I really need some help with this one!

Does the United States own or lease the land on Okinawa--either the island itself or Kadena AB--and would it be possible for a US airline to set up operations at Kadena, using it as an intra-Asia hub?
(When I say "use Kadena", I mean only use the runways/taxiways, and build an off-base terminal with a connecting taxiway).

The same goes for Ramstein AFB, Germany, except using it as an intra-Europe/Middle East hub?

Thanks much! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This would not be possible to do in Ramstein. The Air Force Base is on german land and may only be used for military things. If the US Air Force ever leaves it, the airport cannot be used by us airlines unless it becomes a civilian intercontinental airport. For exchangei think the german airforce owns an air force base near denver. Does the same apply also for them?
