The internet used to be fun, sites like 4chan were a good laugh but then we realized most people are too gullible, they truly believe anything. Then it got scary..

No. Especially in Japan. Do you not know how “justice” works in Japan?

Bad apples everywhere, I remember a story about a witness that was due to testify against a corrupt cop. She went missing and was later found to have somehow drowned in sand. This was in safe QLD Australia, home of the corrupt coppers since the state first began. Many deaths in custody over the years.

I recently watched a story about this and is a very interesting option for pet owners as well.

Posted in: 'Child soldiers' and blood feuds: Sweden's out-of-control gang wars See in context

Muslim immigrants in general are not the problem, same as any people, there are the good and bad.

The problem with Sweden is similar to Australia when the doors were opened to Lebanese immigrants and there were a number of particular families, that were nothing but scumbags in their home country and brought their trouble with them. From day dot, they were trouble and several generations later, there is an entrenched criminal network thriving.

When immigration checks are done, it is not always possible to see what potential dangers are being allowed in until too late. If a gang member that does not integrate well in Swedish society is identified, they should be removed from Sweden.

I don't think it should matter if they are 1st or 5th generation, back to the land of your ancestors for you!

says a lot about what the global masters think about the planet and how they regard the majority of the population.

If people were cynical enough, we could see a lot of the current research/development and investments as their answer. It's certainly nothing that benefits all, holding their focus.

China and Russia running bombing simulations off the coast of Japan is purely aggressive and Japan should be concerned. This has very little to do with the USA and more about intimidating their neighbors.

China and Russia can never be considered responsible world partners with their current leadership.

Gotta laugh at all this pessimism, a smart person can see the problems but it takes an intelligent person to find the solutions. And this forum is full of a lot of smart people.

Never been a better time than right now to invest on Japanese manufacturing again. That is, If they can get past the fact that immigration will be needed to help it grow.

But the main reason Trump is by far the worst candidate is that he is a narcissistic, self-serving, unintelligent, useless, fascist who achieved nothing in his first term

Always overlooked by the ever outraged right. The theocratic fascists want him to champion their cause to create their ultimate 1950s utopia.

Posted in: U.S. military, diplomatic leaders urge divided Congress to send aid to both Israel and Ukraine See in context

the world is at a major crossroads for geopolitical dominance of the remainder of this century. Should the democratic nations fail against the autocrats, the rules and tone will change for the worse. What is truly scary is the navel gazing and infighting within the USA. At a time when unity is needed in the face of tyranny, the world has never seemed more divided.

Posted in: Russia says it shot down 36 Ukrainian drones as fighting grinds on in Ukraine’s east See in context

Unless those underdogs are Palestinians, Syrians, Lebanese or Afghani.

Palestinians, the world is trying to restrain Israel from going too far, although proving a little difficult after recent events. There have been many attempts to broker a peace between them and Palestine has generally large support for their cause worldwide, It's HAMAS we really detest.

Syrians, when the syrian government were slaughtering the protestors and it was turning into a complete horror show, Russia was against any intervention and the USA was setting up no go zones for syrian forces and protecting the kurds from being massacred, so not sure what you on about there.

Lebanese, during their long and bloody civil war, the west again was attempting to broker peace and accepting many refugees , providing aid through the 80's/90's. where was Russia? that's right in a drunken stupor after their communist empire imploded.

Afghani, the west tried removing the Taliban and after 20 years and billions of dollars in aid. The Taliban blended in with the citizens, slipped across the border to Pakistan for re-arming and were able to terrify the populous with bombings and assassinations. Afghanistan is a lost cause. Russia's efforts in that region were less than sub-par.

This is an opportunity that Tokyo seems to be missing by a mile. An event on the scale of the Sapporo snow festival is just begging to be held and what do the short sighted beaurocrats do? Demand people stay away. Embrace it and the money will flow. I know the crossing is what they come for but I’m sure with a little marketing and ingenuity, an alternative can be found.

Posted in: Russia says it rehearsed delivering a massive retaliatory nuclear strike See in context

No hypocrisy, just common sense, Russia and China have a record of being untrustworthy and in no way guarantees all testing can be detected. What was the point to it apart from wrapping the west up in red tape while China and Russia continue on with business as usual. It would have given the evil duo an advantage.

America with the first strike policy, not Russia?

Why would anyone say we would never use nukes first? It's like saying I would never throw the first punch... why wait to be hit? if you know it's coming, hit first.
