In a further lurch to the far right, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told lawmakers on Tuesday that he does not believe Japan's occupation of other Asian countries during World War II can be considered "invasions."

Abe claimed there are no set international or academic definitions of the word. "It depends on the point of view of individual countries," he said, referring to a statement in 1995 by then-Prime Minister Tomiichi Murayama, which apologized to all Asian victims of Japanese aggression and from which rightwingers are scrambling to distance themselves.

Japan occupied Korea from 1910 to 1945 and invaded China and several Southeast Asian nations during an aggressive expansion to create what was billed as the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere."

Experts here slammed Abe's remarks. Ko Sang-tu at Yonsei University said, "That is simply absurd. It's like saying Hitler's invasion of Poland wasn't really an invasion. If a German chancellor had said the same thing, he or she would have had to resign."

Sex slavery was necessary, says Osaka mayor
This is the heading of an article in mypaper from AFP. The obnoxious lying Japanese mayor, Toru Hashimoto, described the 200 thousand Chinese, Koreans, the Filipinos and from other countries to provide sex for the Japanese Imperial Army as necessary. These ‘comfort women’ or forced prostitutes, were snatched from their homes against their wills but the Japanese claimed that only some were against their will, meaning many did it willingly. How to trust the Japanese for moral righteousness and for telling lies with their eyes wide open?
And ‘he said there was no evidence that the system had been officially sanctioned by the state, and the use of prostitutes was not unique to Japan’. So this is an acceptable practice in the eyes of the Japanese. And the Emperor did not know that there was a war going on.
So, should there be a war and foreign forces invaded Japan, it is ok to make Japanese women become comfort women for the foreign soldiers. And bet you, the Japanese, like this Hashimoto, will agree that it is ok.
The Japanese are revealing their attachment to their past atrocities and that they are all for it and will do it again. Basically they are saying that they are the same people then and now, and are itching to return to militarism and Japanese Imperialism. They are gearing up to be another military power like their father and grandfather generations.
Just listen to how aggressive they have become in their speeches, threatening to use force, to spend more money on military forces and weapons, to rewrite the pacifist constitution, to beef up their military, to engage in military adventures overseas.
Should the world welcome the remilitarization of Japan? They are the same Japanese that invaded East and South East Asia in their ambitious plan to colonise these countries. Their barbaric acts and killings of women and children are still being remembered by all the victim countries? They have taken down their mask of decency and respectability and as civilized modern people. They want to go to war again, to be the beasts they used to be.

Abe and a militant Japan
The road that Abe and his rightist ministers is taking is leading to an intractable position and war with China over the Diaoyu Islands is inevitable. The logic and slant taken by Abe's group is that of Imperial Japan when might is right.

The accusation that only in 1971 that China made a claim on Diaoyu was proof that China did not own the island is a white lie. China was weak, had too many issues to deal with domestically, that should it try to make any claims before, it could lead probably to another military defeat by Japan or a lot of embarrassment as it could not do anything about its claims with a military more powerful Japan and a hostile US.

The Diaoyu was taken by force, as war loot signed away by the 1895 Unequal Treaty. And Abe is claiming that this was legitimate. In a way, yes it is treaty, an agreement. In order for China to take back Diaoyu, if Japan refuses to return it peacefully, will be to take it back by force with another treaty with Japan to over ride this treaty. Is that what Japan wants?

China is no longer a pushover though Japan may think it could repeat its aggressive invasion of China once again. Let's see if Japan is up to it and if China can turn the table around and invade Japan to return the favour.

Many on the side of Japan are refusing to see the historical records of Diaoyu and claimed that Japan has some grounds to claim it. The only legitimate ground is the Treaty of Shimonseki which if Japan is insisting on it, will be to abolish this treaty by the same means, war.

Abe and his hawkish ministers are taking Japan back to militarism. The pretension that it is difficult to change the pacifist constitution is simply bullshit. Many Japanese are waiting to relive their glorious Imperial Japan days. Put it to the Diet and a 2/3 majority to change the constitution is just a formality. The Japanese psychic of domination and superiority and militarism has never changed. It is reviving with greater gusto and arrogance.

