As all factions support Abe, there will be greater demands placed on him by other party members to reward them for their loyalty.

Under what authority does the U.S. have the authority to decide that the governing regime in Syria must be changed? The same authority that resulted in changing the regime in Ukraine from one favorable toward Russia toward one favorable to the U.S.? I'd love to see a drastic regime change in Washington, away from militarism, neoliberalism and neoconservativism, and the pursuit of empire.

Progress comes with change and vice versa. Manipulate away! When the shock-horror of the unenlightened has been overcome then that will be the only way to go regarding we as a species, Change is desperately needed because of our disparities in intelligence - and above all character. The human world can be ugly and vicious, or kind and wonderful, it all depends on our genes.

Even though this is exactly one of the reasons there are at least two capable pilots on every commercial flight it still must be incredibly difficult to land a plane (or complete any number of other tasks) with a colleague--not to mention probably a friend--dead or dying in the seat next to you. Applause to the co-pilot.

What has bothered me more than anything about the TPP, is to realize that a so called member of the Democratic Party (Pres. Obama) has worked so long and so hard to pass, a global, multinational so- called treaty. A treaty that has profit and control as its primary goal. And to hell with American citizens, for if this gets passed, the core objective of the TPP will be to give corporations sovereignty over nations. As transnational corporations, multinational corporations continue to grow and consolidate their monopoly control over technology, natural resources, etc. etc, we really will have to face what at one time seemed like a far-out concept, that of one world government. A globalist, corporate government in control.
Actually a corporate coup.

If this were to happen in America it would be 7/24 headline news for months. The US invasion of Iraq created the current situation where these things happen daily, yet it's a byline story for a day. Apparently in America we don't value lives in Iraq anywhere near American lives. I wonder how George Bush sleeps at night?

Turkey, the country that pretended to bomb ISIS but instead bombed the Kurds who are fighting ISIS? That Turkey? The airbase might still be useful, but otherwise Turkey is unsuitable as an ally. If NATO is so concerned about airspace, they ought to stay out of Syrian airspace.

The TPP is being negotiated by governments and corporate lobby groups but kept secret from the public in all countries. Hands up everyone who believe this being done with best interest of the public as the main priority.
If anyone thinks this is wrong, please point to any officially released draft of the TPP.
Apple Inc takes $2 bilion out of Australia, pays $50 milion tax and keeps the profit away from the US so it does not pay tax there. Expect to see many more such deals for the 1% if the TPP is enacted.

This mindless vicious attack by a man who obviously was a mental mess and who singled out Christians to kill them DOES NOT mean that a war against Christians has taken place other than in this man's warped and diseased mind. But I'm afraid that there are so many ignorant people who will claim that there is this war and all of us who are not deity worshipers HATE all those who do, which is far, far from the truth.

The MSF is trying to cover up their incompetence for staying in a combat zone too long and then getting used by the Taliban. There are no sanctuaries in a hot combat zone.

There should be a statute of limitations on the death penalty. If appeals have not been exhausted in, say, 10 years at the most, the convicted party escapes execution, spending the rest of his or her life in prison instead.

If the the hospital was a Taliban base, what is the "right decision".
The right decision is for the US to leave the ME. Afghanistan has rejected our type of government. The US fails with attempts to introduce a democratic, inclusive system.
Only the ME countries can choose how they want to live. The US can not bomb our way to peace.
Bring all our troops and personnel home. ASAP.

Russian warplanes will destroy the command and control component of the war against Assad. This will leave the various anti-Assad brigades without leadership or the ability to coordinate the various forces of various names. Next, the Syrian, Iranian and Lebanese (Hezbollah) ground troops will go after the Saudi and U.S. trained scum (of various names) who will be without direction or intelligence, aided by Russian air support. It will be quick.

We were in Afghanistan for one reason ONLY ... to capture or kill Osama bin Laden, the man behind 9/11.
Osama has been dead (or presumed dead) since 2011. Consequently, the United States of America has no further reason for being in Afghanistan.
But we've had troops, drones, missiles, "private defense contractors" etc., ad nauseum in Afghanistan for FOURTEEN YEARS NOW ... through most of Dubya's two terms, and almost all of Obama's two terms thus far.
This cannot continue. We need to get the hell out NOW. Let somebody who lives in the region do their own damned fighting. Maybe we should take Bernie Sanders' advice and talk to our so-called allies in Saudi Arabia — who have the third-largest defense budget in the world — and tell the Saudis to DEFEND THEIR OWN TURF ...
... because it's way past time for the United States of America's War Machine to STAND DOWN NOW!

Once again, all the warning signs were there, but nothing was apparently done to get the mental health expertise he obviously needed. Most disturbing, the parents never acted. Think Tucson, Aurora, and Sandy Hook as examples of parents not willing to admit that Johnny has a problem when they should be the first to sound the alert. Disgusting!
Please don't give me that Second Amendment baloney unless you belong to a "well-regulated militia."

If Russia would take out the CIA terror training camps and cut off the CIA supply routes, that would go a long way to strangling the terror war and instilling panic. Once the rout begins, it will build on itself.
