Maybe you cannot eliminate alcohol on international flights, but a drink cap should be in place. Set the cap at two, and have cabin attendants assigned to the seat be the only one who can serve the person thus he/she could keep track or punch a ticket.

I agree with the fact most of the negative incidents aboard planes come from drunken passengers.

I would like to limit or eliminate private US contractors in Japan. Soldiers can be better controlled with military court martial, and we can use heavy sentences to deter this type of behavior. Ex-soldiers as private contractors are not as accountable for their actions.

Be careful what you wish for. The elimination of US troops in Japan would lead to a military Japan with some of the same dangers inherent as before the war. In a society that does not public debate, I am afraid that until subconscious feelings are brought out and addressed, there is still danger. I worry about the friction between the Asian countries. The US military presence insulates Japan from Korea and China which are both still highly sensitive about World War Two.

However, I would like to see Japan less reliant on foreign powers for their own defense.
