The photo depicts a desolate grieving loneliness. A melancholy mournful Monarch.

Posted in: Beijing warns U.S., Japan against collusion against China See in context

There is no escape from the fact that the Government of China is a global humanitarian cataclysmic disaster.

Environmentally, choking the there city dwellers to death.

Descent is ruthlessly put down.

Any scent of democratic reform, defenestrated, under a tank or in a torture chamber.  

Call out the bully, no quarter.

The Government of China have created a jaundiced political mistrust.

The appalling human rights violations, coupled with detainment and imprisonment, torture, to the leadership of Hong Kong democracy movement.

Is it any wonder or surprise that the Government of China would not develop a extreme paranoiac personality disorder?

US/Japan meet, and Beijing throws a diplomatic hissy fit.

The US/NATO alliance must not be withdrawn without a clear plan to replace the resource to prevent a humanitarian crisis.

One, religious fundamental extremism, will/could seize the opportunity to move into the state organizational void vacated.

At present underwritten with the presence and political influence of tactical/strategic armed forces.

Two, the indigence, aggravated by displacement from a devastating pandemic, in a region racked by religious extremism.

The Taliban is an extreme Islamic political and military organization, devolved to a fundamentalist Muslim doctrine. 

The Taliban have not gone away.

There is no turning one’s back and walking away.

Occupy a country, for what I believe is a genuine need to douse the flames of religious extremism.

The Global community has to own it

Or else back to square one.

This is not the time to announcing U.S/NATO troop withdrawals.

US Government have had to foot the burden, both politically and economically.

Whilst European Governments stand by and spout pledges and promises amounting to nothing.   

The poverty , the pandemic, displacement, require global leadership.

Posted in: Biden's chip dreams face reality check of supply chain complexity See in context

“Trying to reconstruct an entire supply chain from upstream to downstream in a single given location just isn’t a possibility," David Somo, senior vice president at ON Semiconductor, told Reuters. "It would be prohibitively expensive."

This is the same greedy justification to defend the indefensible.

The offshore mentality to squeeze every cent out of the supply chain.    

Don’t worry some sweatshop will sort it for you.

That process is very labor intensive, leading chip companies to outsource it decades ago to countries including Taiwan, Malaysia, the Philippines and China.

Supply chain complexity, is the ruthless necessity to drive down costs.

From the Fabs to the back-end factories, creates a Gordian knot within the intricate process of chip manufacturing, the reality means months of delays.

On time deliveries define a need to assess the objectivity of supply-chain performance.

The supply chain, the sheer scale will define the front-end/back-end processing lead times.

This is the fag end, cost factoring crudeness of globalization, at its most cruelest

Shorten the supply chain.

This Olympic torch relay must reach its goal/objective.

It is imperative for Japan, nationally, the peoples investment, financially.

Most importantly the Government of Japan to honor an contract/agreement.

Well, hang on a minute.

The people will have a say in the outcome.

They will be ultimately footing the bill.

So where is Yuriko Koike?

If you get the chance zichi, give it a view,

Helena Bonham Carter dramatic interpretation, of Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon, is a real gem.

It is akin to meet the kardashians in a swimming pool, it is laugh out loud.

This whole Netflix series is a dramatization.

Economic impact of U.S. sporting arms and ammunition industry 2019 (in billion U.S. dollars)

Published by David Lange, Nov 30, 2020

https://www.statista.com/statistics/219024/us-economic-impact-of-sporting-arms-and-ammunition-industry/

There is no simple straightforward political solution to US firearms control.

The possession of firearms is a way of life for whatever reason.

Meaningful change from any political party will be akin to attempting to reinvent the wheel.

The hard unpalatable facts of gun culture.

Order more body bags.  

Just don’t pretend for one moment, gun control will be fully adopted cross the aisle.

In public, politicians will be condemning the tragedies,

In private will be fully aware of there constituents doctrines and beliefs.

