AT&T-Mobile

25 Apr

According to The New York Times, on March 20th, 2011 AT&T bought T-Mobile USA for a price they couldn’t refuse. Deutsche Telekom
(the owner of T-Mobile USA) sold T-Mobile USA to AT&T for $39 billion dollars.  T-Mobile USA covers: United States, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. In the article, Andrew Ross Sorkin states “The deal requires approval from both the Justice Department and the Federal Communications Commission. It is unclear how regulators will react, but the companies clearly know the deal faces serious regulatory hurdles.”

TechnoBuffalo is a social network that takes the time to keep people notified about various technical changes. They took the time to create a 10-minute video that will explain the details and opinions for the buying of T-Mobile USA by AT&T.  The question that everyone wants to know is “Is the iPhone coming to T-Mobile USA?” 9to5mac answered the question best. The picture to the right is a cartoon that was made to show the idea of AT&T conquering T-Mobile. Although it may be a good idea to some, it seems to be a bad idea to others. More people seem disappointed by the decision that was made, rather than excited. 

It is a clear conclusion, that AT&T will eventually take over the WORLD!

Saddam Hussien’s Last Years

25 Apr

According to Wikipedia, they define weapons of mass destruction as weapons that can kill and bring great harm to a large number of people. Weapons of mass destruction are but not limited to chemical, biological, or radioactive weapons. Nuclear bombs are the main weapons of mass destruction that the US fear of other countries having. The Federation of American Scientists [FAS] came up with a list that shows countries possessing, pursuing or capable of acquiring weapons of mass destruction. Although there are many countries that have access to weapons of mass destruction, Iraq, was America’s main concern. Not so much Iraq, but the man that was in charge of Iraq, Mr. Saddam Hussein. <– (Picture below)Saddam Hussein has been on the American watch from since he became in power in the 1980s. Piero Scaruffi is calling Saddam Hussein’s killings as one of the worst genocides in the 20th century. During his reign, it is said that he killed approximately 600,000 civilians for unjustified reasons. In a New York Times article that was published on August 2nd 1990, states the invasion of Iraq into Kuwait. This heightened tension lead to the Gulf War. After the Coalition Forces defeated Saddam Hussein, he agreed to get rid of all of his weapons of mass destruction under George H. Bush’s order.  This is what he was suppose to do. Unfortunately, Saddam Hussein did not keep his word nor did he follow the orders. On March 19th, 2003 President George W. Bush ordered the start of a war against Iraq which included an unsuccessful attempt to kill Saddam Hussein. About 45 minutes after the first attack was made in Iraq, George W. Bush addressed the nation in his four minute speech proclaiming war against Iraq.

After the war on Iraq was declared, many major events took place. But two major events that symbolized America’s victory were: when Baghdad fell on April 9th, 2003 and more importantly when Saddam Hussein was captured by the US soldiers. Fox News published an article entitled “Saddam Captured ‘Like a Rat’ in Raid” to describe the breaking news on December 13th, 2003.

A controversy that became clear to the eyes of the American people was “Were there any weapons of mass destruction found?”  Even to this present time, that question is still left unsured. According to The New York Post “Iraq did find Iraq WMD”

After Saddam Hussein was captured he was put on trial for charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. Saddam Hussein went to court a number of times, before the judge gave his verdict on November 5th, 2006.

On December 30th, 2006 Saddam Hussein was executed by being hanged. Here is a video of his execution if you are brave enough to watch. CNN states that Saddam Hussein was executed with ‘fear in his face’
