Obama Gives Abe a Long Enough Rope to Hang the Japanese

The U.S. President, referred to by the moderators as 5-o, who is on a four-nation Asia tour, has reaffirmed his support for Japan in its row with China over Diaoyu Islands [called the Senkaku islands by Abe’s Japan.]

By expressing his support for the right wing, Yasakuni-ite government of Japan, 5-o has stoked the fire of a deep-rooted antagonism between the two Asian rivals, ensuring inevitability of a major conflict, possibly a war, in the region, while at the same time preaching against escalation in the dispute.

[NOTE: Russia’s Foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, has asserted, “the Americans are running the show (in Ukraine) in a very close way.”]

“Article five [of the US-Japan security treaty] covers all territories under Japan’s administration including Senkaku islands,” said Obama. “We do not believe that they should be subject to change unilaterally.”

Meanwhile, Chinese officials have reasserted Japan’s occupation of the islands as “illegal and invalid.”

“No one can shake our determination to safeguard national territorial sovereignty and maritime interests,” said China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman.

Japan occupied the Diaoyu Islands during the Sino-Japanese War in 1895.

No matter who ultimately wins the dispute over the tiny islands, Japanese public are guaranteed to be the losers.
