Posted in: Ukraine calls for path into NATO after Russia masses troops See in context

Russia will protect the ethnic Russians in Donbass from ethnic cleansing, period. The troops that will support this humanitarian effort are within the borders of Russia. This is not a reason for NATO involvement.

Posted in: Ukraine calls for path into NATO after Russia masses troops See in context

Where is the U.S. massing it's troops, proxies (NATO, et al.) and weapons of war? 70,000 personnel are permanently assigned to U.S. European Command. The U.S. has over 4500 troops in Poland (bordering Ukraine), 500 soldiers in Pabradė, Lithuania and more in the works for military collaboration in the Baltics. But Russia stations its troops within its on territory and they're the provocative ones?

Awesome. Putin is really the only viable leader for Russia who won't sell out to U.S. imperialism. A loss of Putin would mean a retrogression to the embarrassing Yeltsin years of servile capitulation to the U.S. kleptocracy.

You'd never know it from the news here, but Japan has been involved in training the Burmese military.

When facts are no joke:

-South Koreans eat more than 1 million dogs each year

-Each year in June, the city of Yulin in southern China hosts a dog meat festival, where live dogs and cats are sold specifically for eating and an estimated 10,000 are slaughtered for their meat.

No, but those behind all the anti-China propaganda are disgusting individuals and institutions.

Compassion I do have for the honest business owners who have been negatively affected by this whole debacle. But those businesses who were more than happy to engage in obscene price gouging before COVID, not so much. Lots of schadenfreude for those who had raised their room prices six fold or more for the Games and are now screwed.

Posted in: Tokyo Olympic creative chief quits over derogatory remark about Naomi Watanabe See in context

Sounds to me that Watanabe is realizing her comedic gimmick has worn thin and is looking to go a different route, one not based on fat flaunting. Problem is that she really has no other "talent."

Anyway, body shaming, of course, is wrong, but hypertension, diabetes and arterial plaque are not conditions to laugh at.
