Resurgence of Fascism and Remilitarization in Japan

Another Abeshit Day in Japan’s Ignominious History

Despite its pacifist Constitution, Japan’s controversial “security laws” took effect today, enabling its troops to fight overseas for the first time since the nation’s total and utter defeat in World War II.

Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution outlaws war as a means to settle international disputes involving the state.

In the Constitution, which came into effect on May 3, 1947, following Japan’s defeat in World War II, the state formally renounces the sovereign right of belligerency and aims at an international peace based on justice and order.

The Article 9 also forbids Japan from maintaining an army, navy or air force. Therefore, the Self Defense Forces are supposed to be extensions of the national police force.

The full text of Article 9 in Japanese is

“ 第九条  日本国民は、正義と秩序を基調とする国際平和を誠実に希求し、国権の発動たる戦争と、武力による威嚇又は武力の行使は、国際紛争を解決する手段としては、永久にこれを放棄する。

二  前項の目的を達するため、陸海空軍その他の戦力は、これを保持しない。国の交戦権は、これを認めない。”

The official English translation of the article is

“ ARTICLE 9. (1) Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes.
(2) In order to accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized. ”

In July 2015, however, Abe’s Cabinet decided to unilaterally reinterpret the clause. The new legislation allows Japan to use force by exercising its right to “collective self-defense.”

“It makes a mockery of constitutional constraints on government power if governments can, through executive decree, reinterpret those constraints away. To permit such a reinterpretation of Article 9 would throw into question the integrity and meaning of all other provisions of the Constitution, and thus undermine the normative power of the entire Constitution,” said Craig Martin is an associate professor at the Washburn University School of Law.

“And of course this particular reinterpretation would gut one of the three pillars of Japan’s constitutional order. In short, it poses a serious risk to the rule of law and principles of democracy in Japan.”

“Prime Minister Abe changed the interpretation of the Constitution by force. Is it OK to change the Constitution’s pacifism so easily?” said Katsuya Okada, head of the main opposition Democratic Party, on Monday.

“We have to stop the ‘reckless driving’ of the Abe administration. This is the last chance to realize the politics in which it is possible to change ruling parties,” Okada said.

Japanese Govt Increasingly Intimidating the Journalists

Posted by feww on March 26, 2016

“In Japan today, rather than the media watching the authorities, the government watches the media”—senior journalist

“Five of Japan’s most respected journalists have accused Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s government of pressuring broadcasters to reduce criticism of its policies,” said a report.

In a press conference, held at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan earlier this week, they denounced PM Shinzo Abe’s government for its recent clampdown on press freedom after a minister threatened to revoke their licenses for “biased coverage.”

The Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications Sanae Takaichi had warned the broadcasters last month that their licenses would be revoked if they failed to be “impartial” in political coverage.

“In Japan today, rather than the media watching the authorities, the government watches the media,” said Shuntaro Torigoe, a former news anchor on Japanese TV Asahi, adding that the Abe government “is most nervously checking what the media say, because what’s said on television affects his support ratings.”

“It sounds as if the government can suspend the activities of broadcasters or remove newscasters just because they criticized the government,” said Soichiro Okuno, an MP for the Democratic Party of Japan.

“Of all ruling Liberal Democratic Party governments, the Abe administration is most nervously checking what the media say, because what’s said on television affects his support ratings,” Shuntaro Torigoe, a former Mainichi newspaper journalist and news anchor on TV Asahi, said. “In Japan today, rather than the media watching the authorities, the government watches the media.”

The journalists also criticize the MSM for not fighting hard enough for press freedom.

“It’s not so much about political pressure, it’s about deterioration in the media,” said Soichiro Tahara, one of Japan’s most respected journalists, who is known for asking politicians tough questions. “To me, the most serious problem is self-restraint by higher-ups at broadcast stations.”

Reuters News Police Removes Comment on Japan’s Corrupt Politics

A comment concerning the corrupt state of politics in Japan, posted at reuters.com by one of our readers, was disallowed/ removed by Reuters news police.

The reader contended, and we’ve confirmed, that the comment contained original quotes from a book written by a prominent Japanese businessman, humanitarian and author, Toshihiko Abe, who was a former Director of European and American Operations at Casio Ltd.