The lie that Japan did not have a military force but a Self Defence Force is only unnoticeable to the blind. Japan is already a big military force and can engage in wars of aggression. Its 5 trillion yen annual budget for defence is no small feat.

And what is wrong with China expanding its military expenditure and the deceit of claiming that China has expanded it by 30 folds? China's military expenditure came from a very small base. China should be spending similar amount in defence as the US for a country of that size and for its own defence from its bad experience of being invaded when it was militarily weak.

The right of self defence is the right of every nation. China's defence expenditure is defensive in nature as against the US that is for world domination and hegemony.

Abe will lead Japan to a war with China if he is allowed to continue in this path.

Japan, the international thug shouting ‘robbery!’
Japan is accusing China of not playing by international law and becoming more aggressive in its actions in the Diaoyu Islands dispute. The Japanese Defence Ministry said, ‘China has attempted to change the status quo by force based on its own assertion, which is incompatible with the existing order of international law.’ The Japanese are also infuriating the Koreans by blaming them for heighten tension in the Korean Peninsula.
How far from the truth is this Japanese lie? In the first place China has not resorted to force to retake the islands seized by Japan in violation of international law in the late 19th Century. They took the islands from China by force. China could retake the islands by force too but refused to do so and sought to settle the issue by diplomatic means. It is the Japanese that have been resorting to the use of force, ramming Chinese civilian ships, arresting Chinese fishing boats and scrambling fighter aircraft against Chinese surveillance ships and aircraft in the area. More than 300 such missions were flown against 41 times when Chinese surveillance ships were in the area, including Chinese aircraft. Such acts of provocation could easily lead to a breakout of warfare.
The Japanese even mocked the Chinese by enacting a bogus sale of the islands from one Japanese to another when the the islands are Chinese territory. The provocations and aggressive show of force by the Japanese were hostile in all counts and they are blaming the Chinese for raising tension in the area.
Did the Japanese obey international law and international norms when it aggressively took advantage of Korea and China in the 19th and 20th Centuries leading to its seizure of the Chinese islands? After it has violated Chinese territories, taken Chinese islands, it is demanding that the Chinese must accept the fait accompli and observe international norms.
And it is rattling its sabre daily, even siding with the Philippines in the latter’s dispute with China, promising military assistance against China. It is rearming itself by increasing its military expenditure using the Chinese as the strawman.
Who is the aggressive country and who is not following international laws and norms in international relations? The Japanese under PM Abe is on a war path, raising tensions and provoking the Chinese to retaliate militarily.
Japan is following the path of the Americans. After seizing the North American continent from the Red Indians and committing the biggest genocide in the history of human kind, it preaches human rights and rule of law. Not forgetting the scale of slavery against the African blacks, it called itself the protector of human rights.
Japan had violated all the international laws and human rights against Asians and Southeast Asians but is accusing the Chinese and Koreans for not observing international law. Why should they when their territories are still in the hands of the Japanese. But the Japanese and the Americans will keep shouting China is bad, Korea is bad. And you have unthinking media willingly printing such news on the front page, to support the claim, to make the unthinking readers to believe a white lie.

Notion of aggression not defined – Shinzo Abe
When Abe was asked the question of Japan’s aggression in Korea, China and the rest of South East Asia in the Second World War, his reply was that ‘the notion of aggression was not defined’. What he meant must be that while the countries invaded was screaming aggression, just like a sexually violated victim shouting rape, the Japanese do not see it that way. To him, it was not aggression, but probably liberation. They were liberating the colonized countries to free them so that Japan can rule over them under the East Asia Co Prosperity Sphere. So where got aggression? It is for the mutual benefit and prosperity of Japan and all the countries they invaded.
How many Asian countries would believe this man? Can this man and Japan be trusted to revive its military and aggressive past as a military power? Abe is now visiting some of the countries that were victims of Japanese aggression which he did not agree and offering another version of the East Asian Co Prosperity formula. Japan is going to be the same old Imperial power to lead these countries under Japan. Japan is going tear away its pacifist constitution, rearmed like it used to be, a military power, and to be the leader of Asian countries once again.
It is increasing its military budget, acquiring more arms, involved in military adventures, offering to help the Philippines fight against China. It is behaving aggressively and provoking China and Korea and still making devious moves to continue to stake claims to the territories of Korea and China.
Would Asian countries be stupid enough to buy this Japanese lie that the remilitarization of Japan is for peace and for the good of Asia? Have these countries forgotten what a beast Japan was and could be again when it becomes an aggressive military power once again? Can Abe and Japan be trusted?

