YuriOtani, I never said that I couldn't make it, I was making fun of you and voiceofokinawa and anyone else that is a sheep for the conspiracy theories and how you are stuck inside a fake world. I was also complaining about how some people in Okinawa are so against the US military and yet as soon as they can get on base, they are happy to spend their money on overpriced food and trinkets. I will admit that I prefer mainland Japan over Okinawa any day and to answer your question as to why I am here, its for the money.

Attention attention, I'm here to occupy this space for myself, if you are anti-base, you will be shot... If you are pro-base, you will be shot...if I deem you a threat, you will be shot.... Yet somehow in the real world I am not occupying anything but a 1LDK....I get judged by the color of my skin in Okinawa like I killed someone and my taxes are wasted on open base events that anti-base minded people on this thread attend and spend their hard earned yen.... Please stop drinking the "follow everyone and just repeat others and not do your own research" water. Let's say that Japan tells the US to leave... What is your plans? More shopping malls and hotels? You are just setting yourself up for failure and that's why Okinawa is so distant from the real world.

These two (Voiceofokinawa and YuriOtani)... These two got me laughing like everyone trying to scramble due to Y2K haha... Again it's not a new base. Guam didn't reject. I don't know where you two get your info, but please check other places and do your research... Just remember that Y2K bug didn't do anything.

I didn't miss the point. Please inform me of how you came to the conclusion that the new airfield built on Schwab and Futenma would remain open? The point of building the new airfield on schwab is to close Futenma.

Voiceofokinawa and anyone else,
Please do your research and stop looking at only one side and reading/watching CNN... it's not a new base, it's additions to an existing base. Do you call the new runway at Naha Airport a new airport? No, it's an addition to an existing site. How do you feel about the landfill in Awase? If you got your wish and all US military left, what happens to the housing economy? Everyone can't run Airbnb year round, all new condos being built. What about all the Japanese that work on base, where in the local economy can they work? Last I checked Okinawa had #1 in unemployment. In my opinion, just my opinion, how about focusing on other issues instead of putting all your eggs in one basket. Also, if the "majority" of Japanese are against the US bases, then why do they always go to the open bases?
