Kay Shimizu, a visiting assistant professor at Harvard University, joins Daljit Dhaliwal to discuss why the presence of 47,000 U.S. troops in Okinawa is causing controversy and why the new Japanese government may pull out its naval support of the war in Afghanistan.

US government should re-think its MIlitary Bases in Okinawa Japan with the follwing:

*reduce the size of the US Military Base in Japan
*stop draining our precious dollars because Japan is too expensive to maintain our US Military Bases.
*the Philippine is better place for the US Bases because of its strategic location. Far better than Japan.
