    Makes sense.

    Time for Japan to lift restrictions on their military.

    Would these bases serve as a canary in a cage? What would these QRFs quickly respond to?

    hi SammyPops,

    as long as Japan's military actions dovetail with US foreign policy, i agree it makes sense and it's fine.

    they can serve as a proxy to US interests.

    Japan should just build a permanent military facility there. Small as it is, there's still room to do that.

    I have hiked on Ishigaki jima. Cool island. Suppose it will be overrun with JDF soon.

    It's a symbolic gesture that doesn't have any practical use. In case armed conflict breaks out, the small garrison is useless against any combined air/naval assault. During a time of sabre rattling, this will only rustle the other side's jimmies, causing a response. China and Japan are better off just holding where they are. Chest puffing never ends well.
