Consequences of Japanese Attempt at Possessing Capability for Pre-emptive Strike

Japanese government recently convened a meeting of the intellectuals and adopted a report on radical enhancement of its defense capability.

The report which enumerated the grounds for Japan’s preparedness against the severe security environment carried the following: Japan should possess the “counterattack capability” including the development of long-range missiles; efforts should be directed at training of talents and strengthening of the base of its defense industry to establish, in the long run, a comprehensive system capable of war within five years; and the relevant expenses should be covered by the entire citizens by way of widening the tax margins.

Japan is now accelerating the completion of institutional mechanism aimed at pre-emptive strike on other countries. On the other hand, it is hell-bent on developing and purchasing long-range missiles and other missiles of various kinds, and arms and equipment for pre-emptive strike such as the latest submarine and stealth fighter.

When the contents of the above-mentioned report, i.e. astronomical increase in the military expenditure, possession of “counterattack capability” and the like are officially stipulated in the three documents about defense strategy including the “National Security Strategy” which are scheduled to be revised this year, Japan will be equipped with the legal foothold for pre-emptive strike at any given time against any country.

Now that Japan has completely rid itself of the mask of “total defense”, its possession of “counterattack capability” is in essence synonymous with the possession of pre-emptive strike capability.

Enhancing its capabilities for strike operation on land, in the air and sea under the signboard of “self-defense” and extending its firing range to cover the neighboring countries, Japan is now pursuing its wild ambition for mainland reinvasion by means of pre-emptive strike on them.

Excessive self-confidence and greed inevitably entail a huge disaster.

Should Japan attempt to possess pre-emptive strike capability incurring military tension in the region, such an act will only result in the security crisis of its islands, putting its citizens in jeopardy.
