    These fanatical, radical, Islamists do not care who they murder. They are interested in making money thru acts of terrorism. It's unfortunate that these two hostages have fallen into the hands of bloodthirsty murderers but paying ransom will allow these kidnappers to kidnap even more hostages in the future.

    Kent Mcgraw - Most people and most cyber security experts believe it was an inside job and not North Korea. I do not think North Korea has the technology for a successful cyber attack.

    I wonder who these "most people" and "cyber security experts" are that suggested it was an inside job? Maybe they are being paid by N. Korea to drag red herrings across the electronic trail leading to N. Korea? Have they supported N. Korean "claims" in the past?

    In a new plan submitted to the International Whaling Commission (IWC) and its Scientific Committee, Tokyo set an annual target of 333 minke whales for future hunts, down from some 900 under the previous program.

    It also defined the research period as 12 years from fiscal 2015 in response to the court's criticism of the program's open-ended nature.

    It looks like Japan is abiding by the rules of the IWC and the international court.

    tim can - He died as a result of the choke hold, not to mention the cops finding giving CPR to be beneath them. No need to split hairs. Or are you going to contend that he died as a result of the ambulance ride?

    Are you making up your own scenario? Garner was not choked to death and you DO NOT give CPR to someone who has a pulse and is breathing. Repeatedly saying, "I can't breathe", indicates that Garner could breathe or he would not have been able to talk. Garner was alive when medics placed him on the stretcher in order to transport him to the ambulance.

    tim can - I made up no scenarios. I expressed doubt as to the "official" explanation and asked some questions.

    This case is not a White cop wanting to gun down a Black youth, but a case of a foolish boy pointing a gun at a cop, and paying the ultimate price for his stupidity. I can't rally behind that.

    There are lots of questions to be answered before deciding not to rally. This case is definitely different, but its not cut and dried just yet.

    The protesters in Berkeley, MO began "rallying" within hours of when the officer had to defend himself. The protestors began throwing rocks and bottles at the police officers and it doesn't appear that they care what the facts might be. They object to police officers arresting criminals and to police officers defending themselves.

    Roman Polanski is a pedophile. He drugged and raped a 13 year old girl. While Switzerland and Poland may not find Polanski's behavior disgusting or illegal, it's apparent that the U.S. does. Polanski has the choice to return to the U.S. and serve his time in prison. Polanski's 13 year old victim did not have any choice.

    But with President Obama among others criticizing the decision, Sony officials changed their minds. “The Interview” became available on a variety of digital platforms Wednesday afternoon, including Google Play, YouTube Movies, Microsoft’s Xbox Video and a separate Sony website. Meanwhile, Sony and independent theaters agreed to release it in over 300 venues on Christmas.

    Obama had nothing to do with the decision to produce, distribute, or show the movie. He had nothing to do with the decisions to eventually release the movie on the internet or in a few selected theaters.

    While I'm in favor of this movie being released to the public as a matter of free speech, I'm not in favor of the subject matter of the movie. Who in their right mind would think that a movie about the assignation of a sitting leader of a sovereign nation would be a great idea for a comedy? Did these Hollyweird genius's actually think that no one would feel insulted? Do they believe that they can yell FIRE in a crowded theater?

    Brinsley approached a squad car from behind and fired four shots Saturday afternoon, fatally wounding officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, before running into a subway station and ultimately killing himself.

    Hours earlier, Brinsley had shot and wounded his ex-girlfriend at her home outside Baltimore then made threatening posts online, including a vow to put "wings on pigs," and references to the police-involved deaths of Garner and Brown that have sparked racially charged protests across the U.S.

    Someone had to stir up Brinsley before he decided to drive all the way to NYC to murder police officers. I'll suggest that it was the race-baiting Sharpton and news outlets such as MSNBC and CNN who repeatedly distorted facts of both the Brown and Garner incidents.

    Mr. Noidall - Furthermore, maybe he wouldn't have died if the racist cops and paramedics would've performed cpr on him when it was clear that he was unresponsive. But no, they just fumbled through his pockets. Look at the video again. Gardner was murdered.

    FYI - You do NOT perform CPR on anyone who has a pulse and/or still breathing. Garner had a pulse and was still breathing.

    I've seen the videos. Garner wouldn't have died if Garner hadn't made the very bad choice to resist a lawful arrest. Maybe Garner should just have put his hands up? He certainly would have lived longer.

    Garner, an unarmed father of six, died after police held him in a chokehold while he was being arrested for selling illegal cigarettes in New York in July.

    Eric Garner did not die from strangulation, in spite of what you hear from the race-baiters and news outlets. According to the medical report, Garner died from cardiac arrest (a heart attack) during the ambulance ride to the hospital and was pronounced dead at the hospital. The 350lb Eric Garner had a history of asthma, diabetes, and obesity. Given his poor health, it's surprising that Garner would make the choice to resist a lawful arrest.

    Mislead by the misinformation constantly being fed the public, some psychopath from Baltimore, MD shoots his GF, and then drives 180 miles to NYC in order to murder the first two policemen he could. Brinsley then committed suicide. As far as I'm concerned, Brinsley should have ended his own life in Baltimore, before he chose to shoot his GF.

    On Friday, President Barack Obama declared that Sony "made a mistake" in shelving the satirical film about a plot to assassinate the North Korean leader, and pledged the U.S. would respond "in a place and manner and time that we choose" to the hacking attack on Sony that led to the movie's withdrawal.

    "I wish they had spoken to me first. ... We cannot have a society in which some dictator someplace can start imposing censorship," Obama said at a year-end news conference, speaking of executives at Sony Pictures Entertainment.

