Only one point will be taken up here. Ishihara, who led to the nationalization of the Senkaku Islands, said that "Tokyo will buy the Senkaku." With this, when the diplomatic relations between Japan and China were normalized in 1972, the "territorial dispute shelving" agreement between Prime Ministers Zhou Enlai and Kakuei Tanaka was finally destroyed, and the relationship between Japan and China was decisively deteriorated. is. This paved the way for today's US-China conflict and the New Cold War, and became a dewdrop that slammed the Japanese government into the US strategy of "Taiwan emergency is Japan emergency."
Certainly, on December 8, 2008, a Chinese ship "invasion of the territorial waters" occurred on the Senkaku Islands, and on September 7, 2010, a Chinese fishing ship collision occurred. Since then, almost every month, public vessels such as the State Oceanic Administration of China and the Fisheries Bureau have repeatedly "invaded the territory" in the waters around the Senkaku Islands, strengthening their offensive to break Japan's effective control of the Senkaku Islands.
In response to this move, on April 16, 2012, then Governor Shintaro Ishihara gave a lecture at a symposium hosted by the Heritage Foundation in Washington, stating that "a basic agreement was reached to purchase the Senkaku Islands from land rights officials." He provoked China, saying, "We will build port facilities on the island to ensure Japan's effective control." Even the Tokyo staff who accompanied him was astonished by the water in his ears.
Only the Foundation executives knew it. Following the lecture, the debate was held with Walter Roman of the Foundation as the moderator and Professor James Hour of Vanderbilt University and former Assistant Secretary of Defense Richard Laures commenting as panelists. In other words, the lecture by Governor Ishihara was the first part of the voice of Japan, and the second part was the view of the United States.
The problem is that they bothered to announce a purchase agreement in Washington. The Heritage Foundation is a warlike think tank that has the most influence on the US government. Known as the main planner and supporter of the Reagan Doctrine from the 1980s to the early 1990s. With this, the US government will support the resistance movement by publicly and non-publicly intervening in Afghanistan, Angola, Cambodia, Nicaragua, etc. with anti-communism. He supported anti-communism worldwide during the Cold War.
The foundation not only helped contain the "evil empire" of the Soviet Union, but also helped the US government realize the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 as a realistic foreign policy goal. It goes without saying that the US military-industrial complex and huge financial capital are behind it.
In 2008, China will clearly show a move to challenge the hegemony of the United States by changing the line of Deng Xiaoping's will "Hide Your Strength (Hiding Your Talent and Accumulating Power Inside)". The sign was that in 2007, a senior Chinese Navy official proposed to the U.S. Pacific Army (Hawaii) Keating Commander that "China and the United States divide the Pacific Ocean into two in Hawaii, and the west is controlled by China." It was especially clear. The frequent movements of Chinese ships in the waters of the Senkaku Islands since 2008 were none other than the movement of the Chinese Navy to make a breakthrough eastward in the Pacific Ocean. Favorably, it is a statement of intention to retreat the hegemonic United States, which controls the entire Pacific Ocean, to the east and "end the century of humiliation by British-American rule."
There is no doubt that Ishihara was deeply incorporated into Washington. His lecture took full advantage of the heightened tensions between Japan and China over the Senkaku Islands and was the decisive trigger to lead Japanese public opinion to "warning and hatred of China." The Heritage Foundation tamed a far-right writer who had a great influence on the Japanese, and was fully prepared to call Washington to make a statement about buying in Tokyo. There is a big difference in political influence between doing it in Tokyo and doing it in Washington.
Ishihara, who fueled the Japanese's tendency toward conservative nationalism with anti-American and anti-American speech represented by "Japan That Can Say No" co-authored with Akio Morita in the 1980s, played Trump six years after his lecture at the Heritage Foundation. There is no doubt that it paved the way for the US administration to declare the New Cold War between the United States and China. Nippon Kaigi. Those who have fueled anti-Chinese and anti-Korean sentiment and have turned Japanese public opinion to the right are all connected to Washington by the back. They are an anti-American ideologue group who pretends to be anti-American by criticizing the postwar occupation by the United States and enslavement to the United States.
Again, 2022 is 77 years after the defeat against the United States, and is in line with the 77 years from the 1868 Meiji Restoration to the 1945 defeat against the United States. That is, prewar and postwar are even in time. Therefore, this blog proposes that 2023, the first year of the new 1977, should be the start of the third period of modern Japan. Ishihara's death in early 2022 should be regarded as a symbolic event that marks the end of the postwar period as the second period of modern Japan.
