"The police withheld their names as they were not arrested." Why were they not arrested? It's murder an arrest-able crime in Japan?

Not going to make a difference. If Futenma is to close then it must move to Camp Schwab and it is not a new base. Going to be another 20 years before it moves.

They would not get tailgated if they were driving in the left lane, do not use the right lane for driving. I see this all the time, simple rule "drive left, pass on the right".

What new base? It is a base extension at Camp Schwab, not a new base as the base is already there. You do not call Naha airport the new airport because the are adding a runway.

You know in the 1920's they introduced residential air conditioning. I know they sale them down here on Okinawa. With solar power on my house it is also free as long as the sun is out.

"If you reduce the set temperature by 1 degree the rule of thumb will be that consumption will fall by 10%, so a circulator will enable a reduction by 30 watts.” How is this going to save you money? Reduce the temperature from 25 to 24 is going to cost more. Now it you raised the temperature from 25 to 26 this will save you money.

It should read “The Japanese government on Saturday resumed work on a controversial expansion of the U.S. military base in northern Okinawa following a month-long suspension, officials said, even as talks with local officials opposed to the project remained deadlocked.” New: not old : recently born, built, or created; not used by anyone else previously; recently bought, rented, etc. Expand: to increase in extent, size, volume, scope, etc.; to spread or stretch out; unfold, to express in fuller form or greater detail Because Camp Schwab already exist it is not a new base, but expanding the current base and adding new runways.

"controversial new U.S. military base in southern Okinawa" What new base down south, they are closing all bases past Camp Foster. They are making Camp Schwab bigger for the move of MCCS Futenma. Is it the new port in Urasoe?

@ PeaceWarrior the article says its was a minivan, a Toyota Cami is a crossover. They should fix the article. Yes, lots of lack of CS here, even more down here on Okinawa. Kids with car seats or seat belts, etc.
