Things are starting to look grim as hell in Bangladesh. Reports of a massive crackdown, with government agents using swords and axes on protesters. The internet is being shut down as well, phones and cameras being confiscated.

Yeah, those places need aid desperately.The former Indian Islands have a troubled history

Sri Lanka had something similar happen not a few years ago. I remember popping on the cricket only to hear the match was cancelled due to the Sri Lankan cricket team getting gunned down on their way.

Even his god-awful pathetic excuse for facial hair? Is it so bad that Gulen has stolen all forms of shaving equipment in the entire country so not even it's president can use them?

I guess the good news is atleast that Erdogan has seized control over the Lira and is doing exactly nothing to prevent it from nosediving back to like 2005 levels of inflation, because interest rates are Gulen conspiracies...
