On September 11th 2001, tragedy struck. During President George W. Bush’s administration the worst bombing in history took place that will not be forgotten a decade later! It was with immense horror and shock, persons from every nation world wide watched as two aircrafts entered the World Trade Centers in New York and also damaged the pentagon. Thus resulting in the US government waging war against “TERROR.”

The ghoulish 9/11 terrorist attacks left a mixture of emotions world wide including fear, disbelief, anger, resentment towards muslims, shock, depression, and I shall not forget to mention these attacks literally shattered the high regard in which the U.S. regarded their security system!

Ever since it has been an on going battle, between the US and the Middle East some ten(10) years later. Not a dollar has been spared in tracking down and executing Osama Bin Laden, the man behind this catastrophe. Bushed asked for;

  • An astounding $20.8 billion dollars to launch the war on Afghanistan

  • $13 billion for enhanced security for military bases. Shortly after the Taliban government was replaced with Hamid Karzai.

In October 2002, he received Congressional approval for the Iraq War. In November 2002, Congress passed the Homeland Security Act establishing a stand-alone with Cabinet-level departments in an attempt to unify 22 agencies that handled domestic security. A total of $33.8 billion was spent that year alone.

Shortly after Afghanistan was attacked. A military air strike was released above, This shattered their defense! Soldiers stormed Afghanistan and began taking prisoners. Afghanistan posed no major problem for the U.S. The Afghan army crumbled and some ten(10) years later, their commander and chief Osama Bin Laden was tracked down and eliminated.

One year later, the U.S. launched the War in Iraq on March 19 with “Shock and Awe,” costing $53 billion. The Hussein regime toppled in April. The U.S. spent $14.7 billion, even while it announced the War in Afghanistan was over, and NATO took over as a peacekeeping mission. Additional defense security spending was $13.5 billion. Homeland Security officially opened its doors in March.  A total of $81.2 billion was spent on that endeavor. Iraq was then invaded and the first strike was delivered by the U.S who, released a military air strike over Iraq. A total of 12,125 civilians and soldiers were killed! That left a massive dent in their plans for attack!

In 2004 the War in Iraq escalated to control insurgents, costing $75.9 billion.  Afghanistan created a Constitution, while Bin Laden threatened another terrorist attack. The U.S. spent $14.5 billion on Afghanistan and $3.7 billion on enhanced security. A total of $94.1 billion was spent. An additional  $20.1 billion was spent in 2005, to protect Afghans from Taliban attacks for their first free election. Spending in Iraq increased to $85.5 billion, while extra security spending dropped to $2.1 billion. This resulted in a total of $107.6 billion spent that year. A total of 11,654 iraq civilians were killed!

In 2006  funding for the War in Iraq escalated to $101.6 billion,  funding for The War in Afghanistan dropped slightly to $19 billion, and security measures to $800 million. A total of $920.6 billion was spent. That’s on top of $474.2 billion spent for the Department of Defense. A total of  29,400 civilians were killed!

The following year Bush announced a “surge” of 20,000 additional U.S. troops to help transition power to Iraq leaders, boosting Iraq spending to a record $131.2 billion. The Afghan War spending nearly doubled, to $39.2 billion. A total of $170.9 billion PLUS $671.6 billion for the DoD base budget was spent. That year a total of 25,968 civilians were killed!

 In 2008 violence escalates in Afghanistan, boosting costs to $43.5 billion. Iraq costs rose to a new record, $142.1 billion. A total of $185.7 billion PLUS $549.6 billion for DoD.  In order to help de-escalate the violent uprising, Obama sends 17,000 more troops to Afghanistan in April, promising to send another 30,000 in December. This boosts spending to $59.5 billion, while costs for fell for the first time to $95.5 billion. A total of $155.1 billion. That’s in addition to $513 billion for the DoD base budget. A total of 10,237 civilians were killed!

During the Bush administration (2001-2009) a total of $850 billion was spent on the War on Terror and a total of 123,976 civilians killed. At the same time, the DoD base budget also grew. The Bush Administration did not separate out addition spending to support defense, such as Veterans Administration costs to care for returning servicemen or expanded Homeland Security expenses.

The following year elections changed the course of history forever! In 2010 the Bush administration crumbled and a new leader was chosen. This leader was Barack Obama and he is to lead the U.S to victory. Never before had such a huge responsibility been put on the shoulders of a light skinned/blackman! He did not backdown from this new responsibility, instead he rose up and took on the challenge! No longer was the U.S bound by white supremacy. Now the power belonged to a light skin man! In his first year Obama spent $850 billion on defense. This included $530.1 billion for the DoD base budget, and $152.7 billion to fund other departments, such as Homeland Security and the Veterans Administration. He doubled the amount for the Overseas Contingency Operations, to $167.3 billion, to fund an orderly wind-down to end the War in Iraq.

