    Completely disgusting behavior from Conservative outlets. No wonder they defended Kavanaugh so fiercely.

      If you are going to cry ‘Fake Nude!’, at least show some tits. A photo of someone’s feet is fake news, not a fake nude.

    Turkey Oviously haven’t been given the message:

    “Turkey finishes construction of 764-km security wall on Syria border

    Turkey has completed the construction of a 764-kilometer (475-mile) concrete wall along its border with Syria, according to a Turkish official on Saturday

    Ankara had launched the construction project in 2015 to build an 826-km (513-mi) wall on the Syrian border, as part of Turkey’s measures to increase border security and combat smuggling and illegal border crossings.

    The border wall project incorporates physical, electronic and advanced technology layers.

    The physical layer includes modular concrete walls, patrol routes, manned and unmanned towers and passenger tracks.

    Modular walls are being erected along the Turkish-Syrian borderline with seven-ton mobile blocks, two meters wide and three meters high. The blocks have also been topped with a one-meter-high razor wire.
    An electronic layer consists of close-up surveillance systems, thermal cameras, land surveillance radar, remote-controlled weapons systems, command-and-control centers, line-length imaging systems and seismic and acoustic sensors.

    The advanced technology layer of the project includes wide area surveillance, laser destructive fiber-optic detection, surveillance radar for drone detection, jammers and sensor-triggered short distance lighting systems.”
