Over 100 dead, all sides of the investigation agree that it has likely came from improper maintenance.

A bunch of animals have escaped from a zoo in germany following a heavy thunderstorm. A bear has already been shot dead but two lions, two tigers and a jaguar are still on the loose...

I swear to god Juncker is a two-faced tool. Europe is seeing a rise in nationalist groups and all he does his push them further toward the Russia camp. Meanwhile Russia is off expanding its influence and Europe should just kick back. This is how WW2 started, timid nations who dont want to deal with a bully, while sacrificing smaller countries to appease it. Meanwhile Trump has probably done more spite Putin despite being a far right tool himself such as striking Assad several times with airstrikes.

Eh. Yes and no, a lot of "populist" parties are pro-Putin, they have a lot in common, authoritatianism, hating the gays™ and the muslims™, but eastern Europe is generally scared quite shitless of Russia. Poland and the Baltic at least, Fidesz only advocates economic co-operation with Russia, mainly in the energy sector. The actual "Putin does nothing wrong, hes a good boy" is more a western european populist thing.
But yes Juncker is a dipshit, there is no two ways about it.

Are you unironically advocating war with Russia? Because thats what that WW2 analogy implies. And if anyone even wins that conflict, it sure as shit isnt going to be us

The Austrian Chancellor called for a "Berlin-Vienna-Rome Axis" against illegal immigration...
Poor choice of words to say the least.

Japan is pretty strict on immigration, a very poor choice of words in deed. Someone should squash that thing it before it history repeats itself again.
