1  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: The Great Thailand Thread on: August 29, 2015, 03:01:38 pm
A Turkish national was arrested by police yesterday in connection to the bombing, was found with 10 fake passports and bomb making material. Not suspected to be the actual bomber, though.

Turkish involvement would suggest a connection to the deportation of Uyghur refugees to China two months ago. If you recall there were riots in Turkey over that incident, and the Thai embassy was attacked. It would also provide an answer to the question of who in Thailand would bomb a Buddhist shrine (answer: someone who was neither Thai nor Buddhist).
The turkish passport found is a very fake one, so its not clear what nationality he is.

This is preposterous. It would be akin to accusing the Moderate Party of being "power mad" for refusing to go into coalition with the Sweden Democrats. I'm not sure what exactly it is about Turkey that causes such mass hysteria.
... wow ... are you for real? You do know that the MHP is surely a hell of a lot more fascist than SD? And you do know that unlike Moderaterna, the AKP doesn't exactly have a stellar record on preserving fundamental rights, such as the freedom of press? Once Moderaterna get back into power and they block Twitter, turn the whole judicial apparatus to their side, intimidate journalists, and oppress some minorities, then you could get back to me with this crazy comparison.
Its not like CHP has a good record on such fundamental rights either.

Poor Jim Gilmore. Also I presume this is open for the entirety? I wonder how long before some candidate discovers it and rigs it.

I'd like to add that this "conspiracy" was after Tweed asked Griffin to host the mod cave files and Griffin said no.

And guess who got axed for saying no?

Umm. He advised how to do it. His conversation with Tweed is captured on AAD.
Advising how to set something up is not against the TOS.

I think, and you can understand this, that the admins of this forum have a right to ban someone who assisted in people gaining access to personal info. What action would you recommend?
Complete technical information so no ban. IThe actual perpetrators have already been banned its pointless vengeance on your parts.

New Democracy - which was completely humiliated after the failure of the Nai campaign, which they threw a lot of their resources, infrastructure and general machinery at - may have a female leader of its own. Dora Bakoyanni, a member of the liberal wing (you might remember her leading one of the million tiny liberal parties that splintered off ND at the start of the crisis) apparently wants the job - she was the runner-up when Samaras (a more traditional rightist) was chosen.
Notably the daughter of Konstantinos Mitsotakis prime minister in the early 90s, who was toppled by non other than Samaras! who formed his own party and withdrew support over Mitsotakis not taking a hardline on the whole Macedonia thing

Of course it was Lenin who signed humiliating peace terms with the Germans. Kerensky is the guy who tried to continue fighting a losing war.

Kerensky was a guy who did not believe he had the right to make major decisions, as he was an unelected caretaker (he was only in - very limited - power for a few months anyway - the original Provisional PM was Prince Lvov). Elections to the Constituent Convention were held, as planned, shortly after the Bolshevik coup. And the Bolsheviks lost miserably (got about a quarter of the seats) - upon which loss they send in the guards to kick out the duly elected representatives of the people.

BTW, not that I care much about it, but the war was hardly losing - within a year the Germans collapsed themselves, and Russia would have been on the winning side.
Well I am more trying to make the point that SWEs analogy doesn't really fit or perhaps that his ideal revolutionary will sign a even more terrible deal in exchange for consolidating power.
As for the war that's true, but the russian army was in terrible shape to hold out another year.

Horrible flag since it basically represents Russian imperialism.

The people of a region deciding (in an overwhelming majority vote, mind you) to leave Ukraine and join Russia is Russian imperialism? It must be some powerful force, to be able to garner 80+% of the vote in the regions that voted to leave Ukraine!
Even ignoring the legitimacy of said polls, You realize Novorossiya is a supposed idea that covers all of south east ukraine? Are you going to claim all of those areas support being invaded by the Novorossiyan forces?

I'm one that likes to wait until the bugs are largely worked out before I buy an operating system.  Plus, I just bought a Windows 8 laptop right after Christmas so I don't need any new devices for quite a while.  I voted yes in the poll because I will be buying it eventually either out of will or out of no other option.
You don't need to buy it if you own Windows 8.

I'm worried that the power-hungry Islamo-fascist pseudo-dictator Erdogan is going to manipulate the results, so that his AKP remains in charge ...

Please keep the excessive hyperbole under control. This board isn't for this kind of nonsense.

I'm sorry to read that you don't like the truth ...

Besides, this is a free board. I can write whatever I want. Thx.
No its not. but the evidence shows you were wrong in anycase.

The evidence shows nothing like that: who knows if the AKP didn't get 35% in reality and all the ballot stuffing, intimidation and other irregularities pushed them up to the current 43% ?
Its somewhat possible, but there is no proof. but since im sure you also like HDP its likely they engaged in much the same in kurdish areas
