Obama denounces deadly attack on British soldier

WASHINGTON, May 23 - U.S. President Barack Obama on Thursday denounced the deadly attack on a British soldier in a London street a day ago.

"I condemn in the strongest terms the appalling attack against a British service member in Woolwich on May 22," the president said in a statement. "The United States stands resolute with the United Kingdom, our ally and friend, against violent extremism and terror."

The soldier was hacked to death by two attackers wielding knives including a meat cleaver near the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich in southeast London on Wednesday afternoon.

The attackers were shot by the police arriving on the scene, and were sent to separate hospitals for treatment. British Prime Minister David Cameron called it a possible "terrorist incident."

"There can be absolutely no justification for such acts," Obama said, noting the G8 summit slated for June in Northern Ireland will include discussions on the security challenges facing both the U.S. and Britain.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
