Kyodo: Tokyo is preparing a strategy to strike back at the enemy

According to the Japanese news agency Kyodo, Japan is developing a strategy for responding to an attack on the country by an external enemy. The strategy involves attacking enemy bases.


The draft of the new strategy was discussed yesterday by representatives of the ruling coalition in Japan - the Liberal Democratic Party and the Komeito Party. The strategy, as expected, is based on close cooperation between Tokyo and Washington in striking back.

If Japan is attacked, it will jointly decide with the United States on targets for joint retaliatory strikes, the publication reports, citing the contents of the document.

The new strategy recognizes that Japan today does not have the ability to fully independently respond to a strike from outside. At the same time, the document notes that Tokyo needs to purchase Tomahawk cruise missiles from the United States.

Recall that last month the United States and Japan held joint military exercises. It's no secret that Tokyo considers Beijing and Pyongyang to be the source of the main threat.

After World War II, Japan, like Germany, did not actually have any major armed forces. Its defense is mainly in the hands of the Americans, who have deployed many thousands of occupying contingents on the Japanese islands.

    It would be better if the money was spent on Fukushima. Do they really think that the US will save them? Actually, after the "attack from the outside" there is little left at all.

    Tokyo needs to purchase Tomahawk cruise missiles from the US.

    And what about Tomahawk missiles with a range of up to 300 km? As far as I know, the agreement on the possibility of selling missiles with a range of only up to 300 km. not violated so far.

    Where without the United States, and even when striking back. Who the main enemy is not difficult to guess - China. Therefore, the Americans will be happy to help, but only with advice, intelligence, they will sell weapons, and if anything, the Japanese will have to fight alone with "friendly" verbal support from the West. Or maybe it's easier to try to live in harmony with China and North Korea?

    It is possible that much is only from the memory of past years ... Please correct me if I am mistaken.
    In the Soviet press Kyodo Tsu Sin.
    For Japan, there is a ban on the number of armed forces and on the presence of offensive weapons.
    This is from my school days.
    Forgotten? Have the rules changed?

    "Backlash" is meant for useful idiots. If the war starts, then it will not be necessary to find out who struck back first. Drink first, Fedya!
