    Don't sound untelligent so pease converse with him privately, .

    Dont sound unintelligent? OK...I'll be "dumb" for you alone......

    You and 5petals crowded this thread.

    You live in a box and no matter how much people try to educate you to reality you refuse to listen.....

    THAT is not on me....it's on you.

    you wandered into a discussion of how the word "landslide" should be interpreted, presenting the number of votes each candidate garnered.

    I wandered? OMG whatever......He isn't communist and even if he was it wouldn't matter because a Japanese Communist is no where even close to being the same as what YOU are thinking they are.

    Could you please explain what a Communist Sympathizer to Muslims is.

    Dont bother...."trueOki wanna" is just a conspiracy theorist at heart.

    The folks in Okinawa have a higher chance of getting skin cancer or dying from obesity than being attacked from either China or NK.

    @Octagon...

    NK has already flied rocket over Okinawa

    Only over the ocean, not over the islands themselves, and anything coming from NK, while scary due to their inaccuracy, is really nothing to worry about down here. The folks in Tokyo should be more worried.

    You are always splitting hairs.

    You really should look in a mirror some day when you talk about splitting hairs. Doing the same thing in your reply.

    Onaga won based only upon his base in Naha. That is a fact. He is NOT popular everywhere in Okinawa That is a fact too. It's just a matter of time before he too shoots himself in the foot.

    Be nice for people to use adjectives appropriate to the situation; 当 翁長 雄志 360,820票 Onaga......... 仲井真弘多 261,076票..........Nakaima........ 下地 幹郎 69,447票 Shimoji....... 喜納 昌吉 7,821票 Kina

    Hardly a "landslide" when one takes into consideration that Onaga won based upon the vote of the city of Naha. He was a popular Mayor, but that does not translate into being a popular Gov.

    They surrendered easily without fight when they were invaded. It is no surprise because they were passive and peaceful people.

    While this is an image that people world-wide have come to believe as 100% fact let me tell you that it is not totally true. There was conflict here on the island during the period when the 1st Sho Emperor consolidated the 3 Kingdoms that eventually became the Ryukyu Kingdom.

    On a separate note, do not ever believe either that they are "always" peaceful. Look at the Koza riots as an example.

    I'm pretty sure Yubaru was talking about hand held fans like the ones his newly appointed female member got busted for, not supporters.

    Yes, I was, sorry for the confusion. I would love to get my hands on a few and show him the door!

    Abe has said he would resign if his coalition - which holds two-thirds of the lower house seats - fails to win a simple majority, an outcome experts dismissed as almost impossible

    Either this or when his tummy starts acting up again. It's an ego trip that is shaping up to be him potentially shooting himself in the foot or worse. He THINKS the people are with him, but his policies have done little if anything to help the common folk down on the street, in fact they are worse off than before.

    I wonder who created this enormous public debt in the first place.

    I find that hard to believe....in fact it's incredulous to me.

    We explored every nook and cranny of the place, its why I asked you where you lived because it seems we were all over.

    In reality there are two (maybe more) Okinawa's, the one near the bases and the one where there are none, and are not close. I live in the mid-to-southern end of the island, near Naha, but not in Naha. Military folks do not frequent the area, because there is little if anything for them.

    It's different being here temporarily and maybe seeing at an adventure vs living here day to day. I and others like me, see things differently, doesnt make it better, nor worse, just different.

    Let this be a warning to all you guys out there. In Japan you are guilty until proven innocent. Keep your hands high in the trains fellas.

    Here is something to remember, file this in the back of your heads guys. If you EVER get accused of being a perv on a train, face the offender, give them TWO of your business cards, (only one and they will think it's a fake) and be proactive.

    Running away, trying to hide, shows your guilt.

    Well you definetly know more than me about Okinawa,

    That was most gracious, thank you.

    but I think once you go over a certian mark in Japan, you just see it for what it is, some call it jaded. Youll find no matter how long you stay here, they always know more than you, and they hide that very well.

