Japan PM Wants First-Strike Capability

In the best case, a Japan — North Korea MAD

Good luck getting North Korea to give them up once Japan has them pointed at it 

Editor’s note: North Korea faces innumerably more security threats than does Japan. If then Japan feels the need to have such missiles, doesn’t that prove just how urgent it is for North Korea, that has 30,000 troops belonging to a hostile, nuclear-armed world hegemon (that is nominally still at war with it, and continues to strangle it with a blockade) parked a stone-throw from its border, to have them?

Outgoing Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo has taken the Japanese defenses policy away from its post-war pacifism to a growing military with an increasingly loose sense of self-defense. A week before stepping down, he’s talking taking it a step farther.

Abe now says he wants Japan to have “first-strike” capabilities to attack enemy bases around the area. Abe argued that would increase deterrence, meaning this is the ultimate extension of “self-defense,” where the nation would be flagrantly attacking other countries and claiming defense.

Abe suggested intercepting missiles was no longer sufficient, [Well he’s right about that. Any “missile defense” is untested and highly suspect.] and called for a new revised defense policy. With Japan’s two main rivals being China and North Korea, any Japanese first strikes would likely start a major war.

Abe’s call is likely to be supported by his successor, with his party’s leadership largely leaning hawkish, particularly when it comes to China. Given US hostility toward China, it’s likely the US will push them toward this action as well.

    Does Japan have a collective memory of what happened the last time they did the first strike thingy ?

      Japan is begging for some more of what they got in WW2

      Yeah, but this time around, they have been assured if they buy American products they will be on top. L.O.L.

      Degenerate uman animals are a source of endless FUN!

      I found this one quite accurate!

      All but a few humans, the simple ones who look up in wonder, realize their world could be swept away suddenly with something as simple as say, a nuclear exchange, a corona mass ejection or a small asteroid strike.

      I’m one of those few waiting to see the one of the Greatest Shows we can see “a corona mass ejection or a small asteroid strike”

      That’s why the name of my blog is “The Comet Never Arrives…

    How does North Korea have a blockade of Japan?

    1. voza0db says

      Because they say so!

    Translation: The US wants Japan to arm up against China. China and Russia should not tolerate any of this crap.

      Yes put a military base 1.5 Km from Japan with nukes. The deal, if you Japan go down this path, we put nukes 1.5 Km from Japan. (Kuril Islands) Kunashir island

    ahhhh,,, the sweet smell of fascism is returning.

      I hadn’t noticed it because I’m gagging over the stench emanating from the CCP.

      If it’s good for America, why wouldn’t it also be good for Japan as well. I predicted years ago, if the U.S. did not minimise it’s behaviour, it wouldn’t be long that other nations would also take a page from their book and apply it to themselves as well. After all, if the U.S. can do it, why can’t anyone else ? The U.S. invades and tortures people at will, when other nations begin to follow this behaviour, and the victims become Americans, wait to hear the screaming how despicable such actions are. L.O.L.
