Hmmm....no notebooks in this photo. How disrespectful - they must think he's talking BS.

What are those weird plastic tubes on the front of their bikes? Urine collectors?

Correct me if I am wrong, but they have agreed to show a video that has parts redacted? I recall this was tentatively agreed some months ago, although I don't have a story to hand that proves this will be the case. Is anyone else aware of this? If true, you can be sure the incriminating video evidence will not be shown.

It wasn't a truck bomb. Special Forces operation - perfectly legit to anyone other than the Russian state. Watch the attack video in slow motion - the camera shows shock distortion before the truck disappears in flames. NATO is not scared of a conventional Russian onslaught, less so now the Russian armed forces have had a calamitous campaign and have now lost 40% of the total stock of Main Battle Tanks.

Yes, I do wonder whether the search was done thoroughly. Maybe it was, maybe not. The discovery of human remains so close the where the girl went missing has to raise questions. It may very well turn out everything possible was done. Still, these questions should be asked and I am sure they will be.

Agreed, as I think I've alluded to in the second sentence of my post. Despite the difficulties, it's the life of a 7 year old.

I do wonder how thorough the initial search was. Despite difficult terrain, surely even inch within the first 1km radius should have been searched?

I wish her the best. Born into a very difficult situation, forced to wear 1950s clothing with pearls more suited to another age.

Murder. 5 years. What is wrong with the judiciary in Japan?

Posted in: Tokyo takes most of Olympic torch relay off public roads See in context

I'm in the UK. Not one person has mentioned the Olympics. No one cares - it's devalued. Such a shame for Japan not to show some cojenes and cancel the whole thing. To me, it just shows it's a money machine - the lack of fans doesn't seem to make a difference. There is less chance I'll watch the Olympics in the future.

Feel sorry for the families of the other deceased in this cemetery in Paris - his grave site has been turned into a shrine with tourists blasting out some of the greatest hits from The Doors.

Posted in: Olympic torch relay to be taken off Tokyo's public roads for first 8 days See in context

Well I guess no-one gives a damn. I'm in UK at the moment - zero build up to the Olympics. Complete disrespect to the majority of the Japanese public who think these games should not go ahead. Corporate cash rules.
