President George Bush is either a liar, an idiot or a manipulative genius, whichever you prefer. In any case, because of his presidency, there is a high probability that Iran and/or North Korea will be struck with tactical nuclear weapons sometime in the near future.

A document drafted in March by the Pentagon outlined several scenarios, under which the president would be entitled to launch pre-emptive nuclear strikes, marking a significant turn in U.S. nuclear policy.

The sun rose above the Rincon Mountains Sunday morning as the members of the Arizona Wildcat Off-Road club revved up for their annual trek to Chivo Falls.

The 60 club members and guests piled into 24 four-wheel-drive vehicles, ranging from stock pick-up trucks to jeeps.

These trucks are a source of passion for the men and women who make up the core of the group. Their vehicles all began as stock without modifications, but enthusiasts soon begin adding adjustments. [Read article]
