Japan will join a major U.S.-Australian military exercise for the first time in a sign of growing security links between the three countries as tensions fester over China’s island building in the South China Sea.

While only 40 Japanese officers and soldiers will take part in drills involving 30,000 U.S. and Australian troops in early July, experts said the move showed how Washington wanted to foster cooperation among its security allies in Asia.

The Talisman Sabre biennial exercises, to be held in locations around Australia, will encompass maritime operations, amphibious landings, special forces tactics and urban warfare.

    We are finacing, are own destruction. I miss, Mao Zedong, he kept China, in the, “Stone Age”. When the new generation, took control, they knew that, Communism, as an economic system, would not work. They embraced, Capitalism, but kept, total control, of every other aspect, of Chinese life. There are no other freedoms, which seems to be, not possible, However, the Reds, have made it a success. The Reds, are financing, a large part of the US debt. While, they maintain, a huge, economic surplus. The US, has created a monster, that will devour us, over time. The transfer of technology, to the Reds, has been the worst disaster, the US has ever done. We screwed ourselves, now we will reap, what we have sown.
