Possible serial bomber?

Austin package explosion leaves teen dead, woman hurt after second blast in 2 weeks

Quote:
A teenager was killed and a woman was seriously hurt after a package exploded at an Austin home early Monday in a blast similar to another deadly incident nearly two weeks ago in Texas' capital city, officials said.

Austin Police said they received a call about the explosion in a neighborhood on the northwest side of the city around 6:45 a.m., after the 17-year-old resident found a package on the front step, brought it inside, and opened it in the kitchen where it exploded.

"It is very similar to the incident that occured in Austin on March 2," Austin Police Chief Brian Manley told reporters.

Manley said authorities don't believe the package came from a delivery through the U.S. Postal Service, and that it was placed on the home's front doorstep in a manner similar to the blast earlier this month.

"There are similarities we believe these cases are linked at this time," Manley said.

Sad this sh*t isn't in the news more. Genocide.

Half million now dead in Syrian civil war; 85 percent civilians killed by government

About 511,000 people have been killed in the Syrian civil war, and 85 percent were civilians who died at the hands of the Syrian regime and its allies, including Russia, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, who provided their report to Reuters, “more than 350,000 of those killed” have been identified, “and the remainder were cases where it knew deaths had occurred but did not know the victims’ names.”

The United Nations reports that in addition to the half a million who have died, more than 5.4 million people have fled Syria since the war began. An additional 6.5 million Syrian refugees moved to different areas of Syria instead of fleeing it, according to a U.N. report from July of 2016. This latest report states that “more than half the pre-war population” has been forced to flee their homes.

The entire population of Syria was just over 18 million in July 2017, according to the CIA World Factbook.

Here’s what you need to know about the Syrian civil war

The Syrian civil war began seven years ago this week, when Syrian security forces shot and killed protesters in the city of Daraa. Although Syrian President Bashar al-Assad made a public speech hoping to end the unrest, he promised nothing specific and did nothing to change the situation.

The next few months were filled with a flurry of economic sanctions and condemnations from the United States, The Arab League, the United Nations and the European Union, among others. In October 2011, opposition leaders created the Syrian National Council, with the goal of deposing Assad and creating a democracy in Syria.

Assad has repeatedly been accused by the United States and other members of the international community of ruthlessly targeting civilians in an attempt to reassert his control over rebellious areas of Syria. Cities and regions under rebel control, including Aleppo and most recently Ghouta, have been bombarded by attacks with civilian populations trapped inside.

Assad has even used chemical weapons on his own people, including sarin and chlorine gases.

Attempts to broker a truce have all ultimately failed. On Feb. 24, the U.N. Security council approved a temporary cease-fire, but this has not yet taken effect. On Feb. 26, the Russian government ordered Syria to enact a daily five-hour cease-fire to allow humanitarian aid into the Ghouta suburbs of Damascus. This Russian-backed cease-fire began on Feb. 27, and was almost immediately broken.

While Assad calls himself a “president,” he has been in power since 2000, when his father, the former President Hafez al-Assad, died.

For anyone questioning the purpose of the 2nd Amendment, look no further than Syria. It is a perfect example of a population of "subjects" rather than citizens.

the story in Syria is not as simple as paint above.
It takes 2 to tangle, and the Syrian "rebels"/ISIS/alNusra/AlQueda backed by the Turks, various Arab states, Israel and the the U.S. gov't have done it's fair share of damage. Allotting "85%" of it to Assad is, to say the least, ONE SIDED reporting.

MSNBC, Chris Matthews, and a race-baiter.

The trifecta.

I seriously don't think libs can intelligently debate without using the race card.
