The United States announced problems with the construction of a new military base in Japan

Japan is reacting to statements by representatives of the American command regarding the program of transferring the Futenma (Ginovan) military base to Henoko. Both of these areas belong to Okinawa.


Several years ago, the Pentagon announced that they were going to build a new military base in Henoko, where they plan to relocate the Futenma Marine Corps base. At that time, a wave of protests swept across Okinawa, during which local residents said that the new base "would destroy the ecosystem and harm not only nature, but also the Henoko beach infrastructure."

Now in the US they say that there are problems with the construction of a new military base.

Mark Kanzian, senior consultant at the Washington Center for Strategic International Studies, says that "the military base relocation project is unlikely to ever be implemented."

American analyst, retired Marine Corps colonel:

The soil in Henoko is extremely unstable. To strengthen it to accommodate the necessary infrastructure, it will require about 71 thousand piles.

Earlier in the United States, they have already spent several million dollars on surveys to transfer the ILC base, while the terms of the project are constantly shifting. At the moment, in the documents, the designated date for the creation of a new US military base in Okinawa is 2030.

Mark Kanzian:

I highly doubt that the project will be completed by 2030, and indeed ever ...

The fact is that the initial project for the construction of a new base, as it turns out, has risen in price by 2,7 times (since 2014), and now the cost of its implementation is estimated at $ 8,4 billion.

The Japanese press publishes the comment of Fumiaki Nozoe, assistant professor of international politics at the University of Okinawa:

It is necessary to look for and weigh other options for the location of the American base. This will benefit Tokyo and Washington in strengthening the alliance. At the same time, you need to understand that the burden on Okinawa Prefecture from the US military continues to grow. The Japanese government is responsible for this.

Initially, the Americans decided to move the Futenma base, which is interesting, precisely after complaints from the Japanese themselves. Locals complained that they were worried about the “endless clamor of the American military aviationand the increasing risks of accidents due to the location of the base in a densely populated area. "

Now the United States made it clear that they would hardly move the Futenma base, in terms of the fact that it is "both expensive and dangerous for the environment," as the Japanese themselves said. So, residents of the 100-thousandth Japanese city of Ginovan, apparently, will have to listen to the noise of the engines of the US ILC aircraft for a long time.

      Well, they don't want to, the Japanese are at their US bases, but they can't do anything about it. For example, in Okinawa, the Americans behave like occupiers. Lots of crimes, rape, and so on. The main thing is that they get away with everything. What the dependent government of Japan is capable of is only a quiet protest .. crying

          These non-humans are not needed anywhere, neither in Okinawa - nor in the "Northern Territories". For example, according to the Japanese Foreign Ministry, the US military is Okinawa has committed over 4700 crimeswho for the most part went unpunished ...

        they would plow from dawn to dusk, like the right Japanese do in Tokyo

                In Italy, they are called Contratto di lavoro a tempo indeterminato. There are an absolute majority of such in Italy - 14.983.247 for 2019. According to English, it is a permanent contract. Or the open-ended contract.

                You seem to be confusing an employment contract with slavery. Any employee can quit any day, even without giving reasons.

                  So I wrote about Japan ...
                  As you know, in Western countries, a management model has become widespread, in the center of which are the interests of shareholders (shareholderoriented model). Although in Japan, de jure shareholders are considered to be the owners of the company, Here, another system of management (stakeholder model) has developed, which proceeds from the fact that the company also belongs to ordinary employees and management, who together with the shareholders represent the three component parts of the company, the three subjects of its activity.
                  At the same time, it should be emphasized that the life-long employment system has always been selective, that is, it did not cover the entire contingent of employed people. In its most complete form (using all the elements of material and moral incentives for workers), it was used in large private companies (where it covered both white and blue collars) and in government agencies. However, all other enterprises, including small ones, in order to increase the labor motivation of personnel, tried to apply this system to one degree or another, extending its principles to a certain group of workers (for example, only white collars) or using some of it. elements.
                  Lifetime employment system extended almost exclusively to male workers, she helped to consolidate their role as earners of funds, breadwinners of the family, as well. consequently - and strengthening their dominant position in the family and society. Under the influence of the life-long employment system, there has been a significant increase in the prestige of education in society.

    "In short, there are no options. We are here (Okinawa) for a long time."
    And the inhabitants of the Japanese city of Ginovan, let them endure and more often peer at the sky ... If not from mattresses, then from comrades Xi and Kim, something may arrive.
