  1. Kinda random but the woman who lips "Don't walk away from me" at 00:37 is soooooo gorgeous.
  2. Imma grab my popcorn while Trump fails in international politics
  3. Air Strikes Started Jan.20 Manbij is in an area where a 30,000-strong US-trained border force from the Syrian Democratic Forces, dominated by YPG fighters, is to be trained.The announcement of a border force infuriated Turkey's leaders, and Erdogan has accused the United States, its most powerful NATO ally, of "building an army of terror" on his border and threatened to "drown" the US-backed force. Turkey regards the YPG as the Syrian arm of the Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK. The PKK is an outlawed Kurdish group responsible for major terror attacks in Turkey as part of its bid for national ethnic autonomy. The European Union and United States have both named the PKK as a terrorist outfit. Turkish-backed fighters from the Free Syrian Army were battling Kurdish militia members recently in Afrin, and a full cross-border Turkish military incursion had been expected. Turkish vehicles, including artillery, tanks, rocket launchers and heavy equipment transporters, had been observed on the Turkish-Syrian border, a US defense official said Friday. The operation has been launched as of Jan. 20, 5:00 p.m. to neutralize terrorist groups and liberate friendly and brotherly people of the region from oppression and tyranny, it added, noting that the operation aims to provide security and stability along Turkey's borders and in the region. The operation complies with international law, U.N. Security Council resolutions, especially No. 1624 (2005), 2170 (2014) and 2178 (2014); and Article 51 of the U.N. Charter on Right of Self Defense, the statement said. It underlined that during the operation's planning and conduct, only terrorists and their shelters, weapons, vehicles and tools are being targeted and utmost care is being shown for civilians not to be harmed. While ground troops located in Kilis province near the Syrian border aim at PKK/PYD targets with howitzers, tank units, multiple rocket launchers, Turkish warplanes target previously identified terrorists in an air operation, media sources reported. Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu says Turkey has notified all actors involved - including the Syrian government - about the offensive. Russia - a key military figure in the region - says it is concerned by the development, and has relocated its troops from the region. Officials earlier said Moscow would not interfere in the conflict. The mission chiefs employed by U.S., Iranian and Russian embassies were also invited to the Foreign Ministry in Ankara to be given a briefing on the latest developments in Afrin, in addition to the ambassadors of United Kingdom, France and China. PS: Turkish Operations in Syria originally started in August 2016: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_military_intervention_in_Syria_(August_2016–March_2017) http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/20/middleeast/turkey-syria-military-operation/index.html https://www.dailysabah.com/war-on-terror/2018/01/20/operation-olive-branch-launched-in-syrias-afrin-to-clear-pkk-daesh-turkish-military-says http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-42759944 [UPDATE] Ground Incursion Started 08:05 GMT In a press conference in Istanbul on Sunday, Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Turkish forces crossed into the YPG-controlled region in Syria at 08:05 GMT from the Turkish village of Gulbaba. He said Turkey plans to establish a 30km "safe zone" in Afrin. Confirming the Afrin operation, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday he hopes it will be completed "in a very short time". America has been arming the YPG as part of the operation to clear Syria of Islamic State militants or Daesh. It's been a festering source of annoyance for the Turks who view the YPG and PKK to be different branches of the same organisation with similar objectives that is creating an independent Kurdistan across Turkey, Syria and Iraq. Then when the Americans recently announced plans to create a 30,000-strong border security force mainly made up of Kurdish fighters, Turkey ramped up the rhetoric and has now matched it with on-the-ground action. A few days ago, the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he hoped the Americans would not side with the Kurds during the Afrin operation and that 'despite it all', he hoped to continue working with the US. He added he hoped America would rather support Turkey in what he described as its legitimate attempts to combat terror. https://news.sky.com/story/turkish-troops-move-into-kurdish-controlled-area-of-afrin-in-northern-syria-11217110
  4. Medium Rare. Although that med-rare in the OP is a poor representation as a thin section of the inside seems raw. It should be pink not glistening red. Well done is too chewy for me but some people buy poor cuts to cook as a steak which makes it impossible to make perfect medium rare, those type of cuts should be stewed, slow cooked, or marinated and grilled. PS: Perfect Medium Rare:
  5. I don't really have a dream other than having a big family tbh. In my case, I would have to find a dream job and work towards it if my actual dream fails
  6. I don't have any negative feelings towards Sam but god, is he ugly ! Although I am obviously jealous of his success for obvious reasons like he has so many grammies while I cannot even sing Itsy Bitsy Spider on key. Not being humble though, I think I am pretty cute, I would make a much better celebrity than Sam with my relationship a la Madonna - Sean Penn . Troye is much less famous but much more cuter than Sam. Although, he's dating another pretty twink like himself. Someone should tell them that two bottoms don't make a top. Troye def needs to date a man like Adam Levine and form an ultimate gay power couple.
  7. No. Even my computer doesn't have a CD player, my phone just connect wireless to the car if I am driving. I literally don't have a handy medium I can play a physical album on. To be honest, I actually never bought a physical album. I had an iPod when I started primary school and my parents' cars had aux cables even back then.
  8. Usually 2, one in the morning, one after doing cardio. But it might decrease to 1 if I skip the gym or increase to 3 if I don't feel like I trust my morning shower for a certain activity
  9. Is this the most memorable classical music piece produced in the modern era ? Conquest of Paradise by Vangelis, guaranteed goosebumps:
  10. Lmao, there are Muslim pop girls who are not American. They rely on those kind of lyrics as much as their Christian American counterparts. It's funny how most Americans think respecting a regressive non-secular religious garb and its socially restricting notions is equivalent of respecting a whole culture. Examples ? Era Istrefi - Kosovar - Albanian (481 M views on this song) Aleyna Tilki - Turkish (346 M views on this song)
  11. Yes, he's a legend because he nominated me to be the hottest bottom of COP
  12. He explicitly said that it happened 5 mins after she declared that she was quitting twitter. How is it not embarrassing ? WTF ?!?! What world is that you live in ?
  13. I used to be Gaga stan, it is sad to see how she keeps lowering herself. Bitch, you were supposed to be next Queen of Pop, not the next radio charter. Regardless whether they succeed in this endeavour or not, Gaga was supposed to be a tastemaker, not one trying to achieve radio hits. How the tides have turned...
  14. I think there are 2 reasons. 1- One is that Warner Bros keep moving her videos to the extent most old songs have more views under their unofficial uploads. 2- Madonna is more famous than her songs. Like Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston are famous for few of their iconic videos, I am sure there are many more people who know those songs than Carey or Houston. It's the exact opposite for Madonna. Everybody knows who Madonna is even if they do not know a single song of her.
