    Obama celebrated by having a concert with Kelly Clarkson. If it had been Mohammed's birthday, he would've had dinners and fireworks and all kinds of celebrations. Ain't he a peach?

    Normandy ceremonies mark 66th anniversary of D-Day invasion



    COLVILLE-SUR-MER, France (AP) — Veterans and those grateful for their sacrifices have marked the 66th anniversary of the D-Day landings, remembering the invasion that turned the tide of World War II.
    U.S. veteran William Duane Bush, wearing a military jacket, raised the American flag at the Normandy American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer, which overlooks Omaha . It was the first time 93-year-old Bush of Lincoln, Nebraska had returned to Europe since the war's end.
    An ecumenical service was held at the cathedral in the town of Bayeux, where a wreath-laying service also took place at the British military cemetery.
    Some 215,000 Allied soldiers, and roughly as many Germans, were killed or wounded during D-Day and the ensuing nearly three months it took to the capture of Normandy.

    The Memorial Day thread and now this one. Even in subjects of which you should simply pay respects you clowns have to drag in your politics.

    Disrespectful!

    What do you expect? We are not used to having an anti-American president.
