"IF" by Rudyard Kipling...Dedicated to Jay S. Hamilton & Dads Everywhere ~ By John Hamilton

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/16/2019 08:59 AM
Denair, CA...We originally posted this for Father's in 2006. My father would turn 103 this year if he were here today. This poem was my father's favorite. This one is dedicated to my Father...Jay S. Hamilton. Dad was born in November of 1916 and died in May of 1991 of a Glioblastoma brain tumor. His life saw deep tragedy but he always rose above it. He was born in a house in rural Oklahoma with no electricity or running water. His Mom burned to death when he was 9 years old from a kerosene lantern fire while he was at home.....

Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo on Attacks in Gulf of Oman

Posted by: thepinetree on 06/14/2019 09:15 AM
Washington, DC...Good afternoon. It is the assessment of the United States Government that the Islamic Republic of Iran is responsible for the attacks that occurred in the Gulf of Oman today. This assessment is based on intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation, recent similar Iranian attacks on shipping, and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication.
