According to a sociological survey, Japanese citizens believe that the military threat to their country can come from the DPRK, China, Russia and the United States, reports TASS.




The survey was conducted by the Yomiuri newspaper and the Gallup sociological service in Japan and the United States.

Answering the question “which country or region may pose a military threat to Japan,” 83% of respondents pointed to the DPRK, 67% referred to China, and 50% referred to Russia. In the fourth place were the United States, gaining 31% of votes. South Korea, which 30% of respondents noted, is not much behind them.

As for the Americans who answered the same questions, they, like the Japanese, ranked DPRK (82%) first in the degree of threat, but China was only in fourth place (51%). The second line of the list was taken by the countries of the Middle East (63% versus 29% from the Japanese), and the third line was taken by Russia (55%). With regard to Japan, as well as South Korea, who share the sixth place, 21% of respondents in the United States have concerns.

Most of the questions are devoted to the situation on the Korean Peninsula. 87% of Japanese and 85% of Americans are experiencing a threat precisely in connection with nuclear tests and missile launches. However, among the people of Japan, there are more of those who feel this threat “strongly” and not “to some extent”.

When asked what measures the world community should take to stop nuclear tests and missile launches in the DPRK, 52% of the Japanese chose pressure, and 40% chose the dialogue. In the US, these figures were 56% and 37%, respectively.

        But there were sensible Japanese who called the United States among the threats! Remembering a nuclear dump or knowing a story.

                  It seems that in Japan and the United States there are still "partisans" continuing the war with each other

                        Well, when to wait for a statement about Russian hackers who faked the results?
                        However, I am surprised that the result of such a poll was announced.

                        As you know - the more mechanisms are involved, the higher the likelihood that a failure will occur and all carefully hidden shit will flood.

          Yes, Alexander there are sensible people in any country in the world and in Japan, too, but unfortunately they are becoming less and less, so many young and not so Japanese people believe that the USSR bombed them with an atom. request hi

          Yes, but they are in the vast minority. The bulk of the Japanese, as elsewhere, are dominated by omnipotent Western propaganda. Which actually showed a survey.

    And are we a threat to the Japanese? Perhaps the Americans taught them this, which they themselves are afraid of. Many Japanese people somehow believe that we bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki! Is this somehow related to the Kuril Islands?

        If you watched Prokopenko at least once, then in each program he says separately that they do not claim to be the truth, but simply express a different opinion, which may be the same, sometimes even idiotic. In a word they make fun, and at times they even "brazenly laugh." But if you perceive everything at face value, then I'm sorry, see "Discovery", and even better, "Air Force", here everything is certainly true there, no doubt. lol

    DPRK, China, Russia and the USA
    With the first three countries it is understandable especially since they are close to Japan. The Japanese occupied Korea and China at one time and brought them so much grief that many more generations of Koreans and Chinese will remember this. Russia beat the Japanese in the 2nd MV (mil. The Kwantung Army is entirely our merit). But about the United States obviously expressed the older generation of the Japanese.

      Not certainly in that way. They consider a threat to all those countries that are theoretically capable of preventing Japan from taking revenge for losing the Second World War and again colonizing all of Southeast Asia and the surrounding territories.
