    Currently the US and Japan seem in some kind of honeymoon.

    After taking their second vows. The first was a shot-gun wedding. Now, we are meeting much more as equals, and I am very happy about that.

    I love the Japanese people. They have all the foibles and greatness of humanity. And I think it high-time for Japan and the Us to come together on a much more equal footing.

    In the US and UK common law, he may have been found guilty of depraved-heart murder, or second degree murder. Depraved-heart is when if the defendant commits an act of gross recklessness.

    If the facts are as alleged, then, yeah, he committed depraved heart murder.

    Uhm, in Operation Tomodachi US Forces delivered 189 tons of food, 2 million gallons of water, and 87 tons of additional relief materials during response operations.

    Source: Japan Ministry of Defense White Paper Special Feature, Response to the Great East Japan Earthquake. (Appendix 1).

    Conclusion (and I quote): "The fact that US servicemen and assets were located on or adjacent to recovery operations saved an incalculable number of lives and expedited recovery operations."

    So, yeah, I guess the Japanese government thinks " IF it wasn't [sic] for America and Operation Tomodachi many Japanese would have died."

    Two interesting related aspects to Sugihara's story:

    First, he was not murdered or imprisoned for his rebellion. To be sure, he became a persona non grata, but he was allowed back into Japan, and even pursued a new career. His punishment was, in effect, ostracism.

    Second, considering the first, where were all the other potential Sugiharas....? Just as, where were all the emmigres?

    A hug, when on American soil, is perfectly acceptable.

    Not for every one. Not me. I hug my family and a few, very old friends.

    And, of course, Calgary Cruz is a typical Republican after all: no honor; no shame.

    Headline: Ted Cruz to sign up for Obama Care.

    See, ISIS actually thinks this is good publicity for them. Which it is. Because they appeal to madman and barbarians.

    They can't help but be barbaric. And barbarians are stupid.

    And that is why we civilized peoples will destroy them.

    The White House on Wednesday scolded Netanyahu following for 1) abandoning his commitment to negotiate for a Palestinian state and 2) for “divisive” campaign rhetoric toward Israel’s minority Arab voters.

    1) Netanyahu's promise of No Palestine goes against official US policy. As such, the White House acts appropriately, and those here who support Net are, once again, siding with a foreign leader against the United States.

    This is getting treasonous.

    2) The rhetoric wasn't "divisive.' It was bigoted. Israeli Arabs are 100% Israeli. End of story.

    This is the story of the modern state of Israel in about 20 seconds, like it or not.

    No, that is the story of anti-Zionist propaganda. In 20 seconds.

    Like it or not, Israel exists. Get used to it.

    Kokang’s rebel Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army is led by shadowy octogenarian commander Phone Kya Shin.

    And only one man can change that.

    Bond. James Bond.

    Uhm, the violent break between Hamas in Gaza and the P.A. in the West Bank settled that years ago.

    God made Adam & Eve.

    Well, if you're gonna go Hebrew Bible -- or Old Testament -- on us, you might as well get it right and support polygamy.

    Oh, what was that? You don't agree with polygamy?

    So, I guess you're telling us you only quote the Bible when it suits your convenience....

    Treason is treason

    Look, as much as I appreciate the desire to hoist the chicken hawk Republican poser bullies on their own petard.

    And as much as I appreciate playing hardball.

    It wasn't treason.

    It was politically inept and diplomatically stupid. But not treason.

    There will be no reunification so long as the US remains in South Korea.

    And that is a decision that belongs primarily with the people of South Korea. Not Steinhem.

    Tea party may be on verge of becoming a 3rd party

    FThe "Tea Party" is just movement conservatism. Without movement conservatism, there is no Republican Party.

    Conservatism is broken., bad for America, and thankfully, dying out.

    Good riddance.
