  1. Luckily, it looks like they found the shooter. And as far as pronouncing – you are kidding, right? It’s just like *grant*, only with Ukrainian fleur to it!

  2. Yep, they find the 17 year-old shooter and they’re now going to torture him half to death in a yet another desperate Turkish bid to appeal to the EU.

    Man, isn’t pro-Western nationalism great?
