    Honestly. the population of idiots is increasing faster than anyone can handle. Bad and stupid tourists only make any country look bad and instigate stereotypes and prejudice against others of the same nationality.

    Can always rely on Texas for pure 'murican paytree-utism with a complete and utter lack of wisdom. While I do believe Chris Kyle did his job as a soldier, there are many hundreds of thousands of others that do the exact same thing.

    Selfish old rich white men. The face of the Republican party. I bet you even old Teddy Roosevelt is turning in his grave with rage.

    Either way, this should instill some more growth in reality and responsibility for Japanese political society when it comes to playing on the global field. When someone starts playing the tango you don't start doing a waltz.

    All female lead cast for Ghostbusters? While I do like female leads, I think it should have been much more mixed team... I would have liked a Female Egon (Eyona) Spindler, And the other 2 male, and another female to be on the team.

    Please don't ruin Ghostbusters in a remake. Any remake has to be as good as if not better than the original. The remakes of Total Recall, and Robocop really sucked.

    Eight comments and seven are from Russia haters who obviously do not even know why they hate Russia so much.

    Get over yourselves. I like Russia as much as I like China. No hate at all, just pity. Great countries with a lot of potential that is being squandered by their government leaders own personal arrogance.

    What I can't understand is Russia's completely irrational fear of NATO, that someday they might "invade" or something? NATO would rather focus on other important issues and colonization/imperialism has been out for quite a long time and frowned upon in the modern world.

    A cease-fire deal signed in September by representatives of the government and the insurgents included some of those provisions along with a pledge to withdraw foreign fighters and place OSCE monitors on the Russian-Ukrainian border, but it has been violated by both parties and fighting has continued.

    Then there is this. Ukraine is wasting money and lives, and the "Rebels" are wasting money and lives. Utter lack of diplomacy on both sides. They both need to stop shooting at each other. It may result in another "great wall of Berlin" or "North and South Korea" to coin the term (but that seems to be another old USSR custom) until it's figured out that it just doesn't work.

    @Sensenotsocommon. Actions speak louder than words. And the actions the multiple Islamist groups and their supporters in the muslim community have pretty much wiped out any real trust that Islam has any shred of peace for anyone. Plus, if you had any idea of the historical facts of Mohammed, it should sink in that the religion itself is in desperate need of severe and excessive reformation which can only come from within.

    People need to understand that the Islamists aren't fighting to protect anything, they're fighting to dictate and enforce their beliefs the lives of others. The Kurds are fighting to protect their lives, their families, and their children from being massacred.

    An Arab-American civil rights organization has asked “American Sniper” director Clint Eastwood and actor Bradley Cooper to denounce hateful language directed at U.S. Arabs and Muslims after the release of the film about a Navy marksman.

    Uh, don't take the bait on this one folks. Once again they're trying to distract and blur the lines between Arabic ethnicity and Islamic religion. There is such a thing as Arab Christians/Athiests/Agnostics etc.
    Arabs shouldn't have to worry about their ethnicity. Nobody can tell if a person is Muslim by just looking at them (unless of course they're in religious dictated garb).

    It is a smart choice. I think the only time Japan should take this kind of action is if an attack happened on their soil, and I hope that will never happen. France, Canada, UK, Australia etc have had terrorist attacks on their soil so its pretty much a given.

    A testament to the cruelty and evil that humankind is capable of. Never forget, although it appears a lot of folks already have and these situations are happening again.

    Prasetyo said there is no excuse for drug dealing and that he hopes the executions will have a deterrent effect.

    Apparantly its not deterring anything. Which leads me to the conclusion that the real drug traffickers and power behind the smuggling are just using random people who travel through the country and just happen to sneak stuff into luggage before people even arrive in the country.

    I'm pretty sure there are more than enough people from outside Indonesia that know good and well not to allow anyone you don't know near your luggage, or carry something through for another person. How stupid does one have to be to be caught with narcotics there?

