Japan’s Military Muscle Buildup Scolded

Date: 31/03/2020 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

Shortly ago, the Japan Maritime "Self-Defence Force" (MSDF) put into commission its new Aegis destroyer Maya.

Japanese Defence Minister Kono said at the vessel-launching ceremony that the launch of the 7th Aegis ships would "improve the air defence capability of Japan", talking about the "increase of military threats from the DPRK and China".

The military buildup of the MSDF being pushed ahead under the pretext of threat from others is nothing but a reckless act of the militarists hell-bent on realizing their wild ambition for a military giant.

As well-known, the newly-launched destroyer is the first one equipped with the new system of the Cooperative Engagement Capability (CEC) for exchange of information between other destroyers, early warning aircrafts, etc. of the "Self-Defence Forces" (SDF).

In case the radar of the destroyer fails to pick up a rocket or a plane of the opposite side, the destroyer can immediately receive relevant data from the US forces. It also carries the Standard Missile-3 Block IIA interceptor jointly developed by Japan and the US.

The Japanese media reported that the MSDF plans to build more vessels equipped with the said system by next year, and thirteen early warning aircrafts to be bought from the US in the future would also be equipped with the system.

It means that Japan, which is banned from having the right of belligerency, the right to participate in a war and the right to have a regular army, became possible to share information with the US forces on the ground and in the air and sea in real time and carry out any military operations as it wishes.

Herein lies the danger and gravity of Japan's moves for modernization of the SDF threatening peace and security of the Korean peninsula and the region.

Still now, Japan is working hard to boost the SDF's capability of fighting an actual war and open a road of reinvasion, availing itself of the US policy for domination.

It has openly revealed the hostility towards its neighbouring countries and its territorial ambition while ceaselessly staging joint military exercises with the US on the ground and in the air and sea of the archipelago from the beginning of this year.

ITAR-Tass disclosed the sinister intention of Japan, saying that the deployment of the Aegis vessel equipped with the new information exchange system is a link in the chain of the US missile shield system in the Far Eastern region.

Shortly ago, Japan launched a "submarine-hunter" capable of tracking down and identifying even a sub hundreds of kilometres away to let it join the MSDF.

Arms buildup of the SDF and remarks that the main target of Japan is China and the DPRK being openly heard from the insular country go to prove that the wild ambition of the war criminal state to repeat the past history of aggression with the backing of its master remains unchanged.

The Japanese reactionaries should clearly understand that their reckless militarist hysteria is the root cause that brings only disaster and misfortune to their country.
