Japan’s nationalist prime minister has dismissed the Tokyo war crimes trials in the aftermath of World War II as nothing more than victors’ justice.
Shinzo Abe, who was elected in a landslide general election victory in December, expressed beliefs that are likely to trigger anger in nations that were occupied by the forces of imperial Japan in the early decades of the last century and raise eyebrows in allied nations, primarily the United States.
“The view of that great war was not formed by the Japanese themselves, but rather by the victorious Allies, and it is by their judgement only that [Japanese] were condemned,” Mr Abe told a meeting of the House of Representatives Budget Committee on Tuesday.
In his previous short-lived spell as prime minister, for 12 months from September 2006, Mr Abe said that the 28 Japanese military and political leaders charged with Class-A war crimes are “not war criminals under the laws of Japan.”

I have been focusing on Europe’s return to its Nazis past. But on the other side there is another nation, that was equally wicked and the Nazi-regime in Germany. The empire of Japan.
The two empires joined hands in 1940. Japan and Germany fought on the same side, having the USA, United Kingdom and Russia as their common enemy.
Hardly anything can surpass the crimes against humanity committed by Nazi-Germany. But the empire of Japan was not fare behind in cruel oppression, torture, rape and murder of innocent civilians.
The Asian tigers seems to be loaning for another war. With China putting a trillion USD into its armed forces, and a nuclear armed North Korea, this is a tinder box just waiting to explode.
As a dog returns to his own vomit, So a fool repeats his folly
We know that there will be merciless violence on a global scale, just before the Messiah Jesus returns. The Japanese PM is just giving his contribution to the ongoing lawlessness. Not only in Japan, but all over the world: The dog is about to return to its vomit.