    Those who call it jaded are confusing themselves with reality. Also I can say with quite certainty that I actually do know more than many of the people here about their own history. Sad part is that they study very little about it themselves, and I can also state with quite a bit of confidence that I know the island better than most as well. I had some excellent teachers and professors, both the "real" one's and one's that are professors in the university of life.

    I will add as well that I know quite a few Japanese and Okinawan's that know a heck of a lot more about the USA, (my home country) than I do, and I applaud them for their knowledge as they do for mine.of theirs, it's called mutual respect.

    Im curious where you can go in Okinawa and never see a gaijin? The island is only 60 miles long. NTA takes up allot of the north. You mean on the China sea side? You think Okinawa is your home now?

    Let me clarify, I did not specify "gaijin" you did, I said US Military or "Y" numbers. Okinawa is my 2nd home, daini furusato, and I learned a long time ago that I will always be viewed as a "gaijin" by those around me, even if and when I took Japanese citizenship, and you know what, I am fine with that, because to think that I alone can change their ideas and thoughts and misconceptions would be a waste of my life. The people that "know" me "know" me and accept me as who and I and not my "gaijinness", the one's that don't know...screw them, they don't know what they are missing out on.

    I can change my neck of the woods and to a large extent have, and that is all that I care about, because it starts the ripple effect. The rest I dont worry about, having too much fun.

    Planners allotted 150 billion yen for venues in Tokyo’s Olympics bid but that estimate more than doubled late last year after recalculation.

    Abe should take responsibility for this, an obvious scam to just win the bid, when reality was known to be different.

    RESIGN Abe, give the Olympics to Turkey, spend the money on the folks in Tohoku. After they are taken care of, then bid for the Olympics and show the world Japan's hospitality.........(tongue in cheek)

    I think your experiencing some exclusion e

    Now let me drop the other shoe for you since you refuse to accept what is a fact take this; I live in Okinawa, have lived here for lets say well before the current century started, have worked for MAJOR Japanese corporations (mainland type) MAJOR Japanese corporations (Okinawan type), have ZERO to do with the military now, and live in an area where I can go literally months at a time without even seeing any military types, let alone a "Y" number.

    Exclusion? Heck no, I have forgotten more than many if not most even know about Okinawa and I am not jaded about them either. They are a wonderful people, yet like any people of any culture, they have their failings and weak points too and their work ethics are one of them.

    Here is a suggestion, have the accuser replace the guy in jail, serve out the rest of his term, plus another 3 to 5 for lying about it in the first place.

    @5petals....you have some pretty weird notions about the Okinawan people, but quite a bit of misses to go along with a few hits.

    Okinawan's work ethics are nothing to really brag about, in fact it's due much in fault to their poor work ethics that have brought them to where they are today, and that is not a compliment either. As much as the people are kind, friendly, warm, and a bunch of other positive adjectives, much of what is wrong here is due to having laid back work (study) ethics.

    Many mainlanders have an extremely difficult working with Okinawan's because of it, and that doesnt mean just here on the island, but the one's who work in mainland too.

    now they should try to force businesses to bring their wages up.

    I for one would love to hear the details of just how you think this should be done.

    Okinawa is probably the most important land that is under Japan's control, it is closest to its main sea trade lanes that it relies on for energy imports, as well as being nearly equally distant from mainland China, Taiwan, Korean Peninsula, as well as the main islands of Japan: Honshu and Kyushu.

    Don't tell the Japanese in mainland this, they won't believe you.

    The Satsuma clan invaded and conquered their island, and as Japan did in WW2 to everybody they conquered,

    Things go back a heck of a lot longer than when the islands were annexed officially by Japan in the later half of the 1800's prior to the Meiji Restoration.

    The Japanese did not "invade" Okinawa in WWII, it was already a prefecture of Japan. They did however subjugate the local population and did unspeakable horrors upon them.

    You miss the point on the rest of it, and the Ryukyu's (not Okinawa), if you are going to try to make your points please use the right term for the islands.

    The rest of what you need to know is searchable, as to write it here would take volumes.
