    Homegrown competitor MOS Burger has been offering local–and kind of sweet–delivery for a while now

    So, you imply that MOS doing it is alright, but big bad McDs annoys you? Although, waiting the half an hour that it takes for MOS to make a simple burger would be so better spent at home than in one of their bland stores.

    But before this menu reaches its ultimate destination of the brown paper bag my wife and I keep by the kitchen bin for paper recyclables

    Oooh, recyclables! Squeee!

    We begin with the seasonal burgers, namely popular “wobbly egg” Tsukimi Burger (in photo, left), artery-choking Chicken Cheese Tsukimi (centre), and new Kinoko Tsukimi, which features a helping of mushrooms.

    We get it. You're a food nazi who thinks that anything Mcdonalds sells is a death sentence. Well done.

    Their delivery is pretty good. I've used it a few times. I know it's not healthy, but it's good every now and again.

    No.

    I'd rather have a country with a real military making decisions. Not a bunch of boy scouts with delusions of grandeur.

    Burittos served in the restaurant are smaller and cheaper (750 yen) than ordinary burritos.

    Of course they are small. I wouldn't say they are value for money. I'd rather pay 1000yen for a real burrito.

    A Japanese burrito, Teriyaki-Chicken burrito, is also available as well as a sweet burrito which has tiramisu in it (photo below).

    Sounds revolting. Why do they always have to make gimicky crap?

    He read a three-page letter in court asking for mercy which cited biblical verses from St. Paul on faith, hope, and love.

    Cherry picking a-hole. If he loves the Bible so much, he must have forgotten:

    Exodus 21:12 "Whoever strikes a man so that he dies shall be put to death."

    and

    Leviticus 24:17 "Anyone who takes the life of a human being is to be put to death."

    Don't thank me Probie or admit your error. Instead, change the subject and put words in my mouth.

    I don't have to thank you for anything, and I made no error.

    Goal post moved. We were talking about the threat to the west.

    De-stabilizing the ME leads to danger in the West.

    But if all IS militants drop dead tomorrow, guess what? The civil war continues and innocents still die at the hands of the other groups.

    The scale is different.

    The point (sigh) was the threat to the west. The Assad regime, the moderate militants, etc. can and will keep fighting them.

    Once a country expands its borders and takes over more land, gains more followers, you never know what is going to happen. With the amount of money they have, buying nuclear or biological weapons and using them on targets in the west, or certainly Israel, is highly likely.

    There is little guarantee or proof that meddling will save any innocent lives.

    I send that back to you. There is little guarantee or proof that meddling will not save any innocent lives.

    Are you accusing IS of genocide? Did not move the goal post enough earlier?

    Yes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persecution_of_Yazidis_by_the_Islamic_State

    *Reported atrocities by Islamic State (IS) in Iraq

    At least 1,000 members of the Yazidi faith are thought to have been killed in recent weeks, with close to 2,750 kidnapped or enslaved

    12 June - Following an IS attack on an Iraqi air force base near the city of Tikrit, more than 1,500 young soldiers went missing; many bodies were subsequently found in the Dijla River

    2 July - IS fighters entered the village of Omar Khan in the Nimrod area of Nineveh province, looking for Shabak people, many of them Shia; they kidnapped some 40 Shabak and Turkmen

    7 July - IS stormed the village of al-Rashidiya in Mosul, and abducted 40 Turkmen; some were killed

    10 July - At least 650 male inmates of Badouch Prison in Mosul were murdered by IS; witnesses say inmates claiming to be Sunni were transported away, while Shia or members of other religious and ethnic communities were ordered into ditches and shot

    3 August - Dozens of men and boys were killed on the edge of the village of Qinyeh, south-east of Sinjar after a group of 300 or more Yazidis fleeing nearby Tal Qasab were caught by IS, survivors say

    15 August - The mainly Yazidi village of Cotcho, south of Sinjar, was attacked by IS fighters; survivors say at least 100 men were killed, and hundreds of women and children were abducted*

    Snow in winter is a greater threat to the west. Its undeniable fact. But you have to stick with the point to understand, and the point, the entire point of this thread, is about the threat to the west of IS.

    So is influenza. So what. You can't stop winter. We can stop IS.

    Also, the entire point of this thread is NOT the threat to the west of IS. It's the "threat to the global community from the Islamic State". By the "Global Community" I include the people being murdered by IS. It's the duty of the rest of us to stop that.

    Any country stepping in to stop scum like ISIS killing any more innocent people should not be a subject of debate. It should be applauded.

    I don't know where those people were killed. If it was in the Middle East, well that's no threat to America or Britain is it?

    So everyone should just let them continue? You're fine with genocide?

    And if it was in their home countries? More people die shoveling snow off their roofs in winter, so give me a break.

    Trying to be edgy and missing the real points. Well done.

    I'm with bass4funk on this.

    ISIS will kill more innocent people if they are left to run free than will die as collateral damage.

    They have killed three people, and you are advocating a war, with the above being the justification for said war. So it would appear that your biggest issue with them is that their religious affiliations scare you.

    They have not "killed 3 people". Have you seen how many they have killed?

    These are old numbers, but:

    Also search for "ISIS dock shooting" on Google and tell me that they are not barbaric scum.

    Just which terrorists are Japan dealing with?

    Any reasonable person would see I was talking about Israel there.

    Japan shouldn't get involved. It has nothing to do with them. Not even the collective defence argument works here, because no ally has been attacked. That man-child who was captured is going to be in the news again soon.

    Any coalition doesn't need weak links in it. No countries like Japan. Israel shouldn't get involved either. They have enough terrorists to deal with as it is.

    "All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are NOT fighting."

    Because the people who are fighting have more important things to think about. Don't forget that the propaganda comes from BOTH sides. The only side sending out propaganda in this case has been ISIS.

    At least Japan hasn't got involved in the US led campaign. My guess a ransom will be paid and he will be freed.

    Ransom should not be paid in situations like this. He was an idiot who shouldn't have been there. If Japan give them money, it'll be used to kill more people. Give them nothing, and lose 1 idiot who thought he was living in a movie.

    Japanese don't have a good survival record. Remember what happen to Saito Akihiko and Koda Shosei?

    If they have not killed these two American journalists, then what would have been the reaction of USA?

    Very ignorant comment there. The U.S. has been saying that they were going to stop ISIS way before the journalists were killed.

    May be true, but unfortunately, true "innovation" was in the form of the iPod, not MP3. And, by the way, MP3 technology was invented in German and the U.S.

    The iPod was only successful because of the legions if iSheep raving about it, just because it was another Apple product.

    Apple don't innovate. They repackage ideas and market them as new and revolutionary. They have a cult, and an unlimited supply of douchebag celebrities, like U2, to harp on about how amazing they are, even though they aren't. Anyone who thinks the iPod was innovative, either knows nothing about technology, or is fooling themselves and falling for the hype.

    Sony is far more innovative than Apple.
