7:14 pm
europe and back to the united states robert gates displayed unbelievable specter of sincerity and candor providing he's honest and unvarnished assessment of the united states strategic overreach all across the globe and somehow i have a hunch that in his upcoming memoirs robert gates will explain his run unfinished dream that is to finish the job keep initiated in his previous capacity as the cia chief when he opened up at pounder of box oath extremism in pakistan and in afghanistan only to be called back to duty almost thirty years later to eradicate the evidence which is so carefully rared then groomed in his previous capacity as the cia chief. social media has brought about

7:19 pm
and soon gained real popularity arm wrestling as one of the most peaceful combat of sport that actually doesn't require any special equipment and people of all ages have a real chance of winning if i did something quite so. i. have the chance of winning right now i'm going to check it for myself. oh it's certainly easy. spending hours of the jam i've been as trainee louisa as she doesn't know if she'll have or have enough money to go to the championships but she never loses hope. maybe it is an incorrect comparison but sport is like a swamp for me once you get into there is simply not. turning back i tried to start but i can't live without it and they will continue hoping that one day we will be recognized by the public. it seems like occasion women are following hard on the
