Priority given to the Olympics rather than assisting the injured. What gave this driver the impression that he was all mighty and above the law? The Olympics perhaps?

So what? Emergency protocols based on last year's virus while there are so many more virulent mutations. It's not even playing catch up, the government is stuck at square one while the virus continues to out-pace Suga, Nishimura, Kato, and the rest of the clown show.

Posted in: Suga says adequate measures in place to prevent virus cases spreading from Olympic athletes See in context

The delta was going to bite around this time and everyone knew it. People were out watching the torch relays, the Blue Impulse, the bike road races and elsewhere. Athletes' hometown gatherings to cheer on their sons and daughters in front of the TV are too frequent with cheering and no SD. A friend in Sendai said that there was a shuttle bus taking spectators from the parking area to the soccer stadium the other day and the bus was packed. These are the indirect consequences of having the games. How can anyone take Suga's measures seriously? The enemy has changed tactics and these guys are battling using last year's plan while celebrating gold medals. You think the ICU staff are cheering on the games? Good grief!

Posted in: Officials in Tokyo alarmed at lack of sense of crisis as virus cases hit record highs See in context

The writing was on the wall for awhile. Countries with more vaccine percentage than Japan are experiencing an increase so what made Japan think that they would be special? The government is using last year's control protocols for a virus that has since gone through several variations and is way behind the game. But then hey, let's all celebrate the gold medals as the ICUs fill up. We knew it was coming to this so now while all the world's press is here in Tokyo, they can see first hand what is going on here.

What was one the phrases often touted, "athletes first?" Y'all are a lucky that spectators have been banned, there would have been tourists collapsing all over Tokyo. Abe and the JOC bidding committee lied about the ideal conditions. Now all you need is an earthquake.

Symbolism is good but substance is better. Just look at all the people who were fired or resigned because they didn't understand nor cared about an inclusive culture. And what of the ethnic Koreans who live in Japan? Still a long ways to go Japan.

Posted in: China says WHO plan to audit labs in COVID origins probe 'arrogant' See in context

Tedros will back off, and say, "I tried." He wants to cover his tracks because he didn't shut down all Chinese international travel before the 2020 lunar new year. I think he's also coming to the realization that the most recent WHO fact finding trip orchestrated by the CCP turned up zilch.

Posted in: Sponsors of Tokyo's unpopular Olympics face branding dilemma See in context

It's simple, the big donors want to have it both ways. They could have spoken up earlier and pulled all advertisments and funding but they didn't. Now with this PR dilemma, they're going to play the CSR card, no hoorah from me, totally disgusting.

Posted in: WHO leader says virus risk inevitable at Tokyo Olympics See in context

Aah, yes the word inevitable. Similar to when you deferred to China instead of shutting down all international travel during the lunar new year in 2020. It was inevitable that the virus would spread. Now please get off the international stage and let someone with competence take the helm.

Posted in: Under-fire Olympic composer steps down over past bullying See in context

@Chizuko, if you've been following the story, it's because in a 1994/1995 interview when he was an adult, he admitted to the bullying and wasn't repentant at all, and just laughingly offered an apology. He bullied students who were mentally disabled and it lasted years from elementary school through high school. This is the Olympics / Paralympics; note that last word. That's why.

Bullied someone that has a disability. Hmmm....and then just publishes a statement, it's so convenient and easy now. Just tweet or put it on Facebook and don't have to face the crowd and make a public apology. He's still the coward I guess.

"Beacon of hope?" You forgot "safe and secure" too. Nothing but a photo op, hope you go to the irradiated zone in Fukushima and tout the same there; after all this was supposed to be the Recovery Olympics.

Japanese company at its best. Komori should be remembered along with Matsushita, Honda, and Morita, business leaders with foresight and who lived the word innovation.

Posted in: Japan backs off on forecast of 30 gold medals at Tokyo Olympics See in context

While people are dying and getting sick all you can talk about are the number of medals? "...it is unavoidable." This seems to be the fatalistic mentality of all these morons. Please count your medals and celebrate while the hospital staff work endless hours trying to control your wonderful peace enhancing event.

The only reason why Kato said what he did is because the imperial household has taken the side of the people. Me thinks Kato has stuck his foot in his mouth big time.

Posted in: Tokyo Governor Koike hospitalized due to fatigue See in context

Before slinging dirt on her, remember, she inherited this problem. Can you imagine what it would have been like if it was Masuzoe, Inose or god forbid Ishihara? These games are taking its toll on many people like the spouse of one of the posters here but their numbers will never be known. After its all said and done. The IOC and the government will slap each other on the back even if it's a catastrophic disaster. It's disgusting and nauseating. The only thing we can hope for now is mitigation, because these games are going to happen. Perhaps Koike will finally come out about cancellation while she has time to reflect.
