    The Dublin Marathon was great: Finished in 4 hours. Great crowds, runners, event organization. Know nothing about the winner’s history, that doesn’t matter to anyone who trained and participated.

    However, it was disappointing so many plastic bottles of water and luco are still being given out… hopefuilly in 2020 we will see changes…

      Well done. Yes, I’ve been complaining about the plastic for some time now. There are a few other marathons throughout the year, less well managed or with clean-up staff, which leave the place in a terrible mess of plastic. Even when it is cleaned up, the amount of waste is shocking.

      Congratulations to the United States for taking out this monster.
      It’s fantastic news for everyone and President Trump should share the same kudos that Barack Hussein Obama did when Bin Laden was dropped off to a watery grave.
      It’ll play well for the re-election of Trump next year as the Democrats continue in disarray with their leading candidate Joe Biden having to spend more of his time defending his son’s murky business dealings in the Ukraine rather than attacking Trump.
      A year out from the elections and they look like the American equivalent of Comrade Corbyn’s Labour party.

        I’m particularl enjoying how he turned ths this foreign policy success lifeline into a tangle of knots. His greenlighting the Turkish offensve nearly scuppered the operation. He played golf all the way through it then staged a photo-op and tried to downplay Bin Laden and 9-11 all to appease his massive Obama envy, then he thanked Putin first, before the troops, and never bothered to inform Congress about the operation, which apparently he’s legally supposed to do, and speculated about just taking the oil, which would be a war crime, AND makes explicit what the Republicans always denied, that their militarism is always about the oil. Meanwhile once this fades from the headlines the impeachment prcess will rumble on, brought about largely because his efforts to cook up dirt on Biden blew up in his face, and now everyone’s talking about Russian interference, Ukrainian quid quo pro, foreign policy as partisan protection racket, Guliani’s antics, criminal connections, and Republicans engaging in loyalty displays by disrupting hearings. Pelosi was more on the money than anyone apreciated when she said he’d self-impeach.

          How many lies can this Nigel fella spin in one clumsy paragraph?

          The TDS is strong in this one.

          Trump is ending the endless wars and he’s still b!tching.

          1. bisted

            …how many people are alive today because crooked Hillary managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory…Trump is collateral damage…

          2. bisted

            …looks like the Kurds picked the wrong side…they should have backed the Syrians from the outset but it looks like they are going to make amends…

          Are Jill Stein and Tulsi Gabbard really Russian assests?

          The Clintons have more Russian ties than anyone.

          And Biden and Pelosi have kids on Ukrainian energy company boards.

          Nothing to see here folks. Move along.

          It’s such a pity that the clintonista’s are the rot that have consumed the DNC, and their followers will forgive them any and all forms of corruption, even if it matches or is worse than what the other side are guilty of doing.

          1. Nigel

            Russian media and Rissian bots love them, whatever you might call that.

            As for the rest, imagine thinking the election of Trump would be some sort of blow against corruption.

          2. italia'90

            Are those actual Russian bots or the fake Russian bots developed by the biggest fake news creator Jonathon Morgan of New Knowledge fame?

            Along with Dickerson and Diresta from the Obama administration…you are just spreading fake news Nidgey – dirty trcks type stuff.

            Such as project Birmingham where the Corporatist Dems were caught redhanded!

            You should be embarrassed and ashamed of yourself for repeating that disinformation.

            Oh and btw – former Democrat Donald Trump is the symptom of the problem in Washington. How does Clinton loose to DT? It’s so ironic I get a laugh every time I remember he and Clinton and Epstein and Weinstien are all good mates.

            There is no Lefty media in ireland- otherwise they would be arguing for affordable housing?

          1. Nigel

            Accused of, you mean. She’s also accused of ordering children from the basement of a pizza place and eating babies, for what that’s worth.

          2. bisted

            …ridiculous accusations…but at least they distract from the thousands of children she is responsible for killing with her war mongering…

    And the Examiner expects us all to respect them as ‘journalists’ it a headline like that. Did they take a transition year student on so the staff could all go on parental leave for the mid term break?

    Who was the clown on here complaining about the Tan newspapers putting the Irish lad in the frame for the migrants mass death ?
    He’s gone very quiet now.

    Noteworthy story regarding Syria and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. According to Guardian journalist, Johnathon Steele speaking on BBC radio, now a second whistleblower from the OPCW has emerged to say his findings were suppressed on the absence of evidence for chlorine gas use on the scene in Douma. This is on top of a leaked OPCW assessment from a few months back which contradicted the OPCW’s official ballistics report but which was hidden from the public by the organisation. The alleged chemical weapons attack was used as justification for military strikes by the US, UK and France.

    I think it’s an important lesson on how ostensibly impartial organisations can and do get used as propaganda tools to mold public opinion in the West. Maybe it’s time for an independent investigation into the Skripal case too? I’m not holding by breath.

      iirc it was the engineers report, which was also suppressed that first raised suspicions about the veracity of the OPCW investigation into Douma.
      But the msm narrative parroted by the likes of Nidgey here has been “it’s the Russian that did it!”

      The same tactic has been used in the case of the Skripals.
      Still no evidence from the previous Minister for Foreign Affairs, now Prime Minister, Boris the clown.
      I beginning to suspect he has no evidence.

      Where are the Skripals being held I wonder?
      Skripal’s handler was Pablo Miller.
      Miller was prominent in the Steele Dossier affair thru known links to Fusion GPS.
      Follow the clues and it becomes kind of obvious who and why…
