I am not blaming the Americas just wondering where the helps is.
Why should Europe take the brunt, when both gullf wars were started by the US, yes I served ans saw the conditions first hand.
Again why should the Europeans take the majority of the refugees and Migrants for something me are only partially responsible.
The USA can take a LOT more refugees that Europe( we are a collection of countries and not one entity like theUS).

Yadda, yaddda. Europe has centuries/millenia of refugees/Migrants.
And the people we upset didn't have to cross an Ocean.
Very different situation, you never had to beat 2 turkish invasions, fight Prussians, etc.
No comparison. Sorry mate.

Of course terrorists amd criminals(drug, white slavery, etc ) will also enter.
Vienna just boosted their police force from 2.600 to 3.600 and the population is less than 2 mill.
Rest of Austrian police and military forces are also boosted, glad I am too old to get called up.Saw enough action, etc.

BS I say.
Europe was always a destination for Migrants may the come from behind the Iron Curtain, Africa, China or the recent wave from Syria.
Anyone recall the 55 Chinese that died in a truck in England?
We would love to help all of them but housing, food, jobs, etc are a major drain on our economies (which are not that great right now), those are our taxes.
How many countries from the Americas offered to help?

Neither has to take their job if there are things that make uncomfortable.
Not going back on my previous statement but if job conditions change look somewhere else or find a work around.
All in all it is a job with rules and conditions, she could be asked to be reassigned.

Marriage certificates should be filled at the City Hall and not by priests, rabbi, whatever.
It"S MESep. 09, 2015 - 12:00PM JST
I say YES, but only on local(city, ward, etc) election we pay our taxes there and should have a voice.
For National elections I say a firm NO, those should be for citizens only.

Osprey will still be cheaper than the aging Ch-46 and CH-47 who got half the range lower speed and need more maintenance due to their age.
Japanese might decide to employ seahawks/blackhawks who are newer and can fulfill more roles than the aging Chinooks.

Drills even military are boring and staged and thus far from the real situation.
Recall 3/11 had my bag and my sons ready to meet him, school called and said he will walk home in a group = no worry.
As for military drills did my fair share as does every male in my country.
Will be an Eye-opener for my son when he gets called up.

The community planning exists I live less than 10 minutes walk from 2 evacuation Areas, plus all schools also double as ones.
Just need to inform yourself, all schools and most parks double as evacuation areas but they still rely on your provisions for the initial days.
I even got sleeping bags in our kits and more.
The locals are prepared for the most part, you always get the odd one.

We had many species, but when they became sick or aged we gave them the easiest farewell.
Yes many were pets and familie members, granted hard to bond with Tarantula, Turtles, Snakes, etc. But I still think there was some form of connection.

Toshiko it is an expenditure vs long term income calculation.
Don't work for Japan or any other developed nation, as the return won't even cover the cost.
Great for developing nations, developed nations not so.

There are many Halaal restaurant's in Japan, it was a simple oversight and if he left the bacon bits = no problem.
This is not an Islamic country and mishaps do occur no need to go on a hunger strike.
He could have complained and been served a different meal.
Still not news worthy.

Obama is gone after his term.
So all this speculations about his successor are mute, personally don't see Kayne.
What many people forget is 1yr to settle in, 2 yrs working, 1yr to campaign for re-election or to leave in 2nd term.
Same overseas we elect them for 4 yrs but they only truly work for 2 yrs.

Sure on that but do they male the forecast profits and do those benefit the country or only the local wards?

IMHO, the olympics can be held anywhere as the majority of people watch them on TV, etc.
The times when people travelled to see them live is coming to an end, hence why few recent hosting nations made a profit.
Was/is different nations where hosting them can be an economic boost, my own nation saw the benefit in 1972 but no more.
Biggest problem you can put on a great show for 2 weeks + Paralympics and after that the facilities are unused.
Hence why most recent countries called a loss after hosting them.
Many other places also say no. Look at the last winter Olympics in Japan and see how much those facilities cost, cost would be more if operated.

Since I am not Japanese I can't justify their actions. All countries copying to a certain degree but China, Korea and Thailand don't really enforce existing copyrights.
And thus many companies pulled out of them. I have a specific hobby and 95% of the pirated goods come from China, Korea, HongnKong and Thailand.
I can name some companies that do well worldwide selling pirated goods.
