Ukrainian Opposition Headquarters Stormed By Security Forces

Ukrainian Opposition Headquarters Stormed By Security Forces

Commented Dec 9, 2013 at 13:57:25 in World

“They look like the government forces that 'disbanded' Occupy protesters around the US. Government/State reaction to protest seems to be the same or similar around the world.”

darthconservatus on Dec 9, 2013 at 15:34:27

“Dear lord - I went to the occupy Detroit debacle and it was the most filthy and ideologically disjointed example of lunacy I have ever seen. The garbage and filth was overwhelming - literally. Most significantly was it wasn't really much of a rally as it was a bunch of high-ons hanging out with very bizarre - and again severely disjointed - signs; including some idiotic, self described, Stalinists and Maoists. They were there for days wallowing in their filth and I didn't see the cops give them the time of day - nor did the media because it would have embarrassed the left”

“Lip service from Obama ... while Obama probably did support the cause of ending apartheid he is the complete opposite of Mandela who was a socialist/communist and who supported the violent overthrow of the South African government.”

brotherskeeper on Dec 7, 2013 at 13:05:21

“So the man most responsible for establishing true democracy in the RSA is a communist? Do some reading. Mandela always denied he was a communist. He nationalized no industries after becoming president and created the truth and reconciliation commission which investigated crimes by Both the former regime And the ANC. He further stated publicly that he regretted turning to armed resistance. You're spouting the apartheid regime's propaganda.”
Iran Has No Plan For Nuclear Talks With Israel

Iran Has No Plan For Nuclear Talks With Israel

Commented Nov 30, 2013 at 07:16:34 in World

“Iran has complied with international law, signed the NPPT and allowed UN inspections, it is not doing whatever it wants. The government of Israel has always done as it pleased and continues to do so today.

Israel has always displayed an unwillingness to engage in meaningful diplomacy but chooses to strike violently if it even vaguely perceives another country is doing something Israel doesn't approve of. It has no place at a table where government representatives are striving to attain a peaceful agreement.”

Iran Has No Plan For Nuclear Talks With Israel

“Why should Iran discuss anything with Israel? Israel dropped bombs on Iraq and Syria without repercussion and represents the biggest threat to peace in middle east. In addition to having bombed its neighbors Israel has an illegal stockpile of a few hundred nuclear bombs and refuses to permit UN inspections of their WMDs. As if that isn't enough, Israel has not disputed that it is responsible for the assassinations of nuclear scientists.

In contrast Iran has signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty which gives it the right to develop nuclear energy as an alternative to oil. Whatever else Iran is or isn't they are not in the wrong here and they have every right to defend themselves from the violence driven Israeli government.”

Robert Eckert on Nov 29, 2013 at 17:15:09

“"Iran has signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty which gives it the right to develop nuclear energy" in exchange for submitting all of its facilities to thorough inspections to assure that it develops no weapons. As long as it does not comply with that requirement it has no rights at all.”

Lorne Newman on Nov 29, 2013 at 14:10:09

“Why should Iran act like grownups? That is the price for being part of the global community. If they want to act like hysterical children then maybe they should be treated that way.”

Jaysonrex on Nov 29, 2013 at 14:02:58

“It is tough to carry on an exchange of opinions when HuffPost, true to its tradition, wants to censor every single comment that goes on the air. Maybe this rag should follow the example of serious and reputable publications and simply do away with the censorship. Or am I wrong?”

Jaysonrex on Nov 29, 2013 at 14:00:19

“Actually, you are right "OrangeSalad". Iran should go ahead and do what it wants. When the time comes, Israel will also go ahead and do what it wants. The old quid pro quo. It is important that no Muslim or anti-Semitic Christian complains when Israel strikes. That is all. And have a great day.”

Love Levity on Nov 29, 2013 at 13:09:59

“Religion poses the biggest threat to the middle east. If it wasn't for religion, there would be peace.”

groucho42 on Nov 29, 2013 at 13:08:46

“" Israel dropped bombs on Iraq and Syria without repercussion."

Perhaps you could explain the "repercussions" received by the Arabs for rejecting UNR181 and waging a war against Israel's existence in direct violation of the UN Charter? Iraq and Syria are still in that state of war they declared in 1948. That you can't demand the Arabs unconditionally end the war they unconditionally declared and unconditionally wage is an example of why the war continues.

Meanwhile, a claim that it's ok for Iran to violate the NNPT because somebody else has not signed it is not rational.”

The U.S. Health Care System Is Terrible, In 1 Enraging Chart

Commented Nov 23, 2013 at 08:28:32 in Business

“We've known all of this for years. Other developed countries spend less than half of what we do while providing full medical coverage for their citizens. Even if we didn't have medicare in place we could emulate the system in a country like France and cut our spending in half.
Obamacare is Romneycare rewritten by health insurance industry lobbyists. This is why there have been surprises for Dems who supported and passed the legislation, they didn't know what was in the laws.
And for all those who say they don't want the government making decisions about their healthcare they already have the insurance companies making decisions about how their doctors practice medicine.

Unfortunately the corporations run our country while we pretend that isn't true.

The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.
