@Bjorn apparently does. As the father of a 6yo boy I would love to know his secret to preventing children from having little fits and crying.

Im gonna go out on a limb and guess Bjorn’s one of those "my parents hit me and I turned out ‘fine’" kind of parents.

Huh. I guess the military being a breeding ground for right-wing extremism isn’t an exclusively American phenomenon. We’ve just raised it to an art form.

We all knew this was coming when the coalition decided to turn its back on the Afghans because we were “tired.”

It has to end at some point, unless you’re suggesting we just make Afghanistan the 51st state. It’s Vietnamization 2.0 - when you train a security force to rely solely on American firepower and logistics, you breed dependence. And just like the ARVN before them, once the Afghan security forces realize that Uncle Sam isn’t going to pick up when they call, they collapse like a house of cards.

At the end of the day, Afghanistan will only have peace and security is it’s the Afghanis who bring it about. Otherwise the Taliban will just steamroll the barely-independent, demoralized, and corrupt security forces the same way Giap did in 1975.

child without a mask

Please point to the part of the article where it said the child didn't have a mask.

I think its weird how parents don't control or discipline their children any more these days

"The girl started crying, and while her mother was trying to calm her down, the suspect came from behind them and hit the child’s head once."

@Bjorn. From this comment and others you've made, I understand that reading comprehension is not your strong suit, but c'mon. It says, in the fourth sentence of the article, that the mother was trying to stop the child from crying when some random lady walked up and hit a kid that wasn't hers.

Nobody here was there are know the condition of the old person, people here are very quick to jump on the elderly on everything

"very quick to jump on the elderly on everything" is a very strange way to spell "hold the elderly responsible for their actions".

If her 'condition' is so deteriorated that she is incapable of hearing a crying child without reacting with violence, then maybe she ought not be allowed out in public. There is never a call to his a child, especially a random child in a shopping mall.

Posted in: More support easing vaccine patent rules, but hurdles remain See in context

After he developed the polio vaccine - one of the medical wonders of the 20th century - Jonas Salk deliberately chose not to patent it. His idea would have made him one of the richest men in the world, but he chose not to patent it deliberately so that any company anywhere in the world could freely produce his vaccine. He gave up potentially become a billionaire so that people could have easy and cheap access to his drug.

Today, he’d be called a socialist.

You know your not actually making any counter arguments, right? 

We have murder laws. people still murder. We have DUI laws, people still DUI. Robbery laws, assault, rape.

Uhh he’s actually making a very cogent argument, it’s just one that you’re not willing to hear. So lemme spell it out for you.

Gun crime is the ONLY type of crime in America where people argue that the solution is FEWER laws, not more. People say that looser gun laws will prevent gun violence, yet no one seems to think few murder laws will prevent murders.

Why would you want to live in France if it's not a good fit for you?

Maybe because just ‘moving somewhere else’ isn’t an option? Maybe they don’t have tens of thousands of dollars to do it? Or a job lined up? Or knowledge of a language besides French? Or maybe they want to live in France because France is their home?

Posted in: Australian PM retreats from threat to jail Australians trying to return from India See in context

@Illyas

This isn’t a case of quarantine breaking. It’s not like these people came home and then failed to quarantine for 2 weeks or something. They are being completely locked out of their own country for an indeterminate amount of time. The article says the restriction ends May 15th, but what it fails to mention is that that date is not a hard deadline and can be legally extended indefinitely. Whereas other countries worked to evacuate their citizens from Covid hotspots immediately so they wouldn’t get infected, Morrison seems to have taken the opposite approach, locking out citizens completely with zero recourse should health individuals become infected during their forced time in India and idk...hoping India will take care of them? Who knows? Certainly not Morrison. What’s insidious is how he keeps talking about ‘keeping Australians safe’ as if the people he wasn’t deliberately locking down in a viral incubator aren’t the exact Australians he claims to want to protect.

"I'm not going to fail Australia. I'm going to protect our borders at this time."

Though unconfirmed, those close to Morrison allege he followed up this comment with, “Curse you, He-man!” and then impotently shook his blue-skinned fists at the sky.

For somebody who wanted to stay out of the media spotlight, he is failing miserably.

If he had just stayed silent and went about living his life, these same people would be bleating, “What is he doing?? He has all that money and influence and he’s not using any of it to help people?? How selfish!”

Some people are just happier when they’re miserable...

Some cards.. I don't recall the Afghani people ever inviting the US in the first place. The country is worse off now than before the US invasion.

I never said they we’re good cards. I never said they were the cards they asked for. I never said they were the cards the wanted. I never said they were the cards they needed. I most certainly never said they were the cards they deserved.

But those are the cards they were dealt. How they play those cards is up to them.

Ho Chi Minh said it best - “You can kill ten of our men for every one we kill of yours. But even at those odds, you will lose and we will win.”

South Vietnam fell after all the years of blood and treasure the US spent on it, ultimately, because the people just didn’t like the South Vietnamese govt enough to die for it. Say what you will about the North, but they were utterly committed to their cause, committed enough to wage a 30 year war against the most powerful military on earth.

