When will respectable news outlets stop publishing the nonsense put out by the “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights”? This is nothing more than the fantasies of a well known, long term UK resident, anti Assad dissident writing from the kitchen of his two bedroom semi in Coventry. All unsubstantiated. Maybe because it fits the narrative many western government want their people to read?

What is the current total death toll from the Fukushima nuclear disaster?

One.... Yes ONE!

Nuclear power is safe. Building the plants in earthquake zones maybe not so.

Lunar Tunar... thats not how international rugby works... no need for citizenship, birth, parentage or even grand parentage. Just have a rich nation, like Japan, pay you to come and play for a few years and your IN!

Not only Japan, just look at the other team.. not much better! Just red shirts against white shirts...No pride no honour... But lots of money!

I read its a “challenge” from Islander cultures... The Europeans look pretty silly doing it.

Not their culture at all. A little like having the British Lions do a Scottish jig.

Just scrap it and play the game. Scrap the national anthems too as half the players on most teams are foreign.

I worry that the All Blacks unnecessarily tire themselves out doing that ridiculous, silly dance performance before the game.

Posted in: Municipalities expect Tokyo Olympics to bring more foreign visitors See in context

The “huge number of visitors” for the Olympics is a myth. Soccer , Rugby and even cricket have traveling fans but athletics are a bit thin on the ground. Maybe the thousands of 50km walk fans or archery buffs will turn up. Or even the masses of wheelchair basketball fans? Most of the other sports have more important tournaments... Soccer in the Olympics? Outside of Japan nobody cares!

London had less visitors than usual during the games.

This years Rugby World Cup will probably have more fans arriving than the 5 ring farce next year.

If you watch carefully, even those not glued to the screens on their keitai, do not really look where they are going. At least 1 in 3 are looking at the ground about 2 meters in front. Its the worst place to walk. So slow and adjusting for “zombies” not paying attention.

Its not Japan...

At the last World Cup, only Uruguay and Georgia had 100% native squads.

Its teams like Tonga, Fiji and Samoa that lose players.

Come on world rugby. Sort it out!

Surely, with 8 of the starting 15 players being non-Japanese the team should be renamed “International 15”!

In terms of propaganda output South Korea is only just behind its brother in the north.

.If that had fought a little better/harder in the 1930s and 40s then this problem would not be happening now.

The eligibility rules for international rugby are ridiculous. They should seriously just drop the names of the teams and call them the “red team” for Wales, “Black team” for New Zealand and “International 15” for Japan...... If you are Samoan, you should be playing for Samoa and no other team!

Posted in: EU, France, Germany and UK urge Iran to reverse uranium decision See in context

The Iranians have no interest in a bomb and never did. Trump is just doing the bidding of the zionists and Saudis....

The war with Iraq only resulted in more influence in Iraq for the Iranians. The US backed Saudi initiative in Syria failed miserably resulting in yet more influence for the Iranians. The Zionists disastrous adventure in Lebanon in 2006 resulted in Iranian backed Hezbollah giving them a very bloody nose. And the ongoing shame in Yemen where Saudi Arabia’s Pakistani mercenaries (also known as the Saudi army) are losing to the Shia militias backed (but not by much) by Iran.

Nobody really wants a war with Iran. Especially the world economy which would quickly go down the toilet.
