Posted in: Trump says Cohen hearing may have contributed to North Korea summit failure See in context

But Trump in the best mood possible, not distracted, maybe something else gets done.

A sulky president, brilliant. That would explain why he has achieved zilch in two years; he's always in a bad mood. We need to build a 'Truman show' alternate reality around him, with fawning media and daily Nobel prizes. He might actually do some work then.

When a politician who you like says something inaccurate, he or she "misspeaks."

If a politician lies as often as Trump does, most of us tend not to like them in the first place. Since you've bought all his lies so far, it must be hard be bothered about any new ones.

It's inconceivable that Trump could manage to get through this whole circus without lying at least once.

Lots of deep inaka 7-11s don't open 24 hrs, I suppose they have a different contract. Plus the Queen Conbini Bee keeps on dropping loads of new conbinis every year, must be a tough business. Reminds me of the 'Shoe Event Horizon' Douglas Adams (Hitchikers Guide To The Galaxy) once wrote about. We're all doomed.

Posted in: Trump says talks with Kim failed over N Korean sanctions demands See in context

Any challenge from within (if it were to happen at all) would likely produce another unscrupulous so-and-so from the military brass

@Bungle, you're probably right. I don't think the impoverished peasants of NK have been in any position to do much anyway. The long game was perhaps to keep them contained and hope for an East German style miracle.

Summits like this should never take place unless both sides are sure an agreement can be reached.

Agreed. It all seemed so rushed, as if everyone was eager to get home. Didn't the Americans have any idea what Kim's demands were before they shipped the whole circus to 'Nam? Trump seems so uncomfortable being anywhere except the golf course or in front of the telly with a burger.

Posted in: Trump says talks with Kim failed over N Korean sanctions demands See in context

Trump gave legitimacy to Kim.

What exactly does that mean, considering that ignoring NK hasn’t yielded favourable results either.

I think it means that Kim's prestige & grip on his country has been immeasurably strengthened by the meetings, which makes the chances of his horrid regime being challenged from within NK greatly diminished. Some may argue that the chance of the regime crumbling were slim anyway.

Well, Cohen lied a few times, so his credibility is shot

Does that mean yours is shot too? This man should be a treasure trove of Trump treachery. You should prepare further defensive positions. I suggest, "Proves nothing", followed by the inevitable, "So what?".

"Donny" will happily continue to see to it that NoKor ceases launching missiles over Hokkaido.

"Donny" was responsible for 'Rocket Man' launching them in the first place, let's not forget that.

all you need to do is give him credit!

Bow to Caesar! Why is this President and his supporters so desperate to for baubles & praise? How desperately sad is it that he has to post a list of his own accomplishments?

Thank him for it!

These citizenship stripping laws are premised entirely on the idea that returnees will use their citizenship status to carry out imminent attacks in the west, but there is literally zero credible suspicion of that in this case.

'Literally zero credible suspicion' is a huge exaggeration; After all, she joined IS, the government will have a strong case that she is a danger to British citizens.

Wouldn't re-establishing control over your borders and not having to accept policies made by bureaucrats in Brussels outweigh having a smaller economy

Possibly. The fear is that the EU will still be able to dictate immigration & economic policies to a large degree despite Brexit. There is no doubt that it is going to be a messy few years for us, the EU will make sure of it even if our politicians don't

They don't care. You are FORCED to give them money. The capitalist way is based on voluntarism. They can't take your money.

Obviously not FORCED since the majority of people here seem to have not been FORCED to pay any money. But when the capitalist taxman next FORCES you pay income tax good luck with your bizarre socialism rant.

Hard to know if Trump's dire need for praise and recognition is part of some megalomaniac delusions or tragic attention deficit problem. He displays the same symptoms as many troubled children I've seen in my life.

Posted in: Activists file suit to stop dolphin hunting in Japan See in context

Lets criticize Japan a country already treating animals better than most Western countries out there.

I'm afraid Japan treats animals very badly, and has a deservedly awful worldwide reputation; Japan is renowned for animal cruelty. Japan scores a 'D' on the World Animal Protection rankings. I have heard it said that Japanese people treat all animals equally. Equally poorly perhaps. They have yet to sign the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare (UDAW). Japanese people rate animals & nature in terms of their utility to man. This is true of a dolphin, whale, tree or slug. All are ripe for exploitation.

https://api.worldanimalprotection.org/country/japan

Furthermore, they are ravenous eaters and deplete the oceans of fish.

I wonder if this kind of ignorance is deliberate trolling or is taught. JARPA tried this approach at the IWC some time back and were laughed out of the room by all.

Tuna and all fishes are now becoming scarce due to dolphins

Where to begin? Perhaps the 100yen kaiten-sushi, or the supermarket shelves? If you believe that ridding the oceans of 'things that eat fish' will lead to more fish on your plate then you should think about what @browny1 said below

coz here's me thinking it was the voracious appetite and greed of humans via factory fishing that was decimating fish populations. Silly me!

And I have never seen dolphin meat here,in the hundreds of times that I have been to supermarkets in Japan

I've seen it on sale locally quite a few times, it's often promoted with a little old lady handing out small chunks to shoppers. They probably don't know it's loaded with lots of nutritious mercury.

Posted in: Harrison Ford attacks leaders who deny climate change See in context

"Scientists" have a long and dubious record of inventing problems that don't exist, and blowing out of proportion problems that do exist but are not really that serious.

The reason you were able to type that sentence and I was able to read it is because of "scientists". Science has advanced every area of human life. The beauty of science is that bad science doesn't stand up for very long because it is based on demonstrable facts, not emotions.

Follow the money.

Go on then, follow it. Tell us where does it lead? Big oil? Arabia?

its all about money and population control.

Is that a line from a Hollywood movie? Sounds ominous, but Continuing to rely on dwindling fossil fuels enriches the people you most hate. The downside of seeking alternative energy sources is
