Columnist Robert Johnson of «Business Insider» considers, that China and Japan are one step closer to war. In response to the deployment of the Chinese fighter Japan is considering the possibility of resolving the pilots of their own F-15 firing tracer bullets — so Makarov warned Chinese pilots. What is it but a step to war?
At the air base «Shuimen» in Fujian province, which, according to experts, was completed at the end of last year, are combat aircraft J-10, Su-30 and various UAVs, one after arriving at the base.
In addition to aircraft, experts say, and are based on the Russian S-300, providing an almost best possible protection from missiles all over the world. C-300 are comparable, says creator, with SAM «Patriot» South American production, those that were not so long ago sent to Turkey for the "first line of defense of the Syrian."
AFB «Shuimen» China Eastern Fleet support, equipped with 35 ships in the region, including the new 054 family submarines, also eight additional amphibious ships. In the middle of the submarine — four diesel-electric submarine boat class «Kilo» Russian production, able to state of the art submarine warfare.
And all this is just 236 km from the disputed Senkaku Islands.
Although the United States did not support the official position of the Japanese, who have the islands, one would expect from their military support for the US-Japan security treaty, signed in 1960.
Meanwhile, according to Johnson, who did not quite believe that the United States would risk unleashing a full-scale war with China over several uninhabited islands, even regardless of how many there between the islands of oil and gas. Especially since China has a large force near the region and now looks very well equipped to lead a real fight.
"Reuters" wrote last week that the United States and Japan began to revise guidelines for cooperation in the field of defense for the first time in 15 years. The argument for this were the statements by the Prime Minister of "hawk" Shinzo Abe on the territorial dispute with China and nuclear-nuclear North Korea.
Officially, the Japanese Ministry of Defense, reporters learned just that Tokyo's military wants to discuss the role of Japan's Self-Defense Forces and the U.S. military forces in the future for the coming 5, 10, 15 and on regional security in certain periods. No details of the press there. However, it is clear that the revision of the defensive philosophy and definition of short-, medium-and long-term "prospects," explained sharp configuration of the security situation in the past 15 years, including the naval expansion of China and the development of missiles by North Korea. That the government land of the rising sun do not hide.
Working meeting was held in Tokyo between South American and Japanese bureaucrats. Experts assume that the development of a joint strategy takes year or more. In the end, the defense policy Land of the Rising Sun is scheduled to coincide with the South American diplomatic focus, today directed to Asia.
Currently, Japan is the fact that it is clear how the "right to collective self-defense", in other words, the right to protection with the support of allies who can start actions, even when Japan itself is not attacked. Yet the Japanese authorities usually interpreted as a pacifist constitution bans the actual implementation of the claimed right, opening the rather weak link in the security and military ties between Tokyo and Washington. Now "hawk" Abe wants to change this interpretation. This policy change will allow the Land of the Rising Sun to produce the claimed right in full force.
But the Ministry of Defence says absolutely nothing about what was discussed at a Tokyo question of the right of collective self-defense.
A lot more on the war between the United States, Japan and China went to the doctor the Australian National Institute of Hugh White, a recognized expert on international relations. Adam Westlake («The Japan Daily Press»), Referring to «Sydney Morning Herald», told that the Australian doctor foretells the Sino-Japanese War in 2013, and with the participation of the United States.
He believes that the recent Japanese air space violations by Chinese aircraft and the electoral victory in the Land of the Rising Sun, Prime Minister nationalistic creates all the prerequisites for the two Asian superpowers will arrange the war this year. White argues that the tension between developing countries with 2 now, is one of the criteria that led to war many times in history, even if the conflict was not in the interests of neither the one nor the other country.
Without a doubt, the doctor continues, the United States will be drawn into the conflict on the side of the Land of the Rising Sun. There is no guarantee that the future war will be rather short and easy. Three fronts will create the world's richest country, and two of them have a nuclear weapon.
In addition, the doctor believes that China is trying to challenge the United States, and President Barack Obama has "turned to Asia", which in itself represents a strategic response to the growing power China and its territorial claims in the region. White believes that the dispute over the islands in the East China inevitably lead to the fact that someone starts shooting.
As for the article creator, Adam Westlake, it is more than possible economic war. Specifically, this war, fraught with financial losses and risks to the economy would be more possible ending, the journalist said. We already have examples, writes analyst violent September protests in China. Implementation of Japanese cars in China fell by half. Many Japanese companies and accessories are in China: the embargo can all be destroyed. Total damage for import and export, if the public discontent with the present and likely more formal prohibitions, will be more than sufficient to destroy the constant trade relations between the two countries-name.
Robert Rodvik (Canadian resource Voltairenet.org) Recalls that America is at war with China for decades.
After decades of sheltered activities aimed at overthrowing the communist government of China, in 1989, the CIA initiated the first of their own so called "color revolutions" that have been tested the idea that the Americans later tried to embody in Eastern Europe and Georgia. In 1989, Beijing was accomplished popular protest, prior to which the CIA painstakingly taught a circle of 'students' thesis about the democratic overthrow of the communist government.
Actions in Tiananmen Square (and 3-years later) risked an open mind to highlight only the Canadian newspaper «The Vancouver Sun» Room from 17 September 1992. The newspaper referred to the materials «Associated Press». How unfortunate it did not sound, the publication was placed on the 20th page. The article traces the connection between events in Tiananme
n Square in anti-China activities of the CIA. The article was fiddling title, but Robert Rodvik encourages readers to "forget about the title," since all the names in the press created by someone else, not the creator. And often they do not have enough to do with the content of the material. As for the text, the story of the "Associated Press" was a real eye-opener. The article began:
Further in the article says:
Truth-seekers from the "Vancouver Sun" is not braked there. Another article from May 31, 1999, with reference to «Washington Post», concerned the U.S. bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade.
