IE: China.
Awaiting their 'Boots On The Ground'.

That mite not be far off Clyde
China is rebuilding the old silk road through Pakistan and Afganistan
They will be able to go from China straight to the Indian ocean somewhere near the border of Iran and will only take 36 hrs to get there in stead of at the moment only getting there by ship which takes a week i think.

Yes Glenn. But this time with an extension all the way to Africa.
They see business oppertunities that the western World fail to see.
Who are the loosers in this game?

China's problem...

Others Control their Energy, and The Seas.

They need a huge International Navy, and International Logistics, to matter.

It will take, with 100% effort and money: A matter of additional decades, and Treaty's with their Enemy's.

Since they do not Control the Means of Their Wealth: They can fall very quickly, and they know this.

I hope.

These guys and gals should not be Officers. Period.

Only adolescents believe Peoples and Organizations are, or can be, perfect.

Most people, thankfully, mature beyond adolescence.

...

As most everyone who posts here is very far removed from the ghetto and attitudes of the ghetto it can be very hard to understand how much depression and lack of self worth is in that attitude. You might ask yourself why it was called the Great Depression and if that might have anything to do with the ghetto

...

Speak for yourself. I lived and worked in the ghetto for nearly 20 years. I had these issues up in my face on a daily basis.


Same here. I grew up in a neighborhood just a few steps above trailer-park trash. My mother always tried to give off the impression we were more well-off than we were. But I am quite familiar with the atmosphere and attitudes of the environment.


I'll one-up that. I grew up in a trailer park.
C'mon, Dull and Clyde, let's hear you now.

Sarge...

Very unthinking, and clueless opinion of others, outside your Cloistered 'Thinking'.

Your adolescent 'Button Pushing', only works with those who share your 'Belief System'.

Could you, and others who share your 'Thinking', please enter the real, non-adolescent world?

Awaiting your usually Intelligent and Mature reply.

With the fall of Ramadi and once again the Iraqi army running away allowing ISIS to now control 3 major city's

Will the west have to send in the troops , as the airstrikes are not working .

And not only sending them into Iraq but Syria as that is the main stronghold of ISIS

Real question (leaving out ethics and morality)...

Excepting Nuclear Weapons: In whose National Interest, does their problems truly effect? Yes, we have the ability to 'fence them in'.

Answer: Those who have no alternatives, but to import their energy. IE: China.

Chicago is........

Chicago. Always has been. And probably always will be.

You expect any politician to be corrupt ...

Then there is a Chicago Politician ...

At least the past Democrat Chicago Politicians took care of the city. They were competent.

The present Democrat's?

Many systems before have not been great for people, but not one has come this close to destroying the very ecosystem we depend on to live.
Have any of those other systems been in use long enough to have a chance to do so?

Let's then go back, before the Industrial Age.

A wonderful disease free, abundant food, long lived Human's time.

Sounds great!

Well this is horrific.

Homan Square detainee: I was sexually abused by police at Chicago 'black site'

Chicago, isn't that where Obama got his political start?

Sounds about like Bill Cosby and date rape. Multiple accusers and more coming forward every day.

Just add in some asset forfeiture laws and now you have a full story of corruption.

Time will tell how much they are able to cover up.

Question is - Why so many refugees?
What is the problem with their Home Culture, Religion, Economy, Government?
'My brother's keeper' is a nice Religious thing, but...
It is not up to your country, my country, nor other countries, to solve their problems.
We can neither afford the monetary, nor cultural impact,

For instance.
Four years war in Syria.
The brutal violence has forced over 3.9 million people - vulnerable children, women and men - to flee their homeland. Half of them are children, and many are difficult traumatized.
Over 10 million desperate people displaced from their homes inside Syria.
War casualties have seen their homes destroyed by bombs and relatives killed. They have lost everything they own. Cities lie in ruins. They are in urgent need of help!
UNHCR is working around the clock to provide them fleeing protection, shelter and emergency assistance such as food and water.
It is the worst humanitarian crisis in modern times. The needs are enormous.

Read the numbers. 1 million people killed per year.
Once this was a reason to start a World War!

They are in their own Cultural, and Religious war.

Europe was also engaged in the throes of the same, centuries ago.

Could any 'outsider' have stopped, or helped Europe?

No. Europe had to internally 'work it out', after much, much, bloodshed.

Unfortunately, today is the same.

Of course not.
There is already problem finding jobs for europeans.
10% unemployment in average in Sweden, 25% unemployment for Young people.
Most of them are immigrants!
A massive immigration doesn't help.
But where should all the refugees go?
Antarctis?

I see BIG problems coming up...
To soon for my liking.

Mad Max: Fury Road enrages Men's Rights Activists who claim they are being duped into watching 'feminist propaganda'

I was already looking forward to seeing this movie tomorrow. Now I am even more excited! I shall let you all know if it is indeed Feminist Propaganda as promised.

As always:

One side is right, and the other wrong.

