Posted in: U.S. ambassador: U.S.-Japan pact critical for peace See in context

I am very pro-China and I am also very very pro-Ryukyu Islands and I feel the U.S. Ambassador Roos should seek me out and ask me why. "We" have already contacted the President of China and he assured us the Ryukyu Islands were on his list of friends. Maybe Roos should be reminded that we won WWII and Japan is still playing war games with us. We showed weakness when we allowed Hirohito to skip the gallows and certain of the Japanese are still playing homage to those enshrined at Yasukuni (This nettles the Chinese and the Japanese know it.) Also wake up as to why Futenma ia on the chipping block and why the SDF is being moved en-masse to the Ryukyu Islands.

Posted in: China to impose sanctions on U.S. firms selling arms to Taiwan See in context

The days of Chiang Kai-shek are over (Thank God) and I for one, feel this was a road we should never have trod. We should give our all, to bring Taiwan and China together - remember Formosa (Taiwan) was the first area we returned to the people of Taiwan as per the Cairo Accords of 1943 and also remember that China wa our allie in WWII..... Together we fought Japan and won.

Technology-wise Taiwan is stronger than China, while China has all the muscle and together the could rule all of Asia and then some. I feel the China and Taiwan belong together and this of course will not be popular with Japan, but who cares. I predict this will come to pass and only good can come from this melding of minds.

Posted in: Is Ozawa heading for the slammer? See in context

Ozawa is the Secretary General of the DPJ and Hatoyama is the Prime Minister is the same Party and the two work well together and remember they get their strength from the peace-loving people of Japan - calling the less of what they are shows you attacking this pair from an untoward manner. Frankly, I feel they doing a good job especially when they ignore the sniping. You don't go to jail because you look like a toad!

Am I the only person who has continually brought to the attention of those who cry for reduction of the U.S. Troops on Okinawa that every day Self Defense Troops and their dependents move unto every Base on Okinawa It amounts to about a thousand a week for the past year. I can't say it any plainer "It is time for our military to come home!"

Posted in: Obama advisers say plan would create up to 4.1 million jobs See in context

Obama's campaign was full of promises, as are all elections, but-- in the aftermath, you soon learn his feet are made of clay. Too bad he didn't experience the great depression, he would realize what the politicians have wrought and from which we the people may hopefully escape......... It was a Democrat (Franklin Delano Roosevelt) who brought us out of the Great Depression, so Obama (Also a Democrat) has something to emulate.

I agree with Notginger and I suggest a wait and see attitude. Frankly speaking, I have always been very pro-Ozawa as he truly reflects the thinking of the Japanese people.

I question the words "rebrand itself" - it's more like it "re-invented itself."

Posted in: Woman sentenced to death commits suicide in Sendai jail cell See in context

Note: The Police gave this women sheets for her bed, there-fore the Police contributed to her death. A true "Suicide Watch" takes from the prisoner anything that might be used to seek demise. (Shoe-laces, belts and the prisoner's privacy............)

Posted in: Woman sentenced to death commits suicide in Sendai jail cell See in context

I have a feeling that all our comments would be un-necessary if we knew the contents ofthe suicide note. This poor women was not of a Right mind and should have been under a "suicide watch." (After all, she was on appeal.)

Posted in: Kennedy says 9/11, Obama led her to public service See in context

I am very disturbed with the relationship Kennedy had with Obama and it is a matter with the Constitution of our United States of America. I remember when Onama's grandmother said that Obama was born in Kenya and now that she has passed on we are told that he was born in Hawaii, BUT NO ONE IS SHOWN DOCUMENTS THAT OFFER TO BOLSTER HIS ASSERTION. I feel the FBI should do a mission to either confirm his place of birth or find out whether we the People are again being given half-truths and told to shut up. Why is it the Dupreme Court isn't being offered this "Problem?"

Posted in: Obama arrives in Hawaii for holiday See in context

Sarge: About 500,000 of those he will give employment to will be held in Hawaii to find proof that he is really an American. I know he claims the proof is in vaults in Hawaii but, he refuses to give an okay to those who want to confirm his allegations. The organization We The People have asked their attorneys to contact the Supreme Court and this Court would not cooperate with We The People which makes for a cloudy future for Obama's assertions.

Posted in: What bad manners annoy you the most in public places? See in context

Sarge: Do you realize that Natto is excellent for the arteries of your heart and eating natto will make sure you never get clots in your heart and lungs. It can add many years to your life.

However, what I detest is listening to some loudmouth who uses dirty words in his every uttterance.

Posted in: Japanese army major dies during visit to Iwo Jima tunnel See in context

First - the battle for Iwo Jima was in Febuary and it was decidedly cool. Second - Napalm was used in the tunnels and the Japanese smothered because the Napalm burned the oxygen out of the tunnels. Third - I am sure this "ARMY" major was teaching defence, for that is the mission of the Self Defense Forces (SDF) However, he was not even born when this battle was fought

Posted in: Ringling Bros circus to go on trial for elephant abuse See in context

The Ringling Bros have been in existence for over a 100 years and they are proud of their animals. I feel we are listening to a disgruntled ex-employee and forgetting the Brothers are "experts" on the care and loving of elephants.

