R. Van Conoley ( Editor’s Note: The above information is factual and not based upon opinion. The opinion of the editor of WWW.Sanityandsense.com remains that the United States is seriously mistaken in maintaining U.S. military personnel in Japan 75 years after World War II ended. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever for maintaining U.S. forces in Japan in any capacity. Also, the U.S. and Japan have signed treaties that bind the U.S. and Japan together if Japan should be attacked. All treaties with Japan are outdated and serve three very negative purposes: 1) They serve to commit the U.S. to favor Japan in all disputes in the Asian region. This is extremely unwise. 2) The government of Japan is perfectly capable of defending itself in the Asian region. With North Korea now in possession of Nuclear weapons, many believe that the region would be more stable if Japan also had nuclear weapons. 3) While the Trump administration is re-evaluating the role of the U.S. with Mainland China, and that is a very wise decision, the U.S. should display a more neutral role regarding China and Japan. )
