3 more arrests tied to UK soldier's killing

Three more people were arrested Saturday in connection with this week's grisly killing of British soldier Lee Rigby, police said.

The men were being held on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

Police did not detail how they were allegedly tied to the killing nor did they release their identities, saying only that the men - ages 21, 24 and 28 - were arrested by detectives from the Counter Terrorism Command and taken to a south London police station.

    On this brutal slaying of the soldier in Woolich, the 'Independent' reports today that the suspect in 2008 saw his friend sliced to pieces and was stabbed himself by James Lee a bare knuckle fighter belonging to "woolich youth Gang".

    Shakespeare did say, "What is in a Name?"

    But in what other way can we remember you?
    To salute the things that you do
    Let us be given an opportunity to come and pray
    To think and feel the words we cannot say

    Let us honour the ones who have left
    And also honour the ones who serve us.
    They are the ones who have put their life at stake

    Let us always remember those who have fallen to protect our freedoms and those that are currently protecting our freedoms.

    Best branch of the US Armed Forces? A Soldier, a Sailor, an Airman and a Marine got into an argument about which branch of the service was The Best. The arguing became so heated the four servicemen failed to see an oncoming truck as they crossed the street. They were hit by the truck and killed instantly. Soon, the four servicemen found themselves at the Pearly gates of Heaven. There, they met Saint Peter and decided that only he could be the ultimate source of truth and honesty. So, the four servicemen asked him, Saint Peter, which branch of the United States Armed Forces is the best? Saint Peter replied, I cant answer that. However, I will ask God what He thinks the next time I see Him. Meanwhile, thank you for your service on Earth and welcome to Heaven. Sometime later the four servicemen see Saint Peter and remind him of the question they had asked when first entering Heaven and asked Saint Peter if he was able to ask God for the answer to their answer.? Suddenly, a sparkling white dove lands on Saint Peters shoulder. In the doves beak is a note glistening with gold dust. Saint Peter opens the note, trumpets blare, gold dust drifts into the air, harps play crescendos and Saint Peter begins to read the note aloud to the four servicemen: MEMORANDUM FROM THE DESK OF THE ALMIGHTY TO: All Former Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines SUBJECT: Which Military Service Is the Best 1. All branches of the United States Armed Forces are honorable and noble. 2. Each serves America well and with distinction. 3. Serving in the United States military represents a great honor warranting special respect, tribute, and dedication from your fellow man. 4. Always be proud of that. Warm Regards, GOD, USAF, Ret.

      Thank you banasy, mon ami

      This is the least we can all do. Taking a moment of our time to pay tribute to those we know or not, doesn't seem like much, but it can make a difference to those who are currently protecting us. Most of us appreciate what has been done on our behalf. Others, like the one below, obviously love there misery.

    a bunch of army rangers were white water rafting, screaming RANGER! RANGER! RANGER!. God and Jesus were sitting on a tree stump watching them. Jesus looks at God and says dad, what would happen if you took out a quater of their brain. God says lets see, so God takes out a quater of their brain. the army rangers started screaming RANGER! RANGER! RANGER! even louder. Jesus asked God hey dad take out half of their brain and see what happens. So God takes out half of their brain. The rangers start yelling RANGER! RANGER! RANGER! louder and louder. by now Jesus is fustrated and he asks God hey dad take out all of their brain and see what happens. So God takes out all of their brain and instead of yelling RANGER RANGER RANGER. they started singing, from the halls of montezuma to the shores of tripoli

    A soldier is walking down the beach and soon came upon a bottle with a cap on it. The Soldier picks up the bottle, removes the cap, and a genie wafts out of the bottle. The genie tells the soldier, "you let me out of the bottle, so now I'll grant you 3 wishes..." The soldier can't believe what he's hearing, but tells the genie "I think I'd like a top notch Lager..." instantly another bottle appears on the beach, so the soldier picks it up and takes a sip, it's one of the best beers he's ever tasted. When he finishes it, the bottle instantly refills and the soldier drinks it again. Again the bottle fills up. The soldier asks, what is this? The Genie say's " It's a never ending bottle. You can drink from it all your life and it will never go empty." The Genie say's "What would you like next." The Soldier say's " Golly...I'll take two more of these!"
