    Germany Thread

    'I met my IS captor on a German street' A Yazidi teenager sold into slavery by Islamic State has told the BBC of her horror after she escaped to Germany, only to come face-to-face with her captor in the street. Ashwaq was only 14 when Islamic State fighters stormed into northern Iraq, including the heartland of the Yazidi people. They took thousands of women as sex slaves, including Ashwaq - sold for $100 to a man named Abu Humam. Raped and beaten, she managed to escape three months later and then went to Germany with her mother and one brother. A few months ago, on the street outside a supermarket, she heard someone call out her name. Ashwaq told the BBC: "On the way back to school a car pulled up next to me. He was sitting in the front seat. He talked to me in German and asked: 'Are you Ashwaq?' I was so scared I was shaking. I said: 'No, who are you?'" She said he then replied: "I know you are Ashwaq, and I am Abu Humam." ... https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-45209868

    I think Cav is on the other side of the world (or inside it or something), so you'll have to wait for a cunning response.

    Last Monday I found that my link wouldn't connect, and for days I thought the board was down. I finally I tried googling, and it came right up. It opens for me with thai360.com - but not with the longer link I'd always used to the new contents page.

    Coss, have we lost the personal message function? I can't find it anywhere on this "new improved" board. Even my old link to the board won't connect, and I have to google for it. I notice there are very few new posts. Coincidence? Meanwhile, since there's no Manchester thread ... pretend she's a Yank. ‘Worst airline passenger ever' Mum, 51, jailed for punching flight attendant in crotch https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/996812/Manchester-news-drunk-mum-air-rage-TUI-flight-Helen-Butcher

    "I don't care what anyone says, in mainstream Kiwi society you have to be very careful what you say these days. That's one reason I tend not to venture in to mainstream society because I know my views (which are NOT extreme in any way) would not be appreciated. The Kiwi public have been brainwashed." Apparently, one of the reasons almost every poll on the US 2016 election was wrong is because many voters supposedly were reluctant to admit they planned to vote for Trump, since the knew they'd immediately catch hell from the "Hillary is god" crowd. It's a sad state when people have to conceal their opinions in what are supposedly functioning democracies. I think Trump is a buffoon, but I'd still take him any day over a continuation of the Clinton dynasty. Hillary and the Democratic party got Trump elected by the way they shafted Bernie Sanders, who had an increasingly strong following but stood no chance with the party poobahs who had already decided Hillary would be the nominee, and the voters be damned. Donna Brazile blew the whistle on how corrupt the Democratic Party leadership had been, but no one seems to be very upset over there. If the Republican Party had acted the same way, their would have been banner headlines about it for weeks.

  11. That's one. Wish they had page 3 girls though. (.)(.) All of the world's major papers are on line now. Many papers have even stopped their print editions! I used to make extra money freelancing for magazines and newspapers. That's just about come to an end these days, and most either use their staff writers or get the news from wire services. Several of the magazines I used to contribute to have actually gone out of business. I'm owed money from them, which I'll never see.

    Yeah, but no salary comes with the job.
