    Trying to assess the historical significance of Emperor Hirohito's 60-year reign has always placed the Japanese in a delicate but undeniable quandary. Since the end of World War II, many Japanese have accepted the vogue of dismissing Hirohito as a mere figurehead whose role was more of a pawn's than a king's in the chess game of 20thcentury history. More traditional thinkers have opposed that trend, seeking to attribute a deeper significance to the emperor's admittedly limited powers. The problem with the latter train of thought is that it makes it difficult for traditionalists not to lay a portion of the blame for the catastrophe of World War II on Hirohito's doorstep.

    This story is insightful so sad. Palmer and similar psychopathic killers are vile beyond words but the locals who lure the animals off the preserve are perhaps even more detestable (if that's possible.) They enrich themselves at the expense of many hard working people who manage the preserve. What a bunch of jerks. I hope they get tossed in a dark cell for a long long time.

    The TPP is nothing short of an international corporate coup des lois that will impose corporate rule on the United States. It is fundamentally un-American. Bottom Line: It's basically a race to the bottom for the 99%.

    Hillary is going to kick Republican rump. And she will be the Golda Meir of US policy. And she will cackle her way into reelection.

    The Taliban was created, funded, trained and controlled as a proxy for the Pakistan Army by the ISI. (intelligence service of Pakistan). The sad part is that this idiotic self-delusion has cost the lives of thousands of our sons and daughters in uniform. Sickening.

    The TPP is not about trade, but about the giving away the sovereignty of the United States and the individual states to fascist corporations, capitalism on steroids. Yes, the New World Order will destroy American jobs and American salaries. We have lost over 65,000 factories since NAFTA.

    "The two-meter (six-foot) long piece of wreckage, known as a flaperon, has been sent to France for analysis." I think the flaperons of all the other Boeing 777s in the world are currently accounted for.

    Who on earth is naive enough to think that allies don't spy on one another? This is not news. It's never been news. It's always been common sense to know what everyone---not just some---is doing, thinking and planning. This organization that claims to foster transparency, has become one of the most opaque and secretive media entities in the world.

    The world would be better off without ultra-conservative religious extremists and the harm that they cause, and it doesn't matter the religion – be they ultra-Orthodox Jews, Muslim jihadists, or far-right Christians. They’re all one in the same and not a dime's worth of difference between them, always trying to impose their version of the "one true faith" on those around them.

    The Dayton Accords should have taught us that negotiations in luxurious Alpine hotels and 5-star tropical beachfront resorts tend to drag on and on and on and on...whereas conferences in airplane hangers in dull Midwestern cities are promptly and successfully concluded!

    No doubt El Chapo is in the sanctuary city of San Francisco, where Obama and the Democrat Party gleefully welcome ILLEGAL immigrants to sneak in, get settled in, and then go kill some US citizens. Si Se Puede!

    The two most populous countries, both nuclear armed, sharing a common border and diminishing resources, in particular water. Why does this not make me feel warm and fuzzy?

    Expected I guess, with Japan and the U.S. performing drills with India and soon to include several other states in the area, this is the normal response though the disparity of their fleets would be an issue not to mention the eternal mistrust Russia has always felt for China.

    The real issue is that ALL people, whomever they love or have sex with, should be entitled to full equality under the law--exactly as the Constitution promises.

    For anyone (like me) who didn't know of the top of their head where the island of Reunion is, it's about 500 miles (give or take) due East of about the mid-point (North-to-South) of Madagascar (that big island off the East coast of the African continent. Reunion is along the Western extent of the Indian Ocean.
