China is at the edge of over-bullying for political reasons.

Freedom countries are at the edge of accepting it for the mercantilism of a few.

I will never fly the Max. Period.

Advice from a 30 years experienced captain of my friends!

This aircraft is just completely unbalanced to be managed by a standard pilot crew.

So sad situation!

Like it or not, but this is just triggered by USA drug demand.

Nobody is forcing the Great American guys to consume drugs!

Legalise it maybe?

I would be fine to have the lambda soldiers honoured - regardless of the country - because they did not have many other choices than die.

But at the same time there should be an equal balanced formal blaming to the ones who sent them to the butchery and killing other people.

Basically, why apologising once for committed atrocities is enough while there is a need to honour pompously every year the ones who committed it?

Big HK tycoons pro-Beijing are as much responsible for this mess. 6 families make almost 50% of the HK GDP.

Posted in: About 100 Lawson stores will not open on New Year’s Day See in context

Seriously, who will notice 0.7% closure of these Lawson convenient stores apart from the few ones living in the 100 meters radius, while there are still 7/11 and Familimart in every corners.

If this is not a storm in a cup of tea, I do not understand the meaning of it.

@Luddite

At what time should the test be passed?

At wedding time, before uncertain conception time, after 3 months pregnancy?

In the case of failed test and certificate of parenthood cannot be delivered what are the next step?

Adoption parents test, and so on and son on?

Just being sarcastic because this is so stupid.

Posted in: Fans frustrated as typhoon disrupts World Cup See in context

For anyone who has ever experienced a typhoon, cancelling Saturday games is a no brainer.

Now could they have organised other location +- 1 or 2 days, of course.

Some people may have lost their chance to see the game, but the sportive equity would have remained.

But who care sportive equity actually? Just TV money.

Boooooooo!

Posted in: Trump says he plans to get involved in diplomat's wife case See in context

Trump has really nothing else to do?

Or maybe this diplomat has some knowledge about the Ukraine affair?

Just baseless assumption, but seriously, Trump has really nothing else to do than mediating in a car accident 6,000 KM away in a country that follows credible rule of law?

@JJ Jetplane

Lucky you.

I work for a big international company that applies local low.

Have a look at this BBC link, which I believe is a trustable source.

Posted in: China warns Apple against 'reckless' support of HK protesters See in context

Big companies will have to make a critical choice to surrender to the bully to continue to make big money from cheap labor or to pay more respect to Human Rights including democracy (which most of them claim in their PR).

This is even more valid for the NBA

Posted in: Lam says Chinese military could step in if uprising gets bad See in context

The only thing PCC does not want to see is peaceful protests because it could propagate into China mainland.

This is why I am quite convinced most of the peaceful marches requests are rejected and a minimum of mess has to be maintained to serves the CCTV narrative.

Posted in: Trump's old ways colliding with new realities See in context

The only question that any American should be allowed to get an answer is if any wrongdoing has been committed by Trump. Nothing to do with Right or Left.

Subsidiary question is if Trump can be impeached by threatening whistleblowers following the due reporting process?
