correct!! I predict if we don’t turn this around there will be global famines killing billions by the early 1970s, we will be in another ice age by 23 years ago, we will deplete the ozone by 40 years ago, we will kill everything in all the lakes and oceans with acid rain, also by 40 years ago…. And so on and so forth… we, my friend, are on the side of science.

So all we need to need to do is listen to the scientist and just do what they tell us to do and everything will be fixed. Because it’s only two weeks to flatten the curve. We got this!!!!

Brilliant...and don't forget economists have predicted 8 out of the last 5 recessions!

What ol' Jack Burton always saysToday  08:43 am JST

China has never 'owned' Taiwan, this isn't a "we'll take it back" argument it's a threat of war and invasion.

Perhaps you might consider rewording your comment to say the current government of mainland China has never owned Taiwan.

Because Taiwan officially became part of China over 3 hundred years ago."

Why you selectively go back 300 years? What about before that? The mainland Chinese only came after Taiwan had been colonized by the Dutch, so according to your pretzel logic, it should actually be part of Holland. But wait, in fact the rightful "owners" are the indigenous peoples who have been there for 6000 years. Let's peacefully return the land to them.

It's all about hegemony. Current system consists of one US superpower hegemon and it's G7 minions. Not perfect, but it is the the "least worst" system. Alternative is China, Russia hegemonic challenge to US which would result in a period of perilous global instability and lots of wars.

japancatToday  10:58 am JST

The biggest change for me was to realize that when the do-do hits the fan....democracy is dead and the media and big pharma are in bed with the governments, and when push comes to shove all your rights are gone and 'They' slap Mandates on you !"

Indeed, brings to mind the Clash song, Know Your Rights.

If any enemy has some invisible way to get that close, we are all in trouble"

With all due respect there are many military techniques which are invisible or very difficult to see or track even with advanced tech. Small drones, electromagnetic pulses, stealth fights, radio jammers, chemicals, etcetc. Not saying that any of that happened here, but your rant seems to claim that none of this tech exists.

Posted in: Japan urges peace in Taiwan Strait See in context

The island referred to as Taiwan has never belonged to China. It was previously colonized by imperialist Portuguese and Dutch, who were then followed by Chinese mainlanders with another wave post-WW2. Therefore, the only peaceful and just solution is to return it to its rightful owners, namely the indigenous peoples who inhabited this island before all the imperialist intrusions.

Posted in: Japan beats Italy 9-3 to reach World Baseball Classic semifinals See in context

This competition is a farce. Italy? Baseball????? C'mon!

There simply aren't enough teams playing to have a global competition. Suggested revised format.

US and Japan automatic semifinals. Other Asian teams single game knockout playoff, and winner goes to best of 5 semi against Japan. Rest of world does same, and winner against US.

Finals is 4 out of 7. But it only makes sense if the very best Americans play, not a second rate B squad
