Japan wants missiles that can strike China – media

Japan wants missiles that can strike China – media
Tokyo reportedly seeks to deploy upgraded long-range cruise missiles to the southern Nansei Islands
The Japanese government wants to close the “missile gap” with China, a major Japanese newspaper reported on Sunday, citing several government officials. The government reportedly plans to extend the range of its surface-to-ship missiles to at least 1,000km – and modify them to be launched from vessels and aircraft and to strike ground targets.

An improved ground-launched version of Japan's Type 12 missile is expected to enter service in 2024, two years earlier than originally planned, the Yomiuri reported. The newspaper claimed that Tokyo eventually wants “more than 1,000” such missiles deployed across the Nansei Islands.

The missile plan is said to be part of what the newspaper called a “Taiwan contingency” initiative. Last December, Japan’s Self-Defense Forces (SDF) and the US military reportedly reached an agreement to establish an attack base on the Nansei Islands in the event of an “emergency,” should conflict break out between Taiwan and Beijing.

Tokyo officials cited by the country’s Kyodo News at the time said that if enacted, the plan would see US Marines stationed on the Nansei Islands at a temporary attack base, with the SDF providing support in the form of extra troops if a military threat to Taiwan was imminent.

In order to justify such “counterstrike capabilities,” Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party previously indicated that it wants to revise and partially classify the current National Security Strategy by the end of year, focusing on whether Japan can acquire weapons to strike enemy bases. The matter is a sensitive issue, given Japan’s defense-oriented constitution, which explicitly renounces war.

The Nansei Islands consist of around 200 isles, some uninhabited. Three of the isles – Amami-Oshima, Ishigaki, and Miyako – were reportedly being considered as homes for missile units, but their presence near the disputed Senkaku Islands could spark further anger from China over increased militarization in the region.
日本、中国を攻撃できるミサイルを希望-メディア
東京は、南西諸島に改良型長距離巡航ミサイルを配備しようとしていると報じられた。
日本政府は中国との「ミサイルギャップ」を縮めたいと考えていると、日本の主要新聞が複数の政府関係者の話を引用して日曜日に報じた。政府は、地対艦ミサイルの射程を少なくとも1000kmに延長し、艦船や航空機から発射して地上の標的を攻撃できるように改良する計画だと報じられている。

読売新聞は、日本の12式ミサイルの改良型地上発射型は、当初の計画より2年早く、2024年に運用開始される見込みだと報じている。読売新聞は、東京都は最終的に南西諸島に「1000基以上」のミサイルを配備することを望んでいると主張している。

このミサイル計画は、同紙が「台湾有事」と呼ぶ構想の一部であるという。昨年12月、日本の自衛隊と米軍は、台湾と北京の間で紛争が勃発した場合の「有事」に備えて、南西諸島に攻撃基地を設置することで合意したと報じられた。

東京の共同通信が当時報じたところによると、もしこの計画が実現すれば、米海兵隊が南西諸島に臨時攻撃基地を設置し、台湾への軍事的脅威が差し迫った場合には自衛隊が追加部隊という形で支援を提供することになる。

このような「反撃能力」を正当化するために、日本の与党自民党は以前、日本が敵の基地を攻撃するための武器を獲得できるかどうかを中心に、現行の国家安全保障戦略を年内に改定し、一部分類したい意向を示している。戦争放棄を明記した防衛重視の日本国憲法を考えれば、この問題はデリケートな問題である。

南西諸島は約200の小島からなり、一部は無人島である。奄美大島、石垣島、宮古島の3島はミサイル部隊の拠点として検討されているとされるが、係争中の尖閣諸島の近くにあるため、この地域の軍備増強に対する中国の怒りをさらに掻き立てる可能性がある。

西日本でコロナの死亡者が多いのはなぜ? ATLの原因ウィルスの抗体保有者の割合と強い相関


下位の都県も見てみます。はっきりと分かれています。
【都道府県別】人口あたりの新型コロナウイルス死者数の推移から転載
過去51日間の死亡数人口100万人当たり。青:西日本、緑:東日本

これはいかなる原因によるものでしょう。差の原因がわかれば感染防止に役立てることができるでしょう。

@ 西日本は、関西、特に大阪との交流が多い。


A 西日本は何かの基礎疾患を持つ人が多く、それが感染者の死亡につながっている。

B 西日本に出回る何らかの食品または物品にコロナウィルスの汚染がある。

C 西日本は、コロナを警戒する生活行動の影響で経済不振が強まり、ここにきて一気に警戒感が後退している。

西日本にお住いの方は、何か感じておられませんか。

・・・・・

Tsさんから西日本に多い基礎疾患というとATL成人T細胞白血病が思い浮かぶと教えていただきました。ATLは、血液細胞の一種である T 細胞が、HTLV-1(ヒトT細胞白血病ウイルスT型)というウイルスに感染したことが原因でがんになる疾患です。感染経路は、幼少時に母乳を介し母親から感染することが多く、感染者はウィルスのキャリアとなります。

