If anyone has more info on how ISIS managed to recruit or turn this guy (going by the note he had) I'd be interested. To my knowledge this is the first ISIS managed or inspired attack on the US mainland. This is a dangerous precedent, and can be an inspiration to other nutjobs, much like in Europe. I'm loath to say this, but I gotta call a spade a spade. I have many Muslim friends (very close

183. BUT...
I read through the chargesheet, all 12 counts of indictment, and they include tax evasion, lying to the FBI, working as an undisclosed lobby of the Ukrainian (pro-Russian) government, not disclosing the $75M in payments, money laundering, etc. BUT. All of this happened long before he started working for the Trump campaign. I could not find any overlap in the dates cited. Deep

Hi Brian, I wanted to clarify that mods do not let their personal political views cloud their judgement in interpreting GHMB policies, regardless of their personal beliefs. Having said that, I have always wondered why you write in the iambic pentameter... Deep :)

The Trump admin announced (after this speech) that the US will share EMALS tech with India for Aircraft Carriers (there is only 1 AC in the USN right now with this tech - the Ford class of ACs, I think.) And it was considering the sale of 100 Predator drones with Hellfires. the sale of 22 Apache 64Ds has already been cleared. We live in interesting times... Deep

SecState Tillerson seems to think so. Yesterday, he outlined a "100 year" partnership with India for security, trade, and promotion of a global "rules based order" in the region he termed as the Indo-Pacific, going as far as to state that these 2 countries form the "bookends of stability" in the region. In the next breath, he severely criticized China for expansionis

There is absolutely no reason to pick a fight with Iran right now, especially when the agreement is holding. Why break something that was recently completed and is working, and Iran is complying? And does the US really need another confrontation with another regional power in a tinderbox area? Aren't NK, South China Sea, Russia in Ukraine, ISIL and Afghanistan enough headaches - or do we need

What Eli states is pretty much a description of the French and American Revolutions. It will happen that way, although I don't think it will happen here. But, that is how it happens. When things break down, that's how it goes. Don't laugh at it, please. It resonates in history. Deep

Hi Mike, Can we please look for solutions together on this thread instead of reverting to well conditioned habits of personal sword-fencing? It's a waste of bandwidth and time. Please don't take this as a Mod warning, just a personal request. I'll go there if I have to, although I usually don't except in extreme cases. Archaic actually had a valid question. Let us respond to educate if

No one believes s/he's a bad person. We are all good people. We want to solve the world's problems. Can we come together to do so? Forget the Republican or Democrat bullshit. Forget the Tory or the Liberal. Forget the left or right in any country. Let's look at this objectively. How can we prevent the loss of lives in the future, using legality in a moral way? Deep

Thanks for the responses so far. I appreciate the fact that they were relatively balanced and did not take an extreme partisan position. For everyone else, I admit that I support strict gun control when it comes to lethal semi-automatic or automatic weapons - they are designed to suppress fire - and only cops or the military have the need for that. For small arms, I'm not sure. I've never owned a

“Jonny had a gun…” Yes, I realize that the gun control debate is a serious one, with the 2nd amendment at stake. While I strongly believe in the repeal of the 2nd amendment at this time, it is an impractical wish in the current political climate. The 2nd amendment was meant to ensure a battlement against foreign hostile aggression or a hostile government (read it.) It was never meant to promot

It's important to distinguish between the two. The statues were relocated to other universities or museum-like sites where they can still be seen. I'm okay with that. The point is the difference between the display of history and the glorification of a viewpoint. A monument is glorification. A display is education. I would disagree if they were destroyed, in spite on the fact that most of

That is a reasonable answer. I think statues represent or perhaps capture history in a way nothing else can. But that is a difference of opinion we can agree to, perhaps. Deep

Frankly, I'm in two minds about this. As an avid fan of history, I cringe when historical statues and monuments are torn down, whether I subscribe to their philosophy or not. I practically cried when the Taliban used mortars to destroy the Bamiyan Buddhas - 2,000 year old statues built into the side of the Himalayas - each statue 3 times the size of the ones on Mt. Rushmore - although I'm not a b

Everytime I start to really worry about the direction of American foreign policy (withdrawal from the Paris Accords, TPP, MIA at NATO, etc.) all initiated by the mad king Donald Targaryen, 3 names pop into my head that make feel better: Kelly, McMaster, Mattis. These are good men. They make me feel better. Deep

Now, EMailGate is not to be confused with FontGate. Different country. Calibri? Really? Do the leaders of Pakistan have the calibri to lead the country? In short, the papers and evidence with date-stamps filed by the Sharif family in the Panamagate investigation have a date of 2006. They use the font Calibri. The problem is, the font calibri was not introduced by Microsoft till 2007. Ergo, for

Agreed. Here is where it gets tough. There are only 2 options. The sanctions regime has not worked. China and some neighbors of NC will not get on board, and in spite of of the "coal sanctions" that China imposed on NC recently, their (NC's) economy grew at 40% year over year for the last quarter. Sanctions will not work any more. The past strategy of strategic patience has been

In John Le Carre’s 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,' a somber George Smiley asked Bill Haydon, a former colleague at MI6 why he betrayed his country and became a Soviet mole. “It was,” Haydon replied unhesitatingly, “an aesthetic choice as much as a moral one. The West has become so ugly.” I was reminded of this because it is as if history is beginning to come full circle and this same sentiment

QuoteDrew Why do you think the fleur de lis is on both sides of those closed doors? Hi Andrew, I frankly have no idea. Fleur de Lis is not common in India, and I don't recall seeing it on many Indian sculptures. So I'm just as puzzled as anyone else. Who knows how far back this symbol dates to, and what ancient connections there were between the esoteric traditions of India and Europe? It w

There has been steady trend that has largely gone unnoticed by the MSM since Trump took office. Trump has consistently devolved tactical and some strategic decision-making power to the military, without the need to seek Presidential approvals. Some of these decisions include the power to make troop level deployment decisions in war theaters. I support empowering the military, and feel Obama sh
