    Alois felt his head spinning, nearly turning his coughing fit into one of vomiting, as he came to. Just opening his eyes was a significant struggle, much less pulling himself up onto his feet. They...

    Absolutely disgusting and tragic on all fronts. A noose, a can of gas and a lighter would be too kind for the rapists, but heads need to roll among those cops and politicians who put 'racial...
  5. Re: Iraqi protesters storm U.S. embassy in Baghdad

    Honestly I don't think it'll happen, at least not in the form of a sudden and unilateral expulsion of US forces. The Iraqis know they can't stand on their own two feet yet, and have already dialed...

    Meanwhile in reality, Iraqis are literally celebrating in the streets at the news of Soleimani's death. They're doing this even in Basra, which is almost as far south as you can get in Southern Iraq...

    Yeah yeah, whatever. I bet Soleimani was thinking similar thoughts right before he got gibbed. If the next guy has any brains, he'll take a careful look of what remains of his predecessor while...
