Posted in: China says U.S.-Japan actions are stoking division See in context

China has no right to speak.

The Chinese people need to take back the government and let the current regime die.

China has lost all creditability in all the world and is the worlds biggest threat to freedom.

Look what they are doing in Philippians and other places in the world with it's insatiable greed and hunger.

Just opened up JT for the first time today and saw the head line.

Koike pledges utmost anti-virus steps to deliver 'wonderful' Tokyo Olympics

Then.

Tokyo reports 591 coronavirus cases; Osaka records record-high 1,130

Not so wonderful, Olympics (save face). Get the virus under control. Where are the priorities.

I know, I know all said before.

Posted in: Biden tightens some gun controls; says much more needed See in context

If you want to eliminate gun violence in America fresh new radical idea's are needed that must extend beyond the next century.

I challenge anyone to read the following below. We have politized gun violence to death. Its not a party problem its an American problem and mass shootings and thugs with guns killing others in rich and poor communities must stop. Its not a race on race problem anymore. Its an American on American problem from the start of the country.

Japan does not have mass shootings. Why?

Pretty good read below.

https://www.preventioninstitute.org/focus-areas/preventing-violence-and-reducing-injury/preventing-violence-advocacy

Whos responsible?

Columbus and other early explorers were probably the first Europeans to bring guns to the New World, archaeologists will say.

And the arquebus was a long-barreled, musket-like weapon that was most likely the first personal firearm on mainland America. Hence forth America has been a gun culture.

I agree with Biden as a Republican on this.

“The idea that we have so many people dying every single day from gun violence in America is a blemish on our character as a nation,” Biden said during remarks at the White House.

“America is drowning in guns. Even if they were all banned from midnight tonight, it would probably take a century or two to get them all out of circulation and maybe not even then.”

Stewart Stafford

“The job facing American voters… in the days and years to come is to determine which hearts, minds and souls command those qualities best suited to unify a country rather than further divide it, to heal the wounds of a nation as opposed to aggravate its injuries, and to secure for the next generation a legacy of choices based on informed awareness rather than one of reactions based on unknowing fear.”

 Aberjhani, Illuminated Corners: Collected Essays and Articles Volume I.

I sold some of my collector firearms last year as well had a quite a few destroyed, as I plan to stay in Japan forever.

This pathogen with its abilities to pick up its spreading reaches and morph in to new variants worse than the previous. How can it not be looked at as altered or an enhanced pathogen? Its perfect as far as pathogens go, And its not bio-weaponry. Its a virology weaponry.

Again the Chinese government and its puppet the W.H.O. can talk about missing elements or variables and the (missing link) all they like. The fact is I do not buy it. This pathogen was engineered and you do not need to be a Virologist to see this.

Anyone else find the opening of this story a head scratcher?

Japanese health authorities are concerned that variants of the coronavirus are driving a nascent fourth wave in the pan....etc and so forth.

Like, the governing body was not concerned before? Like mildly concerned? Or more concerned cause of the up coming Olympics?

Can the Japanese team hang in with U.K. boys? Or Europe in general? I am not soccer (football) expert by no means and we have the Sagentosu team here in the town. Tosu. I work in Tosu. But I would like to see the Europe teams get a bit more competition. What I would really like to see is my American team just get better. We suck all the time in this game. Can not deny it football is widely popular all over the world. I did enjoy my first live game watching Sagentosu win last week. Am I in love with the game? not really. I think its a like fine wine or that coffee one drinks that an acquired taste. I was told recently its football mate, Not soccer. My gosh serious fans so sensitive.

Posted in: North Korea snaps back at Biden over criticism of launches See in context

The North will not stop no matter what. Why? They have China. They have China backing everything they do. Russia and Iran as well. Giving them solid fuel tech. China pushes towards total world dominance on so many fronts. On Thursday Biden in a phone call to Boris Johnson told the PM. That he and Biden should prevent China from passing the United States to become the most powerful country in the world, vowing to invest heavily to ensure America prevails as well the U.,K. in the ever-growing rivalry between the world's two largest economies. North Korea is the Chinese puppet. China's alter ego if you will.

@Pukey2. What are you talking about? Trump put operation warp speed in motion and due to that program. Front line Doctors and nurses have been inoculated and can work to heal patients and ease pain and at the end for some (ease the suffering). The benefits of this program were re-packaged by the Biden admin and given another name. Biden is using many of Trumps administration policies and and he is taking full credit for them. Taking credit for the pervious administrations work. Its always been that and always will in American politics.

Many hated Trump we all get that. But to say this man does not love the American people or love America and has no heart to see people suffering from the virus is non sense.

Back on the North. As long as a Dem/or Repub POTUS sits in office and opposes or contests the North so called right to protect itself. In five to ten years it will not matter. The North is making hella strides in it's nuclear and missile programs. There a nuclear player just like the rest soon. And insulating China.

North Korea is just part of Beijing's plan for inching closer towards world and economic dominance.

LOL. A little slap on the wrist. The world can not turn without China. They already won and China is winning everyday. Do I like it? Hell no. In ten years Mandarin will be a required second langue discipline in schools. Watch and see. The end of currency is coming or the way we use it in our daily lives. Or the way we use it daily. save it daily. Spend it daily. Do not comply? Virus city buddy. That's the future.

