Japanese submarine aircraft to 22 in Naha 36 deal with China’s navy
data for: a large number of the main U.S. and Japanese warships in the Pacific held its annual joint military exercises.
the first time since 1976 the Japanese government to develop “National Defense Program Outline” has experienced a total of four changes. From every change, the Japanese Self-Defense Force’s defense has actually exceeded the content and the Japanese “peace constitution” under the defense properties.
According to Japan’s “Yomiuri Shimbun” reported that the new “National Defense Program Outline” of the core content of the “China’s defense spending increases and the Chinese naval activities in waters surrounding Japan frequently of” as “that area matters of concern and the international community “; and change the past, a balanced distribution of the national defense forces of the” basic defense force concept “, instead of building a” mobile defense force “defense concept, focus on strengthening the defense capabilities and the southwest area of ??the warning and surveillance efforts .
in the original discussion of the “three principles of arms exports” to redefine a substantial relaxation of arms exports in this sector, given the opposition Social Democratic Party, Democrats and look forward to next year’s budget passed by Congress on the issue with the party cooperation, the issue held in abeyance. But the new “National Defense Program Outline” is still pointed out that the international joint development of weapons developed countries has become “mainstream,” In response to this international trend, the Japanese Government should start negotiations.
According to “Asahi Shimbun” reported that the Japanese Ministry of Defense in addition to plans to purchase a number of new fighters, but also plans of a naval submarine from the 16 to 22, the air defense base in Naha of 18 to prepare a fighter units from the two fully strengthen the “southwest islands’ sea and air defense capabilities. New “framework” also pointed out that to strengthen the trend of the Southwest Islands of the defense, must to the Self-Defense Forces stationed in the Islands that are not sending troops to a minimum. To this end, according to “mid-term defense adjustment programs”, the Japanese Ground Self Defense will be expanded, and in the next five to eight years in Miyako Island, Ishigaki Island, or the deployment of hundreds of people GSDF garrison troops. In addition, the Yonaguni will deploy about 100 Ground Self-Defense coastal surveillance forces. These arrangements, mainly for the southwest islands with the nearest Chinese mainland and Taiwan.
In addition, the new “National Defense Program Outline Plan” also states, in response to “missile threat” will be Japan’s four “Aegis” destroyers and frigates to transform part, a corresponding increase in vessel number. Including Okinawa, including Japan will deploy a nationwide missile defense system, using ground-based interceptor missiles to shoot down the missile to fly to Japan.
Chinese scholars believe that, in general it seems Japan’s new National Defense Program Outline has two main features, first, the future of Japan’s military to prevent the main object will be to shift the focus towards the southwest. The second is to strengthen such as Okinawa, the number of self-defense, there are a number of submarines and reconnaissance forces, the SDF had not deployed in the past these islands, probably to the Chinese navy and the main monitor China’s military power, may also Marine Corps to increase the so-called new or amphibious forces.
for Japan on the Diaoyu Islands waters shortly before the collision occurred, the new National Defense Program Outline of the final plan will strengthen the Japanese government clearly written “on the surrounding waters of the claim of sovereignty.” Prior to that, “Japanese Economic News” that reflect the new National Defense Program Outline in and out of Japan’s maritime activities in China have a strong awareness of prevention. Outline of the new “mobile defense capabilities” concept is clearly aimed at China.
the face of declining domestic public support, led by Naoto Kan of the Democratic Party what the government means to save his regime? Domestic economic downturn, hawkish Foreign Minister Maehara strongly of speculation on the Diaoyu Islands in the conflict will ultimately have ended in gloom, the U.S. promised to support and help mostly lip, through these, the Japanese people and not to the Democratic Party government face support rate is still declining.
In this case, the Democratic Party of Japan introduced the new government again once every five years, “National Defense Program Outline,” as people pulled up support for the straw, hoping to public discontent with the government moved to China’s military threats. This calculator will succeed it?
According to Japan’s Kyodo News reported on 17 December, Japan’s new “National Defense Program Outline” in the security meeting held the same day and be adopted at a cabinet meeting, which replaces the currently implemented with a minimum of six years defense forces as the core principle of the old framework.
for compelling new “National Defense Program Outline”, the Japanese media, Japan’s Maritime Self-Defense Force’s capability will greatly be strong, but Japan will be closer to the Chinese navy’s “warning and surveillance,” while the new “National Defense Program Outline,” also expressed concerns about the Chinese navy. In short, it is obvious that Japan has military development and military construction to focus on “how to deal with China” on top.

