    You guys are forgetting the all important lobbying power of the "Mama-Sans" to keep Marines and other US forces on Okinawa.

    It definitely won't break if if we don't shut it down.

    So we can just end up with the same scenario that we had in 1940? How much did WW2 cost?

    I got an idea: let's stop pissing money away on social programs that don't work and turtle tunnels and spend it more wisely.

    Seems like a silly arguement. How are a few tropps in Japan going to prevent WWIII.

    People seem to think we can keep spending money and let our kids pick up the tab. I find that amoral. People have to say I agree on reducing spending, except on what I think we need to spend on!!

    How many troops did we have in the region prior to WW2? None, right?

    I hope you're not one of those cats that support Obamacare and the porkulus package.

    No I do not support either. I have an 18 year old son. I do not him to grow up in a nation that has trillions of foreign debt because of his dad's generation of wasteful spending.

    Still protesting this, are they? Shoot, they've been protesting our presence on Okinawa since the 60's. Maybe one day they'll get their wish.

    Please explain how conditions in the world right now are similar to those before WWII?
    Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.
