The Japanese reactionaries are persisting in military buildup more desperately, clamouring about "defense vacuum" created by the withdrawal of the plan for deployment of Aegis Ashore.
They plan to lay down an anti-ballistic missile warship and equip it with over 500-km-range missiles by 2022.
This outlines the possession of "capability of attacking enemy base" that has been claimed by Japan after the withdrawal of the Aegis Ashore deployment plan, a dangerous move to prepare itself for a war of aggression against regional peace and stability.
Japan has already turned all its armed forces into offensive ones, free from the boundaries of "exclusive defense", under the signboard of protecting itself from threats posed by neighbouring countries.
Japan is on a par with military powers in capability for long-distance transport of aggression army and in the level of air force, space operation force, missile strike capability, etc.
If missile warships of Japan's Maritime "Self-Defense Force" range over five oceans, to say nothing of its surrounding waters, under the signboard of intercepting enemy missiles, it would come to be a real, grave menace to the world.
Japan can never cover up its sinister intention of aggression, no matter how it plays tricks under the signboard of "self-defensive counterattack capability" and "active self-defensive capability" in a bid to avoid the censure of the international community.
As is well-known, Japan's plan for military buildup obviously aims at creating a favourable condition for its reinvasion of the continent by expanding the attack range of its naval force to strike its neighbouring countries.
Its successive cabinets have made such trigger-happy remarks as "The constitution is not meant to let Japan just wait for self-ruin".
Recently, Japanese politicians said that "Japan should make maritime order-breaking nations pay dear price" and "Japan should possess the capability of checking ballistic missile launch even in its rivals' domains", a clear manifestation of their attempt at preemptive strike.
It is Japan's trite trick to realize step by step its wild ambition for overseas reinvasion by deteriorating regional situation.
Now, the media of different countries say that the possibility of Japan's use of attack weapons aboard special warships cannot be ruled out, thereby posing a serious threat to regional peace and security, adding that Japan's constitution bans its possession of attack weapons but the situation began to change.
The international community is well-advised not to remain indifferent to every military move of Japan, a crafty war criminal state.
