Like Germany, Japan has been occupied by the US for 70 years. Like Germany, it is not an independent country. Like Germany, it is compelled to toe the line dictated by Washington. Then there are a number of smaller states where the US has stationed its military on a permanent basis. Kosovo, for instance, where Camp Bondsteel is among the biggest US military installations in the world.
Then you have Greece, Spain, Italy, the Philippines, and dozens more. Interestingly, whoever wants to remove US bases from his country is immediately branded an “anti-American,” an enemy of peace (indeed, of the Pax americana) and paranoid. Such hysterical reactions are on the hand not unusual among US people, even among those who can be considered educated, but on the other hand, they demonstrate how vitally important all those foreign military bases are to the US.
