There is merit to your question.
Over time and unchecked with the DPRK dispersing the Meth/Coke/H-and others to the Yakuza, Triads, Korean Mafia pushing that stuff in provinces, cities & barrios. Dope was everywhere before Dito took power.
Over time unchecked? How many lives ruined? Aquino was weak on drugs and before Dito weak and on the take.
The corruption and drugs will bring down any society over time. Its a cancer that spreads.
The thing people do not realize in Philippians. Yeah lots died. But the ones that did. They had warnings and continued to push and use. So bloody campaign, no more worse that Philippian politics.
Salamat Po! Dito Rodrigo Sana ol! V.P. Go!

He is not a scumbag. He is a colorful leader and we need more like him.
He is very smart. Cunning and clever. He is a killer of drug pushers and people who ruin lives.
He likes big business. He hates the Triads and Yakuza and Korean Mafia who try to bring in corruption.
He wants the dope out of PI. And what wrong with that? He told Obama off. I loved that.
He just wants what best for the Islands.

If I can share a personal experience of my own dealing with virus. (I hope this found helpful)
Back in February (end) start of March. I had felt my allergies were spurring up and wanted to see my doc for a re-script of the usual useless Japanese medicines they give that help to somewhat of a degree.
As a precaution. I was PCR tested and hit positive. I felt nothing. Matter of fact Influenza C which I have had in the past was way way worse. (I though I am gonna die) Anyways, followed Saga's standard procedures. In the hotel 10 days.
You would classify my case as a A-symptomatic case. According to what is known.
As my body generated natural anti-bodies.
Two days ago I had shot 1 of the Moderna, bio-tech Vaccine. My experience with it.
At 1:30 pm injection done.
The next day I woke up I felt no energy in my entire body accompanied with slight depression. (Just felt blue).
Through yesterday I was trying to push through it with a red bull. But that made me feel worse. I threw in the towel and all I wanted was my pillow and blanket. ( big baby) And that is exactly what I did. (crash and burn)
Side effects included.
Loss of taste and smell. (has returned)
Severe nausea with vertigo and dizziness. (totally gone)
Constipation. (Ok now)
Stomach felt bloated. (Feeling hungry now-starving actually)
Fever. Night sweats. (36.0 now)
(Before the crash and burn.)
Decided to take in 2 cartons of OG from 7-11 (3) Advil.
This morning when I woke up I felt fine and my arm was soar from the the needle.
I find the the side affects from the vaccine far far far more worse than the actual virus.
Maybe this information helps somebody or felt the same. It makes you think. What are we really dealing with here. The experience has been just weird.

why the international community is not putting a peacekeeping force in Afghanistan, as was done in the past with these types of situations.
Because NATO & UN is virtually broke. Assets are gong into combating COVID.
I have done allot of studying on the Afghan terrain on the ground and from ( well lets just say a sensitive location.) Many have tried to liberate and hold Afghanistan. We know and have heard it before. It can't be won. It can be actually with the right approach. Military or American/Russian modern military tactics have never worked there. The way to win there is about one thing. One method. Diplomacy is the only way.
US NATO and the world better dig in. Or we know what will follow. Have to keep the dialog going and give and take going.

America and its allies went into Iraq and Afghanistan without an exit plane even though trillion of dollars were spent.
You honestly believe that? You think the world’s strongest
military force on the planet went into this with no exit plan? I am going to tell
you this. Everything you said is spoken from someone outside of the loop and
what is fed to you through media. There was plan. But plans change especially
exit plans change. Battle tactics change. But you know what changes more than
battle filed ergonomics and logistics planning troop movements and withdrawal?
Congress and the senate. If you speak with any military planner. one of the
biggest complaints you'll hear is this. By the time budget is set and plan set
in motion and country comes into fruition. Here we go again with more Dem/Reb
divide. Here we come with more paid for sponsorship TV to program to brainwash
the sheeple in the Matrix. A change of hands. The change of guard.
“Say what you
mean and mean what you say.”
George S. Patton,
The exit and a hand over of democratic sovereign Nation that used
to be oppressed no longer works.
The experiment, the exit. It no longer works. And the question is
why it no longer works.
The answer come with many variables and many challenges and
Unless you sat the table in the war room. Or sat at the table in
any one of the planning rooms in the pentagon. It’s unfair to say there was no
exit plan. The problem is a matter of the heart and money.
As its pains me say this a great deal. America gave up on Afghanistan.
I will agree. Trillions were spent with a viable exit and good exit plan. The
problem is over there. One day the guy you’re counting on to bring you to the
objective. A guy that you spent months years working with, suddenly does a 360
on you and wants you off his lands.
When Lt. Gen. George S. Patton, said this. It was meant from the
private all the way up to the President.
Planning, exiting and warring. Have become so diluted and so hard
to stay on the exit path in a war time situation. Constant flux in the mission
parameters and change to a point the moral of the operation and pulling off a
viable exit nearly impossible. At an acceptable level.

