Story of the pictures:
Salee Allawe Iraqi War Victim

Salee Allawe, 9, an Iraqi victim of US air strikes photographed in Greenville, South Carolina where she received medical treatment thanks to Cole Miller and his group No More Victims. They seek to provide medical care to children injured by the US military. She traveled with her father Hussein Allawe and was cared for by local volunteers and treated at the Shriners Hospital. Salle's story is as follows: On November 7, 2006 in Hasswa, Iraq: Salee Allawe, a nine-year-old girl, was playing hopscotch outside her home with her brother, cousin and some friends when US mlitary jets fired three missiles, apparently at passenger vehicles. One missile landed where the children were playing, killing her brother and cousin and taking both of Salee's legs.
here are the pictures:

Nice to see there are people to help with such a tragedy...but my wish is that these people would never have to go thru this in the first place. It just seems like a small consolation.

Quoting thehandsom:

Actually there was one more thing:
It was Jordan (Katie Price)
The caption goes like :
Model Katie Price, AKA Jordan, flashes a nipple at her London book launch today but also shows the horrendous scarring left by many many breast operations. The scar is surrounded by horrible stitch marks making her look more like the bride of frankenstein than a glamour puss..

here is the picture:



She is a vile woman - in looks and personality

Another war coming soon?
Robert Fisk
Hezbollah chief threatens Israel
Speaking to the crowds of mourners via a giant video screen, Nasrallah blamed Israel for his death and said its war against the Jewish state was not over.

"Zionists, if you want this sort of open war, then let the whole world hear, so be it!" he declared.

Thanks for the links handsome....I found this as as sidebar on one of the links:

Trafficking: A very modern slavery

"Even once someone has managed to escape the traffickers' trap, British campaigners say authorities are far more concerned about their status as an illegal immigrant, than as a trafficked person.

Penny, for example - repeatedly imprisoned for not having the right paperwork - is convinced the man who trafficked her is still plying his trade, unmolested by the authorities. "

I guess, that is how the things spiral again

Blast kills senior Gaza militant
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/7247983.stm

A senior militant from the Islamic Jihad movement is among at least seven people killed in an explosion in the Gaza Strip, which injured more than 40.

And some addition to child/ civilan death toll:

The wife and two of Mr Fayed's children were killed in the blast, Palestinian medics said.

==============================
Danish Muhammad cartoon reprinted

Danish newspapers have reprinted one of several caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad which sparked violent protests across the Muslim world in 2005.

They say they wanted to show their commitment to freedom of speech after an alleged plot to kill one of the cartoonists behind the drawings.

The whole cypus issue is still a huge mystry to me.
I sincerely believe Turkey had right to invade in 1974 and this right came from the Treaty of Guarantee.
But somehow Turkey could not persuade anybody..
