I watched that report Davy.As much as I don't want to see bullets and bombs fight this movement, I know that sometimes it's required.

I see, it's a war over oil and gas -.

The Iraq war isn't over, nor is the war with Iran.

If gasoline and other petroleum products didn't control the economy then maybe the 'desert' wouldn't be problematic and expanding.

The Ukraine is a good example of the boarder. NATO expansion is threatening to Russia.

Perhaps new clean energy sources would alleviate some of the conflict.

Australians Just Showed the World Exactly How to Respond to Terrorism With #IllRideWithYou

In the aftermath of the hostage crisis in downtown Sydney, Australians are showing the world they're not caving to racism or Islamophobia. 

On Monday, an armed gunman stormed a cafe in Martin Place, entering a tense standoff with police. After the hostage-taker displayed an Islamic flag in the cafe's window, many of Australia's Muslims are understandably anxious about facing retribution. 

But instead, Australians have banded together on Twitter with #IllRideWithYou, a hashtag showing their solidarity with fellow countrymen scared of being attacked on public transportation. 

The hashtag started simply, with an act of compassion. Tessa Kum, a writer living in Sydney, told Guardian Australia she acted after seeing a tweet from TV reporter Michael James:

From Wonkette

This man needs a jobNobody was all that surprised when the White House’s petition site got turned into a vehicle for silliness, like the petition calling on the U.S. Government to build its very own Death Star, or to deport Piers Morgan for not loving guns the way a real American should. And then there’s the stupid ones, like the suggestion that we name sportsball goalkeeper Tim Howard as “secretary of DEFENSE,” haw-haw. But we’re pretty sure that Wonkers can all get behind this excellent suggestion: Appoint George W. Bush the next ambassador to Iraq. READ MORE »

I couldn't agree more, if he is examined independently, they will probably still take the side of the family whether they get paid off or not because it isn't about his mental health, it's about making Atheism punishable.

I've just read Suzannas link about the Nigerian man who has been incarcerated in a mental hospital by he's family for saying he is an Atheist, its bad enough that psychiatrists have gone along with this sham but now some people who were calling for he's release are now saying he should be examined by independent doctors. in my opinion he should be released without any preconditions. if this happened in the UK or the US i would sue the bejebus out of them

A Nigerian man is declared insane for being an Atheist
