Where is the outrage when Governor Hirokasu Nakaima approved the land reclamation at the Hidaka Flats in Okinawa City? What about the land reclamation in Sunabe? And the lad reclamation in Ginowan city to replace the Naha port? And the land reclamation to build a coastal road from Naha to Ginowan City?

I used to go to Iwo almost every week to bring supplies to the Coast Guard personnel assigned to the Loran station. They gave us a tour of the caves and took us to the top of Mt. Suribachi. There were some goats roaming around the cliffs. They used to joke that mysteriously the female goats started dying.
One of the guard persons presented me with a Coca Cola bottle from the caves and it had 1945 in it. Must have been that as soon as the Marines took over, they brought their favorite drinks.
The Coat Guard personnel had a dog mascot by their HQs building. While waiting around to get back, I sat down on a lawn chair to study my aviation books. Suddenly I had this warm feeling in my leg. Guess what,
the *&$@#%% dog took the liberty of pissing on my leg. I was really pissed!
There is humongous volcanic hole on the way to Mt Suribachi. They told us that it was where they dumped excess military gear including tanks, trucks. There are a lot of sulphur vents all over. Not much of any tropical fruits, although they could have introduced all kinds of varieties. Being farther away from the continental landmass, it stays warmer than Okinawa during the winter.

Fedamor, apparently you might still believe that our "elected" officials are in power for the good of citizens and mankind. You should know by now that it is far from the truth. And would not be surprised if you believe in the "official" 9/11 story. If this is the case, it came from a two star general stating that what hit the Pentagon was not an airplane. This and the two in the towers were photoshopped, by guess who. The same that controls the news and the government. If they killed more than 3k people during 9/11, 200 plus passenger is nothing. Did not all the traffic controllers remained silent during 9/11? Have you heard about skull and bones, and other secret societies? And have you watched the money masters in You-Tube? I highly recommend you watching it. It is an eye opener. And there is nothing lunatic about it. I used to be a "lunatic" who believed in everything that was reported in the news until I figured it all out.

Just google "Flight Termination System" and AWACS along with MH370 and you will have some reports different from what the newspapers and TV stations report.

According to reports from non-main stream media, the plane was diverted by an AWACS that was orbiting Malaysian airspace by way of the technology known as "Flight Termination System". Villagers in the Maldives affirmed that they saw the plane flying southbound on a very low level as to avoid radar detection, but were later forced to retract their statement. You can find different theories in You-Tube. Some say it is in Diego Garcia.

No thanks, I can be healthy and happy without its intoxicating effects. When I had an accident and they gave me painkillers, all it took was one pill and I hated the effects of being drowsy and not being able to have a normal sleep or rest. I prefer the pain to experience the drug effects. I am already graduated from these beliefs.

If they could at least take care of an overlooked thing in their smart phones: they do not have the accessory hanging capability like Japanese cell phones do.

I know one thing about Japanese merchants, they are very inflexible and want to get rich quickly. But I have seen how Koreans and Chinese settle for less than the original price tag because they sell by volume.
