What? You should give more information in the original post.

The better question is what the hell are US military bases doing in Japan in the first place? And why should Japan let them be there? Not to mention the other 150 countries the US is keeping military bases in. Would the US accept other countries putting their own military bases in the US?

Hell no US would never accept other countries but there bases in America. But then the US putting there bases in other nations is a bully tactic America is well known to use to control and regulate other countries.

Why shouldn't they have bases in Japan? It allow America a swift and timely responce should any affairs occur in East/South-East Asia and protect Japan should an invasion of the Island be attempted. Also, why should there be foriegn bases in the United States when there is no legitamite reasons to keep them in our country.

whats stopping the US from attacking Japan using those very bases as footholds onto japanese soil and allowing an invasion? congress? dont think for one minute that the US is "above such a thing" because put simply because humans are dumb. it may be a difficult process but it is possible to declare war.

come to think of it there r no foreign military bases r there

Mainly because 1- The Japanese do have a Nat'l Self Defence force, which, while incomparable to our grand army, would be able to hold out long enough to recieve aid from allies 2- China will use this oppertunity to 'save' Japan, making us lose face, and boosting China's image in the world 3- We would have the whole world against us.

It's in our interest to keep stability in the Far East, seeing as most of our products come from that area.

My cousin has been in the U.S. Navy for years and she gets hassled every time they land there. She doesn't even know the point of landing there except to be hassled by people who want them to leave. Japan should be responsible for their own defenses by now. Yanks, go home. Same with the Koreans. Leave it to them to decide their fate.

And if any affairs need to be intervened in Southeast Asia on their part, somebody go tell the American military to go clean up all the unexploded bomb ordinance they dropped all over Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia more than 30 years ago.

Well, if N. Korea decides to strike S. Korea, with the backing of several nations, then our interest is in stake, and, with our Japanese base, it would be most beneficial to our effort if we had a base in Japan.

But... does Japan really have any interest in keeping the foreign army on their soil? And, as far as I know, its not the problem that there are US bases there (at least it is minor problem), but that the LAND where ONE (okinawa?) base is located can be put to better use - for tourists or housing. IDK - what is the point in having base exactly there, when it can be easily allocated where they will not bother anyone? If it were me, I would close tons of useless bases and invest that money in economy. Or is investing in US military the same as investing in economy?
