So basically the same trends as in 2021. Let's just add some more fancy words around it ('embedded' data and analytics! 'responsible' AI!) and push it out to the public, so that they think we know what's up.

As always, the truth is more nuanced. Read and learn please.

I highly doubt that the Dept of state's site is a source of truth in this case.

Assad has crushed opposition through brute force and an alliance with Russia and Iran

The American plan to overthrow the legitimate government failed, no wonder they are pissed.

Good for China to take the lead. Did you know that China plants more trees every year than any other country?

@Fighto: as was already pointed out in the comments, this is right in the article. I will quote it below just for you once again. Next time try focusing or taking a deep breath before going into your commenting bursts.

Officials from the zoo and the Tokyo government chose the names from more than 190,000 entries sent from around Japan and after consulting with the Giant Panda National Park in China, which owns the pandas.

Too bad Xi doesn't read comments here on JT, he would be so ashamed of himself..

Inconvenient truth 1: The twin will be (forcibly) striped of the names when returning to China at the end of contract. The ownership belongs to China.

No, the names are selected in consultations with China.

Well, given that Russia has Noble prize winning journalists, no wonder they want to separate those from the low-quality foreign media.

Posted in: U.S. special forces quietly training Taiwanese: official See in context

Yes, because a developed democracy (Taiwan) is the exact equivalent of a third world country tan by barely literate, conservative religious fanatics (Afghanistan).

Meaning the US will need to spend even more than what they did fighting Taliban?

Posted in: U.S. special forces quietly training Taiwanese: official See in context

Special training for Taiwanese troops. A new CIA unit to concentrate on China. Increase in military spending.

Special training for Afghan troops. A new CIA unit to concentrate on Afghanistan. Increase in military spending -- we all know what happened next.

The US had already trained the Afghan troops, we all know what happened next.

California has successfully addressed all the minor problems like drug use, poverty, wildfires, and now focuses on what really matters.

Posted in: Kishida, Putin agree to advance peace treaty talks See in context

No islands? No peace treaty with murderous Putin. It's rather simple.

You are continuously missing the point (maybe focusing too much on cliches?) Russia doesn't care about the peace treaty if it's on Japan's terms.

-7 ( +7 / -14 )

Posted in: Kishida, Putin agree to advance peace treaty talks See in context

Putin - return Japans 4 islands and only then you get your peace, and possible big trade benefits thereafter.

A good thing you are not running Japan's foreign policy! What a disaster that would be.

Posted in: U.S. reveals nuclear bomb numbers after Trump blackout See in context

What if the USA eliminates all or enough of China and or Russia s nuclear weapons to prevent them from hitting back?

How do you envision they would do that? Send in 007 to "cut that wire"?

Posted in: Japan to see price hikes in food, tobacco products from October See in context

and still Japan doesn't work towards being as self-sufficient as possible.

How would you suggest they do that? Japan has very limited natural resources and useable land for crops so they have to try on importing things like gas, oil, wheat..

Wouldn't this be the perfect timing to fully embrace the green technology? Add some solar panels to your car, coupled with a pair of wind turbines and off you go! Who needs the bloody fossil fuels, right? Just ask Greta.

Indeed. And these are the countries that accuse China of aggressive behaviour!

Posted in: Biden's Indo-Pacific shift under scrutiny with AUKUS alliance See in context

the Quad is more likely to pursue non-military initiatives, given that countries such as India, the only member among the four that shares a land border with China, and Japan, which has close economic ties with China, are unlikely to want the group to behave too antagonistically toward Beijing.

France has nothing to worry, QUAD ain't gonna do squat.
