    So have the terrorist attacks. Melbourne, car ran over pedestrians.

    ETA: Maybe not.

    "A man deliberately drove into pedestrians, killing four and injuring more than 20, in the center of Australia's second largest city of Melbourne on Friday, but police said the incident was not terrorism-related."

    It usually take s few hours to confirm that it was a terrorist attack. Unfortunately the religion of peace always seems to "come through" in situations like this.

    Is Aljezera the only news outlet covering it? I don't like going to that sight.

    Yeah same anarchists that show up at every G20 event, just so that they can break a few windows and get the media distracted from more valid protest.

    I don't know why people are in the middle of the street throwing rocks at police. It's rather stupid and pointless. And only makes those of us against Trump look bad. Idiots.

    A Bank of America and a Starbucks? Where will the local snowflakes go for their mocha lattes and their loan rejections.

    The logic is flawless as usual

    "We are anti-faschists so we throw rocks at the police, then when they defend themselves we shout *who are you defending??* then we throw some more rocks"

    I am curious as to how the everyday life looks like for these people, like, if you go out with balaclavas, destroying local businesses, throwing rocks at the police etc etc, what is that, seriously, what way of living is that?

    Aparently he was fleeing the police after a stabbing so probably not terrorism.
    As ever no real need to rush to judgement one way or the other.

    Good point. Since the right-winged snowflakes were already boycotting Starbucks because of their Christmas cups. Poor Starbucks!

    Oh man. This ALJEZERA news feed is gross. They're just attacking Trump. Get off the air you brittish posers.

    I used to like Starbucks but it's way over priced. And I refuse to say Venti.

    I encouraged the boycott. Fewer people in line when I go get my coffee.
