Still, Turkey is the caretaker for this location and if they won't oversea it properly as a Cathedral, perhaps they will as a Mosque.

It has not been a Cathedral for centuries. Atatuerk changed it to a museum, which makes is a sensible compromise that both Christians and Muslims can live with. Turning it into mosque is a massive virtue signalling to the islamists in Turkey, who support Erdogan. You might also want to read up on how Erdogan treats the remaining Orthodox churches in Turkey (hint; not good).

Erdogan is systematically dismantling Kemalism and turning Turkey into an islamist state. No surprise with the Hagia Sophia.... it was a question of time.

She looks like she just needs a big hug. Though, like a praying mantis, I think she would eat you afterwards.

She does look evil. And unlike her brother, she seems slim and healthy too. Scary.

Zaphod: "When is the last time NK detonated a nuke or threatened nuclear war?"

Probably soon after Trump's last fawning over him and giving him whatever else he's always wanted.

Let me remind you: Since Trump met with Kim and Kim started talking about peace, the nuclear test site was dismantled and there have been no more nuclear detonations. (Which would be extreme awkward for the Kim regime, since Kim switched the official rethoric from war to peace.)

So what is your "probably soon" supposed to mean?? Are you saying you did not know that the nuclear test and war rethoric had stopped?

When is the last time NK detonated a nuke or threatened nuclear war?

That has been taken off the table by Trump with his rethoric and much poo-hooed meeting with Kim.

Unsurprisingly, our local Trump haters are completely oblivious to that fact.

Ah so

Not only do you remember incorrectly

I remember very correctly. Do you remember any media worry about Corona during the BLM riots? I do not. I do remember that 2000 NY health professionals signed a paper saying that protesting for BLM is more important than any infection.

The Corona scare came back to the media when Trump had his rally.

It is all politics ueber alles.

While the press is hyperventilating about "infections", hoping that the economy gets shut down, the CDC confirms that death rates are falling and will soon be below the level where this is considered an epidemic.

The surge is making some Americans hesitant to return to public spaces and patronize businesses despite President Donald Trump's efforts to downplay the risks.

err, really? I remember the media and even health officials being fully onboard with mass gatherings with zero social distancing, as long as it was about BLM and Antifa. The press is addressing a readerhip with the attention span of a garden slug.

lostrune2

Not anymore. Because Bolsonaro has been promoting it, that increased demand with supplies limited, so the price has been going up. 

Got any source for that claim? I didnt know that people world-wide listen Bolsonaro as a drug advisor. And fact is, since it can be manufactured generically, there is no big profit for big pharma in this one, so unsurprisingly they are not promoting it.

And the fake media is only invested in this issue because Trump mentioned it. Trump could recommend drinking water, and the fake media would cackle against that.

Unbending, uncompassionate, hard-line right-wing ideology.

How exactly do you define "hard-line right-wing ideology"? As far as I can see, Trumps "ideology" is pretty much that of the traditional Democrat party (of which he was a member) before they went crazy and extremist.

Does "hard-line right-wing" simply mean "anything that disagrees with the current PC talking points?" It certainly seems like that. Would be nice if you could actually explain instead of just calling names.

Miss Oikawa

 In my home country you might read of an angry ex-husband attacking the family, but not a mother callously abandoning children like this.

That only reflects on what the media chooses to report. Like the selective reports about police violence in the US, which paint a completely different picture than the actual statistics.

You would have to look at the statistics, not the press articles, to get an idea what happens in your country.

Marijuana is a seriously addictive, dangerous drug. 97% of marijuana users go on to use heroin, meth or cocaine.

Tricky question. A lot of Westerners flock to Thailand every year, though they can get a lengthy jail time there if they say anything inpolite about the Thai king. But they do not complain about democracy in Thailand.

It is pretty easy to avoid talking about the Thai king.... he is not omnipresent and directly involved in politics like the CCP in China. And at least the previous one was well respected across the population. Hopefully the next one will be too.

Really no comparison to the CCP, which has no intention to die or abdicate.

No send your thanks to the Libyan people. They rose up against his personality cult and his oppression. NATO helped them do so. Gaddafi was a terrormonger, he was a brat who loved to see people die. 

Oh, so you are in favour of the Iraq invasion now? Because by every metric, Saddam was infinitely worse than Gaddafi, who had stopped his nuclear program and sworn off supporting terrorism.

Yes true, and they are in the same region. Very close, and the destabilization of the region through the invasion of a sovereign nation - Iraq 

You can keep harping on it, but Iraq does NOT excuse the destruction of Libya by the Obama/Clinton regime.

Once again, American right-wind actions are shown to have made the planet a significantly worse place. 

If you want to call the Obama/Clinton government right-wing, fine with me. I see no relevant difference between the warmongers of the neocon and neolib persuation.

Anyway, the Libya disaster is directly a result of the Obama/Clinton actions.

Which wouldn’t have happened if Bush hasn’t destabilized the region by invading and destroying Iraq based on lies about WMDs that didn’t actually exist.

Not true. Libya is far away from Iraq, and when Clinton and Obama illegally murdered Gaddafi and destroyed Libya, the Iraq situation was stable.
