http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...ald-Trump.html

This is an interesting article from Charles Moore on Trump's statement and the need to properly address extremism - its content is more suited to this thread than the US Presidential Election thread.

Rejoice as we make a meaningful difference to the ISIS threat by spending a couple of million quid making a van and a house explode!

Should just airdrop a few million DVDs. And some challenging books. And some right fire-breathing, no-nonsense hoors.

And a shitload of lubricant.

And the rail station too. Unconfirmed reports of 17 casualties and 30 injured. I dragged up these pictures from twitter:

To be fair, that looks very much like the state of the Heathrow AA check-in after the last time they cancelled one of my flights to LAX.

My wife's sister gets off the metro at Maelbeek every day. She's a translator for one of the EU departments.

Fortunately she's lazy and starts work later than most. She got to the Met station near her house to find the whole system had been shut down.

No end in sight with these fools it seems.

Where do you folks get reliable (in so far as that is possible) information about the current situation in Syria/Iraq?

The impression I get these days is that ISIS are now definitely on the back foot but it's hard to know what sources to trust these days.

Thanks both.

Somethings going off in Istanbul and Ankara:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-36809083

https://www.theguardian.com/world/li...gunfire-ankara

It's a coup attempt by parts of the armed forces according to the Guardian. Turkeys PM has said it isn't a coup attempt. So it is then. Who by though, PKK sympathisers or IS?
