Genius. Similar to giving arms to Syrians while bombing therm. Arming Saudis while they support ISIS. Having all the arms they gave to Iraq abandoned to ISIS. "Training" the Afghan and Iraqi armies (which has gone really well - look how they have the Islamists on the run).

Tragic. Frankly not sure she had such a bad life (compared to billions on the breadlines or in war zones or whatever) and not sure all this can be blamed on drug dealers. how about invasive reporting? Inability to live private life. Price of fame? and sure plenty of other things that bugged her and her mother that we just don't know about....

I surmise there will be all sorts of financial skullduggery on this bid, from both sides.

Seems perfectly normakl to me to end up atr someone's aprtment on a first date. Far less normal is ending up dead on a first date. don't have stats to hand but i would be pretty sure that there is far less liklihood of someone getting robbed or raped or murdered here than in many other "ciivilised" countries. Uk and US for two.....

China can really be thin-skinned, which is silly but also dangerous when notn applied to somke lame movie but to territorial disputes and the like. Adam Sandler movies deserve to be cut far more than they are.....

NATO will send a couple of spy planes or drones and that's it. All of this barbarity and horror and destruction (partly caused by NATO meddling in the first place) and their "assistance" consists of some light bombing and weaponry and nothing more.

what is "Western" reporting of the news? Is the "reporting" in (say) the Daily Mirro or The Sun the same as (say) the Guardian or the FT? what about (say) an Italian paper vs a (say) Russian one? as for news on TV, that is even more diverse as to how it is reported......
Japanese news reportin in general is pretty factual, often banal, sometimes clearly biased in some way and very often dumbed down by stupid whiteboards and diagrams, stickers and models and squeaky reporters.....
