The best thing for the US is to look at its long-term strategic goals and figure out if they outweigh the cost of staying in Okinawa.

They copy what some workers wear when they work around totaled nuclear power plants.It might just be a way to stay safe from Fallout.

Posted in: A month after download law, consumers spending less on music: survey See in context

People can get their music fix elsewhere such as youtube,I assume downloading a video from there isn't prohibited yet.All it is going to do is kill exposure to media that isn't widely available.

If there is a movie,a song or a video game that is not easy to purchase...you are not going to be able to safely download it.

Posted in: British deaths raise questions about Afghan police See in context

Bear in mind that when it comes to counterinsurgency warfare;you need a certain amount of troops vis a vis the civilian population.

Apparently the Afghan troops are considered part of the solution when it comes to dealing with the Taliban.

If you're(from a Washington view)counting on the locals to maintain security in order to win and said locals are killing Western troops for the hell of it.

Well you're going to need a lot more then 40,000 extra soldiers at this point.

Posted in: 147 killed in Baghdad suicide car bombings See in context

Someone explained the whole Iraqi situation as a Parabola,as the number of US troops and the amount of militias "bribed" into supporting the government stays steady;things work out.

When the number of US troops decrease and the locals can't find jobs doing security for the government then violence starts to increase again.

It is not about winning or losing;it is just the math.If the US wants "victory",it is going to have to occupy Iraq(with a lot of soldier) and spend money making sure every Iraqi with a gun has something going for him.

Best thing to do at this point is dissolve Iraq and let Kurdistan and the Sunnis go their separate ways.Only thing worthwhile that can be done.

Back to square one.

I guess watching Iran getting shredded by terrorists could be considered a silver lining to this whole debacle.

Racial mixing is a time honored tradition in the South anyway.

So I don't see what he is complaining about,I am sure he is got some black ancestry at some point.

Posted in: HIV/AIDS continues steep increase in Japan See in context

Blaming Africans for HIV infection makes sense except that they don't come from Sub-Saharan Africa-they usually comes from West Africa where the rates are nowhere near as high.

It is got more to do with local sexual habits then anything else.

It is a very nice idea,an unworkable idea but a nice nonetheless.

Neither of these cities have the clout or the prestige to actually push this through.
