Japan will beef up airborne patrols of disputed islands in the East China Sea, an official said today, in response to increased Chinese activity in the area. New crew members will operate two extra jets that will be deployed in the next 12 months to strengthen patrols around the Senkaku Islands, according to a spokesman from the Japan Coast Guard. "We'll boost our aviation crew by bringing in 60 more members," the spokesman told AFP. Japan will deploy two Falcon 2000LXS jets this fiscal year and one more plane next year to allow a "24-hour patrol system" to monitor the disputed islands, known in China as the Diaoyus. The move comes after Japan spotted a Chinese nuclear-powered submarine in disputed waters early this year. The uninhabited islets are at the centre of a festering row between Tokyo and Beijing, which is also involved in a widening dispute with several Southeast Asian countries over islands in the South China Sea. The Japanese government has long complained about China's ..

On choppy waters: Why USS Theodore Roosevelt's presence in South China Sea will increase tension 10.4.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
In a span of 20 minutes, 20 F-18 fighter jets took off and landed on the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier, in a powerful display of military precision and efficiency. The nuclear-powered warship, leading a carrier strike group, was conducting what the US military called routine training in the disputed South China Sea on Tuesday, headed for a port call in the Philippines, a defence treaty ally. The United States is not alone in carrying out naval patrols in the strategic waterway, where Chinese, Japanese and some Southeast Asian navies operate, possibly increasing tensions and risking accidents at sea. "We have seen Chinese ships around us," Rear Admiral Steve Koehler, the strike group commander, told a small group of reporters on board the three-decade-old carrier. "They are one of the navies that operate in the South China Sea but I would tell you that we have seen nothing but professional work out of the ships we have encountered." Navies in the western Pacific, including China and nine ...

Pak Army has perfected art of 'non-coup coup': Haqqani 9.4.2018 General News
The Pakistani Army has perfected the art of the "non-coup coup", which is to run affairs without taking over power directly, the country's former envoy to the US Husain Haqqani said today. The military's role in Pakistan was the product of the country's worldview which is of a "country under siege", he said, at the launch of his book 'Reimagining Pakistan: Transforming a Dysfunctional Nuclear State' here. "We have become threat perceivers. America is conspiring against us. China, we haven't got there yet, but it will come. How can a nation be a prosperous model nation when it thinks the whole world is conspiring against it," the former diplomat said. Haqqani served as Pakistan's ambassador from 2008 to 2011 in the US and was removed for his alleged role in what is known as the Memogate controversy, which revolved around a memorandum seeking help of the Obama administration in the wake of the Osama bin Laden raid to avert a military takeover of the civilian government in his country.

Three injured after quake hits Japan: agency 9.4.2018 General News
A quake hit western Japan today, leaving three people with minor injuries and damaging buildings and roads, local media reported. The shallow tremor was reported as magnitude 6.1 by the Japan Meteorological Agency, according to Kyodo news agency, although USGS gave its strength as 5.7. It rocked the west of the main island of Honshu, 96 kilometres north of Hiroshima. Three people sustained minor injuries while some 100 households lost water supplies and 50 households saw electricity cut, Kyodo reported, adding there was also damage to some buildings and roads. However, no problems were reported at the nearby Shimane nuclear power station, the agency said.

A devastating magnitude 9.0 quake -- which struck under the Pacific Ocean on March 11, 2011 -- and the resulting tsunami caused widespread damage and took the lives of thousands of people.