In 2011 the War in Iraq finally ended! Obama increased spending to $838 billion. It included $159.4 billion in contingency funds to beef up initiatives in Afghanistan and Pakistan. He announces he will withdraw 10,000 troops at the end of the calendar year. A total of 4,153 civilians were killed!

Obama further increased security spending to $909 billion. This included $530.4 billion for the DoD base and $126.5 billion in OCO for the War in Afghanistan.  Spending by other departments to support defense was $153.6 billion. Homeland Security was $39.9 billion and the Veterans Administration was $58.7 billion.  He announced the withdrawal of another 20,000 troops in the summer, leaving left 70,000 troops remaining.  (Source: NYT, Afghanistan War Timeline, June 22, 2011) 

Defense spending dropped to $780.7 billion. This includes the DoD base at $525.4 billion and OCO at $96.7 billion. The costs from other departments that support defense totals $158.6 billion, plus Homeland Security ($39.5 billion) and Veterans Affairs ($61 billion).

The new cost of the Military budget by this time is $745.2 billion. The DoD base budget was $525.6 billion. The OCO was budgeted at $92.3 billion, although that might change once the President announces when the U.S. will pull out of Afghanistan sometime during the year. Since the War is ending, the costs of other departments’ defense programs dropped to $25.4 billion. Homeland Security costs will stay the same, at $37.4 billion, while Veterans Administration ($63.5 billion) will rise. 

Contingency funds for operations in Afghanistan and Iraq from 2010 – 2014 was $642.2 billion, three-fourths as much as Bush spent on the “War on Terror” initiative in eight years. President Obama campaigned on defense reduction, and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for pulling troops out of Iraq. However, his military-related spending made him look like a hawk.

All in all when you add it up the total spent on Overseas Contingency Operations to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan was $1.492 trillion. Expensive, I know. No one ever said war was cheap. Way more was spent on war than educating the American Citizens. The cost of freedom certainly isn’t cheap! The War in Iraq lasted longer than the Vietnam War. More important,  4,488 U.S. soldiers were killed and 32,226 were wounded. More than $700 billion was spent on the Iraq War alone. (Source: ABC News, Final U.S. Troops Leave Iraq, March 19, 2013) but was it worth it? What does the U.S. have to show for their decade of fighting? Some of you may be asking.

Well the tracking down and execution of Osama Bin Laden off-course was a major success! He was the main one behind the planning and funding of the 9/11 bombings, so there was no question that there was going to be some retaliation from the U.S. The question was not if they were going to but when and  how it would be carried out as well as what the impact on ordinary Afghans would be. The U.S. knew they had to take revenge and that’s just what they set out to do inevitably. The U.S. Army took out an estimated 400,000 to 900,000 civilians in Iraq! Compared to the 3,000 dead bodies that resulted from the bombings, that’s another major success. Every year since 2003, onwards the U.S. army has taken out a total of 29,400 civilians, Thats way more bodies dropped than on 9/11 . The Iraq people will be feeling this blow for years to come.

Persons may be of the opinion that this war was a burden on the economy, it has affected the way we travel, our safety has been compromised, this ordeal has really taken a toll on persons and their belief and trust in security in airports in the United States. Many persons just don’t feel safe anymore! They don’t trust that they metal detectors and dogs can do the job any more in protecting their lives, so they opt out of traveling as much no and find other means of traveling/ getting around. They may also express that this war has brought about the loss of jobs, has cost the government trillions of dollars, loss of many lives and soldiers, hatred and a rise in those who think most muslims are terrorists, the decline in U.S global power, but I disagree. Men and women were sent to fight for our security and freedom for 10 plus years now and we must honor and remember them, for they did what most of you can only dream of doing. Killed more persons than you can kill in any of the games you play. They deserve recognition and special place in your heart! Now we have our peace of mind back! Now you can sleep well at night knowing that you are safe, and no terrorists shall come bomb you any given night! That’s what this war has done!

This war has opened the eyes of many world wide and shown what the U.S. are really capable of. It is not yet possible to know who is actually winning the war on terror, but from all the information stated above it is safe to say the U.S is dominating this one! They are the better equipped one. Needless to say Iraq and the taliban is in turmoil, as a result of harboring terrorists until the U.S sees fit to cease fire!

