Does anybody think the recent developments will actually help N. Korea get whatever it is they want?

It worked under Bill Clinton, Bush Jr., and under Obama, and his Secretary's of State - H. Clinton and Kerry.

Iran learned this lesson well:

Sanctions and UN Condemnations, with no creditable threat of force. Will allow them to become Nuclear Powers. With a 'delivery system'.

I'm aware of the death penalty for apostasy.
How do they do tracking down their apostates?
And how does Daesh do at tracking down its deserters?

Did an internet search, and asked a couple of persons with some knowledge, regarding this question.

There was no information, nor knowledge, regarding Daesh capabilities.

Still believe 'apostates' will have to live in fear.

I'm just ready to see how New Hampshire plays out. I think Trump is ahead, but as we've seen, polls don't always translate in the end, and it will be interesting to see how Cruz and Rubio do, too.

There's been criticism that Trump is a little distant in his campaigning style, and I think that might be why people supposedly committed to him in polls aren't turning out in reality.

Perhaps those that rarely, or never vote:

Rarely, or ever... vote.

There is an integrity thing, I would not but a used car from that person


Exactly.

Him and others.

Where are the Great, or at least Good Leaders, as we had in the past?

Does the current title apply to the thread subject?
Maybe.
My two cents. I try not to use any of those terms at all. Many of my neighbors and students where I now am would meet the "requirements" of at least one of those designations.
I deal with them as individuals and call them by their first names.
Not too long ago, I mentioned that I was once mistaken for a Mexican in the past 6.5 years ... by a Mexican! He wanted me to sing Feliz Navidad with him for karaoke. (His name was Sergio or something close to that. Of course, at karaoke, as in many places, I go by what I go by here, Sarge.)
I am 75% English/Irish and 25% German. All I can think of is perhaps my German ancestors were from southern Germany, close to Austria and therefore close to Italy.

Sarge...

Probably not. But an interesting diversion.

Re: Background... Forgetting the DNA

50% Italian (father), 25% Swedish (maternal grandfather), 25% Polish Jew (maternal grandmother).

Trump may (hopefully will) self-destruct.

But...

These, and other silly attacks. And not understanding why he is popular. IE: Describing his supporters as (fill-in the negatives). From a position of a smug, and an incorrect belief in ones superiority:

Are contributing to his campaign.

There are rumors the IS killed a 22 year old Belgian Muslima, accusing her of witchcraft. I couldn't find an English article on the internet. The Belgian government is investigating the case.
http://www.knack.be/nieuws/wereld/belgische-vrouw-in-syrie-onthoofd-door-is-federaal-parket-informeert-zich/article-normal-655357.html

Here is an article in English.
http://www.brusselstimes.com/belgium/5030/a-belgian-decapitated-for-sorcery-by-the-islamic-state
Doesn't say much but I wonder why so many European muslims join Daesh.
Regreting and leaving/deserting Daesh means death penalty and often decaptition.


How well does Daesh do with tracking a particular individual not already held captive?

And live in fear.

Muslim extremists believe in a death penalty (after torture?), if one leaves the Islamic Faith.

As a White person of Latino Heritage (Italian Heritage is truly Latino):

Last time I heard Latino was Latin-American with the American meaning First Peoples of central and south America. So Italian gets the Latin part, so what tribe is your First People's part? Aztec? Inca? Maya? ??

Since my Wife is of Hispanic Heritage (Latin America). Spoke Spanish while growing up.

Adding our Hispanic, Latino (Italian), Black DNA beginnings, Spanish Speaking Children....

OMG!!! I'm starting to 'think' and babble as a Tribalistic Left Winger!!!

I can stop. Can they?

Assange and UNWGAD even have the nerve to call his hiding in Equador's embassy for "arbitrarily detained" and should get compensation.

Assange is neither ethical nor moral.

It is quite probable that this is the same for all these documents.

WinterKnight...

Substitute "possible" for "probable".

In decades past. I worked closely with the FBI. Concerning areas of 'Mutual Interest'. And still have personal relationships with some.

No... I have no 'inside' knowledge regarding the emails.

However... Understanding the thinking and culture of the FBI:

Anyone believing "probable" regarding Guilt or Innocence. Are only basing their judgement upon their political orientation.

BTW: The problem for Hillary, and the others. Is General David Petraeus.

MajorKong...

Do agree with you regarding the artificial construct, regarding White.

Why White people of Hispanic Heritage, are not considered White. Is puzzling.

As a White person of Latino Heritage (Italian Heritage is truly Latino):

I am proud of both.

BTW: My DNA discloses a beginning in present day Somalia.

I am also proud of my Black (hopefully Warrior) beginnings.

So how much smoke is there in the Republican camp then.
Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice used private accounts for classified emails

#1 - Neither ran for President.

#2 - Must be the same outcome for them and Hillary, as Director of the CIA: General David Petraeus.

Sentenced to two years probation and $100,000 fine.

WinterKnight...

What is the difference?

WinterKnight...

Do you wish me to continue responding Sirius B silliness?

The only silliness here is another retiree with nothing better to do than play word & mind games with a keyboard.

#1 - What do you have against a "retiree".

#2 - I am now accusing you of Retireeism.

WinterKnight...

I do apologize for responding with the same silliness that Sirius B uses.

My bad.

[quote]Is the problem Washington?
When asked if they trust the government, 89% of Republicans and 72% of Democrats say "only sometimes" or "never",

Mostly a very real understanding of any power.

Americans don't trust The Left, The Right, The Republicans, the Democrats, The International Capitalists.

When any of the above say Trust Us.

Americans say BULL SH..!!!!

Yes... Americans do understand.

I'd like to known the percentage of Americans that hold the same view as you.

If it it is high enough, it will make me wonder: - WHY the hell aren't you doing something about it instead of sitting behind a keyboard[/quote]

Voting?

Silly street demonstrations are meaningless. They only 'harden' positions.

I think most of Trump's support come from people who don't vote. Never have and never will, but they always complain about the government.

Possibly correct.

We will see what happens in New Hampshire, and more importantly, South Carolina.

Nevada is a Caucus State.

They seem to have missed the problem: Opinion presented as News.

Incorrect.

They do understand, and also distrust the News Media power.

Another example of Americans telling another 'Trust Us' Power:

BULL Sh..!!!!
