The Osprey is built by Boeing right down the road in Ridley Park.  Would that they were making wind turbines!

Okinawa Wants Our Base Out

Filed under: American Empire, New Priorities — Tags: , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 12:19 pm

Approximately 25,000 American troops are based in the most populous part of Okinawa.  The US has offered to move them to a quieter area, but the Okinawans want them gone, and they have elected a Governor who has promised to get rid of them.  The usefulness of this base and its many troops, dependents, and civilian hangers-on is questionable even as North Korea flexes its muscles.
