The former First Lady remains forever an icon.
When Jaqueline Bouvier married John F. Kennedy in 1953, she became the other half of a society couple that was envied and idolized the world over. Soft-spoken and supremely stylish, Jackie first earned international fame as her husband's reluctant companion on the campaign trail. The two brought youth and optimism to the White House, but it was images of the First Lady and her young children bidding farewell to JFK after his tragic assassination that cemented the Kennedy legacy in history, making them iconic political and public figures for years to come. Beyond her life as a Kennedy, Jackie reinvented herself in her second marriage to Aristotle Onassis in 1968, and later embarked on her second chapter as a book editor in New York.
Now, 25 years after she passed away from Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma at age 64, we're taking a look back on the remarkable life of Jaqueline Kennedy Onassis.
Anonymous: Trump’s suggestion that the U.S. could expropriate a portion of Syria’s oil “sounds like the international crime of pillage,” Ryan Goodman, a former special legal counsel at the Department of Defense who is now at the New York University School of Law, said.

The international rules of war, he added, were designed “to deter nations from engaging in predatory wars to seize other countries’ natural resources.” “Bring in US oil companies to modernize the field. WHAT ARE WE BECOMING.... PIRATES?” General Barry McCaffrey (Ret.), who commanded a mechanized Army division in Iraq during the Gulf War, tweeted.
