Posted in: Japan to provide $5 mil in support after Ukraine dam collapse See in context

Believe President of Indonesia will end up leading peace negotiations and put an end to this Military DANGEROUS Escalation. All Parties will have to make concessions.

Timeline, Oct-'ish', put it on the calendar, negotiations to be held in Switzerland etc.

Putin is already losing his dumb war. Japan has decided to hasten Putin's defeat. Good.

Sounds good, but your view based on what exactly?

Ukraine continued destruction, like this dam, steadily increasing likelihood of both permanent failed state and Dangerous Non-Conventional Escalation.

Goes without saying that reconstruction of Ukraine, including this Dam, will need to carefully be done to avoid known corruption there - Per US Leaked CIA Intel.

Obviously, no rebuilding can occur until sustainable peace achieved, likely UN forces needed etc.

Also, Alcaraz has some history with cramping and injuries, for someone so young. Surprised his coach, former #1 and RG champ, hasn't worked on this more.

Seems great champions LOVE the pressure, true in all walks actually, Djoker's thriving in this historical pursuit, quite different than Nadal who seems rather tortured. Seems massive media hype & Anti Djoker hurt Alcaraz.

Good point, but if you look at tennis tournament history, ratings based. Plus, recovery after slightly earlier HOT day session tougher than COOL night session.

It was rigged, seems obvious growing Anti Serbia related to their close historical Russian connection and genetic ancestors. Though nobody will say so, as Nole's more Russian than most Russians I expect!

Rather ridiculous to treat people based on such stereotypes, rather than their character. Who can change where they were born, who their relatives etc.

Glad Wimbledon abandoning discrimination this year, As all athletes ANTI War, only insane maniacs support War, tennis players very logical, especially professionals!

It's important for all to recognize that MOST EU citizens no longer support Ukraine military assistance. Kishida and Japan should recognize this political reality.

Furthermore, present EU leadership on average about 2x greater Unfavorable vs Favorable Ratings. Thus, only real partisans continue to support EU leadership. Why? Most EU citizens do not support military escalation.

Recent EU elections in Greece, Spain & Turkey, anti-war catalyst, EU leaders take note or pack their bags.

US GDP growth rapidly slowing, only positive due to massive Govt. Deficit Spending. Corporate bankruptcies increasing rapidly as well. Consumer spending falling on any inflation adjusted basis, volumes dropping.

Extreme concentration of market gains, mega tech with AI growth models especially. Top 10 companies +30% of total market capitalization, historical concentration. Broader market, most companies struggling, especially due to increased financing costs.

But it seems no real banking crisis, as FRB's emergency credit line solved bank asset impairment issue. Very strange how LOW Volatility indexes are right now. NOT good leading indicator = LIKELY more volatile soon....

Many do not realize, Muslim population, +2 billion or +25% of world, growing +2x faster than global average.

Japan desperately needs to better connect with this important demographic, that's recently sought out China's leadership to Reconcile Suni and Shia Muslims, while intentionally excluding US to do so.

China's also aggressively recruiting Muslim Countries for BRICS Membership, especially Muslim leadership countries like Indonesia, Saudia Arabia, Iran, Egypt, etc.

Emperor's constructive Muslim Country engagement even more critical in these very dangerous global times.

Russia did not complain about Sweden sending battle tanks, and holding joint drills with Ukraine. This is not about what Japan is sending, just stirring trouble for the sake of stirring trouble.

Nice if it were so simple. But if countries change their support stance to include direct military assistance, then others can obviously do likewise, like China.

If any think continued escalation leads to likely positive outcome, think carefully again - Japan's leadership too!

Almost an hour after my earlier post about "innocent until proven guilty" being purposely forgotten by the MSN and its eyes-wide-shut followers, still no downvotes.

Understand you're a heavy weight here, clean-up hitter right? Anyway, think the President of Indonesia was Spot on when to paraphrase he said....

BOTH sides (Ukraine & Russian) feel Righteous and Just in their Cause, their backstory etc. But rather than this zero-sum attribution game, let's get UN peacekeepers, including Indonesian Military Personal to establish conflict free border zone.

President of Indonesia, wise man indeed, as there is NO Innocence among Ukraine or Russian Leadership & this Proxy War Increasingly Gravely Risking all of Humanity.

What I found so strange, WHY the TOP match played in the afternoon. Weird....clearly EU TV audience, media ratings, Ad money etc. would have preferred evening match, many more tennis fans in Europe than US etc.

Seems like RG was trying to tip the balance in Alcaraz's favor? Nole's known to do well in evening matches, only 2x he beat Nadal at RG - evening matches. Ironic, seems he managed heat far better, so it helped him in the end.

Nice accurate analysis above, Djoker's performance yesterday and historically SPEAKS Loudly Indeed!

Find his willingness to share, his role model in general far greater than Nadal or Federer. They were too busy being Corp. Risk Mgmt. Experts vs. Truly Impactful = Nole

Thomas Jefferson used to say that a person who does not read newspapers is better informed than one who reads them all the time. In other words, he stated that they were full of lies.

The western media is owned by same people who are promoting war against Russia, so obviously their news are used to fuel the agenda against Russia.

Excellent point and so true, bias and agenda so obvious, same people who love the term Democracy, so busy being with anti-free speech, suppression agenda, etc.

Fortunately, EU Democracy very robust, people very educated, so the Media much less impactful. EU citizens understand the terrible nature of war at their doorstep and the true complexity of Ukraine Russian tensions.

Most EU citizens want to rebuild Ukraine to become peaceful Democracy, not dangerous Proxy NATO Force

More escalation by Japan, more risk for ALL Globally.

To paraphrase Indonesian President, he had it JUST right, when he stated...

Both Sides, Ukraine and Russia, feel Righteous and Just. But rather than figure out historical attribution, let's get UN Peacekeepers, including Indonesian military personal to create conflict free border zone ASAP.

Further escalation, Not Likely lead to Better Outcomes for Ukraine or World, Likely Exact Opposite = WORSE

While Dam destruction terrible and easy to imagine, just cost of 'de-mining' Ukraine FAR higher in reality.

Human cost of this conflict FAR greater than Ukraine infrastructure damage e.g., dam; especially global food inflation leading to big increases in malnutrition, starvation, crime and economic damage etc.

EU citizen anti-war movement gaining big traction, per recent elections in Greece, Spain & Turkey. Proxy War risking global nuclear escalation & **massive collateral damage *(e.g., dam)* NOT Supported by Majority EU Voters.

Hope they can discuss with Indonesian leadership why Indonesia now seeks BRICS Membership. Critical issue, G-7 & West clearly key BRICS 'Safe Haven' consideration.

More great news for consumers and EV adoption! Tesla willingness to share its IP and other assets like charging stations, clearly a positive EV growth catalyst.

Keep in mind new solid state iron phosphate batteries just developed, far cheaper with no rare earth and far less lithium, give current model Y range of 800+ miles under normal conditions. Thus, need for charging away from home will be for travel purposes only. Estimated by 2030, +98% of consumer charging = home based.
