Is the Anti-Ballistic Missile system a defense or an economic collapse?
In April 2017 the United States announced a process of revising the missile defense program. However, the revision does not mean the system is curtailed or shortened. A protection of the US interests abroad from ballistic missiles is still "one of the most important priorities of the ministry". Washington continues to "seek ways to strengthen the capabilities of the missile defense system, rebalance priorities and provide the necessary strategic assessments". The United States continues to deploy a global missile defense system. Between 2016 and 2020, the Pentagon will receive $ 38 billion to finance the THAAD missile defense complex.
The situation is complicated by the fact that, instead of the promised global protection and stabilization in the regions, US military bases equipped with a missile defense system are making a situation of tension and discord in the area of deployment of these bases. The direct confirmation of this is the US military bases located in Okinawa. According to official data, the 74% of the US military bases in Japan are concentrated there. Despite the numerous protests of local residents and even Washington's promise to move the bases, it is unlikely to be removed. Since the United States can control the military activity of North Korea and China from the territory of the military bases located there. This makes Okinawa one of the most important outposts of US military forces in the Pacific Ocean. In addition to other problems related to ecology and crime, these bases cause huge economic damage to Japan, since the presence of US military facilities is costly for the Japanese treasury.
Last year, in the state budget of Japan, US military bases allocated 581.8 billion yen (more than 5.7 billion dollars). And this is only to pay for utilities at American facilities. In addition, Tokyo also almost entirely assumes the payment of salaries to the maintenance personnel of the bases, consisting of citizens of Japan. Separately, a "solidarity budget" is being formed, which is collected on a voluntary basis and is not envisaged by a bilateral agreement on the status of the US armed forces in Japan. According to the calculations of the Japanese side, one US serviceman in Japan accounts for 106 thousand dollars a year. Despite this, Japan regularly pays for the costs of US military bases. Although, according to Donald Trump, the allies must cover the cost of US military bases completely, that is, pay salaries to US servicemen, and also pay for training and military operations, including ammunition, weapons and other equipment.
Poland can serve as an example of such an economic collapse. The US missile defense system was built here last May. The losses for the Polish Redzikovo are six annual budgets of the city. In addition, from now on, according to the concluded contract, it is impossible to erect high-rise buildings in the district, and investment applications in the area of the anti-missile station must be coordinated with the Ministry of Defense and the American side, which can take up to 120 days. In contrast to the three-billion-dollar losses of power, Poland promises that in 25 years the missile defense base will bring 860 million zlotys.
Another country that will have to feel the economic burden from the American missile defense system is the Republic of Korea. Donald Trump already exposed South Korea account in 1 billion dollars for the deployment of the THAAD missile defense complex on the territory of the RK. To date, the US military presence costs South Korea 766 million a year (this is how much the Republic of Korea pays the US). But the amount is annually increased by 4% and in 2018, when the contract is revised, South Korea will have to pay the bills.
For entire history America has established military bases in 130 of the world's 197 states. Over time, the United States not only refused to deploy bases around the world, but also significantly increased their number. For the United States, this is still a measure of the strength of the state, as well as a convenient way to manipulate the country under control, all the more so that economic responsibility can always be shifted to the shoulders of another country.
