Israel is situated in a bad location. The country is surrounded all by Isramic countries. Fight will never end. I asked to my Jewish friend who is an American what about Israel move to America and become one state of USA? His did not answer to my question.

I am a retired Japanese. I rarely eat fish after my retirement since they are expensive. Pork and chiken are a lot cheaper than fish and they are more substantial. When the accident happened in Fukushima, products of the prefecture were sold a lot cheaper than those of other places at super markets. I was happy I could purchase Fukushima rice and Fukushima peach cheaper. After ten years, I am all right and healthy.

We realized Russia remains not much different from the time of Tzar. People are ignorant and living like slaves.

Putin said in his speech Uklaine was historically a part of Russia. He thinks Gorby gave in too much and is rewinding time. 75 to 80% of Russians are reportedly supporting Putin. Because Putin brought stability of their livelihood after big confusions of Perestroica. For them, livelihood is more important than freedom.

This problem has been known for long in Japan. But the government did not do anything effectuve until it is becoming an imminent threat. My neighbor, father a truck driver and mother working at a nursery, has 4 children and live in 2DK small danchi house yet it costs them over 60,000 yen a month. This is ridiculous.

I saw the news on BBC TV old folks served meals at churches. I was impressed British churches do such a good thing and thought about Japanese buddhist temples where people go only when people die. I wish they do similar charity things at Japanese temples too. They are having troubles losing believers visiting temples recently.

Russia may be helping finance it. I do not think North Korea alone can afford expenses.

It is a surprise for me so many negative comments written here about Abe and they are not rejected by the moderator. I thought Abe was seen more positively from abroad.

Among many things, It impressed me very much that Britain's new King Charles wearing the military attire during the Queen's funeral. It is a sign that they consider the military as an important element to constitute a sovereign nation. While in Japan, JSDF has been ignored and devalued for long and people are still refusing to admit JSDF as a full fledged military.

Putin decided invasion of Uklane seeing U.S. withdrew from Afghanistan - U.S. is no more plalying the role of the world policeman and as a result of too early announcement by Bide that U.S. would not send U.S. Forces to Uklaine.

Japanese are still all wearing masks and getting four time jabs but contractors are sharply increasing while in U.S. and Europe they are not putting masks and the numbers of contractors are getting smaller. Why is this?

For ordinary workers and citizens of Hong Kong, their lives may not be affected much so long as they do not raise voices against their government. However, mental stresses living under the authoritarian rulings may not be comfortable for them. That matters us a lot who are living in democratic countries.

Japan's budget is 100 trillion yen while tax income is 60 trillion yen. They fill the gap issueing the national bond and that accumulated 1,200 trillion yen. If they increase the interest rate, they have to pay a lot more for increased interests of the national bonds.

Inflation is not happening in Japan yet. There is no reason Japan to increase interest rate right now. Increasing interest rate is more hazardous than cheaper yen affecting people's life, for example, those who borrowed money to buy their houses. Kuroda's tenure ends next April. New governor replacing him will increase interest rate.

What about Okinawa become the 51st state of United States? U.S. may think Okinawa is necessary for them geopolitically. Going independent will not be feasible economically for Okinawa. If they feel they are treated badly by Japan. It is an option.

It all depends how deeply the west commits to Uklaine. Economic sanctions only cannot save Uklaine from Russian invasions. The west and U.S. are not very serious to save Uklaine, it seems. Russia will get Uklaine eventually.

I am not particularly surprised by his accomplishment. Today, Japanese people can watch MLB games everyday on NHK BS1. When I compare physical constitutions of Japanese players with those of MLB players, it does not mean he can do the same thing in MLB.
