Build an Armed Doorbell Camera

Japan does not occupy the small Senkaku Islands and plans to rush troops to them if China starts an operation to take them. I'm not sure who came up with that plan for defeat. Only robots can save the islands.

If I was China, I'd foment the kind of resistance that caused Japan to delay deployment of V-22 Ospreys to Saga airport in southwest Japan for Senkaku Island scenarios:

Unable to win local support for deployment of V-22 Ospreys to Saga airport in southwestern Japan, the Japanese government is delaying delivery of the trouble-prone aircraft.

Japanese Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya said Friday the government is postponing delivery of the first batch of US-made Osprey tilt-rotor transport aircraft, initially planned for this fall, to a yet-to-be confirmed later date.

Of course, I have problems with the entire way Japan is approaching Senkaku Island scenarios. Planning to race China to the islands is idiotic.

Japan's new defense focus is well suited both to a declining and aging population and for the defense of the Senkaku Islands:

Japan’s new defence policy, which will be introduced before the end of the year, is expected to put emphasis on the development of military capabilities in cyber, artificial intelligence (AI), and autonomous systems, it has been reported.

As I've suggested, rather than planning to race China to the islands or planning on retaking the islands from China, Japan should defend the islands with robots.

Japan's new defense focus could enable that.
