President Barack Obama has postponed his visit to Indonesia and Australia.
According to the Yomikei Shimbun, this sudden decision is yet more evidence, along with the sudden cancellation of Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Kurt Campbell's visit, of the Obama Administration's mounting anger at the government of Prime Minister Hatoyama Yukio over the decision to revise the planned relocation of the Marine Corps Air Station Futenma. Mr. Obama will clearly not even visit Asia until this impasse is resolved.
Yes. I am kidding. Come on, it's Friday.