    Aside from that, Indonesia does need to learn to be more merciful in their justice system depending on the extent of involvement in a crime. Just saying, "death" all the time only shows how little time they take to actually thoroughly investigate drug cases and get to the actual ring-leader.

    I think the perception that the democrats have of "spreading the wealth" is wrong. The issue is that the people who have been the 1% wealth have been encouraging and quite literally instigating "laws" that help them to make more money regardless of how they get it and also effectively limiting the opportunities of those with much lower incomes than theirs. That is exactly how the Middle class sector of US society (and even some of those with low-wealth millionaires) found themselves struggling to survive looking for work or maintain a business.

    From personal experience and those around me, the crash of the economy happened because of the US Republican legislation for their "trickle down theory" just showed what people with money are willing to do to make more money even though they have more than enough to be satisfied. Its just plain excessive greed in an attempt to continue living their lives lavishly.

    Even though the state I live in has recovered quite well and more businesses are hiring and looking for employees, the wages have still remained the same while prices for many other items and services has gone up.

    Sigh, once again we have to tell the officials Islam is not a "race" it's not an "ethnicity" its a political/religious "belief" system that can definitely be protested against and criticized intellectually.

    I've had enough of Clinton's and Bushs in the White House. There are many other candidates to choose from on both sides.

    I'm hoping that France will have very little problem identifying those with extremist ideals. It's both good and bad that nobody has come up with a "mind reading" machine yet to make it easier to identify those sympathetic to Islamist ideology.

    Japan's issue is they want to whitewash their own text books. That absolutely needs to stop period. If Japanese politicians had enough sense to stop denying Japan's role in the past and openly acknowledge that the leaders of the past made very bad choices China and Korea wouldn't have anything to stand on period. But this is Japan, it appears they will never "grow up" and all three will continue with these tantrums.

    Not that China has much to go on in its own little "manifest destiny" quest of expand and conquer.

    Its got nothing to do with them being white Christians, it has everything to do with corrupt government systems. Many Afrikaan nations have democratically elected political leaders that only try to talk the talk but can't or won't even try to walk the walk. Its a façade that always ends in failure. Considering the resources that these nations probably have but have never been put to good use because many of the societies are still stuck in tribal systems and warfare. Decades and centuries of exploitation by western nations (and now eastern nations) hasn't helped them get much better at improving their nations.

    Nigeria, and many other countries on the African continent need political leaders who know what they need to do and can do it.

    Sad way to go, but I'm guessing if it wasn't intentional death it was because the brewer thought that crocodile bile would give some kick to their craft beer. I can see it throwing off the human digestive system by screwing up one's Ph balance and causing death depending on the acidity of the crocs digestive system. Nasty way to go.

    I do agree that Pakistan can not dictate North America , Europe or any other state(whether Islamic or not). But (dont you think) same goes for Europe and America. For Example: They should also stop putting their noses in Pakistan`s business.

    There is a saying here in the US, "If you don't want me in your business, then don't make your problems my problem" When the US was able to find OBL in Pakistani borders as well as border hoppers from Afghanistan it showed just how bad Pakistans security with Afghanistan really was, because they were too busy keeping their eyes on India. It goes back much further than that, but I could go on forever about what led to what etc. that caused the US and western countries to become involved further beyond their own borders.

    Freedom of speech and freedom of expression should never be questioned in this type of situation. The man made an offensive depiction of a religious figure, and some extremists think it is worth killing people over it.

    Religion should and will always be subject to criticism. Claiming that a religion should never be criticized means that religion has no way to truly defend itself for it's beliefs because it demands silence to questions and expects blind faith and loyalty from it's followers.

    Another most contradictory problem for Islam mainly being over them saying how any depiction of Mohammed would be equal to idolatry, and yet elevating him to a divine status that his image must never be depicted at all because it is so holy....which is idolatry of a single human being.

    Keep in mind that in many Islamic nations, there is such a thing as a blasphemy law. If you look into why such a thing exists and how it is used, you would understand very clearly that freedom of speech/expression should never be subject to such restrictions.
