Are you sure coronavirus is doing that? Lots of medical professionals, both clinical and in research, are saying something else is causing that.

Posted in: Ukraine president asks for evidence on new invasion warnings See in context

Other than an invasion, what excuse does Russia have in surrounding Ukraine on three sides with over 100,000 troops.

According to the Russians themselves, it's as a result of even larger military build ups on their western border. Any attack will be repulsed and then some but they aren't going to start it.

Posted in: Japan's COVID-19 death toll tops 20,000 See in context

No, that would be incorrect. They didn't even start vaccinating in Japan until Spring 2021. The first deaths were recorded over a year before that in Feb 2020.

But the vast majority of Covid deaths have occurred since summer 2021.

To start answering that question yourself check the number of deaths first before vaccinations even started

Deaths surged when mass vaccination started and then settled down to be pretty much exactly the same as before anyone was vaccinated pending the current surge. Judging by that, the vaccines may be only useless and not worse than useless. But then counting the number of people acknowledged to have died from the vaccines, it's a bit of a stretch to say they aren't worse than useless.

these people would nearly all have been vaccinated, correct?

Surely not. The vaccines don't stop infection but prevent death due to Covid.

Alarm bells should be ringing. If it were 40~50 times worse, Japan would be like countries with 3rd world health care systems such as USA.

Posted in: Mizuho Bank suffers another ATM system failure See in context

There are basically 3 players in Japan. IBM (the US owned software arm, not the Chinese owned PC arm), NEC and Fujitsu. The last of those has a much smaller market share. If Mizuho has been using IBM, the solution is very simple, drop it and go with NEC or Fujitsu. If it's NEC or Fujitsu, demand the CEO make up for the losses personally like they do in China with incompetent, greedy capitalist pigs. Then demand he (assuming it's a guy) publicly disembowel himself!

Posted in: Macron: Putin told him Russia won't escalate Ukraine crisis See in context

Please tell us how this is so? US forces are in northern Syria and western Iraq specifically to defeat Daesh and prevent a repeat of the Yazidi genocide.

Firstly, apparently NATO had been at war with ISIS for a number of years and the altter was only getting stronger and expanding to new lands. They were on the brink of overrunning Syria until the Russians entered the fray.

NATO tyrants, in order to realize their tyrannical if not outright genocidal aims, want Al Qaida to operate here but not there. They want ISIS to operate there but not here. They want neo-Nazis in power in Kiev but not in Paris. They want fascist kill squads operating in Venezuela but not Florida.

The only thing which is uniformly true, is that all of their is to the detriment of the general population everywhere.

Posted in: Macron: Putin told him Russia won't escalate Ukraine crisis See in context

In Syria NATO backs Al Qaida. In Iraq they back ISIS. In Ukraine they back neo-Nazis. In South America they back fascist kill squads. It's not just that they are murderous tyrants (though of course they are). They are managing failing societies so are desperate to channel social anger outward.

The tyrants admit they have no defense against Russian hypersonic missiles. It's time Putin and his capitalists withdrew their money from their Swiss bank accounts and use the hypersonic missiles. Only against military targets but make it clear, NATO resorting to their usual tactic of terror bombing of civilian targets will result in devastating strikes against the richest neighborhoods in Berlin, Paris, London, Washington, New York, Totonto. Do that and the Ukraine will be liberated in no time at all.

Posted in: Asian markets shrug off tech-led selloff on Wall Street See in context

Why not? The US Fed tightened from 2015 to 2018 when it hiked rates several times as the economy grew. And Bank of Japan has been tapering its bond purchases for several months now.

Tightened it about 1% point before Wall Street flipped out and demanded it be reversed.

When? I've been hearing this for 30 years. A prediction without a timeframe is useless. Eventually, over the very long term, everything collapses.

That doesn't necessarily mean the market. We can see how decayed US society is and getting worse. The end is getting near. Impossible to say exactly when as the entire economy has devolved into a confidence game. Will social crisis push it over the edge or will Wall Street go first? The race is on.

It's not surprising given the issues in Eastern China, that that the Ayatollah is not there with his buddies.

I think you mean the now widely accepted sick US secret police fiction about genocide in Western China. No one outside of USA, UK, Australia, Canada has ever taken it seriously. At least not since the intrepid CIA agent smuggled out pics of a torture chamber in Xinjiang which turned out to be a BDSM club in Taipei. Still no word if he used tax payers money for those services.

Posted in: Asian markets shrug off tech-led selloff on Wall Street See in context

People have been saying that for many, many years, every time the stock market takes a dip. Even if there is a financial crisis like 2008, the Us economy has proven its ability to bounce right back, faster than most other economies.

So the stock market is a good indicator of the true state of the economy? The real economy is a disaster in a large part due to the high price of stocks. i.e. printing money which the general population pays for via inflation so that Wall Street doesn't collapse. And they have no way to reverse the process. It's only a matter of when the house of cards collapses and given the state of the real economy, it won't be long.

The world capitalist economy, in fear of its continued existence, is decoupling from the US economy. The US owes US$7 trillion debt than the entire worth of the US economy. Hopelessly unstable and certainly tottering on the brink of collapse. That's the reason for all the warmongering.

Denmark too. They dropped all Covid restrictions now, acknowledging that it is possible to deal with the virus without shutting down society and trampling on human rights.

And all the Scandinavian countries have banned or recommended against administering the mRNA shots to minors. China, India, Indonesia, Venezuela, Cuba and Russia have gone about it the right way by banning the mRNA concoctions period.

Luckily we live in Japan not Austria,. Here there a re no rules ile Austria or many other countries, zero restrictions or discrimination to being unvaccinated. NO rules to go anywhere or do anything. I think it must be illegal to even ask someone if you are vaccinated or not. Work, medical visits place I thought might want to know if people are vaccinated or not have never asked. Restaurants, shops, offices etc of course never too. It does not even seem to make difference to reentry to the country quarantine rules either.

Japan, Sweden and Russia are beacons of light in a world or Covid tyranny.

The vast majority of Ukrainians do not feel any warm about Putin. They have the highest level of contempt mixed with disgust.

Exactly what are you qualifications to speak for "the vast majority" of Ukrainians? Seems like wishful thinking to me. The current president was elected on a landslide when he was promising to end the civil war and repair relations with Russia. Now the fascists have put him in his place and he is continuing their policies, he is so unpopular it's almost funny in a black comedy kind of way.
