Japan Warns The United States That a ‘Pearl Harbor-Style’ Attack From China And Russia is Possible

China and Russia are showing increased signs of military cooperation, according to Japan’s number two defense official, and their activities in the Pacific could indicate that they plan to launch a Pearl Harbor-style attack on the US, similar to what Japan did on Dec. 7, 1941, propelling the US into World War II.

“Seventy years ago, we bombed Pearl Harbor,” Japanese State Defense Minister Yasuhide Nakayama said at a Hudson Institute event, “but now the United States and Japan [are] extremely excellent allies, one of the best allies in the world.” Russian naval forces are now “really exercising just just in front of the western part of Honolulu,” according to Nakayama.

Russia’s fleet has been conducting different naval drills near Hawaii in recent days, including sinking an aircraft carrier. There have been reports of Russian ships operating within 35 nautical miles of the Hawaiian shore. The US Navy moved Carrier Strike Group (CSG) 1 in the Hawaiian Islands Operating Area amid neighboring Russian naval drills.

“We have to show deterrence towards China, and not just China, but also the Russians, because, as I told you, they are doing their drills together,” Nakayama stated.

“China and Russia are performing admirably. They’re close buddies. I believe they are great buddies. But, on the other side, they are developing their own missile and submarine capabilities. They’re sharing their knowledge, I suppose with academia or [research and development],” Nakayama explained. “…as a result, we must place a greater emphasis on how to protect, and not just protect, but also how to hedge the risk.”

Nakayama also drew a parallel between a prospective nuclear assault by Russia or China and the United States’ World War II nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan.

“If a country fires [a nuclear weapon] from their continent into Honolulu, that missile has 200 times the warheads of Hiroshima,” Nakayama added. “So, I’ve gone to Hiroshima and visited the museum before, and based on that experience and viewpoint, I believe Honolulu will be obliterated off the map if 200 times more powerful atomic bombs, torpedoes, missiles, or warheads are directed at Honolulu. So, before we use those powers, we must consider how to put a stop to it.”

Nakayama also discussed China’s escalating danger of invasion against Taiwan, as well as how Japan and the United States must work together to keep Chinese actions in control.
