No way to prevent this says the only country where this happens.
The Second Amendment is a plague upon this country.
Gun control now!
Ban deadly assault weapons.
No one needs an automatic assault weapon.
Etc.

Damn, son. People can see you.

I guess that's one way to get out of the Army.

And what is the difference between being conscripted and being drafted?

Mass shooting with an assault rifle in Russia?!

In America, we call it "Thursday."

Akshually. This incident proves all those points are true. Duh.

Maybe Russia will see this and back off because the place is a hot mess.

I like that you make no distinction between a country at the brink of war with Communists and an every day occurrence in the US.

You know how I can tell you are a Russian plant or didn't even read the headline?

So confused (nothing new)...

Many comments are saying Russia - we're calling Ukraine as Russia now?

And, is it cool to put out a headline that implies that war has started? Which could potentially start a war?

Check out this poem I wrote, yes I, lord Tennyson, writing as hoodiowithtudio...from the grave or something...

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
"Forward, the Light Brigade!
Charge for the guns!" he said:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

"Forward, the Light Brigade!"
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Some one had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon in front of them
Volley'd and thunder'd;
Storm'd at with shot and shell,
Boldly they rode and well,
Into the jaws of Death,
Into the mouth of Hell
Rode the six hundred.

Flash'd all their sabers bare,
Flash'd as they turn'd in air
Sab'ring the gunners there,
Charging an army, while
All the world wonder'd:
Plunged in the battery-smoke
Right thro' the line they broke;
Cossack and Russian
Reel'd from the saber-stroke
Shatter'd and sunder'd.
Then they rode back, but not
Not the six hundred.

Cannon to right of them,
Cannon to left of them,
Cannon behind them
Volleyed and thundered:
Stormed at with shot and shell,
While horse and hero fell,
They that had fought so well
Came through the jaws of death
Back from the mouth of hell,
All that was left of them-
Left of six hundred.

When can their glory fade?
Oh, the wild charge they made!
All the world wondered.
Honour the charge they made!
Honour the Light Brigade-
Noble six hundred!

So the Russians have to invade to protect the Ukrainians from Ukrainians?   Brilliant!

You get to invade and disarm the populace with reasons.

Did anyone try to read the article?  It was like Louie Louie - indecipherable at any speed.

The headline says 5 killed. The article says one. The article uses a whole bunch of abbreviations or acronyms that are unfamiliar, and appears totally in reviewed by an editor. After reading the article, I have less understanding of what happened, what is happening or what will happen.

Complete trash.

I am having flashbacks to the Lebanon war.

Hizbuallah-Syrian back army/ngo

Southern Lebanese Army-maronite-Lebanese army, backed by israel

I spent a day in 2000 in kiryat shmonei, I have no farking idea how the residents did it full time, with the constant explosions close by and constant threat of direct shelling.

/kiryat shmonei means town of eight
//refers to eight jews killed in 1920 by anti French locals at Tel Hai.

To be fair, we've all thought about it. That's why they generally keep the live ammunition away from us.

MythDragon: I guess that's one way to get out of the Army.

And what is the difference between being conscripted and being drafted?


Conscripted means once you reach a certain age as a citizen, you are required to report to be trained and serve as a soldier for at least a set amount of time (Israel has this). Drafting means there is a random lottery that decides who is required to become a soldier, like the United States used to have, because we have a much bigger population.
