Lots of discussion about whether the free world needs policing by the US. You only have to look at Russia and China now to see that it does.

Finally. I love to see this kind of thing. It send a clear message to China and Russia that they need to rectify their appalling behavior.

The Taliban, plus these suicide bombers, are disgusting men that should be eradicated, until they start respecting all human life,

I won’t deny I’ve been enjoying these economic packages from our new nanny state. Cash in hand from Covid, then steady relief, now hopefully another cash package.
im pretty sure in tough times previous, the government just let people fall.

” no they’re not “
” what the hell have you done to HK?”
” Why are you in America’s arms?”

Of course, the McDonalds price index per country is usually quite a good indicator of general prices in a country…so one can expect every food item to increase in price in Japan over the next year.

MacDonalds stinks as soon as you walk through the doors. The floors are greasy, and it’s overcrowded. These price increases might bring the numbers of visitors down. On a personal slant, it might even get me off my occasional Big Mac and fries fix.

Anything to deter the plump fool that keeps firing off missiles into the sea. The cyclical back and forth between North Korea and Japan is sickeningly dull now. It’s time to shut him up for good.

this far right lot are arrogant and sleazy, but I find the whole woke left movement equally repulsive. It’s a comeuppance of sorts, always, in politics,

This guy hasn’t been very assertive against Russia. Aside from Ukraine itself, the UK, and the US have been the most assertive, with weapons and training .Although Joe’s rhetoric hasn’t been as cutting as I’d like, you’d expect him to step up the game now. Poland, Lithuania, the eastern NATO members have been very strong. Scandinavian too. Macron had gotten much, much better. Germany has been useless. Japan needs to step up now too.

Pensions won’t lower. They will increase in value. Considerably even, once the next batch of prime ministers ( young people now ) come into office, and have to face that issue. Japan is a country with a solid system.

Russia would do well to take a glance at that audience, and get an idea of who they’re messing with.

They’d have to, unfortunately. It’s right next to Okinawa, which the Chinese would press against next. By invading Taiwan, they, like Russia now, would threaten the whole global current order. And we ain’t having that,

Why dress it up?
Summed up in a sentence : there is a power emergency because Putin has declared war on us.
what to do?
Defeat Russia militarily.
Japan can also recover their northern islands.
At the same time, China can be dissuaded from Japan’s other massive security issue. An invasion of Taiwan.
-8 ( +8 / -16 )
Good idea. Sanction them until they retreat from the military islands they have illegally built on beautiful reefs they don’t own. It’s outrageous,

Japan is the third biggest economy in the world still. A fine achievement for a country so small, when you think how big numbers one and two are. As with times before, the government’s economists and banks will figure out the best way forward better than anyone in this comments section, thank god.

China keeps the west guessing, while we all read it on our Foxconn China based iPhones, tablets, etc. in our China based clothing.
if and when China decides to join the Ukraine war or push towards China, there is going to be a welcome revolution, where nothing we buy, eat, use will come from China again. That will be good. It will then be the west that keeps China guessing, not the other way around. And I can’t wait.

Squid Game was a weeny bit like Battle Royale. But it was good. Succession was great though.

Noted on the fact they both weren’t Japanese. Brutal. There seems to be a trend with crime amongst Vietnamese immigrants in Japan. Before you scream for links/evidence, why don’t you Google it yourselves. Anyway, if there is a trend of serious crime with a certain set of immigrants, the laws will change and they won’t be coming here anymore, you can bet that.

At least China is getting the message and staying the hell away. It is going to be a beautiful day when the Russians are kicked out of Ukraine and their fascist kingdom back at home collapses into a heap of rubble. Again.

You might disagree with his policies, or you might agree with them. Regardless, he held the highest position in Japan, emperor aside, and for the longest time. He has earned the respect of a state farewell.

China should realize if they go within an inch of Taiwan or Okinawa, their forces will be blown out of the waters and skies.
