Thanks to The Old Guy for following this Old Guy. I will post here a photo of my now defunct guided missile cruiser on which I saw darned near very island and continent in the Pacific. Includes Australia, New Zealand, and Tasmania. Japan is a given as are the Philippines. What isn't is China and the Soviet Union. Saw those to, surreptitiously. That is a story in and of itself. Anyway, I appreciate the follow as I'm not getting any younger. Funny how once you get old enough to get a handle on stupidity you are too old to do much about it. It's like this is planned.
USS Jouett DLG-29. Three and one half years aboard.
#japan 's Ministry of Health website reads:
"Although we encourage all citizens to receive the #covid -19 vaccination, it is not compulsory or mandatory. Vaccination will be given only with the consent of the person to be vaccinated after the information provided. Please get vaccinated of your own decision, understanding both the effectiveness in preventing infectious diseases and the risk of side effects. No vaccination will be given without consent. Please do not force anyone in your workplace or those who around you to be vaccinated, and do not discriminate against those who have not been vaccinated."
Why do they have more choice than we as American Citizens do in #america ? The Land of the free? Just what is the #biden Administration and the #democrats hiding? What's their ulterior motive? All good questions.
Both the men's and women's Tennis Associations in America are calling for clear and transparent investigations into Peng Shuai's claims of sexual assault against a former Chinese Vice Premier.
This probably won't happen because Jinping doesn't want to look bad. This is for more than just one reason. Chinese culture is rather complicated. The Japanese had "face" or "personal honor" and "family honor", the Chinese have something similar. I just don't know what it's called, the Chinese and the Japanese are more alike culturally than they'd like to admit.
Then there's not wanting the Communist Party to look bad because they want communism to take over worldwide.
I don't think that #Putin will attack the #ukraine just yet. I think once that Nordic II oil flow opens and the money flow starts coming or if the UK doesn't allow for the oil to flow in a timely fashion. Putin's hurting economically. While it's true, they're sitting on lots of natural resources, with the sanctions in place, they're going nowhere fast. So, everyone has to be careful and not "poke the bear" too much.
Remember, in theory, that's why the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, America was starving them out in WWII.
December 7, 1941. It was a Sunday morning when the Empire of Japan launched an attack on Pearl Harbor in #Honolulu , #Hawaii . This is the day of infamy I grew up knowing and remembering, and remember till this day.
This wasn't meant to be a surprise attack. Because of fuckups on both Japan's and America's ends, it became a surprise attack. Japan attacked because America blockaded them from being resupplied by Hitler's war machine, and they were starving.
There is something to be learned from this today. We do not want a war of any kind today, not even a civil war. War is ugly. People die, even non-combatants. Are you ready to sacrifice your family?
There were civilians in Hawaii that lost their lives in the Pearl Harbor attack on this day all those years ago.
People need to learn to #MindTheirOwnBusiness . If they want to be together, let them. Who gives a flying rat's ass if they want to be together? As long as they aren't squandering taxpayer money, breaking the law, launching fucking nukes, I don't care. Everyone else shouldn't either. Jeez.
The "Rocket Man" hasn't done anything as of late. It's been a few weeks. They're dense motherfuckers if they provoke him. Seriously? I think he does have fully operational rockets, and nuclear ones at that.
Will he strike? I doubt it, as much as the left wants him to.
