Yubaru, these Japanese aircraft are taking off to defend Japan.

Camp Schwab is being vastly expanded adding a new airport and port. I can just hear the sound of F-18's taking off under full afterburner over these remote villages. Day and night it is going to be loud enough to break windows! The Americans will not care the suffering they cause. "It is the price of freedom", well the Americans are forced on Okinawa so where is the freedom?

I am a humble servant of the people, I can not afford such a trip! So I could just take the regular train instead eating a bento.

Say what you will but I think it is better to grow old in your own country. Other countries could have political unrest and what was saved could be taken by another government prior to deportation. I plan on getting old in Okinawa with my family. Perhaps what is most important is not the country but not to be alone. Does not matter if it is Thailand, Japan or the USA it is important to have a social support network and not be alone.

Trump does not keep his word so why should he support Vice President Pence's word?

A person could be incapacitated by an accident or life event. It could take a long time for a person to die in distress. It is better to be in your home country and with other people. Picture yourself unable to move slowly perishing of thirst and hunger. When if there are others around, they might be restored to useful life.

Yet for America to hit China or North Korea with nuclear weapons would mean death in Japan. The prevailing winds will bring the nuclear fallout to South Korea and then Japan. Their "protection" will kill millions of Japanese and make large parts of Japan off limits for generations.

So what did Trump really say to PM Abe? I bet he read him the riot act. No Donald the Japanese people will not buy more American cars. Again they are too large and the steering wheel is on the wrong side of the car. As for trucks a Ford 150 is too large to go down the street where I live. It would get stuck between the buildings. As for paying more for the Americans, why? Japan can get along with China, Korea and Russia if they try hard enough.

Where would the perpetrator get a gun in Japan? Think it would be very expensive on the black market!

I agree with you to a point Yabaru but these inovations come at such a high cost. As for military people, you are right. It is the poiticians that get us into wars.
YuriOtaniFeb. 10, 2017 - 03:06PM JST
I agree with you on this Mister Smith and Mister Yubaru. Though I think their gentiles should be removed by surgery. Then sent to prison for a long time and perhaps relocated to the Senkaku islands. The Chinese would not want to be around them. I do think these perverts would be used as spare body parts in China. To me these perverts have forfeit their right to live with the general public.

One thing is confusing me, Trump has had his day in court. Why would he tell a judge, "I will see you in court?" The 9th appeals court is a court. Second if it goes to the Supreme court, I do not thing the judges from the 9th court will be there. My guy says if it goes to the Supreme Court the best Trump will get is a tie. Still why did Trump say "I will see you in court?" Will Trump present evidence to the Supreme Court?

aki009, I do not believe it is possible to remove the fuel with today's technology. Perhaps it would be possible to insert graphic rods/pellets to affect the level of radiation. What is known is our people and technology do not stand up to such high levels of radiation. Perhaps one day it will be possible to remove the fuel but first it is essential to contain the fuel to the containment facility. If this nuclear material would escape, it would be a nuclear disaster of the worse magnitude. Our machines last less than 2 minutes and people would have a lethal dose in about a minute.

Trump thinks he is the "fuhrer" or leader of the USA. No he is the President and has to work within the US Constitution first, then US laws and lastly codified laws as regulations. Trump is a man child with small hands which indicates insecurity. He was spoiled as a child and bullied his way to his fortune. Sorry Trump that will not work as President. I received a second University Degree while in the US on leave of absence. I found it very informing about the US system of checks and balances. I was worried about Trump being elected but now think the US will be alright. I give him a few more months before his resigns or Article 25 of the US Constitution is imposed.

The effects of the radiation levels inside the containment chamber is DEATH. Nothing will survive that amount of radiation and I mean nothing! Perhaps the best possible solution is to seal them in place. Build an containment structure around the three plants. I do not believe it is possible to remove this fuel. Then use it as a poster child for things going wrong and doing things on the cheap. Again some things are impossible at this time.
