 尊敬するジェーンズ・ディフェンス・ウィークリー(JDW)の Peter Felstead編集長は「トランプと金正恩によるレトリック 合戦に重要性を見いだせない」ときっぱり。
 むしろ、小野寺防衛相が、米軍基地のあるグアムが攻撃された場合、集団的自衛権を行使できる「存立危機事態」にあたり得る、との考えを示したことに大いに興味を示しておりました。かりにそれが行われれば、日本の戦後の防衛政策を大きく変える重大なステップになります。


Japan could invoke right to ‘collective self-defence' if Guam attacked

Kosuke Takahashi - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
10 August 2017

Any missile attack by North Korea on the US territory of Guam in the western Pacific would breach the US deterrence against an attack on Japan, enabling Japan to exercise the right to ‘collective self-defence’, Japanese Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera said on 10 August.

North Korea’s Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army on 9 August issued a statement saying that it is considering firing four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missiles (IRBMs) simultaneously toward waters 30 to 40 km off Guam, effectively as a ‘show of force’ to the Trump administration. It said it would complete its plan by mid-August.

In response to the North Korean statement, Onodera said an attack on Guam would be considered a so-called ‘survived threatening situation’ in Japan, or a Japanese national emergency, because it would threaten Japan’s existence as a nation.

Kosuke Takahashi, Tokyo and Gabriel Dominguez, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

16 May 2017
Japanese defence minister Tomomi Inada has said her country is considering introducing the Lockheed Martin Aegis Ashore ballistic missile defence (BMD) system to counter North Korea's growing missile threat.

"In order to bolster capabilities to defend our whole nation all the time, [we] will promote consideration of introducing ballistic missile defence systems such as Aegis Ashore without any loose ends," Inada said during an Upper House committee session of Japan's national legislature on 15 May.

Moreover, the country will be advancing the introduction of the Patriot PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhanced (MSE) and Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) Block IIA (RIM-161D) missiles, Inada said a day later in a press conference.
