Even if your hero Putin makes off with the scraps he has right now, he still has to explain to his people why Russia needed to have Vietnam level casualties for it.

@ Taiwan

I don't consider Western mainstream media as a legit source of news.

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

Again, this is NOT Ukraine's war...and NATO will lose, and I hope it loses big time. My heart bleeds for the Ukrainians who've had this war foisted upon them for a singular mission to destroy Russia and eventually China...as the geopolitical chessboard dictates. 8 million Ukrainians are exiled, weapons are pouring in and so is the money which is embezzled. The US and NATO are funding, equipping and manning this war, what does that make of Zelenski and Ukrainians ? You can read it from Zelenskis body language, sometimes effected to exude confidence but the diffidence is real. He knows He's not THE MAN.

. Japan and Co keep throwing fuel in there but not pursuing peace..

Posted in: China warns 'NATO-like' alliances could lead to conflict in Asia-Pacific See in context

What's wrong with the US ? Remove the US from wherever there's been conflict around the world in the past 8 decades and there's have been no conflict or at best very limited ones. This sums up who the perennial war monger is.

So far ships and trade routes in the Oceans have been smooth even to and from Japan, suddenly the US is " ..ensuring a free and open Indo-pacific..." Conducting ".. freedom of Navigation.." " Pivot to Asia.." and such nonsense. The sea Lanes have always been open !!

It's the US that's militarizing the Indo-pacific and the SCS, with military bases all around China and vigorously pursues military alliances with China's neighbors while exaggerating the dangers by China.

It the US sticks to the Monroe doctrine then it's "backyard" should stop in Hawaii or Guam at the furthest. Stop causing problems in the SCS ( South China Sea !! that name !!!

Scared of missing out, eh? Never mind, maybe Russia can do the same when they roll into Lisbon.

My bad !! It’s actually 400B$$. At least they should have a sense of shame, or ethics. Tears, blood and wounds should heal first before gorging themselves silly .

Posted in: Japan to provide 100 military vehicles to Ukraine See in context

The NATO Alliance and its side-kicks are simply clearing their dead stockpile of weapons... with hopes that Putin will exhaust his new weaponry and men.

Much of the arms to Ukraine come with caveats, can’t be used to strike deep inside Russia. Some need logistics, infrastructure and acquity well beyond Ukraine’s ( the F-16) .

What has Ukraine been doing with the Billions of $$ and equipment so far received ? For the past several months , there’s been a lull in fighting , apart from Bakhmut, it’s Russia missiles that have been pounding Ukraine’s infrastructure at will. ..while waiting for Ukraine’s spring counter-offence which, I know, will amount to zilch.

Do these Nato allies have any empathy for Ukraine as a country ? Or its people? The Belgodorov insurgency is a diversion meant to fool people that Ukraine has a chance , that something is happening within Russia.. but Russia can stop this war devastatingly, if it so chooses.

It’s time for people to tell their leaders to stop fanning the war. The share-holding rights in re-building Ukraine is not worth the life, limb and blood being lost. Japan has been here before... so much for Hiroshima “ peace” ...how myopic .

Strictly Militarily speaking, everybody is in bed with everybody else or their partner, no need to be coy about it because there are ONLY two sides here, the NATO led side and the “ Against us” side. The other significant fence sitter is India... just.

How I wish this was the news everyday from all quarters ! Instead we are blitzed with wars and rumors of wars, who’s sanctioning who and who can’t be friends with who. News always full of anxiety and fear is all pervasive today, just how did we get here ? It’s almost as if we are regressing back to neanderthals !

Referred to as "comfort women", more than 200,000 women were sexually enslaved by Japan's military during World War II, mostly from South Korea but also from other parts of Asia.

Hiroshima is now the altar for absolution. World leaders are brought here for sanctification.

"This piece of history will not disappear due to the death of the grandmas."

Finally at rest. The earthly Trauma has ceased.

