Controversial "Patriot Missile"

The Patriot Missile; when these rockets arrived on Okinawa last year there was a lot of controversy of why they are here. No doubt because of the threat from North Korea or China. Because the Okinawan's are a peace loving people, they understand that the presence of Military Bases on their island threatens the safety of their livelihood. These rockets are highly advanced, able to shoot down incoming missiles with extremely high accuracy. It was impressive to see them up close and personal. The other two pictures are Nico and Asa clownin around on the equipment. Double click on the Humvee picture, Nico looks like one serious dude!
