Firing from Syria kills 2 in Lebanon

Two rocket-propelled grenades fired from Syria on Saturday landed in a Lebanon border town, killing two people and wounding two others, Lebanon's National News Agency reported.

The victims in the Wady Khaled attack were Syrian refugees, the news agency said.

The Lebanese Red Cross issued conflicting numbers, saying one person was killed and four injured.

The victims were all from the same family and were transported to a hospital, said George Kettaneh, a spokesman for the Red Cross.

The fatality was a young girl, he said.

      It is obvious chrissy that you only associate with liberals. If they don't toe the same line they are not friends of yours.

    JFK did the same, chrissy. Students at Colubia University were overwhelmed with a man, JFK, and focused on HIM (as opposed to what he said in his last speech before being murdered) that JFKs last words aren't even recalled anymore. Like AA co-founder Dr. Bob's last words that went unheaded. "Don't louse this thing up, Bill W." Then bill w. proceeded to do just that....louse it up. (i hope you understand me, chrissy)

  5. John Fitzgerald Kennedy's last words

    "The High Office of the president has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American Freedom and before I leave office I MUST inform citizens of this plight!"-JFK speaking at colubia University 10 days before he was murdered.
    I say JFK knew what he was talking about. And that what he was talking about is occuring right now, and right in front of our very own eyes, and has been since Dwight David Eisenhower sent US Troops to protect his own personal banana plantations in S. America. (just as Bush Dynasty did for their personal Kuwaiti oil holdings, AND ditto their Caspian Basin holdings flowing through conquered afghan pipelines)

  6. Dwight David Eisenhowers last words

    Just before leaving office, Eisenhower gave a speech warning os something he himself had already been doing.
    He warned that if nothing was done, soon America would see a Military Industrial Complex being formed whereby US trrops would be used to further corporate interests aboroad. If you can't see this has been happening for decades, you are blind, I can open your eyes.
    Most credit Eisenhower with being the first to warn US of a military industrial complex. While hereinreality, he was just another corporate fascist dragging a bunch of craep he found in Nazi Germany and bringing it back to be used on US.

  7. Dwight David Eisenhowers last words

    LMAO. I twice misspelled Columbia University. "Colubia"...
    ...Colubia is what Grease Monkey is called in South America. (two men changing the oil in your car) Acourse you already knew that. 🙂
