According to the newspaper, referring to the Ministry of Defense of Japan, the marines are created to defend the remote islands in the East China Sea, initially its number will be about 2,1 thousand people.

“At first, the Japanese marines in the amount of two regiments will be located on the southwestern island of Kyushu. However, at the beginning of the 2020 of the Marines, it is planned to relocate to Okinawa, the country's southernmost island, which directly faces the East China Sea, ”the publication says.

          Exactly! The Japanese have not forgotten Nanjing! When Japanese samurai in the territories occupied by Japan everything in a row - to the Chinese, Koreans and even Europeans - was cut off from people and the insides of them were picked out alive! In total, Japanese "samurai" killed 500 thousand people in the Nanking massacre!
          Otherwise, where did the descendants of the Japanese have such a “genetic” memory from modern samurai these days ?! How much is funny here? As they say - everything is according to Freud!

      It was a matter of time. The US needs cannon fodder in the region. And the Japanese again want to have a normal army. which is impossible without the approval of the United States. I THINK SOON AGAIN JAPAN WILL START MAKING CHANGES TO THE MILITARY DOCTRINE. Sooner or later, legislation in terms of the use of self-defense forces will radically change. soldier

      Yes bullshit. The Japanese military is preparing revenge in secret conspiracy with the DPRK. Now they will place 2 regiments in Okinawa ... and then on the “green whistle up”, Kim will hit Guam, the samurai in their underpants and bare feet cut yuesemsi in Okinawa and bomb Pearl Harbor, locals encircle bases in the Japanese islands and beat from berdanoks Osprey and F-35 on take-off. Voila!

      From Ukrainka to Tokyo, about 1800 km. In Japan, there is a very dense development and many chemical plants and pharmacological factories. Hit with conventional ammunition for several of them and the floor of Japan will simply please. And this is not considering nuclear power plants.

          What bombing? Our straggles will be shot from their territory, and boats from the Sea of ​​Okhotsk will be added. And the air defense at least somehow comparable with ours they never had.

              It is one thing to attack an alien state that is not conducting hostilities against us, another to reflect direct aggression against our country. Penguins are the first to rush from there as soon as they smell fried. And who is talking about the Strategic Missile Forces ?. Read above carefully.

                You need to read this more carefully and ponder the essence of the matter. The United States really never was interested and they didn’t care who attacked whom. In any case, the United States would defend its ally and blame anyone for all sins, but not itself and its allies. The United States today supports the territorial claims of JAPAN, against CHINA and RUSSIA, and there they are ready for war, they have many destroyers, nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers. If a war begins with Japan, the United States will not hesitate to blame China or the Russian Federation for its beginning and, at a minimum, will assume the responsibility for providing air defense to Japan. Moreover, in Japan and the USA, people are not stupid and at the same time they will try not to fight there against China and the Russian Federation ...

                  Penguins can only promise. Their main task is war by the wrong hands, and no matter how many losses there are, the main thing is not their loss. If there is an option to incur losses, especially in manpower, They dump faster than a squeal and do not give a damn about all allies. And here, if they are interrupted, they run the risk of getting a full-scale war with us with all the consequences.

                    They are not as stupid as you think the combination of agreements with the Russian Federation on the reduction of offensive weapons, which the United States, in fact, do not fulfill, storing and not destroying the warheads of its missiles, with the deployment of missile defense systems, suggests that there the leadership is smarter than the Moscow ... know what they are doing

                      Who, what and how does this, no one really knows. And that in the bins of our homeland hobbled, the same. And the Amer missile defense at this stage is capable of fighting only single launches of the DPRK, and even that is a big question. And as for the mind, they have not demonstrated it in its last 20 years.

    It would be more correct to formulate recreates. The Japanese marines distinguished themselves during World War II for their stamina and courage in Shanghai, at Taraw Atoll, in New Guinea. Which, however, did not help them.

          According to the signature in the first photo - it is not clear who is defending from whom. And yes, the British, the Kuomintang, and the partisans visited Shanghai.
          And - the years of the Second World War in China - 1926-1951.
          According to the photographs I can’t distinguish formidable warriors from suicide bombers on Hassan. Did all of Manzhou Guo's boots belong to the Marine Corps?

    I don’t understand - that everyone was so excited? Japan merely legalizes the actual state of affairs. The same landing ships were in IJN ... sorry, in JMSDF back in the 60s. last century. First it was an American second-hand, then its Miura-type TDKs, and in the late 90s it came to landing helicopter-carrying dock ships of the Osumi type with a total capacity of 14 kt, carrying up to 8 helicopters and up to two DKVP LCAC.

    Well, as I wrote earlier, Washington gave Tokyo the go-ahead to create a full-fledged army and navy, in my opinion the second phase will be the creation of a military-political bloc such as Asian NATO. But cheers patriots live only today to look into the future you do not have enough mind. If I honestly like the way Americans conduct international politics, they can see the result rather than a tricky plan or a multi-path where the result is null.

      There is one problem - as soon as Japan appears in such a "Southeast" bloc, all its members immediately recall the "eight corners under one roof" and the practical methods for implementing this policy. The same South Korea and Japan can be allies only in the face of the DPRK - and not the real DPRK, but its media version edited by CNN and Fox News. smile And even in such an alliance they will look at each other like the IDF at Hezbollah.
      And second, there is already a leader in this region. And he will not tolerate the second there.

        Something in NATO does not recall the Aryan exclusivity of Germany. Well, it’s CNN and Fox News that they show how North Korean missiles will start, the announcer says that nuclear punishment will befall Japan, South Korea and the United States, and S. Korea’s state TV has nothing to do with it. Even in Soviet times, I didn’t hear that on TV we threatened the United States and NATO. You mean China so do not have border graters with all neighbors.

          Probably because in Germany, for example, the prime minister does not regularly visit the “memory of the Reich defenders” temple and does not worship the memory of Goering and Ribbentrop. wink And he does not refuse to make an official apology on behalf of the state for actions during the war years in the occupied territories.

    Nemesis,
    You are very mistaken about bins. For example, you can search for information when in the early 2000s ours replaced part of the missiles with new ones that were in storage. The Westerners had a shock. And in vain roll a barrel on Putin, with it, our armed forces are developing normally.
