Noise Pollution In Okinawa

Do watch this 8 minutes long video to get a brief feeling of what residents of Ginowan City, Okinawa, Japan go through each day (and night). This is the plight that must end. Prime Minister Hatoyama may not be sure how to go about it, but he has the right idea. Main stream media in Washington is mocking him for trying. President Obama, come here and listen to the voices of ordinary citizens (just as U.S. presidents have visited Iraq and other American battle fields).

U.S. Marines have overstayed their welcome after years of abuse. With all due respect to individual men and women who serve in the U.S. military, it is time to leave Japan and the Far East. People here want peace, not more noise, threats, and the usual (oh, so boring) military posturing. It is time to end the cold war in the Far East, and close these U.S. bases. The massive protests on Sunday. April 25, cannot be ignored.

Never mind all the jets/planes/helicopters what about that barking dog after 2'30"!! ;o)

One couldn't make this up, ne. But, the American military doesn't exactly take its orders from anyone. World 'peace' - there's an irony there somewhere...
