His comments were made on Tuesday, after France previously pledged it would join any potential US coalition strikes on Syria if Assad uses chemical weapons in Idlib. "There are in all likelihood dozens of French fighters from both Al-Qaeda ...
(Natural News) It’s officially been 17 years (and a few days) since the World Trade Center twin towers were attacked and destroyed on September 11, 2001. And while the world is constantly being told to “never forget” the horrors that took place on that fateful day, there is something that the authorities would rather have us all forget if we somehow happened to notice it, or never learn about at all if we didn’t: the sudden free fall of Building 7 into its own footprint. While video clips of ...

The last time time President Trump launched massive strikes on Syria in April of 2018, Jeffrey Sachs went on MSNBC's Morning Joe just two days before the attack to give the American public a perspective they had never heard aired on a major cable network. Importantly, Sachs is not some random unknown blogger or obscure editorial writer, but a renowned Columbia University professor and career Harvard academic who has won numerous awards and serves as special economic adviser to the U.N. ...
North and South Carolina nuclear power plants are in line for a possible direct hit from Hurricane Florence. According to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), there are twelve operating nuclear power plants in the Carolinas that make electricity by the continuous splitting of uranium atoms (i.e., a nuclear reaction). These plants generally reside near a body of water—a river, lake, estuary or ocean—because they require a constant source of water for cooling purposes. Without cooling water ...
