Posted in: Trump visits Kenosha, calls violence 'domestic terrorism' See in context

Man, its not enough that he’s allowed a pandemic to kill hundreds of thousands of Americans and tens of millions unemployed. Now he wants his country to burn too.

what utter nonsense! Almost all the countries in the world have serious problems with this virus! Don't you watch the news? oh probably only CNN.

And he wants the country to burn? what? Its clearly the democrat run mayors that want that! You certainly live in a sheltered place! Trump offered months ago to stop this violence but the cities refused

Posted in: First direct Israel-UAE flight lands in Abu Dhabi See in context

Their land??? Lol, I’ll say this, the West always shrieks about how the Palestinians are mistreated and yet, none of the Arab nations lift a finger to help them, they won’t even take them in and when they send them money inside Gaza, Hamas uses that money not to build schools or improve the infrastructure, they use it fund more terrorism or to create Qassam rockets to use to attack Israelis. So even the Arabs with their so called outrage don’t really want to be burdened with the Palestinian issue. If the Palestinians really want to come to the table and talk, renounce terrorism and then like with UAE the heating and trust can begin

all of this is accurate

 from the pandemic, which Trump's admin bungled,

as if he was the only leader to make mistakes, I seem to remember the WHO etc say that masks were no good and the WHO waited far too long to declare it was a pandemic

Trump stopped direct flights to china and was scolded for it, but yeh sure he made mistakes as I am sure the democrats would have done too, to imply that only Trump would have made all those mistakes is conjecture

Posted in: Huawei overtakes Samsung as top smartphone seller: industry tracker See in context

Huawei does make some really good stuff, but they also make some very cheap low quality stuff. Of course selling at a lower price will get more customers, if Apple etc wanted more market share they could cut prices. I wonder how many would buy Huawei phones if they were the same price?

I wonder what customer satisfaction is like? I have no idea, but I suppose you get what you pay for

Pretty embarrassing for Microsoft, after all .... they didn't have very many stores anyway .... compare that to all the Apple Stores! What is it? 4 or 5 in Japan alone!? I have never even seen a Microsoft store,

.... ok Microsoft have done much better under this new guy, their computers are pretty good, but don't rank very high in sales at all (from what I have seen) ..... hhhmmmm?

Posted in: Olympic torch relay organizers take measures against coronavirus See in context

I know its bold but I think they should hold the Olympics next year (put off a year). If even 1 person dies it just won't be worth it. Lives and health are more important than sport. They can still have it, just postpone it, makes sense

Posted in: California to apologize for internment of Japanese-Americans See in context

I know and totally understand from our perspective it doesn't look good. But you have to remember the mind set back then. It was totally different to now.

The Japanese had attacked the US and killed 1000s and the US had no experience of this before. It was WAR, it wasn't business as usual!

Posted in: Japan issues coronavirus medical guidance as infections rise See in context

Japan’s effort to stop the spread of this virus has obviously been inappropriate and unsuccessful.

but in all fairness to Japan, this is pretty much the same as most other countries, most countries so far have probably been lucky and I doubt very much that these figures we see each day are all that accurate
