Japan Is Catching War Fever


Asia-Pacific Working Group - Weekly Articles
 

Friends,

 

            Dramatic changes this week in Japan, as the Abe government  took major steps – against the wishes of the majority of Japanese people – to transform Japan into a national security state with echoes of pre-war militarism. And, once again, Okinawans are to be sacrificed on the altar of the U.S.-Japan military alliance.
