Re: The Lady Was Neither Impressive nor Her Arguments Persuasive

Off mine, too, and I had planned to go in February. Sad that it is the ordinary people who really need the tourist income. But the sort of mass deportation and ethnic cleansing we are seeing is hideous. Despite the balancing act she has to maintain, I cannot believe someone of Aung San Suu Kyi's int...

Re: Where's the Protein?

since iron is mentioned, I also didn't see any iron tablets in Thailand in Boots, Watsons or some of the other shops. Here in the UK, they are available in all the large supermarkets & pharmacies. I have also noticed this. For years I have bought the Centrum nutritional supplement pills in Hong...

The Lady Was Neither Impressive nor Her Arguments Persuasive

For many, many years Aung San Suu Kyi was one of the most admired women in the world. She was credited as being the primary reason for the conversion of Myanmar away from strict dictatorship back to a form of democracy. After the death of Mandela, she and the Dalai Lama, joined in the view of many b...

Re: What happened to North Korea?

As has been said before, the examples of the US attitude to those who have given up nuclear weapons is hardly much inspiration to Kim. Libya? Gaddafi dead and his country in a shambles. Iran? Trump has threatened to tear up the nuclear deal signed by six countries, although how he can do that unilat...

Re: What happened to North Korea?

Trump's latest tweet shows just how much - oops, how little! - the pea-brain knows about North Korea. This emerged a few hours ago- I spoke with President Moon of South Korea last night. Asked him how Rocket Man is doing. Long gas lines forming in North Korea. Too bad! Last time I heard there were p...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

Last night Alec Baldwin picked up an Emmy for his SNL appearances as the Trump. Nice monolgue from Stephen Colbert. Here's part - But if we’re honest with ourselves, and as artists, I think we have to be honest with ourselves. We know that the biggest TV star of the last year is Donald Trump. Yeah. ...

Re: Another Warning About The Philippines

The Head of the Philippines Human Rights Commission has been a constant critic of Duterte and especially of his war on drugs. Like Trump, Duterte has again spoken his mind. Referring specifically to the murdering of teenagers, Duterte responded with yet more slander - “Why is this guy so ... suffoca...

Re: Another Warning About The Philippines

In the wake of the death of the teenage student Kian Delos Santos, not only has it come to light that two other teenage students were shot and killed, one of them, Carl Angelo Arnaiz, was allegedly killed in an exchange of fire with police after robbing a taxi driver last month. A government forensi...

Re: Would You Notice a Naked 20-year old Man on the Subway?

It's happened again - but this time in Thailand! A buck naked motorcyclist was arrested on the Din Daeng/Rama 4 expressway yesterday. Apparently he had first been spotted in Saraburi 100 kms away. When apprehended he was found to be very drunk and unable to give his name. I'm not sure if this was on...

Re: Consequences of Trump's Win - 4

In his first tweet following the London subway attack, Trump gave away what may be confidential intelligence information - speculation gleaned from Fox News. So he has yet again created an international incident. That is more than disgraceful for once again it puts at threat the close intelligence s...