Japan spreading white lie
In its attempt to show the world that Japan is willing to talk to China and that China is the one that is unwilling, the special adviser to Shinzo Abe, Isao Iljima, has been spreading a lie that he had spoken to Chinese leaders and a summit between Xi Jinping and Abe is on the card. Chinese foreign ministry had rebutted this statement and said that Iljima was in China to discuss about North Korea and nothing to do with any summit of the two leaders.
China’s condition for a meeting is that Japan must agree to a dispute on the Diaoyu/Senkaku islands before any talk can commence. Japan seized the islands from China after a war and is now claiming that the islands were inherently Japanese.
The importance of the islands is not just about resources and minerals. It is national sovereignty and even if there is nothing there, no country will allow another country to seize its territories by force. China could only lie low if it is still militarily a weak country like in the past. Today, China could overrun Japan if needed and would not be lying down or turning the other cheek anymore. It will want its islands back.
The only compromise to this dispute is for both sides to acknowledge there is a dispute but leave it on the back burner. China and Japan both do not need the islands for their economic development for a long time to come and can talk about it in the future when relations are better state. For Japan to push the issue and resorting to underhand tactics and lies like they used to do in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries would not do today. Even the balance of power is tilted towards China and in favour of China. The use of force to settle the issue will be very costly to Japan and a likely defeat given the odds.
China is no longer the bankrupt Sick Man of Asia. It is the second super power and will deal a very bloody nose to Japan if force to. Would Japan be tempted to take on China militarily with the abolition of its pacifist constitution and remilitarization of its armed forces as a big military power? The changing of the pacifist constitution is only a matter of time In today’s report, Taro Aso, the Finance Minister has been accused of sowing the idea of changing the constitution secretly like Nazi Germany without the knowledge of the Japanese people and the world. The rightist govt of Abe is on the march towards remilitarization with the support of the US to counter China’s rise.

Aggressive intent of Japan
An aircraft carrier is banned by its pacificist constitution, so the Japanese called it a helicopter destroyer. It has a length of 248m, much longer than many aircraft carriers in service. The Japanese lied to say it could carry 14 helicopters for disaster and search and rescue missions. In reality it could easily be converted to carry and launch offensive VTOL or STOL multipurpose fighter bombers to attack any country within range. It could easily launch the latest and most sophisticated F35s the Americans are trying to sell to its allies.
Japan can continue to lie but the world is not blind. Its remilitarization and aggressive intent is evident and it poses a clear and present danger to countries in East and South East Asia. And it deliberately chooses to name the aircraft carrier/destroyer Izumo, the same name as the flagship of the Japanese fleet that invaded China in the 1930s. This and the 731 painted on the fighter aircraft that Shinzo Abe sat on cannot be pure coincident. The aircraft carrier was launched on the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to gain support and sympathetic sentiments from the Japanese people. The Japanese knew exactly what they are up to. They are rearming to resume their imperial military role of the past, maybe with the intent of avenging the atomic bombings of their country.
Japan has rearmed! And it is all done with the consent of the Americans who chose to close one eye to allow a strong military Japan to counter the rise of China. Japan and China is on a collision path, and hostility could break out between the two, only a matter of when. It may be opportune for China to think like the Americans, a pre emptive strike against Japan before it gets too powerful.
In a way God is kind, to allow Japan to rearm and to attempt another war against China, Korea and maybe even the Americans. And this war will settle all the blood debt of WW2 that Japan has yet to repay.