Let us all have a moment of silence for those who died for our security and freedom, those U.S soldiers who lost their lives in the war and those civilians who lost their lives in iraq. It was not in vein. They shall not be forgotten a decade later. Their memory still lingers on. It wasn’t easy, but some 10 years later, life as we know it can continue and prosper. Persons can now work comfortably now without the fear of being bombed, children can now come out to play on a saturday afternoon in the local parks and designated playing areas, although many lives were lost, this just created an opening for someone else to get a job, persons still don’t feel safe traveling like before, but persons do get around, confidence in the U.S judicial system has plummeted significantly, trust in one another has declined as well, persons no longer trust staying out doors for long periods of time anymore, persons no longer feel safe when alone anymore, persons rarely even go out at nights anymore as a result of the war. A decade later nothing is the same! Those terrorists have taken the one thing we held dear to us, our sense of security and safety. They have stripped us of it, and now many things we once knew have changed!

It’s true some things have not changed, but in many regards, life as we know it has changed, and they way we perceive things has been affected drastically. Our safety even has been compromised, and it’s up to us to fix it! We can fix it, if we come together and decide to solve the problem instead of being one, then I know we can allow ourselves to feel safe again! Don’t you worry! Strong men and women out there are working on fixing things as we speak! Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, at least 56 Islamist-inspired terrorist plots against the United States have been foiled thanks to domestic and international cooperation. The core of al-Qaeda has been flushed from Afghanistan and hounded in Pakistan; and a number of affiliated groups across Southeast Asia, in part through U.S. counterterrorism assistance and cooperation, have been weakened!

Rest assured justice will prevail!

Dangerous inmate back in custody!

yannicktheodore.com header(NEWS) copia googleplus 13pinterest 21facebook 7twitter 16                    shop-online-button-300x279  Contact-me-button-3  HomeButton     eliahs-knudsen-kent-faces-multiple-charges

Police in Halifax have arrested a dangerous inmate who was mistakenly released from prison on Friday!

Early Friday Eliahs Knudsen Kent was allowed to mistakenly walk away from the Nova Scotia Correctional Facility. He was scheduled to appear in court next week on a long list of charges. Those charges stemmed from a break-in at a Dartmouth home in September. Police say a homeowner awoke to find two male intruders attempting to steal guns from his cabinet. The home owner tried to stop the two men, but unfortunately failed to apprehend the intruders, and instead was struck in the head numerous times with the bottom end of one of his own rifles. Kent was later charged with attempted murder, home invasion, robbery and using a firearm in the commission of an offense.

Late Saturday at about 2 pm Kent was taken into custody by officers, Halifax police said in a statement released later that day!

According to Sgt. Reid McCoombs, Kent was found at an unknown address in the SpryField area of Halifax. After a short foot chase he was apprehended by police.

Police say they were just doing their routine checks of all their leads, checking a variety of addresses, and this was just another one on the list. Luckily it was the right one, McCoombs told reporters on Saturday!

Now Kent faces an additional charge of escaping lawful custody!

This is not the first mistaken release seen in Novia Scotia. Eight prisoners were accidentally released between 2007 and 2010. There have also been an additional three releases in that same provence.

Prison officials are investigating the circumstances surrounding this latest mistaken release!

Summer Nights

stories googleplus 13pinterest 21facebook 7twitter 16                    shop-online-button-300x279  Contact-me-button-3  HomeButton   Summer nights are always full of so many awesome surprises. The nights are just never the same. The possibilities of fun are endless, how could you possibly not say the same? There’ s a variety of choices to select from, to ensure that your nights you are bound to enjoy! There’s the cinema, restaurants or the strip clubs you would simply love. Also there’s clubbing, bar hopping and dancing just some tips for simple romancing! Some might even feel to travel, from ottawa to montreal, it’s really not a hassle. Got your gas money, it’s a must, it’s part of the travel package, and you could be there in a flash, no rush, no fuss, partying non- stop, trust me! If you are looking for fun a trip to montreal is just what you want! It is sum times questioned off and on is Ottawa really the place, to make good friends? I answer this with great haste! Our streets are filled with sweet, great people, who fancy nothing more than to meet and greet, new people! They love to party, and have a good time, so always try to keep that in mind! With all that said, hope you catch my drift, in other words, Ottawa is the best!

