We in the West have some great allies. Like the Turks. Who seize the opportunity not to fight against ISIS, preferring to bomb Kurds fighting against ISIS.

I think that the hacker(s) helped, but the real downfall of the CEO/co-founder stems from a variety of extraordinarily deceptive business practices that he fostered. Analysis of the database from Ashley Madison reveals, for example, that not only were most of the female accounts false...they almost all were. For every 7,750 actual men on the site, there were 3 women. Bots were used to simulate the rest, both in terms of account profiles and chat window activity (for which people paid money above and beyond their membership). Then there was the practice of charging money to purge private information...without actually purging the private information. And all of this is, of course, wrapped in the chocolate coating of a website that was ostensibly there to foster betrayal of trust between partners.
If you build a house out of tinder, you can blame the match when it gets burned down...but you can only blame it so much.

The Bush administration offered aid in advance, asked governor Blanco to call out the Guard in advance and do the Stafford Act declarations. She refused. She didn't need his help. Neither Blanco nor then-Mayor (now convict) Ray Nagan executed their mandatory evacuation plans. And even had they done so, New Orleans residents were so used to false alarms that they would not have left. After the storm passed, headlines blared, "New Orleans Dodged A Bullet." Then the gate on the Industrial Canal was damaged by a break-away barge, and the Lower Ninth ward, which is 9 feet below sea level, flooded. The City had evacuated the pump operators in advance of the storm, so they couldn't get back to operate the pumps, which were then submerged and ruined. But of course, it's all George Bush's fault.

Many of them are asylum-seekers traveling from southern entry points such as Greece toward promised lands such as Germany, Austria and Sweden, where successful applicants can win generous benefits. Want to stop it, then stop offering the "generous benefits". Also, if you're seeking asylum, ask for it at the first opportunity, i.e. in Turkey after you crossed out of Syria. It is highly irresponsible to risk your life and others including children by using criminal human traffickers to move you in unsafe boats or overcrowded unventilated trucks.

It's always a good idea to temper optimism in matters middle-eastern. Not just the US and Iran, but Britain, Germany, France, Russia, China, the EU and the UN have put many years of hard work into reaching this agreement. If we were to trash that work now by rejecting the agreement, who rationally would want to talk to us again?

The Chinese breaking diplomatic protocol. The Communists never did apologize for their slaughter of millions of Chinese people.I only hope the Chinese grasp that the Emperor did what he could to defuse the overly ambitious Prime Minister Abe.

He felt he was "entitled" to kill a few folks because life didn't meet his expectations. A small brain with no morals.

Does it really matter who the president or prime minister of Greece is? Does it really matter when elections are? The country is a failed state. It doesn't matter who they are - or, what gender they are - in order to stick their hand out and accept alms from the rest of the EU.

I can see the outcome unfolding.Tsipras goes out as a hero and the new government will just renege on promises and the billions of euros already paid. And then start the whole circus again. Feta and olives will not pay for another 89 billion euros. Although playing dumb, even the IMF, the ECB and so-called (anonymous) investors know that. The EU taxpayer will be in for an unpleasant surprise.
