Who take responsible for drown of 300 peoples at sea?
If human right advocates and UN do not encourage them to risk their lives at sea and then they will be still alive in their own countries.
How many so called refugees’ boats need to sink at sea before human right advocates, UNHCR and EU Human Right Commissioner accept their part of responsibility in refugees drowning at sea? Also those peoples’ life won’t be easy when the arrived in Italy or other European nations because they can not find job and accommodation as what they were promised by human traffickers. They will become destitute in new land instead of happy and healthy human being.

Sadly Australian politic was manipulated and controlling by left wing media like ABC and Fairfax. These left wing Medias and Union always want Labor Government in Canberra. The problem with Labor is it doesn’t have right and talented peoples to govern Australia.
They are talkers and over promised but under delivery also big spender.
Tony Abbott does not have charming personality like Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard but he is 1000 time qualified for PM Job than those two labor jokers. Abbott Government has stopped the boats which costs over 11 billions dollars and still counting for Australia tax payers. Labor had never really save Australia from recession but Australian peoples were left with over $ 450 Billions debt. Abbott Government has trying to fix Labor debt but ABC doesn’t like it because ABC was one of victims of budget cut by Government. Also ABC thinks one day Coalition will sale off ABC or merger with SBS. So ABC is attacking Tony Abbot from day one he becoming PM.
If we think the person who has charming personality, popular and sweet talk and then we should ask Hugh Jackman for PM of Australia.
Tony Abbot given Knight of the Order of Australia to Prince Philip was not big deal because other Commonwealth nations have given various kinds of honor to Prince Philip.
It doesn’t cost any cent for given Knight to Prince Philip. I do understand some peoples do not like Prince Philip and also they do not like Tony Abbott personality too. Unfortunately, the Prince Philip’s Knighthood becoming weapon for left wing medias to attack Tony Abbott.
The important thing for PM of Australia is performance of his PM job. Tony Abbot is doing his job better than previous Labor Government in difficult circumstance. We have voted and choose Tony Abbot as Coalition leader in last election and we don’t want PM change in Canberra. ABC, Fairfax and left wing Medias should be stop breaking unity between Coalition Government and let Tony Abbott fair go.
Any MPs who afraid of losing their seat and then they should quit politic because they are self serving politician and they are useless for Australian peoples and nation.

It doesn't matter whether the Muslims upset or not upset they are same. They want to kill infidels anyway. There's no medicine to cure those Muslim extremists and they do not have tolerate with insulting Allah and Islam region. Western politic is too corrupted and too late to prevent crash between Freedom and Islam religion. Majority of politicians are still telling their citizens Multiculturalism is doing well but it's bull-shit. Only society has to swallow bitter pills and worrying about their welfare day and night. Politicians are smiling and pretending for votes from Muslims voters. In the end, their citizens have to pay the price for politicians' madness. Japan must learn from Western European nation's Multiculturalism problem.

Everyone wants to think it's inside job. Think about employees, Japan is not the same as 20 years ago anymore. It's sad. The economy of country is no where to go and some peoples have sorting out their problem in easy ways.
There's no moral conscience for today young Japanese and they lost transition between modern Japan and old Japan. It's really sad.

Sony and other movie producers need to learn from "The Interview" saga. I don't understand why peoples at Sony allow to produce such as low grade film. I don't think Sony will get back its investment from "The Interview" even with huge publicity. Sony must sack those peoples who have allowed to make that kind of bad film.

