The U.S. subscribes to a "One China" policy that formally recognizes only Beijing, but binds the U.S. government to provide democratically ruled Taiwan with the means to defend itself.

This is just bull. It's all about diplomacy. You know damn well that the U.S. "formally recognizes" Beijing is only a formality.

Yokosuka, outside of Tokyo is like saying Philadelphia is outside of New York. There are 50 kilometers and TWO major cities between Tokyo and Yokosuka. Who edits this stuff?

A lot of US money for the Taliban to be playing with, and exchanging with Russia.

Trump would not have left behind all that equipment.

What an incredible waste that comes back to bite the US.

N Korea fires 2 ballistic missiles on eve of Harris trip to Seoul

Incredible that this administration is getting schooled by these countries still, China, Russia, NK. Throw in the Taliban while you're at it.

Embarrassing.

Or, do you have any reference that says the skin is called as our outer nervous system?

https://www.spine-brain.com/treatments/treatments-spine/cervical-neck-epidural-injection/

dermatomes

For the medically untrained, this means areas of skin, each of which is connected to a single spinal nerve. Together, these areas create a surface map of the body. 

Case closed.

What numbers do you think will be hidden? The article clearly says the reporting of positive cases will continue the same, only names and addresses of those at lower risk will no longer are required to be included in the reports

I don't "think" numbers will be hidden. If you read the article past the first paragraph the answer is right there.

I've been saying this since March 2020.

Which made absolutely no sense at the time,

Good to see you finally understand it now. These things can take time.

The WHO has made many tragic mistakes and most fo the times third world countries suffer as a result of mistaken "advice" by this agency,

The West also fell victim listening to the WHO's advice at the beginning of the crisis by listening to its advice that makss are not necessary for the general public, when actual international medical experts in Asia were advising to the contrary.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/30/world/coronavirus-who-masks-recommendation-trnd/index.html

No one has any source showing that wearing masks increase the rates of infections in the general public so the WHO just threw out careless advice without any scientific support.

Anyone that argues the WHO was correct with this advice (which would be bizarre since the WHO reversed its position) would believe that it was correct to advise blood lettings for ailments such as throat infections, and have those carried out by barbers.

That's two points of reference in a broad timescale. A trend is by definition an ongoing current development.

You using the term to refer to the last several months is correct but my using it to refer to the last 12 months is incorrect?

Also for the record, cases in Tokyo today are just 44% higher than this date one year ago and the trajectory has been on a steep decline for months

No, 5327 cases today versus the @150 cases a year ago is not only 44% higher. A couple 1000% higher.

Again no, because the benefit of lockdowns are much lower with a variant with higher transmissibility, and the benefits are also less,

And, no, because the lockdowns reduced death rates dramatically according to statistical data, and continue to do so where used and any argument to the contrary is only based on personal bias.

the experts say the risk is decreasing, the measures are not longer so easily justified and they can actually cause worse public health problems then to use the argument of them being incongruent you actually need to prove it first,

No experts say this and your failure to provide a valid source further exemplifies that this is a falsity you try to continue to project.

*"The 442nd Infantry Regiment (Japanese: 第442歩兵連隊) was an infantry regiment of the United States Army. The regiment is best known as the most decorated in U.S. military history and as a fighting unit composed almost entirely of second-generation American soldiers of **Japanese ancestry (Nisei**) who fought in World War II."*

That might have had something to do with the size of the regiment, length of service and the high number of casualties (a cannon fodder outfit).

tearing up an agreement he had no clue about?

Compared to this clueless administration, it was quite necessary

"Corruption" is illegal here, it's just that most of the time these acts are hidden behind another word. E.g., "gratuities".

It is only illegal if you get caught within 3 years... Statue of limitations.

Since Monday, Kishida has met with more than 30 dignitaries on the occasion of the state funeral for Abe, who was fatally shot during an election campaign speech in July.

38 to be exact...

https://news.yahoo.co.jp/articles/8e8dfc7c873a66e04e146a5e02dc5a780556af3d

...which is a far stretch from:

The Japanese government said that over 4,000 people joined the funeral on Tuesday in central Tokyo, including delegates from more than 210 countries, regions and international organizations.

Assuming three 10 hours-days, and expecting some people to have more time allocated (US/Harris, India/Modi, Australia/Albanese, etc), that is less than 1 hour per meeting for the others.

Such as presumably what looks like a 5-minute tops meeting:

In a separate meeting earlier Wednesday, Kishida also confirmed with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen that the two countries will work together for better relations, the Japanese ministry said.

...which meeting which incidentally confirms that there are other platforms where Kishida could discuss in much more details and with more pint-point selected counterparties and pre-defined fleshed-out agendas...

Kishida said Japan will fully cooperate with Cambodia toward a summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and related annual gatherings to be held in November in Phnom Penh. The Japanese leader is expected to attend some of them.

The Japanese government said that over 4,000 people joined the funeral on Tuesday in central Tokyo, including delegates from more than 210 countries, regions and international organizations.

4,200 to be exact.

https://news.yahoo.co.jp/articles/a0e81af91fefb49f32566a833a818cee99527e06

Targeted figure was 6,000, which was later reduced to 4,300 and now it seems another 100 went AWOL over yesterday...If you happen to see quite a few seemingly lost gaijins in the Tokyo area, please call the Gaimusho.

Unsurprisingly, the first articles mentioning a post-Kishida PM are appearing...

In truth, the ragtag Kuomintang army with the support of the United States fled to Taiwan and launched a White Terror campaign to subdue the local Taiwanese people which included such brutalities as the February 28 Incident wherein 20,000+ local Taiwanese were killed. Martial law was then established and would last for 40 years.

The CCP broke the mainland away from ROC who was the rulers of China, not the other way around.

Gee, you think that has something to do with Trump tearing up an agreement he had no clue about?

add to that the absolute pummeling the guy and his party are getting in the polls.

The pummeling? lol You make it seem as if polls don't favor the party that isn't in the whitehouse on midterm elections. Of course, Democrats are the underdog here, but it's not as bleak as you claim, and in recent weeks the polls have been swinging towards, not away from Demcrats.

It sure is. But you know what part of the world is now entirely useless to the part of humanity that matters? Russia.

And it needn't have been so. Russians should be as rich as an Argentine with their immense resources. But they aren't, they are dirt poor and always have been. All they have to do is sell their wares, be content within their own ginormous country and they could provide their citizens with very comfortable lives.

What kind of nutter looks at a world map and thinks that Russia isn't big enough?

While she is visiting Japan to attend the fubereal of former Prime Minister of Japan, Mr Abe, American Vice President Harris is most unwise to be saying anti-China words about Chna's natural reaction to Nancy Pelosi's uncalled-for visit to Taiwan. She is stepping on the tail of the dragon.
