IF this turns out to be true I want this seaman to publicly apologize to every law abiding American on Okinawa who are trying daily to represent the USA in a positive image.

Bam_boo looks like you've convinced yourself to represent Okinawa. I'm glad your not an elected official. If Onaga and his cronies have their way we'll be ruled by China. Then we'll see what you have to say. Good luck.

The Okinawa people are not to blame. The Okinawa government caused the delay. Period.

Every single one of them are getting paid to be there too.

The taxi drivers on Okinawa have to be the worst. Very disrespectful ex: cutting across lanes of traffic, weaving in and out just for a fare, stopping anywhere, parking at bus stops, etc. to many negative stories to write. Most of the drivers are well over 65 years old.....

How people that don't even live on Okinawa voice their opinions for and against military bases. They will be reduced the bases and the okinawan people and American community know it, but without the efforts of off islanders who don't even understand or live here. So go back to your own communities and clean up your own before you comment about ours.

each demonstrator is paid a stipend from a private organization backed by OPG. It pays for air and ground transportation, food and room and a little spending money. So a majority of these people are there for the money not the sincerity and sacrifice of their cause.

Go for it. I respect peoples right to fair and unbiased protest against the base, but under representation by the other side supporting the base jobs and economic support it provides has been an unfair tactic of the OPG. This generation of US and Japanese government personnel understand the need to reduce through relocation of personnel and equipment and it starts with Henoko. Good luck in building a new Okinawa.

YuriOtani san, I'm very sorry abut the treatment you received years ago. But don't blame this group for their stupidity. They are trying to move. Okinawa receives a great deal of money to offset the cost of hosting the bases. Not everyone is getting this money, because it's being spent in Naha not North.

Hello Mr. James Keaton, who did you interview to come up with such a ridiculous statement in your article?
"Anti-military sentiment is high on Okinawa" did you only survey demonstrators being paid to protest? Better get your facts straight. Your getting as bad as the tabloids.....

The US cannot even properly handle it's military veterans, 11 million ILLEGAL immigrants, Black Lives, Matter, etc. so now we take in refugees? This has Obama's stupidity written all over it......
5 ( +15 / -10 )
NO, not even in the US...this is getting ridiculous. Take care of the 11 million ILLEGAL ones before accepting anymore people.. When does common sense start????

Elaine Lies, one sided article like usual. Sympathy by how many Japanese people maybe a 100 to 200? The election has never been viewed as a true representation of Okinawan's viewpoints. He uses my tax money to go take trips to places as a governor he has now place going in his position. He's misrepresenting Japan. He's arrogant.

How is it that a governor has the authority to address the UN? These politicians are wasting my Japanese taxes on these trips. To lead you must be able to follow. Kyodo, quit inflating this current "regime" here on Okinawa...

China get over it. Learn from it and move on. Quit punishing this generation for past faults. Cheap shot.

Does anyone have any historical Chinese aggression against other countries that the Chinese have never apologized for that can be pressed against them too?

Whats going on with this news? Did the Ryukyu Shimpo and Okinawa times and Governor use their influence to kill this story?

Okay Black Lives Matters make this one spin.....

Conspiracy theory. Three to fours years ago a Japanese person was caught firing a rocket from outside the gate to sabotage one of the buildings. It would not surprise anyone that someone up there tried this again.

I dreaded to hear this news. This will only strengthen Onagas position on the termination of the construction.

All Lives Manner. These protesters are just flaming racism for their own gain. Using a thug and criminal to do it.

Posted in: Human rights groups around the world are urging the International Olympic Committee to rescind its decision to hold the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing and that countries boycott the Games over China's human rights violations of more than a million Uyghur Muslims. Do you support such a call?
