And, in regards to the management style: what in Romney's past time in office makes you think that he will carry out a dangerous agenda? He almost didn't get nominated because his time as governor was so liberal, Well, he was the governor of a liberal state and had to adapt accordingly, now that he...

Are they basing that upon what he's saying, or his style of management when he was in office previously? If those two are contradictory, then he is a lousy candidate. However, regardless of how competent Romney might be, what assurances does the world have that he won't usher another era of "A...

I heard it on the World Service, and it was either Business Daily or Global Business but I believe they were interviewing Stephen Roach, so this is probably as good a source as any: http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news ... s-currency

Romney is looking Presidential. Excellent. Over here he is a joke...the guy who mocked an incredibly feelgood and well organised Olympic games. The whole world that lady do an awful job trying to play air guitar to Queen in the closing ceremony, and we can't unsee it. I'm not sure what Romney said ...

Aye, I see where you're coming from, but I don't think that the "better to be hanged for a sheep than a lamb" mentality isn't usually a factor when it comes to mass murder. You've either got cold-hearted terrorists like Breivik, or nut-cases who've snapped and probably want to die on the s...

Or that people are likely to think "well, I was going to kill this person who I hate, but considering the ratio of years in prison vs. bodycount I should probably kill everyone I meet en route too, it makes mathematical sense!"

Well, what did you expect them to do? Change the law just because of him?

It is very unlikely he will ever be released, as I doubt that they will ever consider him *not* a continuing threat after what he did.

Then it will be up to the Israelis to hold the strait! And if they choose not to then the Americans would be hella pissed. I think that Israel might not want to alienate the US. . . . Of course, if Romney were elected they'd probably support it, no matter how short-sighted and insane an option that ...

I imagine that the strait would be relatively quickly *taken* by invading forces if they put their minds to it, but then how long would they have to stay until it was again "permanently" open? Until the entire Iranian military is dismantled? Until every able-bodied man is dead? Iraq and Af...

There's also this little thing that any *sane* world leaders would have to consider when it comes to Iran: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strait_of_Hormuz If there was a war against Iran to destroy its nuclear program they would close the strait, then you'd need to occupy that territory yourself, whic...

I just want a Robin movie starring Joseph Goron-Levitt, dammit.

Thought it was an alright movie, I felt that the pacing was a bit weird at points and was left a bit confused by the decision to spend a good chunk of the movie making a thinly veiled assault on the Bolshevik revolution. . . .

Yeah, they cut that bit out to interview Michael Phelps instead, surprised you hadn't heard about it, I believe it even ended up being discussed on the Daily Show. . . .

Re: London 2012

I hadn't heard anything about that (was out of town for ten days, so I've been out of the loop news wise). What's up? The Chinese people responded massively positively to the tribute to the NHS section in the opening ceremony, so much so that the government has started making statements about how g...