    After all of the hard decisions had already been made, Obama leads from behind by telling SONY they made the wrong choice without consulting him. Then he goes to Hawaii for a little holiday golf. Can you drive a golf ball from Hawaii to North Korea?

    The 9th Circuit ruled that the transfer of assets and control of the Sea Shepherd to Australia and other countries didn't change its 2012 order to the group to cease its dangerous activities.

    Contrary to the commissioner's conclusions, the 9th Circuit said Watson and the Sea Shepherd's U.S. affiliate could be found liable for aiding and abetting the organization's foreign offices to violate the court's injunction.

    "Sea Shepherd U.S. is liable because it intentionally furnished cash payments, and a vessel and equipment worth millions of dollars, to individuals and entities it knew would likely violate the injunction," Judge Milan Smith wrote for the unanimous panel.

    The court ruled that the eco-terrorist SS can be held liable and that means the eco-terrorist SS can be made to pay fines and penalties for their repeated acts of violence. Hopefully, the eco-terrorist SS will also lose their non-taxable charity status. That will crush their ability to raise funds in the U.S..

    This ruling will also provide incentive for other countries, such as Australia and the Netherlands, to restrict eco-terrorist SS financial support, and possibly remove all eco-terrorist SS garbage scows from the few national registries that still permit these violent thugs to leave and enter ports.

    Rogen and Franco pulled out of all media appearances Tuesday, canceling a Buzzfeed Q&A and Rogen's planned guest spot Thursday on "Late Night With Seth Meyers." The two stars had just appeared Monday on "Good Morning America" and Rogen guested on "The Colbert Report." A representative for Rogen said he had no comment. A spokeswoman for Franco didn't respond to queries Tuesday.

    Interesting. The "stars" of this "humorous" assassination movie have gone into hiding but the studio still expects the foolish public to pay to see this movie. The studio needs to recoup it's expenses and would not mind another international incident if it would increase sales. But don't expect the stars to come out of hiding.

    Heda_Madness - So some of you think that the global warming is a myth? Fair enough, you're entitled to your opinion.

    Yes, the global warming, as promoted by the IPCC and UN, is a myth. The IPCC has been trying to prove their myth for 25 years but the actual global temp just won't cooperate. Global temps haven't been increasing for over a decade. CO2 levels are up but the global temp isn't.

    Fossil fuels can be made cleaner.

    Pandabelle - Isn't their Dear Leader still on the run from an international arrest warrant?

    Why should anybody believe they will respect the laws of Japan now when they have shown such little regard previously?

    Given their past history of repeated acts of violence, there is no reason to believe that the eco-terrorist SS will respect the laws of Japan, or any other country. And yes, Watson is still on the run from an international arrest warrant. Rumor has it that Watson has suffered a stroke and will no longer be making public statements.

    Wilson, as well as the rest of the Ferguson police, have been receiving daily death threats from the lynch mob protestors. If Wilson returned to active police duty, one of these so-called peaceful protestors would have placed a fake call for assistance and murdered Wilson when he responded to the scene. It wasn't safe for Wilson to return to police work.

    It's known that Brown had robbed a store minutes before Brown attacked Wilson. Wilson had been sitting inside his police vehicle when Brown began the assault. Brown received his 1st gunshot wound while Brown's right arm was inside the police vehicle. Brown then chose to run away, stop, turn around to face Wilson, and then began to move towards Wilson. Eyewitness reports vary but forensic evidence prove that Brown was first shot while Brown was reaching into the police vehicle. Brown was shot 6 more times in his front torso and head while Brown was charging at Wilson.

    Wilson fired until he ended the threat that Brown created.

    Joji Morishita said the world’s anti-whaling nations should compromise and recognize that Japan is trying to meet them halfway after a ruling by the International Court of Justice banning the hunt.

    This is not a direct quote but the interpretation of the writer. The ICJ did not ban the whale hunt.

    “Hopefully this research plan would trigger or send some message (to international opponents) because we have accepted the ICJ judgement in our research plan,” Morishita told journalists.

    This is a quote from Morishita where he's talking about accepting the ICJ judgment. Japan has submitted a new plan to the IWC.

    Time will tell if Obama will actually try to work with the opposition party. Good government is based on the ability to compromise. U.S. Senators and U.S. Congressmen will represent their constituents, who have wide ranging, individual concerns. The Congress will send bills to the President and the President will either sign them or he won't. The question is, will there be two more years of stalemate or two years of compromise?

    Frungy - "On hold" means "never accept". "On hold" could be 1 day or it could be 10 years, and there's no incentive for the big power companies to let them in, because it would mean less profit.

    Green energy is a commercial venture. You seem to be confusing "green" with "commie". You're in error.

    No, "on hold" does not mean "never accept". That is your opinion, not mine.

    And no, I'm not confusing "green" with "commie". Again, that is your opinion, and not mine. You appear to have made the error.

    But Kyushu Electric Power Co, the utility to which he must sell his electricity, has recently placed on hold all new applications for getting on its grid. Four other utilities have made the same announcement and two more announced partial restrictions.

    The utilities say they can’t accommodate the flood of newcomers to the green energy business, throwing in doubt the future of Japan’s up-to-now aggressive strategy on renewable energy. Another challenge is that supplies of power from sources such as solar are not reliable enough or easily stored.

    It seems that the power company has only placed new applications on hold. They can't accommodate the flood of newcomers. The power company didn't say they would never accept the so-called green energy suppliers.

    It seems the so-called green energy suppliers are panicking that their multi yen investments aren't making a profit yet.
