Black Sabbath, I will be happy on our return move to Okinawa. American politics is too strange? Trump makes Abe, Putin and Xi Jinping look GREAT!

My Okinawa relatives are not in graves as per the American sense. Then again the Americans destroyed the family graves and my relatives that survived the war on on the shelf in a Buddhist shrine. So you suggest we embargo the USA. Well unlike Russia there is too many economic ties and it would just not work. The best Japan could do is kick their military out. Again the Americans have some special hold on Japan. Politicians that try to get rid of them are thrown out of office. However Russia does not have these abilities. However you are right my parents did not like Americans. Charity for them was letting my father go through their garbage to put food on the table.

I think Japan needs to have an embargo against Russian Products. There is a massive surplus of both gas and oil. Remember do not feed the Russian Bear!
YuriOtaniAug. 26, 2015 - 12:02PM JST
As God is my witness there will never be peace between Japan and Russia unless those islands are returned. Japan does not need their gas or oil. As for their military, Japan can beat then in any non atomic war. Any atomic attack on Japan will get Russia attacked by the USA. Putin can bear his chest and thump, he is a cheap thug.

Americans are caught up in the nudity equals sex mentality. There is nothing obscene with women's breasts. In the old days women went topless all over Asia. Then there is all of the slang because many people have to change the name due to being prudish. So guys how about relaxing there is nothing to be seen here, move along.

Alexey Kulikov no northern territories, no peace treaty. As for attacking Russia it will not happen. We are a peaceful nation and will respond only to real attacks.

The South has lost track of garbage cans that can submerge? I would think they should talk better to Japan which has a Maritime SDF that specializes in hunting ex Soviet trash.

Boring women's breasts are only obsense in the sick western mind.
YuriOtaniAug. 24, 2015 - 12:13PM JST
yamashi I would be happy to see the last of the American military and rejoin the SDF. However unless Japan grows a spine it will never happen. Clue the American bases do not defend Japan but are Japan paid for bases for USA training. As for depending on Russian gas and oil, the lesson of the Ukraine should be used. Once they have us hooked they will use it to turn the screws on Japan.
YuriOtaniAug. 24, 2015 - 11:23AM JST
yamashi I am use to the deception of the American military as a person from Okinawa and as an Officer in the Maritime Self Defense Force. I do not expect that the Americans will ever disclose the danger they have placed the Japanese civilian population.

YuriOtaniAug. 24, 2015 - 10:23AM JST
What about the Japanese that live close to the base? The fire may be emitting dangerous fumes. The USA is not disclosing what was in the building for what reason? I just hope the civilian authorities are taking air samples and if need be start an evacuation of the civilian population that is under possible threat. Japanese press is reporting the base has storage for petroleum products and ammunition. An American Commander said that the warehouse contains oxide cylinders. Then again like any Okinawa person believe the US military is constantly lying. The Japanese civilian authorities have a need to know exactly what was in that warehouse.

YuriOtaniAug. 24, 2015 - 05:10AM JST
Akula I do not think peace is possible with Russia. Putin taking off his shirt does not impress me! There use to be Japanese populations on the Northern Territories. As for benefiting Russia sure it would benefit them but how will it help Japan? The Americans need to sell us their gas and oil. It will help keep trade going and benefit both parties. I do not think Japan should feed the Russian Bear.
