Governor Ishihara advocates nuclear simulation

At a press conference on August 5th, as a measure in raising Japan's presence in the midst of surrounding nuclear states, Tokyo Governor Ishihara Shintaro expressed his ideas on the need for nuclear simulations.

Upon referencing the running of subcritical nuclear tests after America's President Obama received a Nobel Peace Prize while insisting on a "nuclear-free world", Governor Ishihara expressed his ideas saying, "Japan, too, should do something like that. If we wanted to possess [nuclear weapons] we could do it whenever. We have a mountain of plutonium anyway."

Furthermore, he emphasized, "If Japan does not become a strong military state, our presence will certainly be lost." A need for the development of missiles using aerospace engineering was brought up.

Moreover, he stressed that "North Korea and China and Russia have stolen Japanese territory; countries with an intent to steal and countries possessing nuclear weapons with evident hostility, Japan is the only country in the world surrounded so closely by them." He stated, "We must consider countering these. It is no longer an age where just economic power is enough."
