British press: Japan is eager to fight China

64

Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso issued a statement in which he expressed his readiness, together with the United States, to defend Taiwan against "Chinese aggression", since Beijing's ambitions could be dangerous for Japan as well. These words of a high-ranking official can be regarded as a signal of a change in Tokyo's attitude to this problem.

It is reported by the British newspaper The Times.



If until recently in Japan Taiwan was officially considered part of the territory of the PRC, now more and more voices are heard in Tokyo doubting the correctness of the "one China" policy pursued by Beijing.

In the British press, commenting on the situation, they write that today's Japan is eager to fight China.

Japanese militarism has gone ahead!

- writes one of them.

The British press notes that over the past decades Tokyo not only avoided confrontation with Beijing, but also actively cooperated with it in various fields. Now relations between the two countries are deteriorating more and more.

One reason for this is China's increasingly insistent claims against Japan over the Senkaku Archipelago, which Beijing calls the Diaoyu. The islands are under the control of Tokyo, but China considers them to be its own.

Although Japan's so-called "Self-Defense Forces" have been looking very impressive lately, Tokyo's behavior seems somewhat unwise. After all, the Japanese should not forget that the PRC is a nuclear power. And what an atomic bomb is, they know firsthand.

      As long as the Japanese and Chinese can sell something to each other, there can be no talk of war. To begin with, they need to really quarrel, close the tap to the opponent, strangling his business. And, only after that, at least, armed clashes are possible. ...

        It seems like you can't argue with you, BUT this is exactly the position of the skeptics of the beginning of the war in 1914 - they say this will not happen, tk. disadvantageous and mutually beneficial ties give more than war.

          Indeed, the analogy is very similar to the First World War, where the intersection of interests and contradictions has been ripening for decades, since the time of Bismarck. Here is a similar story, the Region is very militarized: China, Taiwan, USA, Japan, Korea, North Korea, Vietnam (and India and other regional states) All have significant armed forces, all have claims to each other both in terms of territory and trade routes. Uncle Sam is not in vain withdrawing troops from the Middle East reorienting to the Pacific region. And there will always be a reason for confrontation. For example, a new one. Prince Ferdinand will play the artificial origin of Covid in the eyes of the United States, for example hi

            The Chinese also remember that after the atomic bombing the Japanese surrendered their country to the Americans and are still doing the will of those who organized the destruction of Japanese cities.

            So, to return the Diaoyu archipelago by force is a real plan. wink


            The Americans will certainly be on the side of Japan and will bravely fight for the archipelago to the last Japanese soldier.

        Recently, in the comments to the article "The West is activating Japan, turning it into a military power," they wrote that this is a fake.
        Quote: Black Lotos
        Most Japanese today are sure that we dropped the atomic bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima

        Who you are? Americans? Then right.
        The fake that "Most believe" was invented by the author of many fakes, secretary of the Security Council of Russia Nikolai Patrushev in an interview with Izvestia.
        the journalist of Komsomolskaya Pravda, who wrote in his LiveJournal back in 2009 that “according to one poll, already a quarter of Hiroshima schoolchildren are sure that the Soviet Union dropped bombs on their city.” A year later, the propaganda site "Enemies of the People" already indicated that half of Japanese schoolchildren believed so.

        the Japanese have it in their textbooks and there is a museum, and they are constantly reminded. The atomic bombs Kid and Fat Man were dropped by the Americans in the course of 2 MB.

          True, it can also be different. In Japan, there are also the Museums of the bombing in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but not every Japanese, not only visited them, but does not even know about them.
          It is widely believed among US historians, and some Japanese, that nuclear strikes were a boon to Japan. They secured the immediate surrender of the Japanese Empire. Also, thanks to the surrender, Japan saved the island of Hokkaido, which otherwise would inevitably have gone to the Soviet Union and the problem of the northern territories could now sound completely different.
          Here there are already two truths, who benefits or needs which one.
          But the third truth that the USSR dropped the atomic bombs is not a fake. I wrote this fake that "they teach in schools", they do not teach in schools, but in the Japanese media and on the Internet, it appears all the time, and people believe, especially young people. As one young Japanese man told me (not about the bombing) "We have no reason not to trust the Americans, they did a lot for us."

But the facts are on the face: in income, in life expectancy, in education (their universities are better than ours) in the preservation of culture and the past (where children will be taught from school to the traditions of their society, from costumes to history), we are very lagging behind.

      Rather, Japan itself is not so torn .. Rather, the United States forced Japan to rush to China.

      The fact is that 90 years ago, China was almost in the Stone Age, and then Japan could not capture it all. And now China is powerful.

      American and British warmongers managed to squeeze out of the Japanese Deputy Prime Minister a statement that the Japanese, of course, together with the United States .... against China.
      And it will be very great if we manage to make war with the hands of the Japanese with China.

      The influence and power of China has grown dramatically, and at the same time, there is a decline in Japan's economic position. South Korea's economy ranked 11th in the world.
      Ie Japan understands that they are no longer the leaders in the region, and this causes the growth of nationalism.

    There is a very tricky game going on here (around Taiwan and China). No one, neither Japan nor the United States, will directly participate in the battles. The main thing is to set the two parts of China against each other so that they themselves destroy each other. The United States understands that China and Taiwan will be united, there will be a superpower dictating its own rules of the game in Asia and in the world. The same situation in the confrontation between Russia and Ukraine, and the Baltic states, by the way, which is now the backyard of Europe (Western) and the battlefield of a future war (God forbid) was a showcase of the USSR.

    Well, China has nuclear weapons, then what? Japan is an ally of the United States, China then the whole world will skid out of principle. Our logic is not healthy: a little something - nuclear weapons
    China, too, should not forget whose technologies it impudently copies and who allows it to be a global factory. And just in general, China is still a problem, so they will still throw forces to contain it, and we, including, until he himself has not bent everyone into a pose of submission

    Japan stupidly does not have soldiers for a large-scale confrontation. It got to the point that women are already becoming captains of ships. Their population is not small, but the conscription of the required age is very limited, and primarily at the level of psychology.
