50,000 Troops...Where?

I recently read that there are 50,000 US troops occupying Japan.

That's right. Japan. 50,000 men.

With an estimated United States Population of 298,800,000 people, this means that one in 5,976 americans are troops stationed in a country that has been an ally for fifty years. This doesn't include troops still stationed in Germany, France, and other countries that are as much threat to our security as a damp piece if bread.

Hooray for the United States, guarding us from our allies.
