Men who have received terrible burns across their bodies; toddlers who have lost legs to shrapnel wounds; people with leprosy and malnutrition; and children severely burned during middle-of-the-night attacks. It is an endless parade of victims with every war zone injury imaginable. When the war first broke out, the Catholic mission that sponsored me wanted me to evacuate and return to the United States. But I stayed, and Ive never regretted that decision. The difficulties of running a hospital in a conflict zone, however, cannot be underestimated. The staples for running a hospital anywhere else in the world electricity and running water are a luxury to us. And, most types of foreign aid are nonexistent. We dont have access to medical technology. We dont even have reliable telephone access. But Im always on call, delivering babies, treating cancer, training my staff and all too often, repairing the wounds inflicted by war.

You have to respect the rule of law and the rules of the game. The Hawaii senator said that Sessions ought to formally apologize to the Hawaii judge, Derrick Watson, and the people of the state, a call Sessions rebuffed during an interview earlier Friday. On CNN, Sessions was asked if he regretted his comments. “I don't know that I said anything that I would want to phrase differently, he said. No. We’re going to defend the president's order. We believe it’s constitutional.” The attorney general added that he was not criticizing the state, calling it a fabulous place and noting that his granddaughter had been born there. During an interview with conservative radio host Mark Levin Wednesday, Sessions was asked to weigh in on Judge Watson's ruling to block President Donald Trump's second travel ban order. “I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the president of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and constitutional power,” Sessions said.

The diplomat regretted that some countries of the region encourage the US to use force. He said that these behaviors of these countries are in stark contrast with good neighborliness of the countries of the region, and the peace, stability, and welfare of the nations of the region. The Pakistani envoy, for his part, praised the position of parliamentary relations in bolstering and easing inter-relations and broke the news that the Speaker of the National Assembly of Pakistan will visit Tehran in the near future. “Unfortunately, the political and security chaos and regional crises secure the interests of the Zionist regime and harm Muslims,” underlined the Pakistani envoy to Tehran. “Muslim countries should closely cooperate to strengthen their scientific and technical capabilities and evading tensions prevent the intervention of the foreigners.”

"You know what embodies the program: ‘I Don't Care,' because they don't give a shit about people," Perez said after dismissing "Trumpcare" and "Ryancare" as potential titles for the bill, which was never brought up for a vote. MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-host Willie Geist confronted Perez earlier this month regarding his inflammatory language and asked him whether he regretted his colorful words due to their divisiveness, the Washington Free Beacon reported . "You know, I don't," responded Perez, who then listed off some of President Trump's policy changes, saying that's what he regrets. "What I have regrets about are all the people who are scared to death as a result of the first 60 days of chaos and carnage in this administration," Perez said. "The children who got dropped off at school and literally saw their father half a block away getting arrested by [Immigration and Customs Enforcement].

Dear Jim, Ours is a one-way relationship. I had written you an open letter in 2015 when you had profoundly declared to exit the Indian equity market. In your recent interview, you have understandably regretted that decision. I wish you had read my letter and acted upon it, as by now you would have more-than-doubled your wealth in USD terms by investing in Kotak Emerging Equity Fund with a nominal leverage. I am writing this letter to present facts that have been overlooked by you. 'The Indian Equity markets are at an all-time high' It is half-truth to say that equity markets are at all-time high. Numerically, Sensex is near an all-time high level, but from the valuation point of view, it is far away from the levels seen in bubble years of 1992 and 2000 or expensive valuations of end 2007. My recommendation will be to look at valuation, not numerical level of index.

IFP- An Iranian official declared that immigrants and refugees who have a work permit and reside in Iran will be covered by the Social Security Organisation. Foreign nationals and refugees who have a work permit and are residing inside the country will be covered by the Social Security Organisation and can benefit from pension payment, blood money coverage and disablement benefits, said the director general of foreign nationalsaffairs at Social Security Organisation Hossein Joudaki. “Most foreign residents who have been in Iran for more than 20 years are not currently eligible for any benefits since they have not been insured all these years,” he noted, according to a report by Financial Tribune. He regretted the fact that Iran has not been able to benefit from foreign residents– most of whom are Afghans and Iraqis– in line with national interests despite three decades of their presence in Iran.

