Because the fuckability rating of any woman is always relevant when you're not a cuck.

Why would he even say that? Is he trying to intentionally appeal to the slimeball bracket?

If we had any admins around I might ask for a thrad splitt for the Grenfell Tower fire, because there's going to be a lot of shit to discuss.

Cladding for Grenfell Tower was cheaper, more flammable option, supplier confirms

Quote:
Omnis Exteriors asked to supply cladding that was £2 cheaper per square metre than fire-resistant version, investigation confirms
So that's a relief: money was saved and what's more important than that?

This article connects the Qatar/Turkey rift with the Saudi block to the Syrian war and how Trump instead of getting a united Sunni front against Iran, actually weakened the anti-Iran coalitian.
US Intervention in Syria at Crossroads – Consortiumnews

Quote:
Turkey and Qatar are getting back at the U.S. by giving Assad free rein. Both Turkey and Qatar are unhappy with various aspects of U.S.-Saudi policy – with U.S. encouragement of Kurdish separatism, for instance, or with a war drive against Iran that is plainly contrary to Qatar’s economic and political interests.
Quote:
Where Trump had hoped for unity against Iran, he has wound up with the opposite. Other than Egypt and Bahrain – virtually a Saudi protectorate at this point – few other Sunni countries have signed up for the new Saudi crusade against Qatar, which has important commercial ties with Iran. Oman and Kuwait are both holding off; Morocco has offered to supply Qatar with emergency food shipments; Iraq is neutral. The U.S. and Saudi Arabia are like a pair of generals charging out onto the battlefield only to discover that the army behind them has melted away.

Intense clashes break-out between Syrian Army and US-backed forces in west Raqqa

Quote:
According to the source, units from the Syrian Arab Army attempted to cross SDF front-lines in order to rescue their fallen pilot; however, they were turned away by the latter.

This resulted in a fierce confrontation that is currently ongoing between the two entities near the key town of Resafa in western Al-Raqqa.
That was what the whole downing of that plane was about in the first place. If the Syrian army gets Resafa, they will cut US backed forces off from going further south and they will be able to go to the besieged city of Deir ez-Zor where a government garrison (and airport) and a civilian population have been surrounded by ISIS for 2 years. The US military is pissed because the Syrian army cut them off when they reached the Iraqi border just north of where their troops were blocking their path.