My vote goes to the Rinfling Bros.

Posted in: Natto with sukiyaki sauce See in context

Natto by itself is an excellent health food that is a blood thinner that does away with blood clots. I much prefer natto than Warfarin (rat poison) that doctors sometime use as a blood thinner and I use Natto every day for health reasons - incidentally, I like it, especially with brown rice. I will not use sukiyaki sauce by itself, but it is also excellent in a Sukiyaki meal.(sliced meat and lots of vegetables and noodles.)

Posted in: Iraq says U.S. pact needs change See in context

Lets do this the logical way....... Pull out ALL of our troops and let them either sink or swim, but we can't babysit them forever. Oh, there will be great unrest, but we should worry about our own country; bring our military back home and protect our country just like they "should."

The U.S. authorities should open a e-mail address where we can forward all the spam we receive - maybe this will give the "authorities" some idea of just how bad this corrupts our computers. I am sure they know, but it would allow us to strike back, which would make me feel I could express my indignation

Posted in: Bailout becomes buy-in as U.S. gov't moves into banking See in context

I thoroughly disagree with all you nay-sayers. I voted twice for this man who had a "tough row to hoe" and he did his best while the Democrat Party gave him nothing but trouble. If I were to point out the problems, I would point at Pelosi and her munchicans. Bush is now doing something the Congress wouldn't - they would rather talk.

Posted in: Opposition leader Ozawa blasts ruling party See in context

While I generally agree with The Sarge I would remind everyone that over a year ago I became impressed with the rapport between the people of Japan and Ozawa and I predicted that one day Ozawa would bring the DPJ to the forefront. He has worked his way to where he is today and he still has the support of the peace loving Japanese. I predict he will one day be the PM.

Posted in: At 81, Japanese vet makes rare return to Iwo Jima See in context

OssanULTRA: Quoting you; "this is about Iwo Jima, not Okinawa." I have spent the better part of my life, knowing that Okinawa and Iwo Jima were what may be called "Twin Sisters." We fought the better pasrt of WWII as a Naval Carrier war, largely using both naval and army aircraft and thus logicallt Iwo Jima and Okinawa became "fixed" carriers as we were reluctant to make the actual battle to be waged by Marines going ashore against Japan proper - However we had to take both Okinawa and Iwo Jima and frankly this was no easy task. We won both islands after horrendous loosses on both sides, but when the islands were won, they were immediately turned in fixed aircraft carrier and the lossees we caused to Japan numbering into the millions. Iwo Jima had only a few Chritian families living there before the war, but Okinawa have almost a million inhabitants who were largely Chinese oriented and they had been annexed by Japan in 1879 - and this was only 66 years previous to them having been the Kingdon of the Ryukyus. I ask you that are interested to look up the Cairo Accords of 1943. Know that we gave back Iwo Jima shortly after the end of WWII. Japan established a Self Defense Airforce Group and otherwise the island has returned to a lonely brush covered island.

Posted in: At 81, Japanese vet makes rare return to Iwo Jima See in context

)n the 20th day of Septemebr, I was 88years old and I guess there isn't too many of us left that landed first wave on Iwo Jima at 0900 hours on the 19th day of Febuary in 1945. I started on Guadalcanal then Vela LaVella and Bougainville and these were all " a walk in the park" but Iwo Jima was pure Hell and while I did return to Iwo in in 1985, I will always feel when I met my first Okinawan, I fell in love with everyone on the island and I married a Ryukyuan and today I am an old man, but I am stillhappily married to the greatest race of people on this earth. What happend on Iwo may never be told as movies will never capture what really happened. Read the book Iwo Jima by Wetenhall and Marling as they truly captured "the feeling" of what happened on Green Beach....

Okinawa is not Japanese.

Posted in: McCain-Palin becoming Palin-McCain? See in context

Sarge has made over 260 (plus) posts over the past year and I have agreed with everyone of his comments. He must be a Marine. Frankly speaking, I would have prefered to have Ron Paul somewhere in the results of this campaign, but I can live with McCain - Palin - I was a "Spook" in the Vietnam fracas and I felt very close to those who were occupants of the Hanoi Hilton - McCain had guts!

Posted in: East Asian Multilateralism: Prospects for Regional Stability See in context

I have one very astute observation and that is San Ftancisco and the Japanese Treaty of Peace was NEVER properly implimented and one of those who was supposed to "make it go" was a Lt General who have won his stars in Washington D C and was absolutely depending on OJT (On the job Training) We also had a Republican President who Unconstitutionalky sullied a Treaty and a Unconditional Surrender Document; all grounds for impeachment.

Posted in: Pawlenty favored as McCain's running mate See in context

I wrote John McCain and let him know that I was unhappy that he wasn't giving consideration to Ron Paul who is also running for the Presidency.

Our group raised 24 million to back Ron Paul and I would estimate that our group consists of almost a million voters and I know that should McCain ignore our suggestion, we are prepared to vote for Ron Paul, because we believe he understands our government better than all those who has sought the Presidency. Either McCain selects Ron Paul or my vote goes to Ron Paul for President
