This is coolbert:

"Si vis pacem, para bellum". "If you want peace, prepare for war".

Japan prepares? As not has been in thirty years!

From Japan Today and the tip from Freeper.

1. "GSDF troops begin nationwide drills for 1st time in 30 years"

"The Japan Ground Self-Defense Force [GSDF] on Wednesday started nationwide exercises involving all units for the first time in about 30 years in an attempt to boost deterrence and strengthen its capabilities amid China's ramped-up regional assertiveness"

2. "SEA SHOWDOWN Japan ‘preparing for war’ in first major military drills for 30 YEARS as tensions rage with China over disputed islands"

"CHINA has claimed Japan is 'preparing for war' as it stages its first major military exercised for nearly 30 years"

Not merely Taiwan or disputed territory by China in the South China Sea at stake. Islands the sovereignty as contested by China and Japan also a hot topic. Thirty years indeed a long time between a major exercise of this sort.

See previous blog entries as pertinent to the topic:

Consider also:

"All men are brothers, like the seas throughout the world; So why do winds and waves clash so fiercely everywhere?" - - Hirohito.

Well? Why?
