Posted in: Campaigning starts for Nago mayoral race; U.S. base issue in focus See in context

The gov. aid should care for economy revival not only during the weeks of campaining. But the Okinawa people are probably aware of that. Once an election starts, the old geezers with the big checkbooks are droping by promissing the blue from the sky. Fact is those money is for Touguchi and his construction firm mafia, but of course you can get your hopes up if your not really following politics usually.

Its gonna be loud in Nago ( shouting Election promises from 9 to 5 ) but if Touguchi wins its gonna be loud 24/7 with roaring Helis and Ospreys in the sky Monday to Sunday, so take your pick.

Posted in: Deputy minister resigns over Okinawa gaffe See in context

It's another gaffe, disrespecting and proof of much he Ldp Gov. Is looking down on Okinawa. Maybe the Ldp should start doing something to solve these decade old problems, but no they prefer to make disrespecting marks about it. Even more embarrassing is the fact that the Jpn Gov don't have any say about national security matters, as the US Army I ignoring to listen to the Gov. And take steps.

Just smoke and screen, so the LDP rightwinger are kept on the line ( see Abe attending the Olympics in Korea )

Next, make a museum how Okinawa is ignored and abused since 1972 and before, its belongs also to The Japanese minister in charge of territorial issues. But I guess we wont see that - as now elections are on the way in Okinawa.

Yup.. many reason - so maybe its time for the USMC find them ? But first shut those heli's down NOW - and stop telling lies they are "safe". Maybe a good time to start showing a bit respect & consideration for the guest country ?

Matt Hartwell. : Good point Im sure there must be Chinese or NK Spy hidding within the USMC, probably dressed up as Henoko Protester daytime and nighttime hampering the AH-1 & Ospreys.

"... such as for gaining cooperation from someone related to important national policies or paying for intelligence provision."

Yup.. its the same luggage full of cash Suga will carry again trying to buy voters for the Henoko soon, or was wasted on 100s police officers that are harrassing the Okinawa people there ( and have a nice state payed stay at the Kanucha Bay Hotel )

but Im not surprised as the cornerstone of LDP politics is the checkbook ( wasting taxpayers money to buy votes ).

Im sorry but its not, Japan' s Gov has to learn that not everything is "solved" by its Checkbook diplomacy. And I mean that by not only wasting taxpayers money, also by really meaning to solve the issue --- with diplomacy, talks and a since appology.

“emergency landing “ or “crash landed” - for people in Okinawa it wont make much difference, its this week's proof that the US army is flying junk over their heads and the Japan Gov. puppets have nothing to say as they as shadow state minions.

A couple of goodold and "warmed up" North Korea news will help him for sure (again), if not play some golf again with the orange-Blondy & the people will applaud again. to taxrising, highest dept ever and a bit extra military spending to make some US based warmongers even more richer.

As long as the US has also Nuklear weapons it wont stop. Without a Face to Face of all 5 leaders ( China aswell) it will never stop.

Give them one tiny room, let them punch each others face - but without a solution no one should leave the room.

Posted in: Abe: Nationalist blueblood at home, shrewd diplomat abroad See in context

Guess the japanese people (and not just the 56% ) earned them some more Abe time, more brainwashing, more propaganda, friends of the LDP can be happy too - cronyism can go back to normal (ab)normal levels. Enjoy it people, or change over to the shoganai- 金魚 (Goldfish) group.

Posted in: Gov't to recommend more flexible 'Premium Friday' after poor results See in context

It just shows how much the Gov. is out of touch with the working people. Ask Mr. Aso or Mr. Abe what about a normal family needs, they probably have no idea.

Besides - the ordinarly slaves...umm... I mean working people in Japan still are been forced to overwork (mostly for free), and cant leave no matter what you call that Friday.

But thank you for pointing out multiple times "Prime Minister Shinzo Abe appealed to voters ..." - the LDP propaganda continues.

See it from the positiveside, the War.inc. USA may use this chance for a few fresh deals :  Embrace for more Ospreys, bought by Japan taxpayers ( + a few % bonus to Nippon Kaigi's pockets) dumped to far away (Okinawa) again... and again...

Posted in: Defense chief seeks understanding of Okinawa over Osprey flights See in context

To funny thing is Defense Minister Onodera is nothing then a minion to the US Defense, reading off, rubber stamping whatever report they will send him or his before minions ... probably since 1945. See also "bring in nuclear weapons ahead of Okinawa reversion" report.

Maybe its time to wake up to the reality that the US is mainly pulling the strings, and your LDP politicans are the puppets ?

Posted in: Japan approves U.S. Marine flights of Ospreys after crash See in context

please share that "understandable explanation" the US army has given to the Defense Ministry. They probably didnt even get anything, just are trying to save face because the Japan Defense is too weak, to low to demand or even protest to the US.

Little doggy sit, the master decided.

Japanese residents, is that who you like it ? Your country mostly already ruled by an foreign goverment ?
