Billboards In Iraq Are Warning People Not To Come To Australia By Boat

Anti-people smuggling adverts paid for by the Australian government have appeared in Iraq's capital Baghdad, warning people they will be sent home if they try to come to Australia illegally by boat. Facebook: Baghdad1 Written in Arabic, the ads translate to: "Do not try to come to Australia illegally by boat, you will be turned back". Images of the billboard were posted on a popular Iraqi Facebook page on Friday and have received thousands of comments. One person said the adverts are a recognition of the "failure and corruption" of the Iraqi government, that citizens would rather expose themselves to the risk of drowning in order to reach Australia than live in Baghdad. Another compared the ads to those in occupied Germany after World War II.

Here’s Why Facebook Says It’s Not Rolling Out The Rainbow LGBT Reaction Everywhere

Facebook Facebook is limiting the availability of its rainbow reaction, which is meant to celebrate Pride Month, and is offering very little detail as to why. The reaction is currently unavailable in a number of locations, including countries with repressive LGBT policies such as Russia. The rainbow reactions went live this month as part of Facebook’s pride celebration, and appear next to Facebook’s traditional “like,” “haha,” and “wow” reactions. But Facebook says it isn’t rolling them out everywhere because it is “testing” them. Facebook’s approach to its pride-reaction rollout is drawing criticism from some who think it’s playing into the hands of repressive governments. “This is shameful,” Jillian C. York, director for international freedom of expression at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, wrote on Twitter. “Facebook isn't even ‘kowtowing’ to anti-gay states, they're doing their job for them." In a post on June 5 announcing the new LGBT-themed reaction, Facebook said..

Vladimir Putin Punked The Hell Out Of Oliver Stone With Old US Footage

The Russian president told the venerable auteur that the footage on his phone was the Russian air force kicking ass. (Spoiler: it wasn’t.) Legendary filmmaker Oliver Stone conducted a series of interviews with Russian President Vladimir Putin for an in-depth look at just what makes Putin tick. Stone, the director of such films as JFK, Platoon and Snowden, once said that he believed that the 2015 revolution in Ukraine was a CIA plot, so it's easy to see why Putin agreed to sit down with him. / Komandir/Courtesy of SHOWTIME In the trailer for the third episode, Putin shows Stone footage of what he says is "the work of our air force" against militants in Syria. "You wouldn't want to join ISIS if you saw that," Stone intones in the trailer. youtube.com BUT. As it turns out, that footage on Putin's phone probably wasn't Russian at all. Instead, it seems it was as American as baseball, apple pie, and the Apache series of attack helicopter. / Komandir..