The night air is so crisp and cool, and always gently wafting in just at the right time! High pitched shrills, and excited yells could be heard from miles away, as many teenagers and adults packed the streets downtown and go around on their merry way, along with a number of party goers of every shape, bar hoppers, from all over, exotic dancers, who slip in and out the shadows of the night unnoticed by those with unfamiliar eyes, couples of all sorts, even persons on bikes will zoom by periodically through traffic, in a rush to get home. Girls, by the masses, on every street, in search of their favorite, bar/ club, or in search of a guy to show them the time of their life! This inevitable can only be done in Ottawa! It was all very spectacular!  The streets were well lit miles around, with amazing signs and decorations of various colors and sizes! Making for perfect photogenic scenery!
Summer nights in Ottawa are the best! Everyone comes out with the same goal, to have an awesome time, and get hardcore wasted!. With that in mind you go out there and party till you can’t walk! Everyone is so friendly, an will go out of their way to make sure you are happy! Some party with such, spirit and passion. That is exactly what I intended to do! This night was no exception! For you see when I party, I try to party in three parts, to ensure maximum fun, excitement and satisfaction! Done it so for as long as I can remember! I first start with a pre party drink up, I usually call the pre-drink party! The pre – drink party consists of favored members of your team you will be partying with later that night, partying and drinking in much the same way as in the club/bar but in a private setting! Usually your residence or someone else’s. Then we head out, pumped and ready to have the time of our life! Then after the party, we make our way to an after party! Yeah I know, you party, after you just partied! Amazing concept! Even more amazing when tried! Trust me! The after party can be the final deciding factor on how good or bad a night on the town turns out. Make the after party a good one!
I do this occasionally, take time off from work, in order to spend some well earned time out with old and new friends. This time I was in desperate need of a break! For you see Friday night activities were more than just a celebration to satisfy personal needs, but to celebrate the rising in sales at work! What a glorious occasion, for me! I needed to celebrate this, plus as luck would have it, I was surprised with a new neighbor! As fate would have it I am not one to grudge or hate on any one before getting to know them, so I calmly introduced myself! We exchanged a couple hearty laughs, got formally introduced, found out they were canadian chefs! How cool is that! I mean think of the party possibilities! Surprisingly enough we hit it off quite well! Let me just say,
Barbeque invites would be sent out soon!
 An instant green light flashed in my head! Those new neighbors could be just the think i require for my exquisite parties, and VIP celebrations! I immediately suggested a night on the town! It was eagerly accepted! We had an amazing pre – drink party, and head out in search of a night of fun!
On arrival we were greeted with two pitchers of the finest beer imaginable! What a treat! My team was very large that night, so we had to find the biggest  table, to accommodate all of us, I’m telling you! Me and my team packed the bar and filled it with shouts of victory and mere excitement. We sauntered through the bar, like we owned the place. Buying pitcher after pitcher, periodically for hours and hours sealed the deal! Plus I was undefeated at every game played! My team was turnt up that night. With sales up, don’t see why not? Our table was laden with drinks and packed with so many friends 30 minutes later, that I was impressed! The drinks kept coming, jokes kept increasing, the songs were great, let’s just say all the ingredients to make for a successful happy first night out! I’m telling you! I wound up meeting an incredible thirty(30) people, and getting twenty-two(22) digits that night. I guess they were intrigued with one of my many qualities displayed that night! I was getting it in as they say! It was awesome! Later on that night we marched down to Pub 101, another bar, where the party really began! This bar had three levels, and let me tell you, on each level had some of the finest women you have ever seen, doing jello shots taken off each others boobs! Let me just tell you, never before have I seen jello shots taken so beautifully! I was interested the moment we entered the room. The girls were hot, breasts were perfect, jello shots on them, even more perfect! Whining after jello shots, nothing more perfect than that! The girls were even hotter than at La Maison. We instantly decided to stay!
I met an astounding forty-five(45) persons there that night! All with a different interesting story to tell. If time only permitted me to get to know all of them, I would have in a flash. They were all so beautiful I must say! But time was against us that night. It was great getting to meet so many persons from all over. End up turning it up with the dance moves on the dance floor! Awesome stuff! More drinks kept magically appearing before my eyes, and I simply kept chugging them down like there was no tomorrow! Got a thirty-three(33) digits in that bar alone! What a night!
All in all it was an awesome night. Made lots of new friends! Met 75 amazing persons, got fifty-five(55) digits and had the time of my life! Ottawa is the place for socializing and meeting friends for sure! After all it is the capital of Canada!

