Recently, Japan’s behavior has become more and more out of line. After receiving the US president, Japan has made further advances to the West:
Kishida is striving to become the first Japanese government head to attend the NATO summit;
The “cloud” helicopter aircraft carrier was sent to hold the 2022 “Pacific Rim” military exercise with the United States, Australia and other countries.
It has also repeatedly touched the red line of surrounding countries:
Japanese politicians openly claim that Japan was “invaded” in World War II, distorting history.
What do you think of Japan, which has created friction with countries within the region and is getting closer and closer to countries outside the region and “elbows outward”?
If we combine the following picture, we may be able to see some clues.
This is a graph of the number of years a Japanese Prime Minister has been in office. Red represents a relatively stable ruling cycle, while blue represents a cycle of frequent Prime Minister changes.
It can be seen from the figure that after one prime minister has been in power for a long time, the next few terms will always fall into the “walking horse lamp” of one-year tour, which is the “Curse” of Japanese politics.
According to this law, the current Japanese Prime Minister, Fumio Kishida, is likely to become a “blue breakpoint” on the map.
Fumio Kishida wants to break the historical destiny. He pushed Japan forward on the extreme road.
For a long time, Japan has advocated “breaking away from Asia and entering Europe”. On the surface, it seems that Japan “disdains” being an Asian country, but in fact, “breaking away from Asia and entering Europe” has been providing ideological and psychological basis for Japan to invade neighboring countries and disrupt regional order:
What does it have to do with me if there is no identity and there is war in the region?
This is a map of alliances established by the United States. It can be clearly seen that Japan has never been so prominent among non English speaking countries in the United States’ alliance system.
Japan is moving from “leaving Asia” to “betraying Asia”.
It took only more than half a year for Fumio Kishida to become prime minister of Japan. However, he has a lot of actions and is working hard to pave the way for “betrayal”.
The first fire of the new official’s appointment was on the red line. He wanted to promote Japan’s constitutional amendment.
Constitutional amendment is almost a “required course” for ambitious Japanese politicians.
I compared the proposed amendment with the current Japanese Constitution, and the addition and modification of Article 9 deserve special attention:
The revised constitution should explicitly include the content about the self defense forces in Article 9, which is equivalent to providing a legal basis for the deregulation of Japanese militarism.
In strict contrast to these Provisions, the existence of the Japanese self defense force was originally unconstitutional. However, in order to retain a military force and interpret the Constitution in disguise, Japanese politicians have found a loophole – self-defense. According to them, self-defense is fundamentally different from the settlement of international disputes.
Today, Japan is ready to take another step and give the self defense forces the status directly recognized by the constitution. This is undoubtedly Japan’s overt “betrayal” of its history of aggression against Asian countries.
? May 3 this year marks the 75th anniversary of the promulgation of the Japanese Constitution. On this day, a large number of people protested against politicians’ advocacy of constitutional amendment
It is no wonder that Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong would advise Japan:
Japan should consider how to deal with historical issues and actively participate in regional peaceful development.
Kishida’s second fire is to follow and use the rules and tools of American values.
As soon as Kishida took office, he created two new posts, one as assistant to the prime minister on “human rights issues” and the other as Minister of economic security.
Let’s start with the prime minister’s assistant officer, Nakatani won.
? during his tenure as Japanese defense minister, Nakatani held many meetings with the US Secretary of Defense
He also has another status as president of the “cross party human rights diplomacy alliance”. The alliance has been promoting the formulation of the Japanese version of the “magnitsky law”.
I believe many people are familiar with this law. It gives the US government the so-called right to exercise “long arm jurisdiction” over other countries under the guise of “human rights”.
Look at countries with similar laws:
According to Japanese media reports, Fumio Kishida once attended primary school in the United States. It seems that Fumio Kishida has really learned a good thing about the United States. He has also learned something that obviously has an Anglo Saxon style of interfering with other countries on the grounds of “human rights”.
Another newly created official position, Minister of economic security, was held by Kobayashi. He is responsible for “supply chain security” and “preventing technology outflow”.
The “Pan security” of economy is the same as that of the West.
? in the second month after his election, Fumio Kishida (middle) and Yingzhi Kobayashi (left) jointly set up the “economic security legal preparation room”
In terms of these arrangements, Kishida wants to move the notorious set of “tools” in the west to Japan and has the potential to “wave” around the region.
You should know that East Asia, with China, Japan and the ROK as the core, has grown into one of the three major economic centers in the world, comparable to North America and the European Union. East Asian countries are deeply integrated in the industrial chain and supply chain, and Japan’s “Pan security” economic policy will undoubtedly hinder the process of regional economic integration.
You know, Asia is still a “growing” continent. Now, the growth rate will undoubtedly be slowed down by Japan.
But Japan doesn’t care. These two fires are like “casting names”. The clear intention of “betraying” Asia is for a country to see, and the third fire can be ignited only after the country’s response.
Japan can’t wait to start fanning.
In the past few days, Japan and the United States have gathered together for military exercises, at least once a month.
In April this year, the Japanese self defense force entered a new fiscal year. In the first week, Japan’s integrated staff supervision department was eager to announce the large-scale joint military exercise plan for this fiscal year.
In the coming year, Japan will hold 12 large-scale joint military exercises, including:
6 joint military exercises of the self defense forces;
3 US Japan joint military exercises;
Three multinational joint military exercises.
