    Obviously, they want to keep track of the local Jews so they can protect them from the antisemetic, fascist jackboots of the alleged Kiev regime.

    This is a great reminder of why I stopped reading these threads. Pushilin pretty much immediately confirmed that the flier is fake. The local jewish community isn't concerned, either.

    Don't worry though, you can keep the circlejerk going - I hear Russians are taking Ukrainian babies out of incubators and leaving them to die.

    Russia's invaded the nation of Ukraine, held a sham referendum, annexed a large portion of it entirely under plainly illegal circumstances, thrown unmarked soldiers into Eastern Ukraine the repeat the tactic, caused hundreds of deaths in violence directly caused by the military actions of soldiers and militants, and is actively destabilising a sovereign nation, publically signalled a return to Novorossiya which includes Transnistria, all while exerting total control over local media. And yet, after the hundreds of posts that have been happening during these events, you only feel fit to pop in and act holier than thou over a single pamphlet that appears to have been fake.

    Come on. Differing opinions are great, and if you're going to try and present a more sympathetic view of Russian actions, or more skeptical view of Euromaidan-aligned outlets, that's cool. Great, even, as this would be more a debate than the news dump it's largely become. All you're doing with this routine is becoming a laughing stock. Not because your stance is wrong, but because you've shown you have no interest in rationally defending it, just insulting others who disagree.

    So turns out Fatty O'Barrel couldn't recollect receiving a 1959 bottle of Grange and then writing a thank-you note for it.

    The prime minister, Tony Abbott, hailed O’Farrell’s resignation as “an act of integrity, an act of honour the like of which we have rarely seen in Australian politics [since I was elected]”.

    i liked the bit where he tried to admonish a reporter for saying the government was corrupt, saying 'we should have standards, including the media'

    great fucking example you're setting, Abbott. Oh yeah... all those standards the elected government is setting... exactly the kinds of things you want people to emulate

    Not to mention that mere suspicions of Labor politicians required immediate resignation and blackened the entire party... but accepting bribes as a Liberal is the height of ethics.

    This shit is why I don't bother watching the news any more. It's just fucking depressing. No matter what happens, we're stuck with this lot pissing on the country with smug grins on their hypocritical faces for another 3 years. And I'm doubtful we'll get rid of them even then, given that the media's humping their leg, with the only holdouts (ABC, SBS) cowed by funding threats.

    I can't even get angry about it any more. Australia made its bed, now we get to sleep in it. They won. It's over.

    All that's left is to see the feigned shock from the morons who voted them in and didn't expect rampant cuts and selloffs to every sector of the government in the May budget.

    That graph reminds of one of Fish-Eyed Fuckface McGee Monckton's purported graphs that either he himself or his similarly debilitated cronies had put together. The graph plotted the increase of sea levels and hailed originally from the university of Colorado, and ah yes, here it is, scroll down to the second image:

    Someone had had a massive cranial hemorrhage, and slanted the entire fucking graph sideways, such that it gives the illusion of sea levels remaining the same, when the trend is absolutely, positively positive.

    Man, fuck that guy. I've never met, seen or heard of a bigger douchenozzle.

    That is amazing.

    Russia trolls the US, and it's a day that ends in Y.
    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, U.S. military officials said Monday.

    In the first public account of the incident, the officials said the Russian Fencer made 12 passes, and flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level.

    The U.S. warship issued several radio queries and warnings using international emergency circuits, but the Russian aircraft did not respond.

    "This provocative and unprofessional Russian action is inconsistent with international protocols and previous agreements on the professional interaction between our militaries," said Army Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman.

  • [Ukraine] Putin annexes old thread, please move to the new one.

    From Reddit:
    I have a lot of experience with AR-15 series rifles and military equipment. I noticed a few similarities between the two men in the pictures. Here's a little analysis on the equipment in both pics and the accessories on each respective rifle.

    Identical accessories on the rifles:
    Both rifles have Magpul CTR collapsible stocks. This is a very popular aftermarket stock but this is only the second time one has been seen during the Ukraine Crisis.
    Both rifles have 20 round Magpul P-mags with Ranger plates fitted to the mags.
    Both rifles appear to be using the same suppressor. An exact brand isn't discerned because are no brand marks on the exterior of it.
    Both rifles have bipods fitted to the gas block.

    Differing accessories on the rifles:

    Crimea rifle has a high powered scope.
    Eastern Ukraine rifle has an EO tech holographic sight with magnifier.

    Similar / Identical gear on the riflemen:

    Gorka uniforms (this is a wash as these uniforms are very popular).
    Both riflemen have two UCP pattern mag pouches mounted on the right side of their assault vests. For all out there, UCP is one of the few grey uniforms out there and is most widely used by the US Army.
    Both riflemen have a UCP pattern utility pouch mounted on the left lower side of the their assault vests.
    Both riflemen appear to have nickle plated sidearms (exact type unknown) holstered on their right thigh.
    Both riflemen are wearing green MOLLE vests.

    Based on this, I would have to say either this is the same guy that was in Crimea or a part of the same group that was in Crimea. Then again, it could be pure coincidence.