For once @P.Smith. We can agree on this and not stand divided or at odds in opinions.
This is hands down one the best comments you ever wrote. So true.
religious zealots of all faiths are plagues on society. So heart breaking. Billions lost, assets lost, lives lost, a Bright future for the Afghan people right down the toilet.

My country/Nato-others spent billions on the Afghanistan nation. And for what? To tuck tail and leave another vacuumed packed perfect storm to allow radicalism Islam interpretations to influence more Jihadist's fighters?
All of it. The cultivating of relationships, Destroying poppy fields that produce licit drugs that pay for terrorist's weaponry. Back in business for Taliban.
Setting up schools hospitals, Safe zone set up's for woman abused by the men.
Areas for Afghan wives and children who are punished under Islamic law to be safe from beatings, rape, stoning's and death. All gone or burned to ground, Watch and see. Stupid whippings for trivial things like driving a car. Deciding to leave an abusive relationship for greener pastures. All of this infrastructure aid and educating, Farming and educational assets. all wasted. Chaps my ......The Taliban just walked right back in meaner than ever and ruthless as ever.
I could spend time writing all the negative things that will come from the Armed forces turning there back on the Afghan people. I have been hoping for decades we could stabilize that region of the world.
The Afghan people are some of the most heart warming hard working kindest people I ever interacted with before the Taiban came along to exploit them. Peace be on to you پښتانه قبايل brothers of Kandahar.
How should I view my GWOT commendations now? The feeling is moittainai. So upsetting.
Such a waste to just pull out like this. I hope our friends who are British citizens serving there. Living there can pull out with out problems or casualties. And I will say the U.K. has allot of people and assets there. British citizens have been right there step for step with NATO the US. France, Germany. many others. To leave the Afghan people flat like this is beyond measure and totally unacceptable.

The world will never be rid of nuclear energy and nuclear weapons. Unless something else comes along making them obsolete. That's the harsh reality with more more countries coming online with nuclear energy.
Anyways Hiroshima. I would say Happy Anniversary. But that would seem inappropriate.
For what its worth. I do not think the world will ever forget the survivors of this weapon of mass destruction being unleashed on Japan and that happened and all that was lost. We must never forget everything that took place. Of course Including the loss of life and immense suffering not once but twice with a third on deck.

If I may say from the time I saw the "Miracle on Ice" hockey game during the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. And I was present for this game and at rink as young boy. I sat just behind blue line three rows up. As an American I have always believed our Olympic athletes win medals for country.
And you have to believe when the boys rallied today to beat our Australian friends. It was for country.
Had it gone the other way. The Australians do it for Australia and you have to respect it. Its not about the players. Its about the desire to win for your flag and her citizens.
And I saw Jrue rally the team today for country. I was 9 years old when Jim Craig rallied the U.S. team over the Soviets' to win, I saw that same thing from Durant and Jrue today. They win for America.

You do realize our team is comprised in this way and the how and why.
USA Basketball selects players to represent our country in international competition with the skills, character, experience, and desire to win.
“We build teams that are versatile and resilient in the short, intense competitions we face. We’re fortunate that this group of elite athletes has volunteered to represent us in Olympics.
-Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the USA Basketball Board.
Isn't that what the Olympics is about? Sending your best or near best to represent your country?

NBA players are allowed to compete in all FIBA 3x3 official competitions, including the Olympic tournament. This said, they need to comply with the eligibility rules.
And you would not college players on team USA in a basketball event. Not senior players anyway.
No one knows really but young players at that level from teams like........
Illinois, Baylor, Michigan, Alabama, Houston, Ohio St. Iowa,
Like I said no one knows but put up some of Americas best college players in the Olympics
Those young cats may decimate the Olympic playing field if motivated for country.

Australia got game crisp execution and tight focus.

The choice of words is what is what I find derogatory, There have been many mishaps at this Olympics,
We all know its bad. Agreed very very bad.
And Carl Lewis has always been an outspoken critic about this and previous teams.
No. I stand my ground on this. If it was about China or any other country. I would feel the same.
No need to rub it in like that. Uncalled for. Choose better wording.
I am not writer so, I will say what I say write what I feel, And I do not sugar coat the either.
These athletes come and try to give the best performance they can.
Quarter-century of misery-Negative and false!!!

This is how you use your title in the U.K. to help people.
Woman are the human races best asset. Not taking anything away from us men. But its high time we gave woman every opportunity to test there medal.
To Meghan and the 40 celebrities and public figures each committing 40 minutes of their time.
The duchess wrote on the website of her charity Archewell that she wants to help women who have left the workforce due to the pandemic “regain confidence and rebuild their economic strength” and that she hopes her initiative will help inspire a “global wave of service” to those in need.
Cheers for the Duchess, So awesome for woman. I hope spurs traction and helps woman.
