US going to deploy medium-range missiles in Japan

That for which the United States unilaterally withdrew from the Treaty on the Elimination of Short and Medium-Range Missiles, began to be embodied in reality.

According to Japanese media, the United States began to probe opportunities for the deployment of new medium-range missiles in Japan.

Referring to the words of an American military official, Asahi Shimbun reports that a high-ranking US representative arrived in Japan last week to consult with Japanese Foreign Ministry officials and members of the National Security Council. At the same time, the topic of deploying medium-range missiles in Japan is also on the agenda.

If we proceed from the statement of the US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper about the intention to deploy medium-range missiles in the Asia-Pacific region, it is hard to imagine that Washington would not consider the option of deploying these missiles in Japan, which is almost vassally dependent on the United States.

Obviously, the main target of these missiles will be China, which was not a signatory to the DRMSD, but we should not forget that the Far Eastern regions of Russia will also be under attack.

Therefore, Russia now needs to think about what retaliatory measures can be taken if the United States does deploy its missiles in Japan.

    Russia already needs to think about what retaliatory measures can be taken if the United States does deploy its missiles in Japan.

    - what is there to think? The most symmetrical of all the symmetrical responses, both the United States and Japan at once, is to place their missiles precisely on those very ones in the South Kuriles, which the samurai call their "Northern Territories". Yes, and warn them in advance about this that this will happen immediately, if the US INF Treaty is deployed in Japan ... so that they think better ... There, after all, from some places the island of Hokkaido is simply visible with the naked eye, that is, the flight time ... well ... most of all, in short, it will go to the launch itself ...

    If Japan nevertheless agrees to deploy American missiles on its territory, then without any hesitation we must immediately post bases on the Kuril Islands with short- and medium-range missiles, as well as interceptor missiles, and of course, special facilities for electronic intelligence and the latest electronic warfare and suppression tools.

    In general, I turned the Google globe, I recommend it very clearly. yes I drew circles with different radii. recourse I don’t see the point in placing the RMND. A range of 1 to 000 is redundant. Within a radius of 5 km. part of India, Indonesia, all of Alaska. fellow The maximum that will be delivered - "Iskander", 500 km. enough, the entire Hokkaido is in the affected area. Japan and Alaska are easier to get from the coast. From Arsenyev within a radius of 1500 km, the entire samurai empire is included. In addition, the missiles stationed near Japan are vulnerable.
    But in the appearance of rockets in Japan, I have no doubt they will appear soon. It turns out painfully convenient. From Hokkaido from Asahikawa with a radius of 5 km. in the affected area all of China, our Omsk, Surgut, well, my humble little house. belay So I'm categorically against laughing
    In general, cooperation in the military sphere with China began to play in new colors, I categorically favor it. good

    Japan will immediately become a goal for Russia and China. This is uniform suicide.
