Posted in: Iran's president, foreign minister and others found dead at helicopter crash site See in context

Now, now, we don’t know that the crash wasn’t simply an accident. Helicopters are the second-most-dangerous form of air travel after those weird Ospreys that the U.S. Marines insist on trying to use. But the death of a high-ranking national leader coming so soon after the failed assassination of the Slovak Prime Minister looks more than a little suspicious.

A lot of people are assuming that Israel was responsible, but it’s premature to try assigning any responsibility at this point. I, personally, tend to doubt it, especially since Iran has demonstrated its ability to hit precision targets in Israel, so I find it hard to imagine Netanyahu giving any orders that would make him look like a legitimate target for reprisal in the world’s eyes.

If it was an assassination and not an accident, I think it’s much more likely the act of neoclowns not only have long sought an active war between Iran and the USA and also need an excuse to extricate themselves from a losing situation in Ukraine.

Posted in: Iran launches retaliatory attack on Israel with hundreds of drones, missiles See in context

The European Union, Britain, France, Mexico, Czechia, Denmark, Norway and the Netherlands all condemned Iran's attack.

Funny how they weren't quite so condemnatory in their response to Israel's slaughter of the Palestinians in Gaza or attack on Iran's embassy in Damascus. What a crock of hypocritical bs

Ha, just came back from an ecumenical conference in Paris, and the amount of well-heeled Japanese tourists I saw there spending large amounts of money like it was still 1989 was incredible. There are still many Japanese who are doing very well, thank you.

And yes, they were JAPANESE tourists.

But at least you're not insane

Henry Kissinger

How I'm missing yer

And wishing you were here"

Typically vague, weasel words by the J-Gov. They are a satrapy of the US, but want special treatment for their companies and need the region's oil and gas. Meanwhile the IDF kills thousands of civilians indiscriminately and all Japan can do is check with DC first to see how they should react to that outrage. Pathetic people.

I’m sure the Japanese seafood industry appreciates the gesture, but one can’t help but ask two questions:

Why hasn’t the USA been buying Japanese seafood to supply its troops occupying Japan until now?

How, exactly, is replacing less than 1/100,000th of the lost business, or .001 percent, going to keep the Japanese seafood industry solvent?

As with seafood, so with artillery shells…

His greatest moments were taking Australia to the RWC final in 2003 and England to the final in 2019, where on both occasions his teams beat the All Blacks at the semi-final stage. But yeah, it really feels like he is past his use by date.
