Biden is doing ok. He came here and basically said to China, dont even think about invading Taiwan or we will attack you back. Good.

People love to come here for sushi. The roads are so packed in Kyoto these days. You can’t move for Chinese tourists. And Sky Tree. And okonomiyaki, I forgot that. And Disney Sea. And USJ. And baseball. People flock here for the baseball. And Tokyo. I was up on Ginza chuo dori yesterday and all the tour buses suffocated me. People buying brand new suitcases, oh my.

That’s because China and Russia are the enemy. And they’re poking. It’s lucky I’m not PM. They’d get two warnings, then I’d shoot them out the sky.

Posted in: Japan hosts Quad summit seeking unity on countering China See in context

To the above poster, QUAD is addressing the Indo pacific region, it’s not about NATO and Russia. This is about China first and foremost, and them killing a bunch of Indian soldiers last year in a border skirmish, and it’s about the islands in the China Seas, and Taiwan, and stopping China expanding. The QUAD is really empowered by having India on its side. It’s the right thing to be doing, and with any luck, and probably inevitably, either Russia will back down in Ukraine, or India will choose the right side to be on finally.

You’d think Syria would have had enough of war by now, but fine, if more of their troops want to die, and they want their country to be even more ousted than it already is, then they should go and hold hands with the Russian cowards.

What an awful decision. It’s like getting a bad virus three years ago and cancelling your schedule book out of fear for the next three years. Might as well be bold, is the other side of the argument. And for what it’s worth, I also got covid. It was very chesty, to the point of being a bit scary, sore throat too, but I was ok finally. Some are not. But regardless, is the argument.

62.9% of people with foreign roots in Japan questioned by police

with all due respect, it’s like saying 58.3 percent of non Japanese prefer salt popcorn.

i just don’t know what conclusions are implied, over what anyone who has lived here has a sense about anything here.

Posted in: Japan to expel 8 Russian diplomats See in context

Hiro, the aim of Ukraine is to defeat Russia on Ukrainian soil. It can be achieved with the right weapons. That is Zelensky’s idea, not mine. He continuously asks for bigger weapons to defeat the aggressor and I agree with him. He is fortunate that he has a very capable and willing army to carry this out. It’s not about hoping Russia will back down, it’s about defeating Russia in the meantime, so they crawl back into Russia and cease massacring Ukrainian citizens daily. If and when they start using chemical weapons, then that will be a game changer that will ultimately lead to their even quicker demise.

Posted in: Japan to expel 8 Russian diplomats See in context

All these daily reports of additional companies extracting their businesses from Russia, new sanctions on further Russian banks, exclusion of Russia from global organizations, list extensions of Russian elites with financial bans - these things don’t size up to a fat missile landing on 50 civilian heads, or 100s of citizens each with a shot to the back of their head. The only way to act is by funding and supplying the Ukrainian army with bigger, more sophisticated weaponry, for air, ground and sea, and lots of it.

Posted in: Japan lists 7 items for supply action over current Russia dependence See in context

These economic sanctions alone just seem tasteless. I’ve always maintained the sooner this man is in the ground like all of his innocent victims, or better, shackled and stood in front of The Hague, the better shape the whole world will be in. Him and the Chechen idiot, plus Laprov and Shoygu.

China is a disgrace too with their slippery opportunism, thinking somehow that this terrorist war might tilt the world in their favor. India also, although their excuse is just fear and economic interests. Which is obviously bad when it goes above morality, but not half as bad as China, who in turn are not half as bad as Russia, or more accurately, Putin and his gang of murderers.

He may address the Diet, with something along the lines,

” Russia is doing now what you did in 1941 “

anyway, unfortunate historical parallels aside, I hope his speech to the Diet will bring even more assistance from Japan , even more empathy from Japanese people , and more understanding that this war is also our war as it will eventually affect everyone here too if Taiwan is next and these savage autocrats succeed

The question being, at what point does NATO and the US intervene militarily and help a neighbor that is getting stomped on slowly? Because, regardless of NATO policy, it goes against all western values, Christian values, Samaritan values, playground values, family values, to just stand around and watch a friend get annihilated.

Good for them, they have my full support and I salute their bravery. Most folks are scared of the nuclear threat but I’m not losing any sleep over it. And this is how the West’s mentality needs to change. They have become softened by wealth, their perceived freedoms; they have become too precious. But like a dog or bear, he smells fear, so you must be fearless. As Ukraine is - although hammering on about how brave the Ukrainians are, is a distraction too. Instead, we should be doing more to help them. And the worst thing we can be is scared. So don’t be. The West will defeat his sordid plans like this.

It’s time for NATO to bloody Russia’s nose and bomb some of its artillery positions within Ukraine that are firing indiscriminately on citizens. The nuclear option remains an existential threat for everyone as Russia knows full well Moscow would be dust in seconds too.
