Japan has trouble recruiting youth for the Self-Defense Forces

The Japanese government decided to increase the number of military personnel of the country's naval self-defense forces in connection with the need to staff the crews of new warships. However, as the Nikkei newspaper writes, this will take a lot of effort, since the Japanese youth do not want to serve.


According to the newspaper, Japan intends to commission two new ships with the American missile defense system Aegis within five years. One ship requires a crew of about 300 people, for the efficient functioning of two ships, it is necessary to find 600 new officers and sailors, but even this becomes a rather difficult task. The point is that Japanese youth are practically unwilling to serve.

According to the Japanese Ministry of Defense, in 2019 only 86 people were recruited into the Self-Defense Forces, and then only by increasing the maximum age of service from 26 to 32 years. The Japanese have a rather negative attitude towards military service, and even worse towards the sea. This is due to long trips, being on ships among the same people, and most importantly, the lack of constant access to a mobile phone and the Internet.

Earlier it was reported that Japan refused to place two Aegis Ashore ground complexes on its territory, proposing to replace them with ships with an American missile defense system. The new ships will be included in the country's air defense system.

      Yeah, they will. Only: "The Tree of Liberty requires constant washing in the blood of patriots." In the Roman Empire, citizens also did not want to serve. So where is that empire?

        No more Warriors in Japan, the Bushido Code is a thing of the past! A country under occupation can only be Silent! They will take away the Mattress Bases - you can talk, otherwise - there is simply no one with whom. The question of the Kuril Islands, decided among other Heroes - My GRANDFATHER!

          And what documents do you need if barbarians became emperors? It is as if a Kirghiz replaced Putin as president.

              And since what century did the Roman army become barbaric? Or the barbarian emperor was seated on the throne by the Romans?

    This trend is all over the world! The more prosperity the population has, the more difficult it is to draft the citizens of this country for military service, and the birth rate in such countries is low.

      and the birth rate in such countries is low.
      Their birth rate is more or less in order, the Japanese simply do not want to make a trash heap out of the country, they do not recruit emigrants, it is very difficult to obtain Japanese citizenship, for 99,9% it is not possible, and they need their own everywhere, not only in the Armed Forces, but in civilian life.

    and most importantly, the lack of constant access to a mobile phone and the Internet.

    The global military threat will not be defeated by anti-war marches and anti-war organizations, but by a mobile phone and the Internet. laughing

    Contact Kim Jong-un, who does not have such problems and he will gladly help you turn the Japanese self-defense forces into the DPRK army. Well, but seriously, it is necessary to educate young people from early childhood and instill love for the Motherland, not American bases, and allowing any whim from childhood.

    The point is that Japanese youth are practically unwilling to serve.
    it is clear that the higher the income level of the population, the fewer people who want to enroll as soldiers, and if in other countries, for example, in the USA, this problem is partially solved at the expense of emigrants, then in Japan there is a completely different emigration policy
