Yeah, I don’t buy my own stuff either. These people should be held to a higher standard and I feel no pity when there is a lapse of judgement. Saying that, these pilots are highly trained highly intelligent with some over decades of flight experience. You do not get to live that long as a military pilot by making mistakes.
I’m just employing the same weasel tactics that the other person was using for his argument, but now, I’m thinking this person was not using tactics, this person has an incoherent thought process.
I don’t think your correct about where your tax money is going. The budget shows about 5 -6 percent of the GDP in defense spending which is pathetically the same for education. More of the budget is spent in local allocation given to prefectures that cannot raise the tax revenue for their own local administrative social services. .
We’ll know what happened when the radar vector data is released, and the flight data computer is inspected. When you put in all the data in to the computer, you can virtually create the aircraft’s flightpath to include heading, bank angle and elevation.
I don’t agree with you. It’s not that the Americans are holier than thou. It’s just that you would have to look at the crime data and try to get a correlation of crime and military, and pinpoint if there is a large criminal activity with the general population.
The media is doing a decent job in showing only bad sides of the military. Because that’s what sells.
Your argument can turn into a slippery slope. You need to be careful how you use it. You can change the noun from American with oh I don’t know… Immigrant, tourist, foreigner? And still get the same argument.
I learned my lesson.
I don’t know what this person’s agenda is, but it’s not for the sake of the Japanese people of Okinawa, and noticing the awkward erratic style writing I’m guessing this is a very unstable person and would probably suggest avoiding all engagement.
There is a substitute to all this. First off, people should be made aware that it’s the Japanese government that says where the Americans stay and for how long.
The Americans have no say when it comes to policy. They can protest, they can throw money, but ultimately ultimately, it’s the Japanese who make the decisions.
If you really want to reduce the presence of the bases you going to have to vote the LDP out of the supremacy. That would be step one. But, all this too common sense, it’s easier just to antagonize the Americans.

Are you denying that the U.S military forces being in Japan does not create a notable deterrence against unpredictable world actors surrounding Japan wishing to disrupt their way of life?
Are you denying that the American Armed forces being in Japan does not create a competitive advantage that shifts the budget from defense spending to other social welfare services and infrastructure?
Do you deny the young people, whether they want to or not are sacrificing their own lives and freedoms so that the Japanese don’t have to?

Good for these people, there should be more of this type of dissent.
This artist is not a representative of some country. She is agent of an oppressiv e regime. The same regime that assianates, kills, bombs, terrorizes, kidnaps, hacks, and much more with inpunity.
They are not there to share culture, they are there to spread the leader’s ideology.
I hope theres is more of this type of protest and I hope it makes the Moon administration worry.

You can assert whatever you want, doesn’t make true.
No no no... it’s someones else’s turn to ask loaded rhetorical questions.
Since you like to loosely throw heated terms like “occupation”, “land confiscation”.
What is the qualifications and characteristics of an “occupying army”, and “land confiscation”.
When does LoW actually apply?
What qualifies it to be applied?
Who exactly makes the policy in Japan, is it the Americans or the Japanese?
Who gets to decide where the bases stay at, the Americans or the Japanese?
I suspect you already know the answers to these questions. This is your attempt to show spite to another culture.
Make sure you get proper references when you answer back.

This must be funny story of the day. Honestly how do you give away your only leverage with a complete ban when you got psychopaths like NK’s Kim Jung Un and China’s Xi trying to send the world in to war in the name of peace.

I can answer you questions!
But first you need reframe them, you need to make sure they are:
You need to make sure they are not:
You should understand your audience too. Asking questions that are meant for strategic planners really probably shows your lack of judgement.
Further more If you ask more politely rather than demand answers from people who owe you nothing, is probably the best way to get responses.

This is awesome.
1 there are groups monitoring this
2 The Supreme Court actually accomplished something
3 The Supreme Court is not surprisingly useless ( according to the constitution the diet is the supreme of the land, which makes the Supreme Court just a place for beurocrats to retire)

Having the experience of living in Japan, Korea and China, Japan is definitely the better choice in life style, food, people, and entertainment. Though every once in a while you need to get out of the country just to get out of the Japanese bubble.

If I were you I would get your money back on what ever Japanese constitutional studies course you're taking.
You're reaching for straws.
Based on that conclusion of your own peculiar interpretation of terms you’re obviously trying to synthesize some bizarre theories.
That’s why the marines will and always been categorized as naval infantry.

Im sorry the logic of your post is hard to understand. I had to read a couple of times.
So you are saying that because they have a different management hiarchy they are a complete separate set on their own thus have to create a separate bilateral agreement because of this?
With this logic. Is Okinawa separate from Japan? Is Naha separate from Okinawa?

Their pay stubs say department of the navy. Their personnel files say department of the navy. And you are saying they are not part of the navy because of what again?
Maybe their classification as naval infantry should help you out.

Do you know why the marines are there? Because Jgov told them to be there. This impression that, the US military gets to choose what to do without Japanese oversight is absurd. All flight plans are reviewed by a civil air authority a Japanese civil air authority.
The people should be protesting their goverment. They are the only ones who approve where the military gets their bases put at.

arent the marines part of the navy, as in department of the navy, as part of theoffice of the navy you know as far as over 200 years?

Really, I blame both sides the planners who built the school in an active run way and the military for not warning them not to.
Hope fully the new run way gets built quickly so they can shift the risk and operations away.

Glad to hear they are working together to improve bilateral relations. I can suspect that the Americans are fuming at all of this.
I wonder if when Moon asks Kim Jung Un if he is ready for reunification, Kim Jung Un will reply “yeah just leave the keys to the blue house, the central bank, and the strategic control center on your way out.
Because no matter what peaceful gestures anybody believes their ideology is, there is only one true Korea the Democratic People’s Republic....
