The Japan, US, Philippines coalition is shaping up quite nicely. Taiwan and the free seas around it - beautiful seas and coral islands - need careful protecting

Details of the plot were kept under wraps to respect Murakami's desire for "readers to discover it without knowing anything beforehand", Shinchosha said at the time.

Well the point is, Myanmar has been open to investment for a lot of Japanese companies over the last ten years because it was becoming a more stable and democratic place. Like Russia, some Japanese companies have probably been slow getting out, but a lot did as soon as the coup happened, and the Japanese government condemned it. You would expect all Japanese companies to exit now, with the welcomed increased media attention Myanmar is now getting .

I’d fire ‘em all, or dock their salaries. Or why don’t they just quit and find another job? Not because I don’t sympathize with people that are low paid. But because we have just come out of a pandemic, and are now in a war with inflation and high energy prices. Everyone is suffering, and those that strike, are sticking the boot in for the rest of the population who want a hospital appointment or need to catch a train somewhere. At this moment in time, hate to say it , but it’s cynical and selfish to strike. Negotiate with your bosses privately, or quit your job, or suck it up until more stable times

Good. Myanmar needs all the help it can get. Russia and China, etc., selling the army there planes to bomb kids and civilians. Horrific.

Cool. Tell Russia we don’t negotiate with murderers, but after they’ve mopped all the blood up, we’ll have a rethink.

But no one cares what North Korea thinks because they are a joke of a country that contributes nothing good to the world whatsoever.

Nothing against Russians per se, my good friend is one, but Ukraine should be given a surplus of fighter jets and bombers to send the invaders back to Russia quicksharpish. It’s not even up for debate who is the aggressor and the wrong side here, although the internet will bark otherwise regardless

Give Ukraine some stealth bombers on the condition they only use them within Ukraine. Job done.

How’s it legal to wear a Z shirt in Australia? It’s the sign of invading a country, then putting a bullet in a Ukrainian civilian’s head and throwing them in a ditch, or raping and killing a Ukrainian woman. They are the same as the nazis, and it’s a sickening overlook from the Aussie government once again

A lot of people crossing their arms in that picture. It’s a sign of utter astonishment that their government did that.

Nice to see anti-US, anti-Japan comments dropping off a bit. They stand with Ukraine. As does the UK, the Baltics, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, Australia, South Korea, Taiwan, and the rest of the Allies. Mr. Zelenskiy is an exceptional leader of our times. And the Ukrainians fight fascists for all of us. Love and respect to Ukraine.

Good. It shows Russia that their invasion of Ukraine has made them an enemy of not only Europe and the U.S., etc., but Japan too. Such an invasion will never be tolerated. The Allies are strengthening by the day.

The nature of Russia’s unprovoked invasion is so brutal and cynical and nasty that countries have no choice but to sever ties with Russia. Of course it’s a deeply uncomfortable situation to be in, with energy bills rising, but as a human being, there is simply no other way to act. You can’t look on and explain it away with silly thoughts like ‘ wars happen’. This one is unprecedented in its implications - That it is waged by a super power who had openly said it seeks to destroy us. To not act is to lose.

Nice woman, but I constantly tut-tutted her Covid policy. Being overly cautious, and then draconian. At the end of the day, this liberal wave of politicians that she was one of overly focused on equality and Me too and BLM, as well as poleaxing Trump and his ilk, at the huge risk of not seeing what was happening in China, Russia, Iran, etc. They were slow to act. This emboldened monsters like Putin, and now Jacinda doesn’t have the fight in her to deal with it. What the west needs now are harder, tougher, dare I say it nastier politicians to clean up the trash

Here’s an idea for the couple of weeks / months :
1) Kishida pay a visit to Kiev
2) Send Ukrainian troops to Japan and South Korea to train on weapons systems
3) Ship said weapons to Ukraine
In the name of international peace and democracy

People venting their anger on the comments sections daily. Not long now though, hopefully, when NATO begin to deploy tanks and troops and artillery to drive out the civilian killers. No one can stomach seeing civilians directly targeted each day. No European government can sit idly by for much longer.

According to Wikipedia : The "Napoleon complex", known informally as small man syndrome, is a syndrome normally attributed to people of small stature. It is characterized by overly-aggressive or domineering social behavior.
This man is all bark and no bite. He has a recent history of coming up with the nastiest things he can think of. Better to just ignore him and he’ll go away soon.
