The UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown made a startling confession during the investigation of evidence of possible crimes that took place by the US and UK in the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

"I never subscribed to what you might call the neo-conservative proposition that somehow, at the barrel of a gun, overnight, liberty or democracy could be conjured up," Brown told the panel."

Isn't that the very foundation of the 'Shake and Bake' regional governments and regional Afghan police forces now being poured into Marjah? A major allie, namely the Prime Minister of Britain states he doesn't think the 'Shake and Bake' mentality is going to work, nor does he even subscribe to the very notion that is sound or plausible!

WOW! Didn't Gen. McCrystal even ask the UK Prime Minister what he thought about the current war plan in Afghanistan BEFORE coming up with this 'Shake and Bake' elaborate overnight governments and security forces?

I know alot of crazy things are going on in the world and you have plenty to talk about. I wonder why the American Trucker is never mentioned. Just check it out, fuel prices, brokers and all the taxes. I wonder how we are supposed to make a living. I think it's a cover up.
Don't worry Larry, I'm not crazy like the pentagon shooter and the guy flying the plane, but I am pissed off in America.


Dee Dee   March 5th, 2010 10:08 pm ET

Please Jeff, button up your shirt. We don't need to see your chest hair. You are sitting in for the King in prime time, show some respect. You are not on an island, it would be nice if you looked more professional.

When a wild animal in captivity has a bad day, it often turns into a disaster. Very few people realize how powerful something as small as a monkey or a ocelot can be if that animal decides to act up.

I was once grabbed by a large male baboon in a city zoo, thankfully I escaped unharmed but I left with a great deal of appreciation how powerful that baboon's relatively tiny hands and grip could be!

Sadly, the real story on why a wild animal that has been in captivity for a long time or kept as a pet suddenly lashes out at the public or its 'owner' is SELDOM ever found nor 'stated'. In nearly every case the wild animals side of the story is entirely unspoken and they are 'put-down', shot, or euthanized.


M.E. Wilcox   March 5th, 2010 10:21 pm ET

Wild animals are wild, regardless of the circumstances of their captivity. Keeping a wild animal as a pet is a selfish action which causes immense suffering to the animal. Preventing a wild animal from living in its natural state – roaming, socializing with its own kind, breeding – is inhumane. It is not at all surprising when a wild animal attacks its owner, but sadly it is the animal that is killed for acting instinctually. Personal pleasure must not be based on the suffering of animals.


David Kaas   March 5th, 2010 10:33 pm ET

The "Montauk Project" experimented for 30 years on the same effects induced in humans under controlled radio impulses. This is available to ALL on the YouTube now to see! These affects are now evidenced in the behavioral patterns noticed in the captivity of wild, and domestic creatures alike. The human factor can also be observed once again in the latest reports concerning suicide plane attacks on IRS facilities, as well as people in general killing publicly for no apparent reason! These are now attributed to just chance, but there is something dark and sinister behind it all. My next elections predictions do not include a Republican or Democrat winning in the 2012 elections for some specific unknown reasons!


David Kaas   March 5th, 2010 10:36 pm ET

Can your hair color this last year be attributed to your hair dresser, or is there another reason for the color change? Also your complexion appears to be more youthful each time I tune you in. Is there some secret formula that you are using.


Jean   March 5th, 2010 10:44 pm ET

I was brought up in an environment where it is unheard of to keep dangerous animals as pets. We have absolutely nothing to do with dangerous animals.
People who keep exotic animals as they are called do have a psychological problem.
First of all these animals are costly to keep, to feed and are dangerous to the point of killing their very own owners, family members, friends and visitors. They are looking for trouble by keeping those dangerous animals as pets. They are not pets and are not to be treated as such! They are dangerous animals. It is not OK to have them as pets and in a human environment. Let us make no excuses for them.
For goodness sake these people are humans and not animals. Why can they not adopt a baby, an older child or be foster parents? These sound more feasible to me.
Why not have a bird, an owl and such tame animals by nature as pets?
Exotic animals appear to be a better word to describe them but they are dangerous animals. The government should never allow those dangerous animals to be imported in countries as the US, Canada and Europe.
I do wish that the government would take steps to prevent them from being imported to those countries.
Dangerous animals are to be kept in their own habitat such as the wild where they belong.
In any case, let us face a fact, if these people are religious, they would not be messing around with dangerous animals; calling them pets. They are in dire need of God's blessings and graces so that they would worship God rather than dangerous animals. We cannot go wrong worshipping God. There are spiritual benefits to be derived which are out of this world.


