I Am Going To STOP Buying Japanese Cameras Because They Restarted Commercial Whaling!

by Anura Guruge


As of today I am going to STOP buying Japanese cameras, lenses, printers & cars.

I am NOT joking.

Definitely NOT buying anymore Japanese cameras. PROMISE.

I really am SO, SO angry.

Killing whales is so unnecessary. The demand for whale meat in Japan has even FALLEN.

Yes, I fully appreciate that we kill other animals for meat, but the majority of that is ‘farm’ animals.

The despicable Japanese. They never learn. Greedy, heartless, no-shame BASTARDS, Well, we know how they acted prior to and during WW II. They have not changed. Alas.

I am hoping that the sea will enact its revenge! You work that one out. Killing whales, natures beautiful gift to us.

And, alas, not being a vegetarian I do see their point. But, whales? Can’t we control our urges.

I really hope that countries exact sanctions against them. That is all they understand. Money, money, money.

I have to start boycotting Japanese products.

Doesn’t matter that they, damn them, have a monopoly on cameras. I will stop by cameras! I am NOT joking. I am deadly serious.

Damn the Japanese.


I guess I will have to start thinking Hasselblad! {SMILE}

From CNN. Just Google for plenty MORE.


This makes me so, so upset and sad. We, in 2019, are back to commercial whaling. Don’t we ever learn. The despicable Japanese. They never learn. Greedy, heartless, no-shame BASTARDS, Well, we know how they acted prior to and during WW II. They have not changed.

I am hoping that the sea will enact its revenge! You work that one out. Killing whales, natures beautiful gift to us. Why? They will claim for the meat.

And, alas, not being a vegetarian I do see their point, but whales? Can’t we control our urges.

I really hope that countries exact sanctions against them. That is all they understand. Money, money, money.

I am seriously thinking of boycotting Japanese products — but they, damn them, have a monopoly on cameras.

Damn the Japanese.

How Many Diplomats Does The U.S. Have In Russia, IF Putin Can Expel 755?

I am not sure about you, but I was flabbergasted when I read that Putin is threatening to expel 775 ‘diplomats’ out of Russia if the US goes ahead with its latest bill on sanctions.

IF Putin can expel 775 it has to mean that there are hundreds more that are not getting expelled since obviously he wants to maintain some US diplomatic presence in Russia.

775 just seems like a LOT when Obama only booted out 35 – 40 last December for their interference in the 2016 elections.

Big difference between 40 and 775.

For obvious security reasons it appears difficult to find numbers for the exact diplomatic presence in a given country. But, it is being claimed that there are around 1,250 U.S. diplomats and support staff in Russia. Wow. That seems like a lot. There is, as I show in the map above (which I created for you), one embassy and three consulates in Russia. Yes, it is possible that the Moscow embassy has 350-400 U.S. personnel, possibly more. That is without any local help they might hire as drivers, cleaners etc. though in the case of Russia there may be concerns about hiring any local help.


See July 31, 2017 UPDATE on numbers, on each side, here (click).


Just a sobering thought. 1,250 Americans, on government business, in Russia.

That begs the question as to how many Russian government employees are in the U.S. In addition to the Russian Embassy in D.C there are three consulates: in New York, San Francisco and Seattle.  So they mirror the U.S. set-up in Russia. Does this mean that there are ~1,250 Russian ‘diplomats’ in the U.S.? WOW.
