    Wtf.....
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    One of the gunmen is claiming to have "devices" all over the city (almost certainly bull****) and is demanding to talk to Tony Abbott on live radio. Christ.

    He wants to talk to Abbott? Dude, you don't need to confirm how mad you are?

    Anyway, safely out of town, thank goodness. Our building is about three doors down.

    Obviously I have as little information as anyone on here, but I can't imagine it's actually ISIS itself doing or planning this.

    Almost certainly not, more likely just some lunatics who've spent too much time wallowing in Jihadist media.

    Which makes the rolling coverage all the more pointless IMO; they're likely a couple of fruit loops -- don't give them the attention they so desperately crave. All this does is lend them credibility when they have none.

    Especially when there's basically no info so every news network is rushing around to find a regular customer to get a tear-y interview from.

    It's not ISIS, That's the Al Qaeda flag, looks liek Jabhat Al-Nusra (has ties with ISIS, they're rivals but may/may not have reconciled in Syria after the airstrikes).

    I'm Indian and this reminded me of the Mumbai terror attacks. Really hope everyone turns out okay,

    Today is another one of those days where I get to delete 25 ignorant ****heads from my facebook friends list.

    Gotta find the positives in this, I guess.

    News Talk 2UE 954 ‏@NewsTalk2UE 6m6 minutes ago
    Breaking: 2UE has also had contact from two hostages. Same msg as other outlets are getting. Gunman wants ISIL flag and to talk to PM

    truly some disgusting behaviour
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
