A video shows unmarked military gunboats patrolling the canals around Slidell, Louisiana.
Apparently, the residents have never seen this in the area before.
Is this part of some kind of drill or is it just normal now in the new Amerika to see armed troops patrolling public canals?
Israel welcomes ‘impressive’ counter-terrorism campaign against insurgency that was sparked by Morsi’s overthrow
Egypt‘s army has announced a full-scale assault on militant areas in the restive northern Sinai desert, in what a senior Israeli official has approvingly called Egypt’s first-ever serious counter-terrorism campaign in the region.
Since July, militant Islamist groups in Sinai, the peninsular sandwiched between Egypt and Israel, have killed dozens of police and army officers in an insurgency sparked by anger at ex-president Mohamed Morsi‘s July overthrow. A Sinai-based cell also claimed responsibility for last week’s failed assassination attempt on Egypt’s interior minister, and the unrest has been used to justify a brutal state-led crackdown on more moderate and largely peaceful Morsi supporters in Cairo.
On Saturday, Egypt’s army said it killed 30 militants in an assault on 12 villages. Locals said the strikes involved six military helicopters and 50 soldiers going from house to house.
