Posted in: EU, India try again to clinch trade deal, sidelining China See in context

EU might be making a terrible mistake to sideline China in any economic collaboration. While it could be beneficial for EU to embrace India at the moment, they cannot be that myopic to overlook China lest lament later.

Terrorist activities have begun again in Kabul with greater intensity.

Bombing defenseless and ignorant girls at school constitutes the most evil crime of humanity, yet it is being carried out by suspected religious followers.

Unimaginably devilish act of the worst kind..

Posted in: Disappointing April jobs data pose new challenge for Biden agenda See in context

Not everyone would want to trust the statistics from the Labor Department. The number of jobless and the rate of unemployment in US have often been contentious, subject to further scrutiny and clarification.

Of course Biden does not like the latest figures.

Posted in: WHO hopes Tokyo Olympics can go ahead despite extension of state of emergency See in context

Hope so..

Japan extends state of emergency in six places to May 31 over COVID-19.

The trouble is there is no sign of any subsiding. If this goes on, the Olympics (even if held on time) would surely shun visitors and spectators, making it a rather superfluous world games.

Well, there just isn't any other more viable option at the moment..

Big Pharma group up in arms after Biden signals support for profit-threatening patent waiver on Covid vaccines :

Worldwide, the Big Pharma have been making Big money all the time, at the expense of many poor people. All they want is profit, more profit, greatest profit..

They are too Big/rich/powerful to be controlled, let alone taking instruction from any president.

The pandemic is adding tens of billions of dollars to their coffer, making them extremely filthy hyper-rich. Where is the need to talk about human conscience?

Would they be bothered??

The right to carry a firearm in public for self-defense?

When is self-defense be construed as a real self-defense?

Nobody can snatch guns away from them..

Myanmar activists vow to continue protesting and fighting for justice in the torn and failing nation, despite the sacrifice of hundreds of their friends' lives so far.

Why ask such question when the whole world is utterly confused by the current disturbing vaccination situation everywhere? There is simply no clear cut answer.

Wonder if profiteering/greed has been the main covert agenda in the past months?

Unthinkable..

Has anyone done any proper evaluation?..

Wake up, Japan. Unchain yourself from US control.

You are a sovereign nation, not a vassal state.
