Syrian jets fire into Lebanon, reports say

Two Syrian jets fired three rockets that hit empty buildings near the Lebanese town of Arsal near the Syrian border Monday, a local source said. There were no injuries, according to the source.

Also, Lebanese state-run news agency NNA reported that Syrian warplanes attacked sites in northern Lebanon.

This latest violence comes as the Syrian conflict enters its third year. The unrest started in March 2011 when President Bashar al-Assad's government launched a fierce crackdown on protesters. The discontent evolved into a full-blown civil war that has left more than 70,000 dead and more than 1 million refugees.

    Don't worry my friend, your prayers are being answered. Efforts have been initiated in that direction by our worthy lawmakers the like of Lindsay Graham. Plenty up on the Hill who crave Armageddon.

    A woman was visiting her blonde friend who had acquired
    two new dogs, and asked her what their names were.

    The blonde responded by saying that one was named Rolex
    and one was named Timex.

    "Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that?" said her

    "Hellooooo," answered the blonde, "they're watch dogs!"
