The appeasement to Abe
When Adolf Hitler started the militarization of Germany, the European powers looked on quietly, hoping that he was only rebuilding Germany to protect itself. England, the dominant power than adopted a policy of appeasement, allowing Hitler to expand his armed forces freely as he wished. When Hitler finally invaded the rest of Europe it was too late to cry. Europe almost went under if the Americans did not intervened, but at a very high cost on human lives and sufferings. There would be no holocaust and millions of Jews would not have suffered the cruelties of the Germans. European countries would not have been put to ruins and their citizens killed and maimed for life. It was too late to regret for the failure to stop the militarization of Germany.
In East Asia today, the forces that would lead to a third World War have been set in motion just like the days of Adolf Hitler. Japan, under the Abe Administration, is going the same path as Hitler’s Germany. Military build up and remilitarization are top priority. Abe has a free hand to do as he pleases, like Adolf Hitler, and better still, with the encouragement of the Americans. The Americans are setting the stage for a major war with China with Japan on its side and whichever East Asian and South East Asian countries it can pull into its ranks.
Japan is the main assault force for the Americans against China. Japan’s military is being beefed up with American technology and weapons. Japan’s intention is blatantly displayed to the world by the appointing of Hawkish Defence Minister General Nakatani. The hawks are on the ascent. More military acquisition and building of military hardware like assault warships, aircraft carriers and a secret nuclear armament programme, ignoring the wrath of God with the crippling of Fukushima nuclear plant. All nuclear power stations must be run to produce the weapon grade plutonium for nuclear weapons production.
The Americans quietly acquiesced, not appeasement, by allowing Japan to retain 300kg of weapons grade plutonium ‘loaned’ to Japan for research purposes. What was the intent? These could easily produce 40 to 50 nuclear weapons and the only farce that the Americans are doing is to put on an act of wanting them back. Japan is also in possession of 44,000 kg of home grown plutonium from its nuclear power stations. How many more nuclear bombs could they produce?
Though officially not admitted, Japan could be in possession of hundreds of nuclear weapons today with the connivance and approval of the Americans. And the Americans are allowing the Japanese to rewrite their pacifist constitutions so that it could go back to its past aggression military adventure, to conduct wars.
What is happening to the remilitarization of Japan is more than appeasement but a concerted effort promoted by the Americans to use the Japanese, as a nuclear power, to contain China and to hold China at ransom with the threat of a nuclear war. It is easier to get the ambitious and conceited Japanese to take on China and let Asia burns.
The rise of a military Japan is almost complete with the rest of the world turning a blind eye and with the Americans providing all the assistance and approval for a Japan to return to its Imperialist past. Shinzo Abe is the new Adolf Hitler of the 21st Century. The world is being prepared for a 3rd World War by the USA and Japan with East Asia as the battle ground.

Yukawa and Goto – Déjà vu for Abe
Abe and his hawks are furious. It is like 911 happening to Japan. It is like the attack on Hebdo in Paris. All these were nothing compared to the massacre at Nanjing and the millions of Chinese and Southeast Asians killed by the Japanese during the invasion by the Japanese Imperial Army. But why are the Japanese up in arms asking for revenge? Abe said he would not forgive. The fucker expect the Chinese and silly Singaporeans to forgive Japan for the invasion and massacre in WW2. The rest of Southeast Asians also quite happy to forgive the Japanese for invading their countries, killing their people and looting their treasures.
Now why is Abe and his warmonger hawks so angry about? Oh it was the beheading of two miserable Japanese by ISIS. To the Japanese this is an earth shaking event. It is the perfect reason Abe is waiting for, to rearm Japan and return to the Japanese Imperial military past. Yes Japan now has a good reason to rearm and go to war. Japan is planning to send troops to fight the ISIS.
For the last part, sending Japanese soldiers to fight the ISIS, I support. I would like to see how good the Japanese soldiers are against the ISIS fighters. I would like to see how the ISIS deal with the Japanese Imperialists. I would like to see how the USA and the West come out in support of the rearmament of Japan as a military power and conducting warfare again like the past, like the Americans and the West.
Abe and his hawks must be celebrating and shouting ‘Déjà vu!’ It is a godsend excuse to rearm Japan and to go to war.

