"While bombings and shootings elsewhere in Afghanistan receive relatively little attention, attacks in the capital score propaganda points for the insurgents by throwing doubt on the government's ability to provide security even the seat of its power. The attacks also aim to undermine coalition claims of progress ahead of the planned withdrawal of foreign troops by the end of 2014."
This is describing Propaganda because the government is influencing the teenagers to rebel. http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/09/08/suicide-bombing-kills-at-least-6-in-central-kabul/ Crossing Religious Lines in an Israeli Hospital "There are no empty beds this day in the recovery room at the Hadassah-Ein Kerem hospital. Doctors and nurses hover over patients. Manar Igbarya, 25, is giving a woman an injection and inspecting a bandage on her right leg. The Orthodox patient is absorbed in talking to her visiting husband. Everyone is chatting in Hebrew; nothing in this scene seems unusual, except that Ms. Igbarya is a Palestinian Muslim.
This expresses dehumanized state because these patients don't want her as her doctor because of her religion. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/11/world/middleeast/11iht-letter11.html?_r=1 •http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/09/10/us-formally-hands-over-bagram-prison-to-afghans/ Iranian people believe government will go to war to stay in power • Quote: "Our government believes that if it will take a war in order for it to stay in power, then it will go to war," •http://www.foxnews.com/world/2012/09/11/iranian-people-believe-government-will-go-to-war-to-stay-in-power/ President Hamid Karzai welcomed Monday's handover of the main American-run prison to Afghan forces as a victory for Afghan sovereignty, though he and U.S. officials remain locked in a dispute over the fate of hundreds of Taliban and terror suspects are behind bars. As global tensions increase over Iran's ongoing nuclear program, the drumbeats of war are loudly beating for the Iranian people, many believing war is imminent and what the regime is seeking to shake off international pressure and to reunite a fragmented society. Gay Marriage Freedom limited- same- sex people are not allowed to marry in most states.

“North Carolina voted in large numbers for a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriages, partnerships and civil unions, becoming the 30th state in the country and the last in the South to include a prohibition on gay marriage in the state constitution.” What security cameras really do Citizens under constant surveillance- Surveillance video’s used to prosecute shooter.


TUCSON, Ariz. — A federal grand jury indicted Jared Loughner Wednesday on three counts in connection with the Jan. 8 Tucson shooting spree that killed six people and wounded another 13, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords
Loughner has been held in federal custody since the Jan. 8 shooting outside a Safeway grocery store. Surveillance video from the store shows moments of mayhem and a judge's bravery as a gunman shoots Giffords in the face, then turns the gun on a crowd of people waiting to meet the congresswoman, an Arizona sheriff's official said Wednesday.
