..... to pose for a quick pic, and then continued on his way...

...after muttering, Long live the russians.

Are you sure? He did mutter something, and then someone else shouted something in Russian that ended with "Russia". I think the "Long live the Russians" subtitle referred to that other person's shouting, not the dad's muttering.

Anyway, long live the Russians...

I finally saw what all the fuss is about:

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-01-27/australian-open-tennis-sport-novak-djokovic-father-russian-flag/101898320

And it really is quite insignificant. Seems that he just stopped next to someone holding a Russian flag to pose for a quick pic, and then continued on his way...

He never touched the flag. Why are people making a big fuss about it?

I automatically assumed that the guy in the pic was Djokovic's dad, until I read the caption: "A man wearing Russia's pro-war "Z" symbol watches..."

Why doesn't the article show a picture of Djokovic's dad doing what they say he did?

Posted in: Kishida to consider visiting Ukraine if right conditions are met See in context

Nice to see anti-US, anti-Japan comments dropping off a bit. They stand with Ukraine. As does the UK, the Baltics, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, Australia, South Korea, Taiwan, and the rest of the Allies.

Stand with Ukraine? All they are doing is throwing more gasoline on the fire and extending the death and destruction of Ukraine.

Mr. Zelenskiy is an exceptional leader of our times. And the Ukrainians fight fascists for all of us. Love and respect to Ukraine.

Exceptionally bad. He sacrificed his country and citizens for NATO's proxy war...

"It's important for Novak to address this situation," he said. "He should apologize for what has happened, and condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine."

Why? There is absolutely nothing wrong with being pro-Russian and expressing it.

That's a very fair point. I think that flying the flag of one's country during an international sports event is something that every sports fan should be able to do. Using sports to make an ideological statement, like this guy is doing with the 'Z,' is inappropriate.

Do you feel the same way about a non-Ukrainian flying the Ukrainian flag?

Infections down a lot, while deaths stay high.

There tends to be a delay (about 2 weeks?) between infection rate and death rate, so deaths should come down soon.

And it also depends on how they define "coronavirus-related deaths"...

By the time the tanks are ready and the Ukrainian soldiers sufficiently trained to use them, the war will likely be over. Maybe Poland will be able to hold onto the supplied tanks...

Posted in: Billions still exposed to toxic trans fat: WHO See in context

Amazing how many artificial alternatives have been touted as healthier than the original then turn out to be nothing of the sort...

I do not recall transfats ever being sold as healthy.

Might depend on our age. I recall margarine being promoted for a very long time as a healthy alternative to butter. It really should be banned. Today, many are talking about banning it, but somehow it's still very widespread (pun not intended)...

Posted in: Japan defense buildup helps triple primary deficit projection See in context

Japan plans to boost defense spending by 43 trillion yen over the next five years from fiscal 2023 to enhance its defense capabilities to better cope with threats from its neighbors China, North Korea and Russia.

By increasingly going along with America's proxy conflicts and increasing their "defense" spending, the only thing Japan accomplishes is to give reasons for those countries to threaten it.

The best thing Japan could do is kick out the US military and take care of its own defenses and alliances without being pressured (ordered) by the US.

That would save a ton of money and help calm things down.

Butter is the supreme sandwich spread, prove me wrong!

Yes, butter is great.

I sometimes prepare a mix of butter and olive oil, which is soft enough for easy spreading right out of the fridge...

Posted in: Britain's former PM Boris Johnson visits Kyiv, pledges help See in context

It does nothing to undercut the fact that the Russians are getting their collective buttocks (or another term if one wishes - my typos could be a hint) handed to them by the UA...

That is indeed the narrative being pushed to help legitimize the funds and weapons being given to Ukraine, and to prevent widespread desertion. But it is crystal clear that Ukraine is losing badly, and is on the verge of complete collapse. Pretty soon, Russia will be able to complete their mission, regardless of how many tanks the west gives Ukraine.

There was an analist today who made the following very accurate summary:

Russia used to be thought to have the 2nd most powerful army on the planet. Today it's not the 2nd best army in Ukraine.

Yes, I'm sure most analists would say that, but analysts say that Russia has crushed the Ukrainian (+ NATO) defenses...

I usually get updates about world events and/or medical issues by visiting the following online: The Duran, The New Atlas, TrialSite News, Garland Nixon, MedCram, Dr John Campbell, Peak Prosperity, IHU Méditerranée-Infection, Redacted (Natali & Clayton Morris), The Jimmy Dore Show, Viva Frei, Kim Iversen, CBCニュース...

Johnson shares much the responsibility for all this death and destruction. Whenever Zelensky appears to be willing to negotiate with Russia, Johson shows up to change his mind.

With the Ukrainian defenses collapsing, how can they prolong this further.

I think you mentioned that you follow Alex Jones.

Is he a good source to get closer to the truth?

I don't think so. I always thought of him as more of a gatekeeper and/or well poisoner.

Posted in: Why people believe in conspiracy theories and how to respond See in context

People believe in conspiracy theories because they are ignorant and get carried away with any stupidity that becomes a trend..

Like those who believed in the Russian collusion in the 2016 US election, or that the Hunter Biden laptop was Russian disinformation, or ...

One reason that people believe in so-called "conspiracy theories" is that the mainstream narrative is often so obviously false. Lately these "conspiracy theories" have often been referred to as spoiler alerts, because they end up being true...

Posted in: Russia's Lavrov compares West's approach to Russia with Hitler's 'Final Solution' See in context

the West doesn't care that Russia continues to exist.

Actually, they have been obsessed with bringing Russia down for a long time. They get in the way of America's hegemony. They prevented the West from doing to Syria what they did to Iraq, Lybia...

Nobody had a problem with Russia when Yeltsin was president, for instance.

Yeltsin was the West's puppet; he ruined Russia.

Posted in: Japan to roll out plans to back Ukraine at 'appropriate time,' U.S. official says See in context

Kishida last week stressed the importance of standing up to Russia's invasion, saying that if a unilateral change to the status quo went unchallenged...

This whole conflict started because Russia finally decided to challenge NATO's unilateral changes to the status quo

the same would happen elsewhere, including in Asia

Yes, that is what is worrying me, that the west will set up Taiwan (and maybe Japan) to be the next Ukraine against those who challenge America's hegemony.

The right to protest is an important one. Many fought a war to keep Europe free. The costs in human lives were enormous.

Do you truly believe that is the reason they fought?

Wow, each cop only shot twice! If this was the US, they each would have completely unloaded their gun; and maybe reloaded and continue shooting.

Schwab is on record as telling us that "You will be happy and own nothing."

Well, will the Davis elite be giving away their gas guzzling private jets?

I think not…

Indeed, he did not say "We will be happy and own nothing."

Anyway, many so-called conspiracy theories are actually 6-month spoiler alerts.

They did take a break, albeit not complete, while Trump was in power... but the swamp then got back in control.
