Agree with Gene. Gotta keep the communications going and regardless of the outcome, as long as it’s civil, it’s successful.

Americans have the choice between bad and worse.

True, but that’s still more than some countries have.

No, because these tiny countries don’t have the population size

I agree to a point. NZ at least would be a nightmare if it had a population as large as the US. Even a population the size of Australia would be chaotic for NZ. There would need to be massive legislative change in NZ to handle it. That said... it's not wrong to suggest the state of American politics right now is a political mess.

It's a bit of a misleading pic. It's almost impossible to see that Star Alliance plane as a Singapore Airlines aircraft except for the caption. Too easy to see the JAL plane.

Posted in: Japanese foreign minister retracts controversial childbirth remark See in context

It's very safe to assume that she was not talking about women who, due to some medical or physical condition, are unable to get pregnant.

She may not have meant that, but it's still an irresponsible comment that fails to acknowledge that point. It's also offensive to those that choose not to for any other reason. I agree, it has probably been taken out of context, but as Simon Foston suggested above, it's very difficult to imagine any acceptable context. The suggestion that women are not women unless they give birth is a stupid comment, period. The woman supposedly known for efforts to improve gender equality in a single comment ridicules those that choose not to when men are free to choose without anywhere near the same level of criticism.

Instead of criticism for not having children, foster an environment where people, both women and men, want to raise a family.

The "men" should as well!

Yes, absolutely. I didn’t mean to exclude them. Just woke up and angrily posted.

Such an offensive thing to say, especially to the thousands of women who are unable. This is Aso/Mori level stuff. The women of Japan should be able to expect better of their representatives in the government.

"This is their fault because they have shelled and continue to shell residential neighborhoods in border areas," Putin told reporters.

That’s what he says, but we all know it’s entirely Putin’s fault for invading Ukraine in the first place.

I actually didn’t say he was protecting anything. I never said he is good in any way. I just said him not answering is about as honest as he can be, and his family would likely be risked if he did otherwise. Ok, I didn’t need to say that last part, but do you think it isn’t true?

Sigh. John Lee is the Chief Executive of Hong Kong, Xi Jinping's handpicked poodle there. He replaced Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor in 2022.

I'm aware. That's my point. If he's actually honest about anything and talks about it, it would implicate himself and the Chinese, and risk the safety of his relatives in Hong Kong and in China. So not answering is as honest as he can be without doing those things.

When asked whether Hong Kong authorities had spent any resources to perform surveillance on individuals in Britain, including Hong Kong activists, Lee did not directly address the question.

Not answering is as honest as he can be without putting his relatives in China in danger.

Sorry Hawk. I basically repeated a lot of what you said.

Posted in: Do you think there should be permanent host cities for both the summer and winter Olympics? See in context

The facilities built for Athens '04 are in a wretched, disused state. Wild dogs have apparently taken over the stadium precinct. I doubt the Greek (or Norwegian) taxpayer want to fund permanent Olympics - nor have their capital cities overrun for a month every 4 years.

I disagree. One of the issues with the Olympics is the development of areas in cities that will often never use the facilities for anything other than the Olympics again. Having the Olympics permanently hosted in one place all but ensures the facilities continued usage. I think it’s a great idea.

Regarding having cities overrun every four years… I’d rather that than have thousands of people forcibly displaced like what has happened in some countries in order to host the Olympics.

in the lead up to Tokyo I was completely put off the Olympics by the organization itself, but if they’re going to insist on holding it, a single country doing it would solve at least some of the issues.

Yeah I don’t know why this one in particular. I’d guess one of the main reasons is Serkis himself pushing to do it. Getting Jackson, Walsh and Boyens behind him makes me optimistic about it.

Here’s another film franchise that’s been done to death, along with Star Wars and the Marvel ‘world.’

Has it though? A trilogy based on one book, and a trilogy based on its predecessor (Ok, it didn’t really need a trilogy)? The Amazon series which some people hate, you might consider taking it too far, and fair enough, but overall I wouldn’t say it’s “done to death”.

It is not, numbers tell the story very clearly. How many soldiers fought and died on the Eastern front, both Soviet and German? How many Soviet civilians perished at the hand of the Nazis? Compare those numbers against others who fought against Germany.

People here have been saying WWII, not Germany. WWII was fought not only against Germany. We’ll never know if things would have been different had America not joined. Yes against Germany, the Soviets lost far more than any other country.

The parade has a 70 year old history, it was not initiated this year.

No kidding. I never said otherwise. However under the current regime it is nothing more than a facade of fascist Russian propaganda

There is no denying Russia did the lion share of fighting and sacrifices in WW2.

The war was not won by any one country alone. Russia may very well have done more against the Germans. As has been alluded to here already they also helped Germany’s rise. America might not have done as much against Hitler, but they did a whole lot more in the pacific than Russia did. Suggesting that Russia did more than anyone else is disingenuous. Every country that fought against fascist Germany suffered and none of it should be minimized.

Putin stating a fact about certain western policies fuelling conflicts and trying to contain other countries has nothing to do with some posters calling 70 year old Victory day parade fascist and therefore insulting the memory of those who died fighting the Nazis ( it does ).

Because Putin is using the parade as a platform to offend the nations who fought side by side with the Soviet Union has everything to do with it, calling out the parade, which currently is a facade of Russian propaganda, does not insult those who died fighting the Nazis.

Soviets and the Allies fought the Nazi scourge side by side and on the anniversary of their victory their memory should not be insulted by such trash talk.

When you've got the Russian president making statements about

He accused the West of “fueling regional conflicts, inter-ethnic and inter-religious strife and trying to contain sovereign and independent centers of global development.”

then crying about comments of the current Russian leadership and it's supporters being fascist because it insults the memory of those who fought side by side (it doesn't) is actually really hypocritical.

From defeating a force of evil to becoming one while still celebrating defeating the aforementioned force of evil. It’s amazing what an imperialistic ego will do for a nation.
