中國崛起,日本右傾

屋主前言:日本「挑機」玩火,連美國Washington Post也罕有起用頭版分析並批評日本右傾。好笑是日本TBS報道此事時竟說「反映美國如何關心日本輿論變化」(原文:アメリカの有力紙が日本の内政関連の記事を一面で掲載するのは珍しいことで、日本の世論の変化に対するアメリカの関心の高さを表わしたものといえます。) 這種語言偽術似曾相識。


With China’s rise, Japan shifts to the right
(Washington Post, 22 Sep 2012)


TOKYO
— Japan is in the midst of a gradual but significant shift to the right, acting more confrontationally in the region than at any time since World War II.

The shift applies strictly to Japan’s foreign policy and military strategy, not social issues, and has been driven both by China’s rapid maritime expansion — particularly its emphatic claims on contested territory — and by a growing sense here that Japan should recover the clout squandered amid two lost decades of economic stagnation.

Japan’s shift can be seen in an increasingly muscular role for the nation’s Self-Defense Forces (SDF), in a push among mainstream politicians to revise key portions of the pacifist constitution and in a new willingness to clash with China, particularly in the East China Sea, where U.S. Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta said this week he was “concerned about conflict.”

But analysts stress that Japan, even with its rightward shift, still remains ambivalent about its military; Japan is merely moving toward the center, they say, after decades of being perhaps the world’s most pacifist advanced nation.

“The post-World War II Japan policy was to be low-key and cooperation-oriented,” said Narushige Michishita, a self-described moderate and a security expert at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies in Tokyo. “We tried to avoid any confrontation or friction with surrounding countries. . . . But there’s a widespread feeling in the minds of Japanese people that being nice didn’t work out.”

Polls suggest Japanese are increasingly concerned about security and feel their country faces an outside threat. According to government data collected earlier this year, 25 percent think Japan should increase its military strength, compared with 14 percent three years ago and 8 percent in 1991.

That shift in thinking is reflected in Japan’s leaders, including hawkish Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, son of an SDF member, who has restored the U.S.-Japan security alliance as the “foundation” of Tokyo’s foreign policy. That’s a stark shift from three years ago, when then-leader Yukio Hatoyama frayed ties with Washington and dreamed of a harmonious “East Asian community” that included China.

But Noda, unpopular and likely facing an election in the upcoming months, is a relative moderate compared with those lining up to take his place. Front-runner Shigeru Ishiba, of the Liberal Democratic Party, said in a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal that the SDF should be able to fire warning shots against maritime intruders; currently, the SDF yields to the Coast Guard to handle incursions. Another top candidate, Nobuteru Ishihara, son of China-baiting Tokyo Gov. Shintaro Ishihara, said recently that part of the country “will be snatched” if Japan is off guard.

Some of the get-tough-on-China talk, surging this summer amid a recent territorial dispute, merely caters to Japan’s small and vocal group of nationalists. But such security issues have also “become more important to common people as well,” said Yuichi Hosoya, a professor of international politics at Keio University, and no politician can ignore that.

日本右倾是事实,但几乎就仅仅是政治家们而已。有趣的是中国类似的极端爱国主义情绪同样高涨,却差不多都是在大众,特别是底层大众中蔓延。说到日本的军国主义野心,美国其实比中国更加关注也说不定。从冷战时代以来,美国在日驻军的首要目的就是压制日本,也就是所谓的“瓶盖理论”。

日本沒有右傾,相反,是在以維護和平和亞洲平衡之信念,防止軍國主義勢力對亞洲的威脅。

雖然發生的可能性極低,我最不希望有政客用保釣挑起兩岸政府糾紛。

歷史的真相....可能是釣魚台既不是日本,亦不中共,而是台灣的。
而保釣運動亦是源於台灣,而在香港發揚光大,
對不起!而中共從來只是抽水,而且由他們手上失去的土地實在太多太多了,當年程祥的結局如何?是否忘記歷史的教訓... !!

アメリカの有力紙「ワシントンポスト」は尖閣諸島をめぐる中国との領有権争いなどを受け、「日本が右傾化している」と題する記事を一面に掲載しました。

この中で、ワシントンポストは「日本は徐々にだが右傾化への重要な変化の途上にある」としたうえで、「こうした変化が日本の外交安全保障政策に厳密にあてはまる」と指摘しました。その上で、日本国内の安全保障問題への関心の高まり、自衛隊の役割強化や憲法改正へ向けた動きなどを詳しく紹介する一方、「こうした変化は日本が中道路線へ向け動き始めただけのこと」とする日本の専門家の意見もあわせて掲載しています。

アメリカの有力紙が日本の内政関連の記事を一面で掲載するのは珍しいことで、日本の世論の変化に対するアメリカの関心の高さを表わしたものといえます。

還是那句,中日都有不對,管不好自己方的人,搞到互相刺激,事實上釣魚台的利益比較起中日的貿易交流根本沒法比這次只是雙方都有人想以此來作政治資本,真是一件非常失敗的政治示範

有甚麼教訓不教訓?面對中共大國崛起,小日本除了擴軍自保還能做甚麼?不會有中國人天真地以為日本會宣布永久廢除自衛隊,然後把九洲四國割讓中共,希望中共收手吧?

正如上文受訪者所述,日本只是走回中間而已。

如果要說甚麼歷史教訓,勉強可說日本要謹記不要做得太盡,當年拿了朝鮮滿州還鎌未夠,結果貪字得個貧……

當年二戰結束後,美國極欲清除日本結構中的軍國主義,包括政治、財閥等。  結果韓戰爆發後,為了戰略和後勤考量,這些行動全部停止,來取得日本的支持。 這些極端主義的思想繼續濳伏在日本的政經結構中。 想不到現在卻有死灰復燃之勢... 歷史真的只會不斷重演,而大多人卻仍記取不到任何教訓...
