Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe should win the Nobel prize for incompetence in leadership since he daily fouls up when it comes to creating positive feelings among nations in Asia toward his government. Last month, he visited the Yassukini Shrine which is dedicated to those who fought in Japanese armed forces during World War II. You know, the soldiers who killed millions of Chinese people, who enslaved South Korean females and forced them to become prostitutes in service of the Japanese army. Oh, they murdered thousands of American and Filipino prisoners. As of this moment, Abe has been unable to even arrange a meeting with a Chinese leader for over a year, and is not welcomed by leaders of South Korea. Yes, Abe was proving a point, he has the right to honor war criminals. Heck, even Barack Obama is angry at this incompetent leader who has made the word, “Japan,” a reference to bestiality.
He has no plan for the disputed Senkaku islands which are claimed by both China and Japan, with South Korea also throwing its hat into the ring. Few Asian leader want to shake hands with a man who believes Japan was rich to invade and murder millions. I assume he might welcome a visit to SS graves in Germany.

Since the end of World War II, the people of Japan have constructed a modern democratic society. However, their failure to address behavior during World War II in which Japanese soldiers murdered millions of people and raped a few million women has never been addressed. It is t his attitude which led Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Taro Aso to utter inane remarks about how modern Japan can learn from those good old Nazis of yore. There is a movement within Japan to rewrite the Japanese Constitution and allow the nation to create a modern armed force. Aso suggested following the method employed by Adolf Hitler who simply voided the democratic Weimar Republic Constitution. As Aso notes, “it was changed before people realized it. Why don’t we learn from that method?”11
I assume it means the Japanese government should void those parts of the Constitution which prevent aggressive war. Just what Japan needs–go to war against China!!
