Sad day for Japan and the remainder of the Pacific. If I was a foreigner in Japan I would seriously think of leaving.

The headline is complete rubbish. Any tension was localized and completely drummed up by media who seem to be off on their own crusade.

Posted in: Iran directly involved in Yemen Houthi rebel ship attacks, U.S. Navy's Mideast chief says See in context

I'm starting to have those deja-vu feelings with flashbacks to the 'manufacture of consent' prior to the US invasion on Iraq. Back then it was all about fictious yellowcake from Niger, aluminum centrifuge tubes, anthrax and mysterious connections to Al Queda. Amazing to see history repeat again and again.

Something all the same lines seems to happen for foreign workers in Israel. They need to sign pledge not to have sex with Israelis.

Posted in: What's at stake in Taiwan's elections? China says it could be a choice between peace and war See in context

Taiwan is part of China according to the 1972 US - China communiques, this established the One China Policy which is still respected and supposedly adhered to by the US and most of the world. However the US has not adhered by to the agreement by continuing to arm Taiwan, interfering in Taiwan politics and establishing what is actually a de-facto embassy in Taiwan. If it all goes south from here, you now know who to blame.

Posted in: Meet Japan's female marines who are training for war See in context

'Training for war' heavily emphasized in this headline. Yeah of course training for war is what soldiers, sailors and airman do but is the purpose of this 'article' supposed to send a message that war with China is a given?

There has been no independent investigation or confirmation that a massacre took place in Bucha, we are expected to believe everything Ukraine tells us without question, I don't.

Posted in: Japan calls Russia nuclear threat 'unacceptable' on Hiroshima anniversary See in context

The ex-president of Russia state that nukes could be used if an attempt to take Russian territory is made. France, UK and the US would do the same. But let's not forget which country dropped 2 nuclear weapons on Japan, it wasn't Russia.

I don't believe that this was the real reason for her visit. More likely it was to convince China to buy more US debt and not to dump US treasuries.

Posted in: China's air patrols with Russia spark Japanese security concerns See in context


No I said Canadian aircraft in the SCS, but I believe that they are also operating out of Japan. For 70 years ? I don't think that most of what I said has been in place for 70 days let alone 70 years. But you bring up a good point. For 70 years that agreement between the US and China over Taiwan has kept the peace, if peace is important to the US, Japan etc, why then are they changing the status quo ? And no, China has not threatened to invade Taiwan but they have said that use of military force is an option should Taiwan declare independence.

Quid pro quo - US bases in Japan and Korea, Canadian and Australia aircraft and ships in SCS, US sail throughs of the Taiwan Strait, new US military bases in the Philippines, US nuke sub visits to Korea, US B52 bombers to be based in Australia, Nato office in Japan, AUKUS, Quad - everybody is worried including me and I live in the South Pacific

Let's now worry about achieving the 1.5 degree target. It doesn't seem possible therefore I propose that we focus on living the good life instead one filled with anxiety, guilt and worry. Say no to fighting climate change, live life instead.

Posted in: After dangerous encounters, U.S. accuses China of military 'aggressiveness' See in context

If the US really wanted to de-escalate tensions with China it would not be sailing through the Taiwan strait. Good on the Chinese for having the guts to stand up to the US most of the rest of the world would not. I see that Germany now believes that it needs to send a warship to the Indo Pacific, this is becoming farcical, whose next Iceland ???

Posted in: Ukraine trying to end battlefield stalemate in what may be start of counteroffensive See in context

I find it strange that the media have now reported a significant loss suffered by Ukraine. Up to now losses were not reported of spun differently. As for the 'stalemate', this has been a war of attrition in which Ukraine has incurred massive loses at the hands of Russian artillery, drones and missiles - this has not been reported of course.
