Rush to war state brings ruin of island country

The Japan Defence Ministry recently announced that it officially decided to introduce F-35B to the air "Self-defence Force".

This senseless act is aimed to bolster the attack ability of the SDF and turn the country into a military power and realize its overseas expansion at any cost.

The introduction of the fighter also aims at the operation of carrier-level Izumo escort ship.

Military experts contend that the combination of F-35B with an attack landing ship will help the fleet acquire "qualitative surge" in attack capability, commenting that their overall combat power will be no less than U.S. carrier equipped with F/A-18E/F.

Japan armed the air SDF with the state-of-the art fighter and made naval SDF's possession of a carrier a fait accompli. This shows the true colors of Japan as an aggressor country which has thrown off its mask of "exclusive defence" that had been so far kept for mere form's sake.

Japan rushes headlong into a war state to inflict disaster on humankind again, clean indifferent to the trend of the regional situation.

Under the excuse of coping with "threats" from someone, the Abe group has increased the military spending to hit the historical high for seven consecutive years and recently announced that it would include record over 5 300 billion yen to the estimate budget for next year.

By setting up a "space operational force" with the basic mission of constantly monitoring space and an electronic warfare unit in ground SDF, Japan intends to expand the military operational theatre of the SDF to space and cyber space, to say nothing of the sky, the land and the sea.

Today the SDF have turned into aggression forces capable of fighting a war at any time in any place beyond the boundary of the archipelago.

It is the invariable ambition of the Abe group to retake the status of former colonial power with samurai descendents overheated with reinvasion aboard carriers equipped with preemptive attack capabilities under the fluttering "flag of rising sun shedding rays" as the Japanese imperialists did in the last century.

Too much obsession with ambition will lead to ruin.

It is a lesson taught by the shameful defeat of Japan that defiance of people's warnings, greed for aggression and reckless frenzy will bring only miserable ruin.

Not only the Asian people who underwent pain and misfortune at the hands of the Japanese imperialists in the past but also the international community will never remain an onlooker to Japan's moves for becoming a military power and the unrestricted overseas advance of SDF.

Japan must not forget that its push for becoming a war state will end up in the ruin of the island country.
