    There are protestors on sight, we need to be patient and wait.

    They have been there for what, 10 years, and the "agreement" has been waited upon nearly 20 years now. I guess if we take your path nothing will be accomplished until the 22nd Century right?

    You flip-flop one this issue so much that it's sincerely hard to believe anything you write.

    This insane STUPID ""cleanup"" has to end right now,

    While the cleanup is nasty business at best, leaving it alone is even more stupid in the long run. People can bitch and moan all they want about the screw-up's, and many are justified to say the least, it has to be done.

    Now, getting the job done the right way is another discussion altogether and it appears to me at least that the Japanese should be asking for and getting, international assistance in this effort as leaving it alone would become an even bigger disaster and a world wide one at that.

    Shouldn't this guy be facing 10 years in prison for releasing "state" secrets?

    To the naysayers....

    Mandela...because the man changed not only S.Africa, but the world as well with his dedication, devotion, and desire for peace, and meeting the man over dinner would be an honor beyond belief.

    Gandhi....because I would love the opportunity to be enlightened by the man and the message that he believed in.

    Mom....because she passed away and I miss her.

    Smith you do not understand. The people of Okinawa get the final say in the matter.

    Yuri you do not understand, the people living in Okinawa won't have the final say, it will be the government, one way or another. And I am quite certain that I have been living here longer than you have by far, and the decision affects me more than it does you in Oklahoma.

    It's easy to comment from afar, and to be quite honest you have flip-flopped so often on this issue that I don't think even you know what you want anymore.

    What's going to happen is going to happen, this is all a side show in the bigger picture.

    It is this feeling of suppression that motivated people to yarn for freedom and true democracy that mainland Japanese seemed to be enjoying, reborn now with the peace constitution, thus winding up to a great social movement to demand Okinawa's return to Japan, only to find that Japan was a U.S. vassal after all acting as its masters dictated.

    Pray tell then why dont the people in Sasebo, Iwakuni, Misawa, Yokosuka, and other numerous "mainland" bases go nuts about the bases being in "thier" backyards? Why aren't they clamoring for "freedom and democracy" from the oppression of having to host US Military bases?

    Why is it that the people who complain the most about the bases in Okinawa come down here from "mainland"?

    I have said all along that Futenma has to be closed and moved, it really is a disaster waiting to happen, but, the Okinawan people included here, are responsible as well for the situation as it is, and like it or not, ever since the flare up of trouble with China, the "locals" have been quiet as church-mice about the bases.

    Futenma sits on private lands that were forcefully requisitioned from private owners Mind you, the U.S. has no right at all from the beginning to demand a replacement for stolen goods."

    Cripes.....this could be said about any number of bases in countless locations around the planet. And let's not forget that the landowners are compensated, quite well in fact, for the land the bases are on.

    One rarely if ever hears about the landowners "complaining" about getting their land back. (exceptions are the "one-tsubo" types who ONLY got the land to complain)

    Oh and another thing, learn to point your fingers in the right direction when making uninformed comments like this; it's the JAPANESE government that made the agreements.

    I suppose with your logic the Native American's who traded away Manhattan have a "right" to get their land back too. Time to get in the 21st century I do believe.

    I find that hard to believe, I can understand in combat situation but not in a base in japan that there is no checks and balances that would show some one absent from service duty.

    Did you notice I wrote "American" and that's it? You assumed military, that is your "bad".

    @Steve...no one gave a crap about the environment in that area until the base proposal came up, and there have been problems in that area for decades with red soil run-off (caused by JAPANESE construction not military base expansion).

    Nakaima is just changing his spots again...first for the move....than against (to get re-elected)...now for it again (doesn't care anymore) and remember he IS LDP too!

    Once it's "agreed" upon it will probably be another 20 years before anything actually happens anyway.

    The plant, which has large green leaves, red berries and white flowers, has been a feature of Okinawan food for centuries and still grows in the wild.

    This is very misleading to say the least. Getto is not used in Okinawan food regularly, not at all. It is pretty much ONLY used for wrapping mochi, and typically only around one time of the year.

    Yes the article says that later, however this makes it sound like they use it in more things, they dont.

    If it was a military person surely they would have been discovered missing by now so makes me think its a murdered local.

    Which tells me you know little of what goes on down in Okinawa. There are "missing" American's as well, and until there is DNA testing done to identify, hopefully, the remains speculation about the who is inappropriate.

    is heavily weighted toward construction projects.

    "A Bridge Too Far!" And to those that know what "that" was about, the end was a disaster. Not a good omen.

    It disturbs me that this is not dealt with differently. By acquiescing to the demands in the letter, the writer now will feel empowered and who knows what his or her next step will be.

    OK I get why the BOE "officially" cancelled the bonenkai, but what I really want them to do is all of them go out and have a Merry Christmas party or something else instead.

    The cops (oopps did I just say that) have to do their job and protect the children along with the parents. Society can not be held terrorized by one person like this.

    Socially speaking, Japan is most certainly a patriarchal society with very clear-cut gender roles. Men work long hours to provide money for their families, while women stay home and raise the kids

    .Really?!?!?! Rolling eyes here, then tell me why all those guys are lined up at pachinko parlors at 9AM opening time.

    For a woman to show true incentive in the workplace .......... is a very progressive concept to them.

    That's only because the old oyaji's are unwilling to realize they have a HUGE pool of talent in those women that they are letting go to waste.

    Fortunately times are changing and along with it these stereotypes have to get shot down too

    How many have you helped have a better life BTW?

    How many hundreds is more like it. I help save lives DAILY. There is a HELL of a lot more to life than just being focused on money and YOUR perception of success.

    USN, look, when you live on an island with no trains, no decent public transportation, with a population of over 1 million people, and nearly 800,000 registered vehicles, it makes sense, both economically and ecologically to drive a kei.

    I know plenty of "rich" folks who own their Jaguar's, Lexus's, Crown's, Caddy's etc etc, who also drive their kei to work as well.

    Maybe they know something that you don't?

    BTW my turbo-charged Lupin is fun to drive too!

    where there's only one expressway and the official limit is 90,

    The "official" limit is 80 not 90.

    Apart from being deathtraps, they are a nuisance on the road. Too slow and not enough power to accelerate when needed

    BS 1000 times over! I have a K-car that will beat just about every "regular" car off the line. You are talking out your butt!

    It's the driver NOT the car! I would put my "K" up against just about any production car on the line today in a quarter mile test of speed. I will also add that mine is a production model without any added enhancements.
