Japan plans to approve a record military spending budget

40
The state, which is among the world leaders in terms of public debt, decides to bring the military spending to a record. We are talking about Japan, whose authorities are going to Thursday (24 December) to approve the expenditure side of the budget, which provides for a record spending on the defense industry since the end of World War II.


TASS with reference to Japanese sources, reports that the official Tokyo plans to spend more than 5 trillion yen for military purposes next year (that's about 41,2 billion dollars). Such expenses are planned to be approved for the first time since 1945!

Japan plans to approve a record military spending budget


Spending on the military industry in Japan has increased over the past four years. At the same time, Japanese parliamentarians declare the need to oppose the expansion of the zone of influence of China in East and Southeast Asia.

In addition, in Tokyo, for the first time since 1999, they plan to allocate funds to increase the level of Japanese influence outside the country. First of all, we are talking about, of course, the Asia-Pacific region.

There is no reason to believe that the draft of such a budget will be rejected. The fact is that in the current parliament of the rising sun, the ruling coalition, which is the author of the draft budget, has a majority.

    Some of the Ottoman Empire want to return others to the Japanese ... In the process, the memory of the Kwantung Army was completely erased ... It's time to refresh. It’s necessary to throw a little idea to Mr. X. wink

        The current state of the economy and "personalities" profiting from the degradation of the Russian people in Russia evoke thoughts of Tsushima and Port Arthur, especially with such a mediocre, thieving leadership. But not as about Khasan, Khalkhin-Gol and the defeat of the Kwantung army, which washed away the stain of shame from the Motherland.

        The Japanese are not jackals. Anyone, but not jackals. They are good soldiers, they fought excellently. They were always distinguished by excellent training and stamina. Unfortunately, unfortunately, they shamefully behaved towards prisoners and civilians.

    In fact, Japan has been in occupation by the Amers since the 45th year, and if they want to make such a decision, apparently someone is "inflating the sails" for them, as well as the Turks.

    Island states should be especially careful in raising their military budget. It will be more rational to deal with the issues of expanding its own territories or renting them from polite neighbors. And then, after all, how is it? We increased the military budget, went to bed with a clear conscience ... and in the morning we woke up, - around ordinary sea water ... request

    to each his own, the next tsunami and there is no island called Japan. the whole will crumble into the Mariana trench. they would have lived peacefully, after having expelled from their territory the “dearly beloved OCCUPIERS-friends“. and did not open their mouth to foreign territories.

    Well, this is about 2,7 -2,8% of the total state. budget of Japan and about 1% of GDP, in Russia about 20% and about 4,5%, respectively. For a country having territorial disputes with 2 main big neighbors, this is more than modest ...

    Japan is so fussing with the war budget for the aftermath that they are looking at each other very sideways with China. Yes, in addition, if I’m not mistaken, we still didn’t end with the 2nd World War with them.

    The money was not allocated for the purchase of musical instruments by an indicative military band. We have no peace treaty with Japan, so this information as a whole can be regarded as negative.

    For some reason, the author spoke about the Japanese public debt, although as far as I know, neither personally, but Russia as a whole, Japan should not owe money. But for some reason I forgot to point out that Japan is also the 3rd world economy, and only 40 billion for defense. Won 1 economy China spends more than 200, and the second USA and nothing at all for 600 scales. Even 10, the Russian economy spends more than 80 billion on defense. The main public debt to repay, I would like to hear the names of those who should Japan. To know the heroes so to speak.

      Yes, this "national debt" could have been formed when they wrote out loans to themselves, or stimulated the economy by injecting billions, this does not say anything about financial solvency.

    The world is on the verge of a big war, everyone is preparing, it seems that a big geopolitical redistribution is being prepared.

    The world on the brink of war is already constantly, in principle, and after the Second World War, the world has always been and is on the brink of a new war, in the sense of a global (world) war, and so regional wars are constantly waged on the planet. But there is truth in the fact that over the past 2-3 years the situation in the world has really heated up to a world-scale war ... My opinion is that it is very beneficial for someone, and maybe it is necessary to regulate the population of the planet .. But they just want to "adjust" constantly for some reason in Russia it is a war (in some countries of Africa, Asia, for the most part, people themselves are dying - from disease, hunger, etc., although in Russia there are also such cases, but I am together). Why not "readjust" the population in countries such as China, Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, USA, Turkey, the countries of the Middle East, Australia, Canada (I mean that there are a lot of bad people in all these countries), about Europe I am silent - and so soon it will bend itself from its tolerance. I'm not saying that the Russians should be left alone, but because of the great losses from wars throughout history, I am confident that we have leadership, not because we are fighting badly (this is of course absurd), but because we are fighting our entire history (i.e. we do not have time replenish the population, and if we approach the growth of the population, then all the march on us again). We are not loved for the fact that there are many resources in our country, like we have to share ... The world is cruel, you cannot be kind to everyone. By pacifying the enemies you will not achieve anything, you will only delay. It could end badly for Russia. Previously, in any Russia (Russian Empire, USSR), rulers did not tolerate such humiliation at the highest level. And now, according to the type - hit on the right cheek, substitute the left ... And only words, words, words, threats, words, words ... And as a result, nothing comes out either inside the country or outside. Inside, in general, fuck, the economy is in "F", the people after the "hangover" after the New Year holidays, oh ** eh, what will happen in 2016. God grant me to be wrong ...
