Japan’s has never experienced what is today called a “Muslim terrorist problem” and the reasons for this, is because Japan has a policy that makes it all but impossible for Muslim’s to gain entry into Japan. This policy on the part of the Japanese government essentially considers Islam as “fundamentally incompatible with Japanese culture, institutions, and democracy.” With this new anti-terror unit being developed and China’s recent call for a “new global security policy” contributed significantly to Japan’s rearmament under Mr. Abe’s government. This probably doesn’t have anything to do with “Muslim terrorism” as we’re being told by the Japanese government, rather, it will be Japan’s need to be able to intervene militarily overseas should any threat emerge to Japan’s gas and oil energy supplies. Roughly 32 percent of Japan’s oil is imported from Saudi Arabia (US$44.4 billion in 2013) making Saudi Arabia Japan’s largest provider of oil. The way things are shaping up for Saudi Arabia, who some think the Saudi monarchy as corrupt as it is, it looks as though Saudi Arabia has been lured into wars it does not have the capacity to fight. Saudi Arabia for example, highers Pakistani pilots to fly its jet fighters. And more recently, Russia has moved into China as China’s major supplier of oil despite China’s agreements on oil with Saudi Arabia. Japan is also investing in Russian energy infrastructure which is a good sign as well. It would decrease transport costs on oil and gas shipments to Japan supplied by Russia.
Japan giving the impression it is also gearing up to fight “terrorism”, and now that Japan’s constitution has been tossed aside by corporate interests, Japan can now deploy its military outside of Japan to fight “terrorism.” The screws are being applied to Japan since Royal Dutch Shell through its ownership of oil refining companies in Japan have probably told the Japanese, “Look, you want cheap secure oil and gas, come and defend it.” Wish RT would get their facts straight in the article below? It’s “Prime Minister Shinzo Abe”, not Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi inspecting the police at Narita International Airport in the image.
Recently, some Japanese guy pissed off with TEPCO and the Japanese government for their handling of the attack on Fukushima, launched a drone landing it on top of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s office building, but not before he dropped the drone on a radioactive contaminated area close to Fukushima to pick up some Cesium 137 contaminated soil. Clever little midget. The Japanese government called it an “act of terrorism” and in response, activated a “special elite police drone unit” to intercept threatening drones. The police drone has a large net attached and it can capture rogue drones before they land on top of government office buildings.

The deadly terror attacks in Paris have prompted the Japanese authorities to speed up the launch of their first ever anti-terrorism intelligence unit.
The International Counterterrorism Intelligence Collection Unit will begin its operations on Tuesday, earlier than the originally planned launch date of April 2016, Yoshihide Suga, chief cabinet secretary, said.
Suga explained the move was due to the “severe safety situation” around the globe, with unnamed Foreign Ministry sources telling Reuters that the Paris attacks were the reason for the change of date.
The unit will consist of employees from the Foreign and Defense Ministries, the National Police Agency as well as the Cabinet Intelligence and Research Office, the chief cabinet secretary said.
Its representatives are to be sent to Southeast Asia, the Middle East, northwestern Africa and other areas with high terrorist activity, he added.
“Sharing information gathered by relevant government ministries and agencies as well as the unit, we would like to establish an ‘all Japan’ system to promote antiterrorism measures,” Suga said, as cited by Kyodo news agency.
Suga added that the launch of the unit will be accompanied by set of other anti-terror measures, including the strengthening of information gathering and analysis regarding terrorism, beefing up security at ports, airports and other key facilities, and enhanced antiterrorism training.
“We will take the best possible measures to prevent terrorism in advance in cooperation with the international community,” he explained.
Japan is boosting its antiterrorist capabilities ahead of the G7 summit it is hosting on May 26-27 next year.
The country will also be the venue for the Rugby World Cup in 2019 and the Olympics and Paralympics in 2020.
