KCNA Commentary Slams Abe's Visit to Yasukuni Shrine

Pyongyang, September 30 (KCNA) -- Japanese reactionaries are getting desperate in militarization.

Abe, who resigned his office as prime minister for illness, suddenly visited the Yasukuni Shrine, the symbol of militarism, less than a week after his resignation.

Not content with it, he twittered "Today I visited the Yasukuni Shrine and reported to the souls on my resignation."

This, a manifestation of recklessness inciting Japan to reinvasion, brings to light the true colors of a militaristic maniac again.

Abe, who inherited a "gene" for revival of fascism from his ancestors, worked hard to realize it and employed sleight of hand to cover up that black-hearted intention during his tenure of office.

In December, 2013, a year after his inauguration as prime minister, he came under sharp criticism at home and abroad for visiting the Yasukuni Shrine. However, he persisted in inciting ultra-nationalism throughout the Japanese society by employing such a sly method as making ritual offering to the shrine, instead of personally visiting it.

His regime billed its desperate pursuance of constitutional revision, unprecedented armed buildup and overseas expansion as "measures for protecting allies and tackling threat from neighboring countries" and "contribution to international community" and "proactive pacifism."

But as a leopard cannot change its spots, Abe revealed his true colors as an ultra-rightist and his policy of aggression under the eyes of the world by visiting the shrine.

Abe was well aware that he would face protests and denunciation by the international community for his visit to the shrine. But he visited it out of his sinister intention to facilitate the constitutional revision he failed to do during his tenure of office.

Now the public in Japan are getting vocal, censuring the former prime minister who caused social unrest by pursuing unpopular and aggressive policies like buildup of "defense capabilities."

Voices objecting to possession of the "capability for attacking enemy base" are heard even within the New Komeito Party, the partner of the Liberal Democratic Party in managing the coalition government.

Exasperated by this, Abe seeks to keep Japan on the track of militarism through his visit to the shrine.

Former soldiers of the Imperial Japanese Army confessed at a press interview that they suffered ruin for inflicting untold misfortune upon the Asian people.

This is a serious lesson teaching that aggressors have no future.

The Japanese reactionaries will meet miserable and irretrievable ruin for persisting in reviving militarism, oblivious of the lesson. -0-
