        The FReeper Canteen Observes ------------------------Memorial Day 2017 ------------------------     HistoryMemorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. There are many stories as to its actual beginnings, with over two dozen cities and towns laying claim to being the birthplace of Memorial Day. There is also evidence that organized women's groups in the South were decorating graves before the end of the Civil War: a hymn published in 1867, "Kneel Where Our Loves are Sleeping" by Nella L. Sweet (see below) carried the dedication "To...

    ATLANTA (AP) -- Democrats hope to enlist military veterans in another type of fight - for majority control of the House. Looking ahead to next year's elections, Democrats are trying to recruit at least two dozen military veterans to challenge Republican incumbents. Democrats say candidates with military on their resumes appeal to independent voters and can help the party break the GOP grip on Washington.

    In today’s wars, American troops face not one enemy, but three: jihadists, infiltrators, and lawyers. Today, our soldiers and Marines are held not just to the laws of warfare, but to unprecedented standards of criminal law, even though they are operating in a combat environment,” said John Maher, a former Army attorney and current reserve lieutenant colonel who specializes in the defense of military accused. Incidents that in the past would have been viewed as collateral damage in the ‘fog of war’ are now being prosecuted as war crimes. Texas defense attorney Colby Vokey, a retired Marine lieutenant colonel, considers...

    Celebrating their success in retaining blue-collar jobs is one way Republicans are winning the votes of working-class Americans. Whew! For once, one of my predictions was correct: Donald Trump had a great visit to Saudi Arabia. It was a great visit for him, it was a great visit for the Saudis and the other Arab Gulf states, and—last but not least—it was a great visit for magical, glowing orbs. I want to spend a little time talking about one of the reasons why the trip went so well. I’ll warn you: This is a somewhat taboo subject for progressive foreign-policy...

    The Korea Herald ^ | May 23, 2017 | Yonhap News Agency
    The Donald Trump administration may push for naval blockades or the imposition of a "no-fly" zone against North Korea should it succeed in developing an intercontinental ballistic missile, an expert here said Tuesday. Trump would view it as a red line for the nuclear-armed communist nation, according to Shin Beom-chul, a professor at the Korea National Diplomatic Academy in Seoul. In case of the North's successful development of ICBMs, "Taking military actions against Pyongyang will be the most appealing option on the table from Trump's perspective," he said in a paper released to media ahead of a security forum to...

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (CBSMiami/AP) — President Donald Trump called the first day of his maiden international trip “tremendous.” The president was largely kept away from reporters during a busy day of meetings and ceremonies in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. But late in the day, he said deals the U.S. government and private sector reached would lead to “tremendous investments” in the United States. He says the deals will also create “jobs, jobs, jobs.” Trump and Saudi King Salman also signed a series of agreements cementing their countries’ military partnerships, including tanks, combat ships, missile defense systems, radar and communications, and cybersecurity...

    NDTV ^ | May 14, 2017 | Krissah Thompson, The Washington Post
    As a new mother, Melania Trump marveled over her son, Barron. "The love. It's unconditional love," she told the Palm Beach Daily News in an interview published on her first Mother's Day. For much of her husband's chaotic presidency so far, Mrs. Trump has stayed out of Washington. Similarly, during Donald Trump's campaign, she remained in the background and did not display deep passion for any particular policy issue. But in the 2006 interview about her baby, she seems in awe. "It's a miracle almost, I could say, that two people can create," she said. "It's very, very special." Her...
