Here are the reasons.   1) It might make Americans sympathetic to Philippines President Duterte. That's because Duterte = Trump > Hitler.   2) Because we have our own news story

Some guy took a selfie with the hijacker:

Take THAT  Nails Center!!!

 

 

#BLM

 

Although given the Yelp reviews of the place, one wonders if there were ulterior motives...

Very interesting sense of fashion, dressed up for a peaceful protest here:

And what flag is that?  The emblem looks like anonymous, but the brown and black part is weird.

 

The orange and black likely means that he's an anarchist of the mutualist variety.

New York Times hand-wringing over the Kurds having the gall to exercise self-determination; https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/26/opinion/kurdistans-dangerous-vote-on-independence.html

 

Might as well sneak in my daily announcement that Erdogan is a shithead and that F-16 pilot should have shot his ass down during the coup attempt.

They've been on about that for months, but nothing resembling a story has emerged.....Could it be a natural phenomena, IIRC such things have been reported elsewhere (Utrasound/Infrasound something like that)?

Supposedly there is no level of sound loud enough to cause a concussion without also blowing out the windows and/or waking the neighbours. Whatever this thing is, it's potent enough to cause deafness and mild concussions without leaving any kind of useful footprint.

 

You can bet that everywhere US diplomatic staff stays in is now bugged in some way or another to look for this thing, and that everyone has undergone screening to rule out some sort of crazily specific disease.

Self determination is the right of all peoples, except whenever it's your faithless seperatists or it threatens your national interests in some way.

 

Remember that these are all the same people who cheered for the partitian of Sudan.

Things might get very interesting quite soon, exactly how many US 'allies' will be fighting each other if this all kicks off.....I lose track?  ;)

 

PS - Then there's this:  https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/22/world/middleeast/kurds-independence-israel.html?action=click&contentCollection=Middle East&module=RelatedCoverage&region=EndOfArticle&pgtype=article

 

I hadn't realised how close the ties were.

   Tehran hosted a mourning ceremony for Mohsen Khojaji [Iranian advisor who was beheaded by ISIS about a month ago during ISIS attack on Iraqi shia unit "Seyyid ash Shuhada" of the forces of the people's militia of Iraq on the Syrian-Iraqi border].

Quote

   The remains of the deceased were finally able to be delivered to Iran and today a mourning ceremony was held at which the Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei himself was present, as well as the Chief of the Joint General Staff of the Armed Forces of Iran Major-General Bagheri and other high-ranking officials.

   Mohsen became sort of symbolic person in iran.
