Iraqi "Rose"

by James Denison / November 8, 2009 10:24 PM PST

Two US Marines are listening to the radio in Iraq.

"American soldiers," coos a soft female voice, "Your so-called national
Leaders have lied to you. You are needlessly risking your lives to wage
A useless, unjust, illegal, and unwinnable war. Now is the time to
return home to your loved ones, while you are still alive. If you
foolishly insist on remaining where you are not wanted, the brave
resistance fighters will have no choice but to kill you and add your
name to the long ever-increasing casualty list of this insane war. So
why risk never seeing your loved ones again for a so-called president
who has repeatedly lied and deceived you at every opportunity? Why
should you be sacrificed so that US corporations can enjoy fatter
profits? The only wise thing to do is return home now, while you are
still drawing breath, before you return zippered into a bodybag."

"What's this?" sneers one Marine. "An Islamo-terrorist version of Tokyo

"No," answers the other. "It's just CNN!"

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?
