  1. German Terrorism

    I thought I would start this thread following Rigsby's genuine post to move away from the Nice one. (it's not political as such.. hence me posting it here.. although mods, please feel free to move it, if the responses move that way?) Anyway it seem's to me, that the German government / security...

    Terror threats the new normal

    http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/jan/01/terror-threats-will-be-the-new-normal-for-europe-experts-say Sadly I fear this is true. However,I also fear, the admirably named Prof Rik Coolsaet, a terrorism expert at Ghent University in Belgium is right when he says:- “One day the hype...

    Russian Plane crash now suspected bomb. What next?

    Wasn't sure whether to put here or in Politics forum. I'm starting to lose faith. The war on terror is 14 years old and I would argue that terrorism on a global scale is worse now than it was in 2001 Wiki is trying to tell me otherwise but I don't feel the world to be a safer place...

    If you could turn back time

    No not a Cher appreciation thread and not actually a turn back time. If you could relive one childhood day exactly is it happened (without changing the outcome/future) what would it be and why ? I did childhood because marriage, first baby, first girl/boy bed (though that might apply to some...

    Why do we have it shoved in our face every minute of the day on all media platforms. The news etc keep on pushing it as page one news everyday, or is it just mostly propaganda to keep the masses under control. The words always used about people who do not conform are separatist, radical, A...

    Death Penalty vote back in the forefront

    According to Sky News, MPs may be about to debate the reintroduction of the death penalty: With the vast improvements in DNA and forensic findings, is it time for a more up to date viewpoint from the cross section of SZ posters at large? For myself, I believe that if the evidence is 100%...

    6th Form RE Lessons: Fundamentalism

    For my new school I've got to come up with 3 lessons to present to Year 12 (aged 16-17, all girls) on any topic I wish. Even before Fridays events I had planned to do something on Fundamentalism and Extremism as it is a topic that fascinates me... What drives people to it? It was partly inspired...

    SCHOOL -- 1970 vs. 2010 Scenario: Johnny and Mark get into a fistfight after school. 1970 - Crowd gathers. Johnny wins. Johnny and Mark shake hands and end up best mates for life. 2010 - Police called, arrests Johnny and Mark.. Charge them with assault, both expelled even though Mark...

    Another American TV thread! Did anyone see it - basically a prequel to the phenomenal Battlestar Galactica. It mirrors our lives today - terrorism, religious fanaticism, virtual reality, dodgy politics, racism. Superb, highly recommend it EVEN if you've not watched BSG.
  10. Terrorism Article

    Found this today, in my view one of the most refreshing articles on terrorism I've ever read. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/01/08/pants_bomber/
  11. Chris Morris news!!!!

    Joke (not safe for work, kids, clique or lefties)

    Following the Mumbai terrorism police are concerned that there will be a spate of copycat attacks. Specific intelligence has been received that Bradford is a target for this ethnic cleansing of Brits and Americans. Police fear that the death count could be as high as 7.

    Shadow front bencher arrested.

    Ok, I know politics is a dodgy subject at the moment, but felt this story needed reporting. Be interesting to see how it develops, in my opinion. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/politics/lawandorder/3532133/Tory-minister-Damian-Green-arrested-under-the-Official-Secrets-Acts.html...

    september 11th 2001

    would just like to say my piece: what a horrible horrible day it was.. Let's not forget the people who died.. the brave fireman, port authorities and policeman.. the bravest people ever, were the people that had the bollox to jump instead of burning alive.. many heroics were performed...

    Top 50 film endings

    Thoughts? 50. The Blair Witch Project (1999) - The movie isn't particularly scary... at least until the last two minutes, which take the tension level from 10 to 100 at an exponential pace. The final seconds -- wherein a member of the cast is spotted, back turned and facing a corner, as an...
  19. Muslim Riots Go up a Notch...

    Now embassies have started to burn across the world, and mass flag burning occuring in Muslims states... All this over a political satire cartoon. Seeing as both western and eastern nations like to shy away from Double Standards, next time Bin Laden, Abu Hamza or any other Muslim extremist...

    Surviving Terrorism

    In the event of a terrorist attack, you will need to react quickly.  Please read the following carefully. <span style='color:red'>1. IF YOU ARE EVER TRAPPED ON A PLANE WITH SOMEONE WHO APPEARS TO BE A MUSLIM AND/OR A HIJACKER:</span> Do not panic. Often young Muslim men are not terrorists...