Savages and animals not wanted to patrol Asian waters
ISIS cut the throat of two Japanese that had no reasons to be In Syria. And the Japanese, especially Abe and his Imperialist ministers went berserk, stomping their feet and vouching revenge. Cutting the heads of two innocent civilians is just unacceptable. It is barbaric, inhuman, vicious, cruelty of the worst kind. Only savages and animals would commit such monstrous acts. Abe and the Japanese are swearing that they would rearm to be able to go to Syria to attack the ISIS and save the two Japanese.
In 1937, the Chinese did not go to Japan to have their heads severed. Several millions were killed, including pregnant women and babies, with their heads cut off by the Japanese who went to China. And many more heads were cut off in Southeast Asia, in the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaya and Indonesia. I don’t think any heads were cut off in Singapore as some Sinkies are very happy to forget this part of their history. They are also in praise of the Japanese as very nice people, the Americans said told them. Yes the Americans said so, despite the stealth attack on Pearl Harbour that killed several thousand American boys and girls that were sleeping after a night of parties.
Did the Americans remember the atrocities of the Japanese against them and Asians? Or they did remember and would like to unleash these brutal savages, in business suits, to roam and rule Asia and Southeast Asia? The Americans are giving all their blessings and support to the Beast of Asia to rule again, to serve American interests in containing China, a country that has not invaded Southeast Asia, did not commit genocide on the Southeast Asians, but branded as a dangerous and aggressive country. And the descendants of savages in Japan are now painted as the nice and peaceful people, dependable and trustworthy to keep peace in the region.
Are the Japanese honest, reliable and trustworthy? Abe and his gang are whitewashing all their dastard and barbaric deeds in World War 2. They refused to acknowledge, refused to remember the evil things they done to the people of Asia and Southeast Asia. They cannot remember the Rape of Nanjing, Unit 731, the colonization of Korea, the comfort women and all the hundreds of thousands of beheading. And they are fuming mad when two Japanese were beheaded in Syria when they should not be there.
Can the descendants of these savage invaders be invited to guard the waters of East Asia? Can they be trusted to rule the waters of East Asia? Only fools will believe that the Japanese can be trusted to rule over them. I would be more comfortable if the Japanese are invited to rule the Indian Ocean as they have not committed the barbarity they did in East and Southeast Asia. The Americans could also invite the Japanese to rule the seas of eastern Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean. The Japanese did not have any bad records there except for Pearl Harbour.
The Asians and Southeast Asians must say no to the savages and invaders that cut off their citizens’ heads to impose fear in them when they invaded. Would the Japanese remember the hundreds of thousands of people’s heads their invading armies had cut off? Their heads were cut off like the Kenji and Yukawa. Where are the revulsion, the anger, the contempt, and the remorse?

Japan, who is the real devil?
A recent AFP report had Prince Naruhito chastising Shinzo Abe for trying to whitewash Japan’s crimes against humanity in the Second World War. Today, former PM Maruyama warned Abe for trying to undo all the works of previous PM and discredit them with his revisionist policies and turn them into liars.
‘Japan's crown prince has warned of the need to remember World War II "correctly", in a rare foray into an ideological debate as nationalist politicians seek to downplay the country's historic crimes.
In an unusual intervention in the discussion, Naruhito's mild-mannered broadside was being interpreted in some circles as a rebuke to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, a key figure in the right-wing drive to minimise the institutionalised system of wartime sex slavery. They even insulted the Koreans by saying the Korean women were willing to serve the Japanese armies as prostitutes, hundreds of thousands of them.
"Today when memories of war are set to fade, I reckon it is important to look back our past with modesty and pass down correctly the miserable experience and the historic path Japan took from the generation who know the war to the generation who don't,"
During the war crime trial against Japan after WW2, the Emperor Hirohito, as the Sun God, was shielded from all the blame for Japanese aggression and atrocities against the people and countries they invaded. But everyone was quite sure that the Emperor was the one that gave the order, and the guilty one. The Japanese Imperial Army and the Japanese soldiers were merely soldiers obeying the Emperor’s orders. If any one was to be blamed it must be the Emperor. But due to some horse tradings, the Japanese Emperor was spared the embarrassment and punishment. Not guilty but guilty.
Today, we are seeing the Prince, a member of the Imperial Household, feeling remorseful at what Abe was trying to do to rewrite history, to change historical facts and to remilitarise Japan into another military power like its infamous past. And the Imperial Household is the one that is distancing itself from the civilian power that wanted otherwise. Is this the same as during WW2 when the Emperor was not for war but dragged into a war by those holding the real power, PM HidekiTojo and his rightist cabinet and those in the Imperial Army? If what we are seeing is the truth and should Japan ended up in a Third World War, the people to be blamed must be Abe and his right wing govt and not the Imperial Household.
What actually happened that led Japan to its aggression against its neighbours? Was the Imperial Household wrongly blamed for the war and the criminals were really the non royalties and rightly executed for war crimes? Is Prince Naruhito trying to say something to redress the wrongs done to his grandfather as the one that issued the order for war when it was the civilians that dragged Japan into WW2 like what Abe is doing today, dragging Japan into a WW3?

