Military Review

US State Department spokesman John Kirby unwittingly presented evidence of the continuing occupation of Japan by US troops.

43
The information that was voiced by US State Department spokesman John Kirby is in fact irrefutable proof that Japan is under American occupation. And this is not a figure of speech. Kirby said that Washington and Tokyo reached an "agreement" on the maintenance of US military bases located in Japan. Over the next five years, 8 billions of dollars will be allocated from the state budget of the Land of the Rising Sun for the needs of the American contingent.


Information Agency TASS cites a fragment of a statement by John Kirby:
Financial support from the host country will help preserve the US military presence in Japan.


US State Department spokesman John Kirby unwittingly presented evidence of the continuing occupation of Japan by US troops.


At the same time, the official representative of the US Foreign Ministry added that the US military presence in Japan is "a guarantee of security in the Asia-Pacific region." And this, according to Kirby, fits perfectly into the concept of the United States.

Currently, there are more than 47 thousands of American military personnel in several US military bases in Japan. At the same time, the Pentagon says that the US military "is ready at any moment to respond to aggression against Japan."

Particularly noteworthy is the fact that the Japanese authorities uncompromisingly agreed to continue and even increase funding for the American occupying forces - the Japanese taxpayers are obliged to allocate 1,6 billion dollars annually for these needs.

    Yes, everything is fine - woe to the vanquished. Not only that, American troops occupy the Japanese islands, but the defeated side, as expected, pays for the content of the contingent of occupiers on its territory.

          Japan and Germany are two potentially powerful nations. Which regionally can create a very powerful geopolitical advantage, and create centers of geopolitical influence. States do not leave from there because they know this.

          Especially considering the technological level of these countries. Let these countries go free - Germany will create a powerful geopolitical hub in Europe (pushing the United States overseas), Japan will create a powerful fleet and troops, pushing China and everyone else in this region (pushing the United States to Honolulu).

          Germany, even on a leash in Europe, is a leader.
          Germany and Japan are very powerful states. Which the US forces are holding back.

            Moreover, which is especially interesting, the very countries are restrained whose economic development is directly related to the huge investments in the economies of these countries and, first of all, from the USA itself, by the way, not only in the post-war period (WWII), but also before it, as well as up to 1st MV. Interesting is not it.

            It is said, so it is said! Only "potency" either exists or does not exist. Judging by the situation today, their "potency" does not shake those who "dance" them. And they "dance" not for deTski, if they also pay for the "tavern"!

          What kind of samurai are they? Their grandfathers were samurai, and they were litter for the impudent Yankees. They would have put horseradish on their “northern territories” long ago if the Americans hadn’t set them on fire. It is a shame to contain the invaders and consider yourself war. Yes, at the time of doing hara-kiri.

          These are such shitty samurai today ... But what is characteristic is that they continue to roll out their lust on our Kuril Islands, but what does this mean? Or do they feel the support of the "big brother", or do not consider us their winners? It turns out that they do not consider it, otherwise they would pay for the development of our infrastructure in the "their" Kuril Islands ...

          Do you want the Japanese to make a collective seppuku? From the present kawaii nation, into which the once proud Nihons have degenerated, it is ridiculous to expect such a thing. Apparently, the entire limit of Japanese passionarity was chosen in World War II.
          And Johnny Kirby again amused. If Psaki "consulted in the office", then this one cuts the truth-uterus without any hesitation. No wonder this admiral from the US Navy was fired for stupidity.

              Vladislav, no matter how simple it sounds on my part, but there is always a choice, even among the countries you have listed. All Europe has a choice.

              We also took a sip in the 90s, but still made a choice - in my country my army protects me and I feed it, and if necessary, I’ll take a gun myself!

      Yes, everything is fine - woe to the vanquished.

      And please pay attention to the fact that among Russians there is an opinion that in vain the USSR was among the winners, and not the losers. That would have lost, oh, how great it would have healed. And none of them thinks that it is necessary to plow like “Papa Carlo” in order to live well, and not “plow”! The $ 1,6 billion deal would probably not end. USSR, and Russia is able to pay more! I wonder how much Germany pays for the maintenance of the US occupation forces?
      US military "ready at any time to respond to aggression against Japan"
      They have already demonstrated their readiness during an attempt to land on a sandy beach in Portugal. And it’s not been fired at yet, no one bothered them. Quietly "sat and waited, well, when." During this time they had to be destroyed!

    What did they want, the Japanese? They should be happy that the states favorably allow them to pay money for the maintenance of the American army, the soldiers of which rape Japanese women with impunity and commit murders, hiding under the fact that the treaty on the status of American soldiers in Japan has such a small fad, which states that A US soldier cannot be tried by a Japanese court, much like a diplomatic officer. In the event of a crime, he simply goes to the states. Take a walk - I do not want ... !!!

    Well, Japan is not ashamed! The country, which essentially brutally cracked down on 2 cities of Japan, dropping 2 nuclear bombs, is now the "best" friend for Japan. Or grandmothers completely overshadowed the eyes and brains. In theory, Japan from Russia could receive much more favorable economic ties than with the United States, but an eclipse of reason is a hindrance.

    The Americans are doing great. Not only do they have bases in the territory of another country, so this country also contains these bases. It can be seen from the Japanese in 45 brains completely bent off. They are still under the American heel, and their mouths are thrown to the Russian islands.

    The classic concept of regressors from science fiction novels. Dominion troops restrain the development of colonies at a technological and military level that does not pose a threat to the overlord. From the point of view of the United States - an extremely logical and robust approach. Only now the world from this logic will soon turn blue and go corpse stains.
