P.S. Maybe you don't understand, it's not very clear thing for foreigners, "I am Russian" in Russian language is not fully identical with "I am Russian citizen", often it's more "I am Russian speaking and have Russian mentality".

Yes Igor...

I do understand.

A very real problem with a Airline like Egypt Air low maintenance and years of unrest .


If the planes are that bad how the fu#k do they pass the air worthiness certification that I think planes have to have to operate ?

You really believe it is politically possible to Ground Air Egypt, Air Libya, Air Iraq, Air... Et al.

The Dem's MUST replace Hillary!


I don't think that is going to happen.

Never know.

She might be given an 'offer', she can't refuse.

Begrudging Washington Post poll: Trump 46%, Clinton 44%

And:

Clinton's Lead Over Trump Shrinks to 3 Points: New NBC News/WSJ Poll

In a more hypothetical matchup, Democrat Bernie Sanders leads Trump by 15 points, 54 percent to 39 percent.

Modern Ukrainian history tries to show the Ukrainians have really ancient history. Many years ago Ukrainian artists already knew this.


Correction and addition:
Modern Ukrainian historians tries to show the Ukrainians have really ancient history. Many years ago Ukrainian artists already knew this.

P.S. LOL. It's sarcasm. The "ancient history" of Ukrainians is a nonsense, and this picture of Ukrainian artist, "Adoration of the Magi", with the Ukrainians 17th century clothes and Ukrainian coat of arms, it cause a laugh.

Igor...

Two simple questions -

#1 - Do you believe Ukraine is Part of Russia?

Yes or No.

#2 - Do you believe the Ukrainian People are really Russian?

Yes or No.

Your answers will be illuminating.

You may believe that their are Significant Cultural Differences within Western Europe.
Not really. Especially is one acknowledges other Vastly Different Culture's around the world.
To any 'outsider'. The differences within Western Europe, are similar to the differences between Lutherans and Roman Catholics.
To any 'outsider' of their Religions. The differences are really minor.

Really:)
So why do you think that the collapse of the Europian "Union" is near?
For instance Sweden has a LOT more in common with the US than Greece.
Or Azerbajdzjan for that matter:)

Not really. To this 'outsider'.

If a person from a vastly different culture. Let's say a Japanese, travels Europe.

They would believe the differences among the Europeans, was insignificant.

Having lived, worked, and traveled within many vastly different Cultures around the world. Including Asia, Mid-East, Western Europe. I would agree with that person.

Edit: It would be better to move this, very interesting discussion. To another thread.

What we learned in the 18th century, and today, is this:
European's Don't Trust The People. Peoples Individual Rights must, for Society's Good, be Controlled.

LOL
What history books are you reading?
Russian or former East Germany?
Most European countries today believe in transparency in governments.
Main reason to avoid corruption and mismanagement.
But it also stops all kind of conspiracy theories that the US are so very fond with.
http://www.transparency.org/

Speaking of Western Europe, of course.

As you, as an outsider to American Culture. See and interpret America from a Western European Political, Historical, Cultural Perspective.

Some correct. Some not.

We, as an outsider to Western European Culture. See and interpret Western Europe, from an American Political, Historical, Cultural Perspective.

Some correct. Some not.

21st Century (2008) US Supreme Court Decision upheld that the 2nd Amendment means Individual Ownership of Firearms . Not an 18th, nor 19th Century Decision.
A People must have the means to defend themselves. Either against a criminal, terrorist, or government (internal and/or external).

OK. You mean this.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/District_of_Columbia_v._Heller
The Supreme Court of the United States held in a 5-4 decision that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution applies to federal enclaves and protects an individual's right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.

Still it make no sense to us outsiders that you still keep a legislation that is now outdated in every country but the US!

Janne...

Called the Rule of Law.

Doesn't matter to Japan, China, India, Ethiopia, etc. What doesn't make sense to others.

This 18th Century Document. Also means that 90% of People cannot abridge the Rights of the 10%.

Freedom is chaotic.

Europe made their choices. The USA made their choices.

What we learned in the 18th century, and today, is this:

European's Don't Trust The People. Peoples Individual Rights must, for Society's Good, be Controlled.

American's Don't Trust The Government. The Government's Power must, for Society's Good, be Controlled.

We believe, we are correct. You believe, you are correct.

I find it's strange that the US has a gun law in the constitution.

Janne...

American Culture and Laws are not strange to Americans.

The Foundation of The American Constitution. Was not the European Belief in Setting up a Good System and Placing Good People in Charge.

Americans understood that The People MUST have Power. And the Government MUST be Limited.

