Judge: U.S. military must consider threats to sea cow near base

SAN FRANCISCO—A federal judge has ordered the U.S. Department of Defense to consider the impact of its proposed military base in Japan on an endangered sea cow that lives in waters around the island of Okinawa.

U.S. District Judge Marilyn Hall Patel ruled Thursday that the U.S. military violated federal law when it failed to evaluate the air station's potential effects on the Okinawa dugong, a 1,000-pound marine mammal related to the manatee.

The judge sided with environmentalists who claimed plans to relocate the Futenma Air Station would threaten the dugong, which is listed as a "natural monument" on the Japanese Register of Cultural Properties.

The U.S. government had asked the judge to dismiss the case, saying the issue should be left to the Japanese and U.S. governments.

What a damn idiot..............US judge tells us Navy what they can do in Japan :mental:

Only San Fran

3. "proposed military base in japan"?
 instead of building still MORE overseas military installations- we should be bringing virtually ALL of our armed forces stationed overseas HOME, and shrinking the size of the Dept. of War Defense, if we want to have any hope of salvaging our economy.

4. Yeah, and they take all the very best real estate in poor Okinawa. 
 And there ain't that much to begin with. Like the rest of the world, the locals don't want us.

This person has no idea

Save the critically endangered Okinawa Dugong
 http://www.okinawa-u.ac.jp/~tsuchida/Save-Dugong/englis...

The US is forcing the Japanese to allow them to open another base in the vicinity of the critically endangered Nothernmost Dugong.  The Dugong are loved and revered in Japan as the "mermaid of the sea".

Yeah but Sea Cow milk taste terrible.  :p

And yet when Rumsfeld tried to realign our deployments into more sensible configurations the libs squealed like sodomized pigs.

U.S. Airbase in Okinawa Dugong Habitat on Hold
 Source: Environment News Service

SAN FRANCISCO, California, January 24, 2008 (ENS) - The seagrass habitat of the endangered Okinawa dugong is safe from the U.S. Department of Defense, at least for the next 90 days. The sea mammal, cousin to the Florida manatee, will continue to swim in Henoko Bay off the Japanese island of Okinawa in the place where the United States plans to build an airbase.

A federal judge in San Francisco Wednesday ruled that the Department of Defense, DOD, is in violation of the National Historic Preservation Act for failing to consider the impacts of a new airbase on the dugong in order to avoid or mitigate any harm.

The dugong is significant in Okinawan culture. It is associated with traditional Okinawan creation mythology, and is sometimes considered to be the progenitor of the local people. Because of its cultural significance, the dugong is listed as a protected "natural monument" on the Japanese Register of Cultural Properties.

The lawsuit was brought by three individual Japanese citizens, six American and Japanese environmental associations, and the Okinawa dugong, which is listed as a plaintiff in court documents
.

The sea cow is a plaintiff  :rotf:

As testy as the Japanese have been about basing issues over the past couple of decades, I'm having a really hard time believing they give a rat's ass about this critter.  Or possibly they do, and don't see this plan as actually affecting it in any way that matters.
