Japan starts to flex its military might moving naval assets to the Senkaku Islands

Economist The Anglo-American satrap of Japan has been instructed to escalate the conflict with China as Japan threatens to move naval assets to the Senkaku Islands. Shinzu Abe’s government continues diplomatic negotiations with Russia to get Abe to Russia this year to discuss the Kuril Islands, which Japan would like nothing better then to take control over. Japan is not acting alone and are in communication with their Anglo-American overlords to move these naval assets to the Senkaku Islands as a warning to China to not send China’s navy to the islands. And just as Japan is instructed to send their naval assets to the Senkaku Islands, former US Defense Secretary William Cohen suggested South Korea and Japan deploy THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) missile systems. William Cohen’s company the Cohen Group, is well connected to Lockheed Martin which is the defense manufacturer that manufactures the THAAD missile system (one THAAD system costs US$800 million), Cohen’s stock portfolio is probably loaded with Lockheed Martin stock options. Without war and the constant threat of war, “defense” manufacturers are curtailed from manufacturing profitable weapon systems. So pay up Japan and South Korea. Meanwhile, Japan’s social welfare payments system remains one side of a huge debt trap for Japan?

If Japan is so adamant about controlling the Senkaku Islands, why hasn’t Japan made similar gestures towards Russia over the Kuril Islands? There was never any contention between China and Japan over the Senkaku Islands until Tokyo’s nationalist right wing mayor, Shintaro Ishihara, returned from a Heritage Foundation (the Heritage Foundation is a premier Anglo-American think tank) U.S.-Japan Alliance symposium in Washington DC in 2012. As soon as Shintaro Ishihara returned from Washington, he started ragging on China.  The Anglo-Americans forced Japan’s hand to act the way they are now towards China over these islands. I suspect after reading a few Anglo-American think tank publications is to breakup the increasingly powerful Chinese empire. So what we see here is escalation over the Senkaku Islands since 2012 when Shintaro Ishihara returned from Washington until January, 2016 as Japan now prepares to send its naval assets to the Senkaku Islands. Check the date on the British oligarch mouthpiece The Economist above and readers will notice the date September, 2012. The Anglo-American oligarchs put the word out in September, 2012 and on November, 1 2012 Tokyo’s mayor Shintaro Ishihara shows up in Washington like he has been instructed.

Def. Minister Reiterates Japan Ready to Send Warships to Disputed Islands

January 12, 2016

Japan naval assetsJapanese Defense Minister stated that Japan is ready to send its warships to the area of the disputed Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea.

TOKYO (Sputnik) – Japan is ready to send its warships to the area of the disputed Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea in case China’s navy approaches them, Japanese Defense Minister Gen Nakatani reiterated on Tuesday.

“If the situation becomes difficult to resolve with the help of the Coast Guard, the self-defense forces will be ordered to launch defensive operations at sea,” Nakatani said, as broadcast by the NHK television.

The response mechanism at sea was approved by Japan’s government in May 2015.

The Senkaku Islands, known as the Diaoyu in China, are the subject to long-standing regional territorial disputes between China, Japan and Taiwan. The islands are part of Japan’s Okinawa Prefecture.

In 2014, Japan and China agreed to reduce tensions over the disputed islands. However, Chinese vessels repeatedly intruded Japanese territorial waters around the Senkaku Islands in 2015.
