Event marking Japan-China 50th diplomatic anniversary opens in Beijing:

With open confrontation between China & Japan under the broad daylight, where is the necessity of holding any event to mark the anniversary?

Superfluous if not meaningless..

Hong Kong will scrap COVID quarantine:

People still want to know how & where the virus actually first emerged.

The west hammers Wuhan mercilessly & obnoxiously, despite WHO's finding on the contrary, then a cover-up.

Did the virus not come from one of the many bio-weapon labs? WHO knows, but forced to shut their mouths..

Biden rebukes Putin after Russian reservists called up for war:

Why would Biden rebuke Putin when the latter's move clearly indicates the success of US intervention in Ukraine war.

Just don't ever force Putin to a very tight, unbreathable corner. The outcome could be real ugly..

Taking swipe at Russia, Macron says fence sitters need to wake up:

Who is smart Macron to tell fence sitting leaders to wake up?

By accusing Russia of a modern day imperialism that was based on law of the jungle, he is betraying the west of their old day hegemony/colonialism..?

Truss, Kishida to work on countering China:

The only thing non-trustworthy Truss knows is to quickly condemn China's recent provocations over Taiwan.

Can she define provocation?

Could she differentiate who is provoking whom? If not, avoid jumping into rash sweeping statement..

Posted in: China says Biden's Taiwan remarks 'severely violate' U.S. policy over island See in context

Yet another futile caution to US.

We hear the highly disciplined PLA's combat ability, read the efficient hi-tech weapons they possessed. But there is no concrete proof in reality.

Would Beijing want to show the world its might..?

Russia turns to recruiting trucks, big wages to woo volunteer soldiers:

If true, is Putin seemingly at his wits ends?

He could go "scorched earth, quickly, harshly & uncompromisingly" to react to ongoing depressive situation.

It means nuclear war can't be ruled out..(?)

21 million Shiites mark Arbaeen in Iraq's Karbala:

Such enormous religious gathering of Shiites is an unusual reflection of the continuous conflict between the two Islamic sects that are still at odds with each other.

Not a healthy or encouraging sign..

China, AUKUS countries clash at IAEA over nuclear submarine plan:

By now, China should learn how not to waste its time & energy to expect western controlled agencies/institutions like IAEA to be independent.

They only follow their masters' instructions..

World going in 'wrong direction' as climate impacts worsen - UN:

How many more years would UN keep mumbling on climate change but unable to enforce its members to act?

People are sick of UN's inapt innateness. Anyway, it is just a convenient mouthpiece of some since its inception..

Posted in: Tentative labor deal averts threat of nationwide rail strike in U.S. See in context

Smart leader knows how to throw in whopping sum of people's money to pacify rail workers to call off strike.

He has gained yet another political advantage point via giving away taxpayers money again freely..

Posted in: Putin thanks China's Xi for his 'balanced' stand on Ukraine See in context

Xi's balanced stand in Ukraine war?

Xi is in dilemma.

If he offers huge military support to Putin, he would shatter his dove image.

If he stays quiet, Putin's failure will be his big loss..

US considering China sanctions to deter action against Taiwan :

What inconsequential if not useless sanctions.

Ask not what would be the new sanctions.

Ask if any of the previous sanctions has achieved the expected goal.

Has there been any concrete assessment..?

Japan, US eye joint research to counter hypersonic weapons:

Does that imply that the west is already behind time in making the hypersonic missiles?

Are US & Japan desperately trying to catch up with China & Russia, hoping to supersede the latter in the shortest possible time..?

Kremlin hails importance of Putin-Xi meeting in Samarkand:

'Putin & Xi have developed strong personal ties to bolster a “strategic partnership” as they both are now locked in rivalry with US. Putin has said a military alliance can’t be excluded.'

Take serious note of this while waiting for the meeting's outcome..

Gates - Technological innovation would help solve hunger:

Well, the world had taken note of & many people believed in that a few decades ago.

Greater effort/action needed immediately..

50 M people stuck in modern slavery?

More. At least 6 times more, young & old inclusive, trapped in forced labor/marriage.

UN had set a goal to eradicate all forms of modern slavery by 2030. Commendable new goal. Did they not say that times before in the 20th century?

It is 2022 now..

Time to do away with the obsolete monarchism.

Some monarchs are no better than any autocrat, others are just squandering their inherited wealth at their subjects' expense..

Anti-US base incumbent wins 2nd term as Okinawa governor:

Okinawa leader's wish to relocate US base has been Japan premier's nightmare.

No matter how hard he tries to make his people's voice heard, US would just ignore his babble.

Washington has the power to overrule Tokyo..

Tropicana’s Japanese licensee in hot juice for cartons boasting '100% Melon Taste':

Basically most ads lie everywhere everytime, often hidden in sweet promises & enticing languages.

To say some manufactured products are 100% authentic seems to have gone too far.

Don't 100% trust business people..

King Charles, in first address, vows 'lifelong service':

Lifelong service? Laudable. Hope so.

If the rule applicable to King Edward VIII (who abdicated within a year) applies to King Charles III, he may not last more than a year.

Of course, rule can always be changed..

UK postal workers plan further strikes:

One strike here, another there, others everywhere. It is perplexing.

Why are diligent UK workers more inclined to go on strikes lately?

Has the cost-of-living risen beyond expectation, so much so that they are in dire need of more cash..?

New UK leader Truss vows to tackle energy crisis, ailing economy:

Does she really know that she has been making countless irresponsible & unqualified pledges so far just to grab the premiership?

Truss vows tax cuts after winning vote to be new PM:

She has made so many irresponsible promises during her campaign that she must have forgotten most of them by now.

Super Typhoon Hinnamnor could slam straight into nuclear power plant in South Korea:

This is supposedly to be the most powerful typhoon to hit the nation in decades, spearheading at a nuclear plant.

Lets hope it is stable enough against the typhoon and any massive flood, and that the quake-hit Fukushima incident's fiasco-cum-saga would not be repeated..

At this rate, 1 in 4 of the Russia's 145 million people would have already been infected by the virus since the pandemic started in early 2020.

Unofficially, it could be worse in US.

In any case, one estimate claims that 1 in 5 of global 7.9 billion people had suffered from Covid worldwide so far, mostly the elders, albeit ~ 98% recovered..

IAEA to have 'full picture' of Ukraine nuclear plant in days:

They would produce a report “early next week, as soon as we have the full picture of the situation by the end of the weekend, more or less”.

More or less? So they said.

After the report, what next?

Any follow up..?

Dust to downpour - weather whiplash:

Such weird chaotic scenario.

Do we need 'experts' to say such extremes are due to climate change? Would ordinary people not able to sense that?

Meanwhile, hurricanes are gathering force in Atlantic Ocean but not landing(?) Predictable..?

IAEA experts 'not going anywhere' after reaching Ukraine nuclear plant:

They can't go anywhere nor could they do anything.

IAEA experts would provide an impartial, neutral & technically sound assessment of the situation.

Then, compile a report, then leave for good.

Then, no follow-up..
