Oh Dear: Defiant Wife of Japanese PM Abe Visits US Okinawa Base Construction Protest:
Japan’s first lady Akie Abe says she is “ready to face criticism” after attending an anti-government rally, protesting the construction of new helipads at the US-operated military in Okinawa.
“This is my first step to create a world of love and harmony,” Akie Abe wrote in a Facebook status update.
Abe said she did not inform her husband in advance about what is bound to be seen as a controversial endorsement of the protests, which have been ignored by Tokyo.
My Commentary: End America’s military occupation of Japan, already! Enough is enough!
