Information Agency Interfax citing Japanese media, reports that the Japanese budget for 2017 has a record military expenditure year. Never before has official Tokyo planned to spend more than 46 billion dollars a year on weapons and security issues.


Japan in 2017 will spend a record amount for itself on the military sphere


Attention is drawn to the fact that this is already the fifth increase in the military budget since 2012. It was in 2012 that the Japanese Cabinet was headed by Shinzo Abe, who today declares that he “sees growing threats to the country”.

The Japanese media say that the main opponents in the Tokyo region are China and the DPRK.

It is noted that the growth of the military budget will also affect the service of American military bases operating in Japanese territory. At the same time, there is no exact data on how far the Land of the Rising Sun intends to increase funding for the American occupying forces. This part of the document will not be published and is determined by the "secret".

Official Tokyo, part of the budget intends to spend on the redeployment of the US military base "Futemma" in Okinawa. Today this military base is located in the city of Ginowan. On the eve, the court ruled that the Japanese government and the command of the US military bases in Okinawa must pay a total of about 8,3 million 2,2 compensation to thousands of district residents, who said that the constant noise of American military aircraft that take off and land on the airfield just 200 meters from private houses becomes unbearable.

        The main opponents in the Tokyo region are China and North Korea.

        The Japs killed more than 50 million Chinese during World War II. And now they again see enemies in the Chinese? Fucked up.

          The samurai spirit rises in the minds of most Japanese people, not far off, apparently, the time when Japan will begin to pursue an aggressive revanchist policy towards its neighbors.

          Or maybe 500 million, no?
          And the news, as often happens, is delusional. We calculated the budget at the current rate. By the way, in some year, when the yen was strengthening, there was already a budget of 47,7 billion.

            No, not 500, ten times less. But the Chinese did not like to love the Japs anymore.

        In my opinion, you came closest to the answer.
        With the advent of Trump, the United States can change the concept of its international politics.

        The Japanese want to be ready to defend sovereignty that has fallen on their heads.

        I was really scared already ... But is there nothing that Japan already has three full-fledged Helicopter carriers capable of becoming aircraft carriers as well? ... + one destroyer-helicopter carrier ...

        He compared useful ... The Japanese, in addition to the 7th fleet, have no rivals, Ekadra are balanced and stable in the ocean zone as well ...

    What do we need? Let them arm themselves, all the same, no one will be afraid of them, and territories will not be added.

      Do not underestimate. In 1904 they said that the Japs would throw their hats. And how did it end?

      Dear, Russia is not doing the same thing. After the Second World War, as far as I remember, Japan was banned from creating an army. Japan could have only the police, and some coastal forces - actually also performing the functions of the police, only on the water. And now, what we see, on the pretext .. somewhere, even for a fool, the Japanese first began to give additional functions to their police, and then began to slowly build up their armed forces. Not without the help and approval of America, of course. And apparently not for nothing .. Even if you look at the vantage point, some armies are far from power, and equipping the Japanese police. If the Japanese are so afraid of attacking someone, then what is the American base doing there? Is it not there so that Russia can never establish contact with its eastern neighbor? Isn't she in order to prevent someone from attacking them? The Americans in South Korea, in Hawaii ... wherever you spit in that region - everywhere they swim, everywhere they fly. And now the question is - who wants to attack Japan there? But does Japan want to unleash a new company to return the disputed islands there? Does Japan think that it might lose its territory again because of its aggressive intentions? Or did someone shut their eyes with promises from an American partner? And is this not why Russia decided so many decades later to strengthen its borders on the eastern borders, which was not even mentioned before?
      There are absolutely two different lines of behavior and response to the situation! So do not say that Japan is doing the same thing as Russia or Russia is doing the same thing as Japan)))

      Hassan, actually more likely a victory for the Japanese. There a Japanese company could not bring down a regiment from a high-rise
      Red Army ... The main thing is that the Japanese do not remember 1905. And then their head will go round.

    The Japanese are concerned that their weapons are nowhere to be sold except as the domestic market. And weapons are technology, jobs, and of course money. Therefore, there is a reason to develop your own military industry, and the arms market is now growing and no one will refuse to take a piece of this market. The Pentagon does not like all this, but the tendency is, however, that it is time to become more independent, because the hegemon is now not the same.

    Official Tokyo has never planned to spend more than 46 billion dollars a year on weapons and security issues.


    A very important provision of the Potsdam Declaration was the point that the Japanese authorities are obliged to remove all obstacles to the revival and strengthening of democratic trends among the Japanese people. The declaration proclaimed freedom of speech, religion, thought, and respect for fundamental human rights.

    The declaration indicated that Japan would be allowed to have an industry that would support its economy and exact fair reparations in kind from it, but not the industries that would allow it to arm again for war. The declaration stipulated that the occupation of Japan should be completed as soon as the above objectives were achieved and a peace-minded and responsible government was established in accordance with the freely expressed will of the Japanese people.

    Oboma and his western sixes completed the task set for them - they sharply activated the incomes of the military-industrial complex syndicates and did not allow the economy to fall into depression!

    The Japanese government is waiting for a revenge and it is not for nothing that politicians of the country visit the Yasukuni Shrine. Of course, while they see only China as a rival, it’s not surprising that we are not in the last place.

    This is an alarming sign. The Japanese would not be Japanese if they had so openly demonstrated their military priorities. It is possible that in the great military conflict of the future, Russia, as in WWII, will be the central figure, and the US will be able to redirect China's expansion from the Pacific region to mainland Eurasia. In Central Asia, preconditions have been created for this for several decades. US-PRC rivalry in order to achieve an equal consensus may include not only confrontation, but delimitation of spheres of influence. In this case, the Americans are killed so two birds --- weaken Russia and China, and the power is removed from the blow of the Pacific region, which is so important for them to preserve strategic bezopasnosti.Obezyana looks like tigers fight, just not the fact that it is Chinese.
    In general, a funny picture is emerging --- pumping up of military budgets and legal registration of the status of states from peace-neutral to block-aggressive ones is growing in the world.
