All the votes in that occupied land have been rigged by the occupiers. There are many successful islands nations in the Pacific that don't need thieves from the other side of the world to run them.

The smoke blowing double standards from the 'Taiwan/Ukraine should be free' NATO crowd is astonishing.

What’s “astonishing” is that the forum Moscow mouthpiece has the temerity to talk about rigged elections and invasions without a hint of recognizing supreme, hilarious, delicious irony.

Don’t worry, perhaps they will find a way to silence all opposition …maybe with some Soviet era nerve toxins just…happening…to find their way onto the opposition when they’re out at the mall or some such. Or perhaps they will just happen to slip and fall from a high balcony. These things happen, comrade.

Asking help to good old US???... 

A heartless country who hasn't friends, only interests..

Dude, go outside and get some air.

All of your posts come across like a jilted ex, or teenage girl with her first heartbreak. It’s so sad to watch. Like the USA broke up with you or something and ran off with your best friend, and now you’re left to spend your days stalking them on social media and crap posting on anything even remotely relating to them.

It’s ok… he just wasn’t that into you.

I've been, but only once thirty years ago.

And you feel that is still relevant…how?

We’ve been to Rome 3 times in the last 5 years…spent a total of 3 weeks in the city.

Theres nothing unique about the pricing; the scams and gouging that happen there happen in all major cities. Touristy places will rip you off for Chef Boy-Ar-Dee quality pasta, but a block away will be a place with some of the best pasta you ever have.

i dare say in this day and age, with ALLLL the resources available at everyone’s fingertips at all times, if you’re still getting ripped off places, that’s likely on you.

You don't have to comment on every US story as much as you want to.

Everything US lives rent free in his brain. Never seen anyone so slavishly controlled by such an inferiority complex. Honestly feel bad for the guy, if he’s not a sock puppet Sino/Russo propaganda account, it’s sad anyone could be this miserable all the time.

Posted in: Yes, efforts to eliminate DEI programs are rooted in racism See in context

Utter clown world.

If you’re opposed to the idea of judging someone whole or in part based on the color of their skin; you’re the racist.

If you believe people should be treated fairly and equally regardless of skin tone or melanin levels, you’re doing that because “racism”

If you believe it’s perfectly fine to discriminate against, say , Asian students or Hasidic Jews because they do well academically statistically speaking, you’re not racist because…reasons.

The whole goal of articles like this is to try and convince you the blatantly obvious not only isn’t true, but the exact opposite is. We’re at a point now where not only is what is obviously correct labeled as racist or discriminatory, but established words and principles and their definitions are now forbidden.

The good news is the world is waking up to this chicanery and nonsense, and what we’re seeing are the dying tantrums and last gasps of a failed ideology crumbling under the weight of its own idiocy

A Japanese friend of mine told me that 20 or so years ago she spent a week in Hawaii at a very nice hotel and paid only ¥70,000 including the flights. Nowadays that same sum would just about cover the surcharge

A week at a nice hotel in Hawaii with round trip tickets for $450?

No way that was 20 years ago..

If you want to condemn Japan for their invasion, then you need to condemn America and Canada for stripping Japanese people of their land, their belongings and jobs and locking them up in camps for the duration of the war while they were living as peaceful citizens and had no involvement in the attacks

Just stop.

The terrible unconstitutionality of what happened to Japanese Americans is a terrible shame, but to try and put that into the same context as even a FRACTION of the despicable acts by the IJA and IJN during that war is just laughable whataboutism.

Are people really this daft?

The US cannot accept that the Kosovo precedent can be applied elsewhere. They pretend it is their unique privilege and monopoly to do this to countries. It's a unipolar mindset rooted in the past.

Ah yes.

Nothing like some comedic gold posts from our favorite Russian stooge.

Much better to just invade peaceful neighbors, blatantly try and annex land like it’s 1939, and then use some good old fashioned 1960s Cold War tactics to promptly get tens of thousands of your troops butchered and become the laughingstock of the world all while revealing your corrupt mafia state cannot be trusted further than it can be thrown.

One has to wonder why this recrimination and pearl clutching ever only seems to go one way over one group.

Why are there not similar articles hand-wringing over the lack of Hispanic players in the NHL? Why so few East Asians in the NFL?? Why not more peoples of middle eastern descent in NASCAR?

Posted in: U.S. urges Japan, other allies to tighten China's access to chip technology, Bloomberg reports See in context

Why should countries have dysfunctional neighbors? This is not clear to me. It’s better when your neighbors are prosperous and wealthy. If your neighbor is not prosperous or under sanctions, he will not become better for you. It is a utopia to think that limiting the development of another country will be good for you. result. On the contrary, the more you impose restrictions on countries, the more angry your neighbor is with you. Why this is not clear to anyone.

This is one of the most laughably naive things I’ve ever read on this site.

That mindset only works if the nation in question has the same basic respect and intentions as the other nations with which it interacts. If your state routinely bullies and intimidates its neighbors, saber rattles endlessly about invading and annexing its neighbor, has one of the most appalling human rights abuse track records in the developed world, and is operating a fully state funded and sanctioned industrial espionage program more extensive than anything seen in history…

Yeah, in that case, giving them the ammunition with which to shoot you in the back of the head after stealing all of your trade secrets seems like kiiiiind of a silly and naive proposal, don’t you think?

