Posted in: Japan's military sees record spending: Nikkei See in context

It's sending a message to Korea and China to kindly ratchet down the rhetoric a bit. I also noticed the four Escort Class (Helicopter Carriers my hide) Carriers are V/STOL capable in a pinch. Which China has to be nervous about, as they have only one sorta working one ATM

Posted in: One third of Americans believe police lie routinely See in context

the problems is we have too many laws. A Law at the end of the day can be enforced with up to and including lethal force. If we started pairing down the unneeded laws, this would not be as problematic

Posted in: For world's police, force of the law meets the law of force See in context

A gun is a tool (for killing). No more. no less.. It is the training and psychology behind using that tool that is problematic at best. U.S. Police really do need to dail it back a bit as they have gotten really gun happy of late.

OTOH, there are elements within society which are not reasonable by any stretch of the imagination and that only a show of force will bring compliance. They are not a large subset, but they are enough to be of concern.

Ideally, Police should be able to use a level of restraint in the use of force. But when the legal system has been twisted into a pretzel so bad by what I like to call Insane Troll Logic Law to the point where shooting the perp is going to cause less problems for a LEO than the other less lethal options, then we do have a severe problem

I'm glad that the new 'Gojira' film went over well. Hollywood can do things right, when it actually digs in and tries. I rather liked the film myself as well :)

Posted in: Chicago stunned by outbreak of weekend shootings See in context

Not surprising at all. On a lot of Holidays, the thugs come out and decide to try to off one another. Chicago has been a pest hole for quite sometime, in spite of it's gun laws.

As to drug cartels being armed without the US? well they could simply bribe the local Mexican LEO's. They pretty much run the northern mexican states anyway, protestations to the contrary not withstanding. But I will agree on the drug problem funding...we DO have a problem here in the States

long sigh of resignation

Okay, as much of a shock as this might be to to people, technically there is NO international law in the strictest sense, as there are no laws other than what countries have mutually agreed to abide by. There is no overarching enforcement mechanism to enforce the international agreements like you would a national law. National will operate in their own self interest, depending on what they perceive it to be. And what they can get away with. No more no less.