Nolan W.   March 5th, 2010 10:48 pm ET

I just had to comment on this one, I believe that Tigers, Bears, Chimps and Venomous Snakes should only be kept when you have a permit by the state that you live in and only that. For all other animals and reptiles they should be kept cause if you know how to handle them, feed them, and take care of them and including cageing them correctly you should be able 100% own them. In the case that reptiles attacking and killing a human is only like 1 in a million and more people die from gun shots and drunk driving but that will never be outlawed cause IT'S OUR RIGHT, well shouldn't owning a animal that is caged correctly like almost all of us exotic animal owners do, shouldn't that be OUR RIGHT, but no it's not turning out that way and if these animals become outlawed the unemployment rate will go through the roof and more people will be on walfare or unemployment, IT IS OUR RIGHT AS AMERICAN CITIZENS TO KEEP THESE ANIMALS AND IF THESE LAWS DO PASS I WILL NEVER LIKE AMERICA AGAIN AND I WILL MOVE OUT OF THIS COUNTRY, TO A COUNTRY WHERE I AM FREE..


Georgia   March 5th, 2010 10:49 pm ET

My question for all these people who buy these exotics animals is:
Once you realize you no longer can keep these animals and you look for sanctuaries, do you not realize how many sanctuaries are full because of people like you. It seems the only person here who is winnng is the breeder, they get a ton of money while sanctuaries get nohing, or worse yet the animal pays with his life. If you love these animals then why do you put their lives at risk for your selfish reasons.


Donald   March 5th, 2010 10:58 pm ET

What kind of sicko would want a wild animal around as a (so called) pet, or even worse a reptile. How can something that under the right circumstances that would kill you be a pet? Reptiles are cold blooded and do not have any emotional attachment to you. When a snake kills it's owner I don't care, thats natures way of weeding out the weakest link.


Ecoliterate   March 5th, 2010 11:02 pm ET

What a hoot! The irony in all of this is, the number one animal killer in the USA is pet dogs. Every year, dogs kill and bite and injure more humans than chimps, reptiles and bears and sharks all combined. Awwww, but they have such an immense lobby, backed by tv commercials, pet stores and soothing animal love, the right kinda of animal love! Loving the right kinda animal gives such fuel to the economy.

How many dogs kill children and adults every year, but heay, that's the right kinda animal love, right! We've been brainwashed to love the right animals, as long as they are warm, purr and cozy furry.


Donald   March 5th, 2010 11:11 pm ET

Ecoliterate, thats so lame.Do you know how to adjust numbers of wild animals that kill vs domestic animal kills based on percentages. Very few people have wild animals as pets compared to just about every household in America having dogs, so even the smallest fraction of wild animals killing is a lot more than dogs. If this is too much for you to understand ask an elementary teacher to explain it to you.


luckybee   March 6th, 2010 12:48 am ET

Exotic animals are not pets,they're wild and like meet to eat, and you are for them nothing but a peace of meet., that they can eat.And if they find nothing else to eat than you,you may end in his stomach.


jack   March 6th, 2010 1:37 am ET

@A. Smith Oregon..I can relate. I once stopped at a roadside attraction , and the monkey by the door( which I assumed was supposed to be gentle) suddenly scratched me, and acted wild. Also, when I was a child , a racoon, which was supposed to be tame , bit me, Word to the wise: Allow wild animals to stay in the wild. If they become endangered , then put them in safe, natural areas to increase their numbers. Please, do not try to humanize wild animals. You can see, from the terrible chimp mauling , that this approach of humanizing wild animals is crazy.


jack   March 6th, 2010 1:49 am ET

OK, You got a pet. Everything is cool. Then suddenly you die. Will yer cat or pooch call help? No! They will revert to the natural beast and eat yer body with gusto. That is a well attested fact. Not blaming the animals, that is just the cold hard facts of life. If you want to keep poisonous snakes in yer habitat, that is fine. But you better know what you are doing.You better be very well informed to keep exotic animals, and your firrst priority should be a loving interest in perpetuating the breed, not some ego trip. Remember , everythingis fun until someone loses an eye, or worse. :_)

Having wild animals as pets is pretty selfish on our part. they are wild animals and need to be respected. When this (respect) is lost, you can have disastrous situations, and then well...blame it on the 'Wild' animal who should never have been tamed...Yes ...admire and have affection for them, however, do not take their response for granted....


