News Briefs – Volume VIII

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories…

Brief 1:  Big New York Brother wants to use the occasion of the failed truck bomb to “flood Manhattan” to stop future attacks.  Someone needs to explain how an inanimate object like a video camera will stop attacks.  Will they be fitted with propulsion systems to they can hurl themselves at would be attackers?  It would be more economical to use drones to fly over the city like on the television series “24.”  My prediction is that they’ll buy cameras made in China.

A New Global Authority

“There is urgent need (for) a true world political authority that can manage the global economy, guarantee the environment is protected, ensure world peace and bring about food security for the poor.”

This is a recent quote from a world leader.  I want you to guess who made the statement. 

  1. Barack Obama
  2. Ban Ki-moon (head of the U.N.)
  3. Warren Buffet (second richest man in the world)
  4. George Clooney
  5. Hu Jintao (leader of China)
  6. Fidel Castro
