90,000 Protest U.S. Base in Japan

TOKYO — More than 90,000 Okinawans rallied Sunday to oppose the relocation of an American air base on their island, adding to the pressure on Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama to resolve an issue that has divided Tokyo and Washington.

Since his party’s landmark election victory last summer, Mr. Hatoyama has promised to come up with an alternative plan that would reduce the heavy American presence on the southern Japanese island, home to nearly half of the 50,000 United States military personnel in Japan. He has given himself until the end of May to put together such a plan that would also be acceptable to Washington.

Note : America has had the Bases in Japan-Germany Since WW2... Today America has Bases, Fortified Outposts, Communications interception etc, in over 150 countries of the world

Global Deployments

150+ out of 193-203 Sovereign States... America has a Military presence in over 75% of the world

Sanctions, World Bank-IMF and United Nations "Peacekeeping" forces occupy most of the other 25%, with a few Exceptions like Iran, North Korea, Venezuela etc...
