    London is the heart of the World, in either way we all think of:

    A) the Supreme of the World,
    B) it produces the best talented human beings,
    C) it Rocks and shuffled the World, whenever it
    D) the current 2 TOW 2 lV Olympic games, is
    not just about the games, but.......

    Most people, who are born and raised in
    London, doesn't know anything-inside of it.
    You must be very wise and genius, to know
    London inside-out.

    E) I predict, England will get more Gold Medals
    than any other Countries.

      You're predicting more gold for the UK than any other country??? Well they'd better start getting with your program. I know its still early, but they still don't have ANY gold yet (just 2 silver and 2 bronze). They've got their work cut out for them if they're going to catch up with China and the US.

      Is English your learned language or are you impaired?

      Looks like you either: 1) need to really learn English; 2) find a better translation program; or 3) BOTH!

    Your opening today, Aug. 29, seemed like a campaign ad for Barack Obama. I feel some of it was in error and from sources that are partisan and questionable. No doubt, we'll be seeing it, or portions of it, this fall in the Obama campaign commercials. News reporting should be even handed but you have always shown your colors to be socialistic and liberal so I shouldn't be surprised. I won't watch any more.

    "Support for Israel" is a stated reason for the 9-11 attack. Is Mitt Romney saying, "Bring'um on?"

    Laptop terrorist Paul Wolfowitz told Congress that “our soldiers would be greeted as liberators and flowers would be thrown to them and revenues from the sale of oil would pay for the rebuilding of Iraq.” It is possible to make rational predictions about a war if one has military experience. This insidious neocon has no moral authority to give advice on any subject. He belongs at Guantanamo!

    I can see why America is no longer number one in education. There should be no place at Princeton for Anne-Marie Slaughter's bellicose mind! Squandering our blood and treasure is sport to this ingrate.

    Mr. Zakaria, you have displayed contempt for our cherished First Amendment freedoms. America deserves better!

      What's ur problem?
      The topic is ...If you want go there and live. Stop barking here, natural complainer. There is no oil or gold mining there. It is a desert Holly land. What are you proud of?
      Saudi-Arabia has Oil and Gold and it supplies to U.S. How about you, what are you supplying???

      If you want, go back to your UFO black hole and send to US postcards, and we will pay for it.

    Someone needs to tell Bob Costas that women do not make up the majority this year as he reported during the opening ceremony. Thanks Bob, I missed that because of you. Can't you read the prompter better?

      Mr. Costas was talking about the fact that there are more females than males in the world.

      He said that women make up the majority of the US Olympic team this year, which is true. The question was about Olympians from all countries. Maybe you shouldn't be too quick to criticize someone else's reading ability!

    1968 Olympics were held in Mexico City not France. Study.

      False. The 1968 Summer Olympics were in Mexico City. The 1968 WINTER Olympics, as noted in the question, were in France. Looks like you are the one that needs to study.

      We thought you were trying to misinform people but, apparantly, you are just ignorant.
      When you lie so much, you start believing your own lies. The truth becomes blurred.