Who is the real Shinzo Abe?

Tokyo Subway Gassing Was Abe’s First Strike

By Yoichi Shimatsu
3-19-15


This essay by the former general editor of The Japan Times Weekly, is the first in a retrospective series of articles on the Tokyo Subway Gassing issued on the 20th anniversary of that precedent-setting attack.
Within three hours of the Tokyo subway gassing that felled 20,000 commuters, our reporting team realized that the government was manipulating and censoring the news media to divert public attention from state sponsorship for terrorist cells planted inside the Aum Shinrikyo cult. In open challenge to censorship and disinformation, our investigative journalists, in tandem with Japanese-language Takarajima 30 (Treasure Island) magazine, exposed the key political heavyweights who had financed and directed secret agents inside the neo-Buddhist sect. The aim of Aum’s sponsors was to obtain nerve gas, nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles from post-Soviet Russia and Ukraine in order to stock Japan’s clandestine arsenal of weapons of mass destruction.
Working with the only two news outlets willing to print leaks from honest but disgruntled police detectives and government officials, our editors recognized that the subway gassing was not just a crazed plot to trigger a global Armaggedon, a factually unfounded theme repeatedly cited by the collaborationist media. The untold story is that the subway attack was part of a larger coup attempt by the neo-militarist faction inside the powerful coalition of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and Clean Government Party (Komeito). The paralysis of the nation’s capital was a preliminary step toward isolating and eliminating those respected personages who defend the antiwar Constitution.
The retrogressive coup failed for several reasons. First, on the week after the gassing, an assassination attempt against National Police chief Takaji Kunimatsu was foiled by his nearly miraculous recovery from four gunshot wounds. His survival rallied those constitutionalists opposed to the shadowy alliance of neo-militarist politicians, yakuza, defense corporations and the nuclear industry. Second, our tiny remnant of the free press was able to sustain public discussion as well as discredit politicians who sponsored terrorist elements inside Aum Shinrikyo.
Unflinching truth in reporting reversed the pendulum of political opinion against the coup leaders. A few big fish like Liberal Democrat spymaster Toshio Yamaguchi were exposed, removed from office and imprisoned for their role in creating Aum. Other guilty parties got away amid the confusion that gripped the capital. Among those escapees was a WMD specialist named Shinzo Abe, who had acted as mentor of arms dealer Kiyohide Hayakawa and Aum’s “science minister” Hideo Murai….

The full report can be viewed at http://rense.com/general96/tokyosub.html. This would give the background to what Shinzo Abe has been doing and explain his aggressive and militant policies that could lead to a war with China. The Japanese themselves are wary of his intention and where he is leading Japan forward, to a war of mutual destruction with China. Abe apparently is the connect between his father and the inhuman chemical and biological Unit 731 of World War II and the hawkish govt of today’s Japan. His proud appearance in a photograph in front of a fighter aircraft with the marking 731 is no coincidence. He knew what it meant and is telling the world what he is up to.
Shinzo Abe is a very dangerous man.

Holocaust and 731
When Shinzo Abe posed in a fighter aircraft with the marking 731 boldly printed on its side, China and South Korea were furious. It was the most insulting and offensive that a rascal Japanese Prime Minister could do to insult its neighbours and as good as showing his middle finger to China and South Korea, and with a hidden message that he would do it again. The South Korean govt lambasted him as being vile. It was not provocative, it was outrageously provocative.
What Abe had done in 2013 was like a German Chancellor sitting in a German tank with the marking ‘Holocaust’ boldly printed on its side so that no one can miss what he is trying to say. And to add insult to injury, he put up his thumb to mean good and smiling like crazy.
What would the Jews feel if indeed a similar act is done and flashed across the media? This is how low Abe had gone and China must be ready to take on this beast and Japan. Abe and his Japan are preparing for a rerun of a 731 in China and Korea.
It is unforgiveable for this asshole to do that as a Prime Minister of a country. And they expect the Chinese and Koreans to take it lying down? There is nothing more provocative than this act, rubbing salt into an old wound. Let’s hope Abe has the gut to do another Marco Polo Incident in China. Oops, there is no such chance today. But he could try something similar in Diaoyu Island or the islands in the South China Sea and see what would happen to Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya, Kobe and all the major cities in Japan in the aftermath. And China could build a few 731 experimental stations to show the Japanese what 731 means to them.

