Posted in: Israeli PM welcomes expansion of West Bank settlements See in context

By a continuous campaign of terrorist attacks since 1948 the Palestinians have ensured there can be no peace. Had they lived in peace with Israel by now the problem would have gone away and they would all be a lot better off but instead by the violence encouraged by their self serving so called leaders they have so poisoned the well that a peaceful settlement is all but impossible to envisage.

Having thrice sought to slaughter the people and wipe their state from the map, a desire to ensure their security is understandable.

If he hadn’t insisted on immediate removal the pen pushers of the civil service would have procrastinated and ensured it never happened as they did before.

A good effort to try and break the link to the “imperial” presidency of the past.

All policy in NK flows from the top, so now it has all gone wrong fat boy is resorting to the usual ploy of dictators and blaming everyone else for his own failings.

I suspect the disease has been present and possibly wide spread but without testing it was kept quiet. I note the emphasis in getting medication in to the capital city, the benighted peasantry in the provinces don’t count, so if it has now spread to the city and endangering the elite (thus undermining his authority and grip on power) it must be acknowledged and efforts taken to deal with it.

Posted in: Japan urges China to 'play responsible role' on Ukraine crisis See in context

There is an interesting idea going the rounds of various knowledgeable parties that China’s stance is calculated, giving russia initial encouragement and promises of support which it is now rowing back on as always intended so that russia becomes militarily less of a threat and however it turns out in Ukraine (China doesn’t actually care) russia now isolated from the west who otherwise would have supported it against any encroachment by China in the east, will become dependant on China militarily (for the high tech it can’t make itself or now import from the west) and economically as its economy implodes, thus ensuring russia is on side but very much as a junior partner while China gains access to the resources if Siberia at a cheap price as a concession for their help and support without the need to use military force to gain what they lost in the 19th century.

The USA has always had its isolationists, which was impractical in the 19th century and even more so today. This smacks more of petty party point scoring than any purported principled stand.

The choice is theirs, they are welcome. Says a lot about russia under the kleptocratic dwarf in the kremlin that they feel the need to abandon 200 years of neutrality.

Erdogan trying to extort concessions again. Sweden and Finland both fulfil the criteria for membership better than Turkey these days.

Yes just like every technological advance, and also create new opportunities and jobs. Though I agree it is not clear how quickly it will happen and there are a number of regulatory problems that will need sorting out.

That he was going to scarper was rather predictable, though apparently not to the Japanese authorities!

Having no knowledge of Japanese law I can not comment whether this is a criminal act but in the UK it would be and I suspect in most jurisdictions.

Posted in: China military body may be target of Japan counterstrike capability See in context

Agree this is a question to which an answer should not be given. If the counter strike capability comes in to play it is far too late to worry whether this would lead to full scale war with China.

Keep your potential opponent guessing and off balance.

Posted in: Japan says Sakhalin energy projects do not contradict Russia sanctions See in context

Keen to benefit from the protection and profit from the rules based system civilised countries are trying to maintain but will do nothing to support it if it is mildly inconvenient to the profits of its elites.

Japans dependence on russian fossil fuel is entirely down to the abysmal failure of foresight and policy of its government in failing to implement sustainable energy policies years ago.

Taiwan is already a sovereign, democratic country. The only reason it hasn’t been recognised internationally has been chinas bullying and bribery.

What China is doing internally is not a matter of sovereignty or territorial integrity (except in the case of the occupied country of Tibet, it is genocide.

Posted in: Finland's leaders call for NATO membership 'without delay' See in context


Czech Republic Hungary Poland Romania Slovakia Slovenia Estonia Latvia Lithuania Bulgaria Albania Croatia

all joined NATO because they had already endured russian oppression and didn't want any more of it preferring a free western lifestyle. Sweden and Finland already have it and would rather not lose it to russian interference which in the light of their illegal Ukrainian invasion has become a distinct danger therefor they are looking to those pther countries and peoples with like outlooks for support and protection which is what NATO' is, a mutual defence organisation.

Georgia and Ukraine as sovreign nations should never have been invaded by russia. They were not members of NATO but had they been russia would never have dared attack them

As to your spurious and unsuported claims of British and American dead and NATO involvement, pray submit valid, objective evidence for these propaganda claims?

Posted in: Finland's leaders call for NATO membership 'without delay' See in context

Olegek, russia because of its illegal and unjustified invasion of Ukraine is now perceived in both Sweden and Finland as a clear and present danger to their security so yes for once you are quite right it is about Finland’s security; their accession brought about by russia’s actions will be a total reversal of what the kleptocratic dwarf in the kremlin wanted and consequently a serious blow to russia.

No one intends to declare war, not even the blowhards in the kremlin for all their huffing and puffing, their army is too busy getting chewed up in Ukraine.

Posted in: Finland's leaders call for NATO membership 'without delay' See in context

Kyo, nope russia hasn’t invaded a NATO country, goes to prove it’s an effective deterrent. Ukraine wasn’t a member and Poo tin invaded them.

Tokyoliving, the only one threatening to start WW3 is the kleptocratic dwarf in the kremlin.

Ingvar, sadly for you Poo tin has managed to overturn the public support for neutrality in Finland and Sweden, their democratic governments are reflecting the public mood.

As russias military is progressively chewed up in Ukraine China is watching and waiting until they are too weakened to be a threat and then they will either walk in and “liberate”Siberia, much of which was ripped away from China in the 19th century or russia will be forced to give them unlimited access to its resources for their economic support. Poo tin has finally brought down the russian empire.

So typical, so depressing, so asinine.

so long as they keep their guns and insanity within their own borders they can go on slaughtering each other to their hearts content until they realise their folly.

The USA is far too dangerous for any rational person to endanger them selves by going there. Their gun fetish is such a shame as there is otherwise much that could be good in the country.

Posted in: Banning Russian LNG imports tough without supply alternatives: trade minister See in context

Nadrew, yep, become energy independent or at least much less dependant on imported energy, who would have thought! This should have been done long ago, Japan has huge natural energy resources untapped. With a little forward planning none of this would even be a consideration and Japan would be well on its way to meeting its climate change targets while making itself more secure rather than dependant on an untrustworthy country that it is technically still at war with and still illegally occupies some of its islands.

Add, the Solomons as a sovereign state can choose who they ally with but the more pertinent question is who in the islands will benefit from this change, the people who will now be entrapped in Chinas debt web, paying off loans they can not afford or the leadership elite who will prosper on the inflow of that debt?

Not a royalist but the alternative is worse, some clapped out politician or a wannabe trump? As our system does not allow them any real power, they reign but do not rule, they serve a useful function.

Posted in: Crucial NATO decisions expected in Finland, Sweden this week See in context

Neither nation sought to join NATO until Poo tin invaded Ukraine, now both are realising the security situation has changed fundamentally and as such now may well join. The very opposite of what Poo tin claimed he sought yet has brought about by his Ill judged actions.