Posted in: Princess Mako's boyfriend to settle financial dispute with mom's ex-fiance See in context

I cannot except that a financial dispute over 4 million yen ($36,600) contributed, not for one moment, in the postponement of Princess Mako and Kei Komuro nuptials.

In the 24-page statement, Komuro vowed to "correct erroneous information as much as possible," referring to news reports of a feud between his mother and her former fiancé over money, including Komuro's educational expenses, which the ex-fiancé shouldered but Komuro and the mother regarded as a gift.

Maybe the manner in which this rather vulgar dispute has been the subject of a media farce, isn’t  congenial to say the least. 

I sense a whiff though, of political intrigue.

Hiroaki Katsu, 33, has a strange psychiatric disorder, needs counselling under court supervision.  

This is a waste of police resource. Katsu, high heel hoodlum, pump pirate, must provide the police with the names/location of his thefts/swap outs.

“I wanted to smell the scent of women’s shoes,” he admitted.

That one shoe short of a revolting compulsion disorder.

Have you read stories of women doing this? Stealing men underwear for sexual pleasure? No

Do you read stories of women trying to record men in the bathroom for sexual pleasure? No

ReasonandWisdomNippon

Could be because men/women fantasize sexual pleasures in a completely different manner, environment.

Not comparable.

The Venus and Mars factor?

It appears that Takahiro Kubo is unable to control an overwhelming desire, a fetish if you will, to acquire/steal women’s swim suits and underwear.

I don’t think locking him up is the answer, counselling combined with electronic tagging.

Yes Meghan (sorry), is expecting.

Under the circumstances Harry could attend.

Posted in: COVID, Philip's no-fuss attitude mean simpler funeral plan See in context

For me it is the colour and texture of Prince Philip life that intrigues.

A square peg in a round hole to royal courtiers. The grey suited appointed bourgeoisie.

Her Majesty, The Queen, adored Prince Philip, no doubt there.

The loss must be overwhelming.

Buckingham Palace will announce later when the funeral will be held and how many people will attend. Funerals are currently restricted to 30 people or fewer under England’s coronavirus rules, so it's likely to be immediate family only.

I wondered, disgracefully, if I could get odds on naming 15/20 of the 30? 

Or many how many will attend?.

Will Megan attend with Husband Harry?

Posted in: Prince Philip, husband of Queen Elizabeth II, dies at 99 See in context

Prince Philip, was a dry witted fellow, to the point of insensitivity, his quips and gaffs are well documented.

To accuse Prince Philip though of racism is a tad politically mendacious, insincere.

And maybe born out of angry red mist.

Nothing complicated about Prince Philip public demeanor, what one saw, what one got.  

What is wretched about aristocracy/nobility is a innate sense of entitlement from their first breath.

That is a political opinion for a more appropriate time.

It is the fallout/breakdown from the relationship of Kei Komuro Mother and her former fiancé.

That is the deal breaker.

Posted in: Princess Mako's boyfriend expresses resolve to marry her See in context

It would/could be solved, simply by coming to agreed settlement.

Allegedly four million yen. If that is the reason for this delay. 

A 24-page document/statement published through Kei Komuro lawyers?

For a debt of four million yen?  The attorney fees would be eye wincing.

The boyfriend and former fiancé of Princess Mako.

Former being the optimum word, if Kei Komuro quoted as former fiancé, then a wedding is unlikely, for obvious reasons.   

Maybe, Kei Komuro Mother’s relationship with this former fiancé, is the fly in the ointment, to much baggage.

Of course, the prospect of a universe inhabited with species of all shapes and sizes is the stuff of science fiction.

They come; they view.

Even in the 21st century. It is not difficult to notice, politically, national governments continue to detest, loathe, despise each other.

Osaka logged a record 719 new virus cases on Tuesday. The prefecture, which has been experiencing a rapid rise in virus cases since the end of March, has also seen the more contagious variants make up around half of infections.

The contagious variants are rightfully concerning.

And take the necessary proportionally measures.

Central Government must support proposals, both fiscal and economically.

What variants have been identified?
