No doubt this sudden "about face" has everything to do with American consumer spending on Okinawa in such tough economic times.
I don't doubt the North Koreans have them concerned but I suspect their real fear comes from the Chinese.
They need us. Send them the bill.
Why are we leaving our troops in South Korea as a target for a North Korea armed with atomic bombs and governed by a maniac?

Having spent 14 long months on the “Rock”, and considering the 25,000 casualties the US paid in blood for this island, we should never had returned Okinawa it to it's brutal masters.
The Okinawans were slaves of the Japs and used as slave labor to build their island fortresses in the Pacific. They were once an independent country and genetically differ from the Japs.
There ARE too many Marine on the island. When I was there, sometimes it felt like the island was going to tip over when everyone rushed in town on liberty on the weekend. I know what the Congressman from S.C. was talking about.
