Japan Rushes Headlong into Overseas Expansion

Date: 02/12/2019 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

Japan is still unabated in its military moves, disturbing the regional situation.

Shortly ago, the Ministry of Defence announced that a joint actual manoeuvre of the US marines and the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force would be staged in Shigoku in December for the first time. It was reported that four US Ospreys would be involved in the manoeuvre.

This is a clear manifestation of the military ambition of Japan getting frantic in its moves to become a military giant and launch an overseas expansion with the backing of its master as it is part of its attempt to make the SDF take part in an actual war without fail.

The current SDF which has turned into perfect armed forces with attack capability is very busy acquiring the capability for fighting a war, steadily expanding the sphere of its military operations and familiarizing itself with overseas expansion.

What draws attention is that Japan is working hard to make the SDF acquire the capability for fighting a war under the pretext of "military alliance" and "cooperation for defence".

The SDF started the US-Japan joint military exercises this year with an airlift drill simulating the defence of remote islands with a US special unit. In collusion with its master, it continuously conducted military exercises akin to an actual war such as an actual manoeuvre between the "amphibious task force" and the US marines and a joint exercise between fighters of the Japan Air SDF and a B-52 of the US Air Force.

In May, warships of the Japan Maritime SDF staged a joint drill with France, Australia and the US in the Indian Ocean for the first time and hung around the waters off the Pacific for a long time for maritime joint exercises with littoral countries.

In this context, the Japanese political circles are boosting the moves for laying a springboard favourable for military advance into other countries while approving the conclusion of agreements on mutual provision of goods and manpower between the SDF and the French and Canadian armies and examining the conclusion of the "agreement on the status of visiting unit" between the SDF and the British army.

That's why the acts of the Japanese government pressing ahead with the dispatch of the SDF to the Middle East under the pretence of the aggravated Middle East situation cannot be construed only from the viewpoint of "information collection" and "assurance of marine security".

The horrible records of the SDF steadily enlarging the radius of its military operations throw doubts as to where the Japanese armed forces terminate their bid to acquire the capability for fighting a war.

The largest defense costs in the history of Japan, armed forces with attack capability beyond the principle of "exclusive defense", military advance into other countries and other moves show that every military action of Japan is oriented to an actual war and reinvasion.

This year Japan saw the end of the era of "Heisei" and greets the era of "Reiwa".

Much water has flown under the bridge and the unique name of years changed, but Japan remains unchanged in its militaristic ambition for becoming a war-capable state, free from all historical, legal and moral restraints at home and abroad.

The international community follows with great concern which way Japan will take in the era of "Reiwa".
