    The government can decide when a criminal lives or dies.

    Government? Just whom is the "government?" The elected officials? The people who work in your town office?

    The "people" here have never been given a choice in the matter and it has always been the politicians who wrote and implemented the law here, so, give the people a chance.

    A national referendum!

    The appeal and plane crash have nothing to do with one another. Yellow journalism.

    By the way BertieWooster where to have a military base is a military decision, not a "peace loving" decision.

    Dont worry, these articles about incidents in Okinawa typically end up with the same "beat a dead horse" posters making the exact same comments over and over and over and over again. They are pretty much off their rockers with some of the comments they make and are far from reality.

    A few are like the politicians here,,lemmings!

    Yahoo is for whatever odd reason still popular among many Japanese. Yahoo has had numerous breaches over the years, including one where an employee SOLD customer data to Yakuza.

    Screw Yahoo...let them die out.

    Now that the U.S is back in business with them, Japan is too!

    What is the problem these days with reading comprehension? Reading the articles BEFORE commenting helps to keep egg off of one's face.

    Shouldn't be any surprise here! Japan always 2 steps behind the US.

    Here too....read the following, from the article.

    Japan has a long history of trade with Cuba, importing seafood, tobacco and coffee while exporting machinery.

    All this shows that the Japan-U.S. Security Treaty is a mere facade to hide the undeniable fact that Okinawa is none other than a U.S. military colony.

    If I live in a US military colony why is my passport Japanese? Oh, you are just stirring the pot of ignorance,sorry.

    This news brought to my mind a similar but tragic incident in 1959 on Okinawa

    Wow, you have to be in your 70's or older, yet I don't see how that matters to the crash yesterday. At least this pilot dumped his plane in an area that it would affect no human lives.

    You don't understand,the fact that a plane went down and was connected to the military is enough to for certain people to protest and use this as a reason to further their cause.its basically fuel to the fire.

    I hope that you understand that some people, even posters here, will protest even if paint gets chipped off a bolt or a truck makes an inadvertent u-turn at the entrance of a school.

    Oh the media plays a huge part in the game too.

    Thankfully the pilot is alright, just get prepared to put in your ear plugs as ALL the city and town assemblies will have a protest vote and the media will cover it all ad naseum, along with the "special" assembly meetings and other wastes of tax payers money.

    Interesting that the Harrier took off from Kadena, to those that know what I am referring to here, it makes the "joint-use" with the MC issue problems look like BS.

    Sorry you are totally wrong. A child care facility has to have a certain percentage of qualified grade 1 and grade 2 child care givers in ratio to the number of unqualified child care givers they employ.

    You don't get it, And you have blinders on to think otherwise. The government does not see child care providers as "skilled" workers, whether they are licensed or not.

    Same as health care workers in other fields, child care workers are NOT considered skilled positions no matter what you like to think, you are dead wrong.

    Also those qualified child care givers have to renew their certification every 10 years

    So? Still does not make them skilled workers. I have to renew my drivers license every 5 years, so does that make me a "skilled driver" ROFLMAO if you think these "certifications" make a person a "skilled" employee.

    ANd to the rest, it's just BGM. Remember though, just because there are certifications and licenses involved they do not meet the criteria the government requires for skilled positions. AND do not forget that the government already has a system set up (cluster fruck) for nurses and health care workers from the PI to get "licensed", they surly are not skilled, but it seems to me that anyone with a Japanese certification is SKILLED to you.

    If that's the case I have about 15 different doctorates....for SKILLED certification.

    That resource is very quickly drying up. You and the Japanese have to face facts, Japan is no longer an attractive place for skilled non-Japanese to work.

    Sorry but you are wrong here, there is a HUGE resource of SE Asian folks that would love to come to Japan and work. Day care providers if you didnt know, do not fall in the category of highly skilled labor. And if you think Japan isnt a choice location, come visit downtown Naha and see who is working at the Conbini, washing cars at the rental car places, etc etc etc, one would think they were in Nepal, or Viet Nam, or Bangladesh, or China,

    What are YOUR proposals for dealing with NK?

