Through designing a luxury model featuring a self-driving capability, Honda might appeal to some practical business owners but would surely lose some car enthusiasts who enjoy the thrill of driving experiences.

The fishing boat’s activity and movement or the cause of the capsizing was not known.

In case there are plenty of sophisticated electronic equipments found in the boat, you can surely know that these men are the Chinese Maritime Militia (CMM).

Since the antiquity, with typical characteristics of a big bully and a coward, China has applied a strategy called "Soft: seize, Tough: back off."

Once the vulnerable countries join forces and are ready to fight hard against China, this coward would surely back down.

Posted in: Trump looks to reassert himself after impeachment acquittal See in context

Sen. Lindsey Graham, who spoke with Trump on Saturday night, acknowledged that Trump is “mad at some folks,” but also “ready to move on and rebuild the Republican Party” and “excited about 2022."

Excuse me Graham, did you mean Trump vowed to rebuild the GOP or continue to dismantle it?

I find the poster baffling given that the image of a wolf in the Little Red Riding Hood story connotes trickery and untrustworthiness.

It would be interesting to find out how young children respond to the message in this poster.

Unless the WHO team can travel to Wu Han at the time Australia pushed for a global inquiry into COVID origin, and have the right to contact the relatives of the COVID victims to find out how their loved ones died or interview the doctors who first reported the virus to the government, this pseudo investigation only serves China and Tedros.

Posted in: Submarine collision with ship left more extensive damage than first thought See in context

Kishi said Monday the Souryu was unable to avoid hitting the commercial vessel despite the ship being visible in the submarine's periscope as it surfaced.

Given the delay of more than 3 hours, it is possible that the screw of this submarine has something serious to hide. This incident remind me the criminal case of Katsutoshi Jitsukawa, the first officer of Japan Airline, in the ABC News article titled "Japan Airlines cracks down on pilots drinking alcohol, upgrades breathalysers internationally" on November 16, 2018:

..."Katsutoshi Jitsukawa had drunk about two bottles of wine and a pitcher of beer the night before he was due to fly from London's Heathrow Airport last month.

He had tried to avoid colleagues to mask the smell of alcohol as they prepared for their flight.

But the driver of a crew bus smelt alcohol on his breath and told police, who charged him for violating British aviation law.

Tests found the 42-year-old first officer had 189 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood in his system — a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.189, almost 10 times the 0.02 BAC limit for a pilot.

the Japan Navy needs to properly investigate this incident and punish the culprits in the harshest way to avoid more serious disasters.

To date, the image of Japanese politicians bowing low as way to apologise for their guilts is becoming a mix of cliché and humour. Probably, now is time to change ways to apology for those who are fully aware of their wrong doings and still commit them.

To deal with this latest aggressive move of China, Vietnam and other claimants need to join the QUAD and take China to Arbitration over the Southeast Asia Sea.

In the meantime, the US under the Biden Government needs to show the free world that China's aggressiveness will be stopped by the QUAD, as well as boycott and sanction.

Posted in: McConnell says Trump provoked Capitol siege; mob 'fed lies' See in context

The Avenger Today  07:51 am JST

To give meaning to his words, that implies Senator Mitch McConnell will vote to convict and prohibit Trump from enjoying "any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States".  If he doesn't, his words mean nothing to me.

I couldn't agree with you more.

In case McConnell and many more republican senators do vote to convict Trump, it is a good indication that the GOP is trying to rebuild its brand image and winning back trust of voters and big donors.

With Trump's self-interests, it is likely that he will pardon those who would return his favour after his last day in office.

It is interesting to see if Trump would pardon the rioters who faithfully responded to his call and now claim "Trump made me do it.".

Posted in: Trump trial pending; McConnell calls it 'vote of conscience' See in context

For Republican senators, the trial will be a perhaps final test of their loyalty to the defeated president and his legions of supporters in their states back home. It will force a further re-evaluation of their relationship with Trump, who lost not only the White House but majority control of the Senate, as they recall their own experiences sheltering at the Capitol as a pro-Trump mob ransacked the building.

This Trump trial is not only a "vote of conscience" but also a vote of common sense."

For the latter, what is the point to be loyal to the person who has lost his own election after one term, destroyed the brand image of the GOP leading to shock defeats of both houses, and not less important, this person incited his cult members to attack the US Congress' holy temple.

Posted in: Pelosi calls for prosecution of any Congress members who might have helped pro-Trump siege See in context

I fully endorse Pelosi's call and believe that it is time for the GOP to rebuild the ruins.

Just more than an hour ago, the ABC News reported that numerous big corporate donors – including Coca-Cola, Walmart, Hallmark, Amazon, Airbnb, and MasterCard – are pulling their political donations from America's Republicans (please refer to the article titled "Corporate donors flee Republican Party following Capitol Hill riot, and it's only the beginning."

I believe that unless the GOP politicians can demonstrate that Trump's influence on GOP is dead, buried, and cremated, more big companies will follow suit.

