in the philippines, we have kicked out military bases from america...that's what we thought.

they hid it under the "visiting forces agreement act"

when Lance Corporal Daniel Smith allegedly raped "nicole", the US ambassador in the Phillippines threw all the "good deeds of america" to our face.

btw, i heard "nicole" is in america. If any filipinos find her there, give her a b**** slap

The whole idea is ridiculous. The U.S. spends its own money to have a military base in Japan. Japan spends its own money to ensure the military base stays. The U.S. spends more money than Japan does on its own defenses because it's not allowed to build its military, despite everyone saying there are threats from North Korea. It makes no sense.


Not just N. Korea. Just because we seem all dandy with China, doesn't mean that we won't go to war with 'em.


We? You mean the U.S.? Well that's just fine because I'm pretty sure the U.S. can take care of itself. But Japan should be allowed to take care of itself as well, which the U.S. pointlessly denies them the ability to.


They do have the ability to defend itself- look up 'JSDF' if you don't believe me. We have a base there to gaurd our interest, protect the East Asian nations from Communist Agression, &c.

Maybe Japan doesn't like the feeling of having foreign troops in their country...

Hey genius, before you let your shit come out of your mouth again, you should do a little research as it seems like you don't know anything, and stop embarassing us real Americans with your ignorance.


For starters, the US have SEVERAL bases in South Korea, and had them for ages. Have you heard of Wikipedia? It's American... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_military_bases

Secondly, it's not all the Japanese that want the Americans out. It's not all the South Koreans that want them out either. It's only SOME, so it's not fair for you to say, "Why do they want to kick our military out?"

Thirdly, what right does the US have to have their troups on foreign soil? None. But it's always nice to have some support over some common enemy - North Korea, and perhaps China (since they're best friends.)

GET SOME COMMON SENSE!

I am not saying that they don't have bases in S. Korea and such.

Why did the the former Prime Minister win? Based upon his promises to secure more independence from America as well as ridding Okinawa of those abhorrant bases. Because he was not able to do so, he resigned.

N. Korea and China are not 'best friends'. While China does have more sympathy towards N. Korea, they are also the one applying the most pressure on that country. N. Korea is a threat, true, but they are about as great a threat to the world as walking the street is a threat to your life, seeing as their weaponry is far from advance, and their missiles seems to purposely miss their targets just to spite Pyongyang.

So, what is this 'Common Sense' but what the common deems sense? These great and august personages who, more often than not, are proven wrong, and serve as proof to the deficiency of Democracy.

Your right we should not have wasted on American life on that piece of trash Philippines. Better yet maybe it should be let the Muslims keep pushing your people around and out. The USMC is one tough court for military personnel and proving your Innocent has a much higher standard then most court rooms. Mass a hysteria dose not play much in a military courtroom. Maybe you have it wrong and just bought into the hype. How many poeple would loose there income when we pull out. Personnaly I do not care just do not look to us to bail you out it would save us billions to pull out.

I lived in Okinawa and is in fact Japanese and even though i live here in the u.s and like it here, i don't believe its right to have the American bases on Okinawa especially since they are trying to build more which is truly unnecessary. Although having some bases are beneficial since they do provide jobs and i guess what people would call protection from attacks but having to many American soldiers and bases is not what i would vote for, for my home place of Okinawa. I think for many people the bases are an intrusion on their old tradition and life as well as i know from experience just an annoyance. Many Japanese especially in place like Okinawa where there are a lot of older people, i think its a disturbance to them. Not all soldiers are good and some even are disrespectful to our culture and some i would say fear the young American soldiers. I just think Americans need to look at why they push the soldiers to go there when its not truly necessary and try to build more bases, America is a democratic state which gives choices to the people, what the majority wants they get. So why should the bases not be abolished if and i say if the majority of japan would like for the bases to be destroyed.

And how many innocent lives have the American's killed in the wars all over the world and disrespected them and humiliated them in their own countries. Only reason American's are able to keep their weapons and army its not because you guys don't do stupid stuff like murder for your own benefit but its because you won the war. Japanese people are no different from American's and honestly i would think we are no more violent then Americans that are here. Just because the Japanese tried to benefit something years ago and screwed up and made a mistake don't think we are the same as before. and let me tell you about your us service man who are there. This is not fact for all but from experience i know that some rape women or maybe even children because they think they can get away with it, they fight, they get drunk and cause trouble, maybe that's why some fear them, so in all honesty Americans are not to be trusted just as much as any other country. America has done many wrongs but like a sneaky child who thinks his amazing and everybody see's his kinda special, you get away with it.

In America the biggest war crime were in the civil war booth north and south murder prisoners of war. What the Japanese did was even more cruel if I am not mistaken Japan is not looked highly from that war. We never would have entered it but we did have the right to stop shipping to Japan do to their wars and breaking off League of Nations rules. Killing civilian in war time is normal back then and even now. We spend a great deal of money tying to take out just the enemy as of now. Taking whole groups out and slaughtering them well Japan has use beat hands down. Total war came from WW2 destroy everything. People talk about the A-bomb and, do not mention the firebombing which was far more viscous attack. Have the people changed enough to where the military cannot take over the government and can you protect yourselves. Weather you realized or not you still have plenty of bad blood around you personally I wish no harm to Japan. When I see the US A get painted for the possible actions of a few sailors, and you want to kick the whole fleet out it irritating. I sure there is more than this one issue, behind the scene on both side. The town around military base resent the military personnel yet they want the business from them.
