Would Japanese nukes stop North Korean aggression? Tokyo taboo weakens amid NK testing
By Christopher Wallace Published August 02, 2017 Fox News



As North Korea advances its nuclear ambitions with yet another test of a long-range missile system, the once unthinkable has started to go mainstream in Japan: a discussion of the idea that Japan needs to have a nuclear deterrent of its own to survive in an increasingly unstable region.


oday, experts tell Fox News the idea that Japan can and should possess nuclear weapons on its own soil, whether they are domestically developed or provided by the U.S., is no longer the exclusive realm of Japanese extremists.

"There are some Japanese security analysts who are starting to think about stationing nuclear weapons in Japan and they are mainstream. That is new in Japan," said Mark Fitzpatrick, Washington Executive Director of the International Institute for Strategic Studies and author of the book “Asia's Latent Nuclear Powers.”

Corr believes nuclear weapons would actually stabilize the region. Such weapons, Corr said, would have a deterrent effect on China, for example, from taking territory in and around the Senkaku Islands.


Japanese nuclear weapons also would deter Russia, which has taken "increasingly aggressive actions in Japan's airspace in recent years," not to mention North Korea, he said.

And they could neutralize the North Korean menace.

"It would restore some balance in East Asian Security. It would be a form of retaliation that does not escalate, but actually de-escalates tensions in East Asia," Corr added.

But Acton said that allies like Japan and South Korea are nevertheless worried about the Trump administration's dedication to so-called extended deterrence, or the protective shield of the American nuclear umbrella over allies, not just the U.S. homeland.

"One gets into a problem where allies no longer trust that guarantee," Acton told Fox News.


"The democracies and U.S.-aligned countries are playing by the rules," he said, "it would be unwise to let all the autocracies and China-aligned countries obtain nuclear weapons, and deny that deterrent to our democratic allies."

He argues that time has come in East Asia.


日本の核武装について、軍拡競争で、地域が不安定になるという論者もいるが、使ったら両方共破滅するので抑止力として地域の安定につながるのだという論者もいる。

中国と国際ルールを守らない独裁国家らが核武装して、国際ルールを守る民主主義国家が抑止力としての核兵器を持てないのはおかしいやないけ、と。

その通りですね。

記事の評価とは違って、日本ではまだ、タブーに近いと思うけど、なにかあれば、パッと変わるのが日本でもある。

核アレルギー脱却するためにも、普段から、核武装の有用性を説いておく人たちが必要である。

It's not Trump administration that the allies can no longer trust.

The " regime so brutal to its own people – an outlaw state run by a despotic ruler who has death camps eerily similar to Nazi Germany – is now armed with weapons that can kill millions of Americans. "


Any rational American President would not sacrifice millions of Americans over Tokyo.

We can't expect U.S. to protect us anymore.

Therefore, Japan needs to have a nuclear deterrent of its own to survive.



アメリカはロサンゼルスを犠牲にして日本を護らない。
いざとなるとアメリカは日本を護ってくれない。
中国は拡張主義、北朝鮮は予測不可能な攻撃性を顕示している。
日本が生き残るためには、核武装するしかないーーーというわけである。