Abe, the Genie of War unleashed
Japan, the menace of WW2 with its abominable armies invading the countries of Asia and committing atrocities and barbarities, inflicting untold miseries to the people of these countries, was hauled in by the USA and kept tightly in a bottle for the last 6 decades, not to be able to do mischief anymore. The wild ambitions of an aggressive people out to conquer and rule the world, a people thinking it was right to kill and to rule with the gun, were snuffed out after its devastating defeat in the Pacific Ocean, and not before two Atomic bombs to bring them down on their knees.
With the Genie of War trapped in the bottle, Asia enjoyed 6 decades of peace and economic growth. The Japanese today are claiming credit for the peace that they destroyed, for good life they turned into horrors of war. They are projecting to the world that they are peace loving people, kind, compassionate and benign. They love peace and are the protector and guardian of peace. The want to guard and protect peace in Asia with their military might again!
In the same breath they have torn away their pacifist Constitution forbidding them from engaging in war. They have lied to the world, with the connivance and approval of the USA, ironically the same country that locked the Japanese away from their guns, and have built a massive military force that could wreck havoc to the countries of Asia all over again. And this time it is more deadly as they are joined, hand in hand with the Americans, and armed to their teeth, to use their military arsenal again, in the name of peace, but talking about going to war and ready to indulge in warfare. This is done with the approval of the USA. It used to be white men spoke in fork tongue. Now this black man in the White House is also learning to speak in fork tongue like the white men.
The Americans have let the Genie of War and destruction out of the bottle for their vested interest of world domination. And Japan is singing the same song, to walk and fight side by side with the Americans should the Americans wage wars with any country. This must be music to the ears of the Americans. Now the world’s number One military power, the war monger and agitator, has a willing accomplice all too trigger happy, to lend a helping hand, so as to relive its military glory as a warlike nation.
Can the world have peace with the Genie of War clothed in the cloak of peace but armed to the teeth? Can the people of Asia trust the Abe and his Japan with his revisionist policies, to rewrite history, to erase the Imperialist past of Japanese aggression against other Asian countries, no Nanjing Massacre, no comfort women, no war of conquest, claiming that they were all lies? The Japanese are coming in peace, with their warships and guns, to bring peace to Asia again. Didn’t Asia have peace without the Japanese? Wasn’t it the Japanese that started the war in Asia? Why were the Japanese soldiers in all the countries of Asia and ruling the people with fear and the threats of beheading, as colonies?

Abe a man of peace or war?
Many idiots still believe this man is a man for peace. Look at what he has been doing. The first thing and most important thing he is doing is to tear away Japan’s pacifist Constitution. What is this pacifist Constitution? It was imposed on Japan after the defeat in WW2 for invading countries in Asia by the Americans. Japan is forbidden by the pacifist Constitution to conduct war. And Abe is tearing this away, for peace, a man of peace? This is the Hitler of the 21st Century!
What else is he doing? He has been sending Japanese navy to engage in military operations under the guise of peacekeeping. He has been encouraging the Philippines to take on China and openly announced that he would support the Philippines in a war with China. He is joining the world’s most belligerent country in war games!
He is proposing to change the pacifist Constitution so that Japan can go to war in aid of the Americans, not just to defend Japan when under attack. According to Robin Harding in his article in the Today paper titled ‘Quest to revise pacifist Constitution could cost Abe politically’, he wrote, ‘Abe’s goal is to pass laws to reinterpret Japan’s pacifist Constitution, allowing it to exercise “collective” self defence. That would let Japan come to the military aid of an ally such as the US, instead of merely defending itself.’
The changing of the pacifist Constitution will give Japan the green light to conduct war all over again. It would pave the way for the invasion and destruction of Japan by its arch enemies in Russia, China and the Koreas. These countries were invaded by the Japanese and have many unsettled scores to settle. And they are now more powerful than Japan individually and a combined force of the three countries would easily lead to the dismantling of Japan once and for all and for the good of East Asia. This menace of war would be forever crippled and not allowed to do any more harm to any Asian countries.
This is the fate awaiting Japan should Abe be successful in his belligerent policies and tempting fate, that Japan is good for another go at war. He simply got intoxicated in the past glory of Japan and the legacies of his father and grandfather thinking that he could redo what they had done and succeed to build a Japanese Empire. Abe would bring total destruction to Japan and the Japanese as a free and proud people. A defeated Japan by a combined force of Russians, Chinese and Koreans would be a nightmare they never dream would happen or could happen but would happen. The balance of power is no longer in Japan’s favour.
Whither Japan under the Asian Hitler in Abe? The naiveity and recklessness of this man is unbelievable. But he has a lot of hawkish Imperialist minded Japanese that want to go along with him, to push their luck one more time.
At the moment China, Russia and the Koreas are still sleeping and Abe is taking the initiative to build a military alliance for his aggression in the region. The three countries must wake up and take seize the initiative, join forces to clip the wings of Abe and his Imperialist ambition. If they don’t do it, they will have to pay a heavy price for appeasement against this new Hitler in the making.

