I must admit, I was a little uncomfortable with the street celebrations after his death.

Ultimately, he was a nutter (albeit a Western trained one) and he had to be killed. An excellent operation by the Seals.

Can someone english please explain how your system works? Many years ago, you would go through primary, junior and upper schools. The school year runs Septe...

NATO nearly got Gaddafi this weekend in an airstrike. That would have been a fantastic double.

true that Honda is great. How about Adel Taarabt, 21 year midfielder plays for Queens Park Rangers in the championship league, i think he should play for a better club but they are getting promoted anyway so i guess it doesn't matter. I would also like to see Alexis Sanchez move into the la liga or...

There are rules regarding how much players can be fined and the maximum is two weeks wages so that isn't really going to make any difference to a player earning as much as Rooney. Players earn these massive wages which are paid for by TV money. That means they are going to be on TV a lot. They also ...

Its impossible to know exactly what damage you've done. My guess is that if its not causing too much discomfort, its probably nothing serious.

The doctor will be able to give you a better idea or maybe refer you to a sports physio.

klc you know nothing about america. Im black and i live here. Yes black people suffered but its because the british started the slave trade so of course theyre going to treat the blacks badly: they learned from the british. Racism is always going to be around. Also, it makes sense to bomb if you wa...

I read through the rest of the article and there were some pretty interesting things. There is a growing consensus among modern historians that the views as to the utility of the bomb held in August 1945 were correct. We now know that if the bomb had not been used, the invasion of Japan would have ...

agreed, and if it wasn't for the united states british people would be speaking german right now so there is no room to talk No, we'd be speaking Russian because the Soviets would have defeated Hitler thus taking control. It would also have changed the whole pattern of the Cold War as there would b...

PS: Leave Egypt alone as I'm going there in a couple of weeks for a holiday. It would also be great if that other bunch of terrorists pretending to be a government, Hamas would stop bombing buses in Israel as its cowardly and I want to visit Jerusalem.

The most amazing thing about the whole Libya situation is that the French were the first to get stuck in with the no-fly zone. I've never heard anything like it. It must be the first time their military has been in action since they sank the Rainbow Warrior (google it). I'm not really a big fan of U...

I was there yesterday and it was men against boys. As ScottyBoy says, it was over in 15 minutes. It would have been nice to go out and rack up a few goals but they did what they had too. Goal difference isn't an issue for the group standings as I think we're about 5 goals better than Montenegro. Our...

You'd give the talk depending on the situation.

- Have they played well
- Are the opposition significantly better / worse

You also need to know who those players react. No point shouting at them if it doesnt work.