    The UN Security council issue a unanimous ultimatum to Kim, open up the country to UN inspectors, free access, to all sites, shut down the weapons testing and manufacturing, plus everything covered in the sanctions, give him one week to respond, if he doesnt agree....

    Doesn't matter take your pick, Mossad, Spetsnaz , Delta,...take his ass out. Try him in abstention for having the worst hair cut on record, sentence him and carry it out in a timely manner, drones might work too. Just dont announce it publicly, he'd go into hiding.

    Do what it takes, get rid of him! and continue to get rid of NK leaders that keep on with the same policies. THAT'll get the message across.

    THe people of NK deserve at least that much.

    @Yubaru - Sorry, I was being sarcastic!

    My apologizes, hard to read sarcasm here sometimes without having the handy rolling eyes emoticons. This forum is so....90's!

    Here's a beach in Aichi. I took this a couple years ago. s18.postimg.org/bg1pxtrfd/image.jpg Beautiful. Clean. Empty.

    Better off posting a link to a web picture than a personal linked one, don't take it personally but it's net security 101 to not open unidentifiable unsecured links to sites to people no one knows. Thanks for trying though.

    Toss in what I generally describe the countryside as shabby at best, it can be somewhat difficult to find nice places free of trash.

    Quite so, here too on roads that cut through farmers fields, old TV's, refrigerators, tires, you name it, as it costs quite a bit of money to dispose of them properly, folks just toss them where ever.

    Why didn't Abe offer a few ideas of his own during his speech? What an opportunity to do so.

    If you need to ask this question you should learn more about Mr Abe. He can't, because he doesn't have any original ideas, even his urges are outdated and dont work. I am surprised he's lasted as long as he has.

    At these preset times, sometimes as early as 7 a.m. so people can participate before they have to go to work, neighbors don gloves, carry shovels, scythes, rakes and clippers and collectively clear the street drains, cut back the trees, weeds and grass and generally tidy up the surrounding area, including small parks and public toilets.

    Another Tokyocentric article being panned off as ALL of Japan. When are these authors going to learn that depending upon where one lives not EVERYTHING is the same as Tokyo.

    Yeah we have cleanups, but don't dare to touch the trees, or grass, or weeds, on the roads, many cities and towns contract that work out down here and they WILL and DO get royally pissed off if someone or some group, takes it upon their selves to trim the trees or cut the weeds.

    If you want to do it, you have to get the ok of the local authorities and then you are liable for taking care of it for damn near ever.Typhoon comes, tree falls down, YOU are responsible. grass not cut, weeds over grown, YOU will be responsible. It isnt worth the effort.

    I doubt the author sees the irony in what they wrote. IF Japanese were so damn clean, why the need to clean up in the first place?

    With central government deciding how much to pay instead of free markets, of course there is a problem.

    The central government is not the one's who decide the pay, for the public centers it's the local city office, private one's, the owners.

    And these people really are paid in amounts like 170,000. Absolutely pathetic.

    Sown here in Okinawa if the day care provider received 170,000 per month folks would be beating down the doors fighting to get hired.

    The gap between public facilities and private facilities is HUGE, and I personally know some women who make less than 100,000 per month working full friggin time.

    Sorry but there are a whole hell of a lot of stereotypes being replayed here, and while for some, maybe many, this is their view of things here, I could just as easily talk about just how dirty too many places here are.

    Sounds like the author was having an orgasm of delight writing this article.

    What purpose do these meetings actually serve other than be used as a soapbox for "leaders" to cry from?

    Earlier this year, Uematsu was committed to a mental hospital for about 10 days after he was diagnosed with marijuana-induced psychosis.

    This sounds highly improbable and is just sounds like an excuse for locking him up. Very few, thank God, Japanese facilities have experience with treating drug patients and in their rush to find a reason to lock this dude up they came upon this to explain away his "insanity".

    It also sounds to me that it would not have mattered how long they locked him up, once he got out, he would have done this anyway.

    If this article can be taken at face value, this is one sicko who was planning this rampage for quite a while. Some may argue that one would have to be insane to kill that many people, but it sounds to me that this dude knew exactly what he was doing, and should stand trial as is, and hopefully a not too short time later, start swinging.

    But he won't as Doctors and other specialists will want to "study" this guy for a generation or two.
