"Interesting, seeing as that's not a crime he was actually charged with. So I'm curious as to why you think he should have received punishment for a crime he wasn't get charged nor convicted for."
Then, heck, let's just let the dude go, he hasn't done anything wrong, lol.

“Russia cannot ignore calls for help and it acts accordingly, in full compliance with international law,” he said.\
This would be funny if it wasn't causing so much trouble and it didn't havd the potential to cause a whole lot more trouble and misery.

It's happoshu. Not quite beer since it's low-malt, but way better than any of the dai-san/3rd category crap.
But this 70% off carbs, 4.5% alcohol Green Label version of Kirin Tanrei is nowhere near as good as regular 5.5% alcohol Tanrei.

"hijack a plane at Haneda airport and fly it into Tokyo Skytree"
Skytree is a lot smaller target than the WTC, the jerk would have had to be a really good pilot.
"Don't know what kind of people this guy's parents are, but someone screwed up in bringing this nutter up."
They are quite possibly a very nice couple who can't help if their son is a nutter.

"Crimea wants to be part of Russia, so be it."
That would be the majority of the Russian citizens in the part of Ukraine known as Crimea want to be part of Russia.
It's like Quebec wants to be independent of Canada or Scotland wants to be independent of the U.K.
The rest of Canada and the U.K. voted no.
