Unsure how this affects my plan to move to Ashgabat ......

Same here. They don't call Ashbagat “city of the dead” for no reason.

Posted in: Japan hopeful of sharing military intelligence again with S Korea See in context

It's like a one-party system here (Japan), like China. Only difference is that China gets things done. 

If that's the only difference you see between Japan and China you might want to look just a wee bit harder.

Posted in: 22-year-old woman arrested for putting newborn baby in coin locker See in context

The comments about the need for more baby hatches, etc. are generally valid but you've got to ask yourself if a woman so callous as to murder her newborn baby isn't so inherently evil (or damaged) as to make that issue academic.

That country will never change their love for guns over people. They believe in thoughts and prayers .

And what do the lucky denizens of the garden spot you call home believe in: a failed welfare state and dangerously inbred royalty?

He's not going to like it when he hears about the pulled pork sandwich booth!

At least he's looking at putting the monarchy in the rear view mirror.

Posted in: In Kyiv, Blinken and Austin announce aid, diplomatic surge See in context

What exactly is the objective of providing "hundreds of millions of dollars in new aid"?

Does the US expect this will be enough to enable the Ukrainians to defeat the Russians? If not, the only outcome appears to be prolonging the carnage.

Posted in: LA critics pick Japanese film ‘Drive My Car’ as year’s best See in context

This is either a pratical joke or the Los Angeles Film Critics Association hasn't had the chance to see either "Belfast" or "Old Henry".

Posted in: Japan to evacuate embassy in Kabul See in context

"Yeah, you'd think those decades of drone bombing would've taught them some peace eh..."

No, my learned friend, they'll learn said peace from the Taliban and their noble example of honor killings, genital mutilations and child rape.

Will I need to wear a quasi-mask? Will Quasimodo now be the Olympic mascot?

Posted in: Court rules restrictions on transgender official's use of women's toilet legal See in context

"We know that intersex people are real."

Really? What we actually know is that men wearing dresses are real.

Posted in: U.S. President Joe Biden is expected to nominate former Chicago Mayor Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel as ambassador to Japan. Which do you think is more important for incoming ambassadors: To be well connected to their country's leader or to have a good knowledge of the country they are going to? See in context

What a horrible insult to Japan on the part of Biden's caregivers.

There's nothing wrong with political appointees to such an important position. Walter Mondale and Tom Foley both did an admirable job. The fear is that the man who presided so impotently over Chicago's homicide festival will fail miserably.
