Bill Adams:

Relying on any other entity that has their own priorities and goals is fraught with danger. I agree that Japan should pay its own way now in its own defense. The three countries mentioned so far are so interconnected economically that all three stand to lose tremendously if any kind of disagreement escalated. Japan and China need to be friends and good neighbors. I choose to see this as neighbors arguing about the tree over the fence and not a thousand years of pissing contests in east Asia.

“The United States’ troop presence in Okinawa is fundamental to our treaty commitment to the defense of Japan,”

If Japan does not wish the treaty their are many ways to abrogate it. If Okinawa does not want to be associated with Japanese treaty commitments they have options as well. I guarantee you that the US won't intercede in a civil dispute. Go ahead and blame the US for honoring a commitment, but understand that there is another party to this treaty. Perhaps it is time for the treaty to expire.
