  1. Well, that headline makes no sense, since the provincial gov't doesn't have bombs.
  2. Again, if you know anything about Oliver Stone's political views, it won't be propaganda.
  3. http://www.apple.com/trailers/mgm/rockybalboa/trailer1/ Awesome. Can't wait for it.
  4. Who cares? Nobody knows until 2008. But neither McCain nor Hillary will ever win. They're both pretty hated by their party's respective bases.
  5. Umm, because it isn't different, on the whole. As a Canadian, I don't even know what Canada's national identity is. If anything, the differences within our own country are equal to the differences between Canada and the US.
  6. That's not a very good explanation why westerners have historically felt alienated. Funny, though.
  7. "I am completely, 100% in favour of helping the Afghan people govern themselves without religious fundamentalists. I am in favour of helping free the women of Afghanistan from what is essentially slavery." How would you guys go about doing this? I just have trouble believing NGOs can operate without something backing them up.
  8. Hands up - who believes terrorists hate us because we value freedom, democracy and the rule of law? ;) Why is this even a news story? Of course he's going to say that... he's a freakin Taliban official.
  9. Last time I checked, the Taliban was a militia, although I'm uncertain as to any "fixed distinctive sign" or "in accordance with the laws and customs of war." They don't wear uniforms, and target civilians... so that's a no to both.
  10. I read the opposite, that Canada will abide by the Geneva Conventions. http://www.canada.com/ottawacitizen/news/s...c541383&k=39028 Technically speaking, however, Taliban and al-Qaeda prisoners don't qualify for POW status: (Article 4) "Prisoners of war, in the sense of the present Convention, are persons belonging to one of the following categories, who have fallen into the power of the enemy" * "Members of the armed forces" * "militias...including those of organized resistance movements...having a fixed distinctive sign recognizable at a distance...conducting their operations in accordance with the laws and customs of war" * "Persons who accompany the armed forces" * "Members of crews...of the merchant marine and the crews of civil aircraft" * "Inhabitants of a non-occupied territory, who on the approach of the enemy spontaneously take up arms"
  11. This is the best part, really. Marilyn Monroe died a year and a half before Kennedy did. So unless he was into necrophelia...
  12. They didn't die! They were the last two guys to be pulled out alive.
