American rice tastes like bleep! The Japanese people want yummy tasting food. American brand cars are too big for the Japanese consumer, like where am I to park it? Second the JCI costs too much money.

Smith the people of Okinawa do not want this new base. In fact they want all of the Marines to leave. The Air Force base also makes Okinawa a target. In our history the people of Okinawa have been dominated by others. The Americans say they keep Okinawa "free" but we suffer under them. Japan has the 3rd largest Navy in the world, we believe it is enough to deter Chinese aggression. If the American bases on Okinawa were removed it would remove a knife on the Chinese throat. Again and again the people of Okinawa do not want these bases. If America is the shinning hope for freedom they have to respect the freedom of others.
jj1067 it is not "anti American, the people of Okinawa want their island back.
Yubaru, any American atomic attack on North Korea will kill millions of Japanese. Take a look at the prevailing high altitude winds. Within 48 hours deadly radiation will be falling over Northern Japan. Fukushima is nothing compared to this sort of radiation. So wiping North Korea will kill most of Northern Japan.

Smith you miss the point as the majority in Japan are imposing the American bases on the minority. Tyranny of the majority

Wonders what were the weather conditions at the time of the accident? I need a lot more data to even think about the cause of the crash. As for Asiana pilots they should be presumed to have done their duty until proven they were at fault.

What is there to talk about? The Republic of Korea does not want Japans help for defense. I say Japan needs to remain NEUTRAL as demanded by our Peace Constitution.

Sea Sheppard needs to be placed on alert for deployment. Same old lies from the Government of Japan. They kill whales for food not research.

This does nothing for the people of Japan. The whole world theory is an lie and only the business owners make more profit.

Not sure what else the people of Okinawa can do to resist the continued American military occupation. The nation that preaches freedom but denies it to others. I suppose there are other ways to resist than direct confrontation. The people of Okinawa can refuse to cooperate.

The Japanese consumer needs to reject cars and products built in 3rd world nations. The Japanese people need jobs as well and outsourcing only makes the rich more money.

Because of the 787 I can fly into Osaka or Nagoya instead of Narita or Haneda. The Tokyo airports are overcrowded and my home is in Okinawa.

Lizz what if the wedding is in a small town and no one will bake a cake, provide flowers or take pictures? The religion is being used to make the reason reason or their being bigots. On the small town how about being refused service at the service station, pharmacy or supermarket?

If the USA allows the discrimination of Lesbians, gay, bisexual and transgender due to religious faith where will it stop? Perhaps other groups will be refused services as well. There are people in the USA that to this day do not like Japanese people. I have been called rude things in every state of the country but these people can not prevent me from buying in stores. Lets look at this closer Adolf Hitler used the discrimination against the Jews, gypsies and homosexuals to gain political control. He did not seize power but was elected to office. In the USA the Republican party is doing the same and using LGBT, Muslims, Hispanics and other groups. What will they use to hold onto power and maintain the fear?
