Hehe, true. At least dumb enough to watch too much TV (and take it seriously).

Well, guess when wars are waged, and propaganda campaigns are conducted, cases like this or the one in Germany (Murder of Marwa El-Sherbini) are inevitable.

FOCUS: Anti-base Okinawans expect Hatoyama to end carrot and stick policy

Quote:
''We now face an epoch-making chance to transform Japan's subservient relationship with the United States into more equal one,'' Tamaki said. ''Many Okinawans object to the current plan to relocate (the Futemma base) within the prefecture and they are frustrated because their hopes for change raised in the election could be betrayed.''
Quote:
Tamaki, a son of a member of the U.S. military, said there is no need for Hatoyama to rush to a conclusion on where to move the Futemma facility and urged him to be ''a tough negotiator.''
Quote:
''What we want is to turn everything back to zero and to restart negotiations from scratch. Political compromises can spawn great ideas,'' he said. As alternative relocation sites, the parliamentarian suggested utilizing regional airports in sparsely populated areas of the country, where demand for air services is low.
Quote:
The activist said the DPJ can give serious thought to the idea because Secretary General Ichiro Ozawa has expressed the view that the role of the U.S. military in Japan should be trimmed down, saying the U.S. Navy's 7th Fleet based in Yokosuka would be ''enough for the U.S. presence in the Far East.''
Quote:
Takuma Higashionna, 48, a Nago city assembly member who has sued the U.S. Defense Department over the Futemma relocation plan as it could harm dugong, an endangered marine mammal in the area, said pushing through the current plan would be detrimental to the interests of both Japan and the United States.

''U.S. President Barack Obama was named the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and Japan is set to host a major U.N. conference on preserving biodiversity next year. Destroying the environment for the Futemma relocation would hamper the two countries' ambitions to be front-runners in conservation and would draw criticism from the international community,'' he said.
Quote:
Higashionna said he believes Obama can ''feel other people's pain'' and that he expects the president to give up on the existing Futemma transfer plan.
Quote:
Ashitomi and the assembly member also pointed out that the plan involving the reclamation of some offshore areas was enlarged to incorporate the demands of Japanese vested interests -- namely construction businesses and politicians representing the industry -- and can be regarded as a ''wasteful public works project.''
Quote:
Defense analyst Motoaki Kamiura, 60, said that from a military viewpoint the United States does not need new runways at Camp Schwab as he believes the emergency response capabilities of U.S. forces have been enhanced over the years to reduce the need to forward deploy tens of thousands of servicemen.
Quote:
Kamiura said, however, he thinks the threat of North Korea will decline sooner or later with leader Kim Jong Il's health problems, eliminating the need to have a major Marine presence in Okinawa, where the corps was originally deployed to respond to a contingency on the Korean Peninsula.

Anyway, if that priest had any knowledge in current affairs, he should have dressed more discreetly to avoid being mistaken for a terrorist.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

A-bombed cities, Okinawa disappointed by Hatoyama-Obama talks

Quote:
‘‘I expected the president to commit himself to apologizing to ‘hibakusha’ by visiting Hiroshima and Nagasaki,’’ said Koichi Kawano, 69, chairman of the Japan Congress Against A- and H-Bombs, or Gensuikin, referring to survivors of the 1945 bombings.

‘‘Although he came all the way to Japan, there were no comments that went further than his Prague speech’’ in April in which Obama set out his vision for a world free of nuclear weapons, Kawano said.

Nobuto Hirano, a 62-year-old son of a hibakusha in Nagasaki who is supporting hibakushas living in South Korea, said, ‘‘It is inconsistent in the first place for the United States as a nuclear weapons state to call for the elimination of nuclear arms without declaring it will abandon its own.’’
Quote:
In the Okinawa prefectural capital of Naha, Okinawa Gov Hirokazu Nakaima said he is disappointed that Hatoyama and Obama did not mention how to resolve the thorny issue of where to relocate a major U.S. airfield in Okinawa in their talks.

‘‘It was disappointing that no specific reference was made’’ to the issue of the U.S. Marine Corps’ Futenma Air Station, Nakaima said in a statement as head of a prefecture that hosts the bulk of U.S. forces in Japan.
Quote:
‘‘I wonder if the wishes of many Okinawan residents for a relocation out of the prefecture have reached President Obama,’’ said Sakae Toyama, a 69-year-old peace activist in Ginowan.

‘‘It’s no easy task to convey the real voices of Okinawa to the U.S. president,’’ Toyama said, adding, ‘‘We will first call on the Japanese government to unify’’ its stance on the relocation matter, as some of Hatoyama’s cabinet members have floated different ideas about it.

We'll have our own Moon amusement park, with beer, blackjack and hookers!

This is actually quite exciting news and I can see why they're ecstatic. Sooner or later we'll find life so where!

*facepalm* There are no whales on the moon, because there is no atmosphere to contain air to which it can dissolve in the water.

There's no air for them to breath, which is plenty. Whales are mammals, not fish. Unless they're space whales. In that case, all bets are off.
