    I had the most memorable and important day of my life last friday, where me and my now wife could celebrate our wedding. We had a small ceremony and then we had an enjoying weekend together. 
     
    I'm happy to have her by my side through life

    It does happen to any country.
     
    But can you find people abusing Lee Zii Jia in his IG because "his face looks arrogant" in a match that does not involve Indonesia? Sometimes an online abuse campaign started with the most ridiculous reasons

    Yeah that's just him being unhappy. BWF did not use their terms consistent enough and Ygor complained using his own interpretation (which is clearly wrong)
     
     
    Others did reject the allocation. The first they asked is as the Oceania runner-up, but they rejected.
    One player from Tahiti complained that their federation (as the semifinalist) were not invited by BWF.
     
     
    And as there are no more Oceanian teams, they go to team rankings. I believe with the strict quarantine just don't see the trip worth it and also won't bother going. It is interesting they did not mention in the press release, probably the shady BWF didn't even bother inviting them too...

    It has been a day since the qualification documents are available for some sports and we are not arguing over how to interpret them, so I would say good start.

    To be frank, everyone mixes politics and sports. It is not limited to West. I am sure all of us can collectively list instances involving all the major countries.

    In Pakistan, PM Imran Khan, cricket WC winning captain, has dissolved National Assembly after opposition parties moved a no-confidence motion against him. Opposition parties have rejected this and has ‘elected’ Shahbaz Sharif, brother of ex-PM Nawaz Sharif, as the new PM. There are reports of clashes in National Assembly as well.

    Dolby got a reaction from phelps in Shooting ISSF World Cup 2022   
    Following the respective decision of the IOC Executive Board and a meeting with the IOC President,  the ISSF decided that athletes from the Russian Federation and Belarus will not be allowed to take part in ISSF Championships.
     
    This decision entered into force at 16.00 CET on March 1, 2022 and is valid until upon further notice.

    This is the problem, we don't have an escalation ladder. You annex Crimea, no problem pass us some more of the Vodka while we enjoy the Football World Cup. You do peacekeeping in Donbas, aah tough luck Ukrainians, busy booking my tickets to Moscow. Tanks surrounding Kyiv, that is it. No Russian shall even think of sports. 
     
    Also, need to figure out how to allow local protests while maintaining sports code. For example, for us tanks surrounding Kyiv is war of conquest but I am sure for Ukrainians even Crimea was war of conquest. And what if some nation wants to boycott another nation for some other things. Take for an example, if some nation wants to boycott Qatar WC, should they be allowed to do so? What should be the sanctions, if any, they face? IOC even threatened consequences if a nation skipped Tokyo Olympics. (Not sure if they followed up on it or not).

    Yes, we don’t care for Ukraine that is why we are plainly saying Russia must stop violence. That is why we are sending humanitarian aid to Ukraine. 
     
    Still waiting to know what concrete steps has EU/NATO taken.

    And what has NATO/EU exactly done to help Ukraine? Apart from empty speeches? NATO watched silently when Crimea was annexed. Everybody knew that Russia was going to invade Ukraine but did they do anything? Tell me how many NATO soldiers are there in Ukraine? Sanctions on Russia excludes energy sector, which is Russia's major export. They were even debating if diamonds and hand bags should be exempted or not. And yet it is India's "not my problem" approach which is preventing peace. 
     
    We depend a lot on Russia for defence equipment. If Pakistan and/or China try some mischief, how much can we rely on USA/NATO? We know we are on our own, which was more than visible in the initial days of Delta wave, and we will do what is best in our interest. World does the same.

    honestly in the global context no one cares what India has to say. Not a relevant player despite huge population and despite having nukes. I don’t have anything against India, but it is just reality

    I am perfectly fine with India being neutral. I think our govt has handled a difficult situation quite well. But difference between Indian and Chinese position is while we are calling for an end to violence, Chinese are talking about Russia's legitimate security demands.