Have you ever, gone out with someone and for some reason things did NOT go according to plan?  and for the life of you , you can’t figure out why? Not sure how to behave?  Not sure what women like? Need some expert help? This is the article for you. I shall be your dating guide/ guru, and provide you with tips needed to ensure a successful date! All you have to do now is study and follow my tips below, and you will be enjoying your dating life more.

be prepared copia

Be Prepared

It is a known fact that the first date is the most important. The first date can determine the outcome of all the others after. The first date is an excellent opportunity to show your date what you are made of and how different you are to the others. Don’t forget the main objective of a date is to show your date why you are a better choice to go out with in the future than someone else. Trust me first impressions count for a lot. On a first date personal hygiene and grooming is a must! In anticipation of any date, try going for a hair cut, investing in a new outfit, checking that your teeth and nails are presentable!

wedding_dance_preparation copia

Be Confident

A first date is always a nerve racking event, but there’s nothing more attractive than a bit of self-confidence.  When it comes to conversation, stay in your comfort zone by coming up with a few topics that you can talk about easily so you’re not out of your depth too early. But it’s a delicate balance. No one wants to be the guy who brags on about his comic book collection all night, or what a pro he is on the bench press. That’s a big no. If in doubt, ask your date about themselves and go from there. That’s always the safe way to go.

manners

Manners Maketh Man & Woman

One very important tip when on a date is, NEVER FORGET YOUR MANNERS! A little etiquette goes a long way. If she looks nice, tell her that! Maybe open the door as she walks through, or offer your arm as she steps down from the curb – but play it cool and don’t go too overboard! Also try remember their most prominent feature. Trust me its useful! Not to forget to say please and thank you at opportune moments. When you’re comfortable, maybe test the waters by leaning in a little closer as she speaks – if she backs away, well, it’s probably not going well.

casual

Keep It Casual

First dates, don’t have to be a burden, or stress. Always remember to try and keep it casual, or keep it real. Not sure about your date? Try taking the person somewhere you are comfortable. it’s pretty obvious, your agenda, if you’ve chosen somewhere that’s just around the corner from your pad. Try for somewhere that’s convenient for both of you to get to. One of your favorite bars is a good choice. Drinks are fine for a first date, just don’t over do it. 
It’s perfectly ok to keep first or second dates to weeknights, but anything after the third outing together should be for the weekend. Otherwise, they’re going to wonder what you’re doing that’s so much more interesting than them. Or, worse, who.

Don’t Be Affraid To Ask For Advice

If you’re a little clueless or just want to make sure you’re on the right track, don’t be afraid to ask your friends for a few pointers. See what they think of the outfit you’re planning to wear, or the venue you want to take your date to. Getting advice is not a bad thing. Everyone needs help sometimes. That could save you being turned down, or things not going according to plan.

Eyes On Your Date

Remember, when you’re on a date with someone, they should the centre of attention. Ask them about themselves and pay attention to their answers. And don’t try to get a sneaky look at your watch or phone – and that blonde sitting at the bar who you just checked out? Yep, they saw that, too.

stock-footage-close-up-of-hands-counting-australian-bills

Offer To Pay

If it’s a first date, it won’t do you any harm to pay – or at least offer. Arguing about who should pick up the bill is not a good look and it’s hardly going to give the best first impression. Then again, it’s perfectly fine to level the score a bit if you end up seeing each other regularly.

As I Look Outside My Window

As I look outside my window,

Can’t help but feel safe.

As I look outside my window,

Can’t help but

feel great,

As I look outside my window,

I imagine things at no cost!

As I look outside my window!

Can’t help but feel lost,

As I look outside my window,

I see everything is not as I thought,

As I look outside my window,

I feel a call to rise,

As I look

outside

my

window,

I feel to rise and be

the best that I can be, you see!

As I look outside my window,

I know there are

greater things

for me to

see,

As i look outside my window,

Can’t help but reminisce on

my life’s achievements,

with glee.

As I look outside my window,

I feel a longing to be greater,

to work harder!

As I look outside my window,

I often wonder

what’s out there for me?

Money?

Gold?

Diamonds?

Girls?

Must be!

As I look outside my window,

I feel at ease!

For I know I can do as I please!

I can do all things through christ who strengthens me!

For once I’m truly pleased!

As I look outside my window,

I am acknowledged by the nodding of the trees!

As I look outside my window,

I remember all that was

taught!

As I look outside my window,

I fear not,

As I look outside my window,

The future is always a first thought!

As I look outside my window,

I dream about not

being stopped!

As I look outside my window,

money is always my final though!

Don’t get lost!