Why is everyone sooo excited about Russia - Ukraine ? Haven’t we seen this thing repeatedly before ? In lands even further away ? Just replace The Ukraine with Iraq, or Libya, or Palestine, Afghanistan et al, then replace Russia with....oooh I forget ! It’s taboo to whisper the name.

We went about our business then, lets go to sleep.

@ Eyewideopem

I am just an observer, reading some articles and some of the comments from time to time. What's struck me is that a lot of commenters are of the black-n-white mindset when it comes to Russia vs. the West, as in "Russia must always be the bad guy and the West the good guy."

This is thebGeorge Bush 2 , If you are not with us BS. You can’t have a contrary opinion, just run with the crowd! What happened to reason ? Tolerance ?

G7 . . . .

In the 1990s the world, US, EU, JPN all extended our friendship and assistance to help the PRC join the community of nations. We helped build their economy which had been a basket case since 1949. As their economy grew the PRC claimed it was a "Peacefull Rise". 

They had their chance. They made their choice.

The same deals were once offered to the marvelled Asian Tigers... before they realized they were being conned. The World Bank and IMF would dictate impossible conditions with their SAPs ( Structural Adjustment Programmes) which are always meant to enthral the borrowers. Iremember Koreans citizens taking their own jewelry to pay up and rid themselves of the exploitation, so did Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia.

They offer you loans and you become a slave . You wonder how come The Global South can’t ( Will never completely) pay its debts?

Then there’s the Eastern Europe model, the IMF and World Bank recommended “ Privatizations “ of state industries and parastatals, they had just previously opened the Euro borders and all the youth of countries like Ukraine, Poland etc flocked west , any Briton servy of happenings in that period who reads this will attest.

Many countries in the Global South rues the day they met the Bretton Woods group.

The honest truth is that the US’ type of “ democracy “ is incompatible with a country like China. This US led democratic push is what gives Washington and its operatives the nooks and crannies necessary for “regime change” whenever they wish, ( So far how many democratic governments have been done in by the US?).

Because of China’s and Russia’s steadfast system they always get a “ access denied”.

Should the citizens of these countries want a regime change then let it be organic, from within not formented outside.

As it’s, the Chinese have already picked what they deem good from the “ democracies”, and we can’t deny it’s served them well...and surprise! No regime change is likely for a long time ! The Tibet issue - out ! The Uighurs - out!

Let’s learn to stay out of other peoples business.

zelensky is basking in the limelight while his country is burning down. He can’t back out otherwise the Global Financial Capitalists will do him in. The GFCs is striking two birda with one stone, totally degrade Russia and Western Europe. I, also, won’t be surprised if a false-flag op happens in a country in Europe so as to activate NATO’s article 5.

There’ll be NO winning against a nuke state with a people pathological averse to defeat like the Russians.

Posted in: G7 leaders discuss more sanctions on Russia for its invasion of Ukraine See in context

Plenty of commentators here say Africa is China's backyard.

A brief history why Africa will not dessert Russia and China.

In 1884-5 the European Powers ( Yes, the G7) met in Berlin ( the Berlin conference) and planned how to divvy up Africa. They did colonize Africa with horrible atrocities.

Post ww2 Africans broke the jinx of European superiority and started clamoring for independence. It wasn’t given so they took up armed struggle against their colonizers.

Guess who provided arms ? The AK 47 is every revolutionary’s and strugglers’ icon. The Russian AK47 helped many countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

It is The Russians and Chinese who spoke up on behalf of these beyoked peoples. They gave voice at the UN, provided arms , finance and rations in the bush wars against these G7 countries.

It’s the US and UK that propped the racist apartheid regime in South Africa for so long even branding Nelson Mandela a terrorist long after he had become the president of S. Africa. Is anyone surprised then why the Global South are reluctant to play ball with the G7? Would you ?

Even today, the US talks of South America as its “ backyard”, and P.Rico, Marianas, Guam as American “territories”. These Islands are thousands of miles away from the US . Britain too has islands and territories in the Carribean and S. America and once beat up Argentina for the Falklands( Malvinas), France has territories thousand of miles in Africa and Carribean and will readily go to war for them.