Japan about to declare war on China
Last year the Japanese created a farce by buying the Chinese islands of Daioyu from one of its citizens with a fictitious ownership. This has created alarm in China while the Japanese thought the Chinese were as dumb as the Manchus and would agree to their silly act. This final act of aggression is the last straw and China would not allow any further misstep in this direction. Another false move by the Japanese to assert control over the Chinese islands would be tantamount to a declaration of war.
Shinto Abe’s election platform was to put Japanese official in the islands and they are saying it again, this time by the Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga that Japan is considering deploying personnel to the islands. Any attempt of such nature will be war as far as China is concerned. Japan must not try to move another inch as the Chinese have taken their position and drawn the line that Japan would not be allowed to cross.
War between the two countries is so close and only a matter of time as the highly charged nationalistic group in the country, with Shinto Abe as the leader, is bound to try its luck with China. This group would want to revive Japan’s past military glory and claiming Diaoyu Islands is the first move.
China is watching closely and is preparing for the day the Japanese make the next move. There will be no nonsense, and no need for the National People’s Congress to approve. Any Japanese officials landing on the islands will be war.

War is imminent in East Asia
Abe warned China that it would not tolerate the ‘use of fodrce to change status quo’ in East Asia, a reference to the Diaoyutai dispute. And Japan has been acting aggressively by scrambling fighter jets to intercept Chinese aircraft in international airspace in the vicinity of the disputed islands. Such rattling of sabre has been what the Japanese were used to in the past, and the use of force to change the status quo, like invading all the countries in East and Southeast Asia were what the Japanese did during the Second World War.
Japan is still acting and behaving as if it is the undisputed military power of the region and China is still the Sick Man of Asia. In today’s context, China is in a better position to warn Japan and be the provocative one. Instead, Japan is still thinking that it is their right and think they could invade and run wild into China. Abe and his military hawks better have their heads check. Japan today is on its own, encircled by Russia, China and the two Koreas and Taiwan in the South. Any outbreak of hostility will see old scores being settled. Yes, Japan can count on the Americans, and there will be a big military battle at sea if the combatants can limit the scale of the war and the theatre of action.
Today, the cities is both China and Japan have so densely populated that bombings could be so destructive beyond the imagination of anyone. The scale of destruction and death in one day could be more than the whole of World War Two. But the Japanese would not want to think so and continuously provocating China for a showdown.
China has replied to Abe’s threat that any act against Chinese aircraft or ships will be an act of war. This is the first time the word ‘war’ is being used in response to Abe’s threat and warning of military action. By making such harsh statements, Abe is forcing the Chinese to take even stronger stand to face up to him.
War is imminent and a very violent and bloody one when it starts. There is no way the two countries can limit the scale of war and the participation of other countries, notably the Americans on the side of the Japanese, and Russia, the two Koreas and Taiwan on the side of China. Historical debt will be settled and the Ryukyu island chain will likely be reverted to Chinese rule, and the Koreans will make sure their islands will remain with Korea. Russians may be tempted to expand their grasp from 4 islands to a few more in the North Sea.

Japan cooking the west coast of the USA with radiation
The world is still sleeping while the Obama went to bed with Abe and keeping an eye closed to the epic disaster coming out of Fukushima. 300 tons of radio active waste are flowing into the Pacific Ocean and heading towards the west coast of the USA. An environmental disaster that will cripple the world’s livestock and change the face of the earth is happening right before our eyes.
Michael T. Snyder, a former Washington D.C. attorney who now publishes The Truth and a new thriller entitled “The Beginning Of The End”, wrote an article titled ‘28 Signs That The West Coast Is Being Absolutely Fried With Nuclear Radiation From Fukushima’ and this can be viewed at,

http://www.globalresearch.ca/28-signs-that-the-west-coast-is-being-absolutely-fried-with-nuclear-radiation-from-fukushima/5355280
The signs are clear and presented a stark reality that is getting worse by the day. In his concluding comments he wrote this, ‘Yale Professor Charles Perrow is warning that if the cleanup of Fukushima is not handled with 100% precision that humanity could be threatened “for thousands of years“…

“Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous, and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that would be uncontrollable. The radiation emitted from all these rods, if they are not continually cool and kept separate, would require the evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo.
Because of the radiation at the site the 6,375 rods in the common storage pool could not be continuously cooled; they would fission and all of humanity will be threatened, for thousands of years.”’
The Americans are still trying to tolerate this crime against humanity and mother earth and all the creatures in the oceans and allowing Tokyo to take its time to mess around with a worsening situation. It affects everyone on this planet. We are being poisoned by the radioactive fallouts from Fukushima. The Japanese are still exporting radioactive products from the region and seas as safe for consumption. The only consolation is that the Americans on their west coast will be the first to be cooked and act as a warning to what’s more to come.

