Mexican (of the indigenous, have great aunts who speak more Nahuatl than Spanish when alone together type). When the two groups are together one side can never believe how warm/cold the other likes to keep their house. The Celts liking the cold and the Mexicans no so much. I tend to take after the white side, my brothers the Amerindians. I remember in college I had an African American GF who eventually wouldn't stay over night because "it is like a deep freeze in your apartment." Recently I saw an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm in which Larry David was arguing with his African American house guests The Blacks, about the temperature in the house, with them telling him he kept it too cold and his insisting they liked it too hot. Anybody else encountered this phenomena?

How long does one have to quit smoking to say non-smoker when applying for insurance?

Do policies define it?

"he knows how to do this

He knows how to play this game." Listening to zimmermans gf 911 and then his CYA call. There should be no doubt left in anyone's mind that he is a manipulative psychotic bully. Hopefully these assholes don't ALWAYS get away.
