Let people do what they want, they are breaking no laws.
Tired of people online that say this is fine and that is not based on their own likes and dislikes.

Climate change doesn't affect everyone equally.
As the earth warms up the warm streams in the ocean will change and thus no longer provide bentlery climatsy go frzncey, Britain, etc.
Also the weather is cyclic in a 50yr pattern.
Still don't explain my home-country has had the warmest year on record since 1735.

They train would gave hit them in the side, if the boy sat on the impact side a seatbelt would do little as the car was stopped.
But nice speculation based in non-supplied info, always amazes me how some posters know so much.

Well said looking at the history or many religions I see many violent stages and stages where religion tried to govern.

Happy with the current rice I just got at the shop, 10kg for 1.890Yen.
Now if Basmati or Jasmine rice was cheaper I would be happy.

Can we put this argument to rest.
Doesn't matter what other countries do or don't, in Japan the vaccination is voluntary and paid in cash.
None to tell you to take it or not, just recommendations.
I wish this epidemic was over as waiting time at the doctor has lengthened beyond fun.

Bit too much BF4?
JDAM is NOT a bomb itself put a guidance system attached to otherwise unguided Bombs.

Add in that Gainax also got hefty fines and back taxes after hiding millions USD of income after Evangelion.
Still today I like their animation for Daikon III and Daikon IV event opening animariom with the opening of 'Densha Otoko'.
Long history and they did produce a lot of cult anime.

Copycat of whom? Needles been found occasionally as far back as I can remember.
Glad I bake my own bread and happy they got the guy.
I think combini got the most CCTV per square metre anywhere, stupid to try anything there.

Didn't McD also recently run out of tatters due to a strike of USA workers.
Being a franchise unfortunately a lot of goods have to be ordered from franchise plants, not that easy to switch suppliers or use local produce.

I don' see radical Islam having a long-term future, in the end they will self destruct after infighting.
Case of too many groups, Al-Quaida and ISIS is already in opposition. Book Haram is too far away to care right now.
Anyway off to my local Curry Restaurant which is run by Indian Muslims.

I have many good Muslim friends and 2 Muslim family members(also Jewish, Christian, atheist, buddhist, etc).
They are just people like you and me, they have the same family, work, etc worries as us and want to live in peace with a steady job and income.
Hence why you have many refugees and immigrants moving other countries.

That is an ideological dispute, and considering that 23% if the world(Muslim population) us not trying to take over the world.
I go with the non-radical supporters.

Many Imam and Islamic scholars globally have said that All Quaida, Boko Harsm, ISIS, Taliban don't follow true Islam.
But what do they know being Muslim vs non-muslims posters online.. ;)
It"S MEJan. 23, 2015 - 05:26PM JST
The Iman at the Mosque(guess the one in Shinjuku), spoke on the news.
Denouncing ISIS as not following true Islam and wishes they were gone.
As for the prayer different people find comfort in different ways.
Myself don't worship any deity or hold some people(monks, etc) in higher regard as everybody has equal worth and potential.

Does anyone know where the Hostages are being and under what conditions?
Add in planning a rescue mission, getting the troops in position without losing the element if surprise.
Real life military works different than what you see in movies, they don't just hop in a transport and go all hung ho and Roooaah.
Also don't forget that the current constition forbids armed action.
