    Can I also say that the India was the invader as a matter of fact?

    Erm, can I have some of what you've been smoking?

    In a sign of the volume of such dramas, earlier reports said a Chinese TV extra was cast as a member of the Japanese forces more than 200 times in 2012, sometimes dying on set eight times in a single day.

    Wow. Even Jesus be like "I rose from the dead just once".

    It has been a really long time since I have used the words "justifiable US military intervention". This was just an assessment mission though.

    First time I saw him was on "Whose line is it anyway?", and absolutely loved his comedy. So sad to hear this news.

    According to Ministry of Defense officials, in April of this year Katagiri was transferred from the ASDF to the Ministry of Defense Inspector General Headquarters. As inspector general, Katagiri had been in charge of enforcing sexual harassment prevention protocols.

    I'd facepalm harder, but due to these cases being all too frequent, my nose is now in a somewhat fragile condition.

    Wikileaks have been posting some interesting leaked cables by the Israeli government to the US Embassy in Tel Aviv. I think they mentioned on Twitter that the cables were part of what Snowden revealed. One is in reference to Lebanon and the official policy after that war in 2006 about how to respond to threats.

    https://wikileaks.org/plusd/cables/08TELAVIV2329_a.html

    (OC Northern Command Maj. Gen. Gadi) Eisenkot labeled any Israeli response to resumed conflict the "Dahiya doctrine" in reference to the leveled Dahiya quarter in Beirut during the Second Lebanon War in 2006. He said Israel will use disproportionate force upon any village that fires upon Israel, "causing great damage and destruction." Eisenkot made very clear: this is not a recommendation, but an already approved plan -- from the Israeli perspective, these are "not civilian villages, they are military bases." Eisenkot in this statement echoed earlier private statements made by IDF Chief of General Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, who said the next fight in Southern Lebanon would come at a much higher cost for both sides -- and that the IDF would not hold back.

    Since the Hamas takeover, Israel has designated Gaza as a &hostile entity," and maintained an economic embargo against the territory. Under this designation, decisions on shekels in circulation in Gaza and the territory's economy in general are treated by the GOI as security matters, and therefore are subject to the same high levesl of uncertainty that the GOI uses to keep potential sources of security threat off-balance. Israeli officials have confirmed to Embassy officials on multiple occasions that they intend to keep the Gazan economy functioning at the lowest level possible consistent with avoiding a humanitarian crisis.

    So far, he has given no statement about his motivation, other than to say he liked Sakura and wanted to be with her, police said.

    And what better way to accomplish that than threatening to kill the 11 year old with a knife, right?

    I feel sick. Throw the book at him.

    The plane crossed the entire length of Ukraine. I'm pretty confident the Ukrainian authorities were well aware of this flight. They wouldn't shoot it down. Even if they suspected it to be something else, it was flying away from Kiev and about to enter Russian airspace. Why shoot a plane which is about to exit your airspace?

    Circumstantial evidence strongly points to this being an action of the Russian backed rebels in Eastern Ukraine. Hope they are brought to justice.

    Messi the best player of this tournament? What a joke! At times he wasn't even the best player in the Argentine team.

    Israel IS breaking the rules of engagement. I understand they want to stop Hamas from firing the rockets, but exactly how bombing civilians accomplishes this really escapes me.

    The best team won, and I couldn't be happier! Germany were great throughout the tournament, and it is only fitting that they lift the trophy. Argentina did put up a good fight though, so kudos and commiserations to them.

    Congratulation Germany, you truly deserved it!

    Neymar would not have made an iota of difference given the shambolic defending that was on display from Brazil. Thiago Silva was the only thing holding that defense together.

    To be honest, even if both Neymar and T. Silva had played, at best Brazil would have only lost 4 - 0 or something. Germany were a class above them.

    For those who saw the game but do not follow European club football - PSG paid Chelsea 50 million pounds for David Luiz. Yes, that makes him the most expensive defender in the world. Just let that sink in.

    This Brazil team are pretenders and do not anything on the great Brazilian teams of the past. Scraped through the other stages of the tournament, and got shown as soon as they met a real Championship level team. I was rooting for Germany so can't really complain, but there was a point where even my elation turned to horror at what was going on. I hoped for the WC semi-final to be a contest. What I got was a decimation so brutal I could barely even watch.

    Can't wait for the other SF. Hopefully more of a contest than this massacre.

    Nishimura? After that monumental mess-up in the opening match of this tournament? I see the idiot Cakir has been retained as well. If either of these get the final and Brazil go through, the other team might as well go home.

    @Jimizo. I will admit I'm biased because he is our incoming manager. The substitution of the tournament comment was just a tongue-in-cheek. But there can be no denying that it takes massive balls to do something like that. I haven't been gushing about other coaches because I think no other coach makes calls that have such an impact on the game. Case in point was the Mexico game, where van Gaal used the drinks break to tweak his formation. He brought off van Persie and brought on Huntelaar, moved Kuyt from right-back to forward thus creating enough space for Robben to run at the defenders and ultimately draw the foul/penalty that Huntelaar scored. The only other manger at the tournament that I have this much respect for is Germany's Joachim Loew. And to be honest, pound for pound, Germany has better players in almost all positions compared to Holland.

    That's just me though. I'm excited to see him manage United in the PL. I think we have a tactically astute manager who has the guts to make calls someone like Moyes didn't. The best part? van Gaal may put Rooney in his place, i.e., on the bench if he under-performs.

    @Jimizo. You are most welcome mate. :)

    I do hope you realize that makes a lot of television pundits like Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer, etc. (just to name the BBC ones) and nearly all football writers Man United fans.

    http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/28180956

    Gary Lineker: "What a performance, and what a piece of management by Louis van Gaal. Alan Shearer: "Big managers have to make big calls in big games, and that was a huge call by Van Gaal. He has got all the big decisions right at this World Cup."

    Enjoy those fits of laughter as long as you can. I fear they may not last very long. :)

    @Elbuda. My friend if you watch football regularly, you would know that the score does not tell the story of how the game went, just who won at the end. On any another day where van Persie wasn't missing chances given to him on a plate, the game could have easily ended 3-0 in favor of Holland in normal time. That's not to say that Costa Rica made it easy for them. They fought like lions, but the Dutch were better for most of the game, with just really poor finishing stopping them until the penalties.

    Louis van Gaal with probably the substitution of the tournament. And it defied logic at the time given Krul's record in the PL regarding penalties (2 saved in last 20). But it worked. And he guessed correctly each time.

    At one time I was genuinely scared for the Dutch. They just couldn't seem to put the ball in the net. And penalties has never really been their forte. But credit to the players who stepped up to the plate and made themselves count.

    The Costa Rica team has done itself and the country proud. Heroic performance from them this entire WC. It was so Krul on them.
