Re: Bones found in Mexican cave

Only 9,000 years old? Barely the day before yesterday in human prehistory. Jim, I am not knocking the importance of this discovery, but I get the impression that human occupancy in the Americas is considerably more recent than in my own corner of the world: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Mungo_r...

Washington's abandonment of the Kurds left them with no other choice but to turn to the Assad government and its Russian backers.

Turkey a NATO member "in name only".

Iraq a client of Iran.

Great stuff eh!

Re: Australian Minister explains where the HIGHEST gun deaths occurred…and it’s not in America

Looks like Trump wants to prevento real discussion about gun violence. Of course he does! Considering where his vores come from it must be politically embarrassing for him to have this dystopian part of the American nightmare challenged. "U.S. President Donald Trump says he's signed a memo directin...

Re: Crimea

Those people who think Crimeans are suffering under Russian oppression, and expect a revolt against Russia, may as well forget it. Crimeans are now better off than they have ever been and would be crazy to want to go back to the Ukrainian failed state. I recently heard a couple of Crimean Russians ...

Re: US Foreign Policy

Precisely what "secular character of the political system" in Syria is Russia saving? No discrimination based on faith or religion. Syrians of all faiths have access to any positions in the Syrian society. As long as they support Bashar al-Assad... :D Sertorio may well be right on this point. The A...

Re: Australian Minister explains where the HIGHEST gun deaths occurred…and it’s not in America

Appealing to a straw man argument doesn't do anything for me NF and again says nothing about the actual cause of school shootings.. Well, these two bar graphs in the link below are no straw man, D...

Re: Russia meddled in U.S. election: George W. Bush

Does anyone know how many elections in foreign countries which the US meddled - and which ones these are?

Gun ownership has always been part of this country [/youtube]
So it seems has gun related violence.

Appealing to hallowed tradition only helps to entrench the problem: not resolve it.
