NATO better get off their A$es and start giving the Ukrainians serious weapons ASAP,
What serious weapons are you speaking of? NATO's latest aircraft? Takes well over a year of training and they are no match for S-300s, 400s and 500s regardless.
Or do you mean nukes?

The Japanese population may well think that but the 'business community' it seems doesn't share those sentiments. Over 90% of the companies HQ'd in countries which have imposed sanctions on Russia have stayed in Russia. Japanese companies in Russia have actually increased by 2% over the last year.

Putin likes Putin, and to a dictator who is also a homicidal maniac, that is all that matters.
On the one hand, Western regimes and the 'free press' call him a dictator and on the other, lament the fact opinion polls demonstrate how he is so popular. While the unelected leaders of the EU strut around ordering lockdowns, buying ineffective vaccines they personally profit from, prohibiting protests and etc.
Not surprising. Only surprising how easily they csn get the sheep to go along with their nonsense.

How much longer can the ruling regime stop the people rising up against the occupiers? On top of the criminal, uncivilized behavior and environmental contamination, they are now a huge drain on the economy. And the only purpose they serve from a military perspective is to ensure Japan is a target for the very powerful weapons arsenals of 3 of it's 4 neighbors. Unless their only purpose is to stop the independent development of Japan.

"the US has a no first strike policy"
That is patently incorrect. USA reserves the right to use nukes in the event of, 'surprising military developments' along with retaliation. They call it, 'stategic ambiguity'. A nice sounding name for a barbaric and murderous doctrine.

”The other sides opinion” being the one that recommended drowning kids and is unable to utter the word, “war” for fear of being imprisoned.
The guy said it on Russian language RT and was immediately fired. RT's been banned in the west for many months.
But why not let us see how bad it is for ourselves. Like you know, the Russians do?

Did I hear RT News referred to as a reliable source?
Who would know? It's been banned in the 'free, democratic societies' of Europe and North America. Because speaking as a European, apparently we are just too stupid and impressionable to be allowed to hear/read the other sides opinion......

Yesterday in Prague there was the biggest protest in over 30years. Protestors calling on the government to stand down, Czechia's withdrawal from NATO and friendly relations with Russia.
This is happening all over Europe. 2 days it was Romania. Last weekend Germany and France. The NATO goon squad better pull back from its N@zi lackeys in Ukranian or the lose its goon squad ruling out any more carpet bombing campaigns against Afghan farmers, Iraqi oil workers, Libyan shepards and etc.

there is a possibility that civilians and civilian building were hit by fragments of Russian missiles shot down by western air defense systems. Only a possibility, but we will never know, because Zelensky has banned all media in Ukraine that he doesn’t control.
He's also banned Ukrainians from uploading footage of the strikes. Because of the lack of civilians being killed doesn't make for 'good optics' for Western audiences.

NY Times casting doubt on the effectiveness of Russian missiles because 'only' 19 people were killed. And G7 and UN condemn Russia for possible war crimes..... Couldn't make this stuff up. Open barbarism is upon us and they don't even try to disguise the fact anymore.

yes, instead of entering the correct target coordinates, they’re entering the number of wash & rinse cycles
This is coping mechanism. Just because you don't like it doesn't change the fact they are a powerful civilization. Though not sure why so many Anglo-Americans are so upset by the fact. Maybe because the very year USA became the major capitalist power, the Russian Revolution closed off a very large part of the world to capitalist exploitation? The American ruling class is furious but why does the average worker have a problem?
Anyway, best to just leave them alone. No coups, no military alliance bases near their borders. No meddling in their internal affairs. Do that and the Russians just drink vodka, talk about Lenin and be happy. But don't do it and they become deadly serious.

Abandoning washing machines on the field of battle should have an especially harsh penalty.
The Russians are so smart they can get chips from washing machines to power hypersonic missiles. NATO powers still can't get them working with the latest Sillicon Valley chips.

Ukraine is running out of fighting age men but it's ok because Washington and Brussels have found novel solution. From October 1 Ukrainian females of fighting age are forbidden to leave the country and are to be conscripted. Except like the for fighting age guys, they will be able to pay a steep fee to get out of conscription. But in the interests of equality, at least US/NATO style equality, pregnant women and mothers of young kids won't be spared from conscription.
Ruling out women or pregnant women from combat would be a bad move. What's would stop Ukranian guys identifying as women and getting pregnan? The regime may be #azi friendly but they aren't bigots.

What % of the population has been vaccinated now? Weird how they don't seem to be slowing infections.
-3 ( +2 / -5 )
One dose of vaccine does not make a person vaccinated against delta. It has been shown that two doses are necessary against this variant,
You are seriously pushing on with the, by this point, delusion any of the vaccines in use in Japan are effective? They aren't. It's only a question of whether they help prevent severe illness. Still too early to say.

Last week Tues number of tests conducted was 9928 for positive number of 3709, a positivity ratio of 37.4%
Today number of tests is reduced by 4840 from last week (today test no is 5088) and positive no at 2612 - positivity ratio of 51.3%
Sounds like only sick people are submitting themselves for testing. How strange.....

No but perhaps they should test those that request like other developed by do.
Right. So if I go into the hospital with a torn muscle, as I did a month ago, they should test me for coronavirus? A very nice lady approached me when I went in. She asked me in English about any coronavirus sympyoms. I told her it was an injury, not sickness. The end result was that the incompetent morons didn't test me for corinavirus.

Should Japanese authorities grab perfectly well people off the street and forcibly swab them for the virus?

In a way, the Soviet Union is as much to blame as the imperialist powers for making the Olympics just as much a political contest as a sporting contest. Way back they basically said, "the imperialist powers are taking this seriously. We should win the most gold medals and then see how much they want to politicise it."
They should have ignored them or set up a parallel competition and made it about sport.
