On May 14, 2015, flush from his recent state visit to the US with bipartisan support for Japan to re-militarize and confront China in every sea that surrounds China, Abe said to news reporters . . .

“I want to make clear that Japan will never become entangled in a war being fought by the United States.”

Abe must have belatedly realized China will have to win, regardless . . . and rather than speeding on with Tesla, he has stepped on the brakes, stopping, just in time, at the edge of the precipice.  Or, was Abe being deceptive to the protesters.  For all the so-called "democracy" that modern Japan claims to be, his Cabinet's bill to expand Japan's military activities violates the wishes of 56% of the populace, and also violates the constitution that was created to satisfy Japan's binding treaty obligations to two of the four Allied Powers mentioned in its Instrument of Surrender of September 2, 1945, namely, China and Russia, repudiation of which puts Japan back in the shoes of a war criminal of WWII.

Sorry but you're wrong.

The so-called "Pacifist Constitution" imposed on Japan was the handiwork of MacArthur and has nothing to do with the Instrument of Surrender signed by Japan concluding WWII. Japan then signed the San Francisco Peace Treaty renouncing the use of military force to settle international disputes in San Francisco. Due to the absence of both the Republic of China (Taiwan) and the People's Republic of China (China) in San Francisco, Japan then signed  a separate "Peace Treaty" with the Republic of China in Taiwan which was later abrogated after Japan recognized the People's Republic of China with whom Japan signed another "Peace Treaty".

Those "Peace Treaties" has nothing to do with Article 9 of the MacArthur Constitution which Shinzo Abe wants to get rid of in order to normalize Japan's military relationship with the U.S.A. The reason is that as long as Article 9 exists, Japan has to depend upon the U.S. Military for its national defense which Shinzo Abe's so-called "Nationalists" wants abrogated.

You need to read between the headlines to see what Shinzo Abe's motives are. His target is neither China nor Russia both of which have island disputes with Japan but the U.S. Military.

Wishful thinking, that all Abe wants is to kick Uncle Sam out of Japan.  There is nothing in the cabinet resolution that either mandates this or makes it easier for Japan to do.  You are a Japanese sympathizer, I see.  You have the right to think that way.  It is just so pathetically pro-Japanese, no amount of reality will wake you up until the Japanese katana is on your neck.  Thankfully, most Chinese are not that dumb.

NO POTSDAM, NO JAPAN!

The Pacifist Constitution was crafted by MacArthur in accordance with the Japanese Instrument of Surrender, and is not something independent of that surrender treaty.  I was absolutely right that the Pacifist Constitution was created in order to fulfill the pledge of Japan to never become a military power again.  Read the Instrument of Surrender of 1945, which referenced the Potsdam Proclamation of July 26, 1945, to which Japan explicitly stated it agreed. And the Potsdam Proclamation, now part of the Instrument of Surrender of Japan, states:

"There must be eliminated for all time the authority and influence of those who have deceived and misled the people of Japan into embarking on world conquest, for we insist that a new order of peace, security and justice will be impossible until irresponsible militarism is driven from the world."

The Potsdam Proclamation contrary to sfphoto's personal views is widely regarded by historians as the birth of the Japanese Constitution.  Sfphoto's view is, on the other hand, not only wrong, but also misleading, being written in the tone of someone who pretends to know better the history of the Pacifist Constitution, but is actually a pro-Japanese historical revisionist in disguise.

Silly nonsense.

You should visit the Yūshūkan (遊就館) which is a Japanese war museum located within the Yasukuni Shrine in Chiyoda, Tokyo. There you can see for yourself what the Japanese "nationalists" really think of the U.S. Military's role during WWII.


Don't be fooled by Shinzo Abe's Diayudao gambit, There is not a single soul living in Diayudao but there are 20,000 Russian civilians living in the Kuril Islands which is right next door to Hokkaido, Japan. Shinzo Abe should be more concerned by the Russian threat in the Kuril Islands than by the alleged "China Threat" in Diayudao. But he's not because he is just playing this game which is what the U.S.A. wants. And he's using this occasion to push for the repeal of Article 9 because that was imposed by MacArthur in exchange for the continued occupation of Japan by the U.S. Military, as provided for under the U.S.-Japan Mutual Defense Assistance Agreement of 1954.


Japanese "nationalism" will turn against the continued presence of the U.S. Military in Japan. That happened in the Philippines when the Philippine Senate expelled the U.S. Military in 2002.


Now it's Japan's turn.

If Japan rejects the Peace promised by Potsdam, then it must be willing to pay the Price of its Genocidal War against Chinese and Koreans, demanded by Potsdam, to which it has agreed in its Instrument of Surrender of September 2, 1945, that will be due in its totality, the moment its military forces extend beyond the stipulated borders of Japan, or engages in retaking any of the islands it had acquired by violence and greed, as required by the Potsdam Proclamation of July 26, 1945.
