Sunday’s Ryukyu Shimpo wrote that in a report on the U.S. forces in FY2021 released by the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) on March 18, CSIS senior adviser Mark Cancian argued that the construction of the Futenma Replacement Facility at Henoko “continues to have difficulties, with the completion date pushed out again, to 2030, and the price skyrocketing.” He added that “it appears unlikely that this will ever be completed.” Concerning the plan to relocate Marines from Okinawa to Guam and Hawaii, the report said: “The current plan is for the number of Marines on Okinawa to be halved, to 11,500, by 2027.” Saturday’s Okinawa Times ran a similar report.
