Der US-Rechnungshof (GAO) errechnete laut Stars & Stripes die Kosten für die USA-Truppenstationierungen in Ostasien: „The roughly $8.5 billion spent each year by the Pentagon to house tens of thousands of American troops in Japan and South Korea reaps benefits to the Asia-Pacific region and the U.S. homeland, according to congressional watchdog group. The U.S. military spent approximately $34.3 billion between 2016 and 2019 to station more than 83,000 troops permanently in Japan and South Korea, which paid dividends by maintaining strong alliances with those nations, deterring aggression of potential enemies, and ensuring stability in the broader region, according to a Government Accountability Organization report published Wednesday.” (jW)
