    “Progressing toward confessions”

    I was afraid of that…….that means the Russkis are water boarding the suspects.

    What is PM Justine going to do about this outrage? I hope he brings the full moral weight of Canadian values to bear on Russian diplomats in Canada. Expell them for starters!!!!

      waterboarding? I can’t imagine that the FSB methods to progress toward a confession are so humane.

      • Armaros

        They wish to be waterboarded

        • tom_billesley

          Especially just after the pepper spray.

    • Alain

      He’ll lisp his disapproval.

    • Canadian

      In Turdeau`s post-national state, there are no canadian values.

    In the words of Lucien Bouchard, ” this is an outrage!”

      In the ’90s , QR77’s Dave Rutherford held a call-in contest where the topic was, “What to Call Canada’s 2-Dollar Coin.”

      At the time, the Canadian Mint was having troubles because the centre of the coin would often fall out from the larger ring and this was causing headaches to the Mint folks.

      So a dude from Quebec called and said, “It should be called the Lucien Bouchard, because it wants to separate!”

      Yup. The choking laughter on air was hilarious!

    Spoken with the measured assurance of a Russki interrogator. Kinda good boys!

  • Spatchcocked

    Justine thinks they should take the suspects parkas away until they begin cooperating…….that’ll show them!

    • DVult

      Threaten to make them do a pushup. That is so excruciatingly difficult that they will talk right away.

  • FactsWillOut

    Surely they can just say their sorry and get some money?
    Oh wait, that’s in Canada.
    My bad.

  • That Slavic sense of humour. (Before you knock it, ask yourself whether Muslims, who live under a tyranny as absolute as the Soviets did, could come up with this stuff.)
    Remember this?: “Somali pirates captured and released by Russian navy ‘have died'”

    • felis gracilis

      Great quote and story. I guess those pirates had “progressed” beyond a confession!

      • Look, I honestly find it horrifying and everything. It’s just….funny.

        I’ll go shoot myself now. I deserve it.

      “””It would have been more humane to have hung them up from the yardarm,” (said) a rights activist, …””
      Naw, more entertaining. 😀

  • Spatchcocked

    They want Medieval?…….we’ll give you Medieval …..great heaping bushel baskets of Medieval.

  • Kathy Prendergast

    I’m sure the Russians have very progressive ways of making them “progress”.

    • tom_billesley

      They will progress beyond confession, and give up all their associates

  • jack burns

    Russians have their own strange style of understatement. ‘Progressing’ no doubt due to high doses of thorazine followed by no thorazine accompanied by Mega Death at 747 volume while standing for a week.
