If people all get vaccinated it will prevent the appearance of new variants and indeed prove to be the 'silver bullet' against Covid-19, but if people selfishly refuse to get vaccinated, it will drag on for many years to come.

No, the problem is the sudden rush by the police to shoot people when their own lives are not in danger.

Killing somebody for driving off! And then a sheriff's deputy in body armor points a large gun at somebody holding a rock? What a sick country.

I was talking to a policeman one time and asked him how often he practiced with his pistol and he replied that they had a shooting lesson at police school but not afterward. I therefore imagine it would be difficult to manage to hit somebody in the leg.

I noticed that the background radiation had increased to 0.18 μSv here in Gunma this morning. I do not know if this is a result of the earthquake, but the last one did crack the containment vessel at the power station. Just saying.

How about Biden goes head-to-head in a live debate with Putin?
The Joe Biden administration has rebuffed an open invitation from Russian President Vladimir Putin to hold a live public debate, with the White House press secretary explaining that the POTUS is “quite busy” with other things.

As these dust storms have been occurring since before China's industrialization it would seem pretty clear that they are not related to a recent general decline in air quality.

"America would certainly destroy China. No problem."
America cannot even manage to subdue poor countries like Iraq or Afghanistan so how do you propose they would be able to destroy China without resorting to nukes, and if they did that the whole world would be destroyed.

It is a pity that the moneys is not used only to rebuild Fukushima instead of refitting factory ships for whaling or building roads in Okinawa.

If countries have to pay to have US troops on their soil, then surely the US troops should be treated as mercenaries under local command.

I have not read the paper myself, but I wonder if he also claims that the European prisoners of war who were forced into sex slavery by the Japanese military did so voluntarily. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Ruff_O%27Herne

The problem is that China and Taiwan also claim the islands that should have been returned to China after the war, but which the US decided to hold on to for bombing practice. When China and Japan normalized relations in 1972, they agreed to shelve the question of ownership of the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands and everything went smoothly until the governor of Tokyo unilaterally decided that they were Japanese. So it could be equally argued that it would be perfectly acceptable for China to defend her sovereign territory against uninvited foreign arrivals.

In the article it says that "Iran began breaching the deal in 2019" as if Iran was somehow in the wrong. The deal stopped when the US unilaterally pulled out and imposed sanctions on Iran. The US should also be made to recompense Iran for the over one million barrels of fuel it stole from Iran.

Then why bother to give them sentences? Why not just lock people up indefinitely without a trial like the Americans do? Considering he never actually did anything this is hardly justice.

I hope the pension fund realizes some of this profit on all the money it has been pumping into the stock market to support Abe's failed policies.
