We went in, destroyed Saddam's regime, and then terribly botched the rebuilding in the aftermath. The responsibility and the duty to reestablish a stable government still falls to us, regardless of how long it takes or how much hardship we have to bear to get it done. I accept this, but why do you ...

When to leave Iraq?

An adjuct to "Bridging the divide". Probably best to keep this simply as a poll with all discussion on that thread.

but we would end up with a Shi'a state gravitating towards Iran, and an oil-poor Sunni state possibly leaning toward Saudi Arabia. Why is this a bad thing? It would correct some of the un-naturalness of the present frontiers. It would allow the Iraqis to be in a nation with those they have things i...

Would it not be simpler to let Iraq split along ethinc/religious lines and form three stable, internally monolithic (is this the correct word?) states. This would remove much of the tension from what you admit is a man made country.

He invents the vodka martini, foils several villains and gets the girl. It is over the top in the way you expect, and we'd be disappointed if it wasn't. The fights are over the top in the amount of pain/injury people can take but nothing like you describe. Gravity always applies, though there is one...

Would they want to live in country where a marine who admits killing a disabled grandfather doesn't even ...

Turned out to be one of 36 regional premieres. Local radio was as showbiz as it got. Good film though. They restart the franchise with Bond just getting his 00 rating. There is no CGI that I noticed, stunts are done by stuntmen. Great free running sequence at the start, the big plot idea makes some ...

James Bond stars in "Formulaic Money Making Exercise&qu

The Memsahib sometimes gets invited to things by law firms trying to butter her up (she can put a lot of work their way) so she and partner are invited to the "Regional Charity Premiere" of the new Bond film tonight. We're off to drink free vodka martinis, stare at people who think they ar...

They changed the writing team, and tinkered with the format, between series one and two. I don't think they had the green light for a follow up unless they did.

I seem to be missing things lately, when did you move to the Convict Colony? Melbourne was a free settlement. (Still is, I guess.) Maybe so, but it's where England sent all of her convicts after we declared our independence here in the U.S. Oz Immigration: "Do you have a criminal record?"...
