Okinawa Governor officially canceled his predecessor's permission to build another American air base


The governor "sent a notice of his decision to the department of the Ministry of Defense of Japan in Okinawa," the report said.

Approximately 20 years ago, the Japanese authorities decided to close the US military base, located in the center of Okinawa, and bring it outside the prefecture. However, later the plans changed, and it was decided to relocate the base to Henoko, where there is already an American base, Kemp-Schwab.

The island’s population opposes. Yes, and the governor himself during his election campaign promised residents not to allow construction in the prefecture of a new military facility.

As the newspaper notes, "Okinawa is only 0,6% of Japanese territory, but 74% of US military facilities and more than half of all US forces in Japan are located there."

All attempts by Tokyo to persuade the current governor were unsuccessful.

According to the prefecture, "there are thousands of US military personnel 25,8 and 19 thousands of their family members and US civilians in Okinawa."

          this is called a simple word - OCCUPATION.
          I will say even more: Okinawa is not an indigenous Japanese land. It only became Japanese in 1879 after the Japanese occupation of the Ryukyu state! So, the spirit of independence has not eroded for a hundred and a few years, there is still gunpowder in the powder flasks! Give the Okinawan People's Republic! Yankees go home !!!

          Japan does not have enough land to live, and mattresses have been given so much. Let it be better for the Japanese to develop the territory. And then everyone looks at the Kuril Islands.

      The special group of the TFR comes to the next governor to arrest him. They burst into the office and begin a search.
      Hack a huge safe - hop, and there is a set of plastic BIC pens.
      The next safe is hacked - there are two old “Flight” watches.
      With the help of bombers, they open an incredible safe, walled into the wall: there are documents for Lada Kalina and a motor boat.
      Everything is in shock, the chairman of the ICR calls, apologizes to the governor, the first channel urgently issues a laudatory story about the governor.
      When everyone is already diverging, the demoted and dismissed head of the investigation team comes up to the governor and asks: “Man, there’s nothing to be done anyway. But the information that you took a lot from us was accurate. What's the matter? Where is everything ? "
      The governor hesitated, looked around and whispers to the former investigator in the ear: "Man, you know, I have the only hobby - I collect platinum safes."

      If in Japanese politics there were all or most of them, such as Takeshi Onaga, then they might have loudly remembered the perpetrators of the atomic bombing, and the Americans were asked to get out. In the meantime, it’s more important to wave fists at Russia over the Kuril Islands.

    According to the prefecture, "25800 US troops and 19000 members of their families and US civilians are in Okinawa."
    I can imagine what environmental and moral damage this contingent does to a small prefecture ...

      The Governor "sent a notice of his decision to the Department of the Ministry of Defense of Japan in Okinawa" I think all this is nonsense. They as soon as some official, something blathers against the bases. For some reason, then they quickly leave. I suspect that Japan’s services will now find a person who gave a bribe or misappropriated state funds.

    But it’s interesting if the GDP offers in exchange for the islands and the conclusion of a peace treaty
    remove all American bases without exception from Japan;
    "bend under a changing world"?

      Don’t give anything to anyone! After that, they will not become more loyal to us! Moreover, these islands are not just for us. No country just gives anything to anyone for nothing, and for the fact that they will clean up the American bases, it does not cost anything to offer, why do we need this? It seems to me that they prevent them from living more than us, they live on their land as in occupation.

        That's right. We need to recall the Second World War. As Japan requested, Germany closed the straits for the Sovtorgflot vessels to enter the Pacific Ocean. We need straits ourselves. Give the South Kuril Islands everything will continue. Let us ask permission to conduct economic activity in our waters. I searched for a decree to close the straits, and stumbled upon an essay on the bioresources of the Sea of ​​Japan. The Japanese are the only ones who violate the Convention on the extraction of whales, the Convention on the use of prohibited gear and methods of fishing and the extraction of sea animals and seafood. They have nothing to do in the Kuril Islands and our inland seas.

    This is the first sign, against American military bases. If the Japanese can drive the Americans out, then they will be kicked out all over the world. The USA is a parasite state on the globe. All the same, the time of their sunset will come.

    If the governor is supported by the local population, and I think that it is, then the Americans will have to wash here too. More often they began to do it, maybe they will become cleaner. I thought so, it’s worth the Amers begin to stumble, their own will begin to peck, what can we say about others. They fed the world with their order and "democracy." If some kind of abscess burst inside the United States, perhaps we would see the beginning of the decline of this empire. I am not a bloodthirsty man, but in this case I would be deeply satisfied.

    Huber, with the support of the population, "banned", but the pindos also officially announced that they would not stop construction.
    In short, the district administration of the occupied country does not have the right to speak on the troops of the invaders.

    "About, 20 years ago Japanese authorities decided to close the US military base, located in the center of Okinawa, and withdraw it outside the prefecture. However later plans changed, and the base, it was decided to relocate to Hanoko, where the American Camp-Schwab base already exists. "...

    I didn’t understand anything, only got confused ... Was this base closed 20 years ago ??? Or did it exist these years, and only now they decided to move the place of its deployment ???

    Why the article ??? What's the point ??? The fact that the new governor canceled the construction of a new air base, and decided to leave the old one in place ???

    They cheated there with the number of Amer military personnel in Okinawa, but after all, the title was about a new base ??? Or what about ???

    I didn’t put a minus in the article, but, in general, there is no essence in this information ...

      veksha50! This is a link to the video. You’ll find a comment there. The salt of the article is as follows: representatives of the State Department and the Pentagon gathered to expand the base in Hanoko and build a new airfield. The governor opposed this. I also did not really understand the airfield. The governor suggests building an airfield on the bulk an island out of trash. Americans are against. During the service, she took out this Okinawa, especially Kaden air base.

    the two most economically powerful states - Japan and Germany, which lost in World War II, are actually occupied until now, and they cannot physically drive out the invaders.
    Almost the only country to expel usa was Kyrgyzstan, though at the cost of 2 color riots
