He was more than just a ex president, albeit, unelectected. The guy was the leader of the ruthless Northern Alliance. A killer of Pastuns. If you don't understand this, imagine Mexico, armed gangs everywhere and drugs. The Taliban never "built" Al Quieda, they were created as a result of Bush sending Christian US soldiers to Saudi Arabia, the holy land of Mecca and Medina. Taliban beating women and kids is a gross exaggeration for propaganda purposes. The same can be said about America jailing black people for having a fashion that shows their underwear, or Muslim women fined for wearing their choice of clothing in France. Don't believe the hype. Under the Taliban their was no crime, peace and heroin was banned. Now it resembles Mexico.

Hamas is a social organisation trying to assist and protect their families in the worlds largest concentration camp, so don't scream "terrorist". And regarding the vote, I see the good old USA is offering lucrative aide bribes to Bosnia and Portugal if they vote against, and also possibly bribes to Nigeria and Gabon. Israel is threatened to unleash vicious punishment on the Palestinians if they don't submit.
All the Palastinians want is a slice of their country back and to live in peace.

Kids sent home from school, no wind, sunny. Hope they retest all the rice again after the storm in Fukushima. All the results before will be out of date.

Look deeper into this story. Of course we can only make predictions, but these so called experts, in an official capacity, public ally reassured the public that there was no chance of an earthquake. If they were real scientists, they would of said, yes it is possible, please take suitable measures.

Not only should Palestine be recognised, but Israel should face justice and recognise peace.

Why did it take so long to end this discrimination? Then again, this is a country that had segregation about 50 years ago.

This bullying by Japan, Philippines and Vietnam is getting ridiculous. Why are they poking sticks at China. China is a peaceful country and not warlike and aggressive. Such provocations just lead to an expensive arms race which aides nobody. In the philipinnes and Vietnam and Even China, many people live on less than 2dollars a day. What a waste of money weapons are.

They are experts paid and educated by the people. It was their job to warn the people. But they did the opposite and lied to the people and now 300 are dead. They should not tell people false information. Otherwise no scientist can ever be trusted. At the very least they should be jailed as an example of how serious their job is and a lesson on responsibility. Charging them with murder is a bit steep though, if they started doing that there would be no weather forecasters on NHK.