darcy   March 6th, 2010 8:48 am ET

When are people going to realize these animals were never intended to be raised as pets. We humans think because an animal looks cute you can treat it as a child. We are doing them a great disservice when we do this. To me there is no respect for your animal when you treat it like it a human. Circus animals who have to perform in a circus is disrepectful. Even the owners of the tiger who performed in Vegas attacked the owner which surprise him . He & his partner were shocked this happened. It can never be 100% proof incidents like this will never happened. The chimp who attacked his owner's friend was given ativan by his owner earlier in the day because of his erratic behaviour–had had a prior incdent but wasn't serious. The owner didn't call animal services or the police.. no she called her friend & we all know the result of yhat. The womaan 's eyes had to be removed,such facial dis figurement. The owner states she would do it all over again she misses the chimp soo much. If that was me...I would be living with such guilt due to the trauma my pet had caused.

This has got to be the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen on Larry King LIve. I thought he was intelligent, I guess not. And the Psychology should have her license removed, actually trying to "diagnose" exotic animal keepers and then discredit the science of herpetology? What happened to this show using intelligence and not cutting people off that are on the opposing side. What has America Come to? We should all take a good hard look at ourselves here. You think our economy is in a bad spot now, lets just keep on cutting viable american industries. I know no one will care what I think, thats what is so sad about the whole thing. No facts, and completely one sided. Larry King you should be ashamed of yourself. Matt Olsen

P.S the one called"luchybee" maybe go back to school before commenting on things you know nothing about. I laughed so hard when reading these messages. "Peace of meet" come on MAN this is a huge JOKE!! And everyone involved in this multi billion dollar business knows it. And we will prevail, this is America where we are willing to fight for our rights to the end!! here is Lucky bees post I hope you get a laugh.
"Exotic animals are not pets,they're wild and like meet to eat, and you are for them nothing but a peace of meet., that they can eat.And if they find nothing else to eat than you,you may end in his stomach."
OBVIOUSLY AN UNEDUCATED PERSON.


GTH   March 6th, 2010 1:15 pm ET

simple answer: NO!! And as far as the domestic dog it is rarely the animals' fault. It's the people who won them


Ecoliterate   March 6th, 2010 1:47 pm ET

First of all, a wild rabbits brain is twice the size of a domesticated rabbit. Wild species are far more intelligent than domestic animals. Our societal voices have been not only riddled with racism and bigotry, but specism is rampant in these societal voices that dumb down and brainwash Americans.

I have spent years interacting with truly wild species, and everything I have noted has been in conflict with the societal voice that dictates which animals are lovable and intelligent. I have spent most of my adult life interfacing with wild birds and reptiles. I have personally studied wild lizards; they are inverse to everything our society, our culture, dictates.

I have had wild lizards jump into my hands, crawl on my shoulders, arms and body. They learn their names in one day and begin to obey verbal commands in two or three days! I have personally witnessed amazing attributes in these animals, including their ability to reason and think. Lizards do as well as any mammal in a scientific maze or labyrinth. A friend of mine, with graduate degrees, is an animal behaviorlist. The only pets she has are wild lizards, brought into captivity.

We are rift with cliches, a flawed worldview and societal voices that dictate how we think and reason. My pets are dogs; however, I am totally aware that reptiles are far more intelligent than recognized. And, I am an extremely intelligent person. Perhaps, I just have a higher level of consciousness, like most highly gifted adults.

Most Americans are so brainwashed with societal voices and archaic thinking, beliefs steeped centuries ago, they can never think outside that narrow, little box.


Dodie   March 6th, 2010 2:58 pm ET

@ Ecoliterate

Very engaging name. I personally like Ecoliteratisms!!!

A person who has the capacity of understand the web of life! Now that is a novel idea! Possibly Homo sapiens are not the most intelligent… after all, everything is relative! Now who would ever think Octopodidae are more intelligent than Homo sapiens? Certainly not humans.

Your verbal flatulence is whipped in wit with a taste of humor, makes for an enjoyable read!


Ecoliterate   March 6th, 2010 3:34 pm ET

Did yawl realize, according to evolution, mankind as well as other mammalian species, evolved from the stem reptile? This giant lizard gave rise to most vertebrates, including man. Today, science refers to a portion of the human brain as, "the reptilian portion of the human brain".

A huge lizard gave birth to man and was the first specie that permitted vertebrates to procreate outside of water. They carried their eggs inside of their body in a watery world.

