  • WOW! That place is awesome!
    I think I might want to buy a condo or an apartment there.
    Random aimless gunfire in the streets, trash everywhere, dark drab buildings, and advanced urban decay!
    I see some very nice spec property opportunities there.
    They even have a fully functioning mass transit system and what appears to be a fully capable first responder emergency system too.
    It even looks like they also might have some strong 2nd amendment-like laws there as well!
    SWEET!

  • Dirty, trash-filled streets and people shooting at each other?

    This could be anywhere in the (muslim) world.

  • Cool video, but the fucking reporter is really annoying. He is like, "Oh my God, they are firing from two sides, Oh, they are firing from four sides, firing is done from all sides, oh no, the situation is really tense, as you can see*100 time"
    At first he sounded like a sports commentator, then he sounds scared shitless, then again excited, what the fuck, both the police and the gunmen can't really fight, just shooting in the air, like the guy in the beginning that is posing for the c More..

    • @MrSlave Hahahahah! I was thinking the same thing!! LMFAO!!! I was also thinking what the camera guy must have been thinking. Something along the lines of "man if you don't shut the fuck up right now i'm gonna steal one of these cop's guns and kill you myself."

  • This makes sense now. I looked up, "Lyari," and it comes from an old sanskrit word meaning, literally, "the people who fight in middle of street without taking cover." Aptly named town...

  • i laughed so hard at 4:40 when the reporter ducks down and the camera pans to an old man walking on the sidewalk. Hahahah! He was probably thinking, "pussies! Aren't you from Pakistan? I've been saying this shit for years now."

    • @mylostsoul You're a piece of shit. Shooting civilians is illegal enough.

      Shooting journalists is way worse. Both of these actions violate international law. They are grave violations of the Fourth Geneva Convention, and the penalty is death.

      FUCK! THE STATE! IT'S POWER THAT WE HATE!



      FUCK THE POLICE! NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!

      Occupy Wall Street.

    • @sk8tafrnk take a shower, you hippy sheepy, if the dumbass wants to report during a firefight and is standing in the middle of the street....its Darwinism at best

      kind of like you, no, your not doing shit, your movement has no solid message or organization, your getting punked everywhere, your just loser a chanting the same old tune holding the same old signs, get a life/job/family, you'll change your tune real quick

    • @mylostsoul No solid message? The opposition of social and economic inequality in the US, and the influence corporations, mainly fraudulent financial institutions, have on the government.

      The fact you can say it in one sentence makes it a pretty clear message in my opinion. Unless you're fucking retarded. They're organized the same way any other successful protest has been organized in history. The big difference is there's little disagreement within the Occupy protests, contrary to the Civil R More..

    • @mylostsoul Most people who are making billions didn't come from nothing you moron. Statistically, if you're born in a wealthy family, that's where you stay. If you're born in poverty, that's where you stay. Moving from poverty to billionaire status is a bit like winning the lottery.

      I have a job you moron. In our current economic state, there isn't enough jobs for everyone. I'm fighting for people who can't support themselves.

      What people can't protest? Egyptians, Syrians, Russians, Afghanis, More..

  • What a fucking clown show. Apparently the chimp with the scoped AK hasn't figured out that you have to put your eye to one end of the scope in order to aim with it. Fuck. And these retards have a nuclear weapon? Fuck the world.
