Ideals Clash In Nigeria.

ng

In Maiduguri, Nigeria troops pounded the compound of an Islamic sect blamed for days of violence in northern Nigeria then attacked it’s mosque, killing at least 100 militants. An AP reporter watched soldiers shoot their way into the mosque and then raked those holed up inside. The reporter later counted 50 bodies inside the building and another 50 in the courtyard. Militants are reported to be seeking to impose Islamic Sharia law throughout the muti-religious country. Nigeria’s 140 million people are nearly evenly divided between Christians, who predominate in the south, and primarily northern-based Muslims.

The war continues in Mexico, as the government and the drug cartels clash in the streets of Juarez, Mexico.  A border town right next to El Paso, Texas. The Mexican government has sent an additional 2,000 troops to Juarez in an attempt to suppress the Cartels who are killing policeman and civilian alike. In this past March, the Mexican government had sent 5,000 troops to Juarez, calming the violence temporarily (and Swine Flu) bringing the total to 7,000 troops. Stay Tuned.

The History Of Memorial Day.

Memorial Day History.

These “Holidays” fascinate me. So I dig a bit, most of the time I find these origins wild, scary, or downright sick.  But this is just a recognition of the dead, a custom found in countless cultures. The fact that the United States, England etc. practice it, makes me skeptical anyway. Beware the Pagan practices as you will make your allegiances unwittingly.
