Embassies close in fear of more protests

Several diplomatic facilities were shuttered Friday as many brace for intensified protests over the anti-Islam movie "Innocence of Muslims," as well as recently published cartoons in a French publication of a figure resembling the Prophet Mohammed.

Demonstrations have raged for days as many in the Muslim world are angry about the U.S.-made film mocking the Prophet Mohammed and the French cartoons. And some believe Friday prayers, a time of protest recently in the Middle East and North Africa, could add fuel to the fire.

Demonstrations occurred in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran Thursday.

    ...happy to learn that AIDS came from a lab and not from them as many claim.
    But alas, they are not. Nor is hardly anyone else. Everyone seems to be happy with the idea that AIDS came from african monkeys (which is true) and that it's just another problem. Nothing a condom can't take care of. (which is totally rediculous if you know anything about AIDS)
    suitcherselves. 🙂

    In any case, it is some of the truth that is absent from our history books.
    Books can show what the Government wants to record as truth verses what is truth

      Actually, I am just bored...every one is gone right now, I walked, I rode my bike, I finished my chores, I finished my book, (and I don't have the library Miss Chrissy has, darn it!), and I just was looking around and listing words for absolutely no other reason than to amuse myself.
      There was no ulterior motive behind it; just bored, that's all.
      Funny how I wish for a day off to do nothing, and when I get it, I'm bored out of my skull, lol!
      See y'all around.

    No, I didn't say anything bad at all; I was posting random words, unless shoehorn is somehow bad these days...and I totally wish I had your contents; I'd borrow some of yours, but the drive is too far, lol.
