Images as the people of Ukraine try to take Government

By Shaun Gibson, published on Feb 19, 2014

IT STARTED OUT AS A CALM PROTESTAll Images from: http://www.reuters.com/news

When the people of a country have had enough, and I mean "ENOUGH" they say "no more" to their

Government. The people of the Ex-Russian territory Ukraine have had enough. This is a story that is repeating ALL OVER EUROPE and the Middle East just now. Although it can be said "IT WON'T AFFECT ME" Let me tell you a new sense of "Freedom" has hit the people of the World. For Governments full of crooks and liars this is a message. 250 people have died and that is TRAGIC but every life lost is lost to fight... (more)

The Young Sentinel and Mr. Lincoln

By Coach Phatty, published on May 29, 2013

Since this past Monday was Memorial Day, I thought it would be nice to find a story of an unsung hero of a war and share it with you. The story I found for today’s article was written and adapted by Z.A.Mudge and took place in the Civil War. It involved a young Civil War soldier and a President that some of us may know…President Abraham Lincoln.

In the summer of 1862, a young man belonging to a Vermont regiment was found sleeping at his post. He was tried and sentenced to be shot. The day was fixed for the execution, and the young soldier calmly prepared to meet his fate.

Which side to support, Palestine or Israel?

By Rahul, published on Nov 29, 2012

Too much muttering is going on among many Indians about the Palestine Israel conflict. So many photos of dead children, burned houses, crying mothers and many more are circulating on facebook declaring their support for Palestine. Most of it insist or even plead to the Indian government to support Palestine and criticize Israel for its brutal actions. The episode that is taking place now is not at all one sided as most suggest, the Hamas are raining missiles over Israeli towns too but the reason for less or no causalities from the Israeli side is because of its counter missile systems. The... (more)

Graphic Novel Review: DMZ – On the ground

By The Gaming Gentleman, published on Feb 21, 2010

Brian Wood’s vision of a modern civil war in the United States takes shape in the form of DMZ, a DC comics Vertigo title that has received much acclaim. The story is set against a backdrop of division and ideological conflict that sees the USA as we know it split into two factions: The United States, consisting of the original federal government and the Free States, a movement intent on re-instigating the basic ideals of America. When the story starts the two forces have been in conflict for years and the USA is in tatters. The Free States were able to get a foothold in the heartland of... (more)

Literarily Speaking with Historical Fiction Author Dot Ryan

By boomergirl, published on Dec 14, 2009

What can be better than curling up by a cozy fire this holiday season reading a book about the Civil war? I love books about the Civil war – fiction or nonfiction. I used to live in Newport News, Virginia, and there was a park called appropriately The Newport News Park where I remember seeing actual trenches where the Confederate Army hid during enemy attacks. That was the exact moment I not only fell in love with American history, but the Civil war in particular. Dot Ryan’s Corrigans’ Pool is a book you’ll fall in love with if you’re a Civil war buff or a historical fiction lover like me.... (more)
