    Feel really sorry for the family here. Kids always go through a rebellion stage before settling down into something more stable. They'll never get this chance. their son's rebellious choice shouldn't have even been an option in a sane world. As I said, I feel sorry for them.

    Whatever you do, don 't mention the war! I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it.

    I also hear cup noodles raise your IQ, and I'm sure family mart reheated pasta meals increase your bank balance. I'm looking forward to seeing who they use in the upcoming ads to showcase these facts.

    this series of news regarding historical issues is extremely complicated, for it is a matter of what people believe and what they don't.

    I would think that the former POWs, seeing as they experienced things first hand, would be basing their objections on more than just beliefs.

    I agree with other posters who've said that if there are major unresolved issues with a foreign dignitary, just don't invite them to speak in the first place. You can't tell a foreign leader what they can and can't say.

    I think the importance of victories like this slips under a lot of western media radars. Having these nations' armies work together to drive out these scum is a great thing. They need the full support of everyone to continue this. Counties standing up and working together to solve their own problems should be a thing cheered and supported across the globe.

    UK9393, while I agree with you, he also stopped any chance of civility growing too, so when he was gone, there was nothing to fill the void except petty rivalries and tribal retribution. Not good either way when you look at it.

    Let's just skip all the pretense and put the 2026 World Cup on ebay. It'll go to the country with the deepest pockets anyway, so this will just save everyone a lot of time and effort, and we'll end up with the same result.

    Boko Haram fighters killed 68 people, many of them children

    We seem to be reading things like this every week lately. These people are animals. They're on one giant power trip where they think they can show their superiority by shooting unarmed children. I'm sorry, but I can't use the language here I'd really like to. They are scum of the earth and should be shown no mercy. We can only judge what they claim to believe and represent by their actions, and clearly their actions are abominable.

    I loved the first film, but please, Hollywood, leave it alone. Make something original instead. We've seen with the Alien and Tron "let's go back and make a sequel" efforts that they'll hash something together that will be kinda OK, make the money the studios want, but with no real effort put into it and a kind of ordinary script. Blade Runner doesn't deserve this.

    I guess this shows the difference between politicking and governing... Good to see there was general condemnation from members of both parties. Still, until fundamental problems in the US political system, such as gerrymandering that allows politicians to be accountable to their party rather than the people who elected them, we'll continue to see things like this happen. Change only happens when enough of the majority get fed up enough to act.

    In search of? I think it was renamed Great Mysteries of the World here. He was perfect to host for the show. It brings back good memories of my youth, as does watching Star Trek. Not knowing the man outside of his performances, all I can say is that he seemed like a nice guy, was very talented, and he touched the lives of so many people around the world in a positive way. Not many can say that as they leave the building. RIP Mr. Nimoy, you will be missed.

    Mike, I think this website (http://www.epa.gov/climatechange/science/causes.html) from the U.S. E.P.A. explains it better than I can. Of course, media pundits clearly know more about this topic than people who actually study it, so what do I know...

    Temperatures go up, they go down. The climate changes regularly. There are a number of factors that cause this, from solar output, volcanic eruptions, continental drift and numerous other factors. Scientists can map climate variances and their causes. Weirdly enough, this current climate change does not map to any known previous cause of climate change. The only factor that is different this time is the amount of atmospheric pollution (excess CO2 in the atmosphere etc.), but who believes scientists anyway, they're only interested in creating issues so they can fund their own research. I know this because journalists who get paid for creating controversy to sell newspapers told me, and I'll trust them any day over scientists. If a scientist creates a cure for cancer, they surely must be lying so they can get more funding for research...

    Sigh... I hate how certain organisations turn this issue into a POLITICAL issue. It isn't. The science is CLEAR. ...but stupidity runs deep. Even just a cursory glance at the anti-human-induced-climate-change arguments shows that they are full of contradictions and falsehoods. But there are vested interests with a lot of money who don't want any government regulation to reduce their profit making. Kind of depressing, really.

    Open Minded, absolutely. Whether you could convince the voting FIFA members it's a good idea or not is another thing. That, though, isn't an excuse to bid for a June World Cup and have FIFA switch it to December because it would be impossible for you to host it in June.

    Raymond, agree that the temperature at that time of year is terrible, but the bid was won based on hosting it at that time of year. Qatar promised measures to counter this. They won the bid based on a June World Cup. I personally have no problem with a November/December World Cup, but for the author of this article to use a broken promise by Qatar/FIFA on the staging of the World Cup to attack those federations that complain that they were lied to, that is just troll journalism and I have no idea why JT would publish such blatant rubbish.

    Wow... this is one of the worth pieces of biased writing I've read in a long time... Does the writer realise that the Qatar bid was for a June World Cup. The nations that voted for Qatar did so on basis of a June World Cup. If Qatar had bid for a November World Cup and won it, then this article would be making a valid point. Unfortunately, the bid was built on falsehoods and questionable dealings. When FIFA accept those conditions in a bid, they have no right to expect the various federations to kneel and grovel at their feel. Ridiculous article.

    Russian argument: Blaming America for bringing chaos to the Middle East, which is such a terrible, terrible thing, whereas bringing chaos to Eastern Europe is completely acceptable.

    I don't think this movie is anti-Islam propaganda, nor do I think it's pro-America propaganda. Seems to me it's a movie about people in wars killing other people, which is what war is all about. War is stupid. Wars start because stupid people think it's ok to kill innocent bystanders to make a point. Glorifying war is stupid, but denying the need to stop others from kill people for no real rational reason is also stupid. It's a difficult topic to address with the right sort of control. I don't intend to see this movie, as from what I've seen so far, I don't feel it gets the balance right. As for Iran’s supreme leader... he can show the world his ignorance, but it wont affect my opinion.