The lying and mischievous Japanese
Japan has published a White Paper branding China as an aggressive nation and putting up some of the unilateral acts committed by China as hostile acts. These included building oil rigs and structures in the waters within China’s sovereignty, reclaiming islands in the South China Sea and claiming Diaoyu Islands seized by the Japanese through war. China’s growing military might is also claimed as an act of hostility as proof that China is an aggressive country.
On the other hand Japan is a friendly country but is tearing its Pacifist Constitution that forbids Japan to conduct wars of aggression so that Japan can conduct wars again. And what had Japan done to China before? Japan declared wars unilaterally on China in several occasions in the 19th and 20th centuries. It invaded China, attempting to conquer and colonize China and colonized Korea, putting it under oppressive Japanese rule. It invaded the whole of South East Asia and committed wars of aggression, killing wantonly, forcing neighbouring countries’ women to become sex slaves, robbing the conquered countries, raping, looting and killing millions of Chinese. It still held on to Chinese territories like Diaoyu Islands and renaming them as Senkakus, as Japanese territories.
It is now telling lies about China like it did before it invaded China unprovoked, unilaterally, to conquer China. It was defeated by the Allied Forces led by the Americans after it conducted a sneak attack on Pearl Harbour, destroying the American Pacific Fleet and killing thousands of American servicemen. Now with the connivance of the Americans, it is reclaiming its right as an Imperial military power to conduct wars again.
Who is the aggressive and dangerous country? Who is the peaceful country that was violated, invaded, lost territories and millions of live of its citizens, and now wanting to reclaim its lost territories due to conquest?
Japan a peaceful country? It has been peaceful in the last 70 years because it was defeated by the Americans and prevented from becoming another menace, forced to accept a Pacifist Constitution. It has no choice but to behave like a good boy. Now it is given the consent by the Americans to tear away its Pacifist Constitution, to remilitarize and to conduct wars again. It is showing its intent to be the aggressive and barbaric Japan all over again, spreading lies to start wars, just like the Americans.
The world and the Americans would live to regret once the Japanese have fully rearmed to take on the world again, and America would have to repay for the two atomic bombs on Japan and the millions of Japanese killed in the Battles of the Pacific Islands. The complacent Americans would have to relive Pearl Harbour once again, with more destructive forces than 1941.
The passing of the new bills to allow Japan to conduct wars is the clearest proof of the real Japanese intent and what the real Japanese are, like their forefathers during the Second World War, aggressive and imperialist militants. All the public protests against the Abe and his military ambition are only a sly act to deceive the world that they want peace and did not want wars. The majority in the Diet tells the whole truth and nothing but the truth of Japanese military ambition.
Good luck Americans!