In fact, the bombing was the "official" answer to the constant anti-Chinese comments policy. In 1999, China accused the United States of inciting mass protests in Tiananmen Square, Beijing shaken 10 years ago, according to the article, "San". The bloody drama on the square were shown as part of the strategy for the dispensation of political chaos in China.
As for the «Washington Post», this newspaper is indicated as its editors interpret the Chinese statement. Explained to readers that these comments give Chinese "Controlled by the Parliament."
Naturally, remarks acidly friend Rodvik, we accept all that is written in China, as the undisputed absurd, but at the same time, nothing is happening in Washington, should not be our doubts.
As mentioned parliamentarians China, The United States played an inglorious role in 1989, creating a master-class protests by working out their scheme and providing the resources and products to support those who break the law … not enough of America at the same time terrifying rumors spread by using their media to deceive international community. In the "Washington Post" writes Rodvik, condemned every bit disk imaging originating from China.
For the bombing of the embassy in Belgrade on May 7 Chinese government has cast the United States bloodthirsty criticism. The purpose of shock, uttered in Beijing — the destabilization of China.
Imagine for yourself, comrade Rodvik writes that the Chinese and earnest protest just as the U.S. embassy was bombed and destroyed several of his employees. Imagine a reverse situation: China bombards U.S. Embassy anywhere in the world. What do you think will happen? .. Will be launched into the sky bombers right up to B2.
Creator striking cynicism CIA. In July 1989, there were photos, captured by force acts undertaken by "peaceful" protest parties: the pictures we litsezreem tanks, armored personnel carriers and army trucks. "Students" are armed with machine guns. Apparently, the analyst, the CIA gave them something more, if fax machines …
Vorachivayas to Yugoslavia in 1999, the creator recalls that on the night of May 7, three NATO missiles hit the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade. This atrocity Americans here explained to the "wrong", the older card that the embassy was not indicated at the appropriate place. It's pitiful explanation not certain of the 1st person, and least of all the Chinese, who were furious. 26 wounded and three dead! China has accused the U.S. of plotting to attack.
It was later revealed that the CIA had specifically chosen a target that Tipo was purely random target — because of outdated maps. Defense Secretary William Cohen and CIA Director George Tenet issued a joint statement saying that, in the views of NATO, the building housed the Yugoslav military object, not the Chinese Embassy.
If, but the wrath of the creator writes, "a gang of NATO" and in fact has no "non-target" lists of objects, according to a person thence, why this organization is so bombarded by quite a few hospitals, rest homes, churches, schools and other civilian buildings? On the same day, when it was bombed the Chinese Embassy, NATO bombers hit with cluster bombs in Nis Yugoslav clinics and outdoor market full of civilian persons, killing 15 people and wounding 70.
The Chinese, says Rodvik were humiliated. After all, they were not able to respond to the aggressor. U.S. and partners satrap like this would have made a physical statement about the fact that, say, China — Tiger cardboard.
Here, says the analyst, and the time has come when the government conformed to the Middle Kingdom: it is time to seriously develop its armed forces, giving the case a large part of the budget. Chinese analysts at the time were that without a more effective military doctrine of the sovereignty of the country and the economy may suffer from imperialist attacks, the founders of which can use nuclear weapon.
According to the views of Rodvika, with a strategic "shift" Obama, in other words reorientation to Asia-Pacific, it is only a matter of time …
With Rodvikom not fully agree independent journalist James Corbett, not so long ago who said of the Land of the Rising Sun «RT», the United States have legalized the possibility of a nuclear strike on China by entering a corresponding position in the National Defence Act, which Barack Obama has already signed. But America is not planning a nuclear attack on China, and finds justification own nuclear arsenal, the journalist said. He proposes to examine the problem of "in a broader context." For several decades the United States are trying to find a justification for existing in their tremendous arsenal of nuclear weapons and the reason for the creation of new types of weapons. There is the U.S. military and other purpose, "zarubit" contract START-3. Congress opposes even how cuts proposed by Obama, trying to undo them "before they start."
The analyst Dmitry Melnikov ("Century") Writes that the Americans have already formed some elements of the "ring of anaconda" around China. More reliable segments of "rings": Japan and South Korea. These countries have successfully fit into the system to protect U.S. interests. In their territories stationed troops "GI", and these countries are involved in the implementation of China's unsafe for a missile defense system. Japanese enterprises are performed on the missile "Aegis" and SM-3.
Chinese Comrade Hu Yimin («China Daily») recalls, that because of the "financial cliff" the U.S. can cut back on defense spending, but mistakenly believing that the decline will weaken the United States militarily.
In fact, says creator, Washington has allocated more funds for the development of the "Prompt Global Strike" — a system that allows precise strokes applied to non-nuclear weapon in at least some part of the world within an hour. According to the Russian Defense Ministry estimates that by 2015, at the disposal of the Pentagon typed from 1500 to 1800 cruise missiles sea or air, created a first strike, and by 2020 this number will increase to 2,500-3,000 units. And the U.S. is trying to combine the
BSU gallakticheskimi and anti-missile technology. Goal — building integrated defense system that is able to make strategic weapons of other states, including nuclear, almost worthless. U.S. is going to hurt the global and regional strategic balance and to minimize the ability of other states to apply strategic counter-attacks. In other words, we note, America does not parted with the desire to preserve the planet for its "hegemony."
So Makar, continuing to find ways and reasons to build "defense" arsenal, including nuclear weapons, the United States, as well as during the cool of the war, provoking retaliatory actions on the world. In the criteria when the "hawks" in Congress openly oppose Obama, the Pentagon fears hunching of the military budget, and Tokyo to Washington complains pripiraniya Chinese, though what will be possible incident lit a match to the powder keg.
