See what happens when the UN with US oversight (UN was created for Anglo-American global hedge-money, sorry, I mean hegemony) placed economic sanctions on North Korea which apparently were the “strictest sanctions in decades“? South Korea’s foreign minister, Yun Byung-se, called it a “land mark resolution with the strongest ever non-military sanctions.” In light of this, Japan’s Shinzo Abe decided to stop plans to relocate US Marines on Okinawa. Too bad for the people who live in Okinawa, the military buildup trumps local resentment. Sort of justifies further military buildup going on in Japan, after all, can’t let the North Koreans get too uppity can we?
Notice financial structures are always followed by the military as China continues its economic, military and technological advances to say nothing of massive gold reserves and its planned currency being used world-wide. The news on television all morning focused on Japan’s purchasing American manufactured THAAD missile systems and joint American-Japanese military exercises. Don’t worry, there will be no nuclear war with North Korea, it’s just another round of intentional provocation for further weapons systems development and lucrative militarization. I find it interesting USA Today uses embedded url hyper links to their references to Wikipedia. As if Wikipedia is the final word on facts used in USA Today news stories?

Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Friday he has decided to temporarily suspend preliminary work on moving a U.S. Marine Corps base on Okinawa and will resume talks on the contentious relocation plan.
TOKYO – Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Friday he has decided to temporarily suspend preliminary work on moving a U.S. Marine Corps base on Okinawa and will resume talks on the contentious relocation plan.
The central government and Okinawa’s prefectural government have been locked in a legal battle over relocating the base, with both sides suing the other.
Abe said that his government is accepting a court proposal not to force the reclamation work over Okinawa’s objections. The court in February made the proposal as an interim step allowing talks. Details of the proposal were not made public.
The sudden reversal of his policy to continue with the reclamation work is seen as a vote-buying attempt ahead of this summer’s parliamentary elections.
Okinawa Gov. Takeshi Onaga last year issued an order to suspend permission for the reclamation work. Then the central government sued to reverse the order, to which Okinawa counter-sued, seeking a court injunction.
The work involves filling in part of a bay to create off-coast runways for Futenma air station, which is now in a more densely populated area on the island.
