In addition to opposition to US plans to deploy its missile defense system in South Korea, and now in Japan, the most reliable way to deal with this problem is the modernization of its own nuclear weapons, writes the Global Times. The publication offers China, and Russia combine efforts in this direction, and then they will be able to cope with the US "gluttony" that threatens to disrupt the global balance of power.
Against the background of Washington's and Seoul plans to place the American THAAD missile defense system in South Korea, Japan also expressed its desire to accelerate the deployment of US missile defense system on its territory. So, if before the Tokyo spoke of it as a longer term target for the period after 2018, it is now in discussions of these dates have become much closer to the present moment, says Global Times. Of course, Japan is not without reason spoke about THAAD at a time when Sino-Korean relations somewhat shaken. It seems that the opposition to Beijing is "the main line of the foreign policy" of Tokyo. And now he deliberately causes inconvenience China, and it seems that Chinese trouble delivering joy to the Japanese. The question of the deployment of the US missile defense system in Japan, in principle, that's a bargain, and here everything depends on time. THAAD strengthen defense capabilities of Tokyo, and if he has agreed on everything with the United States, no such enhancement can prevent it. As pointed out in the publication of an editorial, America has a global plan to deploy its missile defense system in all strategic locations. In fact, the aim of this program is to monitor the nuclear activities of Russia and China - Washington wants to maximize its chances to intercept potential missile Moscow or Beijing, thus neutralizing the nuclear threat from their side. In addition, the whole global system of US missile defense will become a big political chain, that in the period of the weakening of America itself will help it to strengthen relations with its allies. This is how the United States could win over South Korea, despite the strong economic ties that have hitherto been at it with China. In fact, to assess the value of any missile defense system under actual combat is very difficult, because if they start, it will be a disaster. But in peacetime anti-missile systems act as an important geopolitical tool. In theory, they should ensure peace and tranquility, as well as to contain the threat of offensive weapons. However, in practice the basis of peace and stability is not so long ago was the presence of nuclear weapons in many states - this is the "special balance of power." A missile defense system aimed at to "paralyze" the power of the opponent, are "extravagant call" global equilibrium and bring not peace, but all the new variations. The US can not create a reliable global anti-missile system, the more they do not have the possibility to test it, while offensive weapons are developed and modernized with much greater speed. Therefore, in addition to confront the deployment of US missile defense system in South Korea, the most effective way - to deduce its own rocket to the next level. The only way to eliminate the US "gluttony" in terms of deployment of its missile defense systems around the world, explains the Global Times. China should work closely with Russia in the development of modern strategic weapons to the American program "has completely lost its credibility." However, Russia can try to create a weapon that can break the THAAD. As an appropriate response to America and its allies, the two countries can combine their nuclear capabilities. The deployment of US missile defense system in South Korea and then in Japan, will create in the region a strong axis of the three states. And, probably sensing that something was wrong, Korean and Japanese media are already worried about not create whether Russia, China and North Korea response systems. "In our opinion, Russia, China and North Korea will not copy US practices, South Korea and Japan, but the threat of a new Cold War in Northeast Asia increased significantly," -kommentiruet edition. «THAAD China gave a reason for the formation of the world's first nuclear power, so that in the long run it is not so bad", - he says in conclusion Global Times.
