Forty one years latter and the Americans are still here. We had such hopes they would leave after reversion.

Um, if America weren't in Okinawa Asia would be much different and more dangerous place? As in, there'd be a war within 5 years or so? Is this not clear to anyone but me?

I agree... Japan has been in peace since, why are you complaining? If war broke out, who are you going to call? Ghostbusters????

Okinawa marks anniversary of return to Japan

Ok. Not that big of a deal, but then...

Protests were planned in Tokyo and there were no official ceremonies in Okinawa.

Sounds to me like Okinawa DIDN'T mark the anniversary.

Dude, say that to people of Iraq, who have terracts every single day.They bow there heads and put on smiles while dying of bombs, saying: god bless US for peace and democracy that they brought to us
