This is my first time on this site, so i would like to open up with a BIG topic of HYDROFRACKING. I believe that this is a very good thing for our society today, both horizontal and vertical alike.

Why soccer is way better than football?

Poiyurt

Soccer may not be as popular as football in America, but throughout the world, soccer is the main sport. In England, France, and Germany, the soccer fans in those countries outnumber the football fans throughout the world. Those three countries alone, that shows soccer is the sport over there. Second, soccer was created 6,500 years before football, by the ancient Chinese. Third, soccer has the most exciting overtime period(s) in all of sports.

I would personally like to debate with someone who actually watched the majority of the trial (a few clips does not count). I would also ask that any racial prejudices be cast aside in this...

After pressuring President Yanukovych into not signing the EU Association Agreement, Russia then effectively offered Ukraine $15 billion as a thank you gift. However, the Euromaidan protesters refused to accept this and finally, when the bloodshed became too much to deal with, Yanukovych fled Kiev. Knowing that a democratic government would be contrary to their interests, Vladimir Putin sent troops into Crimea. They quickly occupied airports and forced Ukrainian soldiers out of military bases...
