According to the Japan Broadcasting Association (NHK) reported on the 8th, former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was shot in the chest during his speech in Nara on the same day, and the suspect has been under control.
According to Kyodo news agency, insiders said Shinzo Abe was shot in the back and hit in the left chest. At present, he has been sent away by ambulance. Nara City Police Department said at the press conference just now that it had identified the shooting suspect as the original Huo weitaro, a junior officer of the former Japanese self defense force. He took advantage of his position to obtain weapons and hit former Prime Minister Abe with a pistol in the crowd at 11 a.m. Japanese time on the 8th.
Today, let’s talk: some people are in a hurry.
Assassination, in fact, is not a rare political means. For example, Wang Jingwei was first famous in history from an assassination.
On March 31, 1910, Wang Jingwei and the comrades of the League Association were arrested after the assassination of Regent Wang zaifeng. The court of the Qing Dynasty sentenced Wang Jingwei to “be executed immediately for his gross misconduct”. Wang Jingwei wrote in prison:
Generous song Yan City, calmly as a prisoner of Chu.
Lead the knife into a fast, not to lose the young man’s head.
Keep your heart and soul, and your broken body will be robbed.
The blue phosphor never goes out, and it shines on Yantai every night.
Show his determination to revolution. This poem was later widely spread in society, and Wang Jingwei became famous for a while. If it weren’t for Wang Jingwei’s treason and becoming the biggest traitor behind him, I think this is also a story of a young hero.

Later, the development of guodang is the history of assassination. The long list of assassins is no longer listed here
However, “if you start with this, you will die with this”. In the months after Sun Yat Sen’s death, the differences within the party have not only manifested themselves in ideological struggle, but also intensified to the point of eliminating the body and building a new mountain.
In August 1925, when the national government was only established for about a month, Liao Zhongkai was openly assassinated by gangsters. There are different opinions about the murderer behind the assassination.
Liao Zhongkai was then an executive member of the Central Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang, a member of the national government, a member of the Military Commission, and a general party representative of the Whampoa Military Academy and Minister of the Ministry of farmers. His death opened the way for Chiang to assume sole military power.
In the middle of the guodang period, Dai Li was trusted by Chiang Kai Shek, so he worked as an agent and spy for a long time, and served as the director of the Sino US Institute of special technology cooperation.
In 1933, Bai Shiwei was sent to assassinate Zhang Jingyao, a traitor of the northern warlord, in May, and Zhao Lijun was sent to assassinate Yang Xingfo, vice chairman of the China Civil Rights Protection Alliance in June. In 1936, Zheng Jiemin was sent to arrange the assassination of Chen Jitang in March, but the assassination team was caught after Chen Jitang’s spy found it. In June, he instigated the collapse of the Guangdong and Guangxi incident, and in October, he sent an assassin to assassinate Wang yaqiao in Wuzhou, Guangxi. In January, 1938, he designed to trap and kill hanfuyu, chairman of Shandong Province.

