Outside the port, however, a small group of citizens protested the aircraft carrier’s deployment as a move to step up Japan’s military cooperation with the U.S.

It figures. Well at least they're not protesting about the very fact that it is a "nuclear powered" vessel. Seems like the japanese are finally coming around on that issue.

Three destroyers are set to be deployed later this year to Yokosuka, near Tokyo, bringing the number of Yokosuka-based U.S. warships to 14, the largest since Japan’s World War II defeat in 1945, Kyodo News reported.

I can't see why they would be doing this unless they know something that we don't and China is the reason. Why else have such a heavy presence in the area. I doubt North Korea would be the case so is this a show of force to warn China about its growing policy of grabbing land or building it up to claim the South China Seas?

Keep the Reagan there. It is already contaminated.

no need to call it a nuclear carrier, as it redundant....there are no non-nuclear carriers. Sort of like how people who are not from New York call it New York City....

Actually, there is a very good reason to call it a nuclear carrier, if you know anything about "post War" Japanese politics.

the presence there for the US Navy is to show "those" that we help protect our Friends. Having the "Reagan" there is also a great boost, as well as all the other Ships.
