As the PM of Japan in 2006, Shinzo Abe had denied that comfort women
was not a crime...and he visited Yasukuni Shrine to honour war
Is he any better now ?
He is still a backward looking leader...with deluded view of
history... an unfortunate choice of a leader for Japan Today.
However. like most Japanese, he suffered from an inferiority complex
when dealing with Americans... His instinct is that Asians are
inferior to the Westerners... a colonial slave mentality...a very weak
Asian leader ...very unfortunate.
In comparison, the new female President of South Korea is a much
better Asian leader.
Relationship with China, under this new PM of Japan...is unlikely to
Improve or not, Japan today doesn't have the military might of the
past. He can only talk with hollow words.
It is not his hollow words that the Japanese people found
objectionable....which will lead to his being thrown out of
office. It is his actions...against the interest of Japan.
Japanese want cordial relationship with China so that
Japan can prosper with growing trade with China.
The Diaoyutai Islands was not a contentious issue
between Japan and China for the past 40 years ...since
Deng Xiao Ping and the PM of Japan agreed to freeze
the claims by both sides..."until it could be resolved
by wiser leaders from Japan and China."
Why the Diaoyutai island has become such a hot
issue which could lead to war between Japan and
China ? What has changed ?
The USA !
Since Obama declared the US Pacific Century in
the Pacific, and moved its naval power to the
Pacific, Japan has suddenly decided to revive the
claim on the Dioayutai... in line with US agenda
to contain the rise.of China.
As a result, the economy of Japan suffer another
recession...leading to hardship to the Japanese
people and hundreds of Japanese corporations.
Reviving the claims on Diaoyutai and making China
angry are moves... is definitely not in the interest of
the Japanese people...or Japan.
It serve only the interests of the USA.
The Japanese is angry with the USA and angry
with the ex PM of Japan. They fired their PM and
Abe will suffer the same fate...if he choose to
continue with pouring oil into the Diaoyutai issue.
Against his best interest, S Abe will be forced to
toe the line drawn by the US policy in the Pacific...
to pick fights with China...to continue confrontation
with China on behalf of the USA....on Diaoyutai and other
This is the plight of being the PM of a puppet state
of the USA.
