Russia Erects New Missile Base On Island Near Japan For “Round-The-Clock Watch”

Russia Erects New Missile Base On Island Near Japan For “Round-The-Clock Watch” Russia has inflamed regional tensions with Japan by deploying new missile defense systems in the disputed Kuril Islands, specifically a mobile coastal defense missiles system on a northernmost island in the chain. “Coastal servicemen of the Pacific Fleet will keep a round-the-clock watch to control the adjacent water area and strait zones,” the Russian defense ministry said in announcing the new missile placement on Tuesday. The Bastion mobile missile defense system, such as the kind seen in earlier Kuril deployments, has a range of 310 miles, via Reuters/Russian MoD. Paramushir is the island hosting the new coastal defense missiles, which lies between Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula and Japan, with the Kremlin further describing that it plans a permanent troop deployment to keep the systems operational for year-round service, including military housing and even recreation, akin to a full base. Russia has long been denounced by Japan and its allies in the West for militarizing the islands, building up a military presence “under the radar” – despite Tokyo also claiming sovereignty over them, which it calls the Northern Territories or Southern Chishima. All of this comes amid long-running on again, off again peace negotiations over the islands’ status. Russia had already deployed Bastion systems on Matua, part of the central Kuril Islands, but this new announcement of an expansion of coastal systems to other islands on a year-round basis marks a significant escalation.  As for the peace talks regarding the islands’ status, Russia cut them off after Japan imposed Ukraine-related sanctions on Moscow. According to Reuters, “Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno told a Tuesday news conference that the government will closely monitor the Russian military activity, adding it has been intensifying in the far east regions in tandem with Moscow’s invasion

The Real Reason Behind China’s “Zero-COVID” Policy

The Real Reason Behind China’s “Zero-COVID” Policy Authored by Kit Knightly via Off-Guardian.org, Most of the Western world is no longer in lockdown, some vaccine mandates are being loosened, mask wearers are distinctly the minority everywhere you look. For now at least, and for want of a better phrase, we have largely “gone back to normal”…except, you know, now with a totally broken economy, more centralised financial power, dozens of alarming precedents set up for future deployment and millions upon millions of people injected with poison under false pretences. But on the lockdown front at least, we’re normal…mostly. Lockdowns are quickly becoming one of those embarrassing things that were only ever supported by other people, like wearing flares or voting for Thatcher. Politicians are feverishly passing the buck back and forth, claiming to have never wanted lockdowns in the firstplace. …but not in China. As the rest of the world “lives with Covid”, people in Chinese cities are still subject to dystopian levels of control and surveillance. Up to and including being welded inside their own homes. Why? Well, we can certainly rule out a few mainstream “explanations”: We know it’s not because Covid is a real disease or uniquely dangerous in any way whatsoever. The data has spoken on that. We know it’s not because lockdowns work to protect the health of the public or prevent disease outbreaks. The data has spoken on that too. We know it’s not because the Chinese government holds the lives of their citizens as more precious than their Western counterparts. And we know it’s not because they were the victim of some bio-engineered viral attack by the West. That idea was always absurd. …so what’s the real explanation? Well, there are really several answers to that, all of which come back to our old