血液製剤調査機構だよりNo51より転載
平成6年の日本赤十字社の調べ


九州各県のほかに島根、高知が死亡数、陽性率ともに高いのは同じです。大阪、和歌山、兵庫もともに高い。香川、山口は、死亡数人口100万人当たりが高いですが、HTLV抗体陽性率は高くない。ですが、全体としては、強い相関がみられます。

HTLVキャリアの方が、コロナに感染して発症し、深刻な結果になっているという仮説は専門家に検討してもらわなければなりませんが、どうもありうるようです。ワクチン接種によってがんが発生しやすくなるとの説もあります。

ワクチン接種後急性白血病発症の事例
2022/2/19 3回目接種 2022/2/20 発熱 2022/4/28 急性リンバ白血病診断、入院 2022/5/3 抗がん剤開始 2022/5/8 逝去 ご冥福をお祈りします。

えーと、どうもえらいことにぶち当たったようです。

がん発症を避けるために役に立つ方法はあるか?
私が助言できるのは、これ以上のワクチン接種を慎重にすることと、コロナ感染防止に全力を挙げることしか思い浮かびません。白血病を発症する場合が多いようですから、体調不良の際は、そのリスクも踏まえてしっかりと検査してもらい、必要であれば速やかに治療を開始してもらうことに尽きるでしょうか。

なお、コロナ感染予防のためにイベルメクチンを服用することも基本的には推奨できるかもしれません。イベルメクチンを服用していた方ががんが消えたという例があったようです。

欧州は冬季の暖房の準備に躍起だが、日本では?

欧州では夏の終わりが近づくとともに人々は冬の暖房の準備に大わらわです。まずはマキの確保。暖炉がある家は、何よりもマキの確保です。暖炉があるのは一戸建てでしょうから都市部の集合住宅は、マキは使えない。

2022年08月21日
欧州は冬に備える動きが急

ただ、冬季のエネルギー不足が特に激しくなりそうなのは、欧州です。中国やインドはロシアから割安価格で買っていますので、インドは石油製品を輸出しようとしています。

日本は、サハリン2の問題はありますが、長期契約が多いので欧州のような価格の急騰は今のところ生じていません。しかし、電気料金やガス料金は上昇中。これから加速するかもしれません。

私も冬に向けた対策を考えていますが、どこまでの対策をするか、悩ましいです。対策にもカネがかかります。

暖房に灯油を使っていますから、灯油価格の動向次第。今のところそれほど高騰しているわけではないようですが、需要期に入ってどうなるか。

価格高騰の気配が出たらすぐ動くしかないでしょうか。

欧州は冬に備える動きが急

Swiss police warn of winter riots
All bets are off if severe blackouts take place, a top official warns
Swiss people may revolt and resort to looting if the Alpine nation is hit by a severe energy crunch this winter, the police chief of one of its cantons told local media on Saturday.

Fredy Fassler, the head of the Security and Justice Department in the canton of St. Gallen, told German-language daily Blick that a blackout would have “far-reaching consequences.”

“Imagine, you can no longer withdraw money at the ATM, you can no longer pay with the card in the store or refuel your tank at the gas station. Heating stops working. It’s cold. Streets go dark. It is conceivable that the population would rebel or that there would be looting,” he said, adding that the country’s authorities should take measures to prepare for such extreme scenarios.

According to Fassler, while he does not think such a disaster is likely, police have prepared for such an eventuality. Exercises that were conducted in 2014 to prepare for a blackout scenario revealed major shortcomings, including lack of emergency generators for police, hospitals and other critical infrastructure and services, he said.

“These shortcomings have been addressed in recent years, so the security forces are ready,” the police chief added, noting that his agency is even prepared to provide the Swiss with cash if they are unable to use cards in stores, given that relevant agreements with banks have been signed.

Fassler’s comments come after Swiss authorities said last week that they may place restrictions on energy consumption this coming winter, signaling that “power shortages [are] among the most serious risks” for the landlocked country.

Earlier, Werner Luginbuhl, the head of Switzerland’s electricity regulator ElCom, complained that electricity was being used “completely thoughtlessly,” and urged citizens to stock up on candles and firewood due to possible power outages in the country this winter.

