Hundreds of people turned up at the Yokosuka Naval Base in Japan this weekend to protest not only new security legislation but the arrival of the nuclear-powered USS Ronald Reagan as part of Japan’s new military expansion plan. The deployment of the Reagan is part of Washington DC’s “Pacific Pivot”.
In discussing the coming protest, military analyst Michael Burns commented that Japan’s plan to join with the US against a potential war with China would send Tokyo “up in flames”:
“Shinzo Abe is determined to ally his military interests with the United States and become a front-line state in attempt to encircle China and to put itself on a war footing, and this is causing deep, deep anxiety amongst the Japanese people,” Burns told Press TV on Friday. (source)
Some have speculated that the US is already silently at war with China over its purposeful currency devaluation, meaning what we are seeing now in Japan is just more maneuvering for when the cold war goes hot.
