Pentagon: North Korea Can Likely Build Nuclear Missile That Could Hit U.S.
WASHINGTON (AP) — North Korea may be capable of fielding a nuclear-armed missile that could reach U.S. soil, but because it has not tested such a weapon the odds of it being effective are "pretty darn low," the commander of U.S. forces in South Korea said Friday.
In remarks at the Pentagon, Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti noted that North Korea claims to have such a missile, although some have questioned whether they have achieved all of the key technological breakthroughs, including manufacturing a nuclear warhead small enough for a long-range missile.

Of course North Korea could hit US with nuclear missiles.
No one needs long range missiles to do it.
All you need is a ship with an atom bomb destined to a US Harbor.
LA, San Diego, Frisco.
Boooom!

Then North Korea goes BooooooooooooooooooM!!!!!!!!

Suicide by MAD.

I would agree that even 1/2 a dozen like that was far too many, but I hope you weren't suggesting that there are a significant number? There most certainly aren't in the UK, and I would think not in the States. May well be different in Africa and the Middle East.

California Highway Patrol officers have been sharing explicit photos of female suspects for years as part of a “game,” an officer implicated in the scandal told investigators, court records show.

CHP Officer Sean Harrington, 35, of Martinez, acknowledged to Contra Costa County prosecutors that he had forwarded photos from the cell phone of a woman he had arrested in a DUI case, sent them to his own phone and had shared them with at least two other CHP officers, according to a search warrant filed in Superior Court.

& the rule of law says that if convicted you serve time in prison. What about the victim?

Ah yes, the standard answer when you call people on their populist rhetoric, "what about the victim". Justice is not about the victim, its about the guy having broken societies rules. Therefor, justice is societies answer to those people. Its not to be done in the name of the victim, its to be done in the name of us as a society. Now if you want your sole response to every slight to be brutal vengeance, then clearly the centuries of human progress have been wasted on you. You have not passed beyond the level of mob justice.

Damn, even the Catholic church is more progressive than you on this point.

Or what about when the prisons are full or like this country, close them down? Put the criminals/killers back into society?

When they have served their time, they have served their time. Re-integrate them into society. And guess what, it works. Justice systems that put an emphasis on reintegrating convicts into society show a clear reduction in people getting caught again.


First of all, 'take em out and hang em' was not a lynching... It WAS the rule of law... what the judges used to frequently say after the jury returned a guilty verdict in a murder trial.

The 'assuming a murderer survives multiple police officers emptying their clips into them?' is what happens, frequently, when the perp does not cooperate and obey the police when the police try to arrest the perp for murder.

Neither one is vigilante justice, but the RULE OF LAW.

Replying to you,

In light of your statements about re-integration of criminals into society and compassion and understanding of the criminals, I might amend Sirus B's statement to

Get your head out of those books, step outside, and likely get mugged.


The functions of 'prison':


1. Most important: Protection of society from criminals.
2. Punishment of the criminals.
3. Distant third place: rehabilitation of the criminals.

Now then, the US 'Criminal Justice System' has for a few decades focused on, as you advocate, compassion for and the rights of criminals, and the rehabilitation of criminals and their reintegration into society.

As a RESULT, we get this schizz:

3 IN 4 FORMER PRISONERS IN 30 STATES ARRESTED WITHIN 5 YEARS OF RELEASE

WASHINGTON – An estimated two-thirds (68 percent) of 405,000 prisoners released in 30 states in 2005 were arrested for a new crime within three years of release from prison, and three-quarters (77 percent) were arrested within five years, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) announced today.

More than a third (37 percent) of prisoners who were arrested within five years of release were arrested within the first six months after release, with more than half (57 percent) arrested by the end of the first year.

These findings are based on a BJS data collection, Recidivism of State Prisoners Released in 2005, which tracked a sample of former prison inmates from 30 states for five years following release in 2005.

Rehabilitation & reintegration into society of criminals DOES NOT WORK at all in the majority of cases.

Progressiveism is an evil blight. Justice must be swift, certain, and harsh if it is to effectively deter people from becoming criminals.

Might try:
1. Most important: rehabilitation of the criminals.
2. Protection of society from criminals.
3. Distant third place: Punishment of the criminals.

I suspect that if you teach the criminals how to earn a honest living, they might make an honest living, but if you continue to teach them how to be criminals by having them rot and teach each other their crafts you are going to get massive recidivism.

Of course the prison guards would not like this because it would put more of them out of work.

Guess what, it doesn't work.
A former criminal applying for an employment doesn't get any jobs.
So in a sense all criminals get a life sentence.

Gary i'll start by saying your a prude.

