Another city in Iraq liberated!

by W2X3XP / November 15, 2004 5:48 AM PST

Only a few more to go. Are we almost done?

Fallujans sought food and water at mosques in the northwestern sector of city, military officials said Monday, while U.S. and Iraqi forces patrolled the streets for any remaining insurgents.

Although the International Red Cross and the Red Crescent have sent food and other aid to Falluja via convoy, the supplies have been blocked from entering the city, a Red Cross spokesman said.

The spokesman said a relief convoy trying to enter Falluja on Monday had been turned back by Iraqi authorities or U.S. Marines, The Associated Press reported.

Let's hope we do a damn sight better at securing it than has been our policy to date. That would be real progress.

Are you kidding, we can't secure our own country!

U.S. borders porous: mag

Despite the constant threat of terrorists invading the homeland, 4,000 undocumented immigrants simply walk across borders daily, a Time magazine investigation has found.

"Every day we deal with this," Jim Elkins, chief of police in the Arizona border town of Bisbee, told Time. "People don't feel safe. ... They come across in droves."

The numbers represent the largest wave of illegal immigrants since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and triple the number of immigrants who arrive here legally every year.

While the majority of illegal immigrants are from Mexico, a growing number are pouring in via Mexico from other countries, including Afghanistan, Egypt and even Iran and Iraq, Time reports.

I agree we can't keep them all out, but we let things go to far in this city before.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
