"Russia’s incursion into Ukraine is setting off alarm bells in Tokyo, where officials worry that any push by Japan’s Western allies to impose economic penalties will undermine its drive to improve relations with Moscow."
What about Moscow's drive to improve relations with Tokyo? There isn't any such drive. If there was, they would return the islands off Hokkaido that they stole at the end of the war.

"He helped pull off a crime that killed thirteen people, and had everything "gone right" for Aum, would have killed thousands."
"Interesting, seeing as that's not a crime he was actually charged with. So I'm curious as to why you think he should have received punishment for a crime he wasn't get charged nor convicted for."
Then, heck, let's just let the dude go, he hasn't done anything wrong, lol.

“Russia cannot ignore calls for help and it acts accordingly, in full compliance with international law,” he said.\
This would be funny if it wasn't causing so much trouble and it didn't havd the potential to cause a whole lot more trouble and misery.

It's happoshu. Not quite beer since it's low-malt, but way better than any of the dai-san/3rd category crap.
But this 70% off carbs, 4.5% alcohol Green Label version of Kirin Tanrei is nowhere near as good as regular 5.5% alcohol Tanrei.
