You think lawyers in countries other than the good ol' US of A just sit there all day and do nothing?
If you mean 'Nothing useful', Yes
right now, there is probably still a lot of countries in latin america that would love the opportunity to join the US.
I can tell right there, that you've never visited South America.
Now answer this one: what's been the single biggest innovation in education?
The Open University, 1971 http://www8.open.ac.uk/about/main/the-ou-explained/history-the-ou
... it would require a sponsor with huge financial investment
The US Government comes to mind. For the price of a single B1 bomber, they could do that.
However, for a society to work, we need to have rules.
And when those rules are broken, as they were by the US military, there need to be whistle blowers, to bring the miscreants into line, and put them in trial for their illegalities.
I believe very strongly that Manning should be facing the death penalty simply to send a message to the military that if you do this and get caught, you may die for it.
Ah, the smell of fascist blood lust in the morning...Don't like what someone did? Just kill them. It makes you feel manly.
All of them were smart enough to be able to use a bittorrent client and browse bittorrent sites. They will be smart enough to use whatever plug-and-play method the internet will invent to circumvent these bans.
"whatever plug-and-play method the internet has already invented to circumvent these bans".
But on top of that, breeding plants which create their own insecticide?
My understanding is that the plants don't create their own insecticide. Rather they tolerate large doses of Roundup, which is a general-purpose insecticide that would normally kill the crop. Roundup has been available for decades. The danger here is that Roundup-ready seed contaminates other crops, and thus farmers are left with no choice but to use Monsanto's product to control weeds. A couple of problems arise; one: that the crop becomes a mono-culture, and two: because the crop is resistant to Roundup, farmers use too much of it to kill the weeds. That leads the to the classic evolutionary race of the weeds to themselves become 'Roundup-ready', and eventually be resistant to weed-killer. Monsanto don't even allow farmers to keep seed and resow next year; they insist that farmers buy fresh. They are definitely the baddies here, and need taking down.
Professional crashers (yes, they exist) put their hands up at the sides of their head.
That's probably why they crash. I suggest that they hold the steering wheel in future.
