WASHINGTON – Despite what has been described as a “pacifist” constitution implemented following World War II, Japan is considering rearming to offset what is perceived in the East Asia region as a more assertive China, according to a report from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

That nation is throwing around its military weight to enforce its hegemony over the East and South China Seas.

Almost all the countries in the region are affected by China’s new assertiveness in the region, including Vietnam, the Philippines and even India, in addition to Japan. All have open and somewhat confrontational disputes with Beijing over jurisdiction over islands and potential maritime oil and gas resources.

Could be good as balance to counter China's growing influence in the region however the increase of conflict is credible to these actions around the world we are seeing build up of Arms and Tech and people say the cold war ended; not by policy thats for sure just new strategies but same aims and goals, History is doomed to repeat I thought we ere meant to learn from the past, or is it that its a case of we Know where we went wrong last so do it another way ?

Just thoughts above that is all, I'm not trying to dictate to anyone

The Asia pasific region is now the fastest growing arms market in the world. the build up
isn't near complete though. china still has at least two more indigiouse carriers to biuld
before it can really stamp domination on the area. playing away from home is always a
bitch in asia.
If the japaniese continue to be horrased by the chinese over those islands no dobt they will expand
to keep up. so will the philliapiens and so will veitnam and india. the question is how many balls
can they all keep up in the air until someone drops one. who else indonesia is also getting
a little twichy, but they have a deal with the chines to produce medium range bulistic missiles,
so i guess we can see who side they are on.
The US will probably stand with the Japanies on this to augment their asian deployments.
the US navy will be spread out pretty thin and with 60+ chines subs bobbing about the pacific
Japanies military expansion would be an ideal way to limit the chines empiral aspiration.

I am really tired of hearing the 'China threat theory' that has been propagated by the US and tossed around on ATS all the time.


Firstly, the Chinese army is no match for the US army. Although, technologically speaking, we may be inching closer to the US and the PLA only hand-picks the best soldiers and make them undergo very tough training, the US has much more experience because they just love going to war. I can't think of a major war involving China since Deng Xiaoping became president.

Secondly, China has too many internal problems to send armies to war. There are protests and riots that need to be dealt with, there are poor peasants who live in extreme poverty, there is the very serious problem of corruption, and so on.

The Western media want to smear China as expansionist and a 'threat' because they are afraid that China will overtake the West. That way, surrounding countries will turn away from China (well, that's already happened) and China will face diplomatic difficulties. By isolating China, the US can maintain their status as the sole superpower and continue their hegemonic and imperialist behaviour.

What some people from the West has to understand is that China's peaceful development is not a zero-sum game. China's development will not cause the US's and Europe's decline. China will never invade another country to gain territory, not with all the pressing problems inside the country, and there's still a long way for China to go in order to overtake the US in terms of military and economic strength.

never say never I'm open minded when it comes to things like this in my opinion every country is a threat to another its just the way things go for example my neighbour doesn't know if I'm plotting against him nor do I know if he is doing the same, but we get along anyway

Unfortunately, China's neighbors are not convinced that China's rise will be peaceful.

China invaded Tibet in 1949, had a border war with India in 1965, a border war with the USSR in 1969 and invaded Vietnam in 1979.

China also claims the territories of 20 countries.

China has territorial claims to nearly 20 countries



One can only hope that China will be a benign superpower, but it isn't looking good.

The ROC has about that many. Do you think Taiwan is a threat?


As I said, China is simply not powerful to be a threat. Even if we wanted to be a threat, the numbers say that we can't.

Any country that hold NBC weapons are dangerous even western ones so I'm jumping on the wagon of Syria bad Iraq was the right move and all that I bet Saudi's got some hardware but because of certain advantages of having Saudi supplies no one says nothing, China's main disadvantage is internal with corruption if that gets stamped out then you will have a very strong well organised fully functional military one that if I were in Asia I would be dropping Bricks and they have Ties everywhere they are the biggest US debt holders they have a lot going for them as for the communism they are highly influence by capitalist consumerism there is a lot that we don't know.....

However thats not to say I'm right you live there by the sounds of it so sorry I mean no offence by it just putting my view across
