Los Angeles class, a 688i. Nasty.

Subs don't like attention. You guys in the armed forces will know what I mean.

Like I said again ! ! ! Welcome !!!! These type of ships don't want a welcoming party or the public to view it. I'm glad they are here because they protect Japan while everybody is sleeping in Japan or shopping at the Ginza.

The reason why we need them is because: Chinese Navy & new missile , North Korea, Russia's Medvedev say he's sending weapons to disputed isles.

With a price tag of USD$900 million, I think I would keep an eye on it.

Who told you that? My granddad wisely told me to believe nothing you hear and only half of what you see. Far too much brainwashing in politics these days.

Who really benefits out of war and so cold national security? The share-holders of the militarized industrial complex. They will feed the public (through the government) 100% BS just to keep their pockets laden with profit.

Is this area really necessary? If it is, then which US military can be closed to pay for it. Everyone needs to look at the US citizens concern to reduce military bases in foreign countries.

"Is this area really necessary?"

From Japan's point of view? Evidently yes.

From the US's point of view? Evidently yes.

Some contributors need to follow the Americans' concern about unnecessary military bases. This one MAY or MAY not be necessary, but Americans want the budget cuts. It is time for Japan to stand on its own GNP. Welcome to the real world of finance. The world can no longer feed at the American trough. Accept its responsibilities.

What, no ultra-nationalist protesters? No angry residents complaining about possible nuclear leaks? No fishing boat crews worried about close encounters?

Actually I pity this guy. It is cold and the feeling is colder if you are near water. And thinking of the radiation, his life expectancy will be quite limited.
