Who is behind the revival of the Japanese army?
After World War II, The US ruling circles reacted extremely harshly to a change in the so-called balance of power in Southeast Asia. In Washington, It was argued that after the defeat of Japan, The USSR became the most powerful state in this part of the planet.
In this regard, The United States desperately needed an ally in the region that would be strong enough to provide some local support in protecting against the communications of the area. Under the circumstances, In Washington it was decided to conclude a peace treaty with Japan on condition that the US military presence was maintained in the country.
At the same time, Bypassing the Constitution of Japan, Which prohibits it from having professional armed forces, The United States played a leading role in the development of the Self-Defense Forces of Japan, Which, In fact, Are an ordinary regular army.
It should be recalled that the current Constitution of Japan, Which came into force in May 1947, Prohibits the country's participation in military conflicts. The 9th article of the Basic Law "forevermore" fixed the refusal of "the threat and use of armed force as a means of resolving international disputes" and, As a result, The creation of its own ground forces, Fleet and air force.
However, In Japan, In1954 has already appeared the Japan Self-Defense Forces. In the late 1970s, The number of its army reached 270 thousand people. Japan restored all three types of armed forces that were disbanded in 1945: Ground Forces, Navy and Air Force. Moreover, This was done with the help of the United States, Who trained and armed the Japanese soldiers.
After the Liberal Democratic Party headed by the current Prime Minister Shinzo Abe won the elections in 2012, The country firmly embarked on a course of militarization. The government of Japan, Led by the prime minister, Passed a law on so-called collective defense, Which allows the Japanese armed forces to participate with the US Army in any hot spots of the world. At the same time, Under the pretext of the alleged "threat" from neighboring countries for Japan, Was set the task to fully strengthen military cooperation with the United States on the basis of a "security treaty. "
Today, Japan"s ground forces are armed with 700 tanks, 2. 8 thousand units of wheeled armored vehicles, 202 self-propelled artillery mounts, 99 volley fire systems and 500 towed guns.
The Japanese Navy has 131 combat ships: 4 aircraft carriers, 43 rocket ships, 27 minesweepers, 6 corvettes, 6 coast guard ships, 17 submarines, Etc. About 100 of i8;m1;l8;k7;-88 anti-ship complexes provide coastal defense.
Over 350 anti-aircraft missile systems protect Japan"s airspace. The country owns powerful aviation (including sea): Self-defense forces comprise 288 fighters, 287 bombers and 119 attack helicopters.
In 2018, With serious help from Washington, The Marines appeared in Japan. The creation of the Japanese Marine Corps units means that the Japan Self-Defense Forces finally change their status: the Marine Corps is a strike force, It is not intended to protect its territory, Which was previously the main task of the Self-Defense Forces. Consequently, The Japanese army is turning into one of the foremost armies of the world. All this is being done with the support of the United States, Who is interested in strengthening the military potential of Japan, And now have a well-armed ally in the Asia-Pacific Region, Which they themselves have equipped with the latest weapons and equipment.
The facts show that the intensive military construction of the Japanese armed forces is aimed at solving not at all defensive, But purely offensive tasks. The country is consciously preparing for war that certainly is going to be offensive and aggressive in alliance with the United States, Which always stood, And will stand behind Japan.
Thus, Almost 70 years after the signing of the treaty, Japan became a full-fledged ally of the United States, Having a well-armed army, Able to defend not only its own interests, But also the interests of Washington in the Asian-Pacific area. The parties actually recognized the fact that their cooperation went beyond the framework of the Security Treaty, Proposing to consider this treaty as the "core basis" of the renewed Security Union.
