Health care in China has always been third world quality. Add a pandemic to the poor quality health care and that makes it a dangerous place to visit for anyone.

Posted in: China extends military exercises around Taiwan See in context

Maybe China was unable to complete the exercise in the time frame because of the hot weather. They need to fire the commander for failing to do it on time.

China lied about the "exercises" already because they said it would end Sunday.

A recruiter approached me when I was a college freshman in the business district near campus. Again decades later another recruiter outside the airport at Incheon. Both were very nice and difficult to say no. Fortunately I was aware of the organization and its reputation.

China still hasn't distributed mRNA vaccines. Does anyone doubt that the top level party members have had several doses themselves?

How wonderful he had a chance to do it again. Of course, the first time the technology available today was missing, and the man will be the first to tell us about that.

A sick fantasy. If he really did it he would have to stay in a bunker for the rest of his days, if a week. And his army? They will have to come out of their bunkers to continue fighting if any are left to fight. Of course they will be irradiated.

Posted in: Woman who left Japan using dead mother's passport charged with her murder See in context

Maybe she thought she could make her mother disappear in UK by creating a travel record. If she was on the run it wouldn't make sense to be using the victim's passport.

It wouldn't likely hit a specific target, not without doing the math and having accurate measurements of when and where the target would be. 54 year old behaving like a college idiot? Maybe. Or maybe attempted murder.

Every time I red the number I have to ask "Is that good or bad?" It looks like Japan has done a very good job of handling the pandemic. Congratulations on keeping the numbers down.

China's money is welcome in the Middle East, big surprise. The CCP still are ethnic cleansing Uighurs at home. They would do it in the Middle East, too. Sorry about the uprising in the Solomon Islands, but maybe they need to address the fact that the PRC is the problem, not the solution.

A "Get Rich Quick" convention Miami. Crypto has too many criminals using it for me to get involved. There are lots of wealthy people, sure, and they don't mind the risk when someone else gets hurt.

Posted in: Putin going to G20 in Bali summit 'a step too far': Australian PM See in context

I agree with ClippetyClop. The G20 is for the top 20 economic leaders to meet. The ruble is worth less than $0.01 because of sanctions, down from 84 rubles to the dollar. Whatever the criteria is to be in the top 20, Putin is quickly pushing Russia the other direction.

If Sri Lanka is unsafe for her to return, then should not Sri Lanka have to pay for her expenses until Sri Lanka is safe for her to return home?  It is sad that the immigration officials failed, but so did Sri Lanka and the government of Sri Lanka should have to pay their share.

Posted in: Japan considering sanctions on Belarus over its support for Russian invasion of Ukraine See in context

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Lukashenko stated that concerns about the pandemic were a "frenzy and a psychosis" and that working the tractors, drinking vodka and going to saunas could prevent people from infection from the virus. "People are working in tractors. No one is talking about the virus", Lukashenko said on 16 March 2020. "There, the tractor will heal everyone. The fields heal everyone". He also said: "I don’t drink, but recently I’ve been saying that people should not only wash their hands with vodka, but also poison the virus with it. You should drink the equivalent of 40–50 milliliters of rectified spirit daily", but he advised against doing so while at work.[166][167] By early May, Belarus was reported to have 15,000 diagnosed cases, one of the highest per capita rates of infection in Eastern Europe.[168]
