Japan wants to fuel the war

-17 ( +17 / -34 )

An the endless war machine continues

-10 ( +17 / -27 )

Kishida is trying his hardest to buy his way into being seen as a diplomat. Just like so many other PM's in Japan before him, namely Abe, they want , they crave, international recognition because the are unable to get anything done domestically.

Will japan send soldier and weapon to Ukraine?

No, article 9 of the constitution prohibits it.

Trying so hard to be relevant that it's embarrassing.

Great news. Keep good going...

Japan is preparing for war as it should be. An attempted invasion of Taiwan by the CCP will be devastating for Japan, a country that can't even feed 40% of its population without imports.

Bravo! Bravissimo! PM Kishida! Ukraine needs all the help all the world can give! The Russian bear must be killed to save Ukraine from its jaws.

Mr. Putin can pull the plug on his deadly venture any time he wishes to, but his stubbornness and pride are guiding him to his end along with many innocent lives.

Britain's Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, the start or end of the row?

The "bookends" are all unelected, Sunak, European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, French President Emmanuel Macron would dearly rather just launch Prime Minister Rishi Sunak head first into the press pack below.

President Biden center stage would rather the next NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg be Ursula von der Leyen the former German defense minster........ well read and weep.

Germany’s army is so under-equipped that it used broomsticks instead of machine guns

“the trans-Atlantic alliance is concerned about China's "heavy military buildup”

If I were Chinese, I'd be concerned about the U.S.A.'s heavy military buildup. The U.S.A. isn't surrounded with Chinese bases!

Isn't it time to quit this ridiculous game?

NATO needs new money sources that’s all.

NATO needs new money sources that’s all.

That is someone with no understanding of how NATO finances work. A little reading might help.

The mayor money sent to Ukraine must be well over a trillion dollars by now, my question is do these governments really know where the money is going to? I think the U.S government recently admitted to making mistakes worth billions.

My Japanese students don’t even know that much about the situation in Ukraine.

I wonder how long will the J-Gov continue sending money before the Japanese start questioning these politicians.

Kishidas pandering to the G-7 and Biden will lead to a bad end…I’ve seen war…it’s beyond anything you can imagine!

Yeah nothing has changed. Politicians trying to buy their own personal influence in the world using our money.

Vassal states showing allegiance to their master.

Japan has no option out while NATO calls the shots. The day USA and Japan break-off ties, Japan will be subjected to the brutal mercy of BRICS - this is non-negotiable.

Why are they standing in front of the wrong flags?

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

Kishida and Japanese desperately wanting to be involved with war. Or he brown nosing NATO in hopes of support once china strikes japan

Japan should stay away from both NATO and the current conflict. Nothing good will come of it...

Japan should stay away from both NATO and the current conflict. Nothing good will come of it...

On the contrary, handing Russia a Vietnam level failure will cause even Xi to spend another decade strengthening his forces before starting anything.

I wish they'd stay out of it

Russia will not fail. The more the West (and Japan) "help", the more Ukrainians die.

They failed in 1917 and again in Afghanistan in 1980s. They can do it again, I know they can!
