Macron loses absolute majority in parliament in 'democratic shock':

No shock, typical European swaying politics.

A hung parliament would lead to political uncertainty in France not experienced in years.

Watch out for its ensuing negative impacts on NATO, EU & Ukraine war..

Millions stranded as floods ravage parts of Bangladesh:

The nation is in much worse shape than I saw in 1984.

As Bengal Bay sea level keeps rising slowly, more flat lands have been eroded in the gigantic delta. Compounded by heavy monsoon rain, flood is unavoidable.

It needs urgent help..

Thailand rushes to rein in cannabis use a week after decriminalization:

To allow open cannabis use to attract tourists is counter intuitive & misguided.

Now sensing a likely health danger, is the central government issuing piecemeal rules to try to bring some order to the use?..

Rather ludicrous..

Russia again cuts natural gas exports to European countries:

With EU members working hard to make Ukraine membership a reality, Russia is retaliating by working equally hard to cut gas supply to more EU countries.

There has not been any winner, only lose-lose scenario..

Posted in: Biden says recession 'not inevitable' See in context

Poor old man, he must have forgotten what he promised during the presidential campaign. Apparently he has been contradicting himself too often. No good to the nation, bad for the people..

Is he absolutely sure that recession is 'not inevitable'?

Groups of experts and economists insist that recession has already started..

Posted in: Leaders of Germany, France and Italy visit Ukraine, dangling hope of EU membership See in context

One day, Macron argued that Russia should not be humiliated in the war. Now he says Ukraine must win the war by all means. What is he up to?

More NATO members openly push up their support for Kiev.

No good for world peace..

Japan hosts military symposium that US hopes will help contain China:

Yet another one.

US started The Pacific Amphibious Leaders Symposium in 2015 as a military pivot to push for deeper ties with like-minded nations in Asia.

Is that due to China phobia or other undisclosable covert agenda..?

Fed attacks inflation with its largest rate hike since 1994:

The Fed is intensifying its effort to tame high inflation by raising its key interest rate.

Could this be the correct way?

Chances are the Fed would continue using the same measure even it it fails soon.

The final collapse seems inevitable this time..

Kishida to be 1st Japanese leader to attend NATO summit:

1st Japanese leader to attend?

What has a nation in East Asia got to do with North Atlantic Treaty Organization?

Perhaps it is the chief's instruction..

Court refuses to halt UK deportation plan to Rwanda for migrants:

This is only the beginning.

Never mind if there is any serious interference with basic human dignity.

After all, a long long time ago, Britain had done similar things to their convicts by sending them to Australia..

Ohio governor signs bill allowing armed school employees:

Instead of curbing & halting the tide of more gun ownerships, some US authorities are counter the move by allowing more people to be armed.

This is a mockery to the traumatic scenarios of mass shootings.

Unthinkable..

64% of Japanese unhappy with gov't response to rising prices - poll:

Doubtlessly. At the current trend, inflation would go on shooting up worldwide.

In fact, World Bank is painting a very negative picture for global nonstop-able inflating economy, using Ukraine war as the wrong excuse.

WTO chief warns of rocky road to deals amid 'poly-crisis':

When WTO would find it hard to deal even with a single crisis of global magnitude, how would it solve any issue loaded with multiple crises?

Whether the road will be bumpy & rocky or not, landmines will always be there..

Senate negotiators announce a deal on guns, breaking logjam:

Offering modest gun curbs & bolstered efforts to improve school safety cannot be seen as a useful deal, apart from being a temporary measure to calm the anti-gun protesters.

Deep in the mind of many, guns are needed. Guns remain a necessity for Americans..

Tight labor market leading to unsavory recruitment tactics in Japan:

There is no necessity for young or would-be graduates to commit themselves to such less-than-desirable recruitment. After all, if there is labor shortage of skilled professionals, they can always wait & choose.

Canada to require a warning be printed on every cigarette:

Has such warning on health hazard not been printed on cigarette package years ago in some countries?

Obviously it was ineffective, smokers just ignore.

Now with e-vapers on the rise, Canada's effort could be futile..

Facebook fails again to detect hate speech in ads:

No big deal.

Even if it is very easy for hi-tech to detect hate speech in ads or otherwise and delete them accordingly, more hate speech would pop up in numerous other media.

Hate speech has achieved a pandemic status. So?...

Posted in: Ukraine today could be East Asia tomorrow: Kishida See in context

Could Ukraine today be really the East Asia tomorrow? What a cynical political stance of Japan PM, trying to project a hyperbolic image for himself internationally.

Hyping ‘China threat’ in Shangri-La Dialogue, Kishida sends aftershocks of Europe geopolitical quake to Asia.

Instructed to rope in Asian nations to antagonize China, Kishida is armed with ill intentions, stressing the need of 'bolstering maritime security cooperation'.

What is he trying to achieve?..

Two main headlines on JapanToday website:

US approves $120 million sale to maintain Taiwanese warships.

French lawmakers pledge support for Taiwan on island visit.

All these go to show that the west would never give up harping on the Taiwan issue to instigate China.

How pitiable..

Polish president says foreign leaders' calls with Putin like speaking to Hitler:

Is he trying to insinuate that both leaders of France and Germany are repeating the stance of Europe leaders' calls to Hitler at the start of WW2.

Is he looking forward to WW3?

He must not..

WHO: COVID origins unclear but lab leak theory needs study:

Is WHO joking? U-turn again?

Last year WHO concluded that it was 'most unlikely' Covid might have started from a lab.

Which lab? Anyone responsible?..

Malaysia Islamic minister says Bon Odori dance not for Muslims:

No surprise.

To some Muslims, notably those who are more inclined to practice Wahabism, all other religions are unacceptable, let alone activities related to other religious rituals.

Beware, their extremists are gaining ground..

Harris touts $3.2 billion investment aimed at stemming Central America migration:

After 16 months, now she is talking about migration.

Real smart?

China rejects Canadian, Australian charges in air encounters:

China acted properly & were protecting its sovereignty. Are others trying to act tough to incite Beijing again & again?

Such air encounters appear to be fast growing, could any tiny spark not lead to huge explosions?

Weakened British PM Johnson survives no-confidence vote:

A convincing victory for him? Not at all.

Perhaps the main reason for allowing him to lead is there is no other white leader capable enough to substitute him.

He may be elated for the time being.

But for how long more..?

Embattled Johnson could face leadership challenge this week:

Since the undignified UK premier refuses to step down a few times, the only way to remove him is to elect a new Tory leader.

That would make him truly embarrassing if not utterly disgraceful.

Would he opt for that..?
