World War 2
Germany in WW2
Japan in WW2

Do Japan and Germany have a military today or were they stripped of their right to have a military after World War 2 and do we have our troops there?

Both countries have modern military technology and large well

funded militaries. Both have been involved in military actions all

over the world. Since the end of the Cold War, both Japan and

Germany have been sending their troops all over the world. Germany

has military stationed in many countries, both as German miltary

and part of NATO and EUFOR. Japan has troops stationed in a number

of countries as well. Japan led a mission to Cambodia in the 1990's

as the lead of a UN mission and since the end of the Cold War in

particular, both nations have been increasingly militarily and

politically active and assertive. Germany as a nation invaded

Yugoslavia after Germany recognized Slovenia and Croatia's right to

independence, even before the citizens had had a chance to and sent

in German miltary troops, that were replaced with European

military, then UN, then NATO and then EUFOR troops as section after

section of Yugoslavia has been plunged into warfare. What resulted

was increasing German and international miltary, political and

economic involvement, influence and control in the former

Yugoslavia, an increasing pattern being seen with international

coordinated miltary actions in other countries whether as part of

the UN, NATO, EUFOR, INTERFET, the African Union and other "allied

coalitions" such as the "coalition of the willing" invasion of

Iraq, of international military actions in other countries that the

governments of Japan and Germany have been heavily backing and

pushing for.

We currently have troops stationed in both countries but not as

occupiers but as allies to deter future aggression from other

countries. Our commitment in Germany has dropped since the

80's(when I was there). Then we had 7th Army in Europe. I think

most of those forces are now in the Middle East and I expect the

permanent reassignment of troops from Asia and Europe to the Middle


Japan and Germany have had matching economic and foreign

policies for much of their existence as nations, both formed in

1871 based on the massive influence of their militaries in their

governments. The Japanese and German militaries were behind the

scene powers behind both the German Kaiser and the Japanese Emperor

in their imperial days. This strong military influence and control

followed the end of World War One in Germany, when Hitler and the

Nazis were backed by and formed by the German military. Hitler was

a member of the German military as the German military used the

Nazi party, which they created and backed, Hitler as a protegee of

the top German general in World War One, Ludendorff and another

major German general, Von Hindenberg was in the government from

1925 on and was chancellor of Germany when the Nazis came to power

and criminally and illegally passed on the chancellorship to

Hitler, putting the Nazis who were a puppet front for the German

military in office. The result was soon to see as Germany under the

Nazis, planned a full out extermination campaign against the rest

of the world.

They were partners in this full out extermination campaign

against the rest of the world with Japan. In Japan, just as was

true in Germany, the Japanese government was completely controlled

by the Japanese military and Tojo as the Prime Minister, donned his

military uniform as a general in the Japanese military and like

Hitler didn't take it off. They were "German and Japanese military

personnel" and not German and Japanese civil governmental personnel

who were militaristic.

The military continued to hold sway and control and influence in

the German and Japanese economies Post World War Two. They used

their still continued control and influence over Japanese and

German national companies and banks to jointly target all the other

nations in the world through conjoined trade pushes in timed

sectors, wiping out other country's national companies in steel,

tools, shipbuilding, autos, pharmaceuticals, optics, machine tools,

and most other manufactures and technologies in the world where

they hold virtual monopoly control by Japanese and German


They also continued to have control of their governments which

they used to assure that Japan and Germany would continue to have

active miltaries, even though they were supposed to be dismantled

after World War Two.

Japan and German since World War Two have used other countries

as proxies for military actions for them that Japan and German and

no one else benefitted from. They immediately created a fabricated

"Cold War" with people like Gehlen in the German military feeding

the US intelligence that Russia was a threat to the United States

while feeding Russians the same threat about the United States.

Although the U.S. got nothing out of the Vietnam War nor did

Vietnam or it's people, Japan certainly did when Ho Chi Minh

invited Japan and just Japan to bring Japanese companies in to

invest in and sell to the Vietnamese. A "communist country"? Not

really. It certainly didn't benefit Vietnamese companies, however

it did a lot for Japan. Germany and Japan have both gained a lot

from conflict in Central Asia, Afghanistan and Iraq. Japan is a

major investor in Iraq, Germany in Central Asia and Afghan

president Karzai just gave Japan first dibs on Afghanistan's

substantial mineral rights.

They have also increasingly been militarily active, and both

have recently gutted their pretense of "peace constitutions"

proclaiming that they should be allowed to be offensively involved

in military actions in other countries as long as they are "part of

a "coalition". At the same time, they have set up other countries

for miltary actions in other countries first and foremost their so

called "ally" the United States who they are using to eg set up for

miltary actions in other countries with Japan and Germany attached

as "coalition members". Japan and Germany have both been fairly

openly hegemonic towards Europe and Asia, both governments recently

sounding like what they did leading up to World War Two, only this

time the German government proclaiming that they should join with

other nations against the threat of "International Islam" instead

of "International Jewry" as they did in World War Two, to set up

offensive wars against others, while subversively taking over

European countries using the EU to do it.

They are also using other international orgs, the UN first and

foremost and NATO and the World Bank, IMF and WTO to take over

other countries economically, governmentally and miltarily, and yes

as a "joint Japanese - German action"
