Was he wearing a uniform? Where is the "do not talk to strangers" and "if somebody approaches you run" concept? Too much conformity.

It is reasonable to be upset about it because it implies that the apologies were just fake.
Did not the Japanese get all upset about some comments made in England and wanted apologies right away?
And why do they keep commemorating Nagasaki and Hiroshima attacks? Did not the US recently cancel the reenactment of those bombings at an air show in the US out of concern not to hurt Japan's feelings? If you want sensitivity, it must be transitive, ie., it should be both ways. Japan traumatized its neighbors, do not blame them for expressing their feelings. They are the victims. If you want to come out clean, dispose of anything associated with it.

what does she think, that money comes out of thin air?
Actually it does for the Federal Reserve Bank. They just print it without anything to back it up.

I quit drinking soft drinks long ago. It simply does not make sense. Plain water, unsweetenned faffeine free tea, coffee are also good.
Beer? Stay away from "Karakuchi". It means more phophoric acid, which depletes the calcium in your bones.

Okinawa is a feasible strategic place for US Bases, as long as it is economically feasible.
If Okinawans really wanted the bases to be removed, they could do it by helping each other if all the base workers, contractors, suppliers, housing agencies, etc, would decide not to work or deal with anything related with the base. The US could not afford to increase troop numbers just to do the day to day businesses. Nor dependents could fill the gap if Okinawans quit their jobs. But, who is going to help them if they quit? That is the problem. It basically amounts to that is the bases are removed. So, why not do it ahead of schedule?
They can pursue independence from Japan. After all, would you be happy with a forced marriage?
Okinawans were at the peak of their happiness while under China's protection, until a greedy country decided to invade it and incorporate it into its empire.
