The US Teams Up The Second Front In Far East

The US Teams Up The Second Front In Far East

Illustrative Image

Japanese authorities are again talking about the “occupied” territories and the need to renew the country’s military power. Such developments are dictated by several aspects.

History is a good place to start. Japan’s desire for revenge runs through the 20th and 21st centuries. At the moment, Japan does not feel that its interests have been fully realized strategically, economically and militarily. Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has continued the rhetoric of his predecessors in defending the Kuril Islands and wanting to increase his influence in the region. After his tour to Asia and Europe, he had a conversation with the leaders of the United States and Australia, who were not satisfied with his attempts to get India to condemn Russia for its military operation. Subsequently, Kishida pressed Indonesia as well, but with U.S. interests in mind. This cooperation can be characterized as barter: the U.S. will create an “Eastern NATO” counterpart of QUAD and AUKUS, while Japan will take the lead in this hierarchy.

Political scientist and doctor of history Anatoly Koshkin explained why Japan has become so active in its foreign policy.

Koshkin believes that the United States is in no hurry to open the “Second Front” in the East. Even White House press secretary Jen Psaki said that U.S. President Joe Biden would travel to Tokyo and Seoul to negotiate with countries to support Ukraine. Most likely, this will affect China’s attempts to return Taiwan to the country.

As the second argument, the expert noted the reluctance of U.S. ground troops to participate in military operations against large countries. The maximum that can be expected is the continuation of arms supplies to Taiwan and an increase of the military contingent in Japan.

Anatoly Koshkin also doubts that Japanese forces will provide any assistance other than logistical or food assistance, since Japan objectively has no army and Japanese society has a negative attitude towards entering into any conflicts.

The next assumption the expert noted is the unwillingness of the large bloc of Japanese elites to worsen relations with Russia. This is primarily dictated by the possible negative effects on the Japanese economy and the contradictions in the interests of security. Although the first part of this argument can be challenged, since the Russian-Japanese trade turnover is not that significant.

Tokyo hoped that after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian government would make concessions to territorial demands in exchange for the promise of investment, loans, and economic cooperation. But since the Russian position on territorial issues was firm, the Japanese political leadership resumed its former anti-Soviet and now anti-Russian rhetoric.

The expert singled out the escalation of sanctions against Russia and the desire to involve ASEAN countries in the American policy plan to paralyze Russia’s economic activities in the region as the last argument.

On the one hand, Anatoly Koshkin’s arguments look very significant. On the other hand, one can look at the situation in the Asia-Pacific Region from a broader perspective. The U.S. is at least already preparing a bridgehead for the Eastern Front with the help of Japan. It would seem that this bloc is directed against China. But some contradictions arise: the U.S. declared a trade war against China back in 2018 and threatened to start military actions in the South China Sea, but in fact, five years have passed without any military operations; China has intensified military patrols in the Senkaku (Diaoyudao) Islands and the Taiwan area, while the U.S. again limited itself to threats; the United States has not imposed sanctions on China because of its neutral position on Ukraine and gas purchases from Russia through private companies. All these aspects may indicate that the coalition created by the US is not directed against the PRC, but the Russian Federation. The success of these U.S. plans will depend on Russia’s actions in the region, Japan’s ability to influence ASEAN countries, and India’s willingness to abandon its policy of non-alignment (which is unlikely).

The WAR was just a diversion caused by a madman. Anglo-Saxons. German ethnicity is prevalent in the US. The Great Game is to get Russia on its knees, and control its resources. If the West gains access to Russia’s oil and gas, then they can start screwing China. It is important that China does not allow Russia to fall.

ppp

It is important that **Russia** does not allow Russia to fall. Enough half measures.

Jens Holm.

That makes no sense to me. We already can buy anything we want in Russia to world market prices. It should be fine both ways for me.

You write Russian propaganda crap.

We also has no intensions for screwing China. We want them to behave better here and there. The Chinese make the cake to share bigger.

Jens Holm.

Things are not as in 1945.

They are with us in western Economics doing very well. The difference is in what they use their power to and for.

Simple maps tell normal people that. None of those two has been in war ever since. We in Denmark knows our neighbors very well. The German has changed and is mch better for the whole europe.

