Haha, I was actually just reading another post of his, where's it's basically just him rambling about Romney's incoherent/messy foreign policy views. But generally he posts pretty interesting stuff/ideas.

Yep, he definitely pokes fun at Romney pretty often. I like that he makes fun of Realists too though, seeing as they're wrong!

Just finished this. Great read.


The guy has an amazing story, and it looks to be a fairly accessible/easy read, so this will probably be the first one I tackle out of the bunch.

That's my only gripe with it, haha.

The people there want to be British, and that alone seems reason enough for me to have them stay British. I don't really see why Argentina deserves anything, especially since they are the only side doing anything hostile these days.
Pretty much. Even if a compromise was possible I'm not sure the islanders themselves would be keen on one, and their wishes and right to self-determination are really what it should come down to.

This is a good start,

Thomas Lubanga sentenced to 14 years for Congo war crimes.
Democratic Republic of Congo warlord who recruited and used child soldiers is the first person convicted by the ICC.

Quote:
Thomas Lubanga was found guilty in March of abducting boys and girls under the age of 15 and forcing them to fight in the Democratic Republic of the Congo's eastern Ituri region in 2002-2003.

Lubanga, 51, is the first person convicted by the permanent war crimes tribunal.


What a bastard.

Park Geun-hye aims to become South Korea's first female president.
Daughter of dictator promises greater equality and to break the 'vicious cycle of mistrust' with North Korea.

That sounds all well and good, but she has previously described herself as a Korean Thatcher, so...

Mmhmm. I figure self-determination has been a mainstay of the last 100 years or so, no reason to stop now just because some South American countries have decided they need to assert themselves on the world stage.

What a bunch of fat-a** dicks

Fresh attacks in Nigeria claimed by Boko Haram: http://mg.co.za/article/2012-07-11-f...ink14-20120711

"Christians "will not know peace again" if they do not accept Islam, said a statement from the Boko Haram sect obtained by the Associated Press on Tuesday, which added a new dimension to a security crisis in a region that has seen years of religious violence."

In northern Syria, people forced to scavenge for fuel and food.
With no income, rocketing prices and increasing violence, villagers in the outskirts of Aleppo have been forced out, leaving the countryside to rebel soldiers.

I've just about stopped reading news on Syria, mainly because of how nothing continues to be done. People are dying every day, and nothing is still being done about it.

Not looking good for Nigeria, I wouldn't be surprised if they go the way of Sudan and separate at some point. I've given up on Syria too. It depresses me that this kind of stuff still goes down on a regular basis just because the Russians and Chinese are pieces of shit.

Has anyone been paying attention to the circus that is Romanian politics right now? It's wild over there, and potentially very much anti-democratic.