PS. This is an interesting video clip of a speech by Hollywood director Oliver Stone at Hiroshima to commemorate the atomic bomb on the city. Oliver was a VIP and invited to make a keynote speech and he did, and the Japanese banned his speech after that. It is only 11.33 mins and a truth about how evil and hypocritical the Japanese were and how the world was misled by their superficial veneer of politeness that hid an ugly and shameless monster. The speech was truly shocking to the Japanese. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7a8LJbV48Pc

The Japanese govt lying through its teeth about Fukushima
RELATED: Top Scientist: Another Fukushima Quake Would Mean US Evacuation, ‘Bye Bye Japan’
‘“Fukushima is the most terrifying situation that I can imagine,” Suzuki said, adding that another earthquake could trigger a potentially catastrophic, nuclear disaster.
“The fourth [reactor] has been so badly damaged that the fear is if there’s another earthquake of a 7 or above then that building will go and all hell breaks loose,” he said, adding that the chances of an earthquake measuring 7 or above in Japan over the next three years were over 95 percent.
“If the fourth [reactor] goes under an earthquake and those rods are exposed, then it’s bye, bye, Japan and everybody on the west coast of North America should be evacuated. And if that isn’t terrifying, I don’t know what is,” Suzuki said….’
The above quote is from a report dated 7 Nov 13. Feeling comfortable or uncomfortable? I don’t mean so much about Sinkies, I mean the Japanese and the Americans on the West Coast of America. And countries like eastern Russia, Korea and China are too close for comfort. When Japan goes under because Mother Nature gives it a kick, many countries will suffer an equally disastrous effect from the nuclear fallout.
And it is not just these countries, the live stocks in the Oceans, not only the Pacific, will ultimately be inedible. What would life be like when food is scarce? One thing for sure, the Japanese and the Americans can fall back on their defence treaty to defend each other against the radioactivity coming from Fukushima, provided there are still Japanese left in Japan. Maybe the whole of Japan will be quarantined and there will be an international blockage of the Japanese island to keep the Japanese in the islands of Japan.

Abe unmasked, or should it be Japan unmasked?
The visit by Abe to the Yasukuni Shrine puts all doubts to rest as to the real intention of Abe and his administration. All the disguises have now been taken down and Japan is making its claim to remilitarize and resume its imperial ambition as a military power. The last cheap lie by Abe that his visit to the Shrine was to pledge for world peace is not going to deceive even the most pathetic believer that Japan is coming out to be a peaceful member of the international community. For the last couple of years of his administration, Abe has been doing one thing consistently, that is the rearming of Japan, increasing military expenditure and committing Japanese forces to foreign soils and the oceans, and making war cries of Japanese Imperial ambition.
China and the Koreas have been reading him rightly all this while and refused to speak to him. With the encouragement and backing of the Empire, Abe is unstoppable in his pursuit of a militant Japan to reclaim its place by the use of force. It is flexing its military muscles in the East China Sea and the South China Sea, vowing to support countries to challenge China.
Japan under his administration is edging closer to war with China and the Koreas everyday. China and the Koreas, and those Asean states should remind themselves of what an aggressive and expansionist Japan could do to them. History must not be allowed to repeat itself with the Japanese running across East and Southeast Asia. Japan is no longer hiding this ambition. It will commence its imperialist plan to expand its military might to resume its former status as the number one military power in the region, unless it is being stopped. This is going to be very difficult when it is not going alone but with the full support of the American Empire.
It would take the might of the Chinese, Russian and the two Koreans to be able to resist the military dominance of Japan and the American Empire over East and Southeast Asia. The naked ambition of the Japanese and the Americans are no longer a pretense. It is very real. The American pivot is not for peace but for domination.

