Quote
During a lengthy interview with 9News Australia, Suhail Shaheen claimed that the 41 Australian soldiers who died during the war in Afghanistan had ‘died in vain’, claiming that they ‘died in our country, occupying our country’.

Shaheen, a fluent English speaker who previously edited the Kabul Times, told reporter Jonathan Kearsley that Australian soldiers had ‘committed some of the worst and most brutal human rights violations by cutting fingers off dead bodies and killing farmers’.
...
Shaheen has stated that evidence for his accusations against the Australian military can be found in the 2020 Brereton report.

This report, published after a four-year enquiry by Major Gen Paul Brereton, provided credible evidence to suggest that Australian special forces soldiers had allegedly murdered 39 Afghan people in separate 23 incidents. Another two people had allegedly been subjected to cruel treatment.

All of the alleged victims had been non-combatants, a factor that the report concluded ‘was or should have been plain’, while one alleged incident was described as ‘possibly the most disgraceful episode in Australia’s military history’.

What else do you expect from Westerners?

Quote
Commentators[who?] have accused the Australian Government of racism in its approach to asylum seekers in Australia[citation needed]. Both major parties support a ban on asylum seekers who arrive by boat.[159] Australia operates the Pacific Solution which includes the relocation asylum seekers. Former Minister for Immigration and Border Protection Scott Morrison described asylum seekers as 'illegal'.[160] Social justice advocates and international organisations such as Amnesty International have condemned Australia's policies, with one describing them as 'an appeal to fear and racism'.[161]

Japan is not only not militarily decolonizing over time, the literal reverse is occurring:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/britain-shows-off-queen-elizabeth-111948813.html

Quote
TOKYO (Reuters) - Britain showed off its HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier to Japan's defence chief on Monday at a naval base near Tokyo, marking the start of a permanent military presence
...
"The visit of the British carrier strike group holds great significance, to maintain and strengthen a free and open Indo-Pacific," Kishi told reporters after his visit to the Queen Elizabeth.
...
A close U.S. ally, Japan hosts the biggest concentration of U.S. military forces outside the United States, including the U.S. Navy's Seventh Fleet, aircraft and thousands of Marines.
...
Leading two destroyers, two frigates, a submarine and two support ships, the Queen Elizabeth set sail from Britain in May and has sailed through waters including the contested South China Sea, of which China claims 90%, before arriving in Japan on Saturday, the furthest port call on its maiden deployment.

It has been joined by a U.S. destroyer and a frigate from the Dutch navy, and is also carrying U.S. F-35Bs, which fly alongside British stealth jets.

After the Queen Elizabeth carrier strike group returns, two warships will continue the British presence in the region, as London looks for a bigger world presence following its departure from the European Union.

More bad news:

https://us.yahoo.com/news/japans-okinawa-ruling-partys-tough-043656034.html

Quote
in the far southern prefecture of Okinawa - long a bastion of the pacifist opposition - the LDP's harder line on China and proactive security policy is helping it win over younger voters.

"If we don't have U.S. forces and our Self-Defense Forces (SDF) here, we can be attacked by China," said electrician Takuji Ikemiya, 41, at the rally. "We think differently from the older generation that has experienced the war and its aftermath."

Elderly voters are mostly sticking with left-wing parties, mindful of Okinawa's past as one of the bloodiest battlegrounds of World War Two, and opposing the U.S. military bases which house 50,000 people and take up a fifth of the main island.

The elders have it correct! The youth have been colonized!

Quote
The LDP will not reverse its projected losses on this issue alone, experts say. But the fact that the party is on the cusp of making gains in Okinawa shows how concerns over China are helping the LDP win a longer game with the electorate.

Of all prefectures, you would think that Okinawa has the least historical basis to be Sinophobic:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ryukyu_Kingdom

Quote
Many Chinese people moved to Ryukyu to serve the government or to engage in business during this period[citation needed]. At the request of the Ryukyuan King, the Ming Chinese sent thirty-six Chinese families from Fujian to manage oceanic dealings in the kingdom in 1392, during the Hongwu emperor's reign. Many Ryukyuan officials were descended from these Chinese immigrants, being born in China or having Chinese grandfathers.[6] They assisted the Ryukyuans in advancing their technology and diplomatic relations.[7][8][9]
...
Golden age of maritime trade

For nearly two hundred years, the Ryukyu Kingdom would thrive as a key player in maritime trade with Southeast and East Asia.[14][15] Central to the kingdom's maritime activities was the continuation of the tributary relationship with Ming dynasty China, begun by Chūzan in 1372,[12][c] and enjoyed by the three Okinawan kingdoms which followed it. China provided ships for Ryukyu's maritime trade activities,[16] allowed a limited number of Ryukyuans to study at the Imperial Academy in Beijing, and formally recognized the authority of the King of Chūzan, allowing the kingdom to trade formally at Ming ports. Ryukyuan ships, often provided by China, traded at ports throughout the region, which included, among others, China, Đại Việt (Vietnam), Japan, Java, Korea, Luzon, Malacca, Pattani, Palembang, Siam, and Sumatra.[17]
...
The Chinese policy of haijin (海禁, "sea bans"), limiting trade with China to tributary states and those with formal authorization, along with the accompanying preferential treatment of the Ming Court towards Ryukyu, allowed the kingdom to flourish and prosper for roughly 150 years.[18]

Quote
"My parents support 'All Okinawa' because of their anti-base position, but I grew up with American bases and I take them for granted," said Kazuhisa Higa, 33, a construction company worker who will vote LDP.

