Surely the overpaid Diet fat cats could have easily donate air conditioners, but that's only wishful and deep dreaming. However in reality, while the elderly and common taxpayers get taken their greedy pockets get fatter and this is an end result.

Yes, more money for my pockets...I love it..but on the flip side, NK has not shown backing down to anyone including Trump and as long as it has missiles capable of hitting Japan it is a big threat. They proved it can hit Japan whenever it wants. If that happened, do people really think that the US would shoot their missiles down or attack them. The answer lies in the truth NO at least not right away and NK can always claim that it was a mistake and apologize under the Russian and Chinese blouse. Japan needs to defend itself period and not wait for the US in reality for an attack strike that would never occur. Augh history has proven that time and time again while the innocents are slaughtered.

I can't stop laughing at the heading of this article. The ship has long sailed especially how most including the media forgot that Japan raised the rad exposure limits much higher so that it would almost be impossible to file claims...Literally the only way anyone could actually file a claim is if they are directly in the line of the exposure to high level rad..

to understand the entire plot one must go back in history. The old empire of yesterday has awoken, it is very much reaching out and grasping its fingers on whatever land it can grab., it is by no means a secret where this is heading. Behind the scenes the ever strategic Chinese and the Moon sympathizer selling out Korea which comes into play is Japan. China and Japan are already making plays for the future while the US under the noise making of US President Trump goes no where, as they adage goes a barking dog with no teeth means just that a loud bark. The US will pull out of Asia and the writing is on the wall. Japan reads it and is moving themselves to align. However the day will come when the appetite of the Chinese will become too great and hence finally the Great War. A war that could have been prevented years ago had the Obama admin not thrown out so much gas and the Clinton admin not weakened to their Berkeley ideology of giving the voice to China in the WTO and with it more than half of the US trade business.

Everyone forgets that Onaga made the bulk of his wealth due to the bases, but too clear his conscious went the other way at the end. He knew his time was limited but it was by no means for the people but for his own guilt. Seriously these idot's don't 'know how to count, there aren't that many bases left with the numbers like in the past, most has been turned back to the landowners or some faction within the GOJ. This is about business by the greedy landowners pure and simple. The rest are just peasants and ignorant fools. If Japan really wanted to make a difference in Okinawa, then show the world that this country has a pair, and put the Marines on the Senkakus, that way they will first to fight. If China can build bases out of rock tips why can't Japan...

Japan had a better chance to overtake and conquer all China, make it New Japan than what happened historically. Instead they fell pansy to the Germans to test the US resilience.

re: Kwatt: If that is the case I know of many Ryukyu folks actual bona-fide blue blood, who want the bases. By the way they refer to themselves a Ryukyu not Okinawans.
Question is how did Onaga make his money? Yes the bases, but only few know this.

using air conditioning would help. I've gone to many businesses only to have limited AC on and it was hot. The reason too much cost to run the AC.

With the Japan under the big umbrella of the US it should just press protect itself because frankly there is not much China, the Koreas or any other nation can do to retaliate against Japan...Any attack towards Japan rightly brings in the US as its protector...time to prove it..

laughing and rolling on the ground with this storyline...and check out the this comment: The coast guard expects the new ships will also enhance its ability to respond to North Korean boats engaged in illegal fishing, and to unidentified ships sighted off the central Japan coast, the sources said." The only unidentified ships sighted have ALL been Chinese but clearly labeled and boldly flying their flag..yet as on previous blogger put it, what are the Japanese going to do with these massive over expensive ships except throw water and blast their loudspeakers and horns....what a joke...Japan is weak and China knows this. It takes a bold leader to actually take real action against incursions into Japan waters and that is what China and other countries understand...look at Trump he is now looking a lot like Obama , hot hot blasting air with no punch...

Anything to raise prices and make profits, except the consumer. Always an excuse by the greedy farmers. If farming was such a nonprofit industry then no one would be a farmer.

Finally a citizen steps up to complain for action and instead gets the traditional brush off. let the guy go and train him to file an official complaint in writing provide he has the proof of any violations..oh that's right there are none, cancer by tobacco is highly legal and encouraged.

Dango bong, its money collected as land owners and nothing else to do with it. Also that statement about bulk of US facilities is farce and outdated. It is no longer the case as other pre use land was returned back to their government.

Well at least China is admitting it produces cheap low quality products just a stride from junk. It is not the US building islands in the middle of water on a rock, so who is the paranoid one? hmmm seems it is China as all its neighbors just want to do business, not get in territorial disputes.

Their is no dispute that trading has been extremely lopsided, un-fair and a major non-advantage towards the US, however that is only half of the problem because it is consumers greed and hunger for cheaper products that is the driver and left alone. Consumers in the US need to do their part and buy US made products and less of the imported junk..

However the fact still remains, Japan is competing for the same service pool with other countries facing the same labor shortages.
