Since Friday's vote in Japan, China is increasingly on edge (it too has agendas), but the Chinese critiques echo sentiment that has been steamrollered into submission in Japan itself:
Oh, it's all so complex...China has said Japan is endangering peace in the region after it passed controversial laws expanding the role of its military abroad.Japan should learn "profound lessons from history", China's defence ministry said after Japan's parliamentary vote.The vote allows Japanese troops to fight overseas for the first time since the end of World War Two 70 years ago....Critics have focused on what they say is ambiguity in how the principles of the legislation will be interpreted, and the possibility that future governments will interpret them more broadly.
Oh, it's all so caring...
Oh, it all carries with it the stink of "peace and stability"...
Oh, there's no getting around it:
Guns 'n' gravy: Maybe this time Japan can be on the winning side and, coincidentally gain access to some business-rich opportunities.
Welcome to the past.
