well, we don't need these "refunazis" in our countries. that they sod the fuck back off to their own countries and take their racism with them


Need Russia to stop destabilising the Middle East then.


I see. I must have been hallucinating when they said the US, Britain and France were bombing syria.

Russia were also responsible for removing Saddam and Gaddafi, or so it emerges.

Too bad Killary wasn't elected. She would have secured peace with Russia, with violence if necessary.


As long as Russia and the USA are on opposing sides in Syria, there will be instability.

We could blame the USA as well but from Germany’s point of view, it’s surely Russia’s fault.

These Syrians would have loved to have stayed in Syria. I know Syrian people and I know others who have visited Syria. Apparently it was lovely. Apparently Aleppo was awesome - liberal and with a thriving night life. But now there’s a refugee crisis because a war that is being kept going partly, deliberately or otherwise, because of the USA and Russia.

Nine dead, sixteen hurt as a van hit pedestrians in Toronto. Not a car accident.

Very horrible. Trying to reach my cousin ATM. He was in the area over the weekend. Don't know if he was there during this.

I have two friends who live in Toronto, have messaged both of them to see if they are ok, as neither has been on since the van massacre.

Just got messaged back, they are both safe, Tristan had friend who witnessed it from 20 feet away. That is traumatizing close.

He say's "Crazy. Suicide by cop.

That doesn't work here. They subdued him without firing a shot."

Part of a Canadian news report"Yet one possible explanation has emerged online that suggests Minassian was angry over being rebuffed by women.

An apparent Facebook post by a man with the same name and photo as Minassian's LinkedIn profile refers to the "Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger," a 22-year-old responsible for a deadly rampage in Isla Vista, Calif., that left six people dead and a dozen more injured.

In a video posted ahead of that 2014 attack, Rodger raged about a number of women turning down his advances, rendering him an "incel," or involuntarily celibate. Rodger referred to the men who always seemed to win with women as "Chads" and the women who turned men down as "Stacys."

Deadly van 'attack' not part of organized terror plot, says Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale
The apparent posting by Minassian says the "incel rebellion has already begun. We will overthrow all the Chads and the Stacys."

CBC News has not been able to independently verify the post as having been written by Minassian."

Wish I could attach a link, as there is a video of the man, but anything I could come up with would be time sensitive and outdated soon.

Patron saint of my country's armed forces, my hometown, as well as the neighbouring Romanian town Giurgiu (across the Danube from my city).

The pre-Christian symbol Madara Rider, carved in a rock near Shumen, Bulgaria is one of the symbols of my country. It is believed that it's Thracian in origin, though some historians place it much earlier in history. St. George, as many other Christian symbols and figures, was (ahem!) "borrowed" from pagan sources. The warrior horseman figure is found all over Europe and Asia, and can be seen as far as Iran and Afghanistan.

Yeah... I'm not happy about ultra-nationalists co-opting that image either.
