since the 1990s, Japan has been strengthening the effectiveness of control over the Diaoyu Islands, Koizumi had once reached a climax. Subsequently, after a period of relative calm, the Japanese side has gradually increased in 2008 to monitor the island. To achieve long-term purpose of illegal possession of the Diaoyu Islands, Japan Coast Guard relies on force, the active mobilization of troops, the Diaoyu Islands waters formed a “police coordination, joint monitoring, multi-block” close “blockade.” And all this behind the Japanese ambition to compete for control of the sea.
large fire patrol boats to scare people
Coast Guard is responsible for following the Japanese Ministry of Land, maritime rights and interests of safeguarding the civil sector, it is Japan on the Diaoyu Islands rights of nearby waters illegally, “advance.”
waters surrounding Japan Coast Guard will be from north to south in turn divided into 11 district, headquartered in the city of Okinawa in the 11th District, mainly targeted at China’s Diaoyu Islands and surrounding waters. 11th District under and according to different geographical jurisdiction of the establishment of several divisions. Among them, Ishigaki Maritime Security Department because of the location closer to the Diaoyu Islands, is mainly responsible for the intercept from the Chinese mainland and Taiwan, “fishing” boats of the task.
power to prevent the legitimate Chinese civil activism, the Japan Coast Guard nearly two years, rising hardware level, try to rely on the mighty firepower, performance, advanced inspection equipment firmly under control “site.”
present, the waters near the Diaoyu Islands by the Coast Guard’s daily monitoring tasks are responsible for 10, 11 district, two district were under the jurisdiction of various types of patrol vessels 47, 16 aircraft, of which 3200-ton patrol ship 3, 1000 to 2000-ton patrol ship 8. In these inspections ton ship which, PLH type is the Japan Coast Guard patrol ship used to block China’s “fishing” force “housekeeping weapons.” This type of patrol ship loaded displacement of 3200 tons, equipped with several doors Su Shebao, the above can be equipped with helicopters, fire far more than neighboring countries like maritime enforcement vessels. Since last February, the model of the Diaoyu Islands waters inspection ship resident is responsible for “every corner” of the monitor.
Currently, Japan has the PLH-type patrol ship, the tonnage of the largest is “deposited Island”, the displacement of about 65 tons, more than 20,000 sea miles away from life. The ship is equipped with advanced cannon and patrol helicopters, destroyers and frigates combat a little better than less. Japanese patrol vessels will be deployed near the Diaoyu Islands, nothing more than to use force to declare its control over the Diaoyu Islands.
network implementation of the three-guard curb
since December 8, 2008 two ocean surveillance ship into Chinese waters of the Diaoyu Islands after the implementation of legitimate activism, Japan Coast Guard monitoring efforts on growing the Diaoyu Islands, in the daily number of patrols by the two patrol boats to three, the frequency of air monitoring from day 1 up to twice a day or even three.
same time, the Coast Guard on the Diaoyu Islands, “guard system,” the scope and focus are adjusted. Previously, the Coast Guard around the Diaoyu Islands is divided into three patrol zones: within 12 sea miles from the Diaoyu Islands as “the absolute prohibition zone”, into the waters of the Chinese vessel “at all costs” to be expelled, the specific means, including impact, high-pressure water gun injection, etc.; 12 sea miles to 24 nautical miles “strict control zones”, into the waters of non-Japanese propaganda ships for target identification and expulsion; 24 sea miles away as the “warning and surveillance zone”, according to the different nature of the target to the trailing monitoring, warning, expulsion, etc. to be closely monitored.
the “guard system” is the core of the vessel near the Diaoyu Island to prevent Chinese folk. The waters around the Diaoyu Islands in China for the warships and public vessels, Coast Guard surveillance usually trailing only way to take control. China Marine Surveillance “12.8″ operation, the Coast Guard to the “guard system” was amended to increase the vigilance of the Chinese official efforts to ship.
Coast Guard Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force is the implementation of illegal rights of the “reserve army.” Coast Guard’s 11 district and Maritime Self Defense Force Yokosuka, Wu, Sasebo, Maizuru and large garrison realized Minato five cross-cutting and overlapping. Under normal circumstances, incidents at sea by the Coast Guard to come forward disposition, with the Self-Defense Force vessels to be protected. The Diaoyu Islands waters, the Coast Guard also coordinated SDF vessels according to the specific situation involved in emergency operations.
self-defense force to defend secret
Japanese sovereignty over the Diaoyu Islands competition, driven by economic interests, in addition, the underlying motivation is Japan’s geopolitical strategy to prevent expression. Therefore, in order to achieve the strategic intent of the actual control of the Diaoyu Islands, Japan is also actively use a variety of military resources in the Diaoyu Islands waters formed a “police coordination, joint monitoring, multi-block” strong deployment situation.
Japan over the Diaoyu Islands has long been brewing for many years the military conspiracy. As early as 2002, the Japanese Army set up to seize on the Islands for the purpose of “Outlying Islands special operations forces.” Beginning in 2004, the force to the Diaoyu Islands as the background for a number of simulation exercises. Among them, the most outside attention in January 2006 is the first time to the troops held in the United States and U.S. Marine Corps, “won the island exercise”, the two sides focused on training, including the amphibious raid, seize the island and sea surveillance, including more than one test subjects. Since then, the forces also carried out with the U.S. military code-named “Iron Fist” of the amphibious landing exercise, the exercise will drill the object explicitly framed in similar terrain to the Diaoyu Islands on a small island operations.
In addition, the Japanese Self-Defense Force took on the main task of military control over the Diaoyu Islands. The first 2,4 in Kyushu and Sasebo Guard base where the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force team is the backbone for the direction of Diaoyu Islands fighting force, having the capacity to implement multi-ship “Osumi” class amphibious assault ship’s landing. In addition, stationed in Okinawa, “Nancy air hybrid group” formed on the Diaoyu Islands from the air monitoring situation. The first group of naval aviation of 1,5 P-3C anti-submarine patrol aircraft also regularly patrol the implementation of the air.
control of the Diaoyu Islands to contain the rise of China
analysts believe that Japan is exerting every effort , changing the pattern around the Diaoyu Islands to engage in “petty” in an attempt to use force to deter illegal control the way the purpose of the Diaoyu Islands, has far-reaching strategic considerations behind.
Japan, a serious lack of land resources, marine resources, to grab most attention. Seabed near the Diaoyu Islands bears some 3 billion -70 billion tons of oil, and its also very rich in fishery resources, the annual catch amounted to 150,000 tons. Such as possession of the Diaoyu Islands, Japan, will greatly increase the jurisdiction of the exclusive economic zone, the region’s natural resources would fall into Japanese hands since.
addition to the temptation of economic interests, the Japanese position on the Diaoyu Islands have strong political and military considerations. Diaoyu Islands in the “first island chain” an important position in China and Japan, south east of the intersection of the sea. Japan’s island defense line of the 1000 sea miles a sensitive point, because it allows the Japanese Self-Defense Force to promote more than 300 km southwest. Sea of ??Japan to contain China’s rise in strategic layout, the Diaoyu Islands is undoubtedly an important piece. (LIU Yan Source: International Online – News of the World)