Well, you might be gobsmacked .... (I'm not sure the statute of limitations has run its course)

1 model is not evil she gets payed honest money
2 photographer not evil he also get paid honest money
3 editor not evil he pays good money for it doesn't steal it
4 reader pays honest money to read it and doesn't just buy it for the pic's

Yes, quite. Presumably the prices paid match the scarcity of the goods and services and are fair with all the other economic issues. Of course government could come in and upset the free market economy, but I don't see that as an issue for Page 3.

A prostitutes is not evil also she gets paid good money and is more honest Than some chick at a club there cracking on to guys just to get a free night out or a bloke doing the same thing when both are in a relationship

Oh yeh your in American and prostitution is illegal , and that is evil

why because then crim's run the brothels illegally

Not like here where they are licensed and have to meet public health standards.

Not so in all the USA.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostitution_in_Nevada

In fact i know of a few nice lady's that are married and did it to get some quick money and heaps of it to buy a house or pay for there wedding and there partners knew they where doing it . It's a honest profession

And before the born again's start Jesus married Mary Magdalene according to the da vinci code and wasn't she a pro. before Jesus saved her

And if your married you are not the boss of the household your wife is unless your one of these P####s that wife bash

I think that covers what you where getting at the model is a prostitute right !

No, she isn't, but there are plenty who see her as such, not as a model or an actress.

However in all those 4 points, some feel there is some horrible evil exploitation taking place. I'm not sure why unless they feel that sex is somehow dirty and filthy. We pay to see athletes hit balls. We pay to see magicians make magic. We pay to see actors act. So why is it so damn exploitative evil to see boobs on page 3? Or do they want to see hunks on page 5?

Well I don't agree with everyone piling in on Chris, but I do think there needs to be a little more awareness on his part about difference.

Most education systems were originally set up to favour one segment of society and to further the agenda of the ruling segment of society. In most western societies that would be the rich white man. The left wingers have tried to change this so that education can benefit everyone and provide opportunities for all.

There was a heyday in the past if you were a white male. However, being a white male is not the "norm" or the standard we should all be judged by.

So perhaps people should stop and think before making claims about how much better such and such was/is and analyse if it is better for everyone, or just better for you.

Chris if of his generation and his background. A time when it was assumed that the British white way was the best way for everyone. This was a foundation of the way the British Empire was created.

It wasn't a great model however if you were Irish, Scottish, Welsh, poor working class or of colour. I have been doing a lot of academic reading lately on how this view of the "rightness" of the British way of doing things caused so much suffering and horror amongst the Aboriginals in Canada. I've also been able to contrast this with a lot of similar suffering caused to those back at home who were forced under the English regime to adopt the English world view which Chris often espouses without realising it.

So perhaps Chris and Sirius could step back and recognise that their historic backgrounds are causing this antagonism between them. I suspect that there are many in Ireland who do not think that things were better under English occupation. It might be nice if Chris would step back and realise that his attitude, which he takes for granted as being the correct English way, caused immense suffering across the globe and can be considered antagonistic by those of us that recognise it.

The "English way" is not seen as universally benevolent and a little tact in this area might go a long way. I know that I would get less offended if there were some recognition of this.

You have nearly perfectly described the master / servant relationship. A core issue in the thinking on many issues in US politics, where "tradition" is held as sacrosanct. Why screams of racism fly in the US.

Oh, in case there is any mistake, I'm not saying Chris is racist, just that the thought process of privilege is similar.

I am not sure what part you are objecting too, but if you think it was the Democrats who shut down the government it will be difficult to discuss that issue further.

The democrats are 75% to blame and the Republicans are 75% to blame for the so called "shutdown." There is more than enough blame to go around. It fit perfectly in both their agendas, so it happened.

He'll run away and hide. Stunned that the world is different than when he was in first grade. It was all so simple then. Girls were to be barefoot and pregnant and men went off on great adventures drawing lines in the sand. How self inflated the times were. It is as if the 1960's didn't happen.

Silly is it? With all your so called security & big boy on the block bravado, how is it that this year alone, there have been some serious breaches of security at the White House?

Or was that deliberate so that it can be claimed a "lone wolf nutjob" bumps off the Bimbo that lives there?

It is deliberate so that even more violations of the second, fourth, fifth and fourteenth amendments can be put in place. Scare them enough and they will agree to RFID chips implanted at birth!

Sometimes the chimney breast that the fireplace is in, is classed as a structural wall, so all you can do is to block it off with an air brick left in for ventilation. A lot of people then put a wall mounted electric fire there. Sort of rather defeats the object of blocking it off in the first place really, but we also did it!

Well, since in a lot of places wood fires are illegal due to pollution something gives ....

If you are not aware, the crusades are now and the Zionists and Christians world wide are attacking Islam and must be dispatched by Jihad. At least that is part of the radicalizing that is being taught today by ISIL and others.

It simplifies their propaganda to point out that we sent a couple hundred thousand troops to Iraq and spend $3T trying to overthrow their government. That might have something to do with it.

Could you show some examples of that propaganda?
