Fk! If this is true it's going to explode the situation in Ukraine

I'm not realy sure ,so hard to see by the photos but I do think the fatherland political party organised a sniper and were caught red handed bringing in a sniper rifle with silencer in the boot of the car

I always assumed one of the men in the car was the sniper,will have another look at the vid as see if he gets in the car

Poor bugger, the treatment he's going to get is going to be brutal.
So terrorists in Eastern Ukraine.. this would by the pro-Russians right?
A Swedish merc sounds suspiciously like a NATO commando!

He fought for Irak's democracy:

Your OP is full of contradictions : a freedom fighter sniper? Please do explain the freedom part. Irak's democracy? you mean target practice.

The guy is a merc, if you get caught you pay. That's the rules you get. He most certainly wasn't doing this for democracy.

All for the moneyz. People like him is why things escalated so fast the way they did.

And if there is one then there are others . I would imagine that he is going to suffer a great deal before he spills the beans .Oh and the US set the president for torturing terrorist and getting away with it .I am thinking he would probably welcome being mauled by a bear then a day with the KGB ..

You have walked past your beheaded neighbors to vote, yes?
You have marked yourself in some irremovable way to prove to the world (and your enemies) that you voted, yes?
You have braved suicide bombs, roadside bombs, and armed mobs just to get to a polling site, yes?

The people of Iraq were given a right to vote. Many of them (my personal friends) faced more hardship in a day than many here will in their lifetimes, all for that little bit of democracy. The very idea that they would have a say in their lives and their children's lives.

Make your comments, as is you right. You have never sweat for your rights. You have never bled for your rights. You have never sacrificed for your rights.

But, be honest with yourself: if you knew you and your family would be killed today or tomorrow, would you still walk 10 miles in 120F and wait in line for 8-12 hours to cast your ballot?


++Other than that bit I agree with what you said 100%++

All trace of this story will disappear if it turns out he was working for Moscow.

I won't be arguing what you just said, you are correct, I don't face such atrocities.
That said, claiming that we brought democracy to Irak is a lie.

We armed the government, we armed the rebellions. And in the mean time the soldiers get killed because their own boss is funding their own terrorist.

But again I agree, no one should have to fear for their lives just to bring out a vote.

Thanks for the input, it is getting more interesting. He is at home now:



Observers held in Ukraine speak under armed guard



John Christensen, right, a senior Sgt. in the Danish army and his colleague, both members of a group of foreign military observers are escorted by a pro-Russian militant to attend a press conference in the city hall of Slovyansk, eastern Ukraine, Sunday, April 27, 2014. As Western governments vowed to impose more sanctions against Russia and its supporters in eastern Ukraine, a group of foreign military observers remained in captivity Saturday accused of being NATO spies by a pro-Russian insurgency.


After being caught he transformed to OSCE observer?

Once again, Moscow cannot keep its story straight.

I read your outrage and can understand it however, you need to understand that the people in the West not only have fought for a long time for our rights, with women chaining themelves to railings in order to get the vote etc, as just one simple example.

I could list and list fights over freedom in Western Countries like the UK, you clearly don't know about our civil wars, but I think you need to find out about Western country's histories before you get outraged, because we fought years ago for the rights you so obviously are now enjoying in Detroit - if that is where you live. We also fought two world wars and, were it necessary would fight again for our freedoms.

Ironically to be honest, its since the 9/11 acts against the West that now our freedoms we had fought hard to obtain seem to be under threat due to security issues. I trust I have made my point politely.

Perhaps my point was not clear as well.

I can claim the people of Iraq as my friends because I laughed with them, talked with them about life and hopes, worked with them, ate with them, bled with them, and shared their losses.

I am well versed in "Western history". I grew up in Detroit. I served 20 years in the US Army (42 months of combat, 48 months of non-combat deployments). I am now retired and back in Detroit.

As far as America's Civil War, I think you may want to dig a little deeper into that one. Freedoms were not a part of that war until it became convenient to the North. If not, why was it legal to own a man in more Union States than Confederate? Why did the Emancipation Proclamation only free southern slaves?

I apologized in PM for my rant as I didn't want to hijack the thread. Just thought I would clear up any misunderstandings here.

Hope that response was polite as well. Opinions and debate and ideas should be shared without it becoming a personal attack. I forget that sometimes, hence my PM of apology.
