A book reveals the crucial contribution Royal Marines made to victory in the Falklands War as the government considers reducing the elite unit by 2,000 men. The Falklands War: From Defeat to Victory, by former Royal Marine John Alden tells the incredible story of the capture of his heroic detachment by Argentinian forces who invaded the British islands in April 1982, only for those same marines to return ten weeks later to retake the territory. He is telling his story for the first time in the new book, the insight of which offers intimate snapshots of UK and enemy soldiers during at

It´s very sad to think this may have been the last show of valor demonstrated by Britain before the Muslim takeover. How the mighty have fallen. Where are the people who once sang "Britons never, never, NEVER shall be slaves?"

An argument over a break room light between a group of workers at Philadelphia International Airport ended with one stabbing another to death on Thursday morning. The stabbing involving three Frontier Airlines contractors occurred around 11.30am in a break room on the tarmac near Gate E6 in what city police say was a ´secure area.´ Investigators say one worker turned off a break room light, angering a colleague. The third worker soon pulled out a knife, cutting one of the men across the abdomen. The injured worker, aged 28, was taken to Presbyterian Hospital in critical condition suffering from a wound to his

WASHINGTON - U.S. President Donald Trump has all but decided to withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord by May 12 but exactly how he will do so remains unclear, two White House officials and a source familiar with the administration’s internal debate said on Wednesday. There is a chance Trump might choose to keep the United States in the international pact under which Iran agreed to curb its nuclear program in return for sanctions relief, in part because of “alliance maintenance” with France and to save face for French President Emmanuel Macron, who met Trump last week and urged

AN EXPLOSION during a Jewish celebration in London has left several people injured after crowds gathered to celebrate Lag BaOmer, a Jewish festive day on which bonfires are a tradition. Close to 30 people have been injured following the explosion in Stamford Hill in north London, which may have been caused by a mobile phone. Jewish news website Yeshiva commented on the event, saying: "It appears that the explosion was caused by fuel and not the smartphone, although there definitely were multiple smartphones placed inside the pile to be burned.” Around thirty individuals are believed to have been treated for their injuries,

Rudy Giuliani has said that Donald Trump re-paid Michael Cohen $130,000 after the personal attorney made the initial hush money payment to a porn star who claims to have had an affair with the president over a decade ago. Giuliani, who has joined Trump´s legal team in recent weeks, made the statement during an interview with Sean Hannity on the Fox News Channel late Wednesday. Cohen faces a criminal probe into his business affairs by federal prosecutors in Manhattan, including over the $130,000 payment, which he has called legal. The payment was made to Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress who was

TIJUANA, Mexico - A further 49 Central Americans crossed into the United States to seek asylum on Wednesday, part of a high-profile migrant caravan that prompted Attorney General Jeff Sessions to beef up legal resources on the Mexican border. The 49 migrants, including women, children and transgender people who had been waiting at the U.S. gate for about 15 hours, were let through by midday, according to the group’s organizers, raising the total number who have crossed to 74. Since Monday, border officials have allowed through only a trickle at a time, saying that the busy San Ysidro crossing to San

THE shocking moment the Royal Family discovered Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York’s, tabloid shame has been revealed in an explosive documentary. Sarah, Duchess of York, paved the way for her exit from the royals in 1992 when pictures emerged of the redhead receiving a toe-sucking from oil tycoon John Bryan, who was described as her financial advisor. The Duchess was staying at Balmoral when the shocking images were published and the Windsors came across them in the morning newspapers at the breakfast table. Her relationship with her in-laws, particularly the Duke of Edinburgh, was left in tatters. Royal biographer, Penny Juror,

Migrants have forced police to abandon plans to deport a single refugee from a home in Germany. Two hundred asylum seekers described as ´mostly African´ swarmed around three police cars dispatched to take their fellow refugee to an airport where a plane waited to fly him to the Congo. Then they issued an ultimatum - take the handcuffs from their friend and set him free or risk ´massive violence.´ Police said they had no choice but to free the man in order to avoid bloodshed. Angry migrants hammered on the police vehicles so forcefully that all three were dented. The authorities said the

Day after day I make it a point never to read The New Yorker, a magazine that used to publish writers like J.D. Salinger. It topped the field in fiction and literary journalism until…until David Remnick took over as editor, turning it into tabloid smut whose main business is to resist Donald Trump. Reading The New Yorker was like being in a place where good people relaxed and reasoned together. That was before. These days only radical leftists need apply for positions as writers or readers and this reader finally had enough. I said so when the abuse against Trump began to

Tim Scott, the Senate´s sole black Republican, knew the color of his skin made him a target for Internet trolls and bigots. Then came the voicemails and the death threat. Last fall, federal authorities arrested a Georgia man for calling in a profanity-laced death threat to Scott´s Washington office. On Tuesday, 41-year-old Jason Kenneth Bell confirmed he was that caller and pleaded guilty to two counts of anonymous telecommunications harassment, the U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia announced. Bell told U.S. District Court Judge Marc T. Treadwell he did not give his name when he called on Oct. 23 and

NEW YORK — For 108 years, the Boy Scouts of America´s flagship program has been known simply as the Boy Scouts. With girls soon entering the ranks, the group says that iconic name will change. The organization on Wednesday announced a new name for its Boy Scouts program: Scouts BSA. The change will take effect next February. Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh said many possibilities were considered during lengthy and "incredibly fun" deliberations before the new name was chosen.

Crying poverty amid decade-long stagnant salaries and Washington’s steep cost of living, an increasing number of House lawmakers have turned into professional squatters at night, hitting the sack in their Capitol Hill offices — on everything from cots in closets to futons stashed behind constituent couches — to save a few bucks during the work week. “Washington is too expensive,” said Rep.
