British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Saturday that if it were proven that Ukrainian separatists were behind the downing of a Malaysian jet carrying 298 passengers, Russia would be to blame for having destabilized the country.
"If this is the case then we must be clear what it means: this is a direct result of Russia destabilizing a sovereign state, violating its territorial integrity, backing thuggish militias and training and arming them," he wrote in The Sunday Times newspaper.

People like USSA and FakeDave still try to say Obama didn't lie about Obamacare.
It doesn't matter when the truth is staring them in the face.
That I know. But, I am still amazed that they thought the press getting the number of US citizens killed in the plane crash wrong was some right-wing conspiracy. Of all the inane things to go bonkers over.

"One small step" into history, 45 years later
Astronaut Buzz Aldrin stands on the moon July 20, 1969, in an iconic picture shot by Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong, seen reflected in Aldrin's helmet visor. NASA
6 Comments Shares Tweets Stumble Email More +
Flying 69 miles above the far side of the moon, out of contact with Earth and a world-wide audience holding its collective breath, Apollo 11 commander Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin fired their lunar module's main engine for 30 seconds to begin the first piloted descent to the moon's surface.
It was July 20, 1969 - 45 years ago Sunday - and in a little more than one hour, one way or the other, Armstrong and Aldrin would either be safely on the surface or making an emergency abort back to orbit where crewmate Mike Collins was standing by in the Apollo 11 command module.
Those were the two most positive scenarios. There were other, grimmer, possibilities ranging from a failure that could leave the lunar module stranded on the surface, unable to take off, to any number of potentially catastrophic malfunctions that could trigger a crash landing or some other equally deadly outcome.
NASA managers, engineers and the astronauts were confident the hardware would work and that the crew was well trained and ready to handle virtually any contingency.
But no one knew for sure and as the drama unfolded a quarter of a million miles away, a huge global audience followed along via radio and television as flight controllers at the Johnson Space Center in Houston monitored telemetry and managed humanity's initial visit to another world.
Moon walkers
The rocket firing on the dark side of the moon lowered the far side of the lunar lander's orbit to a point 50,000 feet above the surface, 300 miles from the planned landing site. Flying ahead of the lander, the Apollo 11 command module - Columbia - rounded the limb of the moon and Collins reassured flight controllers the "burn" went well.
"Listen, babe, everything's going just swimmingly. Beautiful," he radioed.
As the lander, dubbed Eagle, flew back into contact with Houston, legendary Flight Director Gene Kranz and his team of controllers had a scant 13 minutes or so to evaluate telemetry and assess the health of the spacecraft before clearing the crew to fire the engine again, at the low point of the new orbit, to begin the final landing phase.
But that was not considered a major problem as long as it did not get worse. To improve communications, Armstrong and Aldrin were asked to change the orientation of the lander, rolling about its long axis to improve an antenna's line of sight to Earth.
After concluding that an unrelated electrical issue was the result of instrumentation and not an actual problem, Kranz cleared the crew to begin powered descent.
"Eagle, Houston. If you read, you're go for powered descent," astronaut Charles Duke, serving as capsule communicator, or CAPCOM, radioed from mission control.
Eagle's landing engine restarted as the spacecraft sailed through the low point of its lunar orbit, slowing the ship's forward velocity and beginning the final five-mile plunge to the surface.
That was just last Sunday ... wasn't it? I remember watching it on television, I don't know for certain, but I think it was on all 6 or maybe it was 8 channels by then, but I probably watched it on either ABC Channel 7, or KTTV Channel 11. What a proud day for America and like many, my thoughts were of Jack Kennedy who was such an inspiration to our space program and to our country in everyday life. Contrast JFK to the pathetic fool now in the WH, Obama would probably decry our imperialism for invading the moon. God Bless America.

Dave went horribly off the rails in his rant.

First, he self appointed himself as the final authority on what Christians believe

Second, he lamely attempted to use "If you are real Christian" ....hmmm, so Dave is the person who decides these things.

I don't know if Dave is a Christian and personally I could care less if he is or not.

Problem with Republicans, you want the United States to play a leading role in every little crisis around the world regardless of American lives or the cost. In case you haven't noticed, that plan isn't working out too well.

I do not support abortion. I support women's right to choose. You base your beliefs on when you believe life begins.
I have never made a racist post. I only point out the racist posts that come from your ilk.
If the Christian right were really Christian, they would support helping people and be against the raping of the Earth.
Scientists recently announced individual DNA codes are present at conception. The human heart begins beating spontaneously 18 days after conception.

That's not a matter of anyone's personal beliefs. It's science which you put your faith in.

Racism can be found in any society and any culture. It is not a partisan issue in this country. The number of true racists is relatively small. Labeling entire segments of the population as racists is small-minded.

Tell Hillary then dumbazz. She must have not gotten the same memo you did, RealDumb:

"In an otherwise cuddly interview on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”2016 Democratic frontrunner

---> Hillary Clinton still found a way to stick the knife into her 2008 rival and former boss, President Obama. <----

The former secretary of state, who has been distancing herself from Obama, took an unmistakable jab at the current president in answer to a question about diminishing American clout in the world:“We have not been telling our story very well. We do have a great story.” Clinton said,“We are not perfect by any means,

---> but we have a great story about human freedom, human rights, human opportunity, and let’s get back to telling it <----

to ourselves first and foremost and believing it about ourselves and then taking that around the world. That’s what we should be standing for.”

Baawwaaahhh!!!!!

Still trying to push your asinine either/or hogwash again Carol? Nobody's advocating for any kind of socialism/ communism stupid; we just don't want unfettered, no holds barred capitalism either. One system leads to economic stagnation and the other to corporate plutocracy were a few reap all the benefits and the majority fight for the crumbs. Successful economies are in the middle where businesses can compete on a level playing field and workers are protected from unsafe working conditions as well as the public from pollution.
You can believe whatever you want Carol; we don't care but when you try to enact your beliefs into law, that's where we draw the line.
You can flush that "traditional values" down the toilet where it belongs. "Traditional values" have been used by ignorant bigots like you to discriminate against those who are different from you and to defend among other things like slavery and racial discrimination.
"Traditional values" once declared that women were property.
"Traditional values" once said that people of different races couldn't marry.
You're an idiot Carol!
Progressivism=kill whitey/the gringo.

Bigotry is all your side has left to fight for because you have succeeded at implementing every traditional leftist scheme in this country at one point in time.

Why are these people from Central America going into Mexico if not to get to the US?
The US is the one attracting these people and you expect Mexico to fix the problem.
"realrealdumb"
Do you ever think before you offer a post? All those illegals in Mexico and they do nothing to secure their southern borders? Why is not a problem for Mexico? The US should make it a problem for Mexico by:
- Sealing the border, building better fences and let Mexico deal with the thousands upon thousands who are in their country illegally
- The US should pull out of NAFTA
- The US should cut off the billions of dollars in aid money sent to Mexico
