Punk thugs always believe they're big and bad, until they challenge someone who's not afraid to fight back and teaches them harsh lessons. One amateur career criminal in training may be headed for early retirement now that he's received an overdose of karma for a crime he attempted to commit. The punishment he suffered was so bad, news outlets are now trying to determine whether he should be considered a suspect or a victim.

The Obama administration is "on the verge of taking action" against ISIS in Libya, Sen. Bob Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told Politico.The U.S. insists it does not plan to deploy ground troops to the oil-rich North African country, but Obama said the same thing about Iraq and Syria, and there are now 3,700 American soldiers in the former and scores of special operations forces in the latter.After dropping 23,144 bombs on six countries in 2015, Obama now "on verge of" launching another bombing campaign in Libya

Revolutionary discovery: Scientists find gravitational waves Einstein predicted - USA TODAY
Scientists at Washington's National Science Foundation and Moscow State University have confirmed the discovery of Albert Einstein's gravitational waves. The breakthrough, possibly the biggest in physics in a century, could be the key to new understanding of the universe. Recent rumors of the success in detecting gravitational waves, or as some scientists put it "very weak space-time wiggles which propagate at the speed of light" were officially confirmed Thursday.
These ripples in the fabric of space-time are one of the most important variables in Einstein's theory of relativity and it took astronomers decades to detect them, although they were pretty sure that gravitational waves existed.

Steelworkers escaped with their lives after a huge explosion ripped through Britain's biggest steelworks plant this morning.
The massive blast - believed to have been caused by a lightning strike - rocked the Tata steelworks in Port Talbot, South Wales, shortly after a shift change at 8am.
Flames could be seen for miles around - and parts of the plant were evacuated as emergency services rushed to the scene.
Onlooker Mike O'Neill said: 'My car shook with the explosion as I drove past. I can see massive 100ft flames.
'There was also a huge plume of black smoke.'

's sources report Thursday that forces from the Kurdish YPG militia, backed by Russian commandos, captured the Minnigh air base and an adjacent town in northern Syria from rebel groups allied with Islamic State. It marked the first time in the Syrian war that Kurdish troops had attacked the rebels in a joint operation with the Russians. The town and the base located north of the city of Aleppo, and just a few kilometers from the Turkish border, are strategically important due to their proximity to the town of A'zaz that controls the main northern route leading to the besieged city. 's sources added that the capture of the air base and the roads leading to it cut off the last remaining route for the rebels in Aleppo to receive ammunition, food, medicine and other supplies from the air.Kurdish troops, with Russian special forces, capture key air base in N.

DEBKAfile: The US opposes Russia's proposal for a cease-fire in Syria starting March 1, namely in three weeks, which it made on Tuesday night. Washington is demanding an immediate cease-fire but Moscow does not agree.Our sources report that US Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met in Munich on Thursday morning in an effort to reach a compromise on the date of the cease-fire. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir is participating in the meeting as representative of the Syrian rebel groups supported by Riyadh. Obama administration officials had a number of reservations about the Russian proposal after they received it, according to unconfirmed Western reports.

Washington foreign policies these days are dominated by a bizarre kind of political sado-masochism, not unlike the argument given by the CIA that torture such as waterboarding is a successful, legitimate way to extract invaluable intelligence from an enemy combatant. Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo come to mind. The war-makers like CIA head honcho John Brennan or Victoria Nuland at the State Department, or neocon Ash (as in ashes of war) Carter at the Pentagon seem to be convinced that to be a great nation, first you must be "hard cop," beat the daylights out of your target person or nation. You sanction them to the point of breaking economically. Then you flip sides and go "soft cop." Their silly CIA and military torture handbooks tell them this works every time. Only problem, it doesn't. This is definitely true with several nations today who resist the bully hard cop-soft cop games of Washington. What Iran is doing in terms of pricing its oil export sales is an example.
In summer of 2015 the United States agreed to a lifting of sanctions on Iran, on certain conditions, allegedly tied to Iranian guarantees to IAEA international monitoring of its nuclear reactor program.
The most brutal of sanctions were devised by the US Treasury's aggressive Office of Financial Terrorism in January 2012. They were then imposed by the European Union under immense Washington pressure. Among other measures they imposed unprecedented worldwide cessation of all Iranian banks' access to the SWIFT interbank payments system for sales of its oil or trade on world markets.
SWIFT, Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, clears most world interbank financial transactions. It is based in Belgium and owned by private banks, not by the EU. It was SWIFT's first expulsion of any institution in its 39 year history. The SWIFT expulsion was designed by David Cohen, US Undersecretary of Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, together with Mark Dubowitz, a sanctions specialist in Washington. It was the financial equivalent of Washington deciding to use a thermonuclear weapon.
As well, the EU agreed to an oil embargo on Iran and to freezing the assets of Iran's central bank abroad. The Iranian currency rapidly collapsed some 80% to the dollar. Iranian inflation, especially for vital wheat imports, exploded and oil exports to major customers including the EU, China, Japan, South Korea and India were cut in half.

Tehran has released provocative new photographs and video of the US sailors who were detained in the Persian Gulf hours before President Obama's State of the Union Address last month, after they strayed into Iranian waters.

People across the Kingwood area said they've been seeing dirty water in their sinks and bathtubs for weeks, and in some cases months.
"It looked like a chocolate water fountain," Elizabeth Bustillo, a Kingwood resident who contacted KPRC 2 to look into the problem, said. "I have families in other countries that have cleaner water than we do."
Bustillo has called North Kingwood Forest her home for the last two years, but on Monday she noticed her water's brown color. She said all three of her kids who use the water became sick.
"They were sick last week. It was a mysterious stomach virus. It was the worst that they've ever had," Bustillo said.
Valerie Johnson knows exactly what Bustillo is talking about. She said she doesn't drink the water but she feeds it to her animals.

A Red Crescent convoy on a rescue mission to the Syrian town of Madaya northwest of Damascus came under heavy shelling, according to a spokesperson for the International Committee of the Red Cross.
The vehicles were to deliver humanitarian aid to the western town of Madaya and evacuate four people in serious condition on an overnight mission that began Wednesday evening, Rafiulla Qureshi, a spokesperson for ICRC in Damascus, told RT.
Despite the concentrated fire, the coordinators and two doctors managed to survive the attack. The mission had to be put on hold for several hours, but the four people were eventually rescued.
"Yesterday's incident could have been lethal, we were lucky. It was a close call, but nobody was injured," Qureshi said.
Cars bearing the Red Cross or Red Crescent symbols should not be targeted under any circumstances, he stressed.

Hillary Clinton isn't having a very good time on the campaign trail recently, as she vies for the Oval Office. It seems her once cult-like supporters are dropping like flies, and a new mentality is taking over the Democratic voters. This was demonstrated at a recent Hillary event, but almost everyone missed it — until it was pointed out by social media users. While some call it something "wrong" in the crowd, it's more accurately described as a huge embarrassment.
