    Sri Lanka Attacks

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-48001720

    What is wrong with people? How damaged do you have to be to do something like this? Picking the weekend when Churches are likely to be their busiest and when most children are likely to be present seems particularly evil.

    Utterly despicable. Why do some humans think this kind of cowardly attack can be justified?

    Wicked, wicked ********s. We had a really close friend, especially close for my missus, who mercifully flew out this morning and thus - figuratively and perhaps literally - dodged that bullet.

    i was just reading about this guy last week as he's bought a lot of land in Scotland


    Three of the four children of Danish billionaire Anders Holch Povlsen died in the Sri Lanka bombing attacks, a spokesman has confirmed to the BBC.


    truly heartbreaking



    death toll just under 300, murdered

    Seems to have been militant Islamists responsible, perhaps some sort of sick revenge for the Christchurch mosque attacks.

    The narrative is tit for tat.

    How about we stop killing people just going about their business hurting nobody?

    Is that too hard?

    And the difference it will make in advancing the 'cause' these latest nutters are attached to .. none, absolutely none, zero, sod all, just the same as the Christchurch nutter has made no difference to literally anything apart from New Zealand gun control.

    This will happen again and again and again and the nutters will never learn

    I visited Sri Lanka a few years ago after the civil war, and it was all a bit ****ed with Buddhist extremists attacking Muslim villages. We've now got Muslim extremists attacking Christians and it is all utterly depressing. It's a beautiful country that deserves better.

    Today's events are as chilling as last weekends

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-48074702

    Really troubling are the reports of drones being found...

    I just watched the report on the BBC news about Sri Lanka. Some of the images of babies and children burned and injured in the attack were just horrific. Babies ffs.

    A shooting at a Synagogue in the US today as well. Barbaric and senseless.
