Russian-Chinese Naval Maneuvers around Japan (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 10/26/21 2:40 am)

Last Monday, 18 October, ten ships of the Chinese and Russian Navies practically circumnavigated Japan with a menacing passage through the Tsugaru Strait, a mere 12 nautical miles wide, between the islands of Hokkaido and Honshu toward the open Pacific.  They then returned, on Friday 22 October, to the East China Sea, passing through the Strait of Osumi between Kyushu and the Osumi islands.

Under the pressure from the Empire, Japan has declared its territorial waters up to only 3 miles (all other countries have 12 miles, plus 200 miles of exclusive economic zone/EEZ). Such an imposition is due to the official permit for US Navy ships to transit with nuclear weapons without violating the international agreements by which no officially nuclear nation can have nuclear weapons in an officially non-nuclear foreign country.

It is for the purpose of "respecting" said international agreements that the existence of 40-60 nuclear weapons in the US military bases of Ghedi (Brescia) and Aviano (Pordenone) in Italy is kept a "secret."

Therefore the Russian-Chinese armed passage, even if a blatant provocation, was within the rules of the International Laws of the Sea.

But beware: Japan is sick and tired of being a colony of the Empire, and possible provocations by Russia and Communist China are pushing Japan more and more into becoming a powerful armed nation with nuclear weapons. The most recent Chinese-Russia maneuver probably was decided to dissuade Japan from joining one way or another the AUKUS Pact, but the move was probably self-defeating

JE comments:  Sailing an entire armada between Japan's two largest islands may be legal, but it was undeniably a nose-thumbing.  Has Japan issued an official response to this provocation?  Japan's non-navy "navy" is already the fourth largest in the world.  The topic of Japan's "re-armament" (it's already heavily armed) comes up on WAIS from time to time.  What is the latest?
