My guy wonder if they have an automatic censored function. Let them have their French submarines.

He was thinking of the sky-crane CH-54 and he flew CH-47s. He is a 100 percent disabled warrior, give him a break!
Alright CH-53 Sea Stallions which are in service. He got the number wrong. Both of us think the CH-47 and CH-53 would be of better service. FYI he did check out on the S-64 the civilian version. It is still flying.
We do think use of the Osprey is for propaganda.

My guy says it is easy for an enemy to get tone and shoot down an Osprey. The amount of heat its emits is second to none. He also just told me the Osprey was too expensive to risk losing in a combat zone. it was up to the Army's CH-47 helicopters and Marine and Navies CH-54 aircraft to do the actual missions.
As for the Ospreys, he says they have a very large down-wash and may put unstable buildings in danger. He thinks the Marines should of used their CH-54 aircraft for this mission.

I wonder how close the US aircraft get to the Russian ships? Do you think only the Russians do this?

Yet there is the law of unintended consequences. When the US leaves NATO it will have to deal with Russia on its own. My guess is the poor eastern nations will come to some sort of accommodation with Moscow. President Putin will laugh with delight as the threat to the Motherland will be eliminated. Better yet he will be able to deal with Turkey any way he sees fit! The USA will lose all influence in Europe and there may actually be Russian bases in the former NATO countries. Oh very well done!
In the Far East Abe will need a new job and the new government of Japan will send delegations to China and Russia to work out their problems. Worse yet the new trade deal with America will force Japan to turn to China. South Korea will be in trouble! Japan will not help them, so they will have to turn to China. When the Americans are gone from Japan and Korea think the days of the little fat man will be short.
About the trade, does Donald Trump know about the World Trade Organization?
If he gets his stupid way the US will be isolated from the rest of the world. If you think the US economy is bad now just wait!
Get what I want a Okinawa free of American forces.

Christopher, so Japan now needs to place defensive missiles on Hokkaido due to the new Russian threat. Build more ships for the Maritime Self Defense Force. More aircraft for the Air self Defense Force. More Ground Forces for the Ground Self Defense Forces. Of course if Trump is elected and withdraws US Forces, Japan will have to renounce Article #9 and reinvent the Imperial Forces. Might happen anyway with the pressures being placed on our nation by China and Russia.
I really hate it but it may come to a time when our foes give Japan no other choice!

The anti Assad forces are actually pro Saudi and Turkey forces that want to capture Syria. Then they can build their pipeline to Europe and wipe out a pocket of Shiite Muslims.

The new base is a knife at our throats! It is an offensive base that can be used to attack Japan. Now Japan will have to resort in kind against this nonsense. So Abe, there is no chance of a peace treaty and why does Japan buy gas and oil from Russia when we can buy it from America or Alaska. It would help the balance of trade and the US wants the money and not likely to cut off supplies.
YuriOtaniMar. 31, 2016 - 06:09AM JST
Yubaru is right Yonaguni is part of the Okinawa Prefecture which is part of Japan. There is no dispute it is part of Japan and the radar is part of a common sense defense. Article #9 says we defend Japan, so how does this not defend Japan?

tinawatanabe it is Australia's EEZ and they can argue that Japan is poaching the whale resource. True the whales are protected. Then again Japan is going against International Law sending whaling ships down there to harvest whales. Australia should of halted the hunt and sent it to the International court.

Next time Australia, send out your coast guard to protect your EEZ. Show some backbone against Tokyo! What the whaling fleet is doing is illegal by Australian law. It is against the regulations of the whaling states as well. It should be easy to stop them from whaling. Show some backbone!

So the prosecutors office just needs the right evidence, video, dna, etc. Then comes the indictment and trial and if they have convincing evidence, he is going to prison. After five years he will get turned over to the US military and get court martial and separated with the dishonorable discharge. What a sad prospect for a young man who could not control himself. Upon returning in America he will be broke with dim prospects for a good job. Am not sure about destroying the young man. Part of me does not like it at all. There should be the possibility of redemption but it will not happen or not in the United States. He will be almost certainly forced into a life of crime.

The "fun" never ends in American politics. Sort of reminds me of young boys in Jr. High school trying to out do one another. First with the "small hands" and now with the release of porn pictures of each others wives. Americans are so immature and this shows they suffer from sexual immaturity! Then again I hear so many spots on radio and tv about men's performance.

bass4funk American have to understand they are not in their home country. This includes me in America. I try to be extra good not wanting to see the insides of an American jail. What you consider to be a "fair trial" is not the same as in America. This young man will have justice Japanese style. We have to wait on the Prosecution. If it goes to trial, he is most likely going to prison. There is nothing the American military can do to prevent this from happening. The Japanese government will insist he serve his time in Japanese prison.
