    Organic food sounds nice, but I doubt very much it can be produced in suffient quantity to replace the current supply. At least Japan is free from the Monsanto nightmare of sterile seeds and "roundup"-drenched crops. Or am I too optimistic there?

    It is a good thing the neighbour called the cops and the cops came. That sort of intervention does not happen often enough here.

    " It's ISIS' dream, win or lose, to fight US troops on their own turf and kill as many Americans. That's why they keep provoking the US to send in troops. "

    Actually, no. You should get over that America-centric world view. Not everybody thinks about Americans every day.

    ISIS is very about what they want: Their Sunni Caliphate, initially encompassing all muslim Arab countries, and later ultimately the whole world. Of course they have to run into the Amerians sooner or later, but some military conflict with them is most certainly not the immediate and main issue.

    Burning Bush: Exactly.

    Well, that was quick. I expected they let her out soon, but not that soon.

    " The mentality that makes bulldozing ancient buildings admirable defies belief. Even the Prophet and succesor caliphs built beautiful buildings, no? "

    It is literal islam. Saudi Arabia is doing it (they are actuall pretty much finished with the job; hardly anything pre-islamic left), and our politcians kiss their behinds.

    And yes, the various caliphs ordered beautiful buildings to be built, but they too did not respect buildings built by prior infidels, especially if they contained images.

    A big thanks from ISIS in advance for the new weapons supply!

    (Repeating the same mistake over and over, expecting a different outcome, is one of the definitions of insanity.)

    The radical Sunni jihadis taking over Western Iraq and Syria, and Obama is STILL supporting them in his ill-advised campaign against the only guy who could stop them, namely Assad.

    Anybody who seriously believes that the "vetted freedom fighters" in Syria who Obama is assisting and training are simply another ISIS front should buy a bridge in Brooklyn.

    " his nation has 6,852 islands and 6,414 of them are uninhabited."

    I am wondering how many of those China is claiming?

    Well, there goes another world heritage site. It will be bulldozed in accordance with Wahabi islam. I hope the archeologists have good records of the site, that is all that will be left.

    Did you read the article? They are already in NK. The flew into PyongYang, with the blessing of the homocidal fat little dictator Kim Yong Un.

    Yes, great peace doves they are. Think they make any comments of the hundreds of thousands of North Koreans being brutalizd in the Kims concentration camps? Don´t hold your breath.

    Sure. It is indisputable that Obama and the UN need more taxes and more powers. That is why they are so adamant on the issue.

    " The United States said it is considering accelerating the training and equipping "

    More "training and equipping". Hasn´t Obama been "training and equipping" the same Iraqi armee whose equipment ISIS Is using now? Ridiculous.

    ISIS will be grateful for the new weaponry delivered by the US taxpayers.

    " Ostrich stance many liberals have WilliB. "

    Not so much Austrich stance, as ide fixe. Whatever is wrong, GWB incarnated did it. And the disastrous policy mistake of Obama & Hillary are somehow all in a giant blind spot.

    US party politicking is something to behold.

    I don´t know why people are complaining. The article is a bit flippish, but the psychological and physiological differences are actually known documented.

    " American foreign policy is basically "

    Alas, there is no consistent American foreign policy. Different governments have made their individual different decisions.... you are correct though that blundering seems a common theme.

    " There you are again peddling your FOX obfuscation points. "

    What is this Pavlovian reflex about saying "FOX" whenever someone contradicts your talking point? Does saying the magical word "Fox" somehow count as an argument among your friends? Fwiw, I understand "Fox" is the only conservative American news network among, but also fwiw, I am not watching US TV .

    " The Iraqi's themselves booted out US troops under a deal signed with Bush. Only a fool would blame Obama for the mess he inherited from the Republican Party. "

    Firstly, neither Obama nor other presidents have every observed signed deals very much. Secondly, the ISIS takover of Libya and Syria (the origin of ISIS) happened under Obama and is a direct result of Obamas policy. Bush did NOT bomb Gaddafi out of existance and did NOT help assist the Sunni Jihadis in Syria.

    Can you finally overcome this robotic "blame Bush" reflex? It is really getting ridiculous.

    Of course, it will. If he is killed by infidels during the course of his jihad, he is a martyr by definition. However, for our socities that is vastly preferrable than sheltering and feeding him for the rest of his long life at taxpayers expense and allowing him to prosyletyse lots of new jihadis. However, that is precisely what we can expect.

    " Thank you Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld for this and for so much more . . . what a total disaster. "

    Newsflash for you: It was Obama who helped to install ISIS in Libya and Syria, and not your favourite talking point villain. And Syria is the main stronghold of ISIS.

    Well, obviously, human pilots are not technically needed any more, as is proven by all those drones out there. However, I don´t see how the public would accept a pilot-less jumbo jet at this moment. This will eventually happen, but it will take a long time.
