Said Church doesn't exist. Saw this elsewhere. In fact it wouldn't surprise me if half the things claimed about ISIS are made up.

Well, it doesn't exist now anyway... What is your source it ever existed?
Well for one the article Indy tx linked now has an update saying basically that and linking to this.

And what I mean didnt exist is that there is no church that is 1600 years old in mosul.

Voted Argentina, but seeing as the dutch are last place in this poll it will probably be them.

I really have always thought it was just an act, or have always wanted to think it was just an act.
I often think the same of you.

Ukrainian separatist rebels have pulled back to the main city of Donetsk, abandoning several strongholds in the Donetsk region to government forces.

The pro-Russian gunmen abandoned the cities of Sloviansk and Kramatorsk, as well as some smaller towns, in the north of Donetsk region.

13  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: German authorities arrest U.S. spy on: July 05, 2014, 11:55:46 am
Some more information on the alleged spy:

He's a low-level civil servant in the BND. He claims that he offered his services to the Americans on his own initiative, by writing an e-mail to the U.S. embassy in Berlin. Before he went to the Americans, he tried to offer himself to the Russians, but they must have turned him down or something. The Americans supposedly paid him "tens of thousands" of Euros for the information he provided.
Russians probably thought he was trying to spy on them.

Is this going to be a series?

In that case, I'll make a prediction. Rich white countries will get overwhelmingly FF ratings and the countries that get HP ratings will for the most part be poor and not white.

The North American part of the series (and totally not racist Sanchez's post) suggests that is already the case.
Guyana, and Suriname. are two of the least white countries in South america.

To All:

Probably "opinion of" threads about a race, or for that matter any ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or even of a class, are a bad idea. You see, except for perhaps rich white people, we start to get on very thin ground, particularly if someone has a negative opinion. We had/have a bit of a contretemps about a poster who arguably has a negative opinion of poor people. Report, after report, after report. Do you see where I am going with this?

So I respectfully request that such threads not be put up. If someone feels a compelling need, in a given context to do one that gets close to the line on this, I suggest you PM me first.

Outside of personal attacks, I normally am pretty much a laissez faire type Mod, and often let stuff go by, unless it is reported, and then I need to be fair to both the reporter and the reportee, and hew to policy. But on this one, I just see trouble down the road with this genre of "opinion of" threads, and I want to try to nip it in the bud, before someone gets hurt, and many get offended, and more feuds are fueled.

Thanks for listening.

Your most controversial Mod,

Torie
Torie hasn't been around for days, plus no one cares what he says about moderating seeing as he refuses to do so.