70 years of nice and polite Japanese
Many silly Asians are trumpeting the goodness of the Japanese in the last 70 years of peace and stability in the region. Yes, after their invasion of Asia with the wild ambition of ruling Asia by brute force and cruelties failed and defeated by the Americans, and with the badly hurt Americans out to avenge the sneaky attack on Pearl Harbour, the Japanese war demon was bottled up and kept under lock and key. The Japanese were not given a chance to be their evil self again. The constitution was forcefully changed to a pacifist one, denouncing wars and forbidden to go to war. And to make sure it stayed that way, the Americans sat on Japan like a semi colony. American forces are still in many bases in Japan, outwardly to counter China and North Korea, but at the same time keeping a check on Japanese ambition. Japan would not be allowed to do mischief again without the approval of the Americans.
And the world has peace for 70 years. And Asia and South East Asia have peace as well. Without a sword, the Japanese went around in briefcases and business suits to woo the Asians for trade and commerce. These are the activities they were allowed to engage in. The peaceful Japanese were an enforced animal. They swallowed their pride and arrogance, hid their aggressive and belligerent nature and bowed and bowed all the way. Such nice and polite people cannot be war criminals. Many Asians today could believe that the Japanese were so barbaric and depraved during the war years. What is the true nature of the Japanese if the forceful hands of the Americans were removed? What is a true Japanese?
Historically the Japanese were a martial people, starting with piracies and attacking Koreans and Chinese merchant ships, they went further to conquer and to colonize Korea and semi conquered China. South East Asia was invaded and conquered and colonized in the same brutal way. The Japanese would attack a country when that country was seen as weak. They were so vile and wild as to think of conquering China and Asia. They succeeded and almost ruled China by force as their colony. And when they became the colonial masters, they were cruel and harsh, forget about the Hollywood romanticing of samurai honour. The Koreans lived under the rule of the Japanese for several decades like slaves. China lost millions in the invasion by the Japanese, and so were the South East Asians.
The pre war Japanese believed in power and being the aggressor when they were more powerful than their neighbours. They still believe in the Sun God and their destiny to rule the world. They were very nice, very polite, very peaceful, very gentlemen in the last 70 years not out of free choice, not by nature. Their hands were tied by the Americans.
Today, with the American Empire being challenged by a rising China, the Americans find it expedient to unleash the Japanese butcher to stop the rise of China. The Japanese are allowed to remilitarize with the consent and encouragement of the Americans. The last few years, and recently, the ugly Japanese are revealing themselves again, banging their chest and showing the middle finger to China. They wanted the right to engage and conduct wars. They have torn their pacifist Constitutions to bits. The public protest is only a minority, and done for public relations purposes. The majority of the Japanese wants to return to militarism, imperialism and a powerful Japan that can go to war. The passing of the bill to have the right to go to war is testimony to the real intent and nature of the Japanese, the real Japanese behind the mask of civility.
Without the Americans sitting on them, instead giving them the green light to become a military power, to conduct wars, Japan has come full circle, to be its militant and aggressive self once more. Asia and the world should brace themselves up for an aggressive Japan to create havoc and war. Yes, the rise of an aggressive and belligerent nation to be a global power, in Japan, will not be peaceful. It is building up its war arsenal like it did before the Second World War. The process of Japan’s rearmament and remilitarization is in full steam.
The Americans said yes, the western powers were muted, the silly Asians and South East Asians cannot remember the brute Imperial Japanese Army and the beheading of people and the colonizing of their countries. They only remember a falsified face of Japan in the last 70 years as a defeated invading country. They are going to live with the beast in their homes thinking that it is a nice domesticated pet.
Do they want to know the real Japanese? Do they want to read their histories again to understand what the real Japanese were like if not shackled?