Until one matures, and understands, regarding many things:

One side may only be partially right, and the same for the other.

In the end, this argument that 'Capitalism sucks, but everything else sucks more' is not a very good argument. If capitalism sucks, then get rid of it, because its not good to have a system that sucks. Okay, so any of the tried alternatives are worse. Cool, so you know what you don't have to try again. But surely there are more alternatives than communism and socialism. So yeah that column was worthless trash.

Martin... Re: Your Post above.

You are in a Fantasy world. As all persons of your 'thinking' are.

Where did I sat 'Every alternative' is bad. No Place of course.

Only in your 'thinking'.

Just some questions:

Is it true that some alternatives to Capitalism, are worse than Capitalism?

Of course they are/were. You disagree?

Where is the apology, or at least an acknowledgement, of the 10's of millions murdered, by Anti-Capitalist 'Solutions'?

No where.

I believe one of the greatest, and true, statements is 'Workers of the world unite; you have nothing to lose but your chains'.

Sorry to burst your, and others, unthinking, and worse, Ideological Beliefs. But being Anti-Capitalist, and Pro-Worker: Does not mean I should accept your Secular 'Religion'.

I do understand that your Cloistered, and Monastic Universe, will not understand.

Again: I do not apologize for committing Secular 'Blasphemy' against your, and others, 'Belief System'.

More than 750,000 people have received asylum in the European Union since 2008, with Germany and Sweden consistently taking in more asylum seekers than any other countries.

Germany took in 47,555 asylum seekers last year, 82 percent more than the year before. Sweden accepted 33,000 applicants, up 25 percent on 2013.

Italy approved just ten fewer applicants than France, which granted asylum to 20,640 people last year, a rise of 27 percent year on year.

Syrians accounted for 37 percent of the beneficiaries of asylum protection, followed by Eritreans (eight percent) and Afghans (eight percent).

The figures come as the EU’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini appeals for UN backing for Europe’s plan to confront the Mediterranean migrant crisis by using military force against smugglers.

This year alone, more than 1,800 people have drowned when boats run by migrant smugglers have capsized in the Mediterranean, a 20-fold increase over the same period last year.

Already 2015 is shaping up as the deadliest ever for refugees seeking to reach Europe through the Mediterranean.

Does Europe have a History, and Culture, of assimilating these new people over 2-3 generations?

[quote]I think you are forgetting that everyday there are people who are trying to take away all these rights that we fought for. Not one of these things occurred because 'benevolent capitalism' gave them too us. Pretty much all of them were fought for and in a lot of cases people died so we could have them. Exploitation has gotten harder because people stood up and said "no, this is wrong".[/t.quote]
Yes, but my point is that its not enough to just stand up and say that something is wrong. There need to be alternatives for people to use that are better than the thing that is wrong. Otherwise you are just telling people to stop earning money in a specific way and thats not helping them.

This is true, but the first step is to admit it is wrong rather than finding ways to justify it.

As an Anti-Capitalist, I do see all the problems.

Acknowledging is the easy part. Not the 'solution'.

We have see the Horrors of some Anti-Capitalist Ideological 'solutions'. Not only in the last century. But still in the present.

The time for stomping feet, and yelling "This is wrong", is long past.

When will the Ideologues apologize to the ten-of-millions of innocents there 'Solutions' murdered, and are still murdering.

What we need is hard nosed practical peoples Solutions.

We humans have survived for thousands of years handling food and knows whats bad or good.
Thats why we have a nose.

Shame some people can't keep theirs out of where it is not wanted.

So are you by any chance suggesting that the OP's opinion is not wanted in their own thread?

I'll answer, if you don't mind.

Saying you disagree with an Opinion, or a Philosophy, doesn't mean one wishes to censor them, or they are "not wanted".

Why would you, or anyone else, believe that?

Could you please explain.

I assume you and I do not read "Shame some people can't keep theirs out of where it is not wanted" quite the same to me it does not say " I disagree with your opinion" it says, "Your opinion on anything is not worth you posting it"

Which is of course I suppose is a valid comment but as it seem to refer to the original poster of this thread was a little excessive.

Don't believe is was "Excessive".

Just my opinion. Which is just as valid as yours, of course.

I believe people should not be so 'Thin Skinned'. Especially in a Political Forum.

I'm not the one who constantly claims to know what other people are thinking.

Yes you are.

Just my opinion. As your above Post, is your opinion.

This applies to All Leaders, of All Countries.

Maybe it does, but you can't fight the whole world, what is the point.

Buy an island somewhere, declare UDI and live on your own.

Not me.

I understand Human Frailties.

Therefore: Never give Humans, their Organizations, nor Governments, too much power.

Always ends bad.

That goes for cops too.

Of course it does. Why wouldn't Cops, in my quoted Post, be included?

Your thinking, regarding others, is again wrong.

Just my opinion. As you have a right, which you exercise freely, to include your opinion of others.

Correct?
