Hello all, this is my first post in a couple of years, i got banned for back talking a moderator about our new frigates. DON'T DO THAT. My boy has since joined the Army and is training to be a K9 handler and he really wants to be assigned in Japan. With the rise of China, do yall think it is time for Japan to unleash itself and become a global power again? They have the tech and know how to fight. A blue water Japanese Navy may calm China's ambitions. It seems the F35 carriers Japan is putting together has had a profound effect and is upsetting China.
