Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan Focus;11/4/2013, Vol. 11 Issue 44, p2
The author calls on the closure of the U.S. Marine Corps' Futenma base in Japan to prevent accidents after a U.S. military heavy-lift helicopter crashed at the Okinawa International University on August 13, 2014. It occurred after former U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld dubbed the base as the world's most dangerous one. He believes that shutting it down is the best solution. He also cites his questions about the safety of U.S. aircraft that he wants U.S. pilots and experts to answer.
