I guess Japanese people won't have to learn Chinese after all. Kono Yohei and Taro are both pro Beijing, Taro's promise of regular talks with Beijing during the debate can only mean one thing, Learn Mandarin, quickly.
Now if only someone less eratic can reverse the decision on AEGIS, given Beijing's puppet launched a missile into the sea a couple days ago. Believe what you like, to me, Beijing was trying to warn the LDP rank n file.

In a country with a record of being wary against vaccination and lowest vaccination rate in the developed world. Kono is the right man for the job, because he won't be forceful (do the job well), and he'll quickly fold to local political pressure. Why waste good vaccination on people who don't want it, save it for LDP cronies. Suga, smart guy.

Upon getting power the Democrats would rather deal with a political foe than the economy or the raging pandemic. And, they wonder why half the country don't trust them.
I guess karma will follow and the other half will soon learn they've been scammed.

Is this even surprising?
Democracy is under attack from within, by those who says they're defending it.
Seriously, Pelosy should be charged for interfering with national security when she was pressuring generals to deny nukes codes to the 'sitting' POTUS.
Defending democracy by censoring and propaganda? That's what totalitarian communist states does.
Incitement of insurrection? The protesters (in particular, the peaceful ones) were there in support of a sitting president, oh duh. Pelosi is the one that should be charged with sedition.
Add weak republicans and there you have it, chaos.
I would be surprised if the Democrats doesn't stuff it up sooner rather than later and end up in the political wilderness for years.

The start of character assassination of an unarmed 14 years veteran. Biden leadership, good luck with unifying the country.

Looks like main stream media has a narrative to peddle to distract from the killing of an unarmed 14 years veteran woman who survived multiple tour of duties in the most dangerous places of the world (but not outside the gate of the swamp).

LOL, Trump got in on Facebook data in the first place, and in his entire term FB continues to peedle fake news, even refusing censoring, now he sees danger? Ah the smell of hypocrisy.

Protests elsewhere is for the removal of a head of state. This protest is for keeping a head of state. These other dictators would be green with envy.

GOP useless and today should be a wake up call for them once and for all.
Hmmmm, the evidence, especially the recent Georgia recording, would say that the swamp (GOP & DEMs) drained Trump.
To me the wake up call is sent out to anyone who is even remotely thinking of getting near the swamp.

Personally, I don't trust any of the Kim family, they're all ruthless, cunning rats. For all we know he could be setting himself up for 2045, he's certainly helping MJI with the plan.

The more international players protecting the use of international waters the better and safer everyone will be in those waters
Come on, 20 years ago this ^ would have been credible. Not any more.
Currently, China fully controls the SCS, even the US (the rightful owner, because USA conquered the entire western Pacific) tip toes around, and nobody even know whether there's nukes on them CCP made military installations.

This proves the CCP is the centre of evil. But worse demonstrates that the UK is weak, and getting weaker. The way this is going, there won't be much respect for British institutions left by the time China is done bending the UK over. So sad...

IMHO, the Biden administration's first priority should be initiating a WHO MKII so good untainted, unpoliticized WHO staff has a bridge to jump accross.
The current WHO has proven to be rotten, and alongside China responsible for the state of mayhem the world finds itself in.

You rub with the CCP, eventually, the CCP will rub you out, when, not if. The WHO has lost all credibility, this just reinforces it.
Look at Australian businesses punished by China, they were China's mouthpiece in Australia, yet first to be punished.

LOL, not sure what to think about more of China bad for security, but good for business gestures out of our reliable alliance partners in the EU.
The EU just jumped in head first to allow China full access to infrastructure, technology and energy, in exchange for EU companies access cheap forced labour (without having to enter into a JV). PR with a forked tongue LOL.
Now, look at Russia. Russian people are very upset at deaths and mayhem due to covid and China rushes to Putin offering to buy everything Russia has to offer, coal, gas, oil.

@Septim Dynasty - your post appears to be a random rant and doesn't show how or why the nikkei would crash.
What's the relationship between Russia, China and the nikkei?
China/Australia trade war? LOL. That's like Micronesia starting a war with USA. Even if coherent, still doesn't explain anything.
@fxgai - I'll be watching it too, but I'll be charting weighted USD vs gold as well. At the moment gold has barely retraced the high of a few years back, during a pandemic, where I would have expected it to go through the roof, but instead, investors are expecting QE, and bond purchases to save the day. More to the point, the Chinese are still hoovering up US treasury, AND the Japanese reserve is still cornering government bonds.
Crash? Can't see it. Citizens if the world indebted for generations, definitely.

Traitor against whom?
Figure it out.
He's a Putin stooge, appears on Russia propaganda chat shows, leaked classified info to nefarious actors that endanger lives of thousands serving the free world.
All before taking into account if the antics he got up to whilst hosted by the Ecuadorian eembassy.
Traitor to humanity for me.

Iran really made fools out of Obama and Biden by doing what Iran promised to do
If what you say is true, then that makes Obama and Biden dumb and dumbest and Trump genius. I'm referring to what the security agencies were warning Obama about, ie funding of terrorists proxies all over the middle east. AND, this is more the reason why Iran can't be trusted, because a deal means Iran will be back to starting terrorism all over the middle east again.
-1 ( +0 / -1 )
I hope Biden has learnt his lesson whilst VP to Obama, everybody warned Obama about the fallout of releasing Iran's money, and the warnings became reality as soon as the moneys were released.
Biden is now in a position to tell the mullahs to go jump, and that they're not trustworthy, given past events. So now, the only question is, will Biden try to affect some payback for Iran making fools out of him and Obama?
-1 ( +0 / -1 )
I don't get the 'crash' predictions, what's the reason/s?
Governments around the world, including Japan are pumping in trillion$ into the economy, reserve banks are printing money like there's no tomorrow, surely this can only mean a massive boost to liquidity and can only result in anything but a crash.
Sure, Japan's economy is skewed towards tourism, but I don't think tourism makes up that much of the Nikkei. Anyway, even if tourism has an impact on the Nikkei, investors have already pulled out of tourism stocks 12 months ago.

Trump didn't go far enough with Iran, he should have sanctioned China for providing Iran help (the same help Pakistan got).
This story also omitted the fact Iran has seized a South Korean tanker ahead of a planned visit by the SK foreign minister, just like when Iran bombed a Japanese tanker ahead of Abe visiting Iran. This go to show that Iran is not at all interested in peace, they're using every foreign visits as an opportunity to demonstrate their goal of scuppering any nuke deal that leaves them without a nuclear weapon in the future.
