Just Google "Ukraine Nazis" and you will find a score of news reports, magazine articles and documentaries from a few years ago about the extreme right in Ukraine from the very same news outlets that now deny they exist.

Desert T...

This was an attack on the Pakistani police.

Yes, they didn't worry that many ordinary worshippers would also be killed.

I can't find info on the mosque. But does look a little too large and grand to be Shia in that area. However, the Iranians have deep pockets.

However it looks like their plans have backfired and now that there has been a falling out between the Afghan Taliban and Pakistan, the TTP which anyways was at war with the state of Pakistan over their support to Americans is now giving them a taste of their own medicine.

No, just more of the usual Saudi Wahabi inspired murder of Shia.

Become a drug addict, alcoholic or eat until you are too fat to walk? Don't worry the tax payer and NHS will bail you out. Get drunk start a fight, need stitches and treatment for broken bones? No problem we got you covered. Pregnant and from a developing country? Come on in, you should pay but it's racist to ask if you a UK citizen so its all on the tax payer.

They catch the Minke which is not endangered. If your only problem is Whales are cute or Whales are intelligent or love their young then please stop eating sheep and cows.

No culture has the right to make changes to other cultures diet. For religious, economic, cuteness or any other reasons.

20 million traffic stops every year. Black drivers are stopped 1.5 times more than white ones.

Do you also know the rates of criminality ? For comparison...

But good to see that its not just white cops are racist, black cops are racist too.

How to respect the life of an endangered sea creature by eating it ?

Not all whales are endangered. If the whale meat in question is NOT endangered then why can't it be eaten? Because you think its cute? Who gave the western middle class the right to decide the diets of the world?

The Gloucester Old spot is a very rare breed of pig. Should we stop eating pork to preserve it? Or just not eat the endangered species?

Posted in: An organization has sent a petition with 11,127 online signatures to prosecutors seeking a reduced sentence for Tetsuya Yamagami, who has been indicted for the murder of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and asking that they consider Yamagami's upbringing and his mother's massive donations to the Unification Church in his trial. What's your view on this? See in context

Sven Asai...

No way, murder is murder. He could have joined the other victims of that church who fight on TV , press or media conferences and through jurisdiction system etc. for their cause.

And been completely ignored as he was for many years. Mr Yamagami's actions resulted in real change and people taking notice. Perhaps if the LDP and other politicians were not hand in hand with the cult poor Mr Abe would still be alive.

Only 11,000? I think the majority of the population would support a light sentence considering the circumstances and the light now brought on the cult that will save others from the fate of Yamagami's family.

Whoever is collecting signatures needs to get more publicity.

Its a great system. In many western countries these idiots would be free, waiting for their "community service orders" or suspended sentences. Hopefully they will get a couple of years to think about their actions and fully compensate the victims.

Millions of Ukrainians faced electricity shortages after Thursday's missile and drone strikes, the latest to target energy facilities and deprive people of heat, light and water.

Russian air attacks hit five high-voltage substations in the central, southern and southwest regions on Thursday.

How are these facilities being destroyed when the Ukrainians say they are shooting down all the drones and missiles?

What else are the Ukrainians not being honest about?

Dracula was "born" in 1897 making him 126

Superman in 1938 making him only 85. My own father is older than him!
