Well, not to his face...The secretary to the undersecretary to the undersecretary will ask him if he is done with his tea and show him the door. I doubt he will meet with anyone who has any real input into anything.

This article makes me laugh. Denny is as "bicultural" as a McDonalds Big Mac. He knows nothing of American culture and doesn't even speak the language. As a true bi-cultural native (born in Okinawa and raised in Okinawa & America), I know that he will be more of a laughing stock with his naive attitude of making a difference in the minds of US politicians. There is simply no political gain for them. He has no power to influence the GOJ in any of their decision making. This would be like the Governor of California coming to Japan and telling Abe he needs to ease up on Marijuana.

BertieWoosterToday 08:09 am JST Okinawa seems to be the only part of Japan that breeds real politicians.

Bertie ol boy, Okinawa politicians know nothing except the anti-base issue. They sit by as China "invests" all over the island and floods this beautiful island with noisy, rude tourist who trample everything like a herd of cattle. While it is true that the bases are no longer the main source of income for the island directly, Okinawa receives millions of dollars in economic development incentives for hosting the bases.
