NASA The question of “where were you on Sept. 11?,” the traditional addendum to the distinctly post-9/11 rallying cry of “never forget,” means something different to the service members and veterans who saw combat in the Global War on Terror than it does for the average civilians. Thousands of military personnel sprang into action on that Tuesday, from racing toward the World Trade Center and Pentagon alongside first responders to securing U.S. air sovereignty from the cockpit of an F-15. In the decade that followed, more than 3 million Americans joined the armed forces. The attacks were an unmistakable call of duty, one that Americans are […]

Trump is the first US president to get Turkey right

by I'm Struggling
Business Insider REUTERS/Umit Bektas Turkey may have grievances against the US, but the US has its own against Turkey.  President Erdogan declared that Washington is waging “economic war” on Turkey, reflecting just how toxic relations between the two countries have become over the last five years. Trump seems to be the first US president to take action, diverting from the passive positions of his predecessors.  Not only were previous approaches unsuccessful, but it also sent the message to Ankara that it was so valuable an ally that there would be no consequences for its actions. Last Friday, Turkish President Recep […]

One of the rarest birds in the western hemisphere, the Bahama Nuthatch, has been rediscovered by research teams searching the island of Grand Bahama. The finding is particularly significant because the species had been feared extinct following the catastrophic damage caused by Hurricane Matthew in 2016, and had not been found in subsequent searches. But it is feared that there could only be two left — placing the species on the verge of extinction and certainly among the world’s most critically endangered birds.

by I'm Struggling
“Iron Man” Superhero movies are known for their blockbuster, money-making appeal, but they can also produce some stellar performances.

The best superhero movie performances take what’s on the comic book page and add another layer to it on the screen. We looked at the […]

by I'm Struggling
REUTERS/Reinhard Krause Trump chided NATO members for failing to reach a target of spending 2% of national income on defense.  Trump said he would prefer a goal of 4%, similar to US levels. The proposed increase would represent a massive upheaval of budgetary priorities in Europe where Germany and many others have pledged only to reach 2% by 2024 or later. BRUSSELS (Reuters) – NATO leaders will try on Thursday to move beyond US President Donald Trump’s demands for higher defense spending, and focus on ending the long war in Afghanistan, in the second day of a summit in Brussels […]

by I'm Struggling
We’d hoped the whole Fast & Furious feud had quietly been pulled over behind the scenes, but apparently it’s still sitting in idle. Last week Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson responded to a question about “that whole thing” on Watch What Happens Live, proving he was anything but affected.
