The Okinawans still talk about the rape from 1995 (Click here). This can't be good.
Here is the original story: http://www.stripes.com/article.asp?section=104&article=52400
We will be out of Japan in less than 10 years.
with china and north korea still up to their shit, i find that doubtful.
With the value of the land we are squatting on, I find it very possible.
I've been hearing rumors that they are moving to Guam, at least the Marines are, for a while now.
I just talked to a fellow Marine, and he says he's heard its gonna be Guam. And its gonna start with the wing first, since there's an air field there already. He also mentioned that USMC wants to build a combat training facility in Australia like the one at 29 stumps.
all i can say is lol @ okinawa government if they kick us out. they don't realize how much money is poured into that island. not just from the people stationed there, but ships pull in all the time. all those shops around kadena are gonna go belly up if they leave.
lol, yeah, they're gonna go back to farming. What's the military population in Okinawa, anyone know?
Gate 2 street is gonna hurt bad. Specially all the bars and clubs. Whoever starts a business in Guam is gonna be making some serious cash if we end up there.
Military population here with dependents and contractors are about 70,000.
If all bases were kicked off then they'd turn then this island would depend on tourism. I sincerely doubt anything is going to happen though because they were just going to close Camp Futenma in order to move everything north of the island to the new air strip at Camp Schwab.
Yeah, what a shit storm that SSgt started. I am based on Courtney as well, never saw him though. I have already sat through 3 briefs related to this whole issue.
And yeah, we are moving to Guam... won't take long after we leave for this island to turn into a little farming island again I figure. And Gate 2 and Kin town are gonna be ghost towns. Heh.
How small is Guam? I know Okinawa is like some 60 odd miles long.
According to wikipedia.org
Guam - 209.85 sq mi
Okinawa - 463.70 sq mi
guam is small, its just an island with 2 runways.
