"What a weak failure of a mother", wow, you have no idea what her or her son's life might have been like. I'm not saying it was a good decision, but I know stress breaks people all the time and before the, 'seek help', replies, I've also seen that way to often help can't be found. She will have to live with what she did, one life ended and one was ruined, empathy is free, there's no charge for having it.

It's always better to at least provide an opportunity for a meaningful dialogue, even if it is not used and I'm willing to bet that much more goes on in the corridors of the UN than in the assembly room.

Very funny, I had a good laugh, at about the 6 minute mark two cops catch a criminal and say, 'I found the gun', next scene two cops catch a criminal and say, 'I found the drugs', next scene cops are chasing man out of a door and I really expected them to say, ' I found the man in the bad suit'.

bass4funk, what makes you say that Bernie is bad, have you looked at his voting record or the things he stands for or against?

Burning Bush, MarkG, how much more of your money are you willing too donate, to continue making weapons makers even richer? Also you might want to research past wars and look at the amount of bombs dropped and the armies that still survived and kept fighting.

Noble713, I hear the Chicago example so often, even though it's ridiculous, I have to respond. Look at the lax gun laws surrounding Chicago, it's near impossible to enforce a law if the adjacent areas don't have complementary laws.

MarkG, not exactly sure what history you're looking at, perhaps you should do a little research into all the benefits of our wars and foreign policy. Remember to look past what they want you to see and look at what they're trying to hide.
Jimizo, "US foreign policy benefits the US. This is perfectly understandable. Whether this has benefitted or harmed other countries is incidental." I think the millions of dead, might disagree about it only being 'incidental'.

MarkG, you could be right, we've seen the chaos resulting when America does whatever it wants.

Iran is not on a march to acquire nuclear weapons, not in a few months or years or maybe ever. Although I wouldn't fault them for trying, as it seems the only thing that keeps America from attacking countries is possession of nuclear weapons. Israel will probably use it's nuclear weapons, because it is the only country that would get away with it due to America's backing.

SOFA, signed by George Bush 2008. I'm sure you 've already heard of this, but would like to blame everything on Obama. In actuality Obama tried to extend the US presence in Iraq, but the Iraqi government would have no part of it. Also the majority of Americans wanted us out of Iraq. Although I have my own reservations about Obama, I think that any intelligent person will see that the relationship with Congress is due to the totally moralless republicans in congress, whose only concern is to increase the wealth of the already rich. And as far as Obama being an idiot, might I remind you who got us into Afghanistan and Iraq to begin with. Bush was warned and had recent history to draw from, (remember Russia in Afghanistan). Bush was told by his own advisors when going into Iraq, "you break it, you bought it." So please take off your right wing blinders and place the blame where it truly belongs.

It always amazes me(not really) how hypocritical the American government is. An American journalist is killed and the President demands the world to react. Meanwhile we drop bombs all around the world causing I'm sure more than one beheading, but that's ok.

Well 'zichi' replace 'Saddam' with 'America' and tell me what the difference is. And bass4funk you know that it was our meddling that has Iraq in the state it's in today, and as soon as we forget the past we repeat it. What do we do to stop this and the future waves? Stay out of other's affairs unless we're willing to move in and take over the whole country's problems and since we don't seem to be taking care of many of the problems here in the States I don't really think that's a good idea.
