    WATCH: Bloemfontein man wearing swastika armband in a Wimpy goes viral

    Not surprised at all. But agreed. It was easier to generate clicks for IOL etc through the way the article was done. A simple search for the event would have found it and a query to the organiser for clarification could have gone a long way to dispelling the matter.

    WATCH: Bloemfontein man wearing swastika armband in a Wimpy goes viral

    What I was saying is that old Oom does not see the context. For him, he has probably eaten breakfast there, ahead of this event for the past 10 years with no issue. He most definitely does not go on twitter etc and see the daily fued between left and right and all the associated culture war BS...

    WATCH: Bloemfontein man wearing swastika armband in a Wimpy goes viral

    Well to be fair, I did more research and provided more context on the matter than either the IOL or Timeslive did on this. They got the battle wrong for one. A search of local community events was easy enough to provide a clear picture on the matter.

    WATCH: Bloemfontein man wearing swastika armband in a Wimpy goes viral

    Interesting, never knew there was a WW2 re-enactment following in SA. I wonder what these guys did in relation to the re-enactment of Operation Barbarossa? The beginning of the end for the Nazis. The numbers on this one are scary. German casualties were around a million. Soviet casualties...

    Iran says Revolutionary Guard shoots down US drone

    Oh yeah celebrating that no attack took place and no one died, the horror. Last time the US and Iran skirmished, the US shot down a commercial airliner. Lets hope no one goes down this road again.

    Iran says Revolutionary Guard shoots down US drone

    Trump is playing a game. He is showing Iran that he is willing to attack, but decided, he still valued a peaceful solution, given the over riding value of human life. So he will now say he took the high road, ball is in their court. Stupid political ploy, its an age old North Korean tactic...

    Iran says Revolutionary Guard shoots down US drone

    In 1969 North Korea shot down a US intelligence aircraft flying over international airspace, near North Korea. 31 US aircrew died. Apart from a naval show of force, Nixon did ... nothing. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1969_EC-121_shootdown_incident

    Iran says Revolutionary Guard shoots down US drone

    This plane flies over the US, as part of a treaty. The US allows the plane to fly over. Russia also allows a plane from the US to fly over its territory. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_on_Open_Skies

    Iran says Revolutionary Guard shoots down US drone

    Trump pulled back forces on route to attack Iran. He rescinded his earlier decision to attack. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/20/world/middleeast/iran-us-drone.html#click=https://t.co/rXVmi2rv4i Good call, keep it that way.

    Donald J. Trump: President of the USA Part III Covfefe

    Some historical anecdote relevant to the war fought here. Nazi Germany had two types of camps. Concentration camps where people (the undesirables - Jews, Roma, Sinti, Poles, Soviets, gays and the infirm) were segregated from society and sent. They died mostly from diseases, due to the...
