Chinese media: Japanese military come to the Middle East


The Japanese government is working on a plan to send units of the Naval Self-Defense Forces to the Middle East to collect intelligence, reports China Military portal close to the PLA. The plans also include a trip of a number of high-ranking officers to the location of the 5th command fleet USA in the territory of Bahrain.


The Middle East has always been a problem for Tokyo, the publication continues, and in recent years it has steadily increased its military presence in the region. Japan is now sending an Aegis destroyer and a P-3C reconnaissance aircraft to collect intelligence.

The sending of the Maritime Self-Defense Forces to the Middle East waters is an important milestone for the current government, aimed at overcoming constitutional restrictions. [...] In the future, as society continues to deviate to the right, Japan will be able to further overcome the limitations of the pacifist Constitution on collective self-defense in a variety of ways

- noted in the text.

If Japan chooses a more aggressive approach to further break the shackles of the pacifist Constitution and expand the scope of foreign operations of the Self-Defense Forces, the Middle East will inevitably become one of the most preferred strategic testing platforms for expanding its influence

- suggests the publication.

    In general, Japanese military doctrine is becoming increasingly aggressive.

          Trump Japanese will also send to Afghanistan, and to Africa - to defend American interests.
          You are at least behind the times! And it’s very significant. There are no American interests. That is, of course, they are, just like any other, including individual ones. But in the matter of geopolitics, the so-called American interests are, first of all, the interests of the Western foundation and ideology. At this particular time, the so-called outside interests, multipolarity simply appeared. The interests of Japan, which is economically, ideologically and politically directly related to the United States, as well as the vast majority of developed countries, are essentially the interests of the United States and vice versa. This is like math. Like twice two. If the United States loses its weight, all developed countries, including Japan, will literally collapse! At least ideologically and economically. Regarding your personal claim to Trump, it is generally quite reasonable. Why are only the United States responsible for common interests ?! At the same time, all the others, at this very time, are simply stuffing their pockets, including personal ones ...

        True, the article forgot to mention the fact that the Japanese support the Iranian plan and all actions are coordinated with it there ... Like the fact that they are separate, they do not support Trump's plan and do not join its coalition ...

        4-5 days ago, at an event held at the residence of the Embassy of Japan, Ambassador Akio Miyajima noted the contribution of Kavaklyoglu to the development of relations between Turkey and Japan, and also said:

        “Turkey and Japan are geographically far apart, but our hearts are close. That is, two states, one nation. ”
        And this lies, "where you can earn a deadline for a page from the Koran," which you write here

      this is only the end of a unipolar world - EVERYONE WILL INDEPENDENTLY CONTROL ITS MARKETS OF SALES AND RAW MATERIALS.
      The United States does not want to do everything for everyone and let the profits past its carmakers go to Japan.
      Americans shared the "white man's burden"

        Everyone talks about it .. Many even dream about it! Some, even clever speeches, talk about it .. But no one has a clue what to do about it and how it will be!
        Although if you delve into the essence of the matter .. Of course, those who promote this idea know very well what they will do with it! Only this has nothing to do with the multipolar world .. In a nutshell, this is a redistribution of spheres of influence. Ideally, the same unipolar world, only under a different direction. That is, there will be no gingerbread.

    The fact that they will change the constitution of Japan, I personally have no doubt! Otherwise, why such an increased construction of the Navy?
    As a result, we get a new Millilitaristic Japan, which isn’t good.

          So who is our goal?

          His fighting ability is being pulled to the level of leading military powers. negative

          Like something bad ...
          If you look at the map, you may notice, but Japan is not a continent ... Japan vitally needs to have a powerful fleet in order to defend itself.


          However, this applies not only to island powers, but also to continental ones.

          Just do not give references to the saying that Japan is our enemy and that’s all.

      But they have actually changed it.
      And in a tricky way: under Shinzo Abe, the Cabinet of Ministers adopted in 2014 a resolution that introduced the concept of "collective self defense". It was allowed to use the Self-Defense Forces not only for the defense of Japan itself, but also abroad, for the defense of other countries with which Japan maintains close ties - not only in the event of an attack on them, but simply in case of threat of attack. In 2015 The right to use the Self-Defense Forces abroad was confirmed by parliament.

      Now, any actions of the IJA and IJN ... oh, of course, the Self-Defense Forces, abroad can be brought under collective self-defense. Without violating the 9th Article of the Constitution.

      However, for the Japanese, a formal circumvention of the agreements is a tradition. It’s enough to recall their “destroyers” with a displacement of 27 tons with a flight deck. smile

    It seems that the Anglo-Saxons are beginning to doubt the allies of the EU and NATO, their unquestioning support in the BV, especially against Iran. They decided to pull up there, trouble-free Japan for them, to help Israel.

    It would be better for the Japanese not to meddle there. They do not have a lot of population, besides aging at a terrible pace. In which case it will be very difficult for the Japanese to recover the losses ... But to drag in the Chinese there is simply necessary. They have just an excess, which should be disposed of as soon as possible.

        Well, in any case, it is more than 10 times less than the damned Chinese. And most importantly - you should also consider the demographic asset - that is, girls aged 18 to 24 - and it is disappearingly small in Japan. Even Russians have more. So in fact, for the good of the whole people, the Japanese should not fight. They are not in that demographic position to allow themselves an unjustified decline.

    Japan should not be untied. Both Russia and China are well aware of this, the Japanese hope for US support and rely not only on their own armed forces, but also on US bases, so Russia just needs to strengthen the Far East, including with the latest weapons and, of course, the Navy.

And when will such a case appear (and why not?), And all these Pearl Harbor, Honolulu and Midway will sound again? Singapore, again ...

    The redistribution and staking out of territories and markets in a multipolar world is inevitable. And then, how does anyone have the strength and strength of eggs to fight for.
