I know the name Kursk from ww2 tank battle but they are easy enough to find on Google Earth, close to the border with Ukraine.

Kursk was the approximate area of the battleground, whereas it actually occurred over about a week, but in a very wide large area.  ;)

Battle of Kursk:[nb 7]

    203,000[13]-500,000[14] casualties
    760[15]-1,612[16] tanks and assault guns
 
   
Battle of Kursk

The eastern front at the time of Operation Citadel. Orange areas show the destruction of an earlier Soviet breakthrough that ended with the Kharkov offensive operation. Green areas show German advances on Kursk.

The Battle of Kursk was a World War II engagement between German and Soviet forces on the Eastern Front near the city of Kursk, (450 kilometers / 280 miles south of Moscow) in the Soviet Union in July and August 1943. It was both the largest series of armored clashes, including the Battle of Prokhorovka, and the costliest single day of aerial warfare in history. The battle was the final strategic offensive the Germans were able to mount in the east, and the decisive Soviet victory gave the Red Army the strategic initiative for the rest of the war.

Pennsylvania Gun At Center of Terrorist Threat

One more reason for armed guards!

Yes, this is genuinely serious, based on such intelligence the next generation of terrorists will be armed with weapons so dangerous that they can blow bubbles. For such an audacious abuse of national security the perpetrator should have to face a firing squad of soap bubble guns. Now can you imagine the dangerous nature of Slobodan Bin Gadaffi Junior being armed with a high powered soap bubble gun to the refrains of "I'm forever blowing bubbles" that national security will be seriously compromised by the fact that everyone who heard the thread died laughing.  :P

America - are there too many retarded lawsuits ?
« Reply #338 on: January 24, 2013, 02:11:01 PM »

<A Pennsylvania elementary school allegedly suspended a 5-year-old girl for making a “terrorist threat” <after the child told a friend that she was going to shoot her with a pink Hello Kitty bubble gun.

<The unidentified kindergartener was initially suspended for 10 days following the Jan. 10 incident at Mount <Carmel Area Elementary School in Northumberland County, PennLive.com reported.

“This little girl is the
< least terroristic person in Pennsylvania,” Robin Ficker, a lawyer for the girl’s family, told the website.



First it says "allegedly" then it says she was suspended.

Which is it ?  :dazzled:

I am sure there is some truth in this story.


Reminds of a favorite toy of mine when I was young.

It was a plastic rocket that you put water in it and pumped it full of air.

I think it went about 50 ft. high.

About 20 years later I asked a toy store manager if they carried the water rocket.

He said, "No, someone sued the manufacturer and so they stopped making it."

When I worked at Macy's I was told that about 15% of the price of clothing is attributable to loss of profit due to lawsuits.

What happened to personal responsibility ?

in the first sentance, they are reporting directly
in the second one, they are quoting someone else

the word "allegedly" is used to cover their asses, legally, in the event that it turns out to be incorrect
when they quote someone else, that isn't necessary, as they are reporting what someone else said

The term “allegedly” applies to any criminal incidence, in this case “terrorist threat”, in which guilt is not explicitly been established by a court of law. It's basically a legal technicality.

Seeing what some reporters report on, I don't think they have much to worry about in terms of being successfully sued.

I have some experience with reporters, and some of them have a "conscious" that is "seared."
I am trying to keep this clean.  ;)

Citizens should have a weapons. If they don't have it - will be a dictatorship in the country (such as in Russia or Ukraine).
USA is great.
Sorry for the bad English
