Japanese fighter jets land in Philippines for 1st time since WWII:

Apparently Marcus is trying to act tough, indirectly telling his neighboring countries that he is courting the favor of US & Japan.

He is filthy rich, that does not mean he is super-intelligent or a know-all leader.

UK Labor Party vows to abolish House of Lords:

Well, the House of Lords has been for show, dysfunctional but decorative.

However, if Labor takes over after the next elections, their top priority must be to revive the ailing economy, & restore order fast.

Else too late to lament..

Ready for rabbits:

According to Chinese zodiac, the Year of Rabbit will arrive in 1.5 months.

If one were to look at just the fascinating plaque in the photo (and not its surrounding), one may think it comes from China, with all those Chinese characters..

UK government could bring in military to ease strikes:

Bringing in soldiers to ease strikes to ensure public services running?

Australian MPs delegation to visit Taiwan:

Ugly Australian politicians, bowing to the demand of US with the sole aim of currying favor from US & belittling China.

Madam Tsai is hopeless & hapless, kowtowing to the west all the time, only to lose badly in local elections at home..

Japan to expand Okinawa-based ground force unit:

Again & again, China's rise & assertiveness are used as trivial excuses to beef up Japan's ground force unit.

Indirectly, Tokyo has been incessantly promoting arms race to tarnish/damage global peace.

Why? The past forgotten..?

Assange appeals to European court over US extradition:

While his whistleblower counterpart Snowden gets a Russian passport, Assange continues to decay in British prison.

They only listen to US..

US imposes sanctions on 3 North Korea officials after ICBM test:

Sanctions had already gone mad some years ago. They are getting more irritating & disgusting.

Russian, Chinese bombers fly joint patrols over Pacific:

While both may want to show their air force strength in joint patrols over Pacific far away from Kyiv, China seems to continue shunning to fight together with Russia in Ukraine.

Uneasy calm grips Ukraine as West prepares winter aid @JapanToday:

Why does the image show a Ukrainian flag at half-mast? Is that a mourning sign?

With some 9 million refugees in other countries, few millions in Russian occupied territory, the population has dropped to ~30 million, with a sizeable number displaced within the country itself..

When was the 'golden era'? What was it?

China can just ignore a shrinking US-led UK..

Hawaii's Mauna Loa is the largest active volcano.

Accompanying by a number of small quakes, it could blow off its top literally anytime.

What is the Unification Church, how will Japan's probe affect it?

To many Japanese, the Church is a cult imported from & subsidized by another country.

Recession-hit UK needs more migrant labor:

Does UK really need 'more migrant labor to boost productivity as it faces a toxic mix of soaring inflation & shrinking growth'?

COP27 yields ‘historic’ deal on climate loss & damage.

Verily, don't put too much faith on the deal. Nothing unusual, let alone historic.

Some observers say last-minute objections threaten historic UN COP27 climate deal:

For the sake of future generations, don't call it a 'historic' climate deal when there is nothing substantive, concrete or beneficial reached.

The whole summit has been a farce, worse than before..
