Japanese politicians should have a bottom line

  "The Chinese people worry a small number of Japanese, possibly including some politically influential figures, which tend to revive militarism," said the Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping when he met Tokuma Utsunomiya and other Japanese friends in 1987.

  It is a pity that the judgment now is as realistic as it used to be. Japan began to implement Imperial Constitution of Japan in 1890, and then it quickly took the road to militarism featuring military expansion and wars of aggression.

  Laid down in 1947, the Peace Constitution was aimed at completely eliminating militarism of launching aggressive war and clearing away the soil of launching wars.

  Right-wing forces in Japan instinctively disagree with basic principles set in the Peace Constitution. Founding principles of Liberal Democratic Party expressly states, "Seeking for independently modifying constitution."

  Ignoring the trend of the times featuring peace and development, and making a big fuss about the peace clause of the Constitution that renounces war as a sovereign right of the nation.

  What on earth do Japanese politicians want to do? Do they really want to violate the bottom line?

  Once Peace Constitution is modified, Japan has to bear serious consequences. Known for being implicative, the Japanese politicians are unwilling or dare not to speak out their desires. Some Japanese politicians are reluctant to admit Japan's surrender and just mention it as "the end of the war". They make an utmost effort to avoid the fact of invasion and even always think they are victims instead of injurers.

  Whether Japan can face up to its aggression history and then take a road of peace and development has always been a common concern of Asian neighbors and the international community.

  Asian countries and international community should be highly vigilant of Japan’s tendency of getting rid of postwar institutions and denying peace and development.

  "Chinese people wish to make friends with Japanese people, and more than 90 percent Japanese are also willing to get well with Chinese people," Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping also said to Japanese friends in 1987. The Chinese people hold the same attitude, and Chinese people’s judgment of Japanese longing for a friendly Sino-Japan relationship also remains the same.
