Well Nato know all about indiscriminate attacks on infrastructure and civilians. For those who were not around at the time, Google Nato bombing of Yugoslavia in 1999. Over 78 days of bombing about 3000 civilians were killed and infrastructure destroyed. Also the Chinese embassy was 'accidently' destroyed with a cruise missile.

A story straight from the clown world. If Sean believes in the war so much why is he not fighting on the front lines ? I'm sure that there are some Ukrainian conscripts who would be happy for him to take their place.

No doubt pressure is being applied to Japan by the US to contribute more to the fiasco that is the Ukraine war.

Seem to be a lot of people in this comments section who buy into the Nato story about how badly the war is going for Russia. Why does Ukraine continually need new game changing weapons? Started with Javelins, M777 howitzers, drones, Himars, Soviet tanks and now they are after game changing Western tanks.

The fact that this question is even asked should be enough for all of us to start marching in the street. I see plenty of hubristic comments here from people who have no idea of the level of suffering that war would bring.

It seems clear that Russia has taken Soledar. Any remaining resistance by Ukrainian troops is insignificant. Next on the list for Russia appears to be Bakhmut where Ukraine has already paid a high price for holding.

Why isn't Japan defending Japan ? Japan really isn't a sovereign country.

Jasper Cole, the Uyghur narrative is part of the US info war on China. Read up about Uyghur fighters with ISIL in Syria and stories in the BBC about US bombing Uyghurs fighters in Afghanistan.

If you follow the news on Twitter recently, you would know that Biden was overheard saying that the 'deal was dead'. It's very telling that this wasn't mentioned in this article and wasn't widespread in the media.

The poorly educated man's greatest fear is a secure, highly educated woman and especially one with property
I don't agree with this, most men I know would quite happily have a well-educated wife earning a decent income who also owned a house. A much bigger threat to men in the modern world is women who don't have decent incomes or own property especially in the event of a divorce.

Interesting that this story comes from a Spanish 'human rights watch dog'. Who do you think funds this organization? My money would be on the USA. Even if this story is factually true it is trivial compared to the interference in other countries by US entities like the National Endowment for Democracy or USAID. The work that these organizations do is never mentioned in mainstream media.

Another shot fired in the war being waged by the US mainly but also the rest of the West against China. If you can suspend your biases, this is very clear to see.

US under Trump decided to pull out of the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty. US under Bush decided to pull out of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. US under Obama initiated a 1 trillion dollar upgrade of nuclear weapons. Journalists should have brought these issues up at the forum.

Seems like he could have been guilty of murder and in that case got what was coming to him. Former adviser to Trump John Bolton confirmed that guns were being smuggled across the border into Iran and were given to some of the protesters. More to the troubles there than the media will tell us.

Strangeland, apart from sketchy media reports is there anything else to back up the accusation of Chinese police stations? From what I can see these accusations come from Safeguard Defenders, an NGO most likely funded by the National Endowment for Democracy or the EU. I don't see any solid reporting of intelligence agencies like the CSIS backing up these stories. It's easy to jump on the blame China bandwagon based on what you read in the news which is more often than not propaganda.

Japan, Canada and Australia are being lined up as US proxies in a war against China, that is obvious.

It seems that the Taiwanese population are rejecting the policies of President Tsia Wen's party. In the recent mid-term elections her party received a drubbing, she resigned as party leader as a result. There is also an ongoing scandal regarding what seems to be her false claim of having a Phd form the LSE.

So much to this topic. Many people seem to be oblivious to how their governments and media and controlling what they see and hear about events in the world. Introduction of central bank digital currencies seem to be inevitable which will bring many risks to the personal freedoms in the West. Yet I have never seen any discussion of this topic in the mainstream media.

What a load of bollocks. Japan, make your own decisions about what is right for your society and don't bow to foreign demands to follow the social justice movement.

To anyone who can set aside their anti-Russian biases, it's obvious that Ukraine are shelling the plant and not Russia. They are doing this in an attempt to force a militarized zone around the plant. A good explanation of the current situation is provided in (US) Colonel Douglas McGregor's latest discussion with Judge Napolitano on YT. Or you could continue to believe the 'truth' in the mainstream media.

Xi called out Trudeau's breach of normal diplomatic protocol where he divulged the contents of their previous conversation to the press thereby undermining any trust between them. Trudeau spoke like a robot rolling out the standard blah blah that any leader from the Anglo world is required to do, making further real dialogue unattractive for Xi. Simple as that.

So much context, nuance and history missing from any media story on Ukraine, this is why it is mostly propaganda. No mention of the fact that Indonesia is now buying oil from Russia. The US wants Ukraine to agree to a ceasefire or peace treating to allow the West time to re-arm and train Ukraine. Word is that Ukraine has run out of young men to draft into the army and is now drafting 45+ men. Russia will be wary of agreeing to any ceasefire as Ukraine/US has not honored the Minsk accords and is therefore unlikely to honor any treaty.
