Security Of Taiwan And Senkaku Islands


Recommended Posts

Russia will never willingly give up the Kuriles. It will posture over it because its useful to do so. But you only have to look at a map, the potential of those islands being used for ASW forces or some form of GIUK line would effectively leave Russian forces bottled up in a war. Its also going to hobble the utility of SSBN's parked in the pacific fleet.

 

Id like to believe otherwise, but under Putin, all you will have is your nose tweaked. He will never give anything without getting more in return, he has proved this time and again.

How about... what about not goal post shifting? Are you already that desparate to find an escape and come out ahead by coming out in impression points?

 

I'm just reminding you about consequences of playing this games in past. I do not think it is any need to replay history.

I'm afraid you are overestimating the importance of our chats here :)

 

 

 

 

if to be so vulnerable to the Japanese PM suggesting that the Russian people can continue to live on the islands and work side by side with Japanese people. As part of resolving the territorial issue, I find that proposition rather positive. It doesn't mean it has to be liked, Russia can of course decline and remain firm on giving back only the two smaller islands. It is so obviously Russia turning this into a big deal in Russia, if it is indeed the big deal that you claim it to be.

 

If your political decision makers are thinking this way -it is indication of their experts on Russian affairs incompetent (or political leaders not consulting with experts). Of course, we can't rule out their aim was not agreement but derailing talks....

 

 

Yeah sure, always playing it cool, similar approach you took to Damian. He made comments really harsh level comments but by provocation due to you playing it cool and using smiley faces in an inappropriate matter. Also Damian was still in his mid-20s so a bone could be given to him.

 

When at all possible, I avoid chats with you.

 

Well if you say so yeah [/sarc] Any failure in progress with Russia are plus points for the Balitcs, Poland, the Ukraine, the UK, etc.

 

As long as the Putin team keeps enjoying a nominal GDP that is the same size as ROK's [/sarc] :closedeyes:

So what if they never do. Japanese position is the Japanese position. A position will be taken regardless of Putin. If he doesn'6t like that then tough luck for him. We're only talking about a max of 4 of the southern ones. His loss to keep Russia economically pinned. Roscomos has already taken a big hit, to the detriment to the population. More rigged elections for the Putin team!

Japan as benevolent neighbour is still trying to live down the Greater Asian CoProsperity Sphere. Japan cannot set a course independent of the US with the PRC at its door. Japan is the ideal bogeyman for China and the worst ally Taiwan could hope for.

I still dont see what the Russians can be offered for the South Kuriles. The sane applies to all territories that Japan is disputing. Indeed with Korean rappochment, things are going to get worse for Tokyo.

Isn't it what any political leader is supposed to deliver to his country when it comes to international relations business? What is the sense of the deal, if it is not bringing " more in return"?

I'm sorry - what is Roscomos? May be you mean RoscoSmos?

Yeah, CPTPP, or before that business and such still. International competition still will exists. The only way to satisfy those kinds of arguments is to be a loser or be a communists where everyone gets a fair piece regardless of quantity and quality of work put in. But even with that said, ASEAN in general seems quite comfortable with Japan. Definitely more so than China. If Japan is the worse kind of ally for Taiwan, better move to Taiwan and start campaigning there on the behalf of the CCP. What Russia gets for finding a settlement with Japan is obvious for those that aren't stuck to Russian style aggression.

It's interesting how you are mixing opposing statements in one post. If we believe in "International competition", then if investing in Russia is\will be profitable for foreign companies, then Japan companies will be among those investing in Russia anyway (completing with others for best position) - see for example Komatsu plant in Yaroslavl. No need to give away territory for that

 

New Komatsu repair facility in Magadan

And if Japan investments are dependent on territory deal, than all this talks about fair game and international competition are useless.

You're delusional.

 

 

I'd have thought the opposite was true. But you do disapprove.

 

 

By believing in playing Russia against China you're just as delusional as many Western 'experts' who believe the same. Those may be the rogue states, but their leaders aren't dumb. They have no other way than to hang together, or else they will hang separately.

 

 

Now, look here. The few troops in the area are second class. They're not front-line caliber, not at all. Do you understand?

Somehow missed this point, so let me reply to it now for the record: Actually any deal between Japan (or any Western country) and Russi is in fact deal with Russian corrupt elite collaborated to West - and, by definition, can't be in Russian national interests, unless this corrupt elite is forces somehow to follow Russian national interests. So, first and foremost, no deal is good for Russia as nation and state - at least untill we are sure our elite is no more dependent on West. If it is also good for Poland &Co - let it be it (but since this countries consider it zero sum game, it is hardly so).

P.S. Another time Hirofumi Sugizaki from Kyodo News asking Russian officials, this time Foreign minister Lavrov, about Russian position on Kuril islands (as for me, he is looking disappointed)

Russian fishermen complained to Russian Gov about actions by Japan fishing boats in Russian territorial waters near Kuril islands (Kunashir Strait), with up to 20+ fishing boats are preventing Russian ships from normal fishing process while scattering unmarked nets etc.
