    The historical challenges that the USA has with Japan include more than just the A bombs or even civil/dual use of technology that the USA is wary of. Interesting article here, with a ground level view of old wounds in Okinawa – the sort of thing that must be addressed for progress…

    … but is Obama aware of such grievances? Is he able to act at all?
