THE SECOND ABDICATION OF THE EMPEROR OF JAPAN - AUGUST 8, 2016 - A MASTER STROKE FROM JAPAN'S OLDEST RULING FAMILY
Compared to the Emperor, Abe is like an amateur at the game of Go. The Emperor resigned in 1945 when he saw the endgame would be the utter and complete destruction of Japan, and the decimation of its people (like the capturing of all the remaining stones on the board). The game has not changed even after many stones have since been placed to give Japan a new life and space to exist in, on condition it does not resume the game officially. Abe thinks this time Japan can win, which would require it to destroy China, which plans it most likely is privy to. His audacity proves they exist. The current Emperor knows the game has not changed. The players may have changed. With China on the other side of the board, the outcome averted in 1945 would only return with more stones to be lost, more spaces to be taken over, and in a crowded board, at a faster rate than ever before.
Like a true Go master, Akihito simply reinstated the Imperial Rescript of his father, Emperor Hirohito, that Japan will never again go to war against any country, lured by any ambition, deceived by any reward, or pressured by any means.
Abe has no choice but to show his countrymen that he is not a true loyalist to the emperor but a foreign puppet in Japanese disguise, and will proceed with abrogating the Pacifist Constitution. Like the militarists of Showa, he prefers to use the emperor's authority to expand his own powers. But given a choice between his powers and the emperor's authority, his own power will always be chosen.
As proven by history, the Emperor himself had to risk his life to announce his abdication and the surrender of Japan on August 15, 1945. Called the Kyujo incident, the attempted coup d'etat led by Major Kenji Hatanaka took place from 9:30 PM of August 14, 1945 up to 11:00 AM of August 15, 1945, that resulted in the cold-blooded murder of Lt. General Takeshi Mori, commander of the 1st Imperial Guards Division, and his brother-in-law, Lt. Colonel Michinori Shiriashi, and attempted assassinations of Prime Minister Suzuki and ex-PM Hiranuma. The 61st anniversary of the failed Kyujo Jiken coup d'etat and the announcement of Japan's surrender by Emperor Hirohito is coming up tomorrow, on August 15, 2016.
Wikipedia had this to say: "The Kyūjō incident (宮城事件 Kyūjō Jiken?) was an attempted military coup d'état in Japan at the end of the Second World War. It happened on the night of 14–15 August 1945, just before the announcement of Japan's surrender to the Allies. The coup was attempted by the Staff Office of the Ministry of War of Japan and many from the Imperial Guard of Japan to stop the move to surrender. The officers killed Lieutenant General Takeshi Mori of the First Imperial Guards Division and attempted to counterfeit an order to the effect of occupying the Tokyo Imperial Palace (Kyūjō). They attempted to place the Emperor under house arrest, using the 2nd Brigade Imperial Guard Infantry. They failed to persuade the Eastern District Army and the high command of the Imperial Japanese Army to move forward with the action. Due to their failure to convince the remaining army to oust the Imperial House of Japan, they ultimately committed suicide. As a result, the communiqué of the intent for a Japanese surrender continued as planned."
