The area of Gaza is 360 square km and the area of Tokyo is 2188 square km. Gaza is either sand or buildings and streets. Nothing else, and it is overcrowded with almost 2 million people. There is no industry. There is absolutely no doubt that Gaza's military is completely supported by foreign countries through the tunnels and a political group that wants to destroy Israel. Why is it so difficult to determine which side fires the first shot when there is an agreed cease fire? Look at how fast the location of the missile that destroyed flight 17 was determined. The world needs to accept the fact that this conflict will never end.

It is a game, and everyone knows it. It is cruel that the families must suffer, but this is a minor event for someone who not only kills an uncle, but incarcerates the uncle's family. What does the rotund boy Un want? USA dollars, not yen, but spendable hard currency, and unfortunately, the 'carrot" is working again.

Thank you "W" for getting the USA in a situation where in 950 AD the situation deteriorated. Thank you President Obama for saying that the USA needs to get out of the area. Thank you allies for sitting on your hands and wishing "W" was in charge again. "Deja vu, all over again." Japan can expect oil prices to rise, so it needs to protect the south flank.

"Extremely serious" should get the message to them. The USA needs to claim victory and bring everyone home from Iraq and Afghanistan. Cut the losses and leave. A terrible waste of lives and money, and nothing has changed for centuries.

It is SIMPLE. Nobody or no government can legislate morality. What a farce. It is a good investment is smuggled pornography. The price just went up, and there are plenty of consumers.

If the teachers were assigned their classroom and were responsible for making it an interesting environment for learning, then perhaps bullying would decrease. Why? Experience shows that teachers move in and out of classrooms every hour in the junior high level. They run to the teachers' room to nap rather than being alert in their classrooms or supervising the hallways during preparation time. Vice principals and principals need to roam the halls during passing times and lunch times. If there is a problem with a student or students, the parents need to be called and the student is sent home. If the parent is not available, put the student in the office and tell the student to stay home until the parent comes to the school. Send a letter, e-mail, text, skymail or call to contact the parents. Don't let the inmates run the asylum.

In 1989 the student government at Red Bluff Union High School organized a petition to protest against China's action. It was signed by hundreds of students and faculty members and mailed to the consulate in San Francisco. This year the class will hold its 25th reunion. Congratulations, graduates. You made a small statement but an important free speech statement. Good luck in the future.

Divide and conquer; a velvet revolution; a KGB master plan. Putin knows exactly what to do to rebuild the USSR. It is the Economic Cold War. A few deaths here and there are acceptable. It is part of the grand plan. What Europe does for the former USSR countries will determine how many Putinvilles will be established. St. Putinville, it sounds a little familiar?

The jury system is the best way to determine guilt or innocence. The problem is the lay jury sitting with the professionally trained judges. It should either be all lay people or all judges who make the decision. Does anyone know how much time the judges spend educating the new lay person about law? Mistakes are going to be made with any system, but this system is not a good choice.

This guy wants to be an All American Hero. He claims he served his country and now wants a parade in New York. He is delusional. He was never trained as a CIA-NSA spy just as Elvis Presley was never allowed to be an under cover agent for the FBI. Albert, CIA K-9 (Ret.) is a better trained than this guy, and he is a dog. This coward cut and ran to the USSR-Putinville. Stay there. He deserve the same treatment as American Army lieutenant Philip Nolan - a man without a country.

How about having health insurance pay 100% of prenatal, birth and post natal care? More children, no empty schools, and best of all, MORE FUTURE TAXPAYERS AND CONSUMERS.

"Sorry but there's just no excuse for killing innocent people like this," Guess what, no country is going to come to the aid of Vietnam, certainly not the USA. Be careful Vietnam, the Putin lesson plan on protecting its citizens is in the shadows.

Why is it that the micro-brewries can't sell their products at the local convenie? The monopolies control the markets and own the politicians. The same situation existed the the USA in the '60s when there were only four major producers. Then, someone realized they were really producing yellow water with alcohol in it AND the politicians saw increased employment and sales tax by letting the micros sell at the local convenie. Kampai to hope that Japan will change.

Vietnam is reacting just the way China wants it to react. Next come the declaration that China has to protect its citizens. Then, the tank, troops, and navy move in the the area. Putin has learned his lessons from the master.

Another "PINK" line in the sand from the West. Pink meaning, well, maybe, if ..... Putin has his hand on the natural gas valve and he is not afraid off turning off the supply. Europe knows it, the USA knows it, and Putin knows it. The Economic Cold War is going to be won by Putin and the "Back in the USSR" is where he wants the lost children to return.
