According to a report by the Kyodo News Agency on the 17th, the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman and Republican Congressman Royce met with Japanese politicians such as Hiroshi Nakasone in Tokyo on the 17th. When Reyes criticized Abe for paying homage to the Yasukuni Shrine, he said that “the visit to the Yasukuni Shrine has caused chaos in Japan, the United States and South Korea. Isn’t this good for China?” ”
Royce’s remarks, on the surface, are consistent with the U.S. government’s opposition to Abe’s visits, but they are carefully tasted, but there is another extraneous voice.
According to Royce’s logic, he opposed Abe’s visit to the shrine. He was not worried that Abe would reverse the harm to the world, but worried that the visit to the Yasukuni Shrine would cause the split of the United States, Japan and South Korea, and was not conducive to coping with China. Obviously, Royce is very wary of China’s development.
As is known to all, the Yasukuni Shrine is a spiritual tool and symbol of Japanese militarism’s war of aggression during the Second World War. It has so far enshrined 14 Class-A war criminals who committed heinous crimes against the people of the victimized countries in Asia. The essence of Abe’s visit to the Yasukuni Shrine is to beautify the history of Japanese militarism’s foreign aggression and colonial rule, attempting to subvert the international community’s just trial of Japanese militarism and challenge the post-World War II international order. Abe’s move to pay homage to the Yasukuni Shrine not only seriously hurts the feelings of the Chinese people, but also threatens the national interests of the United States. After all, the United States is the leader in establishing international order after the Second World War.
Royce, who is the leader of the US House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs Committee, turned a blind eye to Abe’s visit to the Yasukuni Shrine and avoided talking about harming US interests, but how to unite Japan and South Korea. It is really ridiculous to deal with China’s exceptional heart. This should not be a behavior of a person who has a major influence on the US government’s foreign policy.
The reason is that Royce’s cold-hearted thinking is at work.
Royce should see that Japan is no longer Japan at the beginning of World War II. Since Abe regained power, he began to question the Tokyo trial, throwing out the definition of aggression, not recognizing that the issue of comfort women is a crime of the state, and advocates amending the peace constitution and expanding armaments, which poses a real threat to world and regional peace. For Japan’s eagerness to move, the United States should abandon the Cold War mentality and find ways to unite China and prevent Japan from slipping into the abyss of militarism again.
Royce should understand that the world today is not the world of the Cold War. With the drastic changes in Eastern Europe, the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the development of emerging economies, the world pattern has changed from the US and the Soviet Union to the hegemony, and has changed to a “super-multipolar” direction. As the global economic center is shifting from Europe and the United States to Asia, the world’s center of gravity is shifting from being to the Asian region, and the world’s pattern is changing. In this kind of historical change, if some politicians in the United States still take the Cold War mentality as a guise, they will inevitably be abandoned by history.
At present, China and the United States have formed a blending pattern of interests among you and me, and no one can do without anyone, and no one can contain them. The new-type relationship between China and the United States, which is under construction, requires the two sides to abandon the Cold War mentality of “preventing each other, suspicion, and demolition” in order to achieve the development goal of “no conflict, no confrontation, mutual respect, mutual benefit and win-win”. .
The world trend, Haohao soup, Shunzhichang, the reverse is dead. Facts have proved that the rise of China is an inevitable choice of history and a general trend. Anyone who attempts to stop this historical process cannot succeed and cannot succeed.
Royce, it’s time to change your mind! (Reporter Lei Dongrui)
