    Great post.

    To put this in more simpler terms "two wrongs don't make a right". Just because an enemy does something terrible, doesn't mean you need to drop to their level and kill innocent people as well.

    ^^^^^^This is why bringing up Dresden was not logical to me in the first place when talking about dancing Palestinians..... on 9/11.

    Here we go again....

    I saw this article today about Vienna.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-21859771

    100 years ago, the following people lived there:

    • Hitler
    • Stalin
    • Franz Ferdinand (whose assassination the following year caused World War I)
    • Sigmund Freud
    • Leon Trotsky
    The one I was really surprised about was Stalin. It's fascinating to think that most of the people who shaped World War I, World War II, and the 20th century, were all living in the same city.

    North Korea lists terms for talks with US and S Korea

    [​IMG]In recent weeks, the North has threatened to attack South Korea, Japan and US bases in the region
    North Korea has said it was ready to talk if UN sanctions against it were withdrawn and if the US and South Korea put an end to joint military drills.
    The conditions for dialogue were outlined in a statement from the North's National Defence Commission and carried on official news agency KCNA.
    The UN imposed sanctions on North Korea after the country conducted its third nuclear test on 12 February.
    The US and South Korea's annual joint military drills began in March.
    "If the US and the South enemies... genuinely want dialogue and negotiation, they should take these steps," the defence commission said.
    "The first step will be withdrawing the UN Security Council resolutions cooked up on ridiculous grounds," the statement said.
    "Second, you need to tell the whole world that you will not get involved in any rehearsal for a nuclear war that threatens our nation. Dialogues and war games can never go together," it added.
    Tensions have been high on the Korean peninsula since North Korea conducted its third underground nuclear test, which resulted in sanctions from the UN.
    In recent weeks, the North has threatened to attack South Korea, Japan and US bases in the region.
    South Korean President Park Gyeun-hye has made conditional offers of talks with the North, but the North has said that it was merely a "crafty trick".
    The US had also said it was willing to hold talks with North Korea, but only if previous agreements on disarmament were upheld.
    Meanwhile, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged North Korea to "seriously " consider a dialogue with the South about Kaesong Industrial Complex.
    "I firmly believe that the recent offer of dialogue by the Republic of Korea is genuine and hope that the DPRK takes it seriously," Mr Ban said on Wednesday.
    Kaesong, located inside North Korea just across the demilitarised zone from South Korea, was largely financed by the South to increase co-operation.
    The North has blocked access to Kaesong since 3 April amid rising tension on the Korean peninsula.

    Back to the Thatcher thread for a moment...
    (Warning, I have no "familiarity" with this site and it's leanings, though they are apparent in the title, but I don't really care as I tend to extract information from all possible sites)
    I find the fact that the US did not represent... concerning? And while there are significant issues to deal with "at home"... it is still relational-ly disturbing.
    Certainly there are some Brits that could care less as they rejoiced with her death, but...

    In "after think"... maybe this is better phrased as a question... Is this an issue? The Queen attends for the first time in 48 years. And the US attendance is "mixed."

    In Scotland, she certainly wasn't popular. Every day my Facebook feed has been full of people saying how glad they are she is dead. Seriously, that is how much she was hated up here.

    I do think it was a little strange that not one person was sent from the US office, particularly when you consider how strong her ties with with the Reagan administration....and the fact they sent someone to the funeral of Hugo Chavez. The heads of state of several other countries were in attendance, as well as many other important people from around the world.

    Personally, I have no issues with the US not sending someone. :)
