I agree with you on most of your thoughts

a) stupid fighter
b) they use you for sending forces.
In my region things are more complicated. We have a cold war running already. And if you search, you'll see that in comparison with Australia, Greece has more planes, more army, more navy and unfortunately more military spending.
And i consider Australia like my second country, since i was born there. So, there are some things that i care a lot. For eample it is unfair to offer the Japs the F-22 and not to the Australians. I can't see why.

Simple answer:


China has always hated Japan, and Japan doesnt have the power these days to keep the Chinese calm. Theres a report of a Chinese Rocket that could be fitted with a Nuke Warhead being fired OVER Japan. It makes sense giving the JSDF the Raptor, as it would be a hard kill for any Chinese plane or pilot, alot harder then the current F-15/F-16 combination they have now.
