    This has been as much a war of propaganda and misinformation as anything else, so I'm fairly extremely skeptical of most of these apparently total randos.

    So you know the guy Brazil was championing for democracy, Lula da Silva, over Bolsanaro's reign of terror?

    He just seemingly gave a huge "fuck you" to Ukraine

    Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has rejected a request from the German government to send ammunition for battle tanks to Ukraine.

    The decision, made known this Friday, was taken last Friday 20 at a meeting of the Workers' Party (PT) with high commanders of the Brazilian Armed Forces and the Minister of Defense, José Múcio, according to the newspaper 'Folha de Sao Paolo'.

    The refusal would have occurred on the eve of the dismissal of the commander of the Army, General Júlio César de Arruda, as a consequence of the distrust within Lula's government after the coup attacks of January 8.

    How is that a fuck you?

    "Sorry my country is on the brink of civil war, now is not a good time to send you our ammo" seems like a very legit reason
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    Nah it has nothing to do with that. Brazil has a massive beef market in Russia and China; the Amazon is burned to create pastures for cattle that provide those countries with cheap beef. And soy production needs fertilizer from Russia (BRIC).

    Brazil basically doesn't want to piss Russia off considering this. Nothing to do with some civil war.

    there's a lot of drama over Russia allegedly staging a Quran-burning protest in Sweden that has severely hampered its accession to NATO; some have even declared it war because they think there is "no doubt" the Russians are behind it, street protests are occuring.

    Any opinions on this?

    2) Russia's involvement

    Turkey has suspended talks with Sweden and Finland on their applications to join NATO after the protest at which Rasmus Paludan, leader of the Danish far-right political party Hard Line, burned a copy of the Quran outside the Turkish embassy in Stockholm.

    Paludan's actions have led to demonstrations in several Muslim countries as well as in Turkey.

    "Swedes in Turkey are asked to stay updated on the development of events and to avoid large gatherings and demonstrations," the foreign ministry said on its advice page for Swedes abroad.

    "Continued demonstrations can be expected outside the embassy in Ankara and the consulate general in Istanbul in the coming days."

    I thought you meant there are street protests in "Finland".

    But nontheless, it still wasn't Finland. And it being ruZZia's doing is pretty flimsy, because these asshats are perfectly capable of doing it all by themselves, as evidenced by their past actions.

    The idiot has done plenty of Quran burnings before, it is kinda his shtick... I doubt that Rasmus is controlled by Russia although it wouldn't surprise me he is such a tool...

    Seems someone dropped a suicide drone onto the Iranian factory that makes....suicide drones.

    Could be any number of people who could have wanted to do that, including local protestors. Isn't too hard to put suicide drones together today.

    Looks like it is well ablaze.

    Seems like there have been multiple attacks across Iran.

    I doubt it's Ukraine, otherwise, Iran will literally take all their forces onto Ukraine's doorstep together with Russia.

    If it's Israel, Iran has stated before they would launch an all out-assault to annihilate it if they ever struck them first.

    Can rule out the West for obvious reasons.
