Edwin O. Reichauer

ライシャワー先生の評伝が、静かに静かに、しかし、魅力的な人間性が描写された本として、又、日米関係の安定の為に、広く読まれ始めた。

If Reichauer were alive today, he would take great satisfactgin in the achievements of the countryu of his birth. It is peace-loving, wealthyu, democratic society and a beacon for other Asian nations.(中略)

Edwin Reichauer would be dismayed by the lack of competent p;olitical leadership in Japan and the lack of a coherent set of foreign-policy gorals. (中略)

He would look at the state of the US-Japan alliance and ask why Japan's voice is so weak and passive. Why didi Japan meekly support President Geoge Bush 's terrible mistake in invading Iraqu in 2003 and six hundred troops as evidence of its support? Why could Prime Minister Koizumi not have emulated President Chirac of France or Chancellor Schroeder of Germanay, who refused to support the unilateral invasion, and sished instedad to place the matter before the United Nations? In this matter, Reichauer would renew his call for a truly equal partnership.

He would call for major changes in force and base structure: the withdrawal fo most US troops from Okinawa and the sharing of land and naval bases with Japan's Self-Defense Forces. He would be embarrassed for his country that Washington is demanding that Japan help pay for the shift of US troops to Saipan. He would favor closing down Futenma and shifting US ari power to Kadena Air Force Base. He would rely on American air and naval power to deter any  possible NOrth Korean aggression.
