Yes I have been watching the JASDF restructuring towards defense of the SW islands due to the inceasing threat from China. Even transporting Tanks from Hokkaido all the way to the south of Japan.I am aware that US forces can help defend Hokkaido easily if needed.

The tri-color German flag whih goes back to 1919 is distinct from the Nazi flag, a political flag which was in use only during the period that the National Socialist Party was in power. The Japanese Naval Ensign does not fit this category. Nothing like watching the uneducated and misguided digging themselves deeper into the hole.