Most of the, " duhhh those evil and really dumb reptiles" came from the tale of that evil snake in the garden of eden. Sadly, snakes are the finest rodent control on the Earth. With their long, sleek bodies, they can slide right down into a rodent hole. Personally, I like snakes alot more than the plague and the black death.

Snakes, like all reptiles - if they are native to their ecosystem - are in the economics of keeping the Earth life-giving and mankind alive. Pandemics have wiped out more of mankind than all animals combined . One scientist once said, man's best friend is most assuredly not dogs but lizards and snakes, both species protect man from pests and deadly pandemics.

Today, according to official sources, approximately 700 bases of every size dot the Afghan countryside, and more are under construction or soon will be as part of a base-building boom that began last year.

Existing in the shadows, rarely reported on and little talked about, this base-building program is nonetheless staggering in size and scope, and heavily dependent on supplies imported from abroad, which means that it is also extraordinarily expensive. It has added significantly to the already long secret list of Pentagon property overseas and raises questions about just how long, after the planned beginning of a draw down of American forces in 2011, the U.S. will still be garrisoning Afghanistan.

It appears the American people are being lied to in regards to the scope of the US Military's involvement in Afghanistan as well as the enormous amounts of American taxpayer dollars being poured into Afghanistan. 700 Bases in Afghanistan alone, some as large or larger than regular city's here in America?

Meanwhile Americans at home are languishing with very high unemployment, a very poor economy and a rapid decline in the value of the American dollar. An entire generation of America's future has now been loss thru the lack in public funding in our Public Schools, Federal Grants and Scholarships in Colleges. Public schools are being forced to make severe cuts in their hours and teaching staff. Colleges are being forced to make drastic tuition hikes making it difficult if not entirely impossible for many family's now to send their children to college.

Here in Oregon, a full 10% of the entire Public School student body are homeless teens, sleeping on park benches and under freeway overpasses. The homeless teens are by law unable to find shelter in Adult facility's and invariably a size able number will eventually end up in America's vast prison system which hoses American taxpayers some 75,000 dollars per prisoner per year.

It appears the Republican party and their Republican lawmakers feel it is better to flood America's prisons with America's uneducated teenagers than help finance their education which would cost far less and benefit society far more.


Cynder Moon   March 6th, 2010 5:04 pm ET

As a snake "rescuer" and keeper, I can tell you – I trust my Burmese Python 1000 times more than my neighbor's viscous cock a poodle mutant dog that she refuses to walk on a leash !!
First of all, snakes DO NOT attack without provocation. Whether its because they weren't fed in a timely manner or were left sitting in their own feces, its the act of the owner that causes most aggression cases. Trust me – I would attack too under those circumstances.
Some people just need to get out of their religious ignorance with snakes and realize that these animals are precious and gentle when treated appropriately. Stop attacking them !!! Stay out of their dens and ilegalise the rattlesnake roundups. Shame on you Sweetwater, Texas, and Jaycees too !!!! I say " Ban the Bible for good, and stop propagating hurt and violence to Gods wonderful creatures"


Cynder Moon   March 6th, 2010 5:19 pm ET

Please let me comment that "Jaycees', the youth organization was being referred to in my post. NOT Jaycee, the girl of the horrible kidnapping.
Sorry if there is a misunderstanding.


A. Smith, Oregon   March 6th, 2010 6:13 pm ET

On Saturday non-American news agency's shocked the world when they published the report that the man chosen to be Marjah, Afghanistan's new civilian chief has a violent criminal record in Germany. Western officials said they are not pushing to oust him.

Court records and news reports in Germany showed that Abdul Zahir, the man appointed as Marjah's new civilian chief, served part of a more than four-year prison sentence for stabbing his own son in 1998. Zahir denied he committed any crime.

All of the American and Allied Soldiers deaths in Marjah, just so a brutal man could be forced upon the residents of Marjah at the point of the Allied machine guns.

Is this the shining example of Gen. McChrystal's 'shake and bake' government for Marjah to be used as a cookie cutter form for other Afghanistan regions?

This news report appears to entirely validate the story's that the residents of Marjah feel the Afghanistan Govt. is entirely corrupt and do not trust the Afghanistan Police force that the new 'shake and bake' strategy is forcing upon them.

The Marjah residents have repeatedly complained the new Afghanistan Police force that was forced upon them steals their belongings, demands bribes for routine services and is ripe with graft and corruption.

A man sent to a prison in Germany for stabbing his own son, that is the thug America has chosen to lead Marjah's new Govt.??

