鳩山総理大臣について Concerning Prime Minister Hatoyama

Yesterday, Japanese Prime Minister Hatoyama announced his resignation. I was rather saddened by this. Yes, I would have been more happy if he had been more decisive. However, I felt that The United States of America bullied him unmercifully over the Futenma issue.


As usual, American behavior towards Japan on this issue showed a total lack of understanding of events in Japan. And I think the result of this will be that NO government in Japan will now solve the Futenma issue to America's satisfaction.


And eventually, this will lead to the breakup of the Japanese/American military alliance, and a new arrangement in Northern Asia.


Well, I think it is time. The Cold War is over, and America is weakening. American domestic disasters will gradually doom American efforts to dominate the world with military power.


But in general, I think this is a good thing. Since the end of the Cold War, the US military has become too big. And some Americans have grown too much in love with the worldwide American Military Empire.


It is time for America to realize that the world has changed. But truly, over the Futenma issue in Japan, America has shot it self in the foot, again.