Even after the Kuomintang defeated the island, it did not stop the pace of assassination.
In 1954, Indonesia and other five countries decided to hold a meeting in Bandung, known as the summer resort in Indonesia, from April 18 to 24 to discuss the self-interests of Asian and African countries and international community issues. Premier Zhou decided to go to discuss.
Taiwan’s Kuomintang spy closely watched the Chinese delegation’s chartered plane “Kashmir Princess” and formulated a plan to assassinate Premier Zhou. With the help of the CIA, the Kuomintang secret service prepared four small and powerful time bombs to carry out the assassination plan.
However, the Kuomintang spy did not know that the Chinese delegation soldiers temporarily divided into two routes, one from Hong Kong by plane to Jakarta first, while Premier Zhou went to Myanmar first, and then took the plane to Jakarta a few days later.
At noon on April 11, the Chinese delegation boarded the Kashmir princess. The “Kashmir Princess” plane exploded and crashed over Kalimantan island. Except for three crew members, all 11 members of the Chinese delegation were killed, including three military reporters. Premier Zhou escaped because of the change of schedule.
Unlike the popular assassination of the Kuomintang, the Communist Party of China has always been very taboo about “Assassination”. One month after the April 12 incident, Zhou Enlai, who escaped from Shanghai, arrived in Wuhan, where the central government was then located. In order to protect the security of the central government, he learned a lesson and established the “secret service section” (later known as the central special section). For many years, terrorist attacks such as assassination have never been allowed when engaging in covert front struggles.
Because according to the principles of Marxism Leninism, the goal of the revolutionary struggle is to overthrow the entire reactionary rule rather than destroy individuals. Assassinating the enemy leader will not only fail to achieve the goal of the struggle, but will cause social disgust and affect the direction of the struggle. Although central teke eliminated a small number of traitors, it was limited to the special cases of selling secrets to the enemy and immediately causing organizational damage.
The reason for not assassinating lies in that the purpose that assassination means can achieve is not broad, but the “cost” is very high; Moreover, because it has obvious “terror” characteristics, taking it as a “habitual” way of struggle is not conducive to the positive cognition of the majority of the United.
However, for some countries, in history, including today, they have never been afraid to use assassination to achieve political goals
In 1997, a 705 page file stored in the CIA intelligence management committee was declassified.
This file records the Diablo activities planned by the CIA since 1959, involving multinational leaders and sensitive people. From this document, which has not been completely declassified, we can see that the CIA directly participated in the planning and implementation, and recorded in black and white, the number of assassinations against Castro reached 638.

In the past 30 years, we have rarely heard of the assassination of political figures. Because it is not cost-effective to assassinate politicians through layers of closely protected security., Instead, it is often the “soft power” claimed by some countries, including but not limited to public opinion offensive, supporting opposition elections, color revolution and a series of ways.
The reason behind this is that in the past 30 years, with the disintegration of the Soviet Union, the invincible combination of “US dollar + US military” and the pervasive media hegemony, some countries can completely “easily” lead the political direction of another country. Since we can do things with “dignity”, we don’t want to be so “disgraceful”.
In recent months, with the further out of control of the international situation, whether it is the collapse of Afghanistan or the deviation of global capital, and with the gradual failure of the “dollar + U.S. military” tool, the internal and external political situation faced by some countries has become more embarrassing.
As a widely circulated passage today asks:
At present, Russia is at war, the Japanese Prime Minister is assassinated, the British Prime Minister is out of office, and the new German prime minister is actively organizing military expansion. What year is this?
Answer: 1913 or 2022
In today’s world, just like the world a hundred years ago, for a declining Empire, when it lacks time and space to do many deep-seated political exchanges, many things that could be done decently in the past have become a little “disgraceful”.
In the past few months, some countries have been hoping that East Asia can replicate the situation of Ukraine, by detonating geopolitical conflicts and causing capital panic, to drive back capital and alleviate their internal contradictions. So whether it’s the Asian version of NATO or a visit to an island, they all hope to make a fire here by “paying lip service but not paying attention to it”
However, most East Asian politicians, especially those who came from political families, are well versed in the art of “prudence”, cooperate with various forces in the rear to close vertically and horizontally, constantly “stretch” in the future, and try their best to avoid their country becoming a “cost”
And when some countries and these politicians repeatedly “ineffective communication” and lack “strategic time”, the original less “glorious” and less “decent” means have to be put on the stage again to stir up the world
However, behind these means that can not be “on the table”, it can only explain:
Some people are in a hurry!!!
As of the end of this article, it is reported that Shinzo Abe was still conscious when he got into the ambulance. At present, Shinzo Abe has no vital signs… I don’t know whether he can withstand it.
“If you are not sleepy, you need to worry early, and if you are not poor, you need to worry early.” With the change of the main social contradictions in China and the profound adjustment of the international balance of power, the internal and external risks faced by China’s development have risen unprecedentedly. We must enhance our awareness of hardship, adhere to the bottom line thinking, and be ready to deal with more complex and difficult situations at any time. ??
