Okinawa gov. calls for Futenma move - The Japan News

Okinawa Gov. Hirokazu Nakaima on Friday submitted a petition to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe calling for the transfer of the U.S. Marine Corps’ Futenma Air Station out of the prefecture.

Nakaima visited the prime minister’s office in Tokyo as head of the Council for Promotion of Dezoning and Reutilization of Military Land in Okinawa Prefecture along with other members to hand over the petition.

They also called on the government to work to transfer some of the MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor transport aircraft currently deployed at the base in Ginowan to other bases.

Comment: What is it about elitists (especially elitist politicians) that makes them think that they can succeed in persuading the masses where all others have failed. What part of "HELL NO!" doesn't Mr. Abe and the folks in Tokyo understand??? If he thinks that by spreading a little more (thanks to Abenomics) "worth-less" Yen around he can buy off the locals, he's only half right. The local officials (politico elite wannabe's) can be bought but, the average Mr. & Mrs. Miyagi-San are tired of being lied to day in and day out by lying bastard politico types from Tokyo and Washington. They're another story altogether!
