80 years ago we were vicious enemies. Today we are solid allies

You can call this tributary relationship whatever you like

They were forced to assimilate same as in the classic Gengis Khan method.

Good, but people like you would rather see that Okinawans are treated differently and distance themselves from mainland Japan so that the US can have their ways with the island without hindrance.

However i live with Ryukyu natives and they assured me they were treated more kindly by the Americans then they were by the Japanese.

Well, they shouldn't have become Japan's 47th prefecture then.

Hmm... 1945 and 1972, times change. 

Nope, the part where Okinawans are not so fond of the American invaders has not changed.

Hmm... 1945 and 1972, times change. Your comment here really shows your ignorance of what happened in history here.

Here we go, calling people 'ignorant' whenever they make a striking point that you disagree with

You also have a HUGE lack of education and knowledge of the difference between nationality and ethnicity!

No, I'm pretty sure it's people like you who force Okinawans to assume a distinct identity from Japanese on the mainland and marginalize their existence, despite centuries of effort to assimilate with the Yamato people.

i'm curious if the japanese govt has ever apologized to the Okinawans for how they were treated during WWII... if not, they should!

The one person that would have mattered is long dead. Emperor Hirohito. He never came to Okinawa once he became Emperor and never apologized to the Okinawan people for the sacrifices they made in defense of "his" country.

Why should Japan apologize to the JAPANESE for anything related to WWII? For the record, Okinawans opted for Japanese rule once again in 1972 over American occupation.
