No. Winter is on the horizon.

By this point the number of infections is pretty much irrelevant. Where can we get the data on the number of fully vaccinated people contracting the virus? Is Japan also refusing to release that data?

Two dozen San Diego students and their families who traveled to Afghanistan this summer are now stranded in the country.

If they are of fighting age, being students is just a cover story. The Taliban should arrest them.

It is time for the Great Red Dragon from the East..

Look at Africa. Dominated by Westen Europe and then USA for 150 years + until recently. During that time, again and again, never ending wars, coups, famines and always, shocking poverty.

Over the last decade or so China has moved in taking the place of USA. Has resulted in peace, growing prosperity, a middle class, greatly increased life expectency.....

But according to the 'free press' and the average moron, China is doing bad things in Africa.

You clearly don’t understand the response that would evoke from the hostile invaders.

Are they going to nuke Kabul? Wouldn't surprise me but that won't save the occupiers still there on September 1st.

The vaccine has proven to be highly effective against COVID among more than 320,000 subjects who had received the vaccine based on the data collected by July 30, 2021.

The data also indicates a high safety profile of ##### with no serious adverse events associated with vaccination; no deaths related to the vaccination; no cerebral vein thrombosis (CVT) cases after vaccination; no Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) cases after vaccination; no capillary leak syndrome cases after vaccination; and no cases of myocarditis or pericarditis reported. The statement said

Where can we get such a vaccine??

It isn't great but apparently I read the radioactivity being released only has a half-life of 3 days. So if the marine products are not consumed for 3 days after being caught, shouldn't be a problem......... If they are telling the truth.

The Taliban should make it clear that trying to sneak any Americans the previous occupiers left behind is absolutely unacceptable. They have to be thoughly interrogated to find out which were combatants, secret police and occupation administrators.

Frankly speaking, off the top of my head, only medical personel who were treating locals (not the invaders) and educators in math and science should go free.

Posted in: Half of Japan's population has received at least 1 dose of COVID-19 vaccine See in context

However, these are the results of a trial on 320,000

Is that too small a sample size to make a determination?

Peer teviwed journals like the one's which signed off on Pfizer and Moderna vaccines being 95% effective for at least 2 years? No thanks. If these wretched criminals in government would stand up to the Ameican regime and import safe and effective vaccines, I'd take this latest Russian one without waiting for peer reviewed scientific journals.

Vaccination is about limiting symptoms and staying out the hospital.

Say what? Since when has that bern the case? Until now vaccination has always been about preventing infection.

Posted in: Half of Japan's population has received at least 1 dose of COVID-19 vaccine See in context

Except, everyone in the US/UK who wanted the vaccine got it at least 6 months ago

Yet, they are seeing record infections and it's summer. In a several weeks it's likely they, vaccinated and unvaccinated alike will be dropping like flies.

I know the CDC refuses to release any data on so-called breakthrough infections, hospitalizations and deaths but out of Minnesota they reported over the last week, 21% of covid deaths were among the fully vaccinated. They presented this as a good thing and why everyone should get vaccinated. How bad do the mRNA vaccines have to be?

Posted in: Half of Japan's population has received at least 1 dose of COVID-19 vaccine See in context

Half have recieved at least one dose but still, day after day more record infections. The sad this is, insofar as Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, this is a par for the course.

Russia is a bully, it doesn't have the strength to take on a country its own size.

Which country is the size of Russia? Can USA take on Russia? Maybe reporpose the guys who ran for their lives from the Taliban. Forget about the 10000+ left behind.

Russia aggressive. Took back Crimea by force killing thousands of Ukrainians. Less then 10 years ago.

When Russia organizes a democratic vote, it's aggression. When NATO launches terror bombing of civilian targets in Serbia in order to pry Kosovo from Serbia and install the largest offshore USA military base there, it's "freedom and democracy".

Russia is a pathetic bully, always taking on weaker countries.

Unlike USA....... We all know USA has fought the largest wars against the most formidable opponents. Not as if USA would jump into a war right at the end, when the enemy was hopelessly decimated after 3 years of unparalleled battles elsewhere and then claim to have won that war.

It's really baffling to me, as a non-American.

How many 'breakthrough infections' is Ireland recording recently? Do they refuse to release that information as the CDC does?

It's strange. If the vaccines are as good as they say, surely releasing the data would reassure those of us who are skeptical.

The indestructable fact is they are emergency vaccines only approved for emergency use.

You still got 30% chance of dying, so good luck with your theory. It's so much easier to get vaccinated and avoid all this in the first place!

Dud vaccines by definition don't work.

No, it's not Saigon... That was a more organized force heavily backed/armed by China.

North Vietnam and China famously had a very poor relationship. The Soviet trainloads of weapons, medicine, food and etc usually decreased by half on their trips from through China to North Vietnam.

The world should just let the Afghans live the way most of them want

No indication the majority want to wallow in backwardness. That's why the majority hated the occupiers and their lackeys in government.

We all know the imperialist powers will do almost anything and support any regime to stop a popular uprising of the Afghan people against capitalism.

Imagine if Bush 2 had taken the offer. How many lives and how much money would have been saved?

You honestly believe the invasion was about Bin Laden rather that old-fashioned imperialism? The imperialists in turn copped a good old-fashioned blood-letting.

"Intelligence Chiefs Say China, Russia Are Biggest Threats To U.S."

If intelligence chiefs say it, it must be true. Not as if secret police lie.

China has consistently charged foreigners for espionage without showing any proof of having a transparent legal process.

Julien Assange would probably agree that China is the only country which locks up foreigners for dubious reasons.

Luckily Edward Snowden was able to escape to Russia before tyrannical powers could get their grubby hands on him.

The Allies usually refers to the western allies. At least in Germany and eastern Europe. If you are including the Soviet Union which bore the overwhelming burden in defeating the Axis, your statement would be correct.
