It would greatly help if you could share some of that lot of evidence
Look at Iceland, Singapore, Israel all of which are over 80% fully vaccinated.

Hence Russia's weak vaccine.
That's from the left-field. What does Russia's "weak" vaccine have to do with fascistic vaccine measures in Japan?

Five eyes is for intelligence gathering and sharing.
It's about spying on the general population. Russia and China have counter measures to deny the ability of "5 Eyes" to spy on them.

Look at the mask wearing! The Russian foreign minister also had a meeting with NATO. He is about 70 and a little overweight but was strolling along without a mask while the younger NATO leaders were all wearing masks....... It's like one is vaccinated with a vaccine that actually works and the others aren't.

The last Bond movie I saw was the one with the guy with a deformed face. They actually went so far as to not only copy large parts of the plot from "The Dark Knight" but went so far as to copy the exact dialog. It was patently absurd!!!

More bullcrap from Vladimir. He paid bounties to the Taliban to off our US soldiers. Now that his quisling boot-licker is no longer in the WH, now he says he's 'on our side' against the Taliban.
And I ain't buying it.
This is a joke, right? It's funny.

Russia is only working in sync because the Taliban is bad for them and their vested interests in the middle east.
Afghanistan is in the Middle East? Of course. Every Muslim country is in the Middle East, right?

China is the largest trading partner of over 120 countries in the world.
Including Japan, Russia, USA, India, Brazil, Indonesia, Vietnam, the EU as a whole and Germany separate from the EU. This is capitalism. Money talks. India and Japan will soon find some kind of "common ground" with China.

No, it is all behind the Quad. Absolutely nobody is behind China. China is on the losing side.
I think it would be better if you stopped deluding yourself. At worst from a Chinese perspective, most of the rest of the Indo-Pacific is neutral. Most importantly, China is the largest trading partner for USA, India and Australia.

Cryptocurrencies are the epitome of gambling. Even the most fervent of cryptocurrency enthusiasts admit there are no hard assets behind them. National currencies in theory have gold, other minerals, industry and etc behind them.

this is basically a hostage situation that was resolved in favor of the Chinese.
How do you figure? Is she really smart of just the daughter of a rich guy? Canada got two political prisoners back and China one so the final score was Canada:2 China: 1
I'd back China to win the rematch if Canada wants to keep playing.

One political prisoner for two. Canada got the better deal. Though in keeping with "Western values" the Chinese political prisoner is very rich so she was confined to her multi million dollar mansion. China doesn't share "Western values" so no matter how much money those Canadians have/had, they were always going to hard time just like anyone else.

Russia=Too much land
Agree but being from Norway, a neighboring country, I know trying to take it away from them hasn't gone well. In fact, it's gone very very badly. Every time it's been tried, Russia gets bigger. Best to just leave them be to swill vodka and be happy.
According to the CIA world factbook, poverty in Russia is almost 10% lower than USA and Russians get free health care and an excellent free education.
Russians trying to escape and go to other countries for better life.
Hardly only Russians. Lots of Japanese want to live elsewhere.
Anyway, I hope Japan can get hold of at least 2 of those islands. All 4 is out of the question. Forget it. 2 may be possible with a lot of concessions. Not now but at some point in the future if Japan and Russia have a good relationship. What is important if Japanese citizens really want 2 of those islands under the jurisdiction of the Japanese state is to tell right-wing politicians to STFU about them "being part of Japan". This kind of talk just makes the Russians shrug and say, "Well, Japan can forget about any territorial concessions from us."

Yep. entire Asia would have been completely peaceful as colonies flattering everyday to their white bosses like a dog
Good point. It's true Japanese armies invaded the Soviet Union in 1939 and Japan stole those lands from the native people. Japan has to pay a price for that as Germany did with Königsberg but to suggest east Asia would have lived in peace in some capitalist utopia if it weren't for Japanese aggression in the war is utterly absurd.
Japanese politicians and citizens demanding Russia hand over those lands as if such demands don't make it more certain the Russians will keep them is just as absurd. The only possible way for Japan to get anything is to have good relations with Russia, engage in mutually beneficial projects and then at some point in the future, respectfully ask for jurisdiction over 1 or 2. The Ainu have more chance of getting all 4 islands than the Japanese state does.

Three highly effective vaccines? The second most vaccinated country, Singapore which uses the 3 Big Pharma concoctions, smashed the record for daily infections yesterday. The most vaccinated country, San Marino which doesn't use any Big Pharma concoctions, had zero cases........

As usual, the macaroon behaving like a spoiled kid who has dropped his lollipop and mummy won’t buy him another. Hardly statesmanlike.
As others have pointed out, France massively over promised and hugely under performed then tried to stiff the Australians for the cost.
I don't know the details but assuming this is accurate, the Australian regime promised France the deal was on in July when they much have been in negotiations with USA long before that. I guess the Australian regime was justifiably worried about the outrage USA selling nuclear power subs to a non nuclear tech country would illicit.
Let's hope common sense prevails and this deal ends up getting cancelled. Get diesel electric subs. Beter for coastal defence and not dangerous in the hands of a non-nuclear tech country.

Important to note that the rioters have set themselves against not only the Government, but also the Australian Council of Trade Unions and their own Union, the CFMEU.
More evidence the unions are hopelessly corrupt. Democratically elected rank n file committees of the workers are needed to fight the hopelessly obsolete capitalist system and it's corrupt capitalistic union execs.

Good for them. Requiring vaccines is a gross human rights violation. If the vaccines work, vaccinated people have nothing to worry about. If they don't, why would anyone want them?

We know Western countries didn't bail-out the small investors and homeowners but the billionaire class who caused the crisis. Is China just as corrupt? So far, it seems not.

She was arrested because she was trying to sell the stolen item.
She has confessed not just to the theft of that particular item, but to the thefts of other stolen items as well
That's too bad. At least she tried to correct the errors of the state. I presume for that they will throw the book at her.

Arrested on suspicion? I hope she doesn't confess. They can't prove it. If the state refuses to tax these leeches, your girls have top take matters into their own hands.

French nuclear subs to not use any US technology. Their program is independent of the US and UK so it is not a case of the French program could be taken away at any time. Among the nations possessing nuclear powered subs you forgot India.
You are right. India has 2 nuke powered subs. No plans for anymore. Brazil doesn't but may have at some stage in the future. So we have France, UK, USA, China, Russia, India and ......... Australia!!!!! with nuke powered subs. So which country is Australia is planning offensive operations against? It could only be NZ or Papua New Gunnia

A version of Japan's latest submarine was offered to Australia with some changes to increase living space for taller Australian sailors.
What utter nonsense. The average height difference between "tall" Australians and Scandinavians is more than the average height between "short" Japanese and "tall" Australians. You Australians are midgets but you could still use our subs.
-11 ( +4 / -15 )
What the hell does Australia want nuclear powered subs for? France and UK have nuclear powered subs reliant on US tech that can be taken away at anytime. Other than France, UK, USA, Russia, China, which countries have nuclear powered subs? They are offensive weapons. For coastal defense, diesel-electric subs are far superior. So which country is Australia planning offensive operations against? China or NZ? If the former, if I were advising the Australian regime, I'd suggest not doing that.

If the guy purposely touched her breasts or nether regions, he deserves to be punished severely. Personally I've never grabbed breasts or anywhere else on a train to a stranger but numerous times I have breasts pushed up against me on a train or bus. When trying to pivot to get off myself or allow someone else to get off, I've maneuvered so the upper part of my arm was touching breasts. I'm always paranoid to keep my arms firmly by my side, hands facing inward in case I inadvertently "touch a woman's thigh".
