Posted in: Results in Afghanistan suggest long U.S. mission See in context

Funny how we always preach and boas about training and arming the Afghan military, but never when it counts like helping actual Afghan civilians in terms of food, infrastructure, jobs, healthcare. What's the point in building their military, when they can just run away or defect when it suits them? How about instead bring up the Afghan people and take away their incentive to join ISIS.

Posted in: Boston museum cancels 'Kimono Wednesdays' after racism protests See in context

The article fails to mention WHO the protesters were or WHY they thought Kimono Wednesdays were racist. Saying that it was imperialistic or yellow face isn't enough. What part of it is imperialist or racist?

100 years ago, nobody thought it possible that almost 100% of energy would be generated from petroleum, therefore the opposite must also be possible. Almost 100% of energy being generated from clean sources of energy not having anything to do with fossil fuels.

What a perfectly rational human being. I'm sure by her logic, if a man is unsure about his abilities in being a husband, the rational thing to do would be for him to throw his wife out the window.

Posted in: Luxembourg PM first gay EU leader to marry See in context

Wait, so which is it, was it a same-sex marriage or same-sex union? I don't know about Luxembourg, but in the US the term isn't used interchangeably and are in fact two different things involving differing rights.

And yet we still conduct diplomatic relations with tyrannical regimes that have killed thousands like Uzbekistan. How lovely.

Posted in: How far is Japan willing to go to back U.S.? See in context

"Washington now wants Abe to agree to a “collective defense” arrangement similar to NATO, which would see Japan strike back at an enemy that attacks the United States." Isnt this what caused WW1?

It may not be all bad, but in the short term, it's horrible news for businesses that depend on younger demographics.

Eh. Once the HyperLoop becomes viable, it will end up being faster than maglevs.

Posted in: U.S. says Japan-S Korea tensions distract from N Korea threat See in context

I feel like every other article I read on here is about S. Korea and Japan's war time past. Why. WHY after all this time do they not let these old wounds heal? What does Korea want from Japan? Havent they apologized multiple times in the past already? What else do they want? Money? What else could Japan offer to atone for what they've done? Was what Japan did horrible? YES, absolutely. But that was over 70 years ago. Almost everybody that had a hand in the atrocities and cruel acts are either dead or suffering from Alzeimers. We'd be getting knowhere if the entire western world held a grudge over Germany, hell that grudge holding is what caused WW2 in the first place!! Make peace already. It's fine to remember the past and the people that died, but stirring up emotions for what occurred will get them nowhere. Now Japan's nationalistic government is culpable in this too. Their actions are only fanning the flames. I also can't understand why there are Japanese people who simply wont accept that their ancestors committed barbaric acts. It's not that hard. You inform yourself of them. You learn from them. You reflect on them and then you accept that what happened happened and can't be changed, then try to do good to distance oneself from that past through mutually beneficial acts.

Posted in: Hollywhere? Los Angeles unable to halt film exodus See in context

As a California resident, I wish there was another way. I'm proud of my state's history in the film and television industry and its' plentiful history. But I think at the end this is probably a good thing. I mean, sure it means jobs being cut down in California in place of other tax friendly places, but come on. Once these bastards end up having to pay their taxes, they take their toys and leave like a bunch of children. I think we're setting an example that everybody has to pay their taxes. Now if we could just extend this ideology to the oil, gas and corn industry I think that'd be great.
