Abe, the former Japanese Prime Minister, has recently talked about a missile “threat” from the DPRK at a meeting of lawmakers from the Liberal Democratic Party, citing the justice of possession of the “ability for attacking enemy base”.
Such rubbish cannot but be described as the last-ditch effort by a crazy militarist keen on stoking hostility towards the DPRK. This also proves that the ultra-rightists in Japan become more desperate in pursuing their wild ambition for reinvasion.
As has been recognized, Abe, who is possessed of the ultra-rightist reactionary idea as his creed by inheriting the cunning and belligerent nature as a descendant of a war criminal, pursued hostility towards the DPRK as a state policy during his stay in office. He was engrossed in revanchist moves for reinvasion to avenge his ancestors’ defeat.
He also shocked the world public by starting his work at the new government singing aloud “kimigayo”, a song symbolic of militarism, and by terming his singing of the song “the first step for retrieving Japan.”
During his rule, the Japanese regime desperately and openly pursued the retrogressive revision of the constitution aimed at categorically denying the status of a war criminal state and defeated nation. This led to the establishment of legal foundations for overseas invasion with the adoption of “security legislation” and the emergence of the “Self-Defence Forces” as considerably strong war forces.
Besides, the schemes for distorting history totally denying its past crimes were perpetrated more openly than previous governments, anti-DPRK and anti-Chongryon moves reached the extremes and the whole Japanese society was engulfed in the mire of ultra-nationalism and revanchism.
His militaristic madness gets more serious with each passing day.
During his tenure of office, he hesitated to visit the “Yasukuni Shrine” for fear of denunciation by the world public, but three days after his resignation he visited it and again one month later, to praise the top-class war criminals. He also resumed the operation of an organization of conservative lawmakers led by him, in a bid to actively abet the present Suga’s cabinet in revision of the constitution and militarization.
All these facts prove that Abe and other Japanese ultra-rightists still long for the past days when Japan invaded the Asian continent, not getting rid of a daydream for realizing the “Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere.”
It is a revelation of his sinister intention to justify the moves for militarism and overseas expansion that he has made a fuss about the “threats” from the DPRK by clamouring for the justice of possession of “ability for attacking enemy base”.
Not long ago, an article posted on a website said that the Second World War still goes on in Japan and that’s why Asian countries all dislike it.
At present, Japanese media and opposition parties remain averse to such moves, saying “possession of offensive weapons goes beyond the minimum limit of self-defence and will cause tensions like fierce arms race among neighbouring countries to make Japan get embroiled in the ‘abyss of security’.” The majority of the Japanese people strongly urge the Suga cabinet touting the succession of Abe’s politics, not to carry forward the wrong policies.
The risky moves of the ultra-rightist forces of Japan will only throw the island nation into the abyss of total destruction.
A real threat to Japan is just the reckless confrontational moves of the Abe-led ultra-rightist political forces.
