Perilous Incitement to Revanchism and Wild Ambition for Reinvasion

Every year, the ultra-right conservative politicians of Japan are swarming to Yasukuni Shrine to stage a farce of paying homage in memory of the day of defeat.

Cabinet members starting from the prime minister and even politicians, are brazenly visiting Yasukuni Shrine to pay tribute. This is a rash act of no avail to bring back the militarist specters and also a perilous act of crime against the demand of the international society wishing Japan on a path to genuine peace.

Yasukuni Shrine is the very place which preserves the mortuary tablets of those who died after running wild for conquest of the continent and annihilation of other nations, the A-class war criminals at that who reduced Japan to a super-large criminal state against humanity.

Then why is Japan desperately attempts to bring back the specters of militarism even in defiance of a torrent of protest and denunciation from the international society?

Japan is the only country, as a war criminal state and defeated nation in the WWII, that still evades liquidation of its past crimes.

Should Japan truly intend to bid farewell to its crime-ridden past with sincerity and start anew, there would be no need for it to pay tribute to Yasukuni Shrine.

The ultra-right conservative politicians are devoured entirely by one thing – a wild ambition to achieve its old dream of “Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere” succeeding the will of its ancestors.

It is for this reason that Japan is imbuing new generation with militarist idea, while making desperate efforts to assume an appearance of “war state” and “aggressive state” by making amendments to the “peace constitution” in a bid to “legalize” the right of belligerency and entry into a war and possessing even the “capability to attack enemy base”.

As the Japanese conservative politicians persist in bringing back the specters of militarism in violation of historical truth and justice, they will only fall into the precipice of international isolation and destruction.