Hiroshima and Nagasaki – Japan’s just desert
As the Japanese grief over the fate of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the lives lost when two Atom bombs fell on the two cities, many are still wondering whether the events to commemorate the dead and destruction of the two cities meant anything to the Japanese?
Kwok Kian Woon wrote a piece in the ST on 6 Aug titled, ‘A letter to Japanese friends on Hiroshima Day’ in the most friendly way possible to share Japan’s grief and politely asked the Japanese about the same question I asked above. Kwok Kian Woon quoted Kuo Pao Kun saying, ‘I think that of all peoples the Japanese have in their living memory the most profound understanding of the war because the Japanese were at the same time a very cruel aggressor and a victim of the cruelest experience of war….What is there in the Japanese psyche, what is there in the Japanese culture, that stops a people capable of deep, profound thinking coming out strongly as a people, not just a few individuals but as a people, to reflect openly and deeply about the war?
What did Kuo Pao Kun and Kwok Kian Woon wanted the Japanese to reflect about? The pain and destruction from Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not insignificant. But compared to the pain and suffering wrought by the Japanese on the millions of Asians from Korea, China in the North all the way down to South East Asia, to Indonesia, the Philippines and Burma, what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki were chicken feat. The pain and suffering and the lost of lives and destruction brought about by the invading barbaric forces of the Imperial Japanese Army were abominable. Can Japan and the Japanese people understand that? Can Japan and the Japanese people understand the thousands of Americans that were bombed and killed in Pearl Harbour without knowing what hit them? Can the Japanese understand the hundreds of thousands of American and Allies soldiers that died and maimed to fight them and to drive them back to the Japanese shores, all because Japan started an invasion to conquer and colonise other people?
Despite the polite words of Kwok Kian Woon and Kuo Pao Kun, the Japanese did not understand and did not learn anything about Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Japan under Abe and his militant cabinet is remilitarizing to be the same militant Japanese of pre defeated Japan. They are legitimizing themselves to go to war again. They want the right to go to war, to fight, destroy and kill again. They have burnt their pacifist constitution.
The Japanese did not learn anything from Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They do not mind Hiroshima and Nagasaki to be repeated again. Or they do understand what Hiroshima and Nagasaki meant and want to do another Hiroshima and Nagasaki on others, to avenge their defeat and their pain and suffering.
Let me quote Kuo Pao Kun again, ‘What is there in the Japanese psyche, what is there in the Japanese culture, that stops a people capable of deep, profound thinking coming out strongly as a people,….’ What is there for the Japanese people to know that they should not try or attempt to repeat what they did to the rest of Asia and to the Americans, and to live in peace instead of harbouring the ambition to go to war again, as a war mongering nation?
Japan must be warned not to allow Hiroshima and Nagasaki to happen again. They brought it upon themselves. Do they want history to repeat itself by flexing its military might and cherishing for war again?

Japan – Is it so difficult to apologise?
The Japanese are retracting on their apologies for their invasion, colonization and war atrocities to the countries that fell victims and the millions killed and maimed by them. They are asking how many times they must say sorry for their hideous crimes against the people of Asia and the destruction of their countries that set them back for many decades in development.
The answer, for as long as the Japanese remember their war dead in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, for as long as they find it important to visit Yasukuni Shrine to honour their dead soldiers that committed the crimes of invasion. These were criminals of wars, invading countries, bombing, burning, looting, killing, raping and committed all kinds of cruelties against other people. If the Japanese do not think it necessary to stop worshipping them and honouring them, why should they not continue to apologise to the countries and people that were victims of these criminals and the destruction and death they brought to them?
If Japan can honour the war criminals annually, if Japan can remember their dead due to the Atomic Bombs, why is it so difficult to apologise for their crimes against humanity? For how long should Japan apologise?
For as long as the people of these countries could feel the pain and humiliation caused by the Japanese. For as long as the Japanese continue to honour the criminals of these acts. For as long as the Japanese start to forget their evil deeds and cruelties against their neighbouring countries. For as long as it needs to remind the Japanese not to think it is acceptable to go to war again.

Abe’s words and deeds don’t match
In an article by a Martin Sieff appeaing in the Mypaper on 20 Aug 15, the author explained why Abe’s words didn on match his actions. In his view, he said Abe ‘believe that a few highly qualified and clearly limited expressions of polite regret can wipe clean Japan’s historical debt towards China’ and Korea. He asked, ‘Can the murderous, horrific slaughter of 20 million people in China alone from 1937 to 1945, not to mention the enslavement of the Koreans people for 35 years, be banished by 25 minutes of mumbled politeness?’
What Martin Sieff did not say about the colonization of the Koreans was the brutal oppression of the Korean people to alter their ethnicity and culture, to take on Japanese names and learn the Japanese language, in other words the Japanisation of the Koreans to become Japanese. And this was done in very harse and cruel ways, demeaning and insulting to the Koreans.
So, Abe thought what he said in 25 minutes was enough and Japanese can forget about their crimes against China and Korea and the rest of Asian. There is no need for the future generations of Japanese to apologise anymore.
And what has he been doing while apologizing at the same time? ‘Abe has pushed ahead consistently and relentlessly with policies to resurrect the Japanese armed forces and clear the way for their use far from Japanese territories and waters.’ Abe is repeating what his grandfather did in the Second World War and shoving aside the objections of the Emperor. Emperor Akihito and the royal house have been defending Article 9 of the Constitution and the values it embodies, to renounce war. If this is an indication of what the Emperor thinks, and if this was what his father, Emperor Hirohitho believed, we are seeing Japanese history being repeated. The hawkish politicians are seizing power to conduct wars and overruling the Emperor. A weak Emperor would eventually be put to blame for the war crimes committed by the politicians who would wage wars in the name of the Emperor.
Abe and his warlike politicians are unremorseful of their heinous war crimes and wanted the country to go to war in the name of defense, the same myth the Americans created to justify war. The Americans have been conducting wars all over the world since the end of World War 2 in the name of defending America and the rest of the world, in the name of peace. Japan under Abe is adopting the same warmongering formula, to reject its pacifist Constitution, to set Japan in the course for war.
How can China and Korea forgive a unrepentant Japan that arrogantly thinks a few words of apology could atone their war crimes against other countries and people?

