Fears of a third world war spiked over the weekend as Japan activated their marines for the first time since World War 2. About 2,100 members of the Amphibious Rapid Deployment Brigade (ARDB) were activated in a ceremony in which the troops wore camouflage.
ARDB also completed a 20-minute mock drill for the public in which the “retook” an island from an invading force. According to Reuters, the formation of the Japanese marine brigade is controversial because amphibious units can project military force and could, critics warn, be used to threaten Japan’s neighbors. In its post-WW2 constitution, Japan renounced the right to wage war.
The newly activated unit is highly trained to counter invaders occupying Japanese islands along the edge of the East China Sea that Tokyo fears are vulnerable to attack by China. “Given the increasingly difficult defense and security situation surrounding Japan, defense of our islands has become a critical mandate,” Tomohiro Yamamoto, vice defense minister, said in a speech.
The brigade is the latest component of a growing marine force that includes helicopter carriers, amphibious ships, Osprey tilt-rotor troop carriers, and amphibious assault vehicles. All of these marine measures are meant to deter China as it pushes for easier access to the Western Pacific.
The activation of the 2,100 strong ARDB takes Japan a step closer to creating a force similar to a U.S. Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) able to plan and execute operations at sea far from its home base. “They’ve already demonstrated the ability to put together an ad hoc MEU. But to have a solid, standing MEU capability requires a concerted effort,” Grant Newsham, a research fellow at the Japan Forum for Strategic Studies. “If Japan put its mind to it, within a year or year and a half it could have a reasonable capability.”
Coincidentally, the United States last month deployed its F-35Bs for their first at-sea operations aboard the USS Wasp amphibious assault ship, which is based in Sasebo. The Kyushu port is also home to Japan’s Ise and close to the ARDB’s base.
All of these military decisions seem to coalesce and reignite fears of a war. The amphibious marine force of Japan has been advancing over the past few years with the help of the United States Marines.
The future is….Now!
Thats a tripwire like the US troops on the 38th parallel DMZ. They’re stopping nothing but in order to go through them you have to kill them thus bringing in the US. They are token global chess pieces.
Ok, show me on a map just where is that Japan-China border?!
Deep underwater, I think.
That’s why they need marines instead of just plain soldiers.
In any event, Japan is becoming over populated and needs either new territory or a lower population, a war should provide one or the other.
Japan turned the corner on population years ago. They are now declining in numbers. I read that if the current rate continues, in about 300 years they will be burying the last Japanese.
Of course, the last Germans will be buried in less than 40 years – with throats slit by a wave of Moslem invaders.
I could be jailed in some European countries for just saying that. No one may oppose the globalist agenda.
It is in the ocean all these small island that are in the East China Sea,
I think it is the Russian Japan Border see the North
The Russians, Syrians and Iranians have won the war to keep the Saudi pipeline out of Syria. So there was no reason to bring on an attack by Globalist forces. The Syrians did not use chlorine gas on any one. Using gas at this stage would be suicide for the Syrians and they know it. Gulf of Tonkin over and over. Do Americans ever see through the propaganda? The so called “White Helmets” are associated with the Al Nusra terror organization.
But gas could be used by a third party or by Syria in a false flag to generate hostilities and change the political situation to the way the third party or Syria want it to be.
Probably not Syria. The US backs ISIS and Al Nusra. Probably one of them. In order to get the US and Israel to bomb Syria.
If these new forces are as tough as they were during WW2 they will make China think twice. My Uncle told me that they were as mean and tough as you can get when he fought them in WW2. It is their islands let them defend them, and if they need help we can help them, but let them take on the first strike for their land not the US taking it for them.
Sgt: You got that right! Their land, their islands, they can hold it down for a minute and then the US will run to them, I guess either way, rather the same end result…Seems “someone” is destined to get into a little bit of something should we say.
Japanese marines have proven to be masters of clandestine operations.
