@OntheTrail

Hello Numan, I think we agree then, a defense force should be able to protect the country from a balloon.

I thought we agreed that most people on this thread do not know #$"& about aeronautics or ballooning and are just blowing hot air!

Sounds like the US needs to spend more on the military if they can't shoot down an errant "weather balloon" over one of the least populated areas of the nation.

However, it could just be they someone called a bluff and they don't want to set a precedent of countries shooting down CIA assets, er.., weather studying devices.

When a weather balloon went rogue almost 25 years ago, fighter jets fired 1,000 rounds at it and couldn't bring it down

What Trump and Haley said is perfectly legitimate.

If an enemy aircraft breaches your airspace, and it doesn't heed or follow instructions to leave immediately (which a balloon obviously can't do) ... you shoot it down.

And if you've read the article, you already know that the balloon is roughly the size of two school buses. Plus, it's a balloon.

The likelihood of any debris causing any injury or serious damage is slight -- especially if it's shot down over an area that's not densely populated.

Then there are the real experts!

Unfortunately for dump (but fortunately for the world), the Joint Chiefs told him it was the nuclear button but it just brought I’m diet cokes and 2 scoops of ice cream.

Maybe that’s why they “fell in love.”…

trump fell in love with lil Kim because trump had a large loan with a North Korean backed corporation.

The loan has already been verified, and trump kept it secret, before and while he was president!

The Manchurian candidate that just kept on giving to all the Middle Eastern, Eastern European, and East Asian dictators!

Posted in: Suspect in attack on sociologist Miyadai killed himself, police say See in context

Although the suspect left a note which included an apology to his family and friends for causing them difficulties, he did not outline a reason for killing himself or for the attack on Miyadai.

Police are continuing to investigate the suspect's motive in the case. He was not a graduate of the university, and Miyadai has said he has "no idea" who the suspect was.

Police had released a series of images of the suspect including one showing him riding a bicycle.

Investigators said earlier that they obtained DNA that appeared to be his from a plastic bottle he was seen throwing away in security camera footage about 2 to 3 kilometers from the scene.

I do not know what happened, but the evidence seems circumstantial, and the police could easily contaminate the bottle with DNA evidence from the scene of the suicide.

Did the suicide note even mention a confession of attacking the professor/author?

It is really hard for a dead man to defend himself!

Posted in: China resumes issuing ordinary visas for Japanese citizens See in context

Like other's have mentioned, China is not popular with Japanese tourists at the moment, but Japan is still popular and necessary for Chinese tourists/business owners to visit.

Therefore, China wants Japan to allow more Chinese into the country. They are easing restrictions first hoping that Japan will follow suit!

That sounds like "phallus envy" from little Kim. His hermit kingdom can't supply that kind of fire power, so he looks weak in the eyes of his generals, people and his new buddy "lil Puti."

If Putin loses this conflict, it also makes all his allies in this campaign losers, too! Kim's family name will be tarnished. His sister might even usurp him!

Posted in: Fighting heats up in Ukraine's east and north after tank pledges See in context

Training combat hardened Ukrainian troops how to use new equipment will not be as challenging as people realize especially with an effective support system coming from Western countries. The US or any other Western country will allow Ukraine to embarrass them by failing with their tanks. If their equipment fails it is bad for business or the military industrial complex. The tanks need to perform to sell more.

Ex. Turkey wants to buy US F-16s not Russian or Chinese jets. They do not want a Chinese made aircraft carrier.

The problem with all this new equipment going to Ukraine will be the maintenance. However, the same is true for Russia.

Logistics play a greater role in long term wars.

Posted in: Goldman Sachs signals partial retreat from consumer banking See in context

Goldman Sachs do not like being told what to do. More consumer products mean more oversight. They will not be able to steal their clients money and spend it on hookers and blow ("Wolf of Wall Street") then blame it on the market.

The average consumer will be more watchful of their smaller amounts of income and quicker to report any suspicious wrongdoing.

This could exposed their other possible wrongdoings!

@Sven Asai

Anyway, avoid criminal activities and any timespan of detention or interrogation won’t affect you so very much in general.

Unless you got a job or family that you care about. Basically, your job is finished whether you are guilty or not!

Ego Sum Lux Mundi

The Asian and Arab nations have already taken Russia’s side. The African nations don’t really matter, but they will do so as well. I expect that more than a few European nations will follow suit once it becomes abundantly clear to even the most casual observer that NATO has zero chance of winning the war. And when I say zero, I mean ZERO. None whatsoever.

Based on a comparison of the technological and industrial capacities, the United States and the UK have about the same chance of defeating the Sino-Russian alliance as Japan had of defeating the US/UK alliance in WWII. Which is just one reason why no American or European should lift a finger, let alone risk his life, for Clown World and its wicked disorder.

LOL!

Laws to protect one of Japan's national treasures, Manga! The special interest groups supporting Manga firms are quite fierce!

When old oyajis are not sleeping in meetings or at hostess bars, they are reading manga to pass the time of being incompetent leaders of society and industry.

Posted in: Japan online watchdog gets power to request removal of harmful content sites See in context

Basically, they want the power to remove any content that the J-government or their cronies do not like.

For example:

1) Criticizing the LDP of Japan on JT

2) Exposing the LDP and corporate corruption (no more Moonies, Abe, or Ghosn scandals)

The Japanese government has more in common with the CCP than they would like to admit!

Japan's legal system is based on the wartime Japan and the Gestapo! They have not change the police system since they were part of the first modern "axis of evil".

That is the reason the police can still kidnap someone for 3 weeks without anyone being formally arrested or informing the outside world that they are ok.

Foreigners have the right to immediately demand that their embassy being informed of detainment. I suggest that everyone foreigner exercise that right once detained.
