Japan, U.S. agree to reduce burdens on Okinawa | GlobalPost

Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera agreed with the commander of U.S. forces in Okinawa on Tuesday to reduce burdens on Okinawa by conducting some MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft training flights outside the prefecture.

"I would like to ask for your cooperation in reducing burdens on Okinawa," Onodera told Lt. Gen. John Wissler at a meeting in Tokyo which was open to the press, before Japanese and U.S. forces hold a joint exercise using Ospreys in Shiga Prefecture on Wednesday.

Comment: If they're going to perform flight training outside of Okinawa, why do they need to fill in half of Orua Bay to build that Cadillac air base at Camp Schwab? If they're flying training missions up in mainland, build them a base up there. Kinda confusing if you ask me. 

I was going to find an image of an old Asian man or a little kid scratching their heads here as it would be appropriate but, then I thought, if a picture paints a thousand words, this one was far better because it says it all! This is what Fascism in the 21st century looks like. 

Remember Orwell's 1984 and the concept of "newspeak"? That's the one where War was Peace and Love was Hate. My guess is, if you apply that sort of thinking to the concept of reducing the burden on the Okinawan people, then you'll have it just about right! They have no intention of reducing the burden on anyone, instead, they're raising it and saying they didn't... 

Yup, Orwell was right, he just missed it by a few decades...

  1. Not sure I understand how using Okinawa-based V-22s to conduct training with the GSDF reduces the burden either, will have to read/ask more questions about that, but it hardly seems like intolerant, authoritarian (fascist) "maneuvering" to me.

  2. Suggest you watch a couple of videos. Unfortunately they're still lost in the false left v. right Demagogue v. Reprobate paradigm. But they do eventually get to the heart of the matter. The first gets to the heart of the matter at the 5:50 mark when he talks about when Fascism comes to America! It's here in a big way because they've camouflaged it and most people are too busy with life or, forgive me, just plain too stoopid to notice. You may have to copy and paste the urls into a search engine...
