I can also think of all the threats from China toward basically all their neighboors (for anti-imperialistic reasons ofc, nothing to do with getting a few more rocks in the ocean), Nk toward the US and SK, Iran toward Israel, but yeah it's absolutely totally fine.

The comments section of The Firearm Blog is reporting that the rifle is a Ukrainian Zbroyar AR-15. So... confirmed for self defense forces, then?

Best roundup of pics related, but yeah, glad to see we've gotten to the point at where the internet is picking on it instead of just walls of flame like normal ;)

At least something amusing is coming out of it.

I don't really buy into the entire idea that Putin is done with Ukraine. All he needs to do is disrupt the presidential elections, and that's blatantly easy to do. All it takes is for the pro-Russian parties to boycott the election, then Putin can claim that the new president is elected without the Russian vote, denying them their right of selfdetermination, and are in effect being repressed politically (not that a pro-Russian candidate could possibly win now, with the loss of the Crimean votes). Add in a bit of a rioting in Donetsk and he can tack on that Russia should come in and provide security. Should the Ukrainian leadership at one point or another unleash the police on the rioters then there is a claim of violence against Russians, repression and what not.

I foresee three very tense months for Ukraine. It might not happen, but the ground has been sown for it.

From BBC Live

12:57:

Dunja Mijatovic, media freedom representative at the OSCE, said she was "appalled" by the "outrageous" attack on Ukraine's state TV chief (see 12:49 post). It "goes against all media freedom values and cannot be tolerated," she said in a statement.

"This is a particularly serious incident as some attackers not only represent the legislative branch of power, but also are members of the freedom of speech and information committee of the Parliament," said Dunja Mijatovic.


And what was their problem? That TV had aired a video of where Putin signed the Crimea treaty.

Ask yourselves, where were the cops? The cops just idle around when the real authorities - fascist gangs - roam the streets, loot, vandalize and beat people up.

I'm sure it's commonplace in "the fascist english country of Canada". These are serious matters, and you are diminishing their importance with your "jokes". Fascists are in government, do you think it's fun`?

Maybe we could ask Syrians, North Koreans and Iranians if this kind of situation is fun. Don't you think ?

Fascists united.
