But who gives a crap about Silesia anymore? The Bund der Vertriebenen is a joke - its only purpose is to serve as an easy target for comedians. And even legitimate Allied war crimes - the bombing of Dresden, for example - are strict neo-nazi issues.

I'm more interested in why he did say "Germany and Ukraine", as if they were allies in WW2.

Why is that so strange? Poland and Hungary both where invaded/liberated by the USSR, and they were on opposite side of the conflict.

To get sympathy from a German audience? First Russia takes Ukraine then you'll be next? Something like that.

But yeah, I think he severely overestimates the effect of that comparison.

(Actually implying that Ukraine was allied to Nazi-Germany in WW2 would be a really stupid move because that would be guaranteed to cause an adverse reaction.)

this is direct prodding at the extreme misconduct the red army is claimed to have partaken in on german territory

as in, he's saying "the barbarians are being barbarian and will barbarize our things"

Yeah, I got that - but since we've built our national mythos on having committed the worst crime in history, making the armies who beat us back then look bad is not an effective method of getting support...

Also it seems that they all left their ID-cards in their car, maybe that's why.
And now I read that just one of the brothers forgot his ID, so yeah.

Anyway, apparently they robbed a gas station (???), and the police say they have a general idea of where they are.
They stole gas and food from a gas station in Villers-Cotterêts. Police is now looking for them around Crépy-en-Valois.

It is at 30km from where i live  :-X

Well, they don't seem to be out to kill as many people as possible. They didn't kill either the guy they hijacked a car from, or the station's employees. Just duck, cover, do what they say and you should only loose property.

Personally, I feel that the western media needs to double down on depictions of Mohammad.

Someone needs to make an insulting pornographic film about Mohammad that depicts him as having a micropenis and his wives resorting to lesbianism as a result.

EDIT:
Don't get scared, don't get angry either; just get even more disrespectful.

Yeah, because that's very... mature.

In all honesty, I can understand part of the reaction. Many of those cartoons were of bad taste or downright offensive. The fact that the authors got shot don't really make them better.

Its also a lot better than going and machine gunning a bunch of people who hold and express views that we do not like.
