  1. Re: Non-Biased sources on immigration to Europe? No, not you BBC...

    Except the narrative you're trying to portray in the OP: "So basically poor suffering immigrants are forced by the Hungarian police off a train, and somehow a crying mother is forced onto the tracks,...
  2. Re: Non-Biased sources on immigration to Europe? No, not you BBC...

    Why does the incident have to be referenced in the article as well as the report? It's not terribly important in the whole narrative of these people's journey.

    And putting out a report by the same...
  3. Re: Far-right Europeans hunting non-whites, vandalizing migrant-run stores

    Throwing a live grenade at people is attempted murder, so it's not from lack of trying that they didn't kill anyone.
  4. Re: Non-Biased sources on immigration to Europe? No, not you BBC...

    What exactly do you want? The man was just reporting the scene he had seen, live. He's a human who had just witnessed upsetting scenes. In his later report that I linked, it's obviously a lot more...

    No-one in the history of human interaction has ever misinterpreted what someone said because they thought what went before was linked with what they said after.

    Re: Français (French)

    Je ne peux pas croire que ça fait plus qu'un ans depuis quelqu'un a posté dans ce thread. Est-ce qu'il y a vraiment si peu de Francophones ici maintenant ?
  7. Re: Non-Biased sources on immigration to Europe? No, not you BBC...

    If you really want to be nitpicky, there should be a full stop after "help", but then I don't know why you're even using an argument like "it's all in the same sentence", when there isn't a...

    Depends who offered to sell them the video, I suppose. The Youtube video has a Sky News watermark and the video appears here. Here is a more in-depth article with a still image from the video and the...

    We have no idea where the reporter was when he witnessed this woman on the tracks. He could have been at the back of a crowd, a crowd that was trying to be brought under control by police in riot...

    Re: Cologne and other NYE disorders

    Sexual assault is only a problem once Muslims come to the West? It's a huge problem in Muslim countries, too, but it's simply compounded by the mistaken belief that Western women are somehow "easy".

  14. Re: [Election-XXII-2015] Magistrate - Debate Thread

    What do you think constitutes an off-topic personal reference that's worthy of an infraction? I'd appreciate two examples: one of a reference that you wouldn't infract for (i.e. it'd just merit a...
  15. Re: Obviously the solution to terrorism is no free wifi and other nefarious things!

    This has become something of a moot point after the French Prime Minister has said that he's not planning on banning public Wi-Fi.
  16. Re: Obviously the solution to terrorism is no free wifi and other nefarious things!

    The state of emergency requires regular renewal by the Assemblée Nationale; it can't just be extended indefinitely and I seriously doubt it will last longer than the manhunt for those associated with...
  17. Re: Obviously the solution to terrorism is no free wifi and other nefarious things!

    Remember that one of these measures is only taking place during the state of emergency, which is a pretty exceptional occurrence.
  18. Re: Obviously the solution to terrorism is no free wifi and other nefarious things!

    They're not trying to ban free wifi because it would be helpful to do so in the midst of a terrorist attack; they're banning it because there are still suspects on the run and/or still in France that...

    Re: Terrorist attack in Paris

    Oh and do you remember how well things went the last time the West tried to "clean out" Iraq? Leave it to local forces, support them logistically, but don't create a power vacuum like before.

    [VOTE FINISHED: PASSED: IMPLEMENTED] Re: [Amendment] Uncontested Elections

    That's what I was getting at. All that was needed was clarification that in this case, abstention meant "no", or your solution to change the poll options in the case of someone being uncontested.

    [VOTE FINISHED: PASSED: IMPLEMENTED] Re: [Amendment] Uncontested Elections

    We could make it a "no" vote. For all intents and purposes, if there's only 1 person in the election, an abstention is a "no" vote for that candidate.