Particularly, there is no better opportunity for those who voted to reject the certification of the Electoral College votes and also those who are Trump's allies to do the right thing by joining their ten ethical GOP senators to convict Trump in the current impeachment.

I believe unless the US and the free world join together in the fight against China's intellectual property theft, the situation will maintain the status quo or be worsen. And moving business out of China is the only way to force China stopping its unethical economic development practices.

zichi Today  07:18 am JST

Trump is highly likely to pardon himself.

With the unpredictability and instability of Trump, anything can happen.

Nonetheless, the US Department of Justice in 1974 clearly stated in what circumstances the US president can be pardoned:

"Under the fundamental rule that no one may be a judge in his own case, the President cannot pardon himself.

If under the Twenty-Fifth Amendment the President declared that he was temporarily unable to perform the duties of the office, the Vice President would become Acting President and as such could pardon the President. Thereafter the President could either resign or resume the duties of his office" (For more details, please refer to https://www.justice.gov/olc/opinion/presidential-or-legislative-pardon-president).

In the end, Trump's fate is in the hand of Pence who can either invoke constitutional authority under the 25th Amendment or pardon his sinful president.

Since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, the word China has become synonymous with cover-up, corruption, and untrustworthiness.

I hope that with determination, diligence, and sacrifice, the independent investigation team will be able to find out the origin of this virus. In case China was found to be the culprit, it must be held financially accountable for this epic disaster.

To rebuild the GOP from the ruins, the GOP need to get rid of Trump and his cult members once and for all and chose an ethical and visionary leader like Mitt Romney. Also, the GOP needs those members who truely care about the US democracy and decency by endorsing Joe Biden.

As for Ted Cruz and other GOP politicians who are opportunist scavengers and cowards, let them found their own party whose main members are right-wing extremists, thugs, and brainless militants.

Posted in: Australia vows not to rush vaccine rollout, citing UK 'problems' See in context

The Australian premier has for weeks said that mass-vaccination efforts in Britain, the United States and elsewhere would provide Australia with more data about the safety of the vaccines than clinical trails could.

The word "Australian premier" is incorrectly used for Scott Morrison, the Prime Minister (PM) of Australia. Under the current political system in Australia, there are six state premiers and two chief ministers of the territories.

P.s: I fully agree with AustPaul's comment, "I don’t need a dictionary, guarantee the word premier is never used for the PM."

Posted in: Cruz leads Republican drive to object to Biden's win See in context

klausdorth Today  07:11 am JST

Cruz and those others are doing nothing else but bowing to their master. Trying to keep up that divide and hoping for some rewards! What a joke!

It looks as if Cruz is trying to do what Trump would want in the hope that in case Trump cannot be chosen as the GOP presidential candidate in 2024, Trump would tweet his right-wing followers to support him.

More than four years ago, the dangerous personality of Ted Cruz captured the attention of The Conversation editor Misha Ketchell. In his article titled "Ted Cruz, not Donald Trump, is the scariest candidate standing" published on March 23, 2016, the author noted, "By many measures, he’s a far more frightening candidate than unpredictable, truth-averse, race-baiting vulgarian Donald Trump."

Posted in: Japan opposed sanctions against China after Tiananmen crackdown, declassified documents show See in context

Akio Takahara, a professor of Chinese politics at the Graduate School of Public Policy at the University of Tokyo, said the government believed helping to bring stability to China, which was still in the early stages of modernization, would be in Japan's national interest.

It is quite easy to look back and criticise our actions in the past particularly with Japan's decision to support China in its Tiananmen crackdown in 1989.

In case the US and the free world could turn back time to fix past errors of judgment in our modern time, I believe they first should contain the China genie when it was first released out of the bottle in 1972. Then, the US should never let China to invade and occupy Vietnam's Paracel Islands in 1974. By using Paracel islands as the springboard, China has aggressively expanded its territories in the Southeast Asia Sea in the recent years. Next, the US should never abandon its two allies, the South of Vietnam and the ROC (Republic of China, now is Taiwan)...

As for now, the US, Japan, India, Australia and the free world should join forces to stop China's aggressive expansions in the Southeast Asia Sea. Losing this sea to China is the herald of the end of the US's number one status and the beginning of nightmare for the world.

Posted in: China's first vaccine hustled to market as race to inoculate 1.3 bil speeds up See in context

Around 4.5 million Chinese, mainly health workers and workers destined for overseas jobs, have already been administered largely unproven emergency vaccines, according to authorities.

It is absolutely unethical when Beijing approved the unproven vaccines for its 4.5 million front-line health workers. Instead, Xi Jinping should be the first to be vaccinated. It is a shame when China has tried to conceal what its scientists knew about the virus throughout the pandemic and in the end, it decided to go ahead with an unproven vaccine.

(P.s: For some reason my previous comment was unintentionally posted while I was still writing. Please disregard it. Thank you!)
