Posted in: British ex-con, 52, carried out Westminster attack; IS claims responsibility See in context

IS said through its Aamaq News Agency that the London attacker — whom it did not name — was “a soldier of the Islamic State” who “carried out the operation in response to calls for targeting citizens of the coalition” fighting IS in Syria and Iraq.

Not a soldier at all. Just an aging violent man with deep mental issues.

There is no Islamic State.

And why is a terrorist group permitted a News Agency?

Posted in: B-25 bombers to fly over Ohio to honor historic air raid on Japan See in context

The real damage was to the prestige of the Japanese Navy who let the US task force get within bombing distance of the mainland. Initially the Japanese didn't understand where the land based B25s came from.

In an instant the satisfaction of the Pearl Harbor attack was forgotten and Japan realized they were vulnerable. Japan's military dictatorship with support from the emperor exposed their own people to a war with the US. They had seen how bombers were used in Europe to devastating effect. They knew what could happen after the Pearl harbor attack and went ahead.

The British Lions will touring New Zealand this year - that's probably enough good rugby for 2017. Stick with the scheduled match in 2018. That's one year out from the World Cup in Japan, and will be a good measure of how these two excellent teams.

Posted in: Do you think cold calling is an effective sales method? What do you do when you receive one and you don't have time (or the inclination) to listen to the caller? How do you end the call without being See in context

They always call when I'm cooking dinner - I answer the phone, ask them to wait, as I have something on the stove, pop the phone in the top draw of telephone table and continue cooking. They never call back.

Posted in: Outside of Washington, Trump slips back into campaign mode See in context

people that live in coastal areas or what we call the far looney left strongholds those same people that produce the majority of the countries wealth

Probably too busy "producing wealth" to protect the nation's interests - many people from the "red states are just there to harness votes" serve their country and perform this more honourable duty.

Australia hopes to salvage the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) by encouraging China and other Asian nations into the agreement...

The whopper of all government lies was the weapons of mass destruction falsehood. And most of the news media supported it. The government and the media are that crooked, they couldn't lie straight in bed.

The great thing about America, and I'm not American, is that for such a large nation, it can reconfigure quickly and rebound. For any country to do so, it has to focus on itself first.
