Posted in: U.S., Asian allies prepare high-seas crackdown on N Korea sanctions evaders See in context

Have to keep the squeeze on NK. They can't be allowed to further develop their nuclear weapons program. NK's reckless and belligerent behavior has to be tamed in order to keep the peace. It appears to be the only method they understand.

Utter idiot. Mentions here he'd been married for 24 years (until recently) but doesn't mention he also has 4 daughters. How to lose your family and job in one fell swoop. Apparently his name has already become a verb in Australia (to do a Barnaby).

Posted in: Trump says arming teachers could prevent school massacres See in context

It really is a stupid idea. Assuming a student manages to bring a gun into a classroom, guess who the first target will be? And after the teacher has been shot dead before having a chance to reach his or her gun, the killer starts shooting students. More guns can not and should not be part of the answer. As with most things in the world, everything revolves around money and the gun makers make a hell of a lot of it. Money is power.

$750 per box. Hmm, are they bomb proof or something? Surely Cambodia would have benefited more from $7.5 million spent on more important things.

Posted in: Abe says gov't needs to ease impact of sales tax hike See in context

At least 10% is easy to calculate. Australia's consumption tax (GST) went from 0% to 10% in one hit. Other countries are in the teens and Japan has gone from 3% to 5% to 8% so 10% is the next logical step. A 500ml bottle of water at a convenience store is still reasonably cheap in Japan at about 100 yen. A bottle of water (600ml) in Australia is something like 300 yen at a convenience store. Yes, wages need to go up in Japan but prices haven't gone up that much in Japan over the past 20 years.

Posted in: Trump backs effort to improve gun background checks See in context

What a sad place the US is. Some people still trying to defend the indefensible. 'Responsible' gun owners (if there is such a thing) keep their guns locked away in a safe place. Not much good when the robbers come bursting in guns blazing! As a comedian once said about gun control, cut all the BS about protection and just say that you love guns.

Posted in: Trump backs effort to improve gun background checks See in context

Actually, the guns themselves probably help cause some of the mental illnesses. Worrying that someone else may have a gun makes some people want to have a more powerful gun and so on until many end up with assault rifles and other ridculously powerful weapons. One could easily argue that that in itself is a from of mental illness.

Good. The judges are saying that Trump's action was unlawful. Isn't unlawful another way of saying illegal? Trump and his big mouth. Will he ever learn?

It really does mean the sanctions are biting if NK has to resort to such methods just to get fuel. They've tested the patience of the world for decades so this squeeze has to continue. They will be forced to make tough decisions about their very existence soon.
