Posted in: With week to go, iPhone fans start queuing in Japan See in context

A few Samsung gimmicks won't float their boat. They need useful features like a good camera and security.

If you're talking about the camera on these phones...one interesting fact to note is that the one on the S4 is 13MP, while the 5S is 8MP.

It's best not to let personal biases get in the way of a good argument.

How come Samsung never gets so many people queuing for their new stuff?

Dunno. Maybe they're in a different line queuing for their welfare checks?

How does that even make sense?

The two suspects identified by Teramatsu have apparently had a history of using drugs and sexual harrassment, according to the police.

The Chinese government/media is a joke. Any sports event should not be plagued by political agendas.

Awesome, congratulations Japan! Hopefully TEPCO can get the situation under control at Fukushima by then.

A Chinese spy? Bet she knew a thing or two about phone-hacking.

How are you unbiased? You talk about Russia and China not representing the world accurately (whatever that means) and turn a blind eye to the actions of the US.

I'm not sure how the 'US do not usually veto against the majority' argument fits here... More elaboration and references would be great, thanks!

Tamarama, are you implying that the Syrian government are responsible for all the reported deaths so far?

The rebels are known for committing atrocities:

More like why is Kerry and Obama hellbent on military action based on baseless assumption as proven in their very vague report showing 'undeniable proof' that the Syrian government did it, completely ruling out the rebels possible involvement in the attacks.

Posted in: Obama tries to build support for Syria strike See in context

Syrian rebels in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta admitted to Associated Press correspondent Dale Gavlak that they were responsible for the chemical weapons attack, Not true:

Indeed: "Mint takes a similar approach to the Syrian story, with a reporter in Ghouta–not Gavlak but Yahya Ababneh, a Jordanian freelancer and journalism grad student–who "spoke directly with the rebels, their family members, victims of the chemical weapons attacks and local residents."

I believe FizzBit intended to say that 9/11 was a false flag. Many people did die in the attacks which was very real and not fake in that sense.

Posted in: British PM feeling the heat over Syria defeat See in context

For some people this is like a re-run of Iraq—only this time around they didn’t want to make the same mistake that was made last time, No, they decided to "fix" that mistake by making a totally different, arguably greater mistake this time. Provided with evidence of crimes against Humanity and a clear choice, a majority of MPs said, "So sorry about the gas, lads. Not our concern really." So much for England's out-sized. Influence

So you're 100% confident that the Syrian government was behind the chemical attacks and not the rebels? Obama said he wants to initiate missile strikes against the Syrian government for their use of chemical weapons(citation needed). He drew the red line against the use of chemical weapons but it's funny how the line just appears and disappears depending on which side you're on.

@Fw360: All horrific atrocities should be remembered and condemned, so that it will never be repeated... not brushed under the carpet or minimized or denied.

If I may add: ... and they should not be overplayed and used as tools decades later by governments to score political points serving only their own agendas.

You can argue that they are overplaying the issue, but you can't dispute the fact that it happened.

@Alejandro,

'Massacre' is too emotive a word to describe the Cultural revolution. Also, I highly doubt the Chinese government could hide the fact that such a revolutionary event had occurred during the PRC's short history.

@Zichi,

You omitted the fact that Mao's granddaughter is married to Chen, who happens to own an insurance company, an auction house and a courier firm. You can't possibly be suggesting that this wealth was built and owned by Kong herself, can you?

@Probie,

Seriously? You're implying rancid butter is composed completely out of butyric acid by the sound of things. This is not true as butyric acid makes up only 3-4% of the content in butter . If I were to follow your logic then coca cola 'is' phosphoric acid and only phosphoric acid. Initially coke is actually more acidic than vinegar due to the addition of phosphoric acid, but the copious amounts of sugar acts as a buffer, decreasing its pH. Even so its final pH level is around 2.5. Here is a link to better educate you on the acidity and corrosiveness of certain acids:

http://www.degruyter.com/dg/viewarticle/j$002fcorrrev.1992.10.3-4$002fcorrrev.1992.10.3-4.377$002fcorrrev.1992.10.3-4.377.xml;jsessionid=D7C81CAE09E9490A775D8F526C6A240E

This was retrieved from my (Sydney) university's online catalogue of peer-reviewed journals, articles and books. There are countless more references I could direct you to. However since you are so well informed I guess there's no need.

Also, judging by the number of dislikes for my post and the number of likes for yours, it says it all really. By being objective in presenting the fact that using coke would've been just as effective as rancid butter - albeit the foul smell, it seems as though some people have come to the conclusion that I am an anti-whaler despite the fact that I never implied such a thing.

@Probie Okay. Drop some nice cool coca cola in your eye and tell me how it feels.

See the flaw in your logic/argument? (pun intended)

I'm starting to feel that SS should've soaked the whalers in coke because in truth it is more acidic than rancid butter. Not to mention the results would have been the same, and less anti-SS people will whine about it on this forum.