Its no preussian. Its no Nazi. They also are divided in the United States of Germany.

Ashok Varma

The NATO war against Russia is part of the Anglo-Zionist deluded agenda of “global domination” and start a major war on the Asian mainland. The devious Anglo intent as usual to create a conflict between India and China, so that millions of innocent Asians are killed and our booming economies die. Hopefully, Indian and Chinese leaders are smart enough to know how these racist Anglo trash and Zionist parasites think. That is why it is also imperative that the NATO warmongers don’t succeed against Russia. JAI RUS!

Why Germany? Germany has nothing to gain from a western-Russian conflict. We are highly dependent on Russian fossile fuel and even historically the small part of Eastern Prussia nowadays being part of Russia (Kaliningrad/Königsberg) is far away from our modern borders while the vast majority of lost territory lies within modern Poland (Silesia, South-Eastern Prussia, Pomerania, Western Prussia). Almost the entity of the German population has been expelled from there after WW2…

So – in contrast to Japan – Germans shouldn’t have any interest in a conflict with Russia.

It’s all due the ambitions of our western allies and those of our political elites entwined with them.

Sorry, wrong place. Answer was directed to William White.

In WW2 Japan was basically pushed to war by the US (embargoes) and before set up by Britain. Britain had encouraged Japanese ambition by leaking aircraft carrier info, giving initial successes (Singapore). Very similar strategy to treatment of Germany. Both in order to crush them later (with the help of the US). The situation is different now, and I agree that Germany shouldn’t be antagonistic towards Russia. A fair partnership would be good. Despite the terribly one-sided media coverage, there is little appetite for war in the German population. Our excuses for politicians are, however, largely simply part of a doomsday machine.

Jens Holm.

Thats a relative. USA was not alone. So many demanded Japan to stop its expansion. They already has the Whole Korea and made more then the Mancko China.

They here also was in war with Russia.

The only stopper was USA as big tradepartner. It was not provocative but a defencive attitude. It seemes Yiu forget USA already has big unimplyment.

Its tempting for me to go to Stalin. Many would say, that Hitler could not have attacked the whole western Europe with no communist help.

Next Hirtler attacked USSR as well. And we saw the Germans needed food, iraon, coal, nikel to their tanks and a lot of other things.

TopGum

They don’t have any interest, beside the dream of EU (which is basically rum by Germany) to be in charge when dealing with Russia. So far they overestimated their leverage and got themselves into a pickle. EU is hurting more from “sanctions” than Russia. Also they finally realized, that without Russian support the EU can’t maintain its living standard, which is BTW way too high. EU countries are spending more money than what they take in, therefore they all drown in debt and will not be able to increase any rates to even zero. For now they still have -0,5%, which is the opposite how money lending works. They are trapped and they still manage to worsen their situation every day.

None here believe that. We anytime can ramain the same and can decline a lttle form a very high level.

4 countries has just decided tomake the bíggest windfarm in the whole world. Its Germany, Belgium, Holland and Denmark.

So we do something about it. Thats because Our systems are frelxible for needed changes.

And Yes we are very determinant about Ukraine should have the right to decide things themself as any free country.

UN support that. Many support them in economics and handling refugees. 40 countries support it by all kinds of military equipment as well.

I dont see Our livingstandard is too high. We actually do try to replace quantity with quality by recycling. There will come more initiatives.

The main problem for many parts of the world is low productivity. By that they has less to share. Just as the many poor in Russia their Goverment and themself has to make changes in their minds. If not we should not help them.

We are not rulers unless those sountries or parts of them demand to be colonies again. None can make horses into zebras by painting them only.

Russia think they can do something semilar like that in Ukraine. But they cant even devellop themself.

You should decline with us – the ones still alive – in toatal destruction with us. Hip Hip Hurah. People in Ukraine dont feet themself putting potaoes up in their behinds.

Germany is shooting itself in the foot. I don’t understand why they go along with it. NATO Europe’s philosophy is to keep US in, Russia out and Germany down.

Jens Holm.

Why dont You stop that. As long as its not Your foot. So far their GDP pr capita is twice as much as Russia.

USA is in the western economics as partners too.

As long as You not even try to undserstand Our systems the term understand is correct. Germany is not kept down.