First time Kishore sounded so hollow
Kishore’s article in the media yesterday, ‘How to prevent a war between China and Japan’ gave one a little anticipation that he was offering some enlightening wisdom to a historical Gordian Knot. His recommendation was anything but a sign of lacking in depth in the understanding of China Japan relations and the history of the Diaoyu Island dispute.
The Noda govt before Abe put on a farcical act claiming that it was trying to defuse a nationalistic move to buy the Islands by Shintaro Ishihara, the Tokyo governor. The buying or selling of the Islands by any Japanese is offensive to the Chinese govt and the Chinese people. The excuse by the Noda govt to buy the Islands instead was taking the Chinese people and govt as fools. It was a national insult to think the Chinese did not know what the whole play was about.
This kind of offensive act at the expense of China was prevalent in the 19th and 20th century by Imperialist Japan. Such acts were committed over and over again to violate the national sovereignty of China and grabbing chunks of Chinese territories. The humiliating acts were possible at a time when China was the Sick Man of Asia, invaded and semi colonized by the European powers and Japan.
A renewed China that is good enough to keep the Americans from attempting wild designs on Chinese territories would not give an inch to a little Japan intent to keep the Diaoyu Islands it seized from Manchu China. And for Kishore to suggest that China would be pleased if Abe would to sell the Islands to any Japanese non govt entity would appease China must be, not being rude, patronizing and naďve.
The ignorance on China Japan historical disputes is showing. China would never give up taking back the Islands. No country with the military means would allow a weaker nation to occupy its territories. Japan can go on an arms race with
China, even with the backing of the Americans, it would still end up suffering a bloody nose this time. And attempt to start a war will see Chinese soldiers in Japan and returning the favour with Nankin vividly in the minds of all Chinese. Japan may want to commit to another suicidal defence of the main Japanese islands like in Okinawa and the Pacific Islands defending against the American forces. China now has absolute numerical superiority in all fields of military hardware and headcounts.
The game has changed. China is now not a helpless underdeveloped and ill equipped or ill prepared poor country. It has the full compliments of all the arms of a full fledged superpower and a massive war industry to go with. Japan can try to go on an arms race with China and see if it has the unlimited resources to do so. Even the Americans are bankrupting itself trying to maintain its huge armed forces and will be broke without having to fight a war.
If Japan is bent on keeping the Islands, it is a matter of when before China take the Islands back by force. There is no other option, no buying and selling of the Islands by the Japanese in anyway that would be acceptable to China. The only way for Japan to avoid a showdown with China is to return the Islands voluntarily and gain more goodwill and clean up its war debt with China.
China or any other country will never compromise on its core national interest. Diaoyu Islands are everything about China, about China as a respectable nation, as a superpower. There can be no compromise on territorial integrity.

1914-2014, Hitler-Shinzo Abe

China is fuming mad with Shinzo Abe’s comparison of the new geopolitical situation in Asia today as similar to that of 1914 with the rise of militarism. A more appropriate comparison would be the similarities between what Abe is doing and that of Hitler prior to the WW2.

Abe and his hawkish ministers and a new consciousness among the Japanese to want to revive their military past as the number One military power in Asia, are all eager to change history and a return of Imperial Japan. Abe’s agenda is crystal clear and what he wants cannot be concealed by his lies about peace in Asia. He is rewriting the history of Japan’s aggression in Asia, he is rearming Japan, he is challenging China and Korea. He is tearing into bits the Pacifist Constitution imposed on Japan by the Americans and now with the Americans encouraging him to do so as a pawn to contain a rising China.

In the course of merely a year, Abe has acted in all ways aggressively and provocatively against its neighbours, claiming islands, scrambling fighter aircraft and naval craft in an offensive manner, challenging the rights of its neighbours to their territorial airspace. He did not mince any words about containing China and even war with China.

Abe is now launching a diplomatic offensive to form military alliances with regional countries to gang up against China. The new reality is that things are not quite the same today. Asia does not have a number of small nations to be invaded like Europe in the early 1900s. The Koreans would not allow Japan to repeat its colonisation of their country. China could simply sit on Japan and shit would literally ooze out from its orifices. India is a super power in her own right and would not be led by the nose by a smaller regional power like Japan.

