The General News Thread


#2002

I don’t find that description that bad. It’s one of the things about psychopaths that is so fascinating. The way they can portray normality and fool people.

But I don’t think that was what the Daily Mail were thinking when they wrote it :slight_smile:

“milky complexion”

Fucking hell, the racial undertones couldn’t be clearer :joy: :joy: :joy:


#2005

India attacks terrorist site in Pakistan, Pakistan responds…


#2006

Good to see Pakistan has ammunition.
Some day they will use it against Terrorists, rather than just on armed forces.


#2007

Haven’t India and Pakistan both got nukes pointed at each other?


#2008

Biggest joke ever. Partition and conflict primarly based on the most trivial subject in human history; religion.


#2009

Why would they? They are on the same side lol :wink:.


#2010

Pretty much done with having normal life disrupted over trivial nuisances and subsequent escalations.
Terror attacks won’t stop and retaliations won’t stop.

We really need to improve socio-economic conditions in Middle east, else the circle will never break.

On a side note, is anyone tracking news from Venezuela?


#2011

A tad simplistic. There are many reasons for this current skirmish. Not least because certain leaders are conscious of elections to win.


#2012

At the end of the day it’s religion based violence.


#2013

Not really


#2014

Always tense between India nd Pakistan.


#2015

Those reasons would mean a lot less if there wasn’t a fundamental Islamic vs Hindu/Sikh divide.


#2016

Think Islamic Vs Hindu Vs Sikh divide is more accurate.

Religion is a major factor, but there are also other major factors involved too. Nationalism, territorial disputes etc etc.

Otherwise, Muslim Indians would be on Pakistan’s side instead of with India. This is what I mean by simplistic analysis.


#2017

And where does that nationalism and the territorial disputes originate from? Jinnah and the Muslim League wanting an Islamic country…

Are they 100% with India?


#2018

Yes. Many of the Indian media personalities, celebrities etc cheering this action are Muslim. Muslim Indians are pretty patriotic and can just as easily be anti Pakistan as Hindus.

Look if you can’t recognise there may be other things at play there isn’t any point in discussing it further.

Anyways.


#2019

Lol. That’s why sometimes religious riots concur indeed.

Ah. Ninja edit.


#2020

Yeah sorry wanted to add a bit more


#2021

You dispute that the whole 1947 partition, and what the struggles today are a consequence of, doesn’t have religious origins? F.e. the whole Kashmir conflict started in 1947 if I’m not mistaken.
