As an afterthought, perhaps this is opportunity for the Japan to give or sell the Bonins Islands [Iwo Jima] to the US, as various local Perts + Myself believe the Bonins/Volcano Islands are geologically part of the Marianas chain anyways. I also personally believe the Bonins are a part of my ancient Chamorro heritage and culture which was lost in the aftermath of the European conquest of the Marianas, i.e. Spanish-Chamorro wars and Christianization, and since. Japan as a US Ally can still partake in joint international services with the USDOD on the islands. PRAGMATICALLY, IFF TOKYO'S GOVT POLS EXPECT TO RESOLVE LOCAL APATHY OVER THE CONTINUING PRESENCE OF THE US BASES IN JAPAN, THIS OPTION ALLOWS THE US OR US-JAPAN TO REDEV THE OLD WW2 "MARBO" REGION OF GUAM, CNMI + BONINS SAVE OKINAWA TO EFFECTIVELY SUPPORT JAPAN + SOUTH KOREA DURNG TIMES OF CRISIS. The US will still have its milbases in SOUTH KOREA for a long time to come yet,+ likely also support vee TAIWAN.
