“The Biggest Show Of Force Since World War II”: Japan To Send Its Largest Warship To South China Sea
- Why is Japan getting involved militarily in the South China Sea where they do not have any territorial disputes with China? They have been ordered to do so by US-Pentagram. It is provocation to ignite the Greater Asia War as part of WW3. Japan is a colony, a vassal state, of the western Illuminati.

The tension over the disputed territory in the South China Sea is about to escalate to another level: according to a Reuters report, Japan is preparing to to dispatch its largest warship on a three-month tour through the South China Sea beginning in May, in “its biggest show of naval force in the region since World War Two.”
The 249 meter-long (816.93 ft) Izumo is as large as Japan’s World War Two-era carriers and can operate up to nine helicopters. It resembles the amphibious assault carriers used by U.S. Marines, but lacks their well deck for launching landing craft and other vessels.
While China claims almost all the disputed waters despite the regular complaints of other nations in the region, and its growing military presence has fueled concern in Japan and the West, with the United States holding regular air and naval patrols to ensure freedom of navigation, so far Japan’s territorial claims have involved the Senkaku island chain in the East China Sea; that however appears to be changing as Japan seeks to stake a military presence in the contested region.