The USA is not Europe Light, nor Europe Primitive. Just different from others.

As Japans Culture and Laws are different from...

Actually I know why the US second amendent was founded.
It was when America was in the Revolution back in the 18th century.
The "US" had then no abality to protect it's citizens by army and police.
It's a totality different situation nowadays.

Nope.

21st Century (2008) US Supreme Court Decision upheld that the 2nd Amendment means Individual Ownership of Firearms . Not an 18th, nor 19th Century Decision.

A People must have the means to defend themselves. Either against a criminal, terrorist, or government (internal and/or external).

Just one of the differences from European Culture.

I don't like civilians having weapons in built up areas or as part of their home defense. In a conflict situation, the gun wielders are the main targets, as witnessed by the above incident.

Well, seeing as you are not a US citizen, you do not HAVE to be concerned with our 2nd amendment.
I just love it when posters outside of the US seem to have quick and ready answers for all of our problems.

I would support the 2nd, if it was interpreted as originally planned. In allowing the ownership of weapons for members of the local militia, in the absence of regular armed forces.

Not a member of the militia, then no weapons.

Not the opinion of those who wrote the Constitution.

The Militia is The People. Not part of any Army, Police Force, nor Government.

As upheld by The Supreme Court of The United States.

Perhaps Churchill was correct when he observed:

"two nations divided by a common language"

WinterKnight...

You do seem repeatedly, to misunderstand American English, Laws, and Culture.

The same is not true for the worlds glaciers.
They have lost 40 percent of its ice the last thirty years.

Reversible?

Or do have to prepare, starting immediately, with the consequences?

Clyde since you live in Florida you should brush up on your swimming skills.

All should understand the 'consequences' that are coming, and prepare.

Bought a 'summer house' in the Kentucky Mountains.

Price's should increase quickly.

Hmmm. Moving to Kentucky from Florida that is also a place exposed to the global change in climate...

Not moving permanently, yet.

North America has Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Earthquakes, Volcano's, and awaiting Yellowstone's Massive Volcano Eruption.

The future in Tropical Scandinavia, will probably be more pleasant.

In most situations:

The police will not be able to save your life, the life of your children, nor any innocents.

Tough, Smart and Vigilant people always carry guns when using air transportations.
It's the only way to stop terrorists blowing up planes in mid air!!!!

Nothing to do with a Home Invasion Robbery, Terrorist Attack while Dining, attempting to Kill Children in a School, etc.

The Police will probably not be able to save you, nor your children.

Don't bash Trump for that statement.
Both the Russian and Egyptian governments had also made statements shortly after the event that they thought the odds of it being a terrorist attack were greater than it being a mechanical failure.
They may indeed, all have been wrong.

And you are wrong to take a swipe at Trump for his similar thoughts.

These type of attacks against Trump. Is why he may win.

It makes the attackers appear as foolish as Trump.

WinterKnight............
The two situations are not remotely related in the context of the right to bear arms.

One refers to the ability of an armed citizenry to repel an attack by criminals, terrorists, or hostage takers.

The other is about the interaction between a police force (which in this case, appears to be in error) and an armed citizen.

Michael Funk was armed and in a motorcycle shop, when an armed man came in and took hostages, including Funk.

For whatever reason Funk didn't use his weapon in the shop, but managed to escape and then drew his weapon.

I fail to see your point. entirely.

WinterKnight...

Anyone who has grownup in the streets, and has actively confronted armed criminals:

Understand that all situations and reactions, are different.

A number of outcomes (good or bad). Is very often, meaninglessness regarding the next situation.

What you, I, or anyone else should do in a future situation. With the danger possibly changing every second:

Is your, mine, and all others - 'best guess'.

We can only critique the individual action(s) afterwards.

Individual Freedom is very chaotic.

The Alternative: A Self-Styled Ruling Class Elite, telling and forcing upon, what they believe to be The Inferior People. For their own good, of course.

Usually results, after a period of time. In Enslavement and worse.

In a Truly Lawful Society. 90% of the people (voters) cannot deny the Individual Freedoms of the 10%.

A case of profits above safety?

How old was the airframe?
How often was it serviced?
Was maintenance/upgrades/repairs done to manufacturer/safety regulations?

Yes. We only have to wait for the next Ice Age...
Don't hold your breath.

In the meantime Greenland has become Grayland!

The Jakobshavns glacier's speed has increased dramatically in the new millennium. The kilometer-thick ice moves now 1.5 meters per hour - so fast that you can perceive the motion with the naked eye.

Vikings (The Best!) Colonized Greenland.

They Farmed and Ranched 985 to 1450–1500 CE.
