Japanese Coast Guard Ship Rams Intruding Chinese Boat and Chases it Away

On Oct. 27, a Japanese Coast Guard ship is ramming and driving away a Chinese ship carrying members of "Treaty-Defending Committee" from Hong Kong, who tried to land on Daoyutai(aka Senkaku) Island, a disputed island in E. China Sea. Chinese came into an area Japan claims as its territorial waters, but turned back after sustaining heavy damage to their ship.

The Japanese are definitely getting more aggressive. About time. If you want to see the Chinese Politburo come down with a collective case of diahrrea, let Japan announce it's building nukes.

We should simply announce we are giving a nuclear weapon to Japan for every nuke we think North Korea has, with the proviso that if North Korea verifiably eliminates all of it's nuclear weapons, Japan will give them back.

That would get the ChiComms attention!

Trying to whittle away at another country's sovereign territory (which China has a well establish record of doing) is equivalent to speeding?

What everybody understands, but nobody talks about: 90 days to nuclear (all it takes is the word from on high).

Everybody knows that things roll down-hill, and so what would it take do ya think?

There won't be a peep for the first 45 days (except for that "satellite launch" test inexplicably crashes onto Pyonyang), and a couple of sunken boats.

A Japanese Admiral was quoted after Pearl Harbor that "Japan had awakened a sleeping giant." N.Korea and China are now waking a sleeping giant.

The description of the Japanese vessel as being from their 'Coast Guard' brings a question to my mind - is there a Japanese 'Coast Guard' as well as the 'Self-Defense Force'? Or is that just their naval component?

Guess it's time we (those of us on FR who don't know) started learning more about Japan's forces and capabilities...

The Japanese Coast Guard is not part of the Self Defense Forces, which are under the Japan Defense Agency:

Instead, the Coast Guard is part of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transportation (MLIT). Here's a summary pdf from MLIT's website. (Give it a minute, it seems to load very slowly on my machine.)

The JDA website in English (sorry, it's always very, very slow.)

The MLIT's website in English.

For what it is worth, the Japanese Coast Guard also sank a North Korean spy ship a few years ago.

Japan Coast Guard is under the oversight of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. It is independent of JSDF.

Someone from the Administration simply has to announce to China: "China, you have a problem with a nuclear N. Korea - take care of it. If you don't, we will permit Japan, S. Korea, and Tiawan to acquire nuclear weapons to stabilize East Asia."

Nor I. Remember when Germany sent their first troops out of the country, I think when they joined the forces in the Balkans? That one gave some folks pause, too.

I don't think we'd be seeing the same sort of nationalist fervor that led to the 1930s.

This isn't our grandfathers' Axis Powers... ;>)

I wouldn't wish the Japanese brand of aggression on my worst enemy.

No it isn't. The "Japanese brand of aggression" ceased to exist over sixty (60) years ago.

The Japanese are rightfully repelling incursions into THEIR territory by an IMPERIAL and expansionist China. In the map below, look where Taiwan is located and note the strategic importance of Senkaku Island.

He didn't crash into you, he didn't wreck you, he 'rubbed' you! And 'rubbin' is racin'.

Actually, this is called 'shouldering' and I think that many Navies abandoned the practice.

I don't doubt for a second that that BS Chinese "committee" is wall-to-wall PLA men and BuDer operations types.

That Chinese skipper can start worrying if the Coast Guardsman breaks out the old IJN Rising Sun ensign -- the sunburst pattern. Then it's on. But in the photo, the cutter is flying the civilian meatball flag.

The JMSA (Japan Maritime Safety Agency, aka Japan Coast Guard) is a civilian maritime law-enforcement and rescue agency, not a military organization.

(Our United States Coast Guard is likewise an arm of the Department of Homeland Security, not a military force. In time of war, the Coast Guard assumes the status of a military force and its administration is transferred to the Department of Defense.)

It's important to note that strictly speaking Japan has no military forces of any kind. Under Article 9 of the Japanese constitution (which we wrote), military forces are forbidden to Japan forever. Such armed forces are may be maintained (Japan has four) are by law "police agencies", and may only be employed for law enforcement, including the protection of the nation's legal boundaries. Thus all Japanese armed forces are de jure "homeland security" forces, and all armed forces members are de jure civilians -- employees of the Japanese civil service -- not sworn soldiers.

What the article doesn't mention is that Chinese from Taiwan also sent ships on this trip. The fishing boat from Hong Kong was dilapidated and probably designed to be beached on the isle or rammed, in this case.

BTW, Diaoyutai belongs to ROC, Taiwan. The Japanese are just sacrificing their ships on somebody else's land. LOL.

Its no coincidence that the Chinese boat is the funky, rusty one and the Japanese boat is the pristine one.
