At ANY cost.” -

"We can't deny the danger that many kinds of new virus variants will bring to Tokyo from around the world,"-

Might as well be yelling at a stone wall.

But organizers say they can safely hold the Games thanks to virus countermeasures and point to a string of successful recent test events, including some featuring overseas athletes

once the games are held and the virus surges the organizers will bow and apologize and promise to study the situation as to why the games were not held without an increase in infections.

Lip service and bows, the rich will get richer and the country will see a surge like no other. And if we get the indian strain we are up poop creek without a paddle.

Japanese is often an ambiguous language, but "impossible" is about as unambiguous as it gets. Cancel the Games now!

Politicians live in a different World from Reality - they always have, especially in Japan!

Doctors and Front Line Medical Staff are the actual Modern day Heroes - and should be listened to.

It was that way in America last year by an arrogant hateful dictator stirring up strife. 500000 Americans died from CoVid-19 alone last year, never mind the violence.

Japan, don't be like America. Don't be stupid. Don't ignore your doctors. Postpone the Olympic Games for another year, do it now!