Mission Accomplished, Time for America and its troops to come Home!

Many in our societal attributes result from reptilian behavior. War is a good example! So for any who feel we do not have reptilian brains, may want to re-examine this scenario.

Metaphorically speaking, there is no comparison between the human and reptilian brain…or is there?


A. Smith, Oregon   March 6th, 2010 11:31 pm ET

Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad seems to be getting frustrated with the present situation.

Recently, Ahmadinejad ordered the entire stockpile of slightly enhanced Uranium Hexafloride to be moved from its deep underground centrafuge bases to a above ground warehouse as if he was begging US and Israeli forces to bomb them.

Of course if that occurred, the resulting huge release of many ton's of radioactive Uranium Hexafloride gas would severely contaminate a large area of Iran and portions of the Middle East, vastly inflaming the Arabic anger at Israel and America.

Now it appears Ahmadinejad has grown weary waiting for Russia to supply them with their promised S-300 mid-range air-defense battery's to further protect Tehran from air strikes. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has ordered all Russian commercial pilots to leave Iran immediately.

Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also went out on his proverbial limb today by issuing a public statement that the American government's version of 911 was a lie.

Perhaps I would agree with many that feel that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is simply trying to provoke America and is growing ever more frustrated with the obstacles which have closed in around him.


Cameron W   March 7th, 2010 7:14 am ET

I watched the video of the lady getting attacked and all i could think about is how stupid. Once again it amazes me how stupid we humans can be. Really wild animal as a pet because you wanted it as a child? I like lions but I'm never going to own one as a pet, how crazy is that. The worse part about having wild animals as pets when they go "crazy" is that the animal usually suffers. The owner gets mad or whatever and usually the animal is put down. Too me that doesn't make any sense. How can you kill a WILD animal for acting wild???? This may seem a bit cruel but i have no sympathy for those who own wild animals and eventually get attacked. If their own fault....you couldn't predict that a leopard, lion, monkey, or whatever wild animal you have will go wild and attack? People stop being morons and don't own wild pets, it hurts them and eventually you. I heard of a person who once owned a tiger and they had the tiger declawed, too me thats cruel because it needs those tools to survive to use. That would be like me putting mittens on you and have you continue living life, like drinking, eating, typing and so on with mittens on. Just doesn't work and makes you uncomfortable. So don't put an animal thru that same torture.


Cameron W   March 7th, 2010 7:18 am ET

By the way is it me or does Jeff Probst seem to always being smirking or half smiling with whatever interview he does? Like he doesn't take any interview series. Larry King is the man, but if LK isn't able to host his own show they should get Dr. Phil to stand in. He was good the last time he subbed for LK


A. Smith, Oregon   March 7th, 2010 6:52 pm ET

As the investigation of the Vatican Prostitute Ring expands, the world is finding out the Pope's own BROTHER is in the middle of one of the area's where alleged sexual abuses took place!

The Regensburg Diocese said last week that a former singer came forward with allegations of sexual abuse in the early 1960s. The German newsweekly Der Spiegel has reported that therapists in the region are treating several alleged sex abuse victims from the choir.

Pope Ratz's brother Georg Ratzinger led the choir from 1964 till 1994.

A man who lived in the choir-linked boarding school until 1967 has contended that "a sophisticated system of sadistic punishments in connection with sexual lust" had been installed there. Der Spiegel quoted the man, Franz Wittenbrink, as saying it would be inexplicable that the pope's brother didn't know anything about it. But of course Georg Ratzinger says he knew nothing about any alleged abuse!

The diocese has said it is hiring a lawyer to help it carry out a "systematic" clarification of abuse allegations. Of course they are huddling together to craft another cover-up and obstruct European Justice agency's looking into this latest wave of sexual abuse, rape and prostitution by the Vatican clergy.

It comes as NO SURPRISE that Pope Ratz has made no public comment on the choir sex abuse scandal in his homeland, where the church has been jolted by sex abuse and rape allegations from more than 170 former students who studied at some of the country's most prominent Catholic schools.

No!! Larry for people who are petrified of just the sight of a snake could get a heart attack or jump onto a train track when these crazy people come on the train with these snakes!


Cynder Moon   March 16th, 2010 1:52 am ET

@kat

I think the people that are 'so called' petrified of a snake are the crazy ones. It's called an irrational phobia, a treatable mental illness. Please don't attempt to lay misplaced guilt trips on those of us that love and care for snakes.
Who knows – the sight of you might give someone a heart attack !!
