G7 Emergency Summit to Debate Ukraine Crisis: Subtle US-German Relations Shown in Photos and Isolation of Japan

Here are some photos distributed by Western media at the G7 Emergency Summit held at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, Belgium on March 24, 2022 to discuss Ukraine issues. One month after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. It has been nearly half a century since the G7 Summit was established as a gathering of leaders of the world's leading developed countries. But today, it is said that it is dysfunctional due to the rise of emerging powers such as China. You can understand it just by looking at the pictures.

It is clear that Britain, which has left the European Union (EU), shows off its unity with the United States, and France is trying to show its presence against the Anglo-Saxon alliance between the United States and Britain. The delicate US-German relations are also highlighted. Although it is lumped together with the United States and Europe in the Japanese press, the cooperation between the four countries, the leading role of the G7, the United States and the United Kingdom, and the quasi-leading role, Germany and France, is not straightforward, and there is a serious dissonance in this discussion on the policy toward Russia. It can be seen that it is occurring.
Under these circumstances, the Japanese prime minister has no presence at all. In the first place, Japan has been involved since the first summit by the G5 (US, UK, France, West Germany, Japan) in 1975 because it has achieved tremendous reconstruction and has become an economic threat to the victorious nations of Europe and the United States. The purpose was to control Japan with the so-called postwar international order and rules created by the United States and Europe, and to curb and mitigate the threat. The Japanese government and the media have portrayed the addition of the five major powers at the Paris Peace Conference after World War I as if it had been recreated, but it was a major manipulation of information. Many Japanese are misunderstanding.
The two pictures below are scenes in which US President Joe Biden has a discussion with British Prime Minister Johnson, who is an "allied friend," during the break of the general discussion. French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron tries to interrupt, but Macron always retreats with a bitter face. The appearance of the German and Japanese prime ministers cannot be seen.
The Japanese prime minister, who is a foreign lord under the rule of the US president, who is the general of the "American Shogunate", has no choice but to answer "Yes Sir!" This is because it is something other than having an objection to the shogun. As mentioned above, Japan originally had little influence on the decision-making of G7 member countries, but it seems that it has become even less influential these days. Postwar Japanese political leaders are stubbornly obedient as US agents who are rulers.

In the official group photo below, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is in the middle and the leaders of the United States and Britain sandwich him. "Listen to Schortz, Ukrainian Zelensky's speech,'Break the wall Germany has built between Europe and Ukraine.' Russia's isolation depends on you." Biden may be laughing unintentionally because Schortz enthusiastically spoke with gestures to repel such pressure from the leaders of the United States and Britain. The appearance of the Japanese and Italian Prime Ministers standing on both ends is lonely. What does the smile of Prime Minister Fumio Kishida alone next to Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau listen to the conversation between the US and German leaders? British Prime Minister Johnson, who led Britain's departure from the EU, stands firmly, and French President Emmanuel Macron, who has one hand in his pocket, does not hide his sullenness.

The photo below is a scene from the 2018 G7 Summit in Canada. EU leaders led by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is rushing to US President Trump (at that time). It symbolized the deterioration of relations between the United States and the EU / Germany.
