Guam - Senator John McCain is in Japan as part of his weeklong trip through Northeast Asia.  According to The Japan Times,  he met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Abe reportedly urged McCain to ensure Washington provides the funding to help cover the long delayed relocation of Marines from Okinawa to Guam. McCain as we have been reporting has been one of them main senators blocking funding for the realignment. During a speech today at the Tokyo American Center McCain said that perhaps the most important priority for U.S. foreign policy is the rebalance toward the Asia Pacific Region. He added the political debates in Washington are not about whether to place greater emphasis on the Asia-Pacific Region, but rather how best to do so. Senator McCain along with Senators Carl Levin and Jim Webb have been part of the effort to block funding for the realignment calling the Department of Defense's plans unworkable, unaffordable and undoable.
