This paper attempts to provide reasons for maintaining U.S. forces in Northeast Asia. It describes the current situation in Northeast Asia with the nuclear proliferation issue with North Korea, the ideological differences with China, and the economic problems with Japan. It seeks to define the United States national interests in the area to include 1 favorable world order, promotion of values, and economic well-being. The paper then argues that the real reason U.S. forces are needed in the region is to provide stability in order to ensure access to important markets for U.S. businesses. With Asia being the number one market for the U.S., it behooves us to examine our commitment to the region in terms of return on investment. It then provides some solutions in dealing with the countries in the region to further U.S. interests and to provide the basis for future development.
