Joking aside, you shouldn't claim everyone is scared of nuclear
war when that's simply not true.
 
Rational people know the odds of nuclear war over Korea are
miniscule so they're not scared.
 
Besides, fear leads to aggression.

Not joking. I really hope you get nuked.

You don't care for Americans.
If the going were to get tough with NK in a few years from now you would flee to Pakistan. Trump, however, has to keep America safe.

If such an unfortunate thing as a divorce occurs, as a rule,
mother should get the child until it's 8 years old as little kids
require care and nurture and then after 8 years, the kids should
be given to fathers to raise them properly.

Not okay to sacrifice a little kid at the altar of your greed. I know I am saying this in retrospect, but Azarenka should have recognized the guy for the golddigger he seems to be, before deciding to have a kid with him.

Why have a kid with a guy you barely know? what do you expect.

Live and learn. "Love" can turn quickly. She needs to go out with an established guy in the future, not some bum who is out to get her money or use their kid as a go-between.

I don't think the kid was planned.

With Russia or China, dickhead!!
A war against NK, however, is winnable. And it would result in regime change.

Germany was invading other countries and doing mass genocide of Jews, Romanis, Gypsies etc. North Korea is doing none of that. Trump is just provoking them with pfffff.... Twitter!

Neither did Germany in 1938.

So nothing wrong with what Neville said then. He was not Nostradamus to know what Hitler was upto.

You are wrong there. Watch his match against Berdych in Queens'. Berdych played very well (Wimbledon semifinal well) and Shap nearly took him out.

Though you did not have an issue pegging Tomic for multiple slams when he had achieved exactly zilch. :)

Fed is 1000% a shoe-in for the USO final, nobody else is turning up at the event.

Eh?!! You were hollering about how great Kyrgios was a month or so ago, we heard about his talent and fight etc you sure have changed your tune!
The Iceberg <iceberg.rules@gmail.com>: Aug 11 11:00AM -0700

Tomic has always had the talent to win slams, just way too lazy, that's the difference. Haven't an 18 year old like him since, but haven't seen this kid yet so will let you know when do see him.

I always said Kyrgios had a lot of talent but unfortunately he doesn't give a crap and I don't think he will change that attitude. In addition, he (like Raonic and Nishikori) is injured all the time.
 
I want to watch youngsters with talent AND drive. I don't give a crap about players who make QFs or win a couple of 250 events in their lives. I only watch to see great competitors play other great competitors.

Meh.. I don't see it that way.
 
At the moment I don't see anything phenomenal about these three players.
Are they talented? Sure they are.
 
They have simply arrived at the right time.
 
The big four won't be a serious factor for winning slams in a few years
or sooner.
 
Someone has to win them. These guys are just the most likely ones to
seize the opportunity.
 
They don't need any magical skills, that the big four possess(ed).
Just enough to get the job done.
 
Of the three guys you mentioned, I like Zverev best.

Point taken. I do see quite a difference in these three from the risk-averse
games of Nadal/Djok/Murray and their clones. Probably not a new Federer among
them, but still bright spots on the tennis scene.

There are many major political parties and they don't divide themselves along liberal vs conservative lines. China is one party. That lives 2.5 billion people in the world who do not have a concept of liberal vs conservative principles. Sorry to make you look like a fucking idiot which you are!
 
 
If "governments who love to tell their citizens how to live their lives pay them billions of dollars" suits you better, Doperova-loving Indian dummy?

Very rude. But you still haven't convinced us that e.g. a
pediatrician is better at judging political ideas than a burger
flipper.
 
Neither has great expertise in geopolitics, economy, sociology or
natural sciences regarding climate change.
 
So what is it that makes burger flipper's opinion less worthy?
