One thing is for sure.. Yakuza would never do that kind of crime

Actually, that is not sure at all, as Yakuza do that kind of crime. However, of course nobody here knows if they involved or not. It all speculation.

Alpha , Delta , Omicron…. With each new variant, they are much more contagious and much more deadly than the previous one. These are just basic indisputable facts a

....less deadly than the previous variants. Which is actually the natural way virus pandemics develop.

“We will offer flowers every day until the end of the battle, in the hopes that Russia and Ukraine will regain peace as soon as possible.”

And that is a controversial statement? In what world? It does not even take sides. Looks like the Japanese media too have whipped many people into an anti-russian hate frenzy with their shallow reporting.

Posted in: More than 1.2 million refugees flee Ukraine See in context

I would be careful with the "Ukrainian" label. Safe bet is that among this wave of refugees there is a lot of migrants heading to Europe that have been bottlenecked in at the Belarus and other borders. The German government already said they will wave any form of passport or other requirement for these "Ukrainians". No surprise.

During Trump's office, Putin was busy upgrading his military and filling his war coffers. He has spent the last two years planning his invasion and war. He lied to Trump too.

So should Putin downgrade and defund his military? Do you expect the same from all political leaders?

As for "planning his invasion", the lack of historical context by many is astonishing.

Putin has made it clear that NATO expansion into the Ukraine is an existential threat to his country, which can not be tolerated. And that is something that every Russian president would have to decide, not just Putin.

And it is not like this is something that just suddenly appeared last month, as CNN et al would like to tell us.

Here is Noam Chomski from 7 years ago explaining exactly the same:

A lot of people have very short and/or selective memories.

Posted in: Pence says no room in GOP for 'apologists for Putin' See in context

Former U.S. Vice President Mike Pence urged Republicans to move on from the 2020 election and declared that “there is no room in this party for apologists for Putin” as he further cemented his break from former President Donald Trump.

That is a ridiculous misrepresentation. Trump was and is as strongly (and wrongly) anti-russian as all his detractors. Alas, such misrepresentations are no surprise in the current propaganda war.

Given the Biden family's long financial interests in the Ukraine, it is surprising that he hasn't done more. Under Trump, the Russians did nothing. Under Biden's boss before Trump, they took the Crimea.

Just the BIden family? Check out the sons of Romney, Pelosi, and Kerry too. All of them have lucrative connections to Ukrainian energy oligarchs. Quite a coincidence.

That said, I am not buying into the narrative of Trump holding off the the evil Putin that many Trump supporters bandy about. Trump was very anti-russian (if for genuine beliefs or under pressure from the constant Russia hoaxes about him I do not know), and if he had allowed crossing the same red line that triggered Putin now, he would have gotten the same result.

I do not understand while both neocons and neolibs can not stop poking the bear, But eventually the bear wakes up.

"Had it not been for Covid-19, most patients would have survived and continued to enjoy

That is the opinion of your "New Statesman" writer, not a fact.

Fact is, if you are hospitalized with multiple comorbidities, life has not been very enjoyable for you lately. Common sense.

Ergo, misleading, panic-creating numbers.

Hysterical types see these numbers as ‘panic-creating’ because they themselves are prone to panic and in some instances, total hysterical meltdowns.

I see the panic all over the Corona=related threads here and in the newspaper articles. If you dont, good on you.

I didn’t read any panic in the post.

Does it matter what you "detect"?

Fact is, the UK data cited say "Daily numbers of deaths of people whose death certificate mentioned COVID-19 as one of the causes, "

Ergo, misleading, panic-creating numbers.

From the link you posted:

"Daily numbers of deaths of people whose death certificate mentioned COVID-19 as one of the causes, "

I.e. if you are morbidly obese, diabetic, asthmatic, and maybe have late stage cancer to top it off and die, you are counted as "Corona death" if you test positive too. You might want to check your links before basing arguments on them...

You did not check the link then?

It shows the various deaths.

You did not check the recent freedom of information request to the UK Corona dashboard then? It turns out that if you ask for ONLY Corona on the death certificate, instead of just "Corona on the death certificate", removing the comorbidities, the number of deaths drops by 95% or so.

Hence, your panic is cause by looking at "with" Corona data.

Sounds like he planned some sort of revenge against the mother. What must have happened for him to go so far?

Whatever it was, it is irrelevant for us. It is impossible for normal people to understand what goes on in a psychopath head.

Good decision. It is Omicron now, so time to forget the hysteria. Omicron is extremely infectous and very mild. Like the Dr. from South Africa who reported the fist cases said: It is the vaccine we have been waiting for.

Strong adherence to social distancing and other measures to decrease spreading, including vaccination is a much more likely reason for the decrease of the number of cases.

Japanese are not touchy feely and have always been into masks. That would make a difference. About vaccination, pls take note that according to official UK data the vaxxed (with the mRNA/viral vector shots) have been dying at twice the rate of the unvaxxed, so I would not hammer that point too much. General population health is a more important factor imho.

There is no evidence that natural immunity had any role in it.

Wow! Are you claiming natural immunity does not exist? Only for the special case of Corona, or not at all? I really would like to hear that.

According to the police, the man had found the shell when he tore down a relative’s house over 40 years ago and kept it in his own attic ever since. Because he was getting up in years, he wanted to make sure it was safely dealt with before he passed, 

LOL what? His attic was a safe place for this thing for 40 years?
