I am posting this into this forum, because Japan - US relations on that matter (bases) made a lot of headlines during the last weeks.
I might sound rude, but what is it with those people, raping over 127 women since 1972, including a 12 year old CHILD in 1995 by 3 US soldiers?
What is wrong with those "soldiers"? And moreover, why are they being taken into US custody for a trial, instead of doing in in Japan?
I am born in Japan, in he early 80's. I don't remember much, because we moved after two years, but my father told me so many stories about that country. It's a shame that it almost lost a big part of it's national identity due to the US presence, and those incidents just make things even worse.
