China slams Abe’s Davos implication

Global Times | 2014-1-24 0:48:03
By Zhang Yiwei


China Thursday refuted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's recent appeal for more transparency in China's military budget, stating that it is Japan that should increase transparency and explain its own military buildup.

"China's defense policy is transparent and has been published in its white papers and on other occasions," foreign ministry spokesman Qin Gang on Thursday told a regular press briefing in response to Abe's speech to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, a day earlier.

"We must ... restrain military expansion in Asia, which could otherwise go unchecked," Abe told the annual meeting of global business and political leaders, following his government's custom of not naming China in such references.

In response, Qin urged Japan to explain to Asia and the international community the real purpose of amending its pacifist constitution, which has been in existence since 1947. The Abe government has been trying to revise it so as to greenlight the expansion of Japan's military forces.

In December, Abe's cabinet approved a critical defense policy package comprising new defense program guidelines, a five-year defense buildup plan and the national security strategy. Japan vowed to seek more "proactive" roles for its military forces abroad and to set new guidelines on arms exports, signaling a major shift from its previous restrictive stance.

"Abe tends to depict China as a threat at whatever occasion he attends. His purpose is to worsen Sino-Japan relations and damage China's image in the international community, as well as tear apart economic development in the Asia-Pacific region," Lü Yaodong, a research fellow of Japanese politics at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times.

During the Davos speech, Abe also called for dispute resolution through "dialogue and the rule of law, and not through force and coercion."

Qin said that Japan cannot on one hand refuse to admit mistakes and continue to denigrate China, and on the other hand indulge in empty rhetoric to advocate dialogue, as it is the Japanese leader that is shutting the door to dialogue.

Liu Jiangyong, a vice director of the Institute of Modern International Relations at Tsinghua University, said it is inappropriate for Abe to cast blame for political issues at an economic forum.

"Abe is trying to distract people's attention by claiming it is others' fault," Liu told the Global Times.

Abe also defended his visit to the Yasukuni Shrine, saying that the shrine honors the dead of World War I and the 1868 Meiji war, not just war criminals or others who died in World War II.

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi, who is currently attending the international conference on Syria in Montreux, Switzerland, described Abe's argument as futile, which only serves to expose Abe's erroneous perception of history.

Even today, the Yasukuni Shrine still represents the notion that the aggression of Japan in World War II was "just," the Pacific War Japan launched was "self-defense" and the trial at the Far East International Military Tribunal was "illegitimate," as well as honoring 14 Class-A war criminals, Wang noted.

South Korea Thursday also said that it is a complete contradiction to talk about forging friendly ties while continuing visits to the shrine.

Liu said Abe is unlikely to change his stance even though he sensed the pressure and isolation from the international community.

"His explanation reveals that he doesn't think he's wrong and he would do it again," Liu said.

Tensions between China and Japan have been rising since Tokyo announced in September 2012 the "nationalization" of the Diaoyu Islands in the East China Sea.

Chinese air force planes have been regularly patrolling the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ), which covers the Diaoyu Islands, air force spokesman Shen Jinke said Thursday.

On a recent patrol, multiple Chinese aircraft were sent to "monitor, identify, track and warn" multiple foreign military planes that had entered the ADIZ, established two months ago, Shen added.

JAPAN HAS ALREADY BEGUN ITS PROPAGANDA OFFENSIVE AGAINST CHINA IN PREPARATION FOR A WAR ON CHINA THAT JAPAN IS WILLING TO PLAY THE ROLE OF "VICTIM" FOR, IF CHINA EVER TRIES TO RETAKE DIAOYUDAO FROM JAPAN.

China has to prepare basically for WWIII, especially now that Japan's propaganda offensive is aimed at painting China as the aggressor in a coming world war.  How would Japan know it has to do this propaaganda preparation if it does not also know there will be a world war?  Would it not sound absurd to an internationall community of leaders at Davos for Japan to be talking of a world war, if Japan is not intending to enter into one?  Japan is willing to play high stakes poker with China, using the nuclear chips of its allies.  And the reason Japan is not afraid of losing is because it knows that once the propaganda war is won, China will be attacked before it even lifts a single finger against Japan.  This Propaganda War is thus the immediate prelude to a pre-emptive nuclear attack on China, which will take China by surprise, as Chinese leaders could not imagine anyone would be so reckless as to actually begin a world war without being attacked first by China.  No, Japan, which now leads the Allied command, always attacks first, as in Port Arthur, as in Pearl Harbor, and now AGAIN.  

Even if China tries to avoid war, to abide by UN rules of not attacking first, when dealing with Japan and its minions, CHINA SHOULD EXPECT TO BE ATTACKED FIRST MASSIVELY, CRIPPLINGLY, AND POSSIBLY FATALLY, before it responds, if it can respond at all.

This does not mean China should attack first.  Not at all.  But China should not expect peace to ensue by its holding off on its response to Japanese provocations.  Pearl Harbor was attacked on a Sunday, during its Christmas holiday season.  Nanking was raped over the Christmas of 1937.  Expect Japan to attack first, and massively with all the strategic weapons at its beck and call. to wipe out 90% of China's military capabilities in one strike if at all possible.  This is the logic of Japanese warcraft.  It has not changed, and will never change, because they depend entirely on Sun Zi for guidance, and he taught them deception, surprise, and initiative.

As we all know by now, the Re-Nazification of Japan is virtually complete.  The Nazi Internationale has won the Peace, even if Germany had lost the War, and its people have abandoned Nazism as a plague.  Internationally, in the West and East, especially in Japan, it has succeeded better than all the democracies combined which are now treaty bound to "defend" its offensives in the coming months and years.

China can't cede agenda-setting to Western media



No country would allow its information gate open wide unguarded.

too bad, rats don't know how to be as civilized, courteous, smiles as the the Japnese show their tourists.
