    And the US oil companies are trying to produce more oil to sell overseas. Both the EU and US are trying to drop their reliance on oil (which is eventually going to run out anyway....).

    No, this man's actions over the years were more than enough to show he was a serial nutcase. At 50 years he had more than enough time to get some wisdom with the grey hairs, but instead was still acting like a complete freak. A long violent and offensive criminal record should easily put this guy behind bars for life. Australia needs a 2-3 strikes and your out law.

    Damned if you do and damned if you don't. But if the Nigerian government can't supply their military with equivalent weapons to keep back BH then I can understand to an extent why they wouldn't stand and fight. But at the same time many Islamist groups have made do with much less. IEDs ring a bell? Infiltration? etc. This is what I meant in an earlier post about patriotism.

    If a government can't take care of it's people properly, then the people will not be patriotic for the government.

    Spend as much as you want on your girl. I've always been good at budgeting and can get almost anything I want (under $20,000) but with a lot of patience. Manage your money as a tool instead of spending it like a fool. All the items I invested into giving as a present to my special lady she's always appreciated and reciprocated with her emotional response. All everyone really wants is love, and buying certain things that you know he/she will like and make use of can show how much you love them and vice versa.

    The money is reasonable. While it is not the worth of a human life, the best way to get to someone (or a group of someones) is to hit their pocket books. 75mil of city revenue will peeve off the state legislature so that they'll be more inspired to pay attention and write better laws so they don't lose money like this again.

    The biggest problem with this is that every idiot soldier like this has what the US military would deem sensitive information about military movements, plans etc. As disgusting as this was, this **s***d will pretty much only be allowed judgement in a US court and expelled from the military (determined mostly by how much they think they need him) and if he's not worth keeping, then they might turn him over to the Filipino authorities. If only he didn't do this $h!+ in the first place, because its continuous idiots like him that caused the US military to be kicked out of the Phillipines in the first place.

    Now these guys will believe they can dictate what movies the studios can and can't release. Sony just doesn't know how damned stupid it was caving in to this. Just release it on DVD/Blu-ray for free or something to make it up for freedom of "artistic" license.

    It really wasn't my kind of movie either, but when a foreign government can pressure a private corporation not even located on their soil to cancel a film not even made for their country with threats of violence on foreign soil where said film is release.... As an American I'm pissed. But it was also the idiot theaters pissing in their pants. If NK even had the gall to attempt an attack on US soil regardless, the US government would absolutely love to eliminate the regime cos it gives them an excuse to strike and then turn over what's left to SK.

    I keep saying, patriotism should never be taught (and really can't be taught) by a country. It has to be earned because when a country's government earns the respect of it's citizens by what it does for it's citizens the citizens will be truly patriotic.

    Gotta start fish farms folks, or keep some facilities that can artificially inseminate the eggs until they hatch and release them back to sea.

    The number one thing they need to do is allow the species in dangerously low populations to breed up to snuff. If they don't, there will be no more of those types of fish and nothing to overfish. Extinction is forever.

    Can't imagine why the Cheney/Bush... Hilary/Obama teams chose not to simply implant released detainees and GPS track them to where a bunch of other like bearded guys might be

    Its a great idea, but unfortunately these groups would know there was a tracking device on someone returned to them and they actually do have surgeons of their own that could easily take it out of the person it was implanted on. Chess man, play chess so you can think steps ahead of your enemy.

    Sigh.... one day the US will be gone and we won't have to hear the whiney sniveling gits who are complaining about this because they'll have to be doing it themselves as their world falls apart around them.

    I'm pretty sure all American's posting here agree that torture is wrong, but those of us that advocate for the CIA to do it's duty to gather whatever information they can get by using whatever means necessary within reason (prisoners still get food and healthcare to keep them alive) even if it makes the person being interrogated miserable and uncomfortable. If we just kept them in prison and let them walk around freely and fed them and let them sleep, they'd just see it as a Hilton hotel with bars on the windows. The goal here is not to kill them with kindness, its to get info out of them. And Islamists see kindness as weakness, that is why many of us don't have compassion on them.

    No excuse for murder. Apparantly this guy was out for getting laid (sadly military types are known for this...), probably got upset that she wasn't really a "she" and went berserk. While I'm glad this guy is getting tried in the country he commited homicide in, transgender individuals absolutely have to be honest with their situation and let others know before "getting involved". Otherwise its straight up plain deceptive practice and terrible things like this end up happening to them.

    Every situation like this is exactly the same from what I've seen and it's all because they didn't let the person who was interested in them know well ahead of time.

    I'm still at a loss why Russia after disbanding the USSR never joined NATO. Instead they decided to go the lone wolf route. It's a shame... Coulda been buddies for life and their own bases around the area, but NOOO.

    No hope there until the people realize that enough is enough. Can't change those that don't try to change themselves.

    The world of ideology vs the world of reality. The battle continues. Very few people here can comprehend the responsibilities of having to quite literally be in charge of the defense and security of a nation unless they're actually in a position where they are quite literally in charge of the defense and security of a nation....

    Is torture wrong? Yes, but so is war, starvation, poverty, etc.... But it still happens every day.

    So many are too busy whining here none of them are actually offering alternatives. So here is my alternative suggestion. Create a mind reading machine, connect it to read the brain waves of suspects, deprive them of sight and sound, and just start asking questions and see what the machine picks up. Oh, is that ideal too far out there? well its the only way to get necessary information without using any kind of "advanced" interrogation techniques. Until then people can keep on dreaming until it becomes a reality.

    They should have done this under "animal cruelty" not "Chimps are people too!"
    But if the owner is meeting the state requirements to care for the chimp and giving it adequate shelter, food and socialization then the animal rights activists can stuff it.

    Sigh, I can't say enough about Japan's censorship laws. They're vastly outdated and downright stupid.

    Bah, its just that retail store. Aussie fans will just buy it from a different outlet. While I can understand the offense to those formerly forced into sex slavery, this is still a fictional game. This game "encourages" real life violence against women just about as much as it "encourages" organized crime activity, car jackings, and murder. Easily impressionable idiots and mentally disturbed people are the only ones who would believe what's done in a fictional game is what should be done in real life. As I've said, people that can't draw the line between reality and fiction are the ones people should be afraid of.

    Now this was a wrongful death. And is a blatant case of excessive force in a much more clear cut case than Ferguson.
