Military tensions are gradually escalating, not only from the West, where NATO is “dancing round” around the Kaliningrad region, and in the USA they already call Koenigsberg “occupied territory”, but also from the East. Japan is actively pumping muscles, investing in the development of the Navy and hypersonic weapons.
Japanese military experts cite China as a potential adversary, but is there some kind of “doublethink” in Tokyo’s actions?
The development of the offensive potential of Japan shows a very unpleasant dynamics. The facts are as follows:
At firstTokyo suddenly became the potential owner of two aircraft carrier strike groups. At one time, the cunning Japanese built two helicopter carriers: Izumo (DDH183) and Kaga (DDH184). Initially, it was obvious to military experts that the silhouette and overall design of these ships very much resemble small aircraft carriers. Last year, Japanese authorities announced that a decision had been made to modernize them, as a result of which it would be possible to put an F-35B wing on each of them. As you know, an aircraft carrier is not a weapon of defense, but an attack.
SecondlyJapanese scientifictechnical genius made a real breakthrough in the production of submarines. In the series of diesel-electric submarines “Syuryu” a new one equipped with a lithium-ion battery has appeared. A large battery charge at times increases its duration of continuous stay under water, the speed reaches 37 kilometers per hour. In this case, the submarine has high rates of noiselessness. In other words, at 1/3 of the cost of the nuclear submarines, Tokyo got something close to them in terms of characteristics.
Thirdly, the activity of the Russian Federation and the USA in the field of hypersonic weapons did not leave the Japanese indifferent. Already existing developments in Tokyo allow you to strike at a distance of up to 500 kilometers. But this range is not final: by 2026, Japan intends to get a highly maneuverable hypersonic missile capable of hitting large ships, including aircraft carriers, from a safe distance. Non-American AUGs are clearly implied, as Tokyo is counting on US assistance in developing weapons.
So, Japan is very seriously preparing for war. With whom? It is believed that with China. But let's not forget about the "northern territories".
Tokyo is currently trying to return the Kuril Islands through some kind of “joint use”: on paper, the islands are Russian, de facto - Japanese. But everything can change overnight.
Recently we toldas in Europe, "subversive work" is currently underway, the purpose of which is to designate the USSR as one of the culprits of the outbreak of World War II. Already, the European Parliament has recognized the invasion of Poland as a direct consequence of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. Before transferring the Soviet Union, and, therefore, the Russian Federation as its successor, only one step remained from the victims of aggression to the status of aggressor.
The consequences will be most deplorable: all territorial acquisitions following the results of the Second World War will be declared illegal, among them, the Kaliningrad region and the Kuril Islands. And then it will be time for Tokyo to send troops to the "northern territories". In such a situation, will the Russian leadership begin to hit strategic countries with NATO nuclear weapons, starting the Apocalypse, after which the survivors will fight in the bunkers for a can of stew?
Probably yes. But how can one not recall Brzezinski’s infamous quote about the real identity of “elites”. By the way, the other day these same elites have defended their right to have real estate abroad, well, in those very NATO countries that are supposed to be incinerated in a nuclear flame. So think for yourself.