In terms of quantity, according to the Japanese self defense force, this is a “nearly saturated” workload.
The scope of Japan’s self defense forces cruising in Asia is becoming larger and larger, which has long gone beyond the scope of “self-defense”. Accompanied by US troops, they swaggered around the gates of many countries, apparently not to maintain regional peace and stability.
Japan wants to send a signal to “betray” Asia. We not only have the will, but also have the strength.
Soon, the third fire was burning.
One of the stops of the US president’s Asian tour was in Japan.
? during Biden’s visit to Japan, a large number of people in Tokyo held anti American demonstrations
From Biden’s itinerary in Japan, we can see that Japan’s “investment certificate” has been handed in place:
There are not only bilateral activities between the United States and Japan, but also two multilateral activities in Japan. Of which,
Used to start the “yintaijing”
Economic framework “- discussing economic issues;
The first was the summit of the “Quartet security dialogue” mechanism between the United States, Japan, India and Australia – to discuss security issues.
At the subsequent press conference, Kishida said that “to ensure peace and prosperity in the Indo Pacific region, Japan and the United States need to play a leading role”.
Huangdahui, deputy dean of the school of international relations of Renmin University of China, told me:
“In Japan’s view, this means Japan
It not only cooperates with the United States, but also plays a leading role here.
Kishida wants to show his leadership in the economic and security fields. “
Kishida’s “borrowing the stage to play” is very obvious. It seems that he is telling the domestic people and countries in the Asia Pacific region that Japan has an unusual influence in the Asia Pacific region.
Behind his painstaking efforts, Kishida has a clear purpose.
On the first day after Biden’s visit to Japan, Asahi Shimbun made such an assessment that Fumio Kishida had completed his “biggest diplomatic event since taking office”.
However, the prime minister wants to show off his achievements to pass the Senate election this summer.
This is because the Japanese know very well that the starting point of all Kishida’s actions now is elections.
After all, the periodic chart of historical destiny hangs above his head.
Whether it will fall into the historical fate of a one-year tour depends on the Senate election in July. Generally speaking, in this election, many voters will vote against it for the purpose of “beating the ruling party”.
Mr Kishida knows very well that if his Liberal Democratic Party is defeated at that time, he cannot escape the blame and can only resign.
On the contrary, since half of the members of the Senate are re elected every three years, and the term of office of the members of the house of Representatives is four years, once he successfully leads the LDP through the customs, he can lead this cabinet to long-term stability, and he will become the first person to break the curse.
But there are still hidden worries in front of Kishida.
Generally speaking, voters care about the indicators that are closely related to their lives and have the greatest impact on themselves.
Under the spillover effect of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, Japan, like the United States, has been disturbed by the global supply crisis of energy, food and raw materials. Recently, Japan’s inflation rate exceeded 2% for the first time in more than seven years.
? after the escalation of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, the Japanese yen experienced a “Cliff Jumping” depreciation
In this regard, Kishida’s idea is to divert his attention and avoid weaknesses – you know, he is the second longest serving foreign minister in Japan after the war.
So he worked hard to get the United States to “carry a sedan chair” for himself and sang a “leading role” in the Asia Pacific region. What voters like is the image of Japan taking the initiative.
Ironically, this routine was originally designed by the United States to use Japan. Unexpectedly, it was used by Japan.
Shortly after the end of World War II, the United States carried out a “democratization reform” on Japan. On the surface, Japan has successively established threeorfour political parties, which is in line with the American style of “democracy”.
However, it can be seen from the inside that the United States has not only retained the Mikado system, but also failed to completely liquidate the remnants of militarist forces, and even fostered conservative forces inextricably linked with militarism to come to power.
A Class-A war criminal suspect in World War II was once the Prime Minister of Japan. His name is kishisuke.
It was the United States that decided to release him. Under the manipulation of the United States, Japan failed to seriously and thoroughly reflect on history, and was coerced into the new strategy of the United States.
During his later tenure as Prime Minister of Japan, kishisuke reached an important political achievement, the new Japan US security treaty.
? kishinsuke (left) signed the revised Japan US security treaty under the gaze of Eisenhower (right)
Compared with the old Japan US security treaty signed after the war, the new provisions clearly stipulate that the United States has the “obligation to defend Japan” – Japan and the United States have formed a military alliance, and the United States has found a strategic fulcrum in East Asia.
However, kishisuke also has his own ideas. He proposed to increase Japan’s own dominance in the Japan US security system.
This is because it was the obsession of the “kishinae” to free Japan from the shackles of post-war international rules. At that time, there was only one way to rely on the power of the United States and slowly infuse Japan’s “autonomy”.
Since then, the right turn has naturally been promoted with the tacit consent of the United States – the United States wants to retain unstable factors in the Asia Pacific region as a fulcrum to check and balance other countries. This is what the United States calls “democratization”.
This purpose is often at the expense of harming and sacrificing security and stability in the region. The signal of Japan’s “betrayal” of Asia deserves the vigilance of Asian countries.
When we see through the plot of Japanese politicians and the destiny of the political arena, we will only make Japan’s “tricks” nowhere to hide. Japan’s every move will only enable Asian countries to better unite and respond. After all, historical memory can never be erased.
Seeking great power status will only be a dream in the end, and Japanese politicians who try to change their destiny are just “clowns” in history!
