Oh well, now that you mention it... I'm having a hard time to believe that proven Iranian activities were fully supported by the government. Teheran is a Shiite regime whereas the Taliban are Sunni. The Taliban kill Shiites. 15 years ago Iran almost went to war with the Taliban.

A US soldier in Afghanistan has shot dead 15 civilians and wounded others after entering their homes in Kandahar province, Afghan and Nato sources say.
Almost - I say almost - understandable, seeing the past few weeks with many Americans killed by the hands of mindless outrage1!!11-drones. But this will gonna be a nightmare for the lot of us, with unpredictable repercussions inbound as we speak.
I sure hope the Americans at least punish this gunman in accordance to his guilt. A second Haditha-trial, with no real sentence whatsoever given, would be the coffin nail of this mission.

On the other hand, most of the explosives caches and heavier weapons found by the Dutch army in southern Afghanistan were produced in Iran. I doubt the Iranians have that little control over who their arms manufacturers sell to.

First reports mention two different versions of the event, a soldier had a mental breakdown (initial and official account), and that of a group of drunken soldiers (by supposed male eyewitnesses that lost their entire family, but then why are they not dead as well? So they might just as well be Taliban posing as victims, a trick they used before). If it's a matter of temporary insanity, you know just as well as I do that the sentence will be lenient. Regardless of the sentence, the Afghan method of justice is an eye for an eye, so 15 female and adolescent members of the soldier(s) family have to be stoned. Since that's not going to happen, they'll settle for all foreign troops in the country.

Welp, our government is planning on selling student loans. That is, they're planning on selling student loans people have already taken.

That is, the government are going to sell the fact that people are going to give them 40 billion pounds for 900 million pounds.

That is to say, the British government are literally planning on throwing away £39 billion and acting like this is somehow good for economy.

Did I mention I'd started supporting Plaid Cymru recently?

Yeah. Get as many countries that border Russia or are near Russia into NATO just to piss them off. Sweden, Finland, Ukraine, Georgia.

Putin's becoming delusional. His press conference yesterday shows he's beginning to believe into his own propaganda.

A loss of 15% of your electorate in the last (regional) elections will do that to you.

I'm less optimistic in that respect. I don't think it's a scheme to attract voters but that he really believes in what he's saying. He's former KGB and he called the downfall of the Soviet Union "the worst tragedy of the 20th Century", I guess you can't take autocracy outta someone like that.

It can't be called trolling if it's being done in a thread no one has looked at in years.
