The United States should learn from China and "genuinely" protect human rights by restricting gun ownership, an editorial in a widely read state-run Chinese newspaper said on Friday. "Washington has been pointing an accusing finger at other countries over human rights ... However, more Americans have been killed by gunfire in the country than American soldiers being killed in all U.S. wars," the Global Times said. "Gun ownership in China is strictly regulated, which helps reduce gun-related crimes and deaths. The U.S. should learn from China and genuinely protect human rights," it said. read more

A woman in Florida says an airline told her to flush her hamster down an airport toilet because the emotional support rodent wasn't allowed to fly with her. The Miami Herald reports Belen Aldecosea flew home from college to South Florida, having twice called Spirit Airlines to ensure she could bring Pebbles, her pet dwarf hamster with her on the flight. But when Aldecosea arrived at Baltimore airport, Spirit refused to allow the animal onboard.

"just exactly who the Mighty Pakistani Navy is competing against."

India has had pretty bad luck with their submarines. They keep buying obsolete Russian designs and hand me downs and when those go up in smoke it's ------ time.

4 years back one of their submarines exploded while docked.



India investigated sabotage by Pakistani secret service but they got nowhere. The most likely explanations are poor maintenance and poor design.

And then there was this.


India's brand new french submarines have all been compromised and made useless. Someone, somehow, leaked all their secret information that makes their detection easy. A submarine that can be detected is useless. Again, the Pakistani secret service or the Chinese are the prime suspects but with no evidence pointing fingers is foolish.

And then this.

The INS Chakra, the Nerpa class nuclear submarine leased from Russia, was reported to have suffered damage to its sonar domes while entering the Visakhapatnam harbour in early October.

And this is only submarines. I haven't even mentioned their aircraft carrier that has turned into a white elephant. It is doubtful China or Pakistan or anyone worries about the Indian Navy.