There is only two ways to deal with China. Eliminate the current government and put the people in control.

Two. Well. I think we all know and its not pleasant thing to think about. Japan was the only country to survive or be attacked by such weapons.

If you wanted to set China back? Needed to stop them ten years ago and China's global spy network.

Its a lost cause. No country or its leaders has the courage to stand up to them and do what needs to be done period. (coordinated).

Sanctions are a joke on China. They could care less. On to the next.

This was foul. Rude and disrespectful. It angers me to no end too. Its like people sitting in designated seats on trains and buses for expecting Moms or the injured or disabled. And I am vocal about it too. I am an American. But I love tis country so much I have naturalized and now a Japanese citizen. Please do not come here and exercise your bad habits from your own country. Throw your rubbish where it belongs. What ever punishment this British citizen is facing. Its well deserved. I have seen lots of British tourists come to Fukuoka and be stellar on mannerisms here. And for the record I would even go out and say most citizens from the U.K. or Europe are really polite and clean up after themselves and welcomed here in my city.

Try this none sense in Fukuoka and your going to nailed big time. The FPD don't play man.

Especially with butt flinging and smoking out in public. Bento in the mail box. Come on man. Get a life.

Now, no ones feelings are bent.

Shouldn't we be talking about the missiles? Oh that's right. Routine as usual for the hermit kingdom. Lets all put blinders on. No threat here. One day. One of these missiles will go array and hit Japanese soil.

Posted in: Large Chinese destroyer spotted in waters near Japan See in context

Some people obviously can not read.

Three Chinese naval vessels including a large guided-missile destroyer have been spotted in the Strait of Tsushima, north of Japan's Kyushu main island.

In case you missed it. @Mickelicious.

North of Kyushu Island close to where the CFAS Sasebo is and readying for deployment or some ships in deployment and out and about. Parts unknown.

Left MCAS iwakuni the CAG and where F-35's are kept.

Right is CFAS Sasebo. So what you have is three Chinese vessels 259 KM with in reaching CFAS Sasebo.

And 379 KM from reaching MCAS Iwakuni. With its armaments from current last known position.

34.918314, 129.639642 at said position right off the coast of Busan.

The primary armament on these class off Chinese ships are missiles carried in 112 universal vertical launch cells (VLS) And 64 cells forward and 48 cells aft. The same VLS model is used on the Type 052D destroyer which is believed to be an implementation of the GJB 5860-2006. The longest variant, with 9-metre cells, is likely used. The Type 055 is expected to carry HHQ-9 surface-to-air missiles, YJ-18 anti-ship cruise missiles, CJ-10 land-attack cruise missiles, and missile-launched anti-submarine torpedoes upon entering service. Potentially, the larger cells may also carry anti-ship ballistic missiles.

Ask any XO of any American or US ship stationed in Japan and they will tell you straight formattable battle class destroyers and no push overs for AGEIS destroyers. I would feel much better knowing the USS Port Royal or the USS Princeton was around.

No this is a major provocation on the sovereignty of Japan and should be treated as such.

Its is something to worry about and I expect the Japanese government are preparing a strong protest of words.

Yes, I have nice curtains as well. I nice blue shade from Nitori.

Though my military and country have the agility to so. And I am assuming you are hinting towards a nuclear war?

@ Carl N Jpn Gcjp. This is an just a moronic course with China as they are nuclear as well.

@Nobumasa san, that is an outcome that should be explored with China greatly and your strategy makes sense to me. As a former military strategist. I would be looking at sanctions like never seen before. and total economic full on war. I would starve them out.

There is only one way to win a Chinese war. Strength in numbers.

Full destruction from with in. That's it. Cut them off and starve them to death. The Chinese people will rise and over throw the the current regime. The real power of China is its normal everyday oppressed worker.

Posted in: China protests over Japan-U.S. statement on human rights; blasts U.S. 'evil past of genocide' See in context

Everything I just read. Is a distraction from the real issues China should be facing and real questions China should be answering.

Democrats and China align, after the summit is over were going to hear what wild success it was and how these issues are on the way to being squashed. Under the new leadership U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken. He needs a win. All fabricated.

"no issue is more central to the goals and policies” of the Biden administration than “addressing systematic racism"

Seriously? Your going with that?

Biden word for word.

—“Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

— “You got the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” (That’s in reference to President Obama.)

— “Unlike the African-American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly diverse attitudes about different things.”

— “In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”

You have to admit that Biden is a bigot. After reading the damning quotes out of his mouth in the above, for them not to do so is a sign of ignorance, plus a lack of political honesty and integrity.

The only thing that should be discussed with China and the question that should be put forthright from Biden himself face to face with Xi Jinping eye to eye is.

1.) Did you release this virus covertly to declare a global genocide upon the world for economic dominance?

2.) The virus originated from your country China. What do you intend to do for reparation's? (pay the money)

3.) Are you going to back off Taiwan, H.K. Japan?

4.) Are you prepared to go to war with world coalition?

China has immense explaining to do. PERIOD!

I miss Pompeo. At least we did not have this current S.O.S. Starbucks drinking democratic tree hugging, Cancel culture hand picked Biden Puppet anymore. While Chucky and Nancy and the rest of these Dems pull the strings and try to pull the wool over our eyes.

And slam there own agenda. I can so clearly see what Dems are trying to do here. Can you?
