It's confirmed, Obama just announced the death of OBL. Good riddance.

Bin Laden, who was in cahoots with the Taliban, was too young to die a natural death. I wonder if he was murdered.

"The Russian Foreign Ministry on Sunday accused NATO of a "disproportionate use of force"
Well, shucks, have to do something about Gadhafi's disproportionate use of force that has killed thousands of people.

If I were Gadhafi right now, I'd be thinking of a way to save my own skin.

Elephants may be a vampire-free drama, but Pattinson here still looks like a vampire.

"Kim Yu-na will donate all of her silver prize money to the Japanese quake victims"
My respect for her just went up a notch.
"Miki was looking at Kim, smirking"
She was not smirking.
Actually, Kim may have cried even if she won the gold medal, sometimes the pressure and excitement of competitions is a bit overwhelming.

It's a shame that 3 kids under 12 were killed, but Gadhafi is entirely to blame, the target house was also a command-and-control center.

"Miki's facial expression... looks more like a smirk"
It does not. Miki never smirks. She's not smiling here because Yu-na's crying is making her uncomfortable.
Yu-na's crying because she knows what she faces when she returns home after her failure to beat this Japanese woman.

Abduction? The guy led her 30 meters from a road to a tree in plain sight. Is that abduction?

"Why do we have to have the US military on this island anywhere?"
You prefer the Russian, Chinese or North Korean miitary?
"The majority of Okinawans want the bases OFF the island."
But the majority of Japanese don't. Anyway, the rights of minorities must be protected, and the thousands of Okinawans, though in the minority, who are working on the bases, don't.

"Police said that there were no problems or irregularities during their questioning and that Okukuni's personal safety was not put at risk."
That means he wasn't beaten during the questioning.

No one can beat Queen Yu-na, she has the judges wrapped around her little finger.
Miki will have to settle for 2nd place.

Great story! I couldn't help but do a quick calculation - when he was 28, she was only 14! I guess it's better that they met last month!

Could Donald Trump conceivably fire Barack Obama?
Incredibly, a Newsweek poll has the bombastic Trump barely trailing Obama 43-41.
