Military Review

The Japanese deployed a garrison near the islands claimed by China.

51
Around 200, Japanese troops are stationed on the most western island of the country, Yonaguni, located near the territory, the rights to which are disputed by China, reports TASS.



The duties of the military "include the maintenance of a radar station, designed to control the nearby waters of the East China Sea and the airspace, in addition, the garrison must repel the assault landing and hold out until reinforcements arrive," the report said.

This is the uninhabited Senkaku Islands in 150-km north of Yonaguni, which are controlled by Japan. However, this does not prevent Beijing to lay claim to them. Chinese watchdogs often defiantly enter a zone that Tokyo considers to be its territorial waters.

Japan had no strongholds in this area before. “Now, in addition to Yonaguni, military garrisons are also planned to be deployed on other islands, Miyako and Ishigaki, which are known for their beaches and hotels,” the agency said.

          The Chinese may also have a historical memory, for example, the Nanking massacre of 1937, when the Japanese, having captured Nanking, brutally killed about 200 thousand civilians. And the Chinese, for something, they know how to wait, endure and revenge.

          And how do you imagine it is possible today for the Japanese to "brazenly climb" the Kuril Islands?
          It is one thing to share a rock controversial with the Chinese in the sea, rather than be suicidal and try your hand at "carving up" the Russian Kuriles.

          In the historical context (taking into account that statehood, technology and culture were introduced to the Japanese islands by Korean and Chinese colonists (even today there are Yakuza clans led by descendants of Chinese settlers, many aristocratic Japanese clans have Korean roots), they took an active part in the formation of the Japanese ethnos Korean, Chinese colonists and local indigenous tribes) Japan in relations with Korea and China is the same as the current Ukraine in relations with Russia, the analogy is almost complete: Ukrainian-de-Russified Russian, Japanese-decaritized, partially Korean decorated (about 20 percent) , partly Chinese (10 percent under), partly aboriginal islands ...

        As there is in the old joke about the Chinese: we go to the border in small groups of 2-3 million each. The most interesting - for what period of time is the defense of this garrison designed for 200 people? I'd love to know.

        You may be right, but Japan does not have an army as such, but China does. What do the Japanese hope for? On NATO i.e. in the USA.

        Actually, Japan’s interest is good neighborly relations. From them, and so on, all the neighbors are terrified and experience only historical hatred - everything from Koreans to Chinese and further down the Pacific Ocean. Everyone remembers the atrocities of the Japanese military.

        Namely, the USA encourages and actually pushes Japan into conflict with all neighbors around

        As a result, the Yapis want Russia from the Kuril Islands from China to these Chinese islands, etc.

        One thing is consoling - neither for Russia nor for Eurasia as a whole, the Pacific Ocean will be a "moment of truth" - as it looks like China will bear the main burden of the confrontation with the aggressive US and Japan. China has already determined the role of all of us - the allied reliable rear. But still I think it will not be superfluous. if at least some Pacific Fleet Russia will have there - at least cover its own coast - and not ask the Chinese

        Moreover, moreover! This is the main US strategy of influencing Japan, forcing them to conflict with everyone, not allowing them to establish normal economic relations with countries. Remember, they and the Kuril Islands were not needed at first. Firstly, materials about the occupation of the Kuril Islands appeared in the US press, and only then did the Japanese begin to show rights to them.

        Resources -
        The background to the dispute is known, and we will not touch upon it. Apart from the national pride of the two Asian powers and the ancient mutual hostility of Japan and China, the most reasonable explanation for the dispute will be, as usual, economic. Senkaku is far from Eldorado, but there is something to fight for in the East China Sea. The most affordable and cheapest resource is a fishwhich is abundant there. But this, in every sense, is only a snack. According to the US Energy Information Administration, the East China Sea shelf stores 100-160 billion barrels of oil, which the Chinese and Japanese are forced to buy at distant lands. The PRC's oil and gas reserves in the region will last eighty years, and Japan will be able to heat it with gas for a century. Not far from Senkaku, by the way, there is a promising gas field Chunxiao, which the Chinese, together with Royal Dutch Shell and Unocal, are preparing to develop.
        Back in the waters of the archipelago full of metals. In Tokyo, it was estimated that Japan’s scarcity of Senkaku resources would last 1300 years, manganese for 320 years, and nickel for 100 years. The cost of any raw materials, however, will be higher than usual: offshore production is not cheap, and in the heated atmosphere of diplomatic conflicts, either side will have a lot of problems and unforeseen expenses.

        The East China Sea also hides another interesting and yet little-known resource: in Japan, it is believed that there are gas hydrateswhich have already been nicknamed "flammable ice" and "fuel of the future." The enthusiasm of the media, of course, must be divided by at least two, but a breakthrough comparable to the shale is quite possible. So far, gas hydrates have been of little concern to anyone, but now Japan is interested in them, which is at the forefront of the development of new technology. In trial mode, it is already extracting gas hydrates, and by 2018 it wants to develop know-how for the industrial production of this fuel. The government approved a special plan of action for this, and Senkaku is mentioned in it: the study of the archipelago for gas hydrate deposits is in full swing.

      About a few years ago, the Americans (CIA) convicted the Japanese of conducting secret negotiations with the Chinese (somewhere at the level of deputy ministers), the Japanese excused themselves, supposedly solving issues on the disputed islands, and they had to do it secretly from the USA! Now think about what the Japanese and Chinese could really secretly talk about behind the back of the US?
