The man is a narcissist has no empathy will quash any decent that doesn’t support his view. it’s a matter of record that although Australia is spending more under his watch new helicopters now prove useless, submarine contracts an international mess. Ship building programs in a state of confusion. He is more of a threat to Australian security than some other country. I hope he stays in opposition as in power he would be a disaster.

Posted in: Russia takes steps to bolster army, tighten grip on Ukraine See in context

It’s now getting to a war of attrition and I sadly doubt Ukrainian have the depth to resist even with western technology. I hope they do but the losses on both sides are catastrophic. It’s Russia that has as usual endless reserves and are willing to throw teenager’s into it. Also an attitude that doesn’t care about losses. Ukrainian are more western in thinking but for Russians that’s a weekness. Ukrainians need boots on the ground from a allied country but who is willing to do that?

Ha the Russians are now sending T-62 tanks out of storage. That’s going to help? The Ukrainians are getting stretched so what next?

it’s such a disaster an unnecessarily stupid one from Russia.

‘if there was an adult in the room I’m sure they would say “time out” Russia go back to your home, Ukrainian avoid all contact with Russia. Problem solved. But sadly no adult in the room.

That is in worst case scenario? A whole lot of 0000s missing from that one. A panel of experts really? When ever has a Japanese Government panel of experts been right? “So who would have expected such a huge tsunami, at sea level????? ” A disaster with condominiums toppling, bridges collapsing gas lines broken, fires, trains not working power out. 6100? It might be their immediate family they are talking about.

Does that mean 14 people with Japanese heritage? Or 21? It really does not matter at the moment as 200 people at lest are going to be involved in shepherding them from the bus to the hotel. One cough and it’s a hotel room.

Yep, change causes confusion, then inevitably a fuse failure in someone’s head, best to avoid that.

Posted in: Ukraine: 200 bodies found in basement in Mariupol's ruins See in context

It seems to be an inter service rivalry going on, a few years ago the air defence branch shot down a civilian airliner with 250+, now the artillery branch responds with 200 buried alive. Just wait for the army branch to get in on it? You really have to love the Russian idea of no collateral damage.

I bet the argument “if the teacher was armed it could have been stopped” will pop up. Or if the children had their own guns never would have happened?

it’s a school not a war zone. What the hell happened to the American dream.?

So now all the council has to do is explain why they have systems in place that allowed this to happen. AND WHY THEY DIDNT GIVE ¥200,000 in the beginning to each household as the obviously could afford.

China, want proof that China is a threat?

if you can’t be bothered it’s a trove of hacked police files from China

it’s actions are woefully below those of any democratic counties.

And the Chinese Government wants everyone to be joyous under their rule. Just try it? Come on! Try it?

Posted in: Ukraine's 2nd largest city Kharkiv digs in against new Russian assault See in context

Would be interesting to hear of the Ukrainian losses? I know approximately the Russian losses but nothing about Ukrainian and it can’t be all one way? The Ukrainian army play their cards close to their chest a wise move. I’m sure the footage of civilians being trained with wooden guns at the beginning was purposefully done as misinformation. And the Russian intelligence services lapped it up. That stupid Russian senator claiming that it’s slow going because the Ukrainians are trained just like us (Russia) overlooks western training in tactics since 2014. If the Russians push forward it invariably seems to be into a prepared trap.

Don’t get too upset it’s just a show of unity not as dramatic as others may see it. But as it’s a show against them (Russians) I get that their feelings are hurt. After all attacking your neighbour is totally acceptable. That’s why Canada and Mexico are moving troops to their borders.

Posted in: Tokyo medical school ordered to pay 13 women over exam rigging See in context

Women mature earlier than men and therefore they do better at college entrance exams. Some kind of adjustment can be justified at medical schools 

‘That has to be one of the most counter productive arguments I’ve ever seen, they are better and should be hobbled to allow less evolved males to get through? Oh my god.

He is the President of the United States, should something happen while in Japan that’s a really big thing. So an outer ring of security is warranted. As much as I disparage J cops, they can swamp an area with personal.

Seems the actual population of functional workers, even those collecting grass is shrinking, that’s not good on an economy based on grass Intake. The stupidity of North Kora is just not making sense in 2022. And to top it off the fattest person in the country is the Dear Leader. He eats a lot of grass.

This, they are absolutely the most amazing heroes of resistance in the last 70 years, yes Russia will kill them but they died on their feet not on their knees, or stumps. Not Nazis most are just fighting for their country. In a really amazing heroically time.
