 米海兵隊駐留「沖縄でなくても良い」 前太平洋軍司令官
http://www.asahi.com/politics/update/0415/TKY201004150462.html

 太田さんの考えの正しさを裏付ける記事だと思うのですが……。

<太田>

 日本の中なら沖縄でなくても良い、と言っているだけなので、必ずしもそうじゃなさそうですねえ。

<σσββ>(「たった一人の反乱」より)

≫ご承知のように沖縄は島嶼県で、多くの島々からなり、島それぞれで生活様式や思考様式も異なります。≪(コラム#3949。TM)

 北部の人はヤンバル(山の人)といって沖縄ではちょっと見下げられているからね。
 石垣島なんかの周辺諸島は沖縄本島から過酷な収奪を受けていたのが明治維新で開放されたから独立論には幼児体験的にまた沖縄本島に縛られることになるっていう意識が働いて反対なんじゃないのかな。
 もっとも佐藤優氏出身の久米島は周辺諸島征圧の際に本島軍の先鋒になって活躍したおかげで本島からの収奪から免れたみたいだからまた意識が違うだろうね。
 奄美は半植民地の本島と違って薩摩の完全植民地で江戸時代、餓死者も沢山出たそうだから、ある意味、明治維新で開放されたという感覚は強いかもしらん。

 それでは、その他の記事の紹介です。

 ボク、オバマの気持ちは痛いほどよーく分かる。↓

 「・・・「オバマ米大統領は、鳩山さんと会談するのは本当に嫌だ、顔も見たくないというような表現までしたそうだ」。町村信孝元外相は15日、自民党町村派の総会あいさつで自ら得た米側関係者の情報として明かした。・・・」
http://mainichi.jp/select/world/news/20100416ddm002010050000c.html
 「・・・日本経済新聞が4月15日に「日米関係筋」の話として伝えたところによると、夕食会の席上で、鳩山首相が隣の席に座るオバマ大統領に「5月末までに決着させたい。大統領もぜひ協力願いたい」と述べたところ、オバマ大統領は「しかし、進展していない」と述べたとされる。また、時事通信では、「日米両政府の複数の関係者」の話として、オバマ大統領は鳩山首相に「きちんと責任を取れるのか」と発言したことを伝えている。・・・」

 この会談を茶化して報じたコラムに日本政府は一丸となって不快感を表明。↓

 「・・・藤崎一郎駐米大使は15日の記者会見で、核安全保障サミットに出席した鳩山由紀夫首相に関し、米紙ワシントン・ポストが14日付のコラムで「首相が最大の敗者」などと報じたことについて、「一国の首相に対して失礼だ」と不快感を示した。・・・」

 今まで見つけることができなかった、話題の上記コラム、ようやく発見。(邦訳は、ライブドアの記事(上掲)を見てね。)↓

 ・・・By far the biggest loser of the extravaganza was the hapless and (in the opinion of some Obama administration officials) increasingly loopy Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama. He reportedly requested but got no bilat. The only consolation prize was that he got an "unofficial" meeting during Monday night's working dinner. Maybe somewhere between the main course and dessert?
A rich man's son, Hatoyama has impressed Obama administration officials with his unreliability on a major issue dividing Japan and the United States: the future of a Marine Corps air station in Okinawa. Hatoyama promised Obama twice that he'd solve the issue. ・・・
 It is supposed to do that by May. So far, nothing has come in over the transom. Uh, Yukio, you're supposed to be an ally, remember? Saved you countless billions with that expensive U.S. nuclear umbrella? Still buy Toyotas and such?
Meanwhile, who did give Hatoyama some love at the nuclear summit? Hu did. Yes, China's president met privately with the Japanese prime minister on Monday. ・・・

 この国際会議↑の際、オバマはこんなことまでやってたんだから、そりゃ忙しかっただろうて。
 むろん、鳩山首相と会うよりゃよっぽどこっちの方が生産的だわ。↓

 ・・・the arrangements for Bakiyev to leave were worked out earlier this week during a meeting among President Obama, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
 Bakiyev submitted his resignation and left with only his wife and two small children, members of the new Kyrgyz government said, suggesting that the deposed autocrat had dropped demands that two of his brothers suspected of involvement in the killings of his critics and in last week's deadly shootings be allowed to go into exile as well. ・・・
 Otunbayeva said her government agreed to let Bakiyev leave at the urging of international mediators to avoid further bloodshed but planned to fully investigate his tenure and demand that he be put on trial in domestic or international court. ・・・

 ポーランドの王様や英雄達を埋葬する教会に、今回航空機事故で亡くなった大統領を埋葬するという話に反発が同国内で起こっています。↓

 ・・・ the pilots … might have been pressured by their superiors to attempt the landing. Could it have been Kaczynski or one of the generals who forced the pilots to do so?"
 "As long as it remains unclear who made the fatal decision to land in Smolensk, the decision regarding the final resting place of the president and first lady should be put off. And, in any case, it shouldn't be in (Wawel), where Poland's kings, national poets and saints are buried. The fact that Kaczynski died in a tragic airplane accident doesn't make him a national hero."
 "Paying Kaczynski this respect also allows the government to pin blame for the accident on someone before the national week of mourning has ended. Moscow is saying that pilot error caused it and that (Russian air traffic controllers) had expressly and repeatedly warned the pilots not to attempt a landing in Smolensk."
 "Should Poland's government also choose to accept this version of events, the reputation of Polish pilots would also suffer. Pilots who can't correctly evaluate dangers present a security risk. It's high time for the black boxes' transcripts to be made public. We need the facts."・・・

 以前にも取り上げたことあったと思うけど、結婚、離婚等の健康への影響が詳細に論じられてるよ。↓

 ・・・a hostile fight with your husband or wife isn’t just bad for your relationship. It can have a profound toll on your body. ・・・
 ・・・when the married people became single again ? either by divorce or because of the death of a spouse ? they suffered a decline in physical health from which they never fully recovered. These men and women had 20 percent more chronic health issues, like heart disease and diabetes, than those who were still married to their first husband or wife by middle age. The divorced and widowed also had aged less gracefully, reporting more problems going up and down stairs or walking longer distances. ・・・
 Does marrying again benefit those who divorce, in terms of health? ・・・remarriage helped only a little. It seemed to heal emotional wounds: the remarried had about the same risk for depression as the continuously married. But a second marriage didn’t seem to be enough to repair the physical damage associated with marital loss. Compared with the continuously married, people in second marriages still had 12 percent more chronic health problems and 19 percent more mobility problems・・・
 ・・・hand-holding reduced the neural activity in areas of the woman’s brain associated with stress. But when the woman was holding her husband’s hand, the effect was even greater, and it was particularly pronounced in women who had the highest marital-happiness scores. ・・・

 ロムプイEU大統領が自作の俳句集を出版したけど、面白いこと言ってるよ。↓

 ・・・He claimed poetry had made him a better politician: "A haiku poet, in politics, cannot be extravagant, nor super-vain, nor extremist.
 "He should incorporate into his actions a sense of balance, the desire for simplicity and harmony, the feeling of being part of a larger part."・・・

 フラマン語でつくった句に英仏独とラテン語訳がついてて、下に英訳した彼の句を2つ掲げたけど、英語でもちゃんと五七五(音節)になってんだね。↓

 "Airy flakes of snow/softly land on the branches/Beauty in layers." ・・・ "To dine at leisure/flooded in bright sunlight:/the perfect summer."・・・