The book, titled “Japan’s Hidden Face: A Call for Radical Change In Japanese Society & Commerce,” published by BainBridge Books, Philadelphia, is available in the United States  and Japan.

Freedom of press in Japan (!)

“Japanese govt forced Mainichi to remove thousands of articles. My blog had links to about 20,000 reports of rape and other acts of sexual violence perpetrated against woman by Japanese police officers, teachers and other civil servants over a period of four years.”

Japan’s Wet Dreams of Re-Militarization Lead to GDP Collapse

None has harmed Japan more than its outgoing ‘American’ PM, Shinzo Abe (with the exception of the dead emperor)

 To pay for re-militarization and a major armament campaign Japan’s ‘American’ PM, Shinzo Abe, raised the consumption tax from 5 to 8 percent in April.

Abe’s handlers have instructed him to buy even more arms next year, thus he plans an additional tax hike of 2 percent in October 2015.

“Gross domestic product plunged 6.8% on an annualized basis in the second quarter this year, the biggest fall since the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami,” said a report.

The average consumer simply couldn’t afford to the additional 3% tax hike.

In reality, most food items have seen a price hike of 8% since April. The greedy Japanese supermarkets have added 8% to the price of their goods, instead of the actual tax rise of 3%,  pocketing the difference in the confusion. They don’t consider the average Japanese consumer smart enough to know the difference.

Japan GDP Collapse -WSJ

Wages dropped 1.8% while the sales tax rose 3% leading to a 5.2% QoQ collapse—the highest on record—in Consumer Spending during the second quarter, thanks to Abenomics.

Abe Makes a Mockery of The Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution

The Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution (日本国憲法第9条 Nihonkokukenpō dai 9-jō?) is a clause in the National Constitution of Japan that prohibits an act of war by the state. The Constitution came into effect on May 3, 1947, immediately following World War II. In its text, the state formally renounces war as a sovereign right and bans settlement of international disputes through the use of force. The article also states that, to accomplish these aims, armed forces with war potential will not be maintained, although Japan maintains de facto armed forces, referred to as the Japan Self-Defense Forces.

Japan to Spend $232.4 Billion on Weapons

Posted by feww on December 17, 2013

Japan to pay a heavy price for hubris

Abe’s “kamikazenomics” sees a massive increase on arms spending

Japan’s cabinet has approved a new national security strategy and increased military [“defense”] spending, directly targeting  China.

“China’s stance toward other countries and military moves, coupled with a lack of transparency regarding its military and national security policies, represent a concern to Japan and the wider international community and require close watch,” said the national security draft.

Abe’s government will budget 23.97 trillion yen [$232.4 billion] over the next five years to buy weapons, up from 23.37 trillion yen during the previous five years.

Many Japanese believe that Mr Abe is using the threat from China as an excuse to pursue his own nationalist aspirations.

The Village Idiot’s Shopping List

  • 5 x  Submarines
  • 2 x Anti-missile destroyers
  • 28 x F-35 fighter planes
  • 17 x Boeing  Osprey aircraft (VTO)
  • 52 x Amphibious vehicles
  • 3 x Surveillance drones
  • Sundries

Japan first increased military spending in January 2013, after 10 years of cuts.

Major Beneficiaries

“U.S. contractors would be major beneficiaries of Abe’s increased spending. These include V22 Osprey maker Boeing Co, lead F-35 fighter-jet contractor Lockheed Martin Corp, missile-fabricator Raytheon Corp, and Northrop Grumman Corp, which builds the Global Hawk unarmed drone,” said a report.

Amazing, but True!

How Japan was shafted: Japan’s new defense plan includes cutting the country’s tanks by 400 to 300 over the next 10 years. TANKS? That’s right, tanks! The super-heavy, tracked, armored fighting vehicle that’s designed for front-line combat in conventional warfare.

Japan proudly owns 700 tanks.

Somehow, someone must have convinced the Japanese government that to defend their islands they would need tanks [sic,] and not just any old number, but 700 of them.

Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF)

Currently, JMSDF operates at least 120 large vessels (excluding smaller auxiliary ships) including

  • 16 Attack submarines
  • Four helicopter-carrier destroyers
  • Six large aegis class destroyers
  • Two guided missile destroyers (DDG)
  • 20 Destroyers (DD)
  • 30 Mine countermeasure vessels
  • 18 Destroyers (frigates)
  • Six destroyer escorts (corvettes)
  • Seven patrol vessels
  • Three landing ship tanks
  • 8 Training vessels
  • And a fleet of various auxiliary and support ships

Japan Renews Nuke Ambitions Despite Fukushima, Common Sense

Posted by feww on December 14, 2013

Japan should embrace nuclear power: Government panel

“Nuclear energy is an important and fundamental base energy source that will support the stability of energy demand and supply,” the panel wrote in its report.

The panel is headed by the honorary chairman of Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp, Japan’s largest steel maker and one of its heaviest energy consumers, said a report.

Unsurprisingly, the panel’s recommendations are driven by economic incentives alone and have no base in science or reason in common sense.

If Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe remains in power his government would almost certainly heed the panel’s advice and expand Japan’s reliance on nuclear energy, despite widespread anti-nuclear sentiment after the 2011 Fukushima triple meltdown.

Ironically, the previous government of the Democratic Party of Japan, decided to abandon to abandon nuclear power following a recommendation from a similar panel.

Nuclear reactors in Japan, one of the world’s most seismic prone countries, provided about a third of electricity before the 2011 Fukushima catastrophe.

Prior to the Fukushima incident, the world’s worst nuclear disaster since 1986 Chernobyl meltdown, the government had considered boosting the contribution of nuclear energy to over 50 percent.

Enough said!

CJ Recommendation

The decision by the government to reactivate Japan’s idled reactors would justify any and all future defensive measures taken by nature to neutralize the additional threats, recommends CJ panel.

Japan Disaster PM Declares Izu Oshima Island “Severe Disaster Area”

Posted by feww on October 30, 2013

Once again Japanese authorities stand accused of “criminal negligence” for failing to save lives

Japan’s disaster Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited typhoon-hit volcanic island of Izu Oshima on Sunday and declared the devastation caused by the Typhoon WIPHA as a “disaster of extreme severity.”

Just about everyone and their uncle knew typhoon WIPHA was a very intense storm capable of causing major damage, possibly multiple deaths.

Even Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) had earlier warned about the severity of the typhoon, which failed to make a direct hit, describing it as a “once a decade” type of storm.

The storm triggered deadly mudslides on the island destroying homes and burying residents alive on October 16. At least 32 people were killed and about a dozen were missing, presumed dead.

Once again the authorities in Japan have been accused of “criminal negligence” for failing to issue adequate warnings and evacuation alerts as the deadly storm approached, which would have saved dozens of lives.

FIRE-EARTH Supports China’s Claim to Diaoyu Islands

Posted by feww on October 29, 2013

China’s Claim to Diaoyu Islands 100 percent valid

FIRE-EARTH moderators believe China has historical and therefore legal rights, as well as the moral obligation to reclaim the Diaoyu Islands.

The Diaoyu Islands (Chinese: 钓鱼岛及其附属岛屿, or 钓鱼岛) in Mainland China, also known as the Senkaku Islands (尖閣諸島), or Tiaoyutai Islands (Chinese: 釣魚台列嶼) in Taiwan or the Pinnacle Islands, are a group of uninhabited islands in the East China Sea due east of Mainland China, northeast of Taiwan, west of Okinawa Island, and north of the southwestern tail of the Ryukyu Islands.

Records of the islands date back to early 15th century. The Japanese government annexed the islands on 14 January 1895, naming them Senkaku.

The Potsdam Declaration or the Proclamation Defining Terms for Japanese Surrender

On July 26, 1945 the United States, Britain and China released the Potsdam Declaration announcing the terms for Japan’s surrender, with the warning, “We will not deviate from them. There are no alternatives. We shall brook no delay.” The terms of the declaration specified, among others

  • “Japanese sovereignty shall be limited to the islands of Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, Shikoku and such minor islands as we determine.”
  • “We call upon the government of Japan to proclaim now the unconditional surrender of all Japanese armed forces, and to provide proper and adequate assurances of their good faith in such action. The alternative for Japan is prompt and utter destruction.”

FIRE-EARTH rejects Japan’s manufactured history of the islands.

Japan’s continued illegitimate claims to the island, and the threat of using military force is nothing short of an act of war.
