Japan explained why it sent a destroyer to the Middle East


The destroyer "Takanami" of the naval forces of Japan on Sunday was sent to the Gulf of Oman.


According to the representative of the Self-Defense Forces of Japan, this was done to protect the tankers involved in the delivery of oil to the Land of the Rising Sun. This was reported by Kyodo news agency from Tokyo.

A warship with 200 crew members departed from the port of Yokosuka to join the two Japanese Lockheed P-3 Orion patrol aircraft, which had already begun to carry out the tasks assigned to them a little earlier. They flew from the air base in Okinawa on January 11th.

Currently, about 90 percent of all oil purchased by Japan passes through the Gulf of Oman.

The military is allowed to use force only in the event of a direct threat to the Japanese courts. They will operate in the Gulf of Oman, the Strait of Bab el-Mandeb and the northern part of the Arabian Sea. The Japanese will not patrol the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz, so as not to overshadow "historically friendly relations with Iran."

For the protection of Japanese tankers in the Middle East, the country's budget for 2020 includes 4,7 billion yen, which is equivalent to 43 million dollars. The operation will be attended by 260 Japanese self-defense forces. It is designed for a year, but can be extended.

      Everything is more fun there.
      Given:
      1) The Japanese Self-Defense Forces under the post-war treaty are allowed to be used only in Japan.
      2) To protect the interests of Japan around the islands - in theory, the United States works, because there are their bases.
      3) The price tag for item 2 Trump raised from 2 to 8 lard per year, not to mention the fact that the US base is already tired of everyone.
      Question:
      But is it time to rewrite one inconvenient article in the Constitution, and at the same time save money? Yes, and ask the Americans for a walk. Reasons - but, you see, we desperately need to guard tankers outside of Japan?

      Of course, the Strait of Oman (gulf, loading and ebb tide) ... exactly near the Kuril Islands is diminished. We will not smack nonsense and it will not scream wildly.

        Not everything is so simple in this corrupt world .... The Japanese were allowed the United States, not just like that .. In general, they are there illegally ..
        It is necessary to connect China, that they click there?

        The United States draws them into the fight against Russia ..
        The Japanese cannot forgive the USSR, defeated by the Kavtun group in two months .. And our marines captured the island beyond the island of our 3000 against 9000 Japanese, with all their pillboxes Fought them like boys .. And they were about to land on Hokaido, but the Japanese were from the USA requested surrender .. This saved them!
        We, too, were tired of fighting, although then Korea began and our Li Xi Tses showed "Kuzkin's mother" there .. This is how we live in our history .. And what else to do? soldier

      The head of the Japanese Self-Defense Forces took the Bushido code from under the bed, brushed off the dust and proudly lifted his face in the direction of the rising sun, read aloud - The real courage is to live when you need to live, and die when you need to die ... .After this, he bowed low at the feet of an American petty official and asked permission to leave the destroyer from the port ... laughing

        Really funny .. how the code and culture of the samurai can allow people to be subjugated .. according to their own tradition, they must make hara-kiri .. but instead of hara-kiri, the Japanese are trying to raise their heads from under the owner’s boot ..

    And how much in the end the Japanese cost a ton of oil, and I wonder how much a ton of oil costs for us, the producing country. Is it not here that the dog rummaged, why we have such an expensive energy industry, the basis of any production, that there is plenty of money for bosses, and for hard workers and the rest of the population "there is no money, but you hold on." fellow request

    Yeah, when the Japs were cut off from oil supplies in 1941, they bombed Pearl Harbor!
    Now in Oman blow on the water.

    And is it all a breeze to you that you were all upset that the Yapi sent a destroyer in defense of your interests? Why is there such a love for this strait which, UNEXPECTED, ended up in the zone of the Kuril interests? And all such cool experts in terms of interpreting the Japanese constitution on the exhaust ... Why did you start to sausage, flatten and stare? It seems to me alone that a psychosis has already begun on the resource - whoever where and what would not do ... they definitely want to spoil us (they can't even sleep apparently). Read what you write ... those who are just kidding of this is the most sorry wassat

    to two Japanese patrol aircraft Lockheed P-3 Orion, which a little earlier had already begun to carry out the tasks assigned to them
    I wonder who provided the airfield for these aircraft, Americans with bases in this region? The stated purpose of the presence of the Japanese destroyer is clear - the protection of tankers is a sacred matter. But is it just that? Nevertheless, some ostentatious solidarity with the United States in confrontation with Iran is visible.

    Writer, does he actually speak Russian or not? Or squeeze the bounds of their article, not being able to arrange the words in the right order? Apparently, he studied as Vovka in the far-away kingdom, adding cows to horses and dividing the diggers.
    A good company is flying Orions with a destroyer at the head.

    I will do it with pleasure. Having looked for these things in the textbook, he relied on the memory, and, apparently, in vain. Still, it was necessary to delve into not in the memory and not in the textbooks, but in the library of cartoons.

    Uncle Sam ordered - we are fulfilling.
    And how to disobey? After all, it was against us, for the first time in the world, that he tested the atomic bomb that killed us - all our samurai "show-offs". We have forgiven everything. Now we are not samurai, but the geisha of our master.
