Posted in: G20 declaration deplores Russian aggression against Ukraine See in context

The world's only nuclear terrorist so far was President Truman, a US Democrat.

And another unconfortable fact is that the only reason for the existence of Nato was threatening the Sowjets and is now threatening Russia!

Posted in: Japan vows to work for 'more resilient' African economies See in context

If I as a South African could express a wish, it would be building nuclear power stations the Japanese way. Without sufficient energy, Africans will never be able to pay off debts. Making money starts with being able to use tools and these tools need to be plugged in in a reliable electricity grid. If the world asks us to stop burning coal and gas, we should replace coal and gas fired power stations with useful technology!

I will visit Japan again only if I have no trouble at the borders. I had a very good time in Osaka, Kyoto and Nara and I want to thank the Japanese for their hospitality.

I am stunned as a South African. What happened that countries in Europe, and Japan, adopted energy policies I thought were an African problem?

Face the facts, free people take a vaccine or not and travel to a foreign country or not according to their personal wishes and desires. I certainly respect the Government of Japan, but I hope the Government is respecting me too with my wish to skip that vaccines and see the ancient temples in Kyoto and Nara, eat Japanese food and drink sake. If Japan wants to challenge leaders like Xi, Putin and Kim, the only way to do so is by respecting my choices as an unimportant dweller in this world! I saved a half million yen in cash and I hope I can soon spend it as I like!

Switzerland lifted all restrictions and there was no problem. I think Governments should stop bullying the people, whoever wants the vaccine can get it.

Free countries allow people to be free!

and you tell us that such a research laboratory in Ukraine funded by the US is no problem? Seriously?

Should be fine. The US funds many labs across the world. And, BTW, most of these facilities were set up in the Soviet era.

Prof. Luc Montagnier, a nobel laureate for discovering a virus, told us something else.

And ask the people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki what could happen when the US peacefully researches nuclear energy!

Fact is that there is a constitutional right of a baby to life. A constitutional right to abortion is a leftist pipe dream which does not exist.

Russia will achieve the goals. Don't get fooled by Nato propaganda.

We witness now the end of western imperialism, the music of the future is BRICS. China, India and Russia have sufficient nukes to strike back at the US and UK if necessary.

And I, from South Africa, think that Japan should be more active and tell these western imperialists that a strike with a nuke is not funny.

Gorbachev did the right thing and set Eastern Europe free. Nato should have been disbanded back then. But no, they continued to threaten Russia and expanded to the east. And now, Ukraine pays the price for flirting with Nato.

There is a choice now, either treat Russia with respect or start a war and face 6000 nukes!

I would love to visit Japan again to see more arts and culture. I still have the half million yen I bought before my flight was cancelled.

Posted in: Three decades ago, world was told to 'act now' on climate See in context

The climate change theories have one goal, depriving a large number of people of a modern life and human rights. Did you know that about 6 million people, according to the WHO, die annually in developping countries because of inadequate energy supply? And no, those mainly subsaharan Africans do not die from climate change and they are dying right now!

Posted in: Russia to halt peace treaty talks with Japan over sanctions See in context

War is always ugly, but supporting Ukraine and sanctioning Russia is not based on a objective assessment of the facts. Nato, the EU, the US and a criminal elite in Ukraine have provoked the military adventure of Russia! It is simply not a good idea to steal Russian gas and bribe Hunter Biden with a part of the stolen money to get protection of the US Government! And it is unfair to label President Putin as a war criminal without saying that the then senator Biden approved the US war crimes in Iraq and Serbia! Apply at least the same standarts, if Putin is a war criminal, Biden is a war criminal too!

"Surprisingly, not surprisingly, there are not many apologies to all the people who contracted cancer after working in Fukushima following the massive earthquake."

It is hard to see why the Government was negligent causing an earthquake in Fukushima.

Japan could contribute to a solution by stopping to fund the UNRWA. As long organisations like Hamas get money, they will use it for terrorism.

Posted in: Containing virus in Tokyo prerequisite for hosting Olympics: Koike See in context

I think it would be wise to use the opportunity to ask the Chinese Government to recognize the Senkaku islands to be Japanese territory before the Olympics starts. And if the Chinese Government fails to sign up for this request, just deny the visas for the Chinese delegation. I am sure that is the kind of language the Chinese communist bullies understand!

Don't give an inch to the communist bullies in China.

Posted in: Abe in dilemma as coronavirus response could cut both ways See in context

Closing the border will not really help, the virus is already in Japan.

I had to make a decision, based on known facts, before coming for a holiday in Japan last week. And the facts are, that the risk contracting the virus remains the same regardless if I cancel my trip and remain in Switzerland or if I fly to Japan and have a good time.

Therefore, washing the hands regularly and avoid crowded places is the only solution to mitigate the risks.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of people worldwide abusing the virus for their hidden agenda, they will certainly not help to improve anything but bankrupt many businesses including hotels, airlines and restaurants.

I think Mr. Abe is right to refuse to enter the panic mode.

I had a great time in Japan and I am healthy and happy now.
