Quote from: Josephus on Today at 03:08:16 PMI don't think anybody is condemning him. [We don't know his role in the war so presumption of innocence applies. Just that, as others have said, honoring him with a standing O at Parliament was extremely poor judgment. Not only because of the Waffen SS but also because he's got nothing to do with the current war that's going on. He didn't fight against Putin's Russia but against a different enemy all together.
There are plenty of Canadians who were victimized by Nazi Germany and this is obviously an insult to them.
It was silly, and stupid, and I'm glad the speaker is resigning over this.

Quote from: HVC on Today at 11:59:20 AMApparently Portugals larger towns and cities have gotten much more expensive. Still cheap by foreign standards but when min wage in 10k euros a year people are starting to grumble. Probably just "normal" inflation, but a lot of people are blaming in the influx of expats on golden visas and digital nomads.

Quote from: Razgovory on September 25, 2023, 06:58:04 PMThe Turks are happy. They are pleased to see what absolutely didn't happen in 1915 not happing again NK.The other weird thing I learned about Turco-Armenian relations recently was that not only do the Turks continue to deny the genocide, but they also violently despise Armenians in general. I guess maybe that shouldn't be surprising but somehow it surprised me? Like I was reading about a Turkish dude who found out he was actually an Armenian by ethnicity--apparently Turkey contains a lot of 'crypto-Armenians'--and when he decided to write a book about it, his other fake-Turk Armenian relatives threatened to kill him if he went ahead and published it, so great their shame would be for being exposed as Armenians.