■ aggravate tensions in Northeast Asia
for the introduction of the new Japanese “National Defense Program Outline,” analysts pointed out that the new “framework” in everywhere reveals the military to compete with neighboring countries posture, also shows that the stability of Japan’s moving away from diplomatic, to force into the first of the attitude and position, marking Japan’s growing focus on improving the force of sudden made incident response, not even rule out the possibility of pre-emptive attack. The international community generally believes that the lack of genuine remorse on history issues in the case of Japan’s military power of the road will only make its Asian neighbors worry and anxiety. This aggressive defense posture and diplomatic situation, itself, is not Japanese is a good thing.
Chinese Japanese scholar, Professor Institute of International Studies, Tsinghua University Liu Jiangyong that Japan’s defense shift in emphasis, mainly due to limited resources, the impact of Japan’s defense: “Japan in the context of limited financial capacity, the main will focus its defense, deployed from the average in Japan, turned to the deployment in the southwest islands, including close to some islands near Taiwan, including some of China’s Diaoyu Islands, the Sino-Japanese relations is a negative factor. “
Professor Liu Jiangyong analyzed, the new “framework” will affect Sino-US relations, together with the resulting effect. He said: “The new National Defense Program Outline is also involved with the United States. The future of Japan in this regard will further intensify with China’s southwestern islands surrounding the dispute, and how the United States in this place with China to strengthen deterrence, which are China’s great concern. “
as the new” National Defense Program Outline, “clearly, further strengthen cooperation with South Korea, Australia, India and ASEAN cooperation partner countries, the British Royal Institute of International Affairs Fellow, Lu Yiyi told” Voice of America “interview that the” outline “exacerbated tensions in Northeast Asia:” Japan’s new defense plan will certainly further exacerbate tensions in the region will certainly lead to China’s concerns, because the situation in Northeast Asia is still not very quiet, for example, the situation the DPRK and the U.S. and other countries where the military exercises, and so on. “
■ too much” for “China will have the opposite effect
outline appears in the new “dynamic defense capabilities” concept, in Japan, observers in order to pursue a more effective military deterrent to any military threat and more likely to give the response, it will improve the ability of the SDF mission, such as rapid detection and patrol, which reflects the real Cold War defense policy of a breakthrough.
In this regard, Japan’s “Daily News” published an article that the rapid increase in China’s annual military spending, but in recent years in the waters around Japan to see China’s naval activities are increasing, the Chinese navy and air force for the development of into a huge military. Nevertheless, given China’s role in the international political arena and the future of Sino-Japanese relations, apparently counterbalance China’s military power should not become the core of Japan’s China policy. Japan now needs to start in all areas of an inclusive strategy toward China, including the political, economic, diplomatic and security, or Japan and the increasingly powerful neighbor relations will become increasingly stiff.
some Japanese scholars also believe that Japan has accepted the so-called engagement policy toward China, with the United States would pull China into the international system and to encourage their responsibility to the international community affairs, abide by international law and practice. Therefore, Japan should not fight over China’s military power and trigger an arms race, which is not conducive to regional security. Japan should seek a more balanced policy toward China.
“Japan Xinhua China Press” commentary that Japan’s new “National Defense Program Outline,” not only face, turned, and the change of heart.
first from the media content, the new defense outline can be used to “fade” at the evaluation. The Outline of China’s “face”, in a nutshell is to use a “worry,” the statement, the Chinese established with North Korea is at least equal to “opponents” and even “enemy” position, to disguise in Japan will remain strong ” China threat theory “into the national defense of the programmatic document. This is the period of Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party are not made of things.
Secondly, this new framework also can be said for Japan’s defense policy, “change” to do the groundwork. Which to modify the prohibition of “three principles of arms exports,” wrote the leeway formulation.
third, along with the change of Prime Minister and Democratic Party power struggle within the increasingly fierce, Japan’s foreign policy to re-strengthen the Japan-US military alliance as the core, to China and North Korea as a rival. As the experts pointed out, look at Japan’s postwar national security strategy, the largest historic home is “to maintain the state system” and efforts. The second largest historic home can be seen as the establishment of “Japan-US military alliance.” The third largest historic home is the “strategic re-armament.” And the new National Defense Program Outline of the launch, eventually evaluated as “change of heart”, the Japanese military before starting an important starting point.
