Ah, Suzuki Muneo. He never fails to entertain us with his antics. After returning to Japan, he was questioned with regards to his comments, made while in Russia, that "Russia will win the war in Ukraine". Apparently, he mentioned the word "cease-fire" as a crucial component of Russia's victory, with the word supposedly having being "omitted" by the Japanese media. This clown needs to mind his own business.

Kudos to とにかく明るい安村. His comedic act may be silly, perhaps even infantile, but to do what he did takes courage and determination. In a world that has become increasingly sensitive and pc, he reminds us that it is ok to laugh at the absurd. For all the naysayers out there, don't worry.....he will soon be half-forgotten, just like that other one hit wonder PPAP Pikotaro.

This is hypocrisy at its worst. China still requires a negative PCR test for those entering the country. But no, how dare any other country impose such measures...

Hey China, your zero covid policy was a complete failure. All you've done is create an even bigger problem. We don't need a repeat of three years ago.

Mr. pot meet kettle. China's lack of transparency and failed attempts at zero covid have only resulted in an explosion of outbreaks. After HK implemented a similar policy, it now has the audacity to cry foul.

Hu Jintao does have health issues. Xi Jinping considered him too healthy to be kept around.

Xi's smug look and Li Keqiang's expression of shock says it all.

Wonder Girls ? Nobody outside Asia remembers them.

BTS ? American teenage girls scream and swoon as they are invited to the White House.

Psy certainly helped to open doors for the Korean music industry, in his own unique way, in the interim.

As a side note, I wonder what became of Pikotaro post Apple Pen ?

Posted in: How far has political correctness gone in Japan? See in context

Has political correctness gone too far in Japan ? I think not. While some may decry the faux pas of people like Peter Vlaming, there was a time back in early 平成 (Heisei) when Japanese game shows would show topless women on prime time TV for ostensibly "educational" purposes. Obviously, this would be unthinkable now. Just think of the feminist backlash.

Russia acknowledges significant troop losses

And ? Does it want the world's sympathy ? I wish it would acknowledge the wanton destruction and crimes against humanity that it has unleashed.

Posted in: Russia to halt peace treaty talks with Japan over sanctions See in context

It is a really stupid political move by the Japanese officials.

No self-respecting democracy would remain "neutral" after such a heinous invasion of a sovereign country. 141 countries condemned Putin's invasion. And "neutral" would clearly align Japan with China's CCP. Is that really a viable option in the current geopolitical climate ?

I'm more surprised they haven't invaded Hokkaido yet...

I'm sure mad Vlad has enough on his plate at present. If reports are to be believed, Putin has his sights set on Moldova, the Baltic states and Finland. Stalin may have been denied Hokkaido, but that was way back then. Let us hope it doesn't come to that.

Enough said. Isn't this akin to trying to negotiate with a pathological liar and obfuscator ? Russia is acting like the isolated pariah that it is, lashing out pathetically like the fox and the sour grapes.

Posted in: China offers help for 'grave' Ukraine situation See in context

Let's hope China does help. Still, the US could have prevented this...

The only "help" that comes from China is the kind that benefits its own ends. Putin is proving to be a disappointment to Xi for failing to "get the job done".

I'm no fan of Biden, but you may as well say that the Russian people could have prevented all this if they hadn't grown complacent and accepted "strongman" Putin as their dear leader for all these years.

China "offers help" for grave Ukraine situation.

There. I fixed the title.

Funny how the nefarious CCP initially expected a quick Russian victory in Ukraine, but then backtracked in the face of international condemnation and unexpected Ukrainian resistance to the invasion. Whoops.

"China is ready to make its own constructive efforts in maintaining world peace...and promoting development and prosperity." Yeah, whatever. All the while refusing to criticize Russia. How convenient.

Kudos for their great performance. Unfortunately, they were apparently outclassed by others.

And of course China scored the most points. Yes, their performance was certainly outstanding but I can't help but wonder if they had a home advantage...

Posted in: Britain beats Japan 10-3 to win Olympic women’s curling gold See in context

@OreiO Perhaps I did miss your point. Japanese media lebelled the match as 残念, 頑張った (Too bad, Well done and you did us proud.) I personally don't think there is any negativity at all. Latest news from NHK: "The best result ever." Fujisawa herself: "I felt disappointed but I think we did well." A former Japanese curler, Miyo Ichikawa, said in an interview that she had nothing but respect for the team.

Kudos to Fujisawa, the two Yoshidas and Suzuki.

Congratulations to the British team. No doubt they're relieved to not only clinch the gold, but to also win against the very team that beat them four years ago.

And as for Japan, they did one better than before which is an achievement in itself. They can hold their heads high and be proud that curling has been recognized through their achievements.

Unfortunately this will be deemed somewhat of a failure...by Japanese media

No, it won't. Japan has more than proven itself in the women's speed skating. The advantage of being runner up is that you can still be expected to achieve future glory.

''Yurika Yoshida hugs Hailey Duff'' Now, that's what it's all about; respect among athletes.
