Posted in: North Korea calls U.S. pledge of tanks to Ukraine 'unethical crime' See in context

The only thing that is truly unethical is Russian troops in an orgy of killing, rampaging through the towns and countryside, stealing Ukrainian lands.

That is the reality, despite the changing series of reasons issued by the Kremlin mouthpiece.

Ot would be unethical NOT to oppose that aggression, by any means.

Just read a fairly detailed report in the J news saying that the damage to bow and stern is extensive. Divers reported a list of problems with sonar bulb, rudders and propellers, and have partly succeeded in blocking the oil leak with putty.

Interesting. I have been watching these developments for some time now and commend Toyota’s efforts in this direction. I would really love to have a hydrogen car one day very soon. Fuel cell, or straight burn.

Posted in: Melted snow likely cause of northeastern Japan landslide: expert See in context

Desert, I did see an actual zonal map shown on the TV news, with aerial photos of 50 years ago, 30 years ago and today, and a local map with that particular part shaded red as a land slip danger zone. It is possible however that the map was drawn up more recently, i.e. after the houses were built there.

Posted in: Melted snow likely cause of northeastern Japan landslide: expert See in context

The landslide occurred because of melting snow.

The tragedy occurred because the construction company built houses in a place known to be at risk.

They were along a ‘no-entry’ section of the breakwater, which is signposted and fenced off because it is a known dangerous place to fish.

The authorities took three hours to respond, and find them floating within the harbor. RIP

There’s an easy way to get sanctions lifted, but he has chosen the impossible way.

As long as the people make more sacrifices, he can force them onwards…

Posted in: China sends 71 warplanes, 7 ships toward Taiwan in 24 hours See in context

Despite the increased tensions and the PLA armed forces caught in the stupid ratchet trap of their own bravado, the government of China actually sounds quite level-headed and reasonable, against the background of what Russia is doing in Ukraine.

As I suspected, it’s probably more of a translation problem, as the Japanese doesn’t differentiate. Possibly suspected of ‘leaking state secrets’ with a s, might have been a safer way to phrase it.
