Be careful of what you wish for. I don't have any stake in any of this. I'm not military, nor am I Japanese, but I'm smart enough to know you can't just remove 75 years of history and think everything will go back to "the way it was". The families who lost their land in 1945 (???) will not get "their land" back. Whose knows 100% for certain what will happen if zero US military personal are stationed in Japan??? There's a saying, "fences make for good neighbors". The US, Japan, China, and Korea all like talking tough, but we all know these countries are pretty well balanced or accustomed to each other's talk. What happens when these few local citizens get their wish, and the US leaves? What happens to that balance than? It's not like Japan and China were best of friends before the US built their base there. You really think each side will stop talking tough?

Not sure about this trend. It's not jeans hanging below your butt, so that's good. And, I'm sure Japanese women will find a way to make this super cute, so that's great. Not too sure about seeing some dudes walking around in skin-tight "anything". That's bad! LOL