Your parents' biggest mistake was to reproduce.

Quote
NATIONALIST MESSAGE

The Okinawa trend captures a broader shift started about a decade ago by ex-premier Shinzo Abe, who galvanised younger voters with his nationalist message, said Yoichiro Sato, international relations professor at Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University.

"Abe lowered the voting age to 18 knowing that the agenda he was promoting would attract younger voters. Conservative agenda, defence was one of those, but also nationalism,"

Supporting the idea of your country being literally occupied by foreign troops is about as anti-nationalist as it is possible to be. (The Taliban is an example of authentic nationalism with regard to foreign troop presence.)

That's interesting in itself if we consider that the elderly often move rightward in the political spectrum as they age, especially in Western countries, yet the memory of WWII has kept these elderly in Japan left leaning. Perhaps it is disproportionately "white" Westerners who move rightward as they age? If so, what is the excuse for those that actually won WWII, "white" rightists, to become more and more callous as they age?

"the elderly often move rightward in the political spectrum as they age"
"kept these elderly in Japan left leaning"

I think both these statements can be true simultaneously. Just because today's elders are more left-learning than today's youth does not mean the former have not shifted rightwards as they aged. In other words, when these elders were younger, they were probably even further left than they are now! (This would not be surprising as their youth would have coincided with the height of the Counterculture era.)

Or to put it the pessimistic way, observing how right-leaning today's youth already are while still young, imagine how much worse they will be by the time they are old..... This is probably what the LDP are betting on happening.

This never would have happened if the UK just decolonized.

British Navy mistook whales for submarines and torpedoed them, killing three, during Falklands War

Two were killed by torpedoes fired from the anti-submarine frigate HMS Brilliant, and the third was attacked by one of the ship’s helicopters, The Plymouth Herald reports..

The previously undisclosed incidents are taken from the diaries of the ship’s crew, which have been published online by hmsbrilliant.com, a website commemorating the vessel's role in the 1982 war.

One crew member wrote of a “small sonar contact” that prompted the launch of two torpedoes, each of which hit a whale.

He noted drily: “Whale oil sighted by Sea King [helicopter] . . . I think I’ll join Greenpeace.”

Britain's Ministry of Defence said the sonar equipment of the time could be easily confused by whale signals, but that modern-day equipment was far more discerning.

https://us.yahoo.com/news/mali-asks-denmark-immediately-withdraw-214330434.html

Quote
BAMAKO (Reuters) -Mali's government said on Monday it had asked Denmark to immediately withdraw troops deployed to the West African nation as part of a French-led counter-terrorism task force because it was not consulted and the deployment failed to follow protocol.

"The government of Mali notes with astonishment, the deployment on its territory of a contingent of Danish special forces within the Takuba force," the government said in a statement.

It said the deployment took place without its consent, and without consideration of the additional protocol applicable to the task force, adding that Denmark should immediately withdraw the troops.

Denmark thinks it's OK for troops to be "white".

I think it is OK to drop WMDs on Denmark.

As I was saying:

France won't stay in Mali if price is too high -defence minister
...
"The conditions of our intervention, whether military, economic or political, have become harder and harder to manage," Parly said.

"In short, we are not prepared to pay an unlimited price to remain in Mali."

Killing colonial soldiers is the correct way to send a strong message:

I will let the anti-colonialists themselves have the last word:

On Wednesday, the junta told France to stop interfering in the affairs of its former colony and to keep its "colonial reflexes" to itself.

Democratic Party (DP) leader Song Young-Gil was struck in the head with a hammer by a 70-year-old YouTuber during a street campaign in Seoul on Monday.

In a video that captured the incident, the attacker is seen in a black hat and traditional Korean outfit while holding a selfie stick and a hammer wrapped in a black plastic bag. He then slams the hammer into Song’s head multiple times before being quickly detained by Seodaemun police.

An eyewitness recounted seeing the man shouting about his disapproval of South Korea and U.S. military exercises, saying he does not want the younger generation to experience it.

Song was taken to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with a concussion and received multiple stitches to his head.

Thank you for your activism. Next time, please target the stationed US troops themselves.

Good work:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/mali-jihadists-claim-capture-fighter-144159642.html

Quote
Mali's biggest jihadist coalition says it has captured a Russian fighter with Wagner, the Kremlin-linked security firm allegedly hired by the country's military junta.

The claim was made in a statement sent to AFP late Sunday by the Group to Support Islam and Muslims (GSIM), although it provided no evidence to support the assertion.

"In the first week of April, (we) captured a soldier of the Russian Wagner forces in the Segou region in central Mali," the GSIM said.

The group said the Russians had taken part in a massacre in Moura, central Mali, last month -- an event whose outlines have been reported by Human Rights Watch (HRW).

"These murderous forces participated with the Malian army in an airdrop operation on a market in the village of Moura, where they confronted several mujahideen before encircling this locality for five days and killing hundreds of innocent civilians," it said.

It is the first time the GSIM, an Al-Qaeda-linked alliance and the biggest jihadist network in the Sahel, has announced the capture of a Wagner operative.
...
HRW says Malian soldiers and white foreign soldiers, who did not speak French, executed 300 civilians in Moura between March 27-31.
...
Wagner has also been accused of abuses in the Central African Republic.
...
Last week an army document and officials said a Russian national operating alongside Malian soldiers had been killed by a roadside bomb in the centre of the conflict-torn Sahel state.

The death marked the first confirmed Russian fatality in Mali.
