Wrong.if Japan agreed to be there and establish ties, it is indeed their problem as well.
Japan is bang in the thick of it. They're now sending the foreign minister to the ME to discuss Afghanistan among other things. They're squirming back to scr#wing Afghanistan, this time using " reconstruction aid" and such.

I guess it's Chinas turn now.
When uncouth barbarians gather for dinner, you'll expect quite a few broken Chinaware ( lol) and lots of mess won't you ? Someone has to pick and clean up it up. Like you,I guess China is the next MOST suited for the job, rather civil I'd think.

But tens of thousands of Afghans who have worked with U.S. and other NATO forces are seeking to flee with family members.
They're a pale shadow of those who supports the Taliban. A country doesn't collapse so soon if the system ( set by Westerners) had popular support. It's time to get out of town fast and leave the ruins ( lives and material) behind.

It's the same old story from the same old book. Go in foreign countries kill, pillage, plunder and leave. Afghanistan has been robbed of rare earth mi erals, copper, etc and the country devastated and now it's time to cut and run. Over US$ 3 trillion gone ! Ala Iraq, Lybia, Syria and Iran is soon to follow.

Japan has no legal standing over the South Kurils. J acquired the islands in the treaty of St. Petersburg in 1875 but relinquished them in the treaty of San Francisco. It's disingenuous for Jason to claim the Kurils are not part of the SF treaty. Moreover Russia is the de facto owner of the islands. This protest needs no response from Russia.

A business property must have legal owners. The Kurils do.

Letting China in is a mistake. Every association of countries they are let into results in nothing but trouble.
Unfortunate for such thinkers. China is the LITERAL centre of this economically intertwined world. Don't fight it. Embrace it.

...drop of 6.2 percent in Akita, northeastern Japan.
Guys !! The women in Akita are beauties to behold. If you are single and feel compelled by some inner dimension to be " charitable " in helping the situation in Japan, please head to the north of Kanto, find yourself an Akita no bijin and be fruitful. Japan will thank you.

They threw mud and resisted the Chinese BBI just because it's the Chinese doing it. Now, they are aping the Chinese by their Build Back Better..someone said something about .. ...being the best compliment ? If only there was cooperation instead of confrontation, the world would be a better place.

They're the G7 due to their history of military dominance, Replete with genocides, pillaging and plundering of other people's lands...now they're looking over their shoulders and quaking in their boots...in fear of the payback which I don't think China or any other country has any intentions to exact. Barbarians can ONLY think in barbarian's terms.

The US has about $ 8B military budget. That's bigger than the next 7 countries put together.
The US and allies in the G7 once colonized China.
The US and allies are operating their military and threatening manouvers at China's doorstep.
The US and allies in the G7 have their major and minor industries in China.
The US and allies owe China a great deal of money.
The US and allies have lost their prestige in many countries around the world due to their exploitative nature and unneccessary military interventions.
The US and allies behave like outlaws in a bad cowboy movie issuing ultimatums in these nonsensicke " red lines " yet they're the ones who've been crossing these red lines every which way.
The US, is driving the G7 to these confrontational posture even though it's obvious some don't want it.
The US and allies combined, already, spend tens of times more than China and Russia and are calling for MORE additional spending " to confront security threats" from Russia and China. while their own countries are falling apart in every way.
Could go on and on but just to sum up, the sheer hypocracy and stupidity of countries I once held in utmost regards baffle me !!

China IS setting the agenda for the G7. In other words G7 is copying China.
......Russia’s Vladimir Putin. The White House announced Saturday that they will not hold a joint news conference afterward, which removes the opportunity for comparisons to the availability that followed Trump and Putin’s 2018 Helsinki summit,
A massive Presidential embarrassment has been avoided here.

Scheming how best to scr*w the rest of the world. This is the club that gobbles up the world's resources and woe unto those who resist and choose their own sovereignity, they get branded and threatened China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela ... Feels like there ACTUALLY should be a WWW3 soon just to rid ourselves of these predatorial tendencies.

Just yesterday, many international papers were afire with news of an overflowing amount of US$ in China, which is viewed as a problem for the Chinese.
Is Japan just reacting to the Chinese report ? Just asking.

The islands are Russian in every which way one may want to consider . Whether the US, UK or any other entity present at the signing of the SF treaty, who naturally but USSR/RUSSIA would have legitimacy ? So far Russia has administered them to no adverse effects to the security, economic , commercial situation, but only on political rhetoric. Here , again , the table is being laid....just maybe there might be a different angle.
