The U.S.-Japan relationship may be the most important bilateral relationship in the world. But the strains of acrimonious trade negotiations and troubles related to U.S. bases in Okinawa have reduced public support on both sides for a strengthened security relationship. So the United States must develop an integrated and coherent strategy toward Japan 1 to encourage the Japanese to assume a more responsible international security position, 2 to discourage Japan from leaving a strong American alliance, and 3 to work with America in providing leadership in the Pacific and, by extension, throughout the world.