James Corden may have regretted criticizing today's divas after engaging in a highly-competitive riff-off' with Demi Lovato , who proved her point that modern divas can blow you away. Divas back then were just better than divas are today. Know what I mean?, bemoaned Corden, on last night's Late Late Show . They didn't have Instagram, they just had sass, voice, souls. At this, Lovato stormed on stage. If you think divas back then were better and I think divas today are better, why don't we just settle this tonight? she asked him. Corden and Lovato then began an impromptu' riff-off, which began with Lovato singing Adele's Rolling in the Deep.' Next, Corden threw himself into Tina Turner's River Deep, Mountain High,' at which Lovato held her ear and made a highly unimpressed face.

IRNAForeign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi said that arms sales to the aggressors who kill innocent people in the region, especially in the ongoing unequal war in Yemen, is not consistent with the claims recently made by British Prime Minister Theresa May. The British premier is currently on a visit to Saudi Arabia. Qasemi made his remarks while reacting to May's anti-Iran statements in Saudi Arabia. The spokesman regretted this is not the first time that the British prime minister preferred falseness to truth. “The repeated and unfounded statements in accusing Iran of causing instability in the region are made at a time when it seems that she (May) has forgotten her position and responsibility and closed her eyes to global developments and ignored the fact that a major portion of instability and backwardness of the region have been originated from the colonial, expansionist and injustice policies of her predecessors as well as their allies in aggression and inflaming wars in the regional countries,” Qasemi said.

I guarantee you, just as the Democrats regretted what Harry Reid did, we will regret doing this, McCain said . I have no choice. Because we need to confirm Gorsuch. Leonard Leo, an adviser to President Trump on this process, also blamed Democrats. At the end of the day, if the Senate Democrats want to point the finger at whats causing the Senate to decline in terms of its deliberative nature, they should basically look in the mirror rather than point the finger at the nuclear option, he said. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer rejects this argument, placing the blame ultimately on Republicans rather than on his own caucuss decision to filibuster. No one is making our Republican colleagues change the rules, he said on the floor Tuesday. Senator McConnell and my Republican colleagues are completely free actors and making a choice, a very bad one in our opinion.

"You know what embodies the program: I Don't Care,' because they don't give a shit about people," Perez said after dismissing "Trumpcare" and "Ryancare" as potential titles for the bill, which was never brought up for a vote.

" In a lengthy memorandum obtained by The Associated Press, the State Department said the U.N. fund partners with China's National Health and Family Planning Commission, responsible for overseeing China's "two-child policy" — a loosened version of the notorious "one-child policy" in place from 1979 to 2015. It said the U.N. collaborates with the Chinese agency on family planning. Still, the memo acknowledged there was no evidence of U.N. support for forced abortions or sterilization in China. The U.N. Population Fund, known as UNFPA, said it regretted the U.S. move and argued it was "erroneous" to suggest it was complicit in China's policies. "UNFPA refutes this claim, as all of its work promotes the human rights of individuals and couples to make their own decisions, free of coercion or discrimination," the agency said in a statement. The designation was the latest move by the Trump administration to prioritize traditionally conservative issues in the federal budget.

"They were merely mocking the religion, and this is what I regretted the most," he added. Najib, on Wednesday called off plans to take over and table the bill after taking into account the consensus of the coalition parties. "Evidently, they (BN) were not serious on pushing the bill. They just wanted to see Pakatan Harapan fall, and in that sense, they have succeeded," he said. On a report that Selangor has the highest number of bankrupt individuals, Azmin said the figure, amounting to 70,817, did not provide the actual picture of the status of bankruptcy in the state. "The bankruptcy status must be looked at again. Sometimes, some people are merely guarantors," he said.
