The resurgence of the virus comes after the Japanese government removed its cap in October on daily foreign arrivals and its ban on individual travelers from abroad and non-prearranged trips.

Surely not. Foreigners responsible for the resurgence of the virus?

They probably weren't wearing masks.

Sanctions are backfiring, as usual.

Very reductionist thinking. 

The sanctions are removing the oligarchs’ wealth. As oligarchs control Russia (it’s an oligarchy), this puts pressure on them to overthrow Putin, or end up a broke peon lining up for cabbage with the people. 

The only way this war ends is for the people of Russia to rise up and remove Putin. Until then let them eat cabbage.

I like cabbage

Vaccines tend to work.

Had a few when I was a kid.

Harsh flu strains happen sometimes. Get jabbed for extra safety or just rely on yr body to shake it off.

Mandatory jabbing? That’s political, not scientific. Or reasonable.
