  • Trump question leaves House Republican stumbling

    As much of the political world shifts its attention towards the South Carolina primary, MSNBCs Steve Kornacki checked in this morning with Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), the states former governor. Sanford noted he’d heard from a lot of locals that supporting Donald Trump would help send a message to Washington. The Trump candidacy, the congressman added, has tapped into Republicans frustrations. Sanford’s troubles were understandable. There were plenty of Republicans who effectively, if not literally, ruled out Trump as a possibility in 2015, when they still assumed the New York developer’s support would collapse. But many of those same GOP...

    BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) -- After a decade on the advance, the left in South America is in retreat. Just in the past month, voters in Argentina elected a conservative businessman president over the chosen successor of Cristina Fernandez and Brazil's congress launched an impeachment probe against President Dilma Rousseff, whose approval ratings have been languishing in single digits. In perhaps the biggest turnabout, voters in Venezuela, where the region's leftward shift began, handed the opposition a landslide victory in congressional elections - its first nationwide legislative win since the U.S.-bashing Hugo Chavez won the presidency in 1998. The backlash comes...

    Explanation: What are those colorful arcs in the sky? Like rainbows that are caused by rain, arcs of sunlight broken up into component colors can also result when ice crystals floating in Earth's atmosphere act together as a gigantic prism. The top color arc is more typical as it is part of the 22 degree halo surrounding the Sun when hexagonal ice crystals refract sunlight between two of the six sides. More unusual, though, is the bottom color arc. Sometimes called a fire rainbow, this circumhorizon arc is also created by ice, not fire nor even rain. Here, a series...

The bus was carrying 51 gendarmes, the national police force that patrols Argentina's border regions. "For reasons that are still unknown, the bus lost control while entering the bridge and fell into the stream below," the statement said.

    BUENOS AIRES -- Conservative challenger Mauricio Macri turned Argentine politics on its head on Sunday, kicking the ruling Peronist movement out of power with a promise to liberalize the ailing economy and end a culture of divisive politics. Macri, the son of an Italian-born construction magnate, won the election by tapping into frustration over anemic growth, high inflation, and corruption, and he will become only the third non-Peronist leader since the end of military rule in 1983. The other two failed to finish their terms, however, a reminder of the difficulties that Peronist labor unions, state governors, and opponents in...

A lot of air arms don’t even need or even want the latest fourth-generation fighters on the market like the Eurofighter Typhoon, Dassault Rafale, Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, Lockheed F-16V “Viper,” Saab JAS-39 Gripen or even a Russian-made Sukhoi Su-30 or Su-35.

    Last week’s election in Argentina produced a result that few predicted. Mauricio Macri, the center–right mayor of Buenos Aires, secured almost as many votes as the favorite, Daniel Scioli, the former powerboat racer and governor of the province of Buenos Aires. Scioli, the candidate for the incumbent Front for Victory (FPV) coalition, who the outgoing president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, had reluctantly endorsed, won 36.8 percent of the vote; Macri’s coalition, called “Let’s Change,” won 34.3 percent. To avoid a second round vote, Argentina’s constitution requires that one party receive more than 45 percent of the vote (or at least...

    'After a significant period of decline, the Argentine armed forces have ceased to be a capable military force. In August 2015, the Argentine air force retired its Mirage fighters, with only a handful of them even flyable.'

    WAR IS BORING ^ | August 19, 2015 | David Axe
    After decades of decline, the Argentine air force once one of the most powerful air arms in South America has finally given up. In August 2015, the Fuerza Area Argentina retired its 16 Mirage supersonic fighters, fewer than 10 of which were actually in flyable condition at the time. That leaves the FAA with just subsonic jet fighters 25 A-4s and 18 IA-63s. Buenos Aires has made noise about buying new Gripens from the United Kingdom and Sweden via Brazil, JF-17s from China and Kfirs from Israel, but the U.K. vetoed the Gripen idea and the JF-17s...

    Last week the Argentine Air Force formally bid farewell to the remaining French built Mirage jet fighters, which saw combat during the Falkland Islands conflict in 1982, since in three months time they will be decommissioned after four decades service. The occasion was the 103 anniversary of the Air Force (10th August but celebrated on the 13th). Despite having extended the lifespan and flying hours of the few Mirages left, the repeated problems with the obsolete avionics only allows them to fly during day light with pilots keeping visual contact. Since the current administration of president Cristina Fernandez will be...

    Argentina's Primera Division was home to the most delicious form of heckling over the weekend when Racing fans threw a cheeseburger at Belgrano goalkeeper Juan Olave mid-match. It's unclear what the cheeseburger was supposed to symbolize, maybe it was just the most readily-available object to throw? Either way, Olave picked the dang burger up, took two bites and thanked the crowd. I played goalie in a rec league last year. I got a stitch from drinking too much water. This dude is out here eating cheeseburgers. Meanwhile the commenters on YouTube are afraid for his safety. You know what has...

  • Trusting Iran to stop terrorism is like inviting an arsonist to join the fire brigade

    Iran's foreign minister, Javad Zarif, has written an op-ed in the Financial Times which sets forward a distinct sequence for ostensibly resolving the daunting security challenges of the Middle East. First, the P5+1 - the group of powerful nations negotiating with Iran - should come to a deal over its nuclear program. As a result, he argues, Tehran will "open new horizons" and join "the international battle" against "the increasingly brutal extremism that is engulfing the Middle East." The idea that Iran is a partner in the fight against terrorism is not only disingenuous but also absurd. What Zarif is...

    Argentinas Jewish community is outraged over President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchners comparison of the countrys debt crisis to William Shakespeares infamous character Shylock, Haaretz reported Wednesday. Kirchner made the remarks on Twitter last week, while recounting her meeting with 10-year-old schoolchildren in Buenos Airess Villa Lugano neighborhood. To understand the nations economic problems, Kirchner asserted, the children should read Shakespeares The Merchant of Venice, in which the Jewish Shylock is portrayed as a money lender seeking revenge. [] No, dont laugh. Usury and bloodsuckers have been immortalized in the greatest literature for centuries, she added in another tweet.
