The title of a recently released Yahoo! article is “China must RETALIATE for Japan PM shrine visit: media” (Web-site/URL: http://news.yahoo.com/china-must-retaliate-japan-pm-shrine-visit-state-025701006.html).
“China’s state media on Friday urged “excessive” counter-measures after Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s inflammatory war shrine visit, as analysts warned against the dangers of provoking smoldering regional resentments”. It’s as if CHINA DOESN’T use “inflammatory” RHETORIC, making this the latest/yet another example of “We think they made us mad; they think we made them mad and here we go” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“The comment came after China summoned Tokyo’s ambassador on Thursday (December 26, 2013) to deliver a “STRONG REPRIMAND” after Abe paid respects at the Yasukuni Shrine earlier in the day”. “strong reprimand” is another way of saying BLAMING & CRITICIZING (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-AJviZ8Itk).
“South Korea, which also has a litany of historical resentments against Japan, slammed Abe’s visit as “anachronistic (chaotic) behavior“. And the United States — Tokyo’s key security ally — issued a RARE criticism, saying it was “disappointed” over an act “that will exacerbate (worsen) tensions with Japan’s neighbors“.
“The GLOBAL (?) Times, a paper THAT IS CLOSE TO China’s ruling Communist Party and often strikes a nationalist tone, said that people were “getting tired of… FUTILE ‘strong condemnations‘”. “strong condemnations” are now “futile” suggests that NO ONE IS LISTENING TO CHINA ANYMORE. Also “a paper that is close to China’s ruling Communist Party” suggests that this is PROPAGANDA. So “The Global Times” ISN’T so “global”. It should be named “the” CHINESE “Times” instead.
“In an editorial”, the Times WARNED: “China needs to take appropriate, even SLIGHTLY countermeasures” or else “be seen as a ‘paper tiger‘”, a PERCEPTION/INTERPRETATION that China is HYSTERICALLY AFRAID of (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“In Seoul, demonstrators, most of whom were in their 60s and 70s, shouted anti-Japanese slogans such as “DOWN WITH Abe!” and “Boycott Japanese goods!” outside the country’s (Japanese) embassy”. This sounds like the Bloomberg article “China’s Media Condemns Abe as BOYCOTT Calls Grow on Weibo” (Web-site/URL: http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-12-27/china-s-state-media-condemns-abe-visit-amid-calls-for-boycott.html?cmpid=yhoo).
“Similar scenes broke out in Hong Kong where protestors burned Japanese military flags emblazoned with the Chinese words for “shame“, a picture of Japanese Second World War general Hideki Tojo and a portrait of Abe”. Even “Long Hair” LEUNG KWOK HUNG is supporting China in this matter which is saying something because he staunchly OPPOSES China in almost all other matters.
“Analysts said the visit showed Abe’s determination to drag Japan, constrained by a US-imposed “pacifist” constitution that he wants to change, to the right and nudges Northeast Asia a significant step closer to conflict”. Well the US is adopting a “pacifist” approach because this nonsense has been going on for so long that IT’S SIMPLY IMPOSSIBLE TO TAKE SIDES. The Japanese also killed AMERICANS when they bombed PEARL HARBOR and yet, the United States has remained REMARKABLY RESTRAINED. This is not to say that the United States is a saint (far from it), but there are MANY more important issues to deal with in the world other than FIGHTING OVER AN OBSCURE GROUP OF ISLANDS.
“In a commentary on Abe’s visit, the PLA Daily, the newspaper of China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), said it “once again exposed the IMPUNITY of Abe on the rightist road and also conveys a VERY DANGEROUS signal“. Those enshrined at Yasukuni were “DEVILS, butchers, and executioners who were drenched in blood and brought havoc to hundreds of millions of people in Asia”, as if CHINA HAS NEVER “brought havoc” on anyone. Of course, as we know, NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH making this the latest/yet another example of “We think they made us mad; they think we made them mad and here we go” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). This was written by a Chinese MILITARY newspaper so, of course, they will ISSUE THREATS. “Abe not only TRAMPLED ON HUMAN CONSCIENCE, but insulted the IQ of people in the victim countries“, excluding THE UNITED STATES because even though PEARL HARBOR was bombed by the Japanese, the US CAN’T be considered a “victim” here because it is STAYING OUT of this sick feud. This is China’s TWISTED INTERPRETATION (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“The party MOUTHPIECE, the People’s Daily, drove home in a commentary its view that Japan appears incapable of understanding its part in the war”. “History tells people that one country which cannot correctly understand the EVIL FASCIST (?) war, nor reflect on war crimes, cannot truly achieve national rejuvenation“. CHINA seems to be acting like “evil fascists”, but this is EXPECTED from “the party mouthpiece” because “the party mouthpiece” which only SPITS OUT GOVERNMENT-APPROVED PROPAGANDA (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
“Jia Qingguo, an international relations expert at Peking University, described Abe as reckless and MISGUIDED“, as if CHINESE POLITICIANS AREN’T. “I think he’s (ABE is) VERY IRRESPONSIBLE” and CHINA ISN’T? “He knows THE NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCE of this for China-Japan relations“. Well, CHINA should “know the negative consequence of” EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE RHETORIC & BEHAVIOR. “Maybe it’s what he really believes in his mind, that is the history of the Second World War has been MISINTERPRETED BY THE REST OF THE WORLD, what Japan did was the RIGHT thing“. Of course, Japan has committed MANY mistakes, but we can say the same thing about MAO ZEDONG during THE CULTURAL REVOLUTION and JIANG ZEMIN who stayed in power for 13 years as General Secretary of the Communist Party (Web-site/URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jiang_Zemin).
Finally, “China’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Friday (December 27, 2013) that the Japanese leader’s argument that it was a private visit was “FEEBLE and NOT worth refuting. What we see is HYPOCRISY and SELF-CONTRADICTION“, again as if CHINA DOESN’T do this/ISN’T “hypocritical”. Again, of course, as we know, NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH making this the latest/yet another example of “We think they made us mad; they think we made them mad and here we go” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
To conclude “retaliation” reinforces the notion that China is obsessed with REVENGE, which as we know is an AMBASSADOR OF DOOM (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4h7cmuRLwME). On top of this, notice “state media”. Secondly, usually, “state media” is UNRELIABLE but NOT in this case. When they say they will “retaliate” they either literally or more often than not through EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE RHETORIC. China can only be considered reasonable here because SOUTH KOREA is also angry with Japan. Otherwise, we can COMPLETELY IGNORE CHINA because this nonsense has been going on for far too long. The final thing to notice is that once again, CHINA is doing MOST of the talking on this issue.
