Sohu: Japan near the US has created a powerful army with the current ban


The Chinese edition of Sohu published an article in its military section stating that the United States has been "too trusting of Japan for over 70 years." The author of the article says that after the end of World War II, Japan steadily increased its military potential, creating a powerful army and navy, almost at hand near the United States, despite the fact that it is forbidden to have its own full-fledged armed forces in Tokyo.


The Chinese publication says that for Japan there is a ban on the existence of its own army de jure, but at the same time it has such a de facto. And this army is one of the most powerful in the Asia-Pacific region.

From the material:

In the event of a military conflict, Japan can easily arm about 5 million people. She has a modern weapons and military equipment.

Sohu noted that Japan is by no means an ally, but an adversary of the United States, but Washington is forgetting about it.

From the article:

We must not forget about Japanese ambitions, from which the Americans themselves at one time inherited.

It is recalled that Japan has an aircraft carrier fleet, modern warships, it continues to purchase American F-35 fighters.

From the article:

More importantly, Japan refused to sign an agreement banning the use of nuclear weapons: as the only country in storieswhich suffered from a nuclear strike, it still intends to develop nuclear weapons, which also proves that Japan’s ambitions have never faded. Japan relies on abundant nuclear energy technology and has a large amount of nuclear material. If they are enriched, then most likely nuclear weapons will be created.

    The United States has been “too trusting of Japan for over 70 years”
    Come on, gullible. They simply pretended not to notice anything. They are just armed Japan in the allies - very much at hand (and the fact that politically dzhapy are still under amers is hardly worth doubting). It’s like the Angles in the 45th, when they were in no hurry to disarm the surrendered German units, counting on a very quick war with the USSR.

      I agree. This is the direct connivance of the Americans!

      The Japanese army is created to confront Russia and China.

      The states are far beyond the ocean. And we are near.

        Do not forget that Japan is a country occupied by the United States.
        On the territory of Japan there are large US military bases - these are military and civilian facilities (military bases, warehouses and other objects of the US military and civilian infrastructure) that are not controlled by the jurisdiction of Japan.
        The legal base for American military bases in Japan is the US-Japan Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security, signed in 1960.

        In this case, the current generation of ordinary Japanese It was surprised that for these US bases in Japan, the United States does not pay rent to Japan, but rather - Japan pays for their stay in Japan, Washington!
        And while the Japanese believe what is most likely these are US military bases in Japan needed by the USA itself, since these bases they solve the strategic tasks of the USA against the Russian Federation and China, and after that they defend Japan.

        With all this, it is not surprising that the military power of the Japanese Armed Forces is growing - i.e. pro-American proxy countries in the Pacific region - with the connivance of the United States and with the escalation of nationalist-territorial claims of Japan itself to Russia.

        This is not the connivance of the Americans, it is with their permission, and probably with their money and from their technology, Japan has created its most powerful Self-Defense Forces in the region!
        And they were created not just like that, but really:

And the islands demand on command from across the ocean. These islands to the Americans here are a kind of Pacific "Crimea"! Because of the fuss lately here!

        Yes, no matter who they set him on, Japan has one most important vulnerability, it is a huge population density and infrastructure. A couple of massive hits and the damage will be colossal. Unlike the vast expanses of Russia, where everything is so scattered that sometimes they themselves can’t find it. (joke). In addition, there is nearby, there is one huge power that Japan does not like so much that it can not eat. At times exceeding the army and navy.

By the way, this wasn’t the only episode, it’s just the most famous one, in fact, Japan did so many things in China in the Second World War that Adolf quietly envies in the grave, it’s just that Adolf Alloysych indulged in Europe, and these are some Chinese, a million less, a million more ....

          Napoleon in the year 12 on drugs exceeded our army many times - and how did it end?
          The point is not the size of the armed forces, but their correspondence to the existing moment: weapons modern, personnel - trained, command staff educated, and history must abound in victories - without this, no army can win.
          So China has a very big strain just with the history of conquests, victories and defeats - well, this is not an imperial nation!

            Is Japan big? The whole history of their conquests ended in defeat in the Pacific Ocean, in Manchuria and the signing of a humiliating surrender. About the South Kuril Islands, are still whining, "conquerors". I agree, the Japanese were the winners, until they got in touch with the really cool guys, from whom they robbed the Lyuli. In your opinion, can this be called a "victorious army"? Though imperial, at least some. They are locked up on their islands, without resources and quietly nostalgic for the "great empire"

      Japan cannot be seen today as a potential adversary to the United States. Their economies are highly interconnected. In addition, the United States perfectly controls Japan’s militarization and skillfully uses it to increase pressure on China and Russia. repeat

      Well, let's disarm, they disarm them all the same ... they did not disband them! That is yes. And for quite some time they kept almost divisions in the camps in full force under the command of officers. The weapons were stored nearby ... This is Britain ... I did not have to wait for an even game from them ...

    In the Japanese constitution, there was a ban on the actions of self-defense forces abroad which they successfully overcame in 2016. The army in Japan was not banned. And what to call it an army or self-defense forces is not so important.

          Do you think there will be a third revolution? In the first two, China was nothing and no way to call. Now China is the world's first economy with nuclear weapons and a powerful army. Moreover, for China, it is easier to survive through the head on the head than with Japan.

    Japan today is no longer a self-defense force, but one of the strongest armies in the world. In the event of a global conflict, this country will by no means be on the side of Russia. Therefore, we need to take into account its combat potential and have sufficient strength to repulse it. Japan was against us in 1905, during the Civil War, during World War II. And today she does not sign a peace treaty with us. Her position on Russia is frank. I think that it is quite clear that its Armed Forces are aimed today not only at our Kuril Islands, but also at other native Russian lands. hi

    China did not participate (due to US obstacles) in the signing of the 1951 San Francisco Peace Treaty with Japan, therefore, it has the right to start military operations with Japan at any time.

    The USSR refused to participate in the treaty because of the US refusal to include confirmation of the sovereignty of the USSR over South Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands in the text, despite the corresponding decision of the Potsdam Conference of the Heads of the Anti-Hitler Coalition. The treaty included only a reference to Japan's abandonment of these territories.

In Japan, the Yankees cult once, it is enough to block the export of electronics and cars to the states and the Japanese will give up, well, and where they have ambitions.

It’s not for you to destroy the Indians, and not to drive the Negroes into slavery by millions. For the Japanese, the worst is losing face , and they never forget or forgive. You can sooooooo much talk about what Japan is, how these aliens brought to our planet ... One thing is clear, the samurai will be the grave diggers of the USA! Banzai.