You'd think Sweden has never attacked or invaded Russia before by some of the comments here. 

Try reading a history book for once!

Watching JJE flounder on topics like these is always worth the price of admission, as if Russia didn’t do a good enough job on its own completely OBLITERATING any sense of respect, trust, or good-will on its own, its dispatched stooges on the internet for their best to finish it off as painfully as possible.

Yes, because Charles XII’s war 300+ years ago, is certainly relevant to today’s geopolitical arena, for sure. By that logic, no one should speak with Italy because 2,000 years ago they were at war with and controlled the continent. Or how Napoleon and France? Heck why not Germany and Japan?

There’s making bad analogies because you know your side is irredeemably reviled, and then there’s making bad analogies because …well..you just suck at making good ones.

Posted in: Gov't to extend extra ¥100 bil for quake relief in central Japan See in context

The above the usual from the anti-democracy herd, those who use media here, to undermine democracy, while showing a lack of understanding of how this democracy is able to simultaneously deal with multiple issues both domestic and foreign.

This is, of course, exactly right.

The usual 3-5 posters will post their usual diatribe of pro-Russian and Chinese military aggression, and beat their chests when either of those despotic regimes claims to have accomplished some military feat, or furthered some expenditure on another military investment. That of course to them shows how strong and resolute they are, you see.

Japan, or any Japanese ally or Western nation in general expends any amount on defense or strong foreign policy, and these same characters of course crow loudly about “b-b-but that money should be spent at home!”, all of course while hypocritically praising the aforementioned despotic regimes every time they sink more of their money in regional warfare.

A thinking person of course knows what is going on with these sock puppet accounts. They can’t and never will be able to defend their views. Any move by Japan or any ally of Japan that furthers their defensive interests and strengthens them militarily will of course be attacked not out of true concern or care for nation or the Japanese, but because it makes their preferred bully nations have to sweat a bit more as other countries won’t just roll over to their bullying.

Posted in: Japan becomes 5th country to land spacecraft on moon See in context


It was never a race. The US only went to the moon because the Russians had beaten them to every other milestone. The Russian were not planning on a moon trip so the US could claim a "victory" over its cold war enemy. 

Who will be country no. 6?

Utter nonsense.

Firstly, the Soviets very much had ambition and plans to put cosmonauts on the moon, including lunar flybys and a manned lunar landing. The programs were scrapped for various technical reasons, largely due to the series of catastrophic failures of the primary launch N1 rockets which were totally unstable. But they were absolutely planned and funded. Saying otherwise is just patent disinformation.

The ENTIRE SPACE RACE was nothing but pure geopolitical gamesmanship in space, for all sides. But to try and poo poo the moon landings, arguably one of if not THE greatest scientific triumph in human history, is just absurd. No one will ultimately care who was the first country to put fruit flys and chimpanzees into orbit 13 months before the other guy.

Putting HUMAN BEINGS on the moon, another celestial body, walking around and returning home, multiple times, is inarguably one of the great milestones in human endeavor. Trying to belittle that because “they only did it for x reason” is just farcical and the reason your posts are laughably ratioed.

The mayor of Okinawa Denny Tamaki went to China in July and paid his respect at the cemetery of the Ryukyu Kingdom in Beijing's Tongzhou. He knows the root and his ancestors were from China although they were being assimilation to be Japanese. The people of Okinawa has awaken from the myth of being Japanese, the govt. of Japan just don't see them as equal, like second class citizens, the Okinawand have had enough the lies spoken from all the Japanese prime ministers. Okinawa has no business in US-Japan military pact , they want China, they want a liberation and back to the hugging by Chinese !

Posted in: Germany beats Serbia 83-77 to win Basketball World Cup See in context

I didn't follow too closely but it seems the US has fallen off a cliff when it comes to basketball. They had a good run, to be sure.

Thanks for the laugh.

Without question, the US has and maintains far and away the best talent and depth in the sport. But unlike the Olympics, the US does not send its best players or take FIBA seriously, often times as clubs are less keen on injuries to their superstars just over a month before the start of the regular NBA season.

If you know anything about the sport of basketball or the NBA, and no shame if you don’t, but if you look at the best players in the league at each position, and then look at the FIBA rosters, there is a marked difference.

Posted in: N Korea unveils first nuclear-armed submarine to patrol waters between Korean peninsula and Japan See in context


The USA no longer has a large fleet of Nuclear submarines.

It now has only 4 the rest have been decommissioned.

So a total of 68 sunbs 64 are diesel.

Now China and Allie of NK has 78 subs 4 of which are nuclear.

Russia has 70 subs 12 of which are nuclear.

NK has 35 subs.

So in the Pacific region

China, NK and Russia have the potential of 183 subs 16 of which are nuclear.

While the USA, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan have a combined number maximum of 115 with 4 being nuclear.

Everything you said there, everything, is patently and verifiably false with only the most cursory of internet searches.

The US has SEVENTY TWO nuclear submarines. Not 4. Not 14. Not 44. 72.

Thats more than the rest of the world. Combined. Russia is next with 33. China has 6.

I’m at a loss…your “information” isn’t even close to accurate. It’s laughably and provably false.
