I think that the impact is that people in Okinawa started not to trust each other, and they wanted to do everything they could to become Japanese because the way to define who was spy or national traitors was completely different than It was before. Also, the local culture would be hidden and impaired.

Although Okinawans knew there were “comfort women”, they were afraid of causing conflict with Japanese troops and being labeled as spies. So they had no choice but to obey the military law.