London's mayor sounds alarm over winter crisis
The UK government needs to step in and make sure people are able to meet their basic needs, Sadiq Khan says

Millions of people in the UK could find themselves unable to put food on the table and heat their homes this coming winter if the government doesn’t intervene, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said on Saturday.

“We’ve seen nothing like this before,” Khan wrote on Twitter, referring to soaring energy prices and record inflation of more than 10%.

“We’re facing a winter where for millions it won’t be about choosing between heating or eating but tragically being able to afford neither,” he warned.

“This can’t happen,” the mayor insisted, adding that the British government “needs to step in so that people can meet their basic needs.”

He accompanied the post with a data from the Auxilione energy consultancy, predicting that energy bills in the UK could increase by 80% in October, exceeding £3,600 ($4,292) per year on average. For comparison, the cap set by energy industry regulator, Ofgem, in October 2021 stood at £1,400 per year.

Khan also spoke on the same issue on Friday while visiting a warehouse that distributes supplies to food banks in one of London’s boroughs.

He gave assurances that his administration is “committed” to providing support for struggling Londoners, but called on the government to work harder, as there is “no sign of this rise in costs slowing down”.

“Ministers must act now to help prevent this cost of living crisis becoming a national disaster,” the mayor said.

Economic difficulties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic in Europe have been further exacerbated by Western sanctions imposed on Moscow over the conflict in Ukraine and the subsequent decrease in Russian natural gas supplies to the EU.

Gas shortages, freezing temperatures, firewood hoarding: Just how bad could things get this winter?
Skyrocketing energy prices have prompted some Europeans to stockpile basic forms of heating and buy stoves to keep warm

Natural gas prices across Europe have quadrupled this year. Looking ahead to winter and imagining the new heights energy values may hit, consumers are starting to opt for an alternative (old) form of heating – wood. Huge demand for combustibles, as well as for wood stoves, has been detected in several Western states.

In Germany, where almost a half of homes are heated with gas, people are turning to a more guaranteed energy source. Firewood sellers tell local media that they are barely coping with the demand. The country is also witnessing a rise in cases of wood theft.

Next door, in the Netherlands, business owners note that their clients are buying wood earlier than ever. In Belgium, wood producers are struggling with demand, while prices are going up – as they are across the region.

In Denmark, one local stove manufacturer told the media that, while demand for his product was on the rise since the start of the Covid pandemic, this year’s profit is forecast to reach over 16 million kroner (€2 million), compared with 2.4 million in 2019. A huge increase.

Even Hungary, a country that didn’t support the EU’s decision to phase out Russian fossil fuels and agreed a new gas purchase with Moscow this summer, is making preparations for a tough winter. The country has announced a ban on the export of firewood and relaxed some restrictions on logging. The World Wildlife Fund Hungary has expressed its concern on the matter, declaring:

In fact, the conflict in Ukraine is not the only reason for the energy crisis. The increase in prices had already been observed in 2021.

“It was the effect of supply chain interruptions due to COVID, a very cold winter, very hot summer and China’s energy crisis, that led to [the] buying [of] huge amounts of LNG around the world,” says Professor Phoebe Koundouri, Director of the Research laboratory on Socio-Economic and Environmental Sustainability at Athens University of Economics and Business, and President of the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists.

ロシア兵がボツリヌス菌中毒

Russian soldiers in Ukraine hospitalized with severe chemical poisoning – Moscow
Traces of the toxin Botulinum toxin Type B have been discovered, the Defense Ministry says
Several Russian soldiers involved in the military operation in Ukraine have been hospitalized with severe chemical poisoning, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Saturday.

Traces of Botulinum toxin Type B, which is an “organic poison of artificial origin,” have been discovered in samples taken from the servicemen, the ministry said, accusing Kiev of “chemical terrorism.”

The Russian troops were “hospitalized with signs of severe poisoning” after being stationed near the village of Vasilyevka in Zaporozhye Region on July 31, the statement said.

“The Zelensky regime has authorized terrorist attacks with the use of toxic substances against Russian personnel and civilians” following a string of military defeats in Donbass and other areas, the ministry insisted.

Moscow plans to send laboratory tests from the soldiers to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

Botulinum toxin, often called the “miracle poison,” is one of the most toxic biological substances known to science. Produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria, it blocks the release of the acetylcholine neurotransmitter, causing muscle paralysis.

Botulinum toxin Type A has been used in medicine in small doses in recent decades, especially to treat disorders characterized by overactive muscle movement. It’s also well known in cosmetology under its shortened name, Botox.

However, Botulinum toxin poses a major threat as a bioweapon due its ease of production and distribution, and the high fatality rate resulting from poisoning. Recovery is only possible after a lengthy period of intensive care.
