How the tentacles of the US military are strangling the planet

The #UnitedStates has more than 50,000 #troops in #Japan as well as a very large contingent of #ships and #aircraft. Seventy percent of the #US #bases in Japan are on #Okinawa island. Almost everyone in Okinawa wants the US #military to go. Rape by #American #soldiers – including of young children – has long angered the #Okinawans. Terrible #environmental #pollution – including the harsh noise from US military #aircraft – rankles people. It was not difficult for Tamaki to run on an anti-US-base platform. It is the most basic demand of his constituents.

But the #Japanese #government does not accept the #democratic views of the #Okinawan people. #Discrimination against the Okinawans plays a role here, but more fundamentally there is a lack of regard for the wishes of ordinary people when it comes to a US military base.
...
For decades now, Okinawans have complained about the creation of enclaves of their #island that operate as places for the recreation of American soldiers. Photographer Mao Ishikawa has portrayed these places, the segregated bars where only US soldiers are allowed to go and meet Okinawan women (her book Red Flower: The Women of Okinawa collects many of these pictures from the 1970s).

There have been at least 120 reported rapes since 1972, the “tip of the iceberg,” says Takazato. Every year there is at least one incident that captures the imagination of the people – a terrible act of #violence, a rape or a murder.

What the people want is for the #bases to close, since they see the bases as the reason for these acts of violence. It is not enough to call for #justice after the incidents; it is necessary, they say, to remove the cause of the incidents.
...
The US military has a staggering 883 military bases in 183 countries. In contrast, Russia has 10 such bases – eight of them in the former USSR. China has one overseas military base. There is no country with a military footprint that replicates that of the United States. The bases in Japan are only a small part of the massive infrastructure that allows the US military to be hours away from armed action against any part of the planet.

Clicked the link and went to Google Play Store to check it out, and...

It's not available in my country??

Well, it's not like I need it.
But...

Pourquoi? 🤨

You know, a foreigner who doesn't speak your language might actually leave your app a five star rating.

RooshV is the most famous leader of the "Manosphere" (PUA/MRM). He created the website Return of Kings and an associated forum, which was the biggest place for men to talk, read, share, and learn with and from another. He put it on hiatus last October, but I still recommend to read as many articles there as you possibly can.

#Manosphere means the internet forums, blogs, channels, … that are aimed at non-feminized men, who disagree with the man-hating feminist view of "evil patriarchy" and "toxic masculinity".

#PUA means pick-up art, i.e. the art of #flirting and "game", on how to deal with women. You'll learn what women are looking for in men, how women test men, how you can pass those tests, develop yourself into a desired man and so forth. PUA helps you create relationships with girls, maintain friendships with women, and even protect your marriage.

#MRM means men's rights movement. People in the MRM are mainly concerned about equal rights for fathers and men in all areas where they are being discriminated against. It focuses on #family-court injustice, #divorce injustice, #workplace injustice, #genital-mutilation of #boys, #discrimination against boys & men in school, university and the government at large.