If Afghanistan falls to the Taliban again, it will be because the Afghani people decided their democratic govt wasn’t worth dying for - that it would be better to live under the Taliban than to wage war against them.

I can’t say whether that decision is the right one or the wrong one - that’s not my place. But those are the cards the people of Afghanistan have been dealt. If the freedoms and progress you have made are as precious to you as you claim, then you simply cannot rely on others to defend them for you, otherwise - like Diem and Thieu before you - you’ll be seen as nothing but a foreign puppet. The Taliban need to know that the govt of Afghanistan is one supported by the people, not one propped up by an outside invader.

Longtime chief Steve Conrad was forced out in the summer after officers responding to a shooting during a protest failed to turn on their body cameras

Officers who fail to turn on their body cameras or who turn them off should be automatically charged with destroying evidence. Because that’s what it is.

there should be some reforms in various departments

And what ‘reforms’ do you propose? Because I’d like to see a national data base of fired cops, so that cops who lose their jobs STAY lost. And lowering the bar from “willful” to “reckless”, so that cops are held to the same legal standards as everybody else. And the idea that if cops are held to the same standard as everyone else, there won’t be any cops is ludicrous. It just means cops will actually have to try. You can bring up your anecdotes about ‘my friend the cop’ all you like, but that doesn’t change the fact that the current system is not working and it is FAR too easy for bad cops to continue to hold immense power with near impunity. You want people to stop treating all cops with suspicion? Well, maybe you ought to talk to your cop friends about turning on the bad cops within. But they don’t. The instant a cop does something wrong, the blue wall goes up and the union tell us to ‘wait and not pass judgement’ while they hurriedly concoct some kind of half-plausible cover story. They ask us to give the cop the benefit of the doubt, to let him have his day in court, to presume his innocence - all privileges he denies to others. Not all cops are murderers. Not even most. But enough cops will cover for their murderous brethren that they are Mitläufers at best and accomplices at worst.

So his colleagues weren’t wearing masks? If so, proof they don’t work.

Can we stop with this crap? My mask isn’t meant to protect me from you, it’s meant to protect you from me. It’s meant to catch my coughs so they don’t spread outward, not filter incoming air like it’s a gd gas mask. This ignorance is why this pandemic is dragging on so long.

end up either out oof a job or even prison.

Less than 2% of cops involved in unlawful killing are even charged, let alone go to jail. And there is literally NOTHING stopping a cop who is fired in one jurisdiction from moving to the next town over and becoming a cop again. I dunno where you get this delusional idea that bad cops don’t get to continue to be cops.

Firing upon a fleeing vehicle is not SOP due to the dangers it poses to bystanders.

Whats a few dead bystanders when compared to an officer’s Rambo urges? If that bullet had taken that old man out in his living room, he should have been glad to sacrifice his life so that a cop didn’t have to endanger his own. /sarc

Posted in: Biden recognizes atrocities against Armenians as genocide See in context

The history behind the Armenian Genocide is terrifyingly fascinating. Adolf Hitler himself used the international community's refusal to act as a justification for his own genocide. In his mind, the world wouldn't bother to stop the Holocaust because, "Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?" This is the reason why recognizing it as a genocide is so important, even a century later.

"Operation Nemesis", the Armenian campaign of retribution against the genocide's perpetrators is also an interesting topic. Like Israel's "Operation Wrath of God", but more effective.

Posted in: Gold-medal project: Judo seeks solutions in police training See in context

when all else fails.

The problem is, when you teach cops that every single interacting with the public is a life and death situation, they aren’t going to treat lethal force as a last resort, but rather a first response. Lethal force is supposed to be used as a final option to protect ones life, not as a first response threat to gain compliance. About 5-10 cops are killed every year in traffic stops, out of over 30 million traffic stops, yet cops are taught that they must treat everything as a potentially lethal battle. It’s why so many cops’ pull people over and the first thing they do is draw their guns. But when you are trained to see every interaction as a life-threatening engagement, you tend to ACT like it is. When the only tool you're given is a hammer, every problem suddenly becomes a nail.

Hardly anything about this "pioneer feminist" in her bio during the war years, when she was in her 40s and 50s. If Japan ever needed a progressive activist to speak out, it was in this period. But nope. Just a snippet about how she promoted eugenics for the sake of the "Japanese race." Nice.

Im pretty sure she didn’t ‘speak out’, because if she did, she’d have gotten a visit from the Tokko before the words had even left her lips.

Buying into the "Asian" thing? Nobody used that phrase before the CCP adopted it in its propaganda campaign. And the Western media play along.

Heh get a load of this guy. Guess he’s buying into the whole ‘CCP’ thing. The sheep doesn’t even realize there is no CCP because there is no China. ‘China’ or ‘Lie-na’ as we call it, was cooked up by the reptilians so they could keep their subterranean egg-laying caverns a secret from the people. Has anyone ever been to China? I don’t believe so and that’s basically the same thing as checking if it’s true. One of these days, goofballs like Zaph will wake up to the REAL truth.
