    I have a feeling you want to say something. But instead you're just drive-by-shit-posting and can't even keep it as one shit-post.
    Maybe that will clear it up for you.
    Haha, 

    Ok, you're picking tweets from and following speople from Fox News, Daily Caller (Started by that Tucker guy from Fox News) and a right winged gun nut. 

    I feel so sorry for you.
    I feel sorry that your countries are being destroyed.
    You have absolutely no credibility.

    Guys, forget the rant....this is sad for all of us globally.  we all need to find a way to stop it....maybe it's not broadcasting it on the news at all, through twitter, live coverage etc.....a fellow Canadian is one of the 7 killed and people enjoying their dinner in a great neighborhood and now living a nightmare....it makes me so damn sad..Good call we should close this thread.

    Yup Foxy, with you on this sentiment, though the hopeful part of me knows there still exist places free of hate.

    Sometimes that's all needed to maintain sanity amid such fuckedupness.

    The first three. Be careful in how you speak to each other. Being rude could end badly with your posting privileges. 

    Posting Guidelines

    1. Be nice. We're very big on RESPECT here. Respect for each other, the band and the Ten Club Community forum environment. Please think of it as if you are as a guest in someone else's home. Please do not put your posting privileges at risk.

    2. Discuss, disagree and debate politely. It's possible to disagree with people without being abusive, and it's a requirement here. This includes abusive Private Messages.

    a. We operate on the "I'm rubber, you're glue" philosophy so if you make a wonderful, thoughtful post with good points and call the other guy a moron while you're at it, it'll be removed. See #3.

    3. There are people bashing and insulting each other all over the internet. We feel it can be better here.

    That's a sidestep to the discussion. So probably the worst possible answer.

    Both sides have some blame in all of this.  The West is not at fault for specific terrorist attacks but it has some fault with destabilizing the region.  Not 100% of the blame but some fault.    We won't pretend either that the Middle East was a utopia before the West came to town.  Even the stable countries have huge human rights issues.

    If it weren't for oil, most parts of the middle east would still be exotic places to visit, shop for carpets or a cool looking fez, and film cool thriller movies.  Not anymore.  Now it's a shitstorm of ruined landscape, a trashed culture (i.e. immeasurable loss of Islamic art), and angry people.

    The reports I have heard are of the bravery of the UK police and the emergency services in dealing with what was another horrific attack on our way of life.  Many lives were saved by their heroic actions.  London and the UK are grieving.  Tuesday and Wednesday night are going to be tough.  We will not let hate win.

    I watched it as well, at least the last half. Gary Barlow's face in the beginning put me off lol (Can't stand him). Most of the artists aren't my thing, but it was pretty good still. Would have been better if Noel was there as well as Liam. I used to hate Oasis because Britpop came just when grunge died and i was pissed off about it at the time. But Oasis were actually ruddy brilliant musically, even though I didn't want to admit it at the time!

    I really don't understand what happened in London Bridge last night. Some things don't add up - like why would the terrorists wear fake cannisters on their visible suicide vests (they don't normally), and why would the police shoot at them, which should have been too risky? Unless they knew they were fake in the first place? Doesn't make sense.
    Also the Barking connection was discovered pretty quickly too, even though Barking isn't that close to the city centre. Almost too quickly imo... :s

    FRom what I ve read the police thought that they would detonate their suicide vests. Turns out the vests were fake. 
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......
  • Restless SoulRestless Soul Posts: 774
    Another thing that doesn't add up is the way a lot of the recent UK attacks have all coincided with the Tories having bad press days...
    • Westminster bridge attack - happended same day that Scotland was due to vote for second independence referendum
    • Westminster knife man arrest - happened same day after Boris called Corbyn a "mugwump" and made the Tories a laughing stock
    • Manchester bombing - happened same day (night) after Theresa May got a mauling in the press for her dementia tax and uturn
    • London Bridge/Borough market attack - happened same day several polls revealed that labour were closing the gap or even beating the tories in the run-up to the election.
    They might not seem a big issues to worry about ordinarily, but with an election coming up it seems that the tories can't afford any more bad press days. It all just makes me wonder...
