The almighty American Military have not yet killed, or captured, or
located bin Laden. This is reminiscent of one of those exaggerated
East Indian hero movies. We can only conclude that God must be

To protect jobs of U.S. lumber mills the U.S. Commerce Department has set two duties totalling 29 per cent for most Canadian lumber producers.
