A bold prediction

February 10, 2010 12:00 AM

Michael Green, former Director of Asian affairs, NSC, and Richard Lee Armitage, former Deputy Secretary of State voiced their concerns about the Hatoyama Government.
Hatoyama or his government, if I may boldly predict, will end up relocating Futenma to Camp Schwab. The question is at what price. Will Hatoyama commit harakiri or his cabinet minister, or ministers? Mr. EDANO Yukio was appointed a cabinet minister. Is he to replace the Chief Cabinet Secretary in May, or will he replace Mr. MAEHARA, Construction & Transportation Minister, who most likely replace either Okada or Kitazawa? His sudden appointment is very interesting.
