Japan will provide the US military with an entire island under a new air force base

The Japanese government bought the whole island to create a new US military base and deploy its own self-defense forces. It is reported by the Chinese publication South China Morning Post.


The Japanese government spent 16 billion yen (146 million dollars) on the purchase of the uninhabited island of Magashima with an area of ​​8,2 km2, located between the islands of Kyushu and Okinawa. Previously, an island was located on the island, from which during the Second World War Japanese planes took off for the defense of Okinawa.

From a security point of view, it is important to establish full control over the territory in order to practice the technique of landing aircraft on an aircraft carrier, so that we will try to build an object that will be there permanently as early as possible

- said the head of government Yoshihide Suga, commenting on plans to create a new US military base.

According to the publication, in 2011, Japan promised the United States a new base for deploying the Air Force. Because of fears of noise pollution, American planes are not allowed to fly over the main Japanese territory, so planes from the Iwakuni base, located in the center of the country, have to travel 1400 km to Iojima Island for training. The new base on Magesima Island is located only 400 km from Ivakuni.

The publication writes that the island will have an airfield for the US Air Force, as well as infrastructure to deploy its own self-defense forces. In addition, it is planned to move part of the American contingent from Okinawa to Magashima, where "protests against the American presence" are taking place.

          In addition, it is planned to relocate a PART of the American contingent from Okinawa, where "protests against the American presence" are taking place, to Magesima.

          Noteworthy is that it is planned to move to Magesima only US troops contingent from Okinawa.
          Given that American troops never leave anywhere, this transfer of American troops to Magashima can be seen as an expansion of the presence of the US armed forces in Japan, and not vice versa.

              hi
              To transfer KO japam in the current situation (and not only) is a betrayal better than Gorbachev's. IMHO, in general, it is time to stop negotiations with Japan on a "peace treaty", we suggested, they refused, well, they would go to the "macaque". The Japanese need us more than we need them. yes

And these still passionately desire the "northern territories" about which the Japanese nationalists are constantly yelling, and the prime minister knocks his heel on the chest that he will definitely come to an agreement with the Russians.

    The publication writes that the island will have an airfield for the US Air Force, as well as infrastructure to deploy its own self-defense forces. In addition, it is planned to move part of the American contingent from Okinawa to Magashima, where "protests against the American presence" are taking place.
    In general, the conclusion of any treaties with Japan is out of the question.

    In the case of a typhoon, the island is very unreliable. Small area and low from sea level. They would still play the new Fukushima. There are some other goals, a full-fledged airfield in such unsafe conditions - this is nonsense.

    And everyone is crying that they lack territories! Align Fujiyama and free up so much space and you can wash the island with an arc!

    Now it is clear why the Japanese need "northern territories" and then give the United States a base. They'll take a bite.

    Another Japanese move in GO. Let's give the Americans the island of Magesima, so that the Russians don't think that we can give the Americans something for a base in the "Northern Territories" if this return actually happened.
    Japanese robots have been thinking about this step in GO since 2011. The incredible speed of brain processors! The most important thing: no one knows what kind of private development company owns this island, and in general how it was privatized.

    I read somewhere that among Japanese youth there is an opinion that the Russians carried out atomic bombings ...

    But this is the worst thing - bearing in mind the laconic licking of the fifth point of the pokémon

    Well, that’s all, otherwise the Japanese talked about the world to us, etc. ..
    Proud samurai have long been shot by the Yankees ..
    Eun has long understood this and has taken all measures for defense, like China .. One Russia expresses all its concern!

    The Japanese rule the islands as if they were their islands and they always "belonged" ... this is all the influence of the "Jewish", Satanic global sect ... Just i999 or i666 ... years ago, where were your Japanese? or "Chinese"? and from what "test tube" they all turned out ... on our head. They just know that they are acting unfairly, at least remember when they cut the "Russian" Tsarevich, well, this is a completely "different" story ...

    That is, they will not rely on the 1956 declaration anymore?
