And some news sources say that turkey now has boots on the ground in Iraq against the Kurds..
The way you describe them, only the YPG and maybe the southern front are worth backing.. With the rest, I kinda have to agree with allan, and lump them together as one group. And none, except the YPG can be trusted enough NOT to do an ethnic cleansing when the common enemy Assad is gone..
1 - I never spoke about high level jobs, but ok. For sure there is a need in Europe for engineers and doctors. I'd like to argue that we need tradesmen as well, which most of the immigrants can become if they simply want to work. What I'd like to see is a program that would not separate them from society, but immediately put them through the employers office, helping them get a job, any job, asap. A lot of unemployment here is also due to lack of flexibility. For instance,...
err, no. I prefer good healthcare, proper infrastructure and a high standard of living..These people don't want to get rich, they want a living.Did you catch this?:http://www.dw.com/en/german-employers-should-hire-more-refugees/a-18673577As I noted here earlier, we could use the influx of younger workers to keep our pension system intact. We just need to start the right debate, that this is all about demographics and money, unpalatable as it is...
Do you still believe that a unified syria is still an option? honestly, the only multi sectarian states that I can think of are all dominated by one, with less rights for the others. And with everything that has been going down, I can only see ethnic cleansings all over when one side wins..
You mean civil war? When the next clinton government will order the army to take away your guns and you all will courageously defend yourself, ultimately banding together in a civilian army that will unseat the tyrannical undemocratic government?im just thinking in scenarios here
Not with the old borders. Only solution Imho is to redraw the lines on sectarian grounds, then help enforce them, and blow to kingdom come any army that crosses it to attack a different "new" country. Kinda worked in Yugoslavia.It would not stop the terrorism immediately, nor stop the fighting. But give direction to the fighting and an anchor (or tie em down, whatever metaphor you'd prefer) to some of those groups.Sadly, as long as Erdogan is around, and the EU not willing...
Which is why I hope that this mass migration will finally trigger a policy debate on how we structure our welfare states. The times that our nations could afford to give anyone a basic income that couldn't or wouldn't work are over, we could only do that due to a demographic fluke and resources that were found that we are now on the verge of exhausting. If you can't work, fine we'll support you to the point that you can live a dignified life. If you can contribute in any...
I thought they mentioned it, I read a full article in german about it. The times article mentions two possible conclusions, one thats yours (repeated abx use is an indicator of another problem that causes type2) and the other that repeated abx use can cause it.. The original publication also mentions that:http://press.endocrine.org/doi/10.1210/jc.2015-2696
I know you don't have a problem with it, my post started out just noting some impracticalities of gun control here, but its relative succes even so. I simply kept on typing.The difference between semiauto and auto is a bit lost on me, but then again its quite hard to have experience with those types of guns here I guess both of these categories have clips (without consulting wiki), which would make them not very practical for hunting, and thus would need to be controlled...