Shinzo Abe’s mischievous intent
The Japanese govt is on the verge of passing the new security Bills to allow Japan to go to war. Abe and his supporters’ reasoning, China is getting stronger and more aggressive, it is thus necessary to rescind the pacifist Constitution so that Japan can now go to war with China. Is this reasoning real, valid, logical and sound?
The pacifist Constitution does not prevent Japan from building its so called ‘Defence Force’ to the current size that is second only to China but an even match in terms of technology and weaponry. The pacifist Constitution does not prevent Japan from defending itself against any attack by China or any country. The right and ability to defend Japan against a foreign invasion are never compromised under the pacifist Constitution. In addition, Japan is protected by the American nuclear umbrella and defence treaty that should China or any country attempts to attack Japan, the Americans would be obliged to come in to defend Japan. China or any country is no match to the Americans and would be naïve to conduct such a grave act. Japan’s national security is never threatened under the pacifist Constitution. The Americans have all the reasons to want to stop China from attacking Japan in their own interest.
What is changed with the new security Bills is that Japan can now go to war anywhere in the pretext of defending an ally. In other words, Japan wants the right to go to war again, to conduct wars like it did in the past, not the quoted threat from China. The new security Bills will put Japan on the same war path as Imperial Japan, to be another aggressive country that would resort to war as another form of diplomacy.
The pacifist Constitution forbids Japan to send it soldiers to fight outside Japa when it is none of Japan’s busines. This is the intent and the motive of Abe’s new security Bills, that Japan will be like the Americans, free to go to war with any country under whatever excuses and pretexts. The blood of a warlike and aggressive people is showing itself in Abe and his supporters. Japan wants to go to war, wants to conduct and engage in wars of aggression.

Nikkei Asian Review delirious about American adventure in the South China Sea
I just went through some articles in the Nikkei Asian Review and could not miss the trend of thoughts of the Japanese. They are delirious that a war between the US and China is in the offing. Here is a short article of the Japanese high expectation.
‘October 20, 2015 1:00 pm JST
US Third Fleet
115 naval vessels ready to help in west Pacific
KEN MORIYASU, Nikkei staff writer
TOKYO -- Vice Adm. Nora Tyson, the first female fleet commander in the history of the U.S. Navy, is responsible for the 115 vessels and 60,000 sailors that make up the powerful Third Fleet. Although the fleet's area of responsibility lies in the eastern Pacific -- an area extending from the international date line near Hawaii to the U.S. West Coast -- Tyson said she is ready to deploy her ships to the tension-prone western Pacific to assist the Seventh Fleet, based in Yokosuka, Japan.’

The key question is whether the Americans would be crazy enough to be nudged into a war with China over Chinese islands 10 thousands miles from their occupied Indian territories. By the look of things, the Americans may be tempted to be trigger happy with their overwhelming naval forces and fire power.
China should send a message to Obama that all the DF21s and DF26s anti ship and anti aircraft carrier missiles are on alert and will welcome the American warships with open arms. This would be a polite way to tell the Americans that China has a very cheap way to play with their warships, sailors and airmen. The batteries of China’s anti ship missiles are dotting the coast of China and would be sent to shower the American warships with Christmas lightings by the push of a few buttons. Quite easily and cheaply done.
The Americans may want to test the effectiveness and destructive nature of these anti ship missiles to prove they are right, that they are superior in the high seas with two aircraft carrier fleets at their disposal. The ball is in the American court and the Japanese would be the happy bystander, killing two birds with one stone.
