South Korea has risen from war, poverty and military dictatorships to a cultural and economic powerhouse with a vibrant democracy
Yes along with one of the highest rates of life disatisfaction and suicide.

White said that with crypto "there's really no asset. There's no underlying product or service or feature there that is driving the price. It's really just the hype and the attention".
She should talk to the banks who have already started integrating crypto related services.

The US is grounding them just to make nice with emotional Japanese leaders, who need to "appear" to be doing something, when they can't really do anything.
Yes and to camouflage the lack of sovereignty that the J govt has in these matters, even though it is a "democracy."

Do you think anyone buys that Japan bears no responsibility for its politics?
If you can find anywhere that I said that I'll buy you a car.
As it stands yet another outstanding gem of a statement by you.

Grounding all Ospreys until an accident cause is determined is the correct thing to do

Yes all signs do point in his direction, if it's a good trial they will thoroughly explore all the alternative possibilities and then make a decision.

Serpentinite preceded quartz-porphyry as stone mold in general, said Chuhei Takashima, an archaeologist with expertise in the Yoshinogari ruins, adding that the technology could have directly derived from the Korean Peninsula.
That would be in step with the emperor's statement in 2002 when Japan cohosted the World Cup with South Korea that his ancestors on his mother's side were Korean (naturally the majority of Japanese media avoided reporting this in any overt way, if at all).

Great to have lawmakers and prime ministers who are not briefed before major meetings and are therefore "unaware" of who they are talking to...
The stark reality is that it was revealed that Abe and the LDP were very thoroughly acquainted with and receiving massive amounts of donations/free voluntary labor from the Unification Church, so Kishida is nothing but another corrupted bare faced LDP liar who still thinks the public can be easily duped.
Keep going with it, Kishida, your ratings have dropped below 30%...

IS was formed out of the chaos that ensued after the US invaded and began occupying Iraq... people like to think after the open fighting is done everything is finished, but that simply isn't the case.

Standard US playbook is to escalate tensions to the breaking point and then blame the other side when the conflict invariably arises... or even fabricate an incident i.e. Gulf of Tonkin.

Last year, Air Force Special Operations Command ordered a temporary stand-down of its Osprey fleet following back-to-back safety incidents where the Osprey clutch slipped, causing an uneven distribution of power to its rotors.
The Marine Corps and Navy have reported similar clutch slips, and each service has worked to address the issue in their aircraft, however clutch failure was also cited in a 2022 fatal U.S. Marine Corps Osprey crash that killed five.
According to the investigation of that crash, “dual hard clutch engagement” led to engine failure.
Separately, a U.S. Marine Corps Osprey with 23 Marines aboard crashed on a northern Australian island in August, killing three Marines and critically injuring at least five others who were taking part in a multinational training exercise.
Okay so anyone want to still insist how safe these are LOL The Air Force itself ordered a temporary stand down.

What is undeniable is that as a result of the industrial revolution the planet has been polluted on an unprecedented scale.
Ironic that for all the conveniences and miracles of modernization it may lead to our downfall.

*The attack comes as the US deals with a surge in Islamophobic and antisemitic incidents, including violent assaults and online harassment, since the Israel-Hamas conflict began on 7 October.*
*The FBI has warned** of potential attacks by "homegrown violent extremists" since the war began.*

Alone or not, they are influenced by their environment, which in this case gives tacit approval for violence against Muslims and people of color generally.

The three, all age 20, were visiting the home of one of the victim's relatives and were walking when they were confronted by a white man with a handgun.
The ADC said a man shouted and harassed the victims, who were conversing in Arabic, then proceeded to shoot them.

I have trouble following the logic here. The impartial judiciary is not a part of the Yoon administration.
In response to the court's decision, Japanese vice minister for foreign affairs Masataka Okano summoned South Korean ambassador Yun Dukmin to lodge a "strong protest".
Yes you would be correct to be baffled if South Korea and Japan were truly democratic. However if one were to scratch the surface...

Posted in: Sixty years after the assassination of U.S. President John F Kennedy, debate still continues over whether or not there was a conspiracy to kill him. What are your views on the subject? See in context
Ask the Dulles and Cabell brothers. Thses four knew more about the spookery of the 50s and 60s than anyone else.
Yes and Dulles was very active in post war Japan to shut down Japanese citizens opposition to continued presence of US bases and funding of LDP.

LDP didn't do anything substantial then to avert this and won't now either.