HighLama ### If you learn true history about India, Assam (Ahom Kingdom), Chittagon, Chittagong Hill Tracts, Arakan and Burma before East India Company colonized the whole region. British East India Company rule the whole region from India but any Raja from India didn't rule any piece of land in Assam, Rakhine, Burma, Malaysia and Indonesia.
Which India are you talking about?
I’m talking about India before British colonizing Burma and India and what had happened after British Colony Government had left its colony.
What exactly is "Indian ethic"? Isn't India comprised of many different ethnicity with several hundred distinct languages?
I’m not talk about how many Languages in today India. If Burma was still ruled from India and then you can count Burmese language as one of language use in India but other Indian and sub Indians languages are not literally connections with Burmese language.
You can understand it if you follow old true India history and not corrupted one. Tai, Bodo, Naga and other native Assamese languages are literally not connection with other India languages. They are Tibeto – Burman race. I don’t know how to explain in intelligent way to you. These peoples’ culture, tradition, languages and religion are difference from main stream Indian ethnics except Ahom King converted to Hindi religion but God can’t changed his ethnic identity. Majority of Tai peoples are Buddhist.
Assam was Ahom Kingdom. Ahom ethnic is Tai ethnic. There were other Tai peoples who were living under difference ethnic name in Ahom Kingdom. I think these Tai peoples name their ethnic identity on the region where they settled. For example, Tai Khamti peoples first settled in Khamti region in Burma and later some of them migrated into Ahom Kingdom (Assam). If you want to know what is Tai ethnic and then you can get information on Internet. Sham, Khamti, Laos, Thais are Tai ethnic and they all speak basic Tai language. Literally they can communicate in Tai language even thought they were settled in difference region.
Only India got Assam as gift from British Colony Government under Yadaboo Treaty which was treaty between Burmese King and British Army signed on 1826. You need to check first Anglo – Burma War history for why war was happened between Burma and English.
British had no right to divided and gave away Assam and Chittagong Hill Tracts under Yadaboo Treaty. Burmese King had surrendered Assam, Rakhine and other states to British Empire but it does not mean British can give away these states to other Country.
British had only two choices one is given back to Burma as Yadaboo Treaty or given independent to Assam and Chittagong Hill Tracts. I believe if British had formed Chittagong Hill Tracts and Assam as one state and given Independent will be better for the whole region.
History you can’t turn back now but Government need to fix problems in this region. Otherwise, the war between Bodo, Naga and India Government will never end and bloodsheds are more to come. Killing innocent peoples won’t be achieved anything and also oppressing and broken Native peoples right won’t be getting peace either in Assam.
British as former benifitor of this region, British Government has morally obligated for welfare of Native peoples of Assam and other states. The British do as what Japanese Government was doing in its former Colony. I don’t want to talk about Communist Chinese and S. Korean Government because they are playing politic and hiding Japanese Aid from their citizens.

It's another tragedy in Assam state. There's no doubt about native peoples of Assam were pushing out of their land by settlers from Bangladesh and India. Actually Assam was not belonging to India. British Colony Government had rewarded to India for its loyal service to British Empire. We must look back how India got Assam and other states from British as gift. Government in London dislikes Burma because Burmese Army was fight against British Colony Government with help from Royal Japanese Military in the war. After the WWWII and when British leave India was favor over Burma and British had given most of territories which were taken from Burma in first Anglo – Burma War.
British had given India most of lands except Taninthayi and Rakhine but Chitagong Hill Tracts from Rakhine was given to East Pakistan for to create new Muslim country.
**According to the Yadaboo treaty, the Burmese agreed to (1) cede to the British Assam, Manipur, Rakhine (Arakan), and Taninthayi (Tenasserim) coast south of Salween river, (2) cease all interference in Cachar and Jaintia, (3) pay an indemnity of one million pounds sterling in four installments, (4) allow for an exchange of diplomatic representatives between Ava and Calcutta, and (5) sign a commercial treaty in due course.
In Assam, Some of native tribes are already extinct and some tribes are nearly extinct. Native tribe like Naga and Bodo are fighting for independent from India.
Also native peoples of Chittagong Hill Tracts have lost their land to settlers from Bangladeshi. Peoples from Marma, Rakhine, Chakma and other tribes were fleeing to Rakhine state in Burma.
British Government has moral responsible for those native peoples survival in its former colony. Indian Government and Bangladeshi Government are encouraging their peoples to mass migrate into tribal area.
Assam king had converted to Hindi religion but they were not Indian ethnic and they have their own language. They are close relative of ethnics from Burma and some living in both sides. The whole region were Indianized during British colony ruled and some have lost their language, culture, tradition and ethnic identity as well.
Now it’s time for British Government to involve in peace dialogue between native peoples and Governments in Assam and other regions which were not historically belonging to India or Bangladesh. All Government should be respected and protected right of native peoples. Currently those native peoples of Assam and Chittagong Tracts are losing their voice for help from UN and International Governments. I believe British Government has morally responsible for native peoples from its former Colony lands.

I wish the Australian Government will let Muslim jihadists go if they want to join ISIS in Syria. We shouldn't keep those Islamist extremists in Australia. It’s security risk to daily life of Australian peoples.
Government must tell their parents they are responsible for their children activity.
Majority of Muslim criticize Government for canceling Passport and raiding on Muslim homes.
What Government supposes to do about home grow terrorists threatening to Australian peoples?
Now parent of one jihadist who died in Syria fighting alongside with ISIS want to sue Government for their son death. It’s nonsense.
I only heard strongly condemnation to Islamist extremist and against ISIS from Dr. Jamal Rifi. Other Muslim community leaders are not eager to criticize against ISIS.
Police has right to raid and arrest peoples who are planning to attack on Australian peoples.
