Looks like you can't read. Rottenrocker called him a rapist. The swedish prosecutors have stopped the procedure. Still Rottenrocker calls him a rapist.

:ws:


It doesn't matter whether the process was stopped or not. They stopped it because of a legal expiration date, not because they found him not guilty. So your assessment is faulty there.

The real reasons to find this bogus are that the entire charge is based on a removed condom during consensual sex--which cannot and never will be proven--and the charge is levied against him by someone with verified CIA links. Keep in mind the charges were brought just two years or so after the Snowden revelations right when Wikileaks was at the top of its game. If you consider all of this and it still doesn't all reek of horseshit to you, then you probably can't smell.

What a great conversation piece.

Wait, so what are we discussing? :? You've not even made a comment...

Does it always need to become a conversation? It's a good factoid to post. I do it all the time too.

Cool, let's start a new trend. It would certainly take the bickering out of the bickering forum if we're not talking to each other.

Jerusalem is tripartite, no one side has special rights to the land there. That's the tough reality that all parties must open their minds to.

Watch A Sitting Congresswoman Shred The MSM Narrative In Under A Minute
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-01- ... der-minute

(Tulsi Gabbard)

Quote:
At this point an incredulous Stephanopoulos stopped the Congresswoman and asked, "Was it a mistake for the United States to take out Gaddafi and Hussein?" Gabbard responded firmly with, "It was, absolutely." Apparently this was enough to end the interview as a presumably shocked Stephanopoulos had no response at that point.

Montenegro, Croatia tourism soars as vacationers increasingly avoid shithole countries:

http://www.balkaninsight.com/en/article ... 07-05-2016

Quote:
Montenegro and Croatia expect positive spin-offs in terms of extra holidaymakers, as visitors switch to those countries from now unstable Turkey, but also from Tunisia and Egypt.

The shift to the two countries comes as terrorist attacks in Turkey, and earlier in Tunisia and Egypt, and warnings from Western governments for their citizens to avoid travel to those countries, have led many seeking inexpensive beach holidays to look elsewhere.

Hilarious given that they fought for that travesty of a 'country' themselves. Then again, if thinking was these ladies' strong point, they would not be in this mess to begin with.

Oxford University gives women more time to pass exams than men, it has been revealed.

Do women really just want equality of outcome?

And it is in America too:

http://www.latimes.com/local/california ... story.html

Asians get screwed the most, black and Latino students get ahead on Uni admissions in the land of opportunity!

Quote:
“Let's talk about Asians,” she says.

Lee's next slide shows three columns of numbers from a Princeton University study that tried to measure how race and ethnicity affect admissions by using SAT scores as a benchmark. It uses the term “bonus” to describe how many extra SAT points an applicant's race is worth. She points to the first column.

African Americans received a “bonus” of 230 points, Lee says.

She points to the second column.

“Hispanics received a bonus of 185 points.”

The last column draws gasps.

Asian Americans, Lee says, are penalized by 50 points — in other words, they had to do that much better to win admission.


Underachievers win, true intelligence loses.

Adding this to the US thread as well; just wanted both Education stories in the same thread.

Feminism has left the equality path long time ago. What they want is advantage.

Maybe it's better for the other nations if the USA is not part of it.

So the Turks have invaded [even more of] Syria. They call it "Operation Olive Branch" - I guess because you can beat someone to death with that branch? :up2:

Anyway, they say it is to go in and stomp the Kurdish PKK/YPG. Or maybe just maybe they really want to seize Aleppo from Syria - we'll have to wait and see.

The USA is really browned off about all this, since the Kurds are the main force there guaranteeing US interests (whatever those are) are being advanced. Other groups like the FSA, not so much.

Syria's civil war: It's like a soap opera with guns. It's like a WWE PPV, only where people who seem dead actually are.

I am 100% convinced that this was in the works between Turkey and Russia for some time. Putin has always been playing the long game, and probably approached Erdogan a couple of years ago saying "look, we all know that the US is playing favourites with the Kurds. We all know that ISIS will eventually lose, and by then the Kurds will have territory with your border. And let's face it, you're not going to topple Assad with the islamist groups that you support, now that we are here, so why don't we come up to a compromise? How can the US be your ally when they are supplying weapons to the Kurds? Let us take Aleppo and Idlib without your interference, and then you can wipe out the Kurds at your own pace, we will object in public to it, but will open up our airspace to you in order to do it, since you'll need to call in airstrikes. And don't worry about Assad, he's our dog, we'll make sure he stays on his leash and gives you no problems"

100% for sure.

I really feel bad about the Kurds, but this is the US and EU's fault through and through. Russia FROM DAY ONE said that the BEST way forward to defeat islamist groups and ISIS was to support the legitimate government in Syria and the Syrian Army, but nobody read between those lines. And now here we are where we are, a fucking shit show.

I agree with Svarog that this is likely a Russia-Turkey backroom agreement. The Kurds were the largest non-ISIS threat to restoring peace in Syria, and between Assad and the YPG/PKK, and what was before, it's in both Turkey and Russia's interests to keep the status quo and hammer down any loose nails.

This is obviously not in American interests but the US won't say this, because that would piss off Turkey and push them further into Russia's grasp.
