Additional Deployment Of Ospreys At US Bases In Japan Put Off

The Pentagon has postponed additional deployment of the controversial Osprey transport aircraft in Japan's Okinawa prefecture in the wake of a U.S. Air Force helicopter crash there.

The U.S. Marine Corps has planned to deploy one dozen more Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft at its Futenma Air Station in Okinawa, and two of them arrived there on Saturday.

But in a statement late on Monday, the U.S. military in Okinawa announced postponement of further ferrying of the remaining ten Ospreys from a military base in the Iwakuni prefecture where the latest shipment of the Bell-Boeing made aircraft arrived last month.

Comment: Chances are they weren't ready to fly yet anyway so that makes this nothing more than a nice sounding "non-announcement." Chances are also better than good that the rest of the Ospreys will be in Okinawa within a week whether the locals like it or not. The Obama-Nation of Desolation as spoken of by the "profit" Daniel simply doesn't take "no" for an answer! This time it's Ospreys next time it's Predator Drones!
