Ukrainian forces have used U.S.-made rocket launchers and tactical drones to destroy dozens of Russian targets and hold at bay Russia’s larger and more heavily equipped forces.
The picture I see say otherwise. The western media are untrustworthy as well. It is so difficult to believe any side to this conflict that could have been averted if not of the egos of Biden, Nato and Putin. I see all the killings, distruction and sufferings of the people of Ukriane and wonder what have happened If Biden and Nato hadn't taken the hard stance of underlooking and not negotiating with Putin, it was like Putin had to accept what he was told and shut up and Putin saying I am tough and I will show you I am not going to be dictated upon. The hardball Biden and Nato were playing is nothing but a bluff. Just pity the people of Ukriane for ending up being the victims of the clash of egos.

The Unification Church has been directly involved in many things much more serious than forcing people to 'buy expensive pots and seals'. I mean, even if we only keep it to Japan rather than the rest of the world, it has been implicated in aggressively extorting money and assets from its followers.
The donation of money is not limited only to the Moonies, all the other Japanese Sects and religious groups are doing same may be less aggressively. There is that religious group with properties in prime positions all over the country, where do you think the money comes from for those properties ? it is from donations and sales of expensive temples some costing 7 million yen and average salary men are forced to buy them and pay in installments, I won't be surprised that some of the land on which some properties are sitting are donations, how about the sale of names for millions when one dies. I am afraid the media will concentrate on the unification church since it is foreign and ignore the Japanese religious groups.

Japan warns of rising security threats in annual defense report
How about a white paper on improving the standard of living of the people
and prevent people's livelihood sliding into poverty and third world standards.
How about spending more money and provide affordable comfortable housing with a real
living room for the low income earners not the expensively priced 2 or 3DKs with the so called
living room the size of a pantry in an average family home in the U.S.
Those at the top know how to keep us the plebs in a state of fright while they plunder our taxes.

correct me if im wrong but didnt the BOJ exclude volatile items like oil and food in their inflation calculations!?
Yes they did because it will drive up the numbers and they won't be able
to boast having the lowest inflation among OECD countries. This pattern is evident
with unemployment data, Covid numbers and a large number of other data.
I have made it as a rule of thumb to take the numbers with a bag of salt.

"There are voices within society and the opposition parties that are against holding a state funeral," Masamichi Tanaka, head of the civic group's secretariat, said during a press conference in Tokyo. "It should be discussed in parliament."
Discussing it in the diet will be more waste of taxpayer's money, looks like Mr. Masamichi Tanaka
has not been following the stong arm tactics the LDP has been using to prevent deliberation and
pass controversial laws using their overwhelming majority. There are far more pressing issues

Some years from now rhe covid vaccines will be exposed as the biggest scam to
have ever been perpetrate by a few on the entire world. I took 2 shots last year and
I am not taking any boaster shots and continue with precaution of wearing mask when
out in a crowd and refrain from touching objects when. out and disinfect at every opportunity
and wash hands thoroughly when back home.
The vaccines don't prevent any one from being infected yet it is still called vaccine, to continue with the scam they tell us the so called vaccine help reduce serious cases. Why isn't data correlating number of serious cases to the number vaccines taken to highlight the effectiveness of the vaccine in reducing serious cases.
Next, almost everyone is wearing mask, yet the number of infection is extremely high, is fair to infer
that mask wearing doesn't prevent the spread of the virus and more like the spread is mostly from contact rather than airborne. If it was really mostly through airborne the number of positives would exceed easily
exceed 500K nationwide.

Besides Sakhalin 2, Japan also invests in the Sakhalin 1 project, with Sakhalin Oil and Gas Development Co -- a Japanese consortium involving the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, trading houses Itochu Corp and Marubeni Corp and others -- holding a 30 percent stake.
Interesting to know, what percentage does the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (gov't) owns in the 30 percent and also the conditions and clauses.
Well, that is asking the impossible as we all know real journalism is extinct here.

Roughly half of Japanese companies think the government should take more steps to curb the impact of soaring prices as they bear the brunt of higher energy and material costs, partly due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine and a weaker yen, according to a recent survey by a credit research firm.
An article that says nothing about the orientation of the companies, whether import or export oriented.
It is common sense that if the orientation is 50-50 the outcome will be half as indicated in the article but
in reality the non export reliant companies far outnumber the export related company so the outcome in
the article is skewed deliberately.

Before the election they were talking about just above 2%, now suddenly its 10!
Servant media talking about bananas rising prices instead of really investigating and reporting in a timely manner the whole picture!
Take into consideration the reduction in sizes or length of many stuff which in effect is price increase
in disguise and the real increase is far higher than what is quoted in this article.

A friend of mine was hit with a 10M JPY penalty for the same thing, which she was forced to sign when she was 14. Now she is over 20 but still paying off that debt because there was a 10% / month interest on it. There's nothing the police or the Japanese justice system willing to help with those kind of cases.
Unbelievable, common sense not so common. How can everybody around be so dumb

countries that took the pandemic seriously Japan Australia NZ, Singapore Korea etc
all average around 240~400 deaths per million. Sweden 1800/million. you can say whatever you want, but it really sucks when the actual statistics prove you wrong and hurt your feelings
Missing from those statistics are those that died of poverty, suicide due to debt, business
failure etc resulting from the tough measures or lack of financial relief. What difference does it make dying
from covid or from poverty. At the going rate more people will die from poverty than from Covid-19.

The government, the LDP, his faction and the numerous companies that benefited from Abe's
rein couldn't honor him by flying his remains from Osaka to Tokyo. Instead they allowed the
grieving Mrs Abe to endure 12 hours driving the corpse to Tokyo from Nara without any police
escort. 12 hours sitting there just with the driver, no conversation, nobody to console her, how agonizing.
