In 2011, a massive tsunami hit the Japanese coast, causing hundreds of billions of dollars in damage and thousands of casualties. Almost everyone was completely taken by surprise by the onslaught. Someone who wasn’t surprised was Koji Minoura, a Japanese paleontologist who had figured out this was going to happen years in advance. How did […]

MILITARY threats have been made by China and Russia towards Japan by sending aircraft and naval vessels into Japanese territory as the dispute over the South China Sea rages on.

Tensions have been rising as China has become more aggressive in its territorial claims in the South China Sea.
The Communist State has disputes with five separate countries over several islands and waters in the South China Sea that they claim to control.
At the heart of the feud between China and Japan is a dispute over the Senkaku Islands.
The Senkaku Islands are a group of uninhabited islands under Japanese control, but that are claimed by China.
Beijing calls the land the Diaoyu Islands.
Richard Weitz, a senior fellow and the director of the Center for Political-Military Analysis at the Hudson Institute, has explained that China wants “to enforce their claims” by ensuring foreign planes acknowledge its capability to control airspace and the waters of contested territory.
He also said that Russia is motivated by “monitoring US military activity (more…)

Usually, when the government agencies start talking “impending quakes”, you need to be on the lookout because they’re covering their asses against what they consider to be a significant threat.

Yesterday, we published a report about an incident involving South Korea, Japan and China that nearly escalated into a full-blown skirmish, as Japan and South Korea were forced to order intercepts of Chinese military aircraft as a squadron of fighters and bombers flew over the waters between South Korea and Japan – an area that has historically been off limits to Chinese aircraft. It wasn’t until after the Chinese aircraft had dispersed that Chinese military commanders disclosed that the intrusion was part of a “military exercise.”
When China’s South Korean counterparts called to ask why they hadn’t been given advanced warning of the drills, the Chinese authority in charge reportedly responded that the element of surprise was part of the drill.
In recent months, Beijing has insisted that it needs to prepare its military in the event of an armed conflict on the Korean peninsula – an excuse for bulking up its military presence at an uncomfortably close proximity to its geopolitical archrival, Japan.
In response, Japanese (more…)
According to the country’s defense minister, the missiles will be used to defend naval ships and possibly for island defense.
CNN reports Japan will buy a few kinds of missiles: Long Range Anti-Ship Missiles and Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missiles from Lockheed Martin as well as Joint Strike Missiles from Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace.
The defense minister didn’t mention North Korea by name, but the Hermit Kingdom is increasingly posing a threat.

War: North Korea Fires Its Most POWERFUL Missile Ever Towards Japan As President Trump Promises To “Handle” The Situation
In yet another apparent attempt at igniting a full-scale war, North Korea has conducted a test of what many believe to be the countries most powerful ICBM ever launched, with the missile landing off the coast of the United States close ally Japan.
In response, South Korea conducted their own test-launch while leaders from the United States and Japan also condemned the renewed nuclear aggression.
“North Korea fired an unidentified ballistic missile early this morning from Pyongsong, South Pyongan, to the east direction. South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff is analyzing more details of the missile with the US side,” said an official at South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.
South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said the South Korean military carried out a “precision missile strike drill” just minutes after North Korea’s missile launch.
The precision missile strike matched the flight distance of the North Korean missile and landed in waters off the east coast of South Korea.

NORTH Korea could launch a missile test in the “next few days”, Japan has warned.

Mon, Nov 27, 2017
North Korea has been threatening another launch following a series of provocative tests earlier this year.
Two missiles flew directly over Japanese territory, terrifying citizens and sparking a round of worldwide condemnations and sanctions.
And now despot Kim Jong-un could be set for yet another test – despite ever-strengthening warnings from his Western rivals.
One Japanese diplomat warned today radio signals detected from the hermit state indicated another test is close.
Japan’s Kyodo news agency said the detection had been confirmed by government officials.
One official told them: “There is a possibility of missiles launches in the next few days.”
They said the test could be part of North Korea’s army’s winter training regime.
