Pearl Harbor Anniversary

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — December 7, 1941, according to President Franklin D. Roosevelt is “a date which will live in infamy.” With today’s anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, we are all reminded that the United States is vulnerable to attacks by foreign entities. On this anniversary, I am also reminded of the 2001 9/11 attacks on America which saw nearly a similar number of lives lost. The United States entered into war after both occasions. Let us not forget lessons learned concerning both attacks; and let us remember the many lives lost in those attacks.

In other news, many people around the world are remembering their personal feelings about Nelson Mandela.

#France Sends Troops to Africa

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — In very interesting historic developments, I am surprised to hear that France is sending troops to Central African Republic where al-Qaida-linked Muslims are attacking Christian villages. These Muslim attacks are threatening genocide in a country which is in the heartland of the continent. This news of Christians being attacked like this, in my opinion, is biblically-prophetic because the scriptures prophesy such Christian persecution in the end times. I plan to follow this story in depth.

Plus, I want to see if media interest in these developments continues.

In other news, I am also surprized at the suspension by CBS of reporter Lara Logan. One of my all-time favorite investigative reporters, Logan was punished for being duped in a fake report about Benghazi. In an unrelated punishment, Alec Baldwin is being fired by MSNBC for his repeated attacks on paparazzi.
