    wtfjapan: The medical establishment used to believe in benefits of the procedure, that is so many Americans had it done. But the USers are always quick to snip; I also remember that for a while central lobotomy was carried out routinely, and later tonsils were removed as a precaution. In both cases, they now have backtracked. None of the medical doctors I know believes snipping the foreskin has benefits, to the contrary.

    DanielJP: "yep it is fashionable, looks much better".... err really? I am no fashion expert, but can´t we ask some ladies about that? That would be more believable than your vote.

    Has he ever apologized for, or even retracted, his statement that Salman Rushdie should be murdered?

    I hope people do not support this fundamentalist nutter.

    The way the IWC sessions are reported on Japanese TV are grating. Ever news is accompanied by remarks how whale is "traditional food" (which, funnily, nobody in my neighbourhood seems to eat), and inevitably followed by some visit to a whale serving restaurant, with the obligatoriy shouts of "oishii". Stupid! And I am not a Japan basher.

    I think the PC view, which "Kagemusha" listed in so many words, was summarized in two lines by "StormR":

    Anyone who could not see this coming 20 years ago must have been blind. Immigration / intergration of these people does not work , look at UK Belgium, france to see that. All the lovey, cuddley, nice n fluffy, hug em and they will love us back BS does not work and will never work.

    Exactly. Western societies has been going out of its way to embrace and accommodate, but in return, they only got hatred and demands for more. Just look at percentage muslims living in Western countries who want Shariah law. The numbers are mind-boggling.

    There is nothing unexpected about the plot. Islamic fundamentalists have beheaded people in Holland and in the UK already, and the activities of ISIS we have all seen recently.

    However, since in this case, the Aussi police acted proactively, they will have a hard time with a court case, because the crime was not committed. "Planning" a crime is hard to prove, and the ISIS sympathizers in jail will will use the lenient Western court system to the fullest. I predict they will get away with a slap on the wrist and proceed to plan the next attack.

    Western law enforcement is always behind the curve on this one.

    Kagemusha:

    Thanks for laying out the PC position with all its flaws. It is because out politicians and media have bought into all the false premises which you list up, that Western society is in this pickle.

    Afaic the irony is that if Scotland gets independence from the UK, they will then turn around to join the EU.... thus replacing a democratic and functional union with an undemocratic, Kafaesque monstrosity run by unelected megalomanic Eurocrats in Brussels. What an exchange!

    Yoshiki:

    " There are many arguments pro and con for circumcision. Profit and retail sales should have no business anywhere in any discussion... "

    No. Except for some very cases, there is no "pro" for circumcision. Ask a competent doctor, not a quack.

    Both male and female circumcision are performed only either to please some god or to make someone rich.

    " Insane! Its time that countries like OZ, Holland, UK and FRANCE, deny reentry by people who are fighting in Syria. No need for those people to return. "

    Dream on! If ISIS ever goes sour, the Jihadis with European passports will come back and be plonked right back into the welfare systems. If Western goverments actually try to do something about them, they will scream discrimination and islamophobia, and our do-goody-goody societies will cringe and apologize. Wait for it.

    commanteer:

    " ISIS was IS for a while, but now is ISIS again? IS my understanding correct? And what about Isis? I hate to see her name dragged through the mud. ISIS isn't Isis-like at all. "

    I think which name you choose depends partly on your political leaning. ISIS itself call themselves "IS" in their English PR, because of their global ambitions. The Obama government stick to the lesser-used "ISIL" because that avoids mentioning the "Syria", where they are now in the bizarre situation that they want to arm the people who fight the people who ISIS... go figure.

    The Arabs of course use a native name for the thing, and don´t care what acronym we use in English.

    Now lets wait for the politically correct crowd to manage to blame Western oppression for this.

    " [[Yukawa is listed on the website of Tokyo-based private military firm PMC as its chief executive.]] Play with fire and chances are you are going to get your fingers burnt....deal gone bad maybe? "

    There was no "deal". Reporters went to "PMC", and it is a mailbox in some ramshackle building. The guy just set it up as a name to impress his Otaku friends.

    The guy is pathetic, but don´t expect that the ISIS killers show sympathy.

    LOL, I can return that verbatim to you. You are the one who thinks this some kind of zero-sum game that you can solve with the the military and with ID-cards, right?

    McCain thinks he can solve any problem in the world by bombing it. The guy is as clueless about reality as Obama is. Why don´t these guys take the time to read up about the history and cultural background of the region? But maybe their entourage of sycophantic advisors prevents that.

    Two realistic options:

    1) The J-government bails him out with our taxpayer money (the French government paid 18 Million USD for one of theirs, although they officially deny it)

    2) He gets beheaded by Jihadi John or a similar character

    In case of 1) I surely hope he gets to work to pay back our money for the rest of his life.

    " He asked how U.S. forces would respond in the event Assad’s air force bombed the U.S.-trained forces. “We will help them, and we will support them,” Hagel eventually said. "

    Oh, the brilliance of this plan. So... Hagel wants to bomb a) ISIS and b) the Syrian troops who are fighting ISIS. While giving weapons to other Jihadis who fight Syrian troops, and hopefull occasionally also fight ISIS.

    Yep, sounds like a plan. What are these guys drinking?
