Come on ethan, the rebuttal "we only backed the sdf in the east and not the west" is hardly worth a "shut the fuck up".

Even the author continually tries to acknowledge the potential perceived ridiculousness.



Anyway, there's a lot worse when you get into the CIA backing that Nusra used to receive nest.gif

Nusra has only received support by proximity and by weapons laundering front groups.

Not ME, but the attacks in Pakistan were horrible. Lahore was so far spared such atrocities as far as I know, and now this senseless carnage targeting average women and children. I hope these monsters are dealt with.

Of course, no outrage, #jesuispakistan (#meinpakistanhoun ?) doesn't exist, etc.

I've seen the first of those 2 # on FB and its been covered extensively on the news.

One can only hope that it will get the Pakistani government to wake up and stop being a safe haven for terrorists, but we all know they won't.

Not to worry! Before we know it, Angelina Jolie will remind us all what a terrible human beings we all are before departing in a private cortege to her private plane to bring the World .....herself.

Plane in Egypt hijacked by a man wearing a suicide belt. Maybe its time Egyptian airports start trying security checks.

The value of human life in Egypt is approximately 0.

according to an npr story recently, women especially have protested the government's clamping down on uber (and hakim or whatever the dubai-based one is called) because they are cleaner and the drivers are more respectful, especially since they take courses on sexual harassment etc

then again, as they say there, misr um ad-dunya so that explains why the world is imploding biggrin.gif
