The USA and Japan should VOLUNTARILY be kicked out of the UN. Who pays most of the UN bills? The USA and Japan do. Who causes all the problems in world? Take a wild guess! It is about time the neighborhood countries defend their territories rather than letting Russia, Iran, et al play war games to test their technology. SCORE: USA technology 1, Russia technology 0. The saddest part is the pilot was defenseless and used as technology practice as he descended in a parachute.

If it flies, it can kill. If it is good enough to defend itself, go ahead and try. So now it is important that a F-16 pilot of other nations to first look at the enemy, decide if it is a fair fight, then flight or fight? What is this situation - a board game or just rhetoric from readers and commenters on blogs? Nothing is " fair in love and war" but, "A fair is place to take your animal to be judged" - an American joke. If anyone really cared about the attacker and the target in the "fairness sense," private oil transporter trucks would not be destroyed by sophisticated air power.

There is no evidence that Russia has destroyed any IS targets. Russia has only tried to support Assad by bombing his enemy. What is the positive outcome of the loss of the Russian fighter? It proves that either Russia is sending inexperienced pilots on missions that it expected no challenge to occur and/or (more likely or) the Russian built fighter is inferior to the USA built F-16 fighter even if it piloted by a NATO pilot. Surprise, Russian built planes always have been inferior since day one. Russia has always used the "Big Bluff" to meet it objectives.

All food must be tax free. The human right to food, water, and clean air cannot be taxed. Tax everything else such as the expensive clothes, shoes, tickets to anything, alcohol, etc. that a politician needs for his/her "survival."

Iraq wouldn't need the money if "W" had used an old fashioned missile to hit targets - A CRUISE MISSILE. Instead, carpet bombing destroyed everything so that his veepee's company could rebuilt at USA taxpayers expense. Japan is very generous and maybe it will benefit the children.

Too much free time here. Protest something that matters such as terrorism. It will not make much difference if there is no place to stand.

The world is always "reactionary." Tell the media, tourists, and who knows who else to stay out of those countries. Again, it is not their job to get the "story of the century" on the world's media and to put their lives in danger.

Anything that can keep a uniformed human being from standing on the SAND that has been fought over for centuries is the correct decision.President Obama was elected to keep people home. In addition, why is the USA bombing the oil wells? Bomb delivery system-the port where ships arrive an load oil for distribution to other countries, maybe China? George 1 couldn't stop the well fires because Saddam set them on fire. Good ol' W bombed the water supply and who knows what else when it was far easier to use Cruise, etc. weapons to take out strategic targets. "Carpet bombing" was used in WW II in Germany because targets were not as easily targeted. 1940 strategy is inappropriate for the 21st cenury.

Read "Rhinoceros" by Ionesco. Resist the temptation to become one of them in order to fit into the new society. Go to work, the cafe, restaurant, theatre, and sporting event. When one of terrorists is capture, send him/her to the gallows. It may give him or her what he or she wants, but not on this earth.

So far all the debates have been conducted by extremely high paid,amateurish narrators who are looking for a junior high school playground bullying activity. It would be interesting and appropriate if all the candidates in all the future debates would take the position, "I am not going to respond to a question that is not on topic." This debate is supposed to be about finance, jobs and government action to stimulate the economy, etc. The USA has 5% unemployment now and an outrages health and incomprehensible income tax code. What the candidates did is no longer important; what the candidates' actual plan is is important. What is the chance for adults to discuss adult issues? 0.00000000001%. The French have one point correct, the more the change, the more the same!

Read George HW Bush's new book. Cheney and Rumsfeld get what they deserve from the former president. However, he was very careful not to criticize his son "W" about his appointments.

It's amazing that the people who know nothing about the situation pretend to know everything about it. Some news programs waste hours of broadcast time in discussion with "experts." Wait for the evidence in the recording boxes.

Great idea, H. That idea is the "nail in the coffin" for election. Just because she wants to make it an issue is not what the USA population wants to hear. Chicago politics is full of President Obama's former cronies. Gun control is not possible, and H. knows it. It is just a photo op for her.

bass4funk- Yes, anyone can be nominated for the honor. It is good to see a variety of opinions on this subject. It is just another waste of money for people on an expense account.

Be careful Taiwan, the thief is at the door. Open it at your expense. Do not ignore the lesson the people learned in Hong Kong's transfer. It is going to be very difficult for the USA to protect Taiwan as it does in Japan and South Korea, and China knows it very well.

Rumsfeld? Next will be the Nobel Peace Prize for him and the following. McNamara & Johnson, Rumsfeld & Bush, and the next two do not deserve any honors for the destruction, death, and suffering they caused in Vietnam and Iraq and Afghanistan. The truth is just now coming out about the Vietnam Conflict. It was all about money, and amazingly, the same redevelopment project company is still in the R & B conflict. Were they wars? No, the USA Congress last declared war against - wait for it - JAPAN. None of the above deserves any reward or recognition, they all should have to spend their retirement time sending a letter of apology to everyone who was injured or the family of the injured because of their reckless decisions. President Obama has made many mistakes, but he has not sent troops in large numbers to fight on the ground some other country's war. Watch the election debates to see which team will move forward.

SOLD! How much is the cost per airbag to the company? When M. Jackson did a soft drink ad for tv, it cost the company one US penny per six pack of the drink to produce. M. Jackson got a check for one million USD.