Ppp

I should stop with what? Are you arguing that the current situation is good somehow for Germany / Germans? I’d like to see you elaborate on that. US agenda is to de-industrialize Germany. If you are a green maybe this is good thing for you.

Let’s just ignore for the sake of argument that GDP is a terrible metric and that Germany is occupied by a foreign power since the end of ww2.

There qwe go again. It of course was Nato, which invaded Ukraine. Its alos Our fault we have helped them to defend themself.

As usual I look for links about zionist being there and all over too. STOP IT. Who has told You there is a Nobel price in lying???

No wonder if people now and then look down at You too. Respect is both ways. Try wikipedia and look up for, what respect is.

We can expect to see a 60+ retired people battalion protecting Japan from China. May be they will send all the retired Japanese people to the claimed islands to create settlements and create a humanitarian PR when China tries to clear them.

They have somehow to solve this. When I grow old I kind of expect to have a combined toilet and shower dressing and undresing me as well.

Here in Denmark a part of the solution is to let in Young ones. They makes children and in next genation they educate because they now has the facilities to it made by Our system.

That does not solve everything here, but its a fact some countries are overpopulated with Young people of no use. Suddenly they becomes important istead of leftoves.

Who is doing what? Your comment contradicts itself. Because of Russia’s nuclear arsenal no one will take Russia apart. I want to have cake every day, but I can’t. Wanting something and actually getting something is not the same. EU said they don’t want to pay for Russian gas supplies in Rubles but they now have to. It seems Russia is taking EU apart. EU has no unity and they are very much at disarray on many topics. Just look at Poland and Hungary as they snub EU on many disagreements. People are suffering the most. The inability to suppress inflation will put millions more into poverty. EU is becoming the new ghetto of the world, next to the US. US cities are overrun by homeless and drug addicts. FB and YT are deleting information about this. Use alternate social media to see what is happening there. EU/US are publicly blaming Russia for their inflation now. That was obvious and planed, hence the whole Ukraine mess.

Jens Holm.

Having more sides then one or two is no contradiction.

The rest is a very invinsible side.

The boycut also is many more things then oil and food for the world and fx EU.

One thing is correct. EU has delayed the energy replacement too much. Holland, Belgium, Germany and DEnmark has just decided to make the biggest wind farm ever in the North Sea. It shoud have been done 10 years ago. It takes about 10 years to make.

Jens Holm.

But e do have that fear by the desperado in Moskva. In the other hand we are not willinly being hostages.

I will remind You and many we can do exact the same threat but has not. That might be the difference and why we have tryed to keep Minsk 2.

Such things need to be addressed. Russia did illegally occupy Japanese territory and that has never been resolved. In view, especially of China’s ambitions, it is understandable that Japan would strengthen their defense capabilities. Hopefully, this will be accompanied by more NATO-independent policies. While Russia is rightly concerned about NATO agression, that doesn’t make everything Russia does are has done automatically right. But again, Japan’s main concern is China, not Russia. It will won’t supplies rather than start a war.

Japan started the pacific war and was aiming to expand by “seizing” other territories. Don’t use words like “illegal” when others did start “illegal” actions first. Once rules were broken there is no such thing as illegal or legitimate. You start a bar fight, you deal with the consequences, even if this means that you get your ass kicked. There is no whining about anything afterwards.

That’s totally crap. Japan broke its treaty with Russia by stealing all of Sakhalin. In 1945, the USSR took Sakhalin and all the Kuril Islands. Japan has nothing to whinge about.

It was also agreed to by the USA and Japan ( after their defeat). Now they want it back. What can anyone say, excuses for war…

TZVI

The USSR declared war and took it. They also defeated the Japanese Imperial army in Manchuria. USSR invaded 3 months after Germany Surrendered as agreed with the USA. This allowed for an independent China.

“The Yalta declaration gave Moscow back southern Sakhalin, which Japan had seized during the Russo-Japanese War in 1904-05, as well as the Kurile Island chain to which Russia had renounced its claim in 1875….With the Treaty of San Francisco, which formally ended the war in the Pacific, Japan ceded all claims to Sakhalin, leaving the island under Soviet control even though Moscow had declined to sign the treaty…”
