Okinawa Governor Warns of Civil Unrest if US Doesn't Give Up Local Marine Base....They're becoming a bit tiresome....

Should the US prolong its military use of Marine Corps Air Station Futenma in the Japanese prefecture of Okinawa, it could see civil unrest in the region, Okinawa Governor Denny Tamaki recently wrote in a letter to US officials.

"If the US continues to use [MCAS Futenma], it may give rise to anti-base protests against all US military bases in Okinawa, or even an overall anti-US movement like what was seen in the past," Tamaki noted, recalling the turbulent days of the early 1970s when Japanese demonstrators unified under an anti-American stance.

"If that happens, such movements would have a significant impact on the Japan-US Security Arrangements as well as the Japan-US Alliance including operation of Kadena Air Base and White Beach Naval Facility."

The protests around USMC bases in Okinawa are becoming a bit tiresome.  The bleating of their politicians has become irritating.

Either you want us there protecting your ass or you don't.  Pick one.  But if you ask us to leave don't come crying when the Chinese crush you into the ground and scatter your bones at sea.

This is why so many Americans want to see US forces brought home from all these overseas bases.

We're not appreciated, nor are we desired.

Its like being in a bad relationship.  If its obvious its not working then its best to leave.
