    RE: Onaga is one of the very, very few Japanese who can say "No!" Well, I say, Japanese, but he's not really, is he? He's Okinawan and he's fulfilling his job description and representing his people. That makes him a rarity too. Good luck to him!

    Your correct as least half way, while Onaga is Okinawa, he does not represent the original Okinawan blood line descendants but rather the Japanese mainland agitator and business interests groups. The original Ryukyu native islanders are supportive of the bases. It was Onaga and his private interests that are misrepresenting his own kind.

    Serves them right to be punished for getting in bed with China in the first place. Recall China started the entire Pacific incursion by building man made islands under the guise of peaceful research yet they have instead militarized and hence forced its neighbors like SK to take its own measures to defend itself. China should learn to keep business as business and not mix politics with business.

    I for one am sick and tired of the mass hysterics reported by media and paranoia that many speculate would happen. In a real world scenario, it won' even come close. A massive preemptive strike would end any misconceptions painted. The end result would be rebuilding the rubble and feeding the masses. China would be upset, but nothing they could do as even today there is nothing they can do to stop such an attack. Russia by this time would have cut a deal with the US and would only rant as a show. I support a full scale preemptive strike.

    The Imperial family has rights just like anyone else, therefore they should be able to call it quits and abandon this overtaxed outdated system that does nothing for anyone except put tax money in this system. Let them be like everyone else it is 2017 afterall, end the entire system. This is not pre 14 century.

    All I can add is talk is cheap and China is full of cheapness. In WWII Japan still had a very powerful Navy, and has ever since. One does China think that 1 carrier will win a war for them? Please...

    Shame for coming down on a plant operator while the real white collar criminals roam free and pay nothing. Shame on Kan who was the PM by not allowing the US ships to assist and were readily available. Shame on the government who was coerced into raising rad limits so that it could be presented at a higher detection level rad and hence no foul play for upper executives who should be in jail.

    While the trade deals are in the making would be a great and big bonus time for Japan to join the rest of the cell phone market and get rid of the bogus, 2 yr. contract system period.

    If that is the best they have, the need to make massive improvements. NK if overlooking the significance of its ranting and raving towards Japan. That the US has bases in Japan is irrelevant, and overlooking a much more dangerous foe. Just because a tiger is sleeping inside a cage does not mean that its claws are not sharp.

    If these players don't like it, they can leave for other teams. It is disrespectful and tasteless. Leave the US if you cannot at least stand. If they are Americans' then submit your passport and surrender your citizenship just don't let the door hit you on the way out..unless it helps them out the door further...

    RE: He's desperate to stay in power, as any dictator is, until his goal of changing the Constitution and turning Japan back towards the path of war is complete

    As long as the country keeps the Imperial seat, it will not change. Since you used the term dictator vs. new imperial leader, hmmm.. but must agree that his quest for changing the Constitution as he sees fit is much more than just changing the Constitution but stripping the Japanese citizens from any rights they have but do not use because it is not taught to them that only few know what rights they have today. Those in Japan under age 45 have what few successes they have as they see fit because of the older generation, but once that is gone so to will any of those gains and only the socialite and ruling parties will benefit as easily scene today..just take a look at everyday TV talent or politico's, same people year after year...

    re: For the amount of dirt the pour internally, and, as brothers-in-arms, externally, China stands correct on that one. There will not be any friendship if both countries keep producing "counter measures" one after the other. Which is a com mon sense but idiots rule, well...

    Common sense is to those who know what it is and it doesn't take science to prove the intent of one country building up forces when there is no threat from its neighbors and yet continue to grab rocks in order to pile dirt but do not seem to ease, then arm these areas but yet China\s neighbors are all saying threat from whom? Seems like China has been the aggressor from even way back. China does not stand correct but please prove your point.

    For the last 3 years, every time I have voiced a noise complaint it was not the foreigners doing the noise, but local Japanese or those visiting the area but still Japanese. The foreigners have always been courteous and quiet.

    I concur with most of the post in their guilt assessment, intent and carrying out of proper sentence, hang him. Not to speak for the American's but the majority of the Americans if provided the case in the US would either sent this animal to meet death either in prison by his own peers, electric chair, gas or lethal injection. However with all this said, there really wasn't any need for the media to post: "home to the bulk of U.S. military facilities in Japan.

    Following the incident, Tokyo and Washington signed a pact to remove some U.S. military base workers, classified as the “civil component,” from special legal protections granted to base personnel under the bilateral status of forces agreement" No basis for this to be added to the story. Where is the moderator now who checks what gets printed. Seems that by adding this only entices hate against those doing good in Japan, from the bases. Being fair and partial is always the best journalism. The article did not need bias...

    If the US is seeking bilateral agreements, and fair for both, then allow the Japanese military to train on a US base. We are allies afterall. The US trains in Japan with numerous bases, why not say let Japanese troops be based in say California, and train. This way if war and the Pacificist Constitution is changed, then Japan can immediately help its US inside their own territory. It is time for both countries to really work together and trust one another. Japan has proven to the US it can be trusted and counted on to help as long as the people in Japan are allowed too show them it can be done.

    re: I also want to hear what she wants to tell me.”

    Not to sound insensitive, but more than likely she would have said, " move on, get a new partner, live your life and enjoy"

    That is the best one can do but harder said than sounds....

    I guess the best way to describe the gripes being posted are not being said other than a means to get to a hospital. Unlike other countries where medical care is actually practiced in Japan the best you can get is an ice pack, as it is nothing more than a taxi with a red light and cheaper. If taxis could have red lights to transport people to the hospital they too would be used as such. The best solution is too allow ambulance personnel to be able to treat minor and life threating situations while in touch with a medical doctor. I can get me own ice pack.
