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

Milo, the trouble is that the gun lobby has too many members of Congress beholden to it for any serious move to "call in the guns" (i.e. disarm the nation - to bring the US into line with every other OECD member state) initiated by the executive wing of their government to ever succeed. Most Americ...

Re: Bones found in Mexican cave

You are quite correct, neverfail. But you have been aced out - Eurasia had humans long before Australia. Well sure, how else could they have gotten there? But it's still interesting that humans settled Australia as long as 60,000 years before they got to the Americas. Too right Steve. But what a tw...

Re: "It's Moscow's chessboard now." !!!

Well said Jim. It will still take time and a lot of bloodshed before this civil war in Syria has run its course; But with the Kurds on his side along with Hezbollah and the Russians, I cannot see how Assad can lose (barring direct military intervention by Israel - which would likely drag the USA in ...

"It's Moscow's chessboard now." !!!

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.

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 ...
