For its own strategic interest to remain as the top dog in the world of hegemony and empire, the Americans have unwittingly and willingly unleashed the biggest devil of the past and allowing the devil to rearm to the teeth to do damage once more to civilisation and to the Americans one day. China is seen as the number one enemy of the Americans not that China is going to start a war with the Americans, but by virtue of its size, its population, the energy release from an industrious and educated population, organised as a nation, to be able to surpass the Americans in all fields. The rate the Chinese people are climbing the industrial, scientific and technological ladder, at a blinding speed that it is only a matter of days before China would be number one in everything. This is an undeniable and unstoppable fact, without having to go to war. It is just a natural historical development of human civilisation. And this is seen by the Americans as a threat to their world dominance and must be stopped at all costs.
The fear of being number two to China is driving the Americans bonkers. They are doing everything they could, dropping their defensive instinct to protect themselves, by allowing the Japanese to rearm to it former military strength to create another diversion, another area of concern for China. How far would the Americans go to cut the leash on Japan to become another mighty military machine? Have the Americans forgotten what Japan did to the rest of Asia and SE Asia? Have the Americans forgotten Pearl Harbour? Maybe, maybe the Americans think this is history. The Japanese of today, in their businessmen suits, are very nice and respectable gentlemen, very polite people, unlike their barbaric parents. The DNAs have changed.
Have the Americans forgotten about the two atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the carpet bombing of Tokyo and other Japanese cities? Perhaps, when the Americans are not the victims, they could and would forget. Would the Americans forget 911? Never, because the Americans were attacked and were the victims. This same pattern of thoughts would apply to the Japanese. Would the Japanese forget Pearl Harbour? Never, because that was the biggest military victory of the Japanese against the Americans. Nevermind if it was a sneak attack without warning, without declaration of war. The Americans got themselves to be blamed for sleeping on the job.
Would the Japanese forget the bombing of Japan and the two atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Never. They are holding annual rituals to remember the days when Japan were obliterated by the Americans. They are also remembering their murderous soldiers in the Yasukuni Shrine. They are very proud of these soldiers for their conquest of Asia and their sneak attacks against the Americans.But they would forget their atrocities across Asia and South East Asia.
What would these memories mean to the Americans and the Japanese? One day, the debt must be settled. The Americans must pay for the bombing of Tokyo, for dropping two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, for keeping Japan as a semi colony of the American Empire until today. Yes, the Japanese are still bowing politely to the American warlords. But did the Americans see the glint and hatred in their eyes when their heads are bent, starring at their feet?
The Americans and the Japanese have a long history of aggression, rivalry and hate. Pearl Harbour could have its origin when Commodore Perry opened up Japan by force. It could also originate from the American's effort to deny access to natural resources from Japan.
The history and relationship between China and the USA were less acrimonious. There was no invasion and war between the two countries. The only war they fought was on opposite sides in the Korean War. And during the WW2, China was on the side of the Americans, and many Americans fought with the Chinese against the Imperialist Japan. The souring of relationship was political, the Cold War and anti Communism. Such wounds are easily healed as they did not drive too deeply into the psyche of the two people. China would not be harbouring vengeful thoughts of retaliating against an American nuclear bombing of Chinese cities. There were none to talk about. Though there were many occasions when the Americans were flirting with the idea of a preemptive nuclear strike against Chinese nuclear bases in Lop Nor, these did not happen.
China and the USA were political enemies but no unforgiveable and unbearable acts of aggression between the two countries. Now the Americans are choosing to unleash the devil in Japan in their military strategy for world dominance against China. Is this a wise thing to do? Would the Japanese turn against the Americans one day when the Americans were fighting China and deal another more horrendous attack than Pearl Harbour? The Japanese have all the reasons to do so, for their national pride and their militaristic ambition to be another super power.
What Harry Harris had done, by jumping at the slightest opportunity to want to start a war with China in the South China Sea and in the Korean Peninsula are signs of what he and the Japanese have in the back of their minds. The only way for Japan to be the top super power once again is for the destruction of the USA, China and Russia. If Japan could get these three countries to destroy each other, Japan would be number one again by default.
While the Americans are obsessed with the rise of China, let they not forget the bigger devil lurking behind, in bed with them. Harry Harris is a dangerous man. But the more dangerous one is Abe. Would the Americans really want to unleash this devil that has an axe to grind against the Americans? Who is the real enemy against the Americans, China or Japan? By virtue of the relative size, America will be number two to China in a matter to time, no need for war. It is a natural process of human civilisation. For Japan to be number one, it has to see to the destruction of China, Russia and the USA. How could Japan achieve this goal? Are the Americans aiding the Japanese to this end game?