To claim Russia is an aggressor ( for putting things right on its doorstep) is double speak, so it will be for China with Taiwan as it was the same when the US almost went to War with USSR in the Cuban crisis.

Have these people gone bonkers ? Is The G 7 leadership totally oblivious of its own precarious situation. Both the economic and social conditions of these countries are in an appallingly bad state ! The US is in danger of commiting economic seppuku in two weeks, parts of Josep Borrell’s “ Eden “ ( France) is on fire , Germany is becoming decripit, in Britain almost everyone’s on strike. Stop arming, financing and prodding Ukraine. Fix those problems in your backyards.

Posted in: Russia fires 30 cruise missiles at Ukrainian targets; Ukraine says 29 shot down See in context

This is not a Ukraine - Russia war , it’s a war against Europe with the agenda being to destroy Europe itself with Ukraine & Russia being proxies.

There has been no convincing peace initiatives as the most serious ones, Minsk 1&2 were used as ploys against Russia.

The Global Financialists elite have always used wars for profiteering and the more this war drags on the better for them. They sell arms to Europe while clearing outdated arms by giving it to Ukraine but just enough to keep the war on. They are waiting on the sidelines to rebuild Ukraine’s infrastructure and provide social services, so the more the damage the better.

The conditions Zelensky is giving for peace are beyond him and utterly unacceotable to Russia, the super hype he’s getting from the media almost make me think he’s a ram being fattened for sacrifice with the aim of further spreading the war into Western Europe.

Europe might have served it’s purpose since ww2, but with a diminishing economy and birthrates, the Global financialist can only see prospects in the Global South , therefore letting Europe sink is not unthinkable for them. The G7 ( The Global Financialists’ ambassadors) are now here to move the agenda.

The G7 is a tool for the cabal of countries propagating the Master-Slave, Lord - serfs etc. Parasites on collective humanity intent on negating or stiffling inherent natural growth of entities by controlling the systems which otherwise would help others elevate themselves to their ( G7 group) status.

They meet to plan how best they can keep scr**wing the rest of us. Don’t believe me ? Their current agenda is ? How they can get a mutually beneficial relationship with the global South... in straight talk how they can keep the slaves from fleeing.

NIIGATA

The envisaged creation of a "mutually beneficial" partnership with developing nations for resilient supply ...

Finally ! It’s just dawned on these G7 countries ( The Global North) , most of whom were colonizers ( of the Global South) that we all need each other. The G7 ( GloNo) holds ALL the Capital, the “ others” ( GloSo) has the raw materials + Manpower.

The GloSo people are tired and not keen to keep an unbalanced relationship with the G7- their erstwhile colonizers . The G7 shouldn’t feign ignorance of having been bad stewards of power, and not understang why the GloSo is leaning towards Russia and China. Karma - The reckoning .

@ EGD

Russia is doing the right thing by not ( over) using its modern equipment. Putin knows NATO ( the US) is using Ukraine as a proxy to wear it down to a point that when it’s depleted the US will just come and mop-up. Plus Ukraine itself didn’t have good equipment ( until nato supplied it) then why waste its best ? Can you imagine wasting a modern multi- million anti-ballistic to shoot down a far cheaper , outdated missile ?

Posted in: Zelenskyy meets with Pope Francis at Vatican See in context

For those going on and on about Russian equipment being destroyed, or troops retreating ... these are all normal things in any war. Pugilists winners too do get battered. Just remember this is a seriously skewed war, Russia is fighting the full NATO + other countries ( Military personell, arms and financially) with its arms tied behind its back by the sanctions.

@ Ossan,

The Qing dynasty was succeded majorly by ROC under Sun Yatsen who’s Kai Shek’s father in law. Administative systems change but the people are the same.

When a Japanese boat ran aground in Taiwan ( circa 1875?) and a number of them beheaded by Taiwanese indeginous head- hunters, the Japanese asked for compensation from who ? You guessed it! The Qing, proving recognition of ( administrative) ownership. Even the then British diplomat commented on this.
