The last thing I want is a vehicle running MS Windows. I don't want a buggy vehicle, I don't want Microsoft in charge of it, and I don't want to have to wait for them to fix the bugs. I want something reliable and open: Linux or BSD.
In fact, holding another citizenship in addition to your US citizenship is normally disqualifying.
I do wonder what they do with military personnel from friendly countries engaged in liaison activities, some of whom seem to be embedded in ways that give them access to secret information.
While the full extent of atrocities was not known until after the war, that massive atrocities focussed on Jews were being committed was in fact known to the allies by the end of 1942. For example, the Polish government in exile submitted a report on the extermination of the Jews to the United Nations in December, 1942.
Not true. In Japan statements that are harmful are actionable even if they are true, if they are not in the public interest. If you reveal defects in a product, for example, that's in the public interest. If you say that the CEO wets his bed, even if true, that's just gratuitously embarassing him - it doesn't have anything to do with whether people should buy the company's products, so it is actionable.

The defective system was nominated by its managers for the Premier's Award for Innovation and Excellence in the Civil Service.
They say that you still need to open the hive for brood inspection, which they typically do twice a year. They are advertising htis as reducing effort but not as a system in which you never need to open the hive.
Israel has NEVER restricted the supply of staple foods to Gaza and presently imposes no restrictions whatever on the supply of food to Gaza. Nor do humanitarian organizations, such as the UN, not exactly Israel's best friend, say that the blockade has caused any humanitarian crisis in Gaza.
In any case, were there restrictions on the transfer of supplies from Israel, the Gazans could get them via Egypt.
As best I could tell from the video, he didn't deliberately damage the machine. He was checking it out in the same way a consumer who had had experience of shoddy construction would.
Also, I wonder about the idea that those machines were to be used at the trade show. According to the article, the machines were located in retail stores, in the same city as the trade show, but not at the trade show location. So it isn't the case that he got onto the trade show floor in advanced and messed with the machines that they had set up for the show.
