Guilty, with a lengthy prison sentence. Notice that the Ukrainian judge did not order his execution, despite clear evidence of the crime. He may thus be available for swap at some future point. Seems like a good result to me, and sets a standard for the Russians to follow..

Finagle’s law at work. Computers make this possible. One “oops” moment with a button, and it’s “uh oh!”

Posted in: Buffalo shooting latest example of targeted racial violence See in context

The first time I experienced racism against me in the form of open hatred because of the color of my skin was at college in the USA. Black people, openly hostile before I had even opened my mouth.

I had not experienced that in East Africa, where people’s eyes were friendly.

There’s history there, and it will take time to wash clean.

Too much to absorb, and the police seem almost powerless.

She must have turned him in. Among the possible reasons must be that he refused to pay what they had agreed.

Putin is between a rock and a hard place. He’d like to tie the whole thing off somewhere; he does not have the strength to go forwards, and pride won’t allow him to go backwards. He’s relocated the populations of territory the Moskovites have now taken, changed the money to rubles and the road signs to Russian names, and announced elections. Should he build a wall around it?

This unstable situation will probably force him to try for the whole hog, at a terrible price in human (and animal) lives all round.

He has opened Pandora’s box.

Posted in: As Putin marks Victory Day, his troops make little gains in Ukraine See in context

“Russia makes few gains” would be negative, but “Russian makes little gains” in the title must surely be a positive slant on the present situation for the Moscow forces.

Motor Racing, (with an atmosphere of Auto Racing)

A lean balanced article, except for the headline. No way Max 'cruised' to victory. He had to fight the whole way to stay ahead of Leclerc who was generally unrelentingly snapping at his heels. Luckily for Red Bull his car, and that of his teammate Perez held together for the race. Murderous viewing time here in Japan, though. Just wish I could have been there in Miami.

The suffering would stop today if V. Putin ordered his troops to stop trashing a neighboring nation and pull back to the border. Anyone who loves their country would do the same to stop the blatant land grab.

Stop the invasion, stop the killing, stop the emptying and flattening of cities, towns and villages, stop the ethnic cleansing, stop the violence and repression. Just go home.

OK there were some neo-Nazi type groups, and some grievances to address, but this is total overkill.

This is the truth, using no political language.

The West supported Russia’s effort to defeat the Nazis on the eastern front, and the West defeated the Nazi forces from the western side. They helped each other defeat real Nazism.

Desert Tortoise, I appreciate your posts above, with your wife’s invaluable experience. Years ago I read The Joy Luck Club and it had me in tears. Thank you.

Surely “Wo he women” means “I and we”… or Me & Us.

Not Cantonese though.

And “Special Administrative Region” has a ‘special’ meaning especially nowadays.

Posted in: Vietnamese woman dies after being found collapsed on street in Tokyo See in context

With no standard size, some oshibori can be quite large. The article does not say whether it was still inside the plastic wrapping, which if so would have blocked her airways.

Posted in: Vietnamese woman dies after being found collapsed on street in Tokyo See in context

Perhaps I phrased it wrongly. Having a Shibori towel stuffed in her mouth seems to me to be either an attempt to relieve an epileptic attack, or a murder with a warning to keep others silent.

Funny there's no mention of the recent massive Turkish incursion into Iraq. Perhaps the Iraqi government is hoping to show that they can deal with the PKK without a Turkish invasion into their territory?

I can understand about half of the various arguments above.

Poor English, poor punctuation and/or poor editing make the remainder too confusing to follow. I genuinely tried to follow everyone. What are you trying to say? Keep it simple, please!
