In a nation where knowledge/skills/ competency are purposely ignored by the public, but only celebs/rich would be highly awed/regarded to win the presidency easily, what else to say..

Seniors account for record 29.1% of Japan's population :

The nation is aging faster than anticipated.

With a lower birthrate & shrinking population, a number of immediate social issues ought to be tackled & resolved in the shortest possible time.

But can Tokyo achieve that..?

Posted in: Biden announces Indo-Pacific alliance with UK, Australia See in context

US already has a QUAD aiming to contain China, now going for an Indo-Pacific security alliance with UK and Australia. This time, trying to coerce Beijing openly?

All these can only go to show that US dares not face China alone. It needs others' help to make hollow noise to scare Beijing.

How distressingly inadequate..

Solemn ceremonies aside, Saudi continues to be the focal point.

Saudi strongly supported the Dollar for global oil trade, enabling greenback to become the international foreign reserve currency.

This has enabled US to keep printing money since 1970's.

For this, US bows to Saudi, again & again..

If reintroducing ideas, revolutionary or otherwise, may result in equality of citizens and a more progressive society, why not?

Taliban holds up planes, at least 100 Americans among passengers:

Don't remind people of the discomfiting saga of American hostages held up in Tehran in the 1970's after US ally The Shah stepped down and left.

Apparently Taliban is trying to play a similar game to belittle US..

Tradition or not, as it ditches its leader, Japan grows ever more nationalistic & militaristic as it happily joins US’s anti-China crusade.

Apart from rising death toll, power outages in Louisiana continue.

No electricity for a month? That would be a real torture for people who have enjoyed affluence most of their life.
