Japan wrecks peace as it rushes toward reinvasion

Japan is putting spurs to its transformation into a war state.

Prime Minister Kishida recently revealed his intent to specify the possession of "ability to attack enemy bases" in the "state security strategy". In a press conference following the emergence of the new Cabinet he openly disclosed his ambition again to revise the present Constitution and the "state security strategy".

The Defense Ministry also held a “meeting for boosting defense capability" to discuss the possession of the "ability to attack enemy bases".

These can never be tolerated as they are extremely dangerous moves aimed at securing legal justifications for making preparations for a war of continental invasion and at securing the ability for a preemptive attack beyond "exclusive defence".

Because of its aggression crimes in the past, Japan is obliged to stop all acts violating the principle of "exclusive defence" in the light of international and national laws.

However, Japan, harboring the grudge for its defeat in the war, has gone desperate to free itself from the restraints of the current Constitution and the international treaty that deny its right to belligerency and the right to take part in a war and specify its non-possession of combat capability.

Japan fabricated a "security-related law" with the shameful alteration in the interpretation of the Constitution, thus enabling the exercise of the "right to collective self-defense". It also built up public opinion about the possession of "ability to attack enemy bases" under absurd logic that the possession falls under the scope of conditional self-defense. Now it even tries to include this in the "state security strategy".

Through the fabrication of all sorts of war laws and regulations, it rendered Constitution Article 9 virtually defunct and expanded the "Self-Defense Forces" into world-level armed forces through ceaseless arms buildup in breach of the principle of "exclusive defense". If this country possesses even the capability of preemptive attack known as the "ability to attack enemy bases", it means it has changed into a war state, and rounded off the preparations for reinvasion which it has pushed forward century after century.

Japan is a principal wrecker of peace which makes headlong rush towards reinvasion, bereft of discretion.

The primary object of reinvasion sought by militarist Japan is none other than the Northeast Asian region including the DPRK.

Before his assumption of office, incumbent Prime Minister Kishida said in April that "in case the emergency that may come due to the escalated conflict between China and Taiwan puts Japan's existence in danger, it would be natural to counter it while observing the security-related law", fully revealing the attempt to use the escalated tension in the surrounding areas as a pretext for launching the continental war of aggression.

There is no guarantee that Japan won't repeat its blood-stained past history as it categorically shuns the apology and reparation for its past, while eulogizing the past war of massacre as a "liberation war" and colonial fascist rule as "contribution to modernization".

The international community must be vigilant against Japan's militarist moves towards becoming a military power that threaten the future of mankind.
