Iraqi Government ground and US Coalition air forces delivered the most crushing defeat to the IS Group to date. As the provincial capital of Anbar the city is highly symbolic for the Iraqi nation, and as the third largest city formerly under the control of the "caliphate" the impact on IS is two fold. First, the IS group will be losing tax income, manpower, a staging area to threaten Baghdad, and the perception of being blessed by their death god. Second, the loss of the city... Comment too long.

>>12490 I take it as a proof of concept. If the Coalition can find and support fighters that will push out warlords in Iraq without replacing them with terrorism then it can also be done in Syria. If something worse doesn't follow ISIS tyranny then it won't necessarily follow Assad tyranny.
> Enter Trump, who has the temerity to point out that the party establishment says one thing but does another. He launched his campaign by calling the GOP’s bluff on immigration: If the 11 million people here without documents are really “illegal,” as the party loudly proclaims, then send them home. Other candidates were put in the position of having to explain why, after claiming that President Obama was somehow “soft” on immigration, their position on allowing the undocumented to stay is basically the same.

The party of: slavery, succession from the union (the Confederacy), segregation, the KKK, denying women the vote, killing children one month from being born, not executing murders, making sure only criminals have guns, Japanese american internment camps, and giving non Americans more rights than citizens. Yep the Democrat Party. How could Trump be worse?
>>12478 Pretending the Democrat Party was not behind maintaining slavery and the horrors of discrimination against minorities long after other civilized countries outlawed it is just a sign of how effective the propaganda is. How does it feel to be defending your ignorance with "duh"??

The influx of EU migrants can lead to pay reductions of nearly two per cent in some industries including catering, hotels and elderly care, the research showed.
Campaigners last night seized on the document as official confirmation that EU migration is undermining the living standards of the UK’s least paid workers.
Lord Green of Deddington, the chairman of the pressure group Migration Watch, said: “For many years the immigration lobby have claimed that there is no evidence that immigration has any significant effect on the wages of British workers.

Our earlier investigation into the facts about immigration unveiled that low-skill occupations, such as semi-unskilled services, had witnessed the largest increases in immigration in recent years. If immigrants in these occupations earn less than natives, the 1.88 percent negative impact of immigration on wages reported above could simply reflect compositional changes... Comment too long.

>>12516 Well, remember that they're both producers and consumers. Increasing the population means increasing aggregate demand, while will increase prices and therefore wages. The question is whether that effect is enough to counteract the effect of the increased workforce on aggregate supply, and therefore wages.
I would draw a picture showing how both AS and AD increase with an increase in the quantity of people in the economy, but no images on /news/. Sorry
So national geographic spent years and millions of dollars to film a giant squid, building a submarine and travelling hundreds of metres below the depths - only to have one to swim to the shores a couple years later, healthy and able to swim back to sea.
Trump is finally spending money on ads, and is preparing to spend 2 million a week. Since he announced his candidacy, Trump has only spent 200,000 on ads (primarily radio ads in Iowa) http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/12/28/trump-plots-big-tv-ad-blitz-that-could-change-campaign-landscape.html
Further your education and practice proper lab safety in the coming years. Commercial and diplomatic space flight will be more than possible or at least this non-O would project about as much. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pq-S557XQU&list=PLzKiypScsQiNKqY4UVvJPr-ViwCgwIjnd
Anyway, I'm sure this just some loony fundie hearing what they want to hear. I remember a story from years ago about talking doll that supposedly said "Islam is the light." Sounded like absolute gibberish.
" TOKYO — Japan and South Korea said Monday they had “finally and irreversibly” resolved a dispute over wartime sex slaves that has bedeviled relations between the two countries for decades.
In something of a surprise development, the two countries’ foreign ministers met in Seoul to finalize a deal that will see Japan put $8.3 million into a South Korean fund to support the 46 surviving “comfort women” and to help them recover their “honor and dignity” and heal their “psychological wounds.”
The move was welcomed in Washington, which has... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So what do you guys expect this entails down the line? Closer ties economically and militarily? They have pretty similar interests, I think, and they both want to curb growing Chinese dominance. I think recent incursions into their territories is what spurred this agreement: Japan finally decided grandstanding wasn't worth it.
The only standing issue I can think of is that one island between SK and Japan, but I imagine that issue isn't that big and that they have other things they'd benefit from dealing with together, that have much more serious implications.
>>12221 I would hope Japan is prepared to back down from Dokdo with the Koreans agreeing to some sort of sharing of mineral rights, and support for Japan's Senkaku claims. If the rest of Asia wants to keep China in check, there needs to be much closer ties and cooperation than there is now.
