Sadly, in the current state of affairs, in the US today, it already IS happening in a manner of speaking. THe immigrants looking to enter the US from South and Central America are being held in "containment" camps and facilities.

Well the Japanese in the US were all legal immigrants/citizens, these immigrants from South and Central America are all illegal immigrants, there is no comparison, none.

"Great. So maybe I'll go soon. Singapore is fun for a couple of days"

That's the catch "couple of days", try living/working there, you will immediately run back to Japan.

Nice! After their stellar performance against Putin's invasion force, HIMARS now strike fear into the hearts of current and reformulated communists equipped with stone-age Soviet weaponry. LOL.

Standard propaganda and a very pathetic one, Russian weaponry is stone age, right, try to do better than this..

Charles, who will be the head of state for the U.K. and 14 other countries, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea..

Refresher for anyone who thought that colonialism had ended...

INDIAN PRIME MINISTER NARENDRA MODI

"Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will be remembered as a stalwart of our times

While Modi is walking the politically correct line, his foreign minister was/is openly speaking on the $45 trillion the British looted from India, matter of time before he starts walking the reparations line..

The Soya Strait is NOT between Honshu and Hokkaido. It is between Sakhalin and Hokkaido. Who writes this crap? Obviously someone whose geography lessons failed miserably.

That's the AP narrative, In the narrative facts are subtly modified to favor one side, in this case Japan.

Oh and dinesh voluntarily pleaded guilty and was convicted. As I recall the crime wasn’t “disliking a book”.

Oh.. so you know and followed that case, in that case you know that the only option he had was to plead guilty, that is they forced him to cut a deal.. else the legal ramifications would have been much stiffer.

The former two-term U.S. president had already won a pair of Grammy Awards -- for audio versions of his memoirs "The Audacity of Hope" and "Dreams from My Father"

Well could have also added that any critique of these memoirs landed you into legal ramifications, the conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza found it out the hard way.

Kulkarni would only say that his script was a "beautiful story...

How is a re-make a.k.a copied script a beautiful story, nothing original comes out of the so called Bollywood these days, sun is anyway setting on this gangster controlled industry, In it's next iteration hopefully we get to watch some authentic original stuff.

Posted in: The age has ended when simply producing quality items without making other efforts leads to good sales. See in context

Even in automobiles, Japanese brand now compete on prices while Korean brand competes on quality and performance.

I will second that, even in India the Japanese brands are mostly catering to the low budget segment, while Korean brands are competing on quality, performance, design, features..and fast closing the gap with the European premium segment..

*Former NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, who spent 340 continuous days aboard the International Space Station in 2015 and 2016, said that the Russian statement “could be just more bluster,” noting that ”after 2024" is vague and open-ended.*

Yep, 2024 election results will determine the final decision..

Yeah, right.

"average annual salary of IT engineers in Japan is at ¥4.53 million....

I am talking about the average salaries of the skilled engineers, there is big difference between the skilled engineers and the average engineers.

Posted in: Twitter, in Musk fight, posts surprising drop in revenue See in context

with the number of people using the platform on the rise..

The number of people using other similar platforms is definitely on the rise, on Twitter this rise would the fake bot accounts. Musk's agenda it seems was to expose these fake bot accounts which could be as high if not more than 50%. Now Twitters 90% revenue is based on advertisements, this drop is probably due to Twitter loosing its appeal as the advertising medium.

If they're lucky, they'll get a 2 year visa. If they're really lucky, they'll get a 2 year extension, and then hold to go home and never come back.

Plus, 180,000 yen a month for doing highly specialized work 60 hours a week..

No such thing, for the skilled the avg salaries start between 10-15M, and PR option is available after 3 yrs.. but majority of the skilled types do not stay and either move to US/Australia or go back to India..

Halving his weight would do far more to protect him than wearing a mask.

Which is fine, but not exactly as easily done. Lots of people are also at an increased risk by smoking but saying they should just quit is not going to solve that problem.

In most cases over eating, smoking addiction are mental states.. does not take much to change that lifestyle.. thanks in part to this virus, many so many have changed there lifestyle.

Webb compiled the composite shot in 12.5 hours, achieving well beyond what its predecessor the Hubble Space Telescope could in weeks

Not weeks but about 11 days, not very different from Hubble's UDF, now exoplanets is where JWST will make the difference, Tabby's star will be a good start.

Which means that the vaccine No 1, 2 and 3 do not protect us now from getting hospitalized...

Dawn of realization is finally kicking-in, your healthy immune system is what will protect you, now If the immune system has gone south, then the vaccine will only temp delay but will not protect from hospitalization..

Posted in: G7 leaders united behind Ukraine; aim at Kremlin oil money See in context

And yet, somehow the influence of the G7 has resulted in Russia unable to pay its debts...

Well the US debt is around 23 trillion, it will never get paid, debts in most cases are re-structured and as such are never paid.

The G7 can do little to influence Russia.

Thew anti-west, pro-Russian war-hawks are pleased..

It's not about Russia, it's about the influence of this G7..which in today's world is close to none.. China and India now have far more influence than G7 combined.

That would be the far left...have no clue what's so ever on how to deal directly...and yes many left aligned commentators are openly suggesting that this would have never happened under DT.

Posted in: Global nuclear arsenal to grow for first time since Cold War: think-tank See in context

Unrealistic. However, I do believe that any country that has nuclear weapons and threatens to use them to get their way should indeed be designated as a terrorist, and sanctioned if not be removed from the UN.

Well, going by this logic the US should have been removed from the UN long time back, right.

Posted in: Ukrainian defenders dig in as Russia lines up more firepower See in context

I was very displeased that The Put chose A.V. Dvornikov, dubbed “the butcher of Syria,” to command Russian troops in Ukraine. Under his command it is well documented that chemical weapons and air strikes were used against civilian populations in Syria, resulting in thousands of civilian casualties.

Classic western propaganda.... russian intervention in Syria is what eliminated ISIS..
