I just saw the “pic of the day” in japantoday.com, and while screening the comments I saw this:
I agree, this is a great picture and a fun event to witness. I have seen it twice from the top of Mt. Fuji, and the whole thing is like watching a Godzilla (The 70′s version) movie.
Unfortunately, this is also an excerize in antiquity. What Japan really needs to do, what it has not done even with about 20 years of warning, is to transform the military from a heavy armoured force designed to bottle up the Soviets in Hokkaido till the U.S. Army arrives, to a mobile rapid deployment force oriented to the South and West of the country.
We need fewer, or no pictures of Tanks and many more pictures of Subs, Small Carriers, and A whole new fleet of 5th Generation Aircraft because war, if it comes, will be won or lost at Sea and in the Air.
I couldn’t agree more to him. Japan needs to stop wanting to be the “peaceful” country in Asia, and start thinking in their own situation. They cannot have military since 1945, but they have significant treats to appeal to do so. China and Russia are just the tip of the iceberg. They should not count on USA military help so much, it’s overruling their own sovereignty power. No history in the world was never ‘peaceful’, it’s always a matter of power and in which side you’re on.
De acordo com esse post do ISAPE, a China estaria investindo no sudeste da Ásia para o desenvolvimento do comércio, alimentos, energia e recursos.
Aham, senta lá Cláudia!
Como se ninguém soubesse que o sudeste da Ásia é a região mais conflituosa do continente, e que se a China ganhasse influência lá, seria muito mais do que exercer poder sobre o sudeste, e sim um reconhecimento internacional de tamanho astronômico. Até porque, certamente percebeu o enfraquecimento do Japão nos últimos anos, e consequentemente, sua influência está desgastada.
