Transition of power was carried out so quickly without bloodsheds. President Ashraf Ghani fled Afghanistan safely. Some say there must have been some deal between them.

America's purpose was finished when they killed Bin Laden in Afghanistan. For which, they were required to help Afghanistan. Commitment to Afghanistan ensued was only a pretense and was not a serious one.

Who believes Japan will become militaristic country again because Japanese politicians visit Yasukuni to pray for the war dead? It is all politics. They ignore post war peaceful Japan and the country's contributions to them.

Japanese politicians lack eloquency. They cannot talk back to verval abuses and political propagandas of other countries.

As they say, Olympics is not all sports. It is an occasion athletes of the world get together. For example, baseball and basketball, they are not top players of the sports representing the country. Japan won the gold medal in baseball, but they won against the American team which did not include Major Leaguers.

Ms. Akiko Kurabayashi of JCP proposed in the upper house today to cancel the paralympic and use the Olympic village to house COVID 19 positives which are increasingly sharply and becoming beyond hospital capacity in Tokyo. The village has capacity of 18,000 people and 7,000 nurses are available. "Kyosanto" speaks a good thing sometimes.

I find many foreign Olympic athletes tattooed. Why do they do tattoos which, I think, is a primitive tradition.

The move to invite the Olympics to Tokyo began before the earthquake in 2011 in Japan. They intended to change the old image of "taiiku" (athletics) to "sports" in Japan. Until then, "taiiku" did not include pro sports. They thought it was necessary to industriarize sports in Japan. In America and europe, sports are big businesses. They thought Inviting the Olympics to Tokyo again would become a good chance to realize their purpose. Along the line, "Kokutai" National Athletic Meet was changed to National Sports Festival and Japan Sports Agency was built newly in the government.

We have to change our peace constitution and must have a strong military. Only military power can silence them. America is respected because the country has a strong military.

Why was it not criticized until now and suddenly surfaced? I think, disclosure was done by Japanese who were jealous about Oyamada and Kobayashi. By the way, translation "Let's massacre Jewish people" is not right as some pointed out.

Vaccination in Japan is old folks first and younger people later. Many of them have not received the first dose of vaccination yet. Yesterday, I saw on TV many young people waiting in line to receive PCR before they go home to meet their parents. I was surprised these people have not received vaccination yet. I finished vaccination first and second doses. The order of vaccination should be the other way around.

He does not deserve a diplomtat. Stupid. Let him return to Japan and kick him out. In the meantime, there are many such dumb diplomats in Foreign Ministry in Japan. After the war, there is no room Japan's foreign ministry to play diplomacy under the peace constitution. As a result, they are all relaxed. We are wasting tax money.
