gsgsgs oh nonsense Japan is much closer. Ishigaki is 170 km vs 305 km for the PRC. Okinawa Prefecture is part of Japan. The USA has no need to use atomic weapons. No matter how you say it the truth is these islands are part of Okinawa which is part of Japan. If the PRC gets away with this they will interfere with ship and aircraft traffic from Okinawa. The people of Okinawa have noted this hostile move from PRC. It is not how you win friends. In fact most Chinese hate the people of Okinawa. Get this there will be no war unless the Peoples Republic fires the first shot.

YeahRight you get so much from whale niku. Mercury and other dangerous pollutants like PCBs and cadmium can be found in dolphin and small whale meat. The people that sell this meat are the same type liars that have been hurting Japan and the world for years.

Japan and then the USA will defend these islands. It is not the islands but the principle of letting the Peoples Republic of China steal part of Japan. The Americans do not need atomic weapons to beat them. I am pretty sure how it will be done but remain quiet. Claiming our airspace and backing it up is a declaration of war. So in a sense we have already been attacked.

It was fracked before the LDP regained power. I bet Tokyo Power knew all along and their exces got part of the money skimmed off of the workers. So of course the government will do nothing.

Smith they are very different. It has nothing to do with freedom of speech but security matters. I this is allow to continue the PRC will fly their military aircraft right off the coast of Japan and it will be "legal". We are so close to war now. One mistake is all it takes. One zealot and we will be in hot war.

ochan expressing a wrong opinion gets you prison or death in the Peoples Republic. So they let Extreme Nationalist feelings come out. However that is a dangerous game. What happens when the people of PRC do not get the promised results or lose a political or military battle? The answer is revolution from what appears to be loyal nationals.

iworld the ADIZ goes right up to the Ryukyu islands. Their EEZ goes up to 12 miles of Kume Island. They are claiming the regulation of who and what flies in their new ADIZ. They can fly their military aircraft to very close to Japan, Republic of China and Republic of Korea. It would make defense much harder. This is only the beginning. This is a game changer and indeed a hostile act.
YuriOtaniDec. 01, 2013 - 02:53AM JST
iWorld PRC just claimed an enormous amount of airspace. The US ADIZ is only for aircraft flying to the USA. PRC wants total control and what they did is a hostile act. If they get away with this what will they do next?
YuriOtaniNov. 30, 2013 - 02:26PM JST
Flyfalcon have you checked the size and type ships of the PRC? How about the Peoples Air Force? In any confrontational I would want to send to provocation "This is the JS Sawayuki, you may draw when ready pardner"

USNinJapan2 what I am saying is Okinawa people would not go to the mainland to protest at American bases. Second I know of no groups that would do this action. We are a peaceful people! I think they were fireworks like the ones used on Camp Zama before and again, the Okinawa people would NEVER do this act!

Times change pochan and we have to change with them. Kadena AFB will be the big player. The Marines will be second string. The US Navy will be a key player and all three will get sdf support. The PRC is about to start a war. I believe there will be a war and soon.

globalwatcher times change my friend and my friends and family on Okinawa are pissed at the PRC. What they did was an regressive move against Japan including Okinawa. It was an aggressive move against all nations in the western Pacific. As for Marines most of them are nice guys and girls. It is the small percentage that gives Marines a bad rep. Same in America, Okies are ice people for the most part. Again the vast majority are OK.
Times change and perhaps soon they will claim some of the Okinawa islands and make a zone over them as well.
YuriOtaniNov. 29, 2013 - 02:52PM JST
Not the Okinawan People since they would shoot at a Marine base at home. Then again violence is not in our nature. Dunno on who fired the fireworks.
YuriOtaniNov. 29, 2013 - 11:48AM JST
globalwatcher PRC has a small second class Air force and Navy. Export models from Russia or home made copies. Their troops will be useless as they can not swim. They have no air tankers and anytime over the target will be limited.
YuriOtaniNov. 29, 2013 - 10:26AM JST
globalwatcher PRC does not have the ability to take on Japan. Add Republic of Korea and the United States and the rest will be history. Oh staying "calm" does not mean giving in to thugs. The PRC will fire first and claim otherwise. I am sure if we all stick tougher we can win.
YuriOtaniNov. 29, 2013 - 09:52AM JST
PRC really wants a war and they will have the honor of the first shot. SU 30 export model, American, Japanese and Korean pilots will run up a score. PRC has managed to make Japan and Korea allies.
YuriOtaniNov. 28, 2013 - 02:08PM JST
The Iraqi military armed with the same had numbers over the Americans. A over million man army, two perhaps three to one. In any case they do not have numbers, only man power.

Hmm I have trained with US forces, we were always meant as a team. Take a close look at the PRC ships. Obsolete trash! Like slow fat whales, man the harpoons!
YuriOtaniNov. 28, 2013 - 12:13PM JST
pochan giving in to aggression does not make peace. If they get away with this they will claim Okinawa. Then the other islands, PRC will push until they have their war. It must really piss them off that the USA is sending a clear signal they will defend Japan. Bravo Zulu to the USA!!
