This has been brewing for a long long time. This should be NO Surprise to anyone in the International Defense Analysis of any Country.
It is a simple solution: Tell China NO! And if they want to go to war.... Then go to War and Destroy the Communist Government. Yes, it will be bloody. It will be horrendous.
But Freedom and Human Rights will be protected.
Waiting will only make it harder in the future. "We" have watched and seen China grow its forces and its aggressive nature over many years. It is very clear what they intend to do and their intention to control the East China Sea and the South China Sea. They are bullies!!
Stop them NOW while it is not so hard.

It's good to see the numbers getting lower.

I voted Yes. But qualify that by adding the Japan will not be the aggressor, or be declaring war, but will be responding in defense to attacks from an adversary.

You can probably figure actual numbers are at least twice as many people infected. Maybe 3 times. But the lower numbers are very welcome and good to see. Things are improving.

Thank God he is NOT the leader of the USA. Punish Criminals. NOT law abiding citizens.

Posted in: The government will decide (whether to use the new SDF function) once the situation arises where the enemy has made a clear intent of launching an attack and has begun taking steps for that move. See in context
A preemptive strike is normally a defensive action. Having that "Right"/Ability can also serve as a strong deterrent .

What about Japan using this time while Russia is tied up with Ukraine, just to sweep the Russians OFF the Territories and re-claim their land. :)

Japan supporting the International Community against the Russian aggression is welcome and a good & responsible action.

Sad that this happened. Maybe having ALL Chinese visitors and especially their diplomatic visitors have COVID testing by anal swab to ensure they are not carrying the virus while entering, traveling in, and leaving Japan.

In Japan they use knives, clubs, and sometimes gasoline to put their anger on others. The problem is not because of the GUN. It's that people are not taught proper gun safety and respect for the dangers improper handling of a gun can cause.
The same can be said for knives. More people are killed in the USA with fist & feet, knives and clubs than with rifles. Real and very large amounts of deaths are from DRUGS in America. Far far more than guns.

Maybe. It depends on what events will be offered on TV. I normally only watch a couple of Winter events just to get the highlights and final results.

Slickdrifter Do you understand the "M.A.D." Strategy with regard to nuclear weapons?? If not, you might want to do some reading. It has worked very well over many years. The choice might be for China to decide: is it really worth it to them (China) to risk a nuclear confrontation over the Islands??
When they know we (US & Japan) have advanced anti-missile defenses (AGIES), SM-3, and strike capabilities that they cannot defend against.
Of course the US will explore applying more sanctions etc... etc..,, but if China should pursue capturing Islands they will have a very serious choice to make.

joey stalin This action would violate the US position on the Senkaku Islands. "The US opposes any attempt to change the status quo."
No country on earth supports Japan's claim to the islands. So, Japan will have to go it alone. Good luck with that.
Sorry joey, It's obvious you do not know about the US-Japan Mutual Defense treaty nor the context of the "status quo" you mention. And that is China may NOT change the Status Quo which is Japan is in possession (owns) and administers the Islands. If you would actually READ the reports on the recent visit, the US REALLY DOES support Japan on this issue.

Japan has been recommended/urged to build anti-ship missile and air defense sites on the islands for many years!! Japan's own inaction encourages China's infractions.

China may soon realize that the USA is exercising GREAT restraint by not turning Beijing into a flat glass city and sending their country back into the stone age similar to Afghanistan and Iran.
The USA can be a Big Bully too if need be.
