Japan Announces Military Buildup to Counter China
Hope Japan doesn’t hope Obama will come to help them since he loves his communist buddies.
Check it out:
Japan has announced a plan to change its military strategy from “pacifism” to “proactive pacifism,” and to increase defense spending and transform its military from a largely land-based force to a new amphibious assault force. The shopping list includes twenty-eight F-35 stealth fighters, 17 Osprey tilt rotor aircraft, 52 amphibious assault vehicles, and 99 light combat vehicles.
Japan’s military buildup plans come in response to China. China has quadrupled its defense budget in the last ten years, has claimed vast areas of the South and East China Seas, including regions that have historically belonged to other countries, has threatened to use its vast military power to take some of these areas by force, and has been harassing Japanese ships around the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands, which are governed by Japan.
