Posted in: Cabinet to approve Aegis ships as alternative to ashore system See in context

Did the Government consider the many small islands with little or no population that could support Aegis system instead of building costly ship platform?

Posted in: U.S. power waning in Pacific, warns top Australian think tank See in context

Japan, South Korea, and SE Asian countries can kiss the US protection goodbye. The US does not have the power projection and ground forces to fend off China's grab for islands in South China Sea or Taiwan. Japan doesn't have booths on the ground at the disputed Senkaku Islands so China can land troops and take possession of it - hey its disputed, that what it is !! PM Abe need to put a small coast guard station on the islands !!

Posted in: Japan-S Korea rift may change regional economic, security structures See in context

Bickering like this is going to put a hard line on the US administration to pull out major support to Japan and Korea. Possibly withdrawing the majority of US troops out.

Posted in: Trump praises North Korea after missile tests rattle region See in context

The master at work ! Trump wants NK to be strong so that he can bend Japan to tilt more towards the US defense thinking. This will push Japan take a more active defense role that the US has always hoped for.

Posted in: 4 Chinese ships enter Japanese waters around Senkaku Islands See in context

JSDF and US military should use the islands as gunnery and bombing ranges. That should keep the Chinese out of the area.
