Aircraft Carrier

Japan has unveiled a new, huge warship. It is an aircraft carrier with a flight deck 250 metres long. Reports say it is the biggest Japanese warship since World War II. The carrier is supposed to be used in border-area survellance and anti-submarine missions. With the recent tension over the Japanese Senkaku Islands, which China claims, it is a good thing that Japan has a good defence capacity. I hope it will never have to be used in an actual war, but then, having a military strong enough to deter your enemies from making war with you is the main purpose of it.