Further south, Vietnam and the Philippines know that taking on China is futile and it would be to their advantage to grow and prosper together in peace. Maybe the shallow minded Pinoys would be willing partner to the American pivot and join hands with the Japanese to form a military alliance to take on China. That is about the best that Abe can ever achieve.

The rest of Asia would not be so silly to want to go to war with Japan and fight for the Japanese to ruin their economies. And with the memories of an aggressive and vicious Japanese army plundering through their countries, looting and raping their people, it is unlikely that they want it to be repeated or to be ruled or led by the Japanese.

The aggressive moves of Abe must be stopped just like Nazi Hitler. Europe failed because of their appeasement policy towards Hitler and paid a heavy price for it. Asia would have to pay a similar price if they did not stop this crazy imperialist Japanese PM from running wild. Hitler was defeated. Imperial Japan was defeated. Abe can never ever think that he could do anything better with the new geopolitical situation in Asia. The people that would suffer most would be the neutral Japanese. Any attempt by Abe to commit aggression against its neighbours would see Japan invaded for sure and the big cities in ruins.

The Asian states would have to stop this Japanese madness or stay clear and remain neutral. The Japanese people too must come to their senses to avoid a war with its neighbours even if they think they have the mighty Americans on their side. Japan will be the battle ground, the front line, the war zone should war breaks out. They must not ever dream of invading China or Korea or any of the Asian states like before. It is a foolish dream and a very destructive one, of self destruction.

Japan is up to mischief again
After being defeated in WW2 and suffering from two Atomic bombs for its aggressive invasion of its neighbours and trying to conquer and rule South East Asia, Japan has not learnt its lessons on wars. It is stirring up tension and trying to create misgivings among the countries in the region with misinformation. In its latest attempt it falsely reported that China was trying to introduce another ADIZ in the South China Sea. By saying so, it is sowing discord between China and the South East Asian neighbours.
What the Japanese are doing today is more dangerous than in the Second World War. Then it was more or less fighting the war alone after dividing the world and areas of control with the Nazis in Germany. It was ambitious enough to want to rule the whole of East Asia and South East Asia. Today it is joining forces with the Americans in its renewed attempt to be the top regional power of the region. And in this announcement the Americans are happily joining in to warn China of declaring an ADIZ in the region. The arrogant Americans take pleasure to warn every country they so choose as their right as the evil Empire. The Americans knew that it was a lie fabricated by the Japanese but jumped on it as an excuse to threaten China. An upmanship to tell the world it can still do so to any country and with the implied threat of a military attack.
China is not going to accept being bullied by the Americans any more. It could use the opportunity to defy the Americans and impose an ADIZ and see what the Americans are going to do about it. However, China has a bigger interest in forging a closer relation with the South East Asian countries and would not want to make such a move to give the Japanese and the Americans an advantage in crying wolf.
The East China Sea ADIZ is a necessary move as Japan and the Americans posed an immediate danger to China’s security and a threat of an air strike. Japan also has an ADIZ stretching to the Chinese coast. It was thus a tit for tat move directed against the Japanese. The South East Asian countries do not pose any threat to China except a few irritations from the Philippines and Vietnam. Both can easily be dealt with by a cane. And both would behave without the American gangsters provoking them from behind.
Japan is raring its hostile intent all over again and is reckless, without a care on the consequences of inciting a war with China. They have no regards to how destructive a war today would be, with Japan’s major cities flatten and gone up in smokes should it escalate into a nuclear war. This is how preposterous and crazy the Japanese are in the pursuit of their wild imperialist ambition, to be the Number One military power in the region.
Japan is willing to risk the total annihilation of its country and people. The right wing militant group is simply mad to think that war with China is an option, a tea party.
China rightfully replied sternly that it would “‘respond effectively to any provocation’ that risked disrupting order in East Asia.” China must make it very clear that it would go to war with Japan and the Americans if provoked in order to keep them away from adventurism. The two gangsters are very trigger happy and the use of military force to advance their national goals is in their blood.
The countries of the world, particularly in South East Asia, should not be a party to this madness. They only have to lose, to be dragged into a very destructive war, and nothing to gain from an open military conflict.
The wild military ambition of the mad Japanese must be stopped in its path now. America must be told off to stop agitating and inciting war in the region.
