.
Astronaut Neil Armstrong, first man to step foot on the moon, passed away today at the age of 82. Mr. Armstrong's family released a statement today saying he had died from complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures performed on August 8th, just three days after his 82nd birthday.
NASA Administrator Statement on Neil Armstrong's Death
RELEASE # 12-601 - Saturday, August 25, 2012
..
    The following is a statement from NASA Administrator Charles Bolden regarding the death of former test pilot and NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong. He was 82.
.
    "On behalf of the entire NASA family, I would like to express my deepest condolences to Carol and the rest of Armstrong family on the passing of Neil Armstrong. As long as there are history books, Neil Armstrong will be included in them, remembered for taking humankind's first small step on a world beyond our own.
.
    "Besides being one of America's greatest explorers, Neil carried himself with a grace and humility that was an example to us all. When President Kennedy challenged the nation to send a human to the moon, Neil Armstrong accepted without reservation.
.
    "As we enter this next era of space exploration, we do so standing on the shoulders of Neil Armstrong. We mourn the passing of a friend, fellow astronaut and true American hero."

Israel: On Ground Updates - August 24, 2012


Israel: On Ground Updates
Israel unlikely to provide much if any advance notice to the U.S. if it attacks Iran's Nuclear Facilities - Iran adds many more Uranium Enrichment Machines at its Underground Bunker in Fordow - New Satellite Imagery shows Iran covered suspected Nuclear Site Building at Parchin - Plus Charles Krauthammer’s take

* USA Today brings us the following report and it starts off like this… Israel is unlikely to provide much if any advance notice to the United States if it attacks Iran's nuclear facilities, Middle East experts say… Advance warning is important because a surprise could hurt the United States' ability to respond and safeguard its many assets in the Persian Gulf… The assumption is that U.S. warning of an Israeli attack would come "significantly less than an hour" before it began, said Jon Alterman, director of the Middle East program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "How much of that would come from Israeli notification and how much would come from sensors we have in the region, I don't know."…

.
* JPost.com has this report this late Thursday afternoon and it goes in part like this. In a possible sign of further Iranian defiance in the face of such pressure, several sources said Iran had put in place additional enrichment centrifuges in its Fordow facility, buried deep inside a mountain to protect it against enemy strikes… One source suggested hundreds of machines had been installed… In another development likely to worry the West, they said satellite imagery indicated Iran had covered a building at a military site which UN inspectors want to visit with a brightly-colored, tent-like structure…

* MercuryNews.com has the great read by Charles Krauthammer today that starts off like this… Either Israel is engaged in the most elaborate ruse since the Trojan Horse or it is on the cusp of a pre-emptive strike on Iran's nuclear facilities…

Taking a Moment to Honor our Fallen Heroes


Since that tragic day on 9-11-2001… many of our bravest have given their all while fighting for this great country of ours.

May God bless each and every one of these fallen Heroes, all of those who have been wounded, all of their families, friends, loved ones and their comrades in arms who were at their side.

* Boston.com had this AP report posted up on their website Sunday and this report goes in part like this. …One indirect indication came Sunday, when Israel's military began sending mock text messages to cellphones warning of incoming missiles, part of a nationwide experiment that is to continue through Thursday and reach hundreds of thousands of cellphone users. Last week, defense officials confirmed that Israel's top-tier missile defense system has been upgraded… "All threats directed at the Israeli home front are dwarfed by another threat, different in its magnitude and substance, and so I have repeated and shall repeat: Iran must not be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Sunday…
