Stupidity while driving is bad enough but to drive off and leave your victims to die in horrific circumstances is as garypen said, unforgivable.

If there is sufficient demand other carriers will snap up the slots.

Posted in: Paralympics chief says Tokyo hotels 'biggest concern' See in context

i am surprised that Japanese society has such an archaic attitude in the 21st. century. Here's hoping the Paralympics begin a fundamental change, as with a rapidly ageing population they will need it as sadly old age can for many bring increasing disability.

Typical terror tactics from an oppressive dictatorship. They terrorised the staff of Cathay Pacific and now they are seeking to terrorise any one working for a foreign embassy or consulate. Secret arrest and imprissonment without trial, what else would you expect from the CCP gangsters who run the unfortunate country.

Project Fear at work again!

This really is a load of biased, inaccurate claptrap, just what you would expect from the mandarins of the Civil Service.

No need to drag Koo Stark in to this, she has always behaved with real dignity.

Randy Andy certainly has some serious questions to answer, which his statement has nowhere near addressed.

Lulldapull, while I am no Trump supporter or blindly pro USA, your assessment of Iran’s military capability is delusional.

The UK has and had a military presence in the gulf long before this, it’s purpose is not aggressive but supportive of allies and freedom of navigation and for such the ships there are sufficient. It’s not a war fighting force.

As it is under the dictatorship of the CCP it never can be a better place. They may starve HK and drag it down to the same level but that is a very different beast.

Posted in: Chinese aircraft used Japanese ships as targets in East China Sea drill: gov't See in context

Even when 17 Russian aircraft mobbed HMS Duncan in the Black Sea last year they were not so stupid as to make or simulate an attack run.

Whether this was sanctioned or not depends on how undisciplined you think the Chinese forces are. Either way it is unprecedented and concerning given the surrounding circumstances.

That Japans military didn’t want to give away their abilities has some reason to it, but now it is out in the open perhaps a behind closed doors but stronger diplomatic response is called for. Not all diplomacy is best carried out with a megaphone.

As a major country, Japan is more likely to have representation in the countries so why are the diplomatic service and the Japanese Olympic committee not working together in those countries to facilitate this initiative?

Ruddy computer, it should be socio/political.

Posted in: Danish MPs ridicule idea of Trump buying Greenland See in context

Historically not so far out an idea. Louisiana purchase and Alaska spring immediately to mind but the current sociopath/political climate wouldn’t accept the concept of selling sovereign territories let alone democratic populations. US strategic considerations and the economic resources that will become accessible as global warming progresses make it a cynical but rational proposition. Not that anyone is going to agree to it.

well done the Emperor for carrying on the approach of his father, he is to be commended in his courage and sensitivity.

As to Abe’s comments and the interviewee, I commend the many excellent rebuttals written above!

Garypen, so long as the rail doesn’t wash any seeds or plants out of the soil, it will do them good. Provided you get some sun after you may get a bumper crop! Silver lining?

From the forecasts and reports I have seen it looks like this will be pretty horrible as it doesn’t seem at the moment to be losing power.

Obviously a purge aimed at ideological purity in the education system. Dictatorships don’t like the obedient worker drones being exposed to virulent diseases like critical thinking, individual liberty, human rights, or heaven forfend horrible infections like democracy and the rule of law!

It is much easier to manipulate a carefully crafted jingoistic, nationalistic and ideological brainwashed populace if they are never permitted to see any different viewpoint.

We all know the CCP is an oppressive dictatorship; the one thing such can never countenance is opposition or even the semblance of democracy as that utterly undermines their pretence of legitimacy.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic construction worker dies of suspected heatstroke See in context

Wonder how many international athletes will refuse to compete due to the heat and danger to their health, or shall we run a book on how many die in the heat? The IOC are so greedy rather than stand up to the media they grab the money with both hands.

Best to avoid the sun during the hottest part of the day, not just heat stroke but skin cancer (nasty). As Commanteer said tea and coffee are not a problem though water is the best solution. Sports drinks do not hydrate you any better than water, and all fruit juice is full of sugar.

Posted in: Pentagon chief urges Japan to consider joining Strait of Hormuz coalition; raps China See in context

Hello kitty, no you are wrong, they were enforcing EU sanctions. (and then the EU refused to back them up, but what else can you expect) the US had nothing to do with it. As I said, internationally and UN backed not just local desire to close an international trade route and strangle their gulf neighbours.

Posted in: Pentagon chief urges Japan to consider joining Strait of Hormuz coalition; raps China See in context

The mad mullahs of Tehran are the root cause of tension in this case. There is no excuse for seizing ships in international waters without legal basis. They are not enforcing an international agreement they are seeking to extend their political/military control over the internationally important choke point in the sea ways to advance their ideology and regional power.

The international community needs to stand up to these bullies.

The EU has innumerable internal problems, not least a failed currency that has so many cracks papered over it is a miracle os spin it still exists. A deeply anti-democratic elite and wholly unrepresentative structures that progressively are driving people across Europe in to the arms of extreme or populist parties to name but two.

A tragedy blah blah blah, my sympathy with etc. We will hear mouthed by many but of course no concrete action! Until and unless the US population chooses to do something about this scourge the comments of the rest of the world (my self and the other posters on this site included) will mean nothing. So sit back and watch the tragedies unfold.

Another 20 slaughtered in El Paso today according to a breaking news alert on the BBC.
