Yeah that is realy sad. I can understand that they want to build it off shore due to the lack of space on land... But what they will destroy in the process is too valuable. The photos of the reef and the fish etc are so nice. Apart from the reef... It's all out of japanese tax payers money aswell?! ( "Estimated one trillion yen of Japanese tax money is going to be spent to build this U.S. military base." ) It's not even a Japanese air base.

I wish I knew why we need so many military installations in japan, anyway. It's not like the country is getting bigger so we need more bases to give them more protection. Heh.
China and North Korea.

[On a side note... Why is it I keep seeing computer games nowadays which apparently are set in the near future and have The US, China and a middle eastern group fighting against each other? That realy annoys me.]
The Middle East has oil, and probably a lot more, but since it's war-torn (relatively speaking) the demand will rise, and prices would go up. This might create more of an economic conflict, but there could be fights over oil, although it may not be as severe as what I typed ahead.
China is sucking a lot of oil right now, with its rapid expansionism and huge population. China has oil, and is importing some, but eventually the demand is going to be greater than the need, and I think that when that happens, China's going to take the resources it needs by either persuading Russia to drill in Siberia or taking oil rigs in the Pacific Rim, more than likely the conviniently located Japan, for whom China has held a grudge against for the past 60 years. More than likely you're going to attack the enemy for resources than your neutral neighbors or allies.
There's going to be one more big war eventually, and right now I'm betting it's going to be in China and the Middle East,
