Tokyo, November 1 (RHC)-- In Japan, the newly elected governor of Okinawa, Denny Tamaki, called Tokyo’s continued construction of a new U.S. military base on Okinawa “disrespectful to our democracy.” 

Tamaki was elected last month on a platform of opposition to U.S. bases.  Many residents of the small island have opposed the U.S. military’s presence for decades.
