Obama just signed the death knell for his chance of being a two term President and I am glad, the sooner we can rid of him, the better.

What we are seeing is a President running for a second term of President of these United States. It's all politics..........

At present, everything he does or says, is pure campaigning - he is reminding everyone that he wants to get a second term as President. - If my vote means anything, he will be a one term President.

Today's problem would never have hppened, if Truman had let McArthur do his thing. One bomb deliveed in th right place would have stopped the entire fracas of the 50's. Now it is too late to even think like we did in 1945.

Ever since the Cairo Accords of 1943 Japan has tried to justify their very existence and CVhina has swallowed and tried to ignore Japan's needeling. I look for China to give Japan a present! A super pletonium Nuclear Bomb right in the middle of the Ginza - and there will be no more Japanese government -or anything else.

I predict the Self Defense Forces will bolster their Forces prefetory to morphing the "Forces" into a Imperial Army - there-by destroying Japan's No War Constitution - which Japan has wanted to do all along. Japan, don't ypu realize China ia already a "Super-power".........

For centuries the Kingdom of the Ryukyu Islands owned the Senkaku Islands amd actually the Ryukyu Islands still own these Islands (rocks) I am sure the Ryukyu Islands would share with the Chinese, who they like very much, however Japan and China will never get along and Japan continually breeds a scab on thier nose. I have just returned from Okinawa and I am working to establish independence for the Ryukyu Islands and tomorrow I will be in Washington D.C. to strike a blow for the Okinawan people who are the salts of the earth

For the first time in years I disagree with Sarge. Hatoyama is dropping in the polls as he is completely inept as PM and the Japanese people are saying it is so. I also contiinue to say that if the Marines at Futenma are to be moved it is logical that they returned to the States and the whole of the island of Okinawa should be returned to the Ryukyuan people. I will be in Okinawa in two weeks and you will hear from me "on the ground."
Posted in: What do you think of Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama's decision to kick SDP leader Mizuho Fukushima out of the cabinet because she disagreed with his plan to relocate the U.S. Marine base at Futenma within Okinawa?
The_MarionMay. 24, 2010 - 12:49AM JST
Vulcan: Your likening the Ryukyuan as being "caged withoccupation" is excellent. Still, I feel we should be helping the Ryukyuan to independent thinking. I love these people!

Actually the answer to this whole thorny issue has been staring us in the face for years in the form of a most informative book by Robert Eldrige "The Origins of the Bilateral Problem - Okinawa Postwar U.S.- Japan Relations 1945 -- 1952Read the book and know of the "Secret Deals" that both the USA and Japan cover up. Frankly, is is Okinawa that should be made privy to what is being done to their island. This is why I continually end my posting with these words- "Lo the poor Ryukyuans"
The_MarionMay. 03, 2010 - 01:01AM JST
This whole situation could be solved immediately if Japan would grant Independence to the Government of the Ryukyu Islands, who in turn would let the U.S. Military whether they needed any further help from the Americans and ask the rest return to the States. It was supposed to be that way, but Japan, through secret deals brought on the problems of today. This is what the Cairo Accords was all about, but unfortunately Roosevelt died and Japan greedily sought a better deal.

A good entrepreneur works for himself and has only himself to blame if he isn't doing too well. I can go anyplace and I can make a dollar as I offer my face and tell only the truth --I never try to fool anyone and I am not afraid to share.

Sarge uses very few words to get his point across and I always seek Sarge's comments, but in the case of Obama, he is a regular motor-mouth and there is a wave of questioning his legitimacy and today we are seeing the word "impeachment" being mentioned very often. Frankly speaking, I feel we are on the edge of a great depression.

The_MarionMar. 14, 2010 - 04:22AM JST
Obama continues to sink lower in the polls and I wonder who is going to mention impeachment first. I suggest he is a one time President and the final three years are going to negate all the good feelings we generated in WWII.
I voted for Ron Paul and this would have been a better ride.

I am a Marine who has lived on Okinawa for some 68 years and I am a member of a Okinawan family having married a Okinawan some 42 years ago and I ave never had any problems with the Ryukyuan people - Most troubles come from the Japanese and or the Japanese Corporate groups who are actually rtrying to get a airstrip built in the Henoko are to service the Japanese Summer Homes in the Arume area.Every Okinawan I know is vary happy with the Marines - only the Japanese are making the noise about us. Remember the Secret Deals done by the Japanese and reported by Nishiyama

Jesus did live in Auam Ethiopia for 15 years before he went to be crucified and he and Solomon built the Church of Mary and Jesus did have three childre by Mary Magdalene and I have a 2000 year old icon that depict all I have written above and from the icon it appears that Mary Magalene was a black as was the wife of Solomon (she was the queen of Shiba.) Solomon was the son of David.
