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.

Posted in: What do you think of taxis in Japan? See in context

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.....

Posted in: Okinawa countersues Japanese government over U.S. base move See in context

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.

Posted in: Gov't overrides protests; resumes work on U.S. base transfer See in context

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.....

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...

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.