Yep, its fixing to go live, totally live. That’s why Abbott activated the Texas National Guard at the border. From my source, from what I heard, its not looking good, this may go down in 30 days. That’s why Trump gave the F35 to the Japs to cripple the chi-com carrier groups and to do tactical nuclear strikes on the mainland on the nuclear sites. The chi-coms have taken over islands, waters, seas, told the Viet-coms that they can enter their waters, and fish and drill oil, so Viet-com President Binh called Trump and invited the carrier to Vietnam waters. I still support Donald Trump, and he is still the best choice for America, and I don’t give a rats ass if Trump rheamed stormy daniels, the bitch is obviously taking money from the globalist bankers, to backstab Trump. Fuck stormy daniels, that low life bitch and piece of scum..Bitch got her ass bent over and rheamed and now talking shit about Trump. Dumb ass left wing globalist faction think that we are suddenly going to stop supporting Trump because he bent over some stupid porn star.
HM, china says that the entire ocean, and seas in that entire region including Japanese waters is china’s waters, so that what they meant by on the border. I hope the japs bomb the shit out them. They also said that they won America because Asians, “American Indians” are their decendents of the chinese race, and that they were here first and that gives them Asiatic rights to take over America. We will see who owns what, who owns who when they start shit over in the Continental US. South Carolina just announced and introduced a succession bill, and this is real.
From my source
The Chinese lady at the massage parlor who “love you long time?”
She says “Too buku! Too buku!
Chinese carrier groups? They have 2 aircraft carriers. 1 still going thru trials.
This sure as all ain’t going to go down well with the Chinese. They’ve not forgotten Nanking or any of the other ‘incidents’ when Japan armed up the last time. I personally don’t blame Japan in the least for this action; but, they’d best be getting busy and building some real defensive/offensive capacity. Like yesterday.
The Chinese aren’t going to do anything. There entire economy is dependent on the U.S. buying their cheap crap.
I have had bad feelings before and nothing happened. Hope the same is true this time. Just last week Trump talked about getting our troops out of Syria. Then a gas attack. Japanese activating marines. Explosions and possible Israeli attack in Syria.
What the hell is going on here. I will do some checking to see what I can find out but too much going on in this world.
Too much risk right now. One mistake is all it would take and WW3.
Time to embrace the horror, kiddies.
In the past 70 years, when has there ever NOT been “too much risk right now”?
Which means all it’s going to take is one fuck up.
Which has to happen sooner or later.
Dear governments: you finally invented Zeus. It can smite you from the heavens. You might wanna start acting like you’re living under the watchful eye of “angry god”, I’m just saying.
William Casey, the late head of the CIA in the 1980’s said, We’ll know how complete our disinformation campaign is, when everything Americans believe is wrong. Your government? I think not.
Anybody remember Dec. 7, 1941? China this time?
No, anybody that could remember that is long dead. Ask if we could remember 9/11/2000, that is our Pearl Harbor.
Think you meant 9/11/2001. Orchestrated by CIA, MI6, Mossad, NWO weasels, Saudis, and
Satanist scumbags that serve the central banks. Trillions of dollars and thousands of
American lives wasted. ISIS is a CIA creation, Johnny Stiner. Keep watching Fox News.
I hear that all their uniforms are made in China! The Nips (my parents and my wife’s parents were all in WW2) can protect their island but China can flood them with soldiers. Since both have no regard for the individual, combat would be quite a show. Human Wave vs Banzai Attack.
The Russians proved that you can;t win against a human wave.
tactical nukes. one shot, one million kills bye bye human wave
China, Taiwan and Japan all claim the same islands. The Japanese call them Sentayu and the Chinese call them Diaoyu. The country that occupies the islands can claim the oil, mineral, and fishing rights. Japan has occupied the islands for decades, but the Chinese have been the aggressor. The Chinese have over 1,600 incursions. The Russians also have incurred on many occasions as well. China and Japan both claim the airspace over the islands.
The Japs should have REALLY poked the bear by sending those Nippon Marines to participate in the joint US-South Korean war exercises …
Don’t believe the propaganda. They won’t bust a grape.
