I'm still not clear. Do you expect him to cover all aspects of right wing extremism in one article, even when it's not specifically related to ISIS, which is what is specifically being discussed? I...

Sorry, I wasn't implying you were interested because of morbid curiosity.

And I don't really fear being in an MH17 or Metrojet 9268 at all. The chance of that is so remote I'm not at all fussed, and...

Not a fan of Erdogan's government, but the Turks hate the Russians and feel wedged by Syria. I think you'll find this was a popular act. I wouldn't be surprised if this was aimed at NATO as much as...

If you ask me the site just looks like someone's blog now. Did they win an award for that completely derivative design? Fascinating.

Also my blocker completely breaks the new menu system.

Not enough annotated how-it-happened pictures or live crosses to pique my interest. And besides Mali-flagging Facebook profile pics will make everyone look like Rastafarians, and we can't have that.
