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...
