As tensions escalate over Iran's nuclear ambitions, the United States and two dozen nations are stepping up their presence in the Persian Gulf by performing one of the largest anti-mining exercises ever conducted. CNN’s Chris Lawrence is reporting live from the USS Enterprise, just days away from the exercises.

    Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don't need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can't do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways.,`':

    Definitely concur with just what you satted. Your explanation was undoubtedly the simplest to understand. I typically get annoyed when individuals discuss factors that they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail on the head and explained the whole thing without problem. Perhaps, individuals can take a signal. Will more than likely be back again to acquire more. Many thanks

    America has invaded sixty countries since world war 2.

    In 1953, America overthrow Iran's democratic government and installed a brutal dictator Shah of Iran. America helped Shah to established secret police and killed hundreds of thousands of Iranians.

    During Iran-Iraq war, America helped Saddam Hussein and killed one million Iranians. America is the only country that shot down Iran's civilian air plain and killed all 290 passengers.

    In 2003, America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and displaced 4,000,000+ Iraqi people.
    Now, America is a failed country with huge debt. Its debt will be 24 trillion by 2015.

    Every other day a city in America is declaring bankruptcy. ha ha ha ha ha ha

      Yeah, but we're still #1 in killing Muslims. #2 is "other Muslisms".

      For 1 your status are way off "1,000,000+" way less than that and not all of those fatalities are of US or allied direct action in combat, theoretically a lot of those were at the hand of the militants in Iraq who were suicide bombing and car bombing heavily populated areas markets etc.
      2 half of the world is bankrupt look at the EU they aren't doing to well either. If you are going to post make sure you are using facts not just personal bias or anti-western or allied sites.

      Jannani sounds like you are a disgruntled Muslim hypocrite? I most more than positive that you are in a country who smiles at the USA while taking our money while wishing us death. Second, the number one killer of Muslims is Muslims. Look at the Iran-Iraq war or how many Kurds Turkey and Iraq kill. Look at your culture how decrepit it has become. You worship only parts of the Koran you see fit that aligns with your Anti Western view. Sadly, your own people kill more than America does. What is so great about here is that even your Punjabi, Kurds, Muslims etc can come live here and cross the street, picket at work, send their Muslim girls to school without haivng to worry about her being massacred by some lunatic Muslim who thinks girls shouldnt go to school. Also your facts about every other day a city goes bankrupt is so SOUNDLY incorrect. Get your facts straight.
