U.S. regime claims to be neutral, while instigating disputes

The Japanese, on the other hand, can’t avoid discussing this, because it involves the Japanese regime taking over lands that belong to China. As usual, you can count on the American regime to turn the victims into the aggressors, and vice versa.  Rather than allow the public to know that the U.S. is provoking a war with China, the U.S. regime, as usual, acts as if it is “helping out a friend”, who happens to be under attack, when in reality, the so called “victims” were the ones who provoked the attack in the first place.


WASHINGTON (Jiji Press)–The United States is not neutral on the issue of the Diaoyu Islands due to its responsibilities for their “defense” under a security treaty with Japan, former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage has said.

We’re not neutral when our ally is a “victim of coercion or aggression or intimidation“, Armitage said in a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, referring to Japan.

Armitage, who together with other former U.S. officials visited Japan and China in October, said his group had to overcome some misunderstandings in Beijing over the fact that the United States has not announced its position on the question of sovereignty of the islands.

“They would say, ‘We appreciate your neutrality,’ and we [would say], ‘We’re not neutral. We just haven’t declared one way or the other,’” he told the paper.

Welcoming what he sees as recent easing in Sino-Japanese tensions, Armitage said a more permanent solution will have to wait until next year, after the Dec. 16 House of Representatives election in Japan and the completion of China’s leadership transition in March.

“From now to then, I think the best we can do is to keep a lid on it and keep people calm and rational,” he said.

On Liberal Democratic Party leader Shinzo Abe, tipped to be Japan’s next prime minister, Armitage said Abe may not be as much of a right-wing hawk in office as he is sometimes portrayed, according to the daily.

He noted that Abe chose not to visit Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo during his previous term as prime minister.

“Although he came in to the previous prime minister job with a reputation for great conservatism, he actually governed quite pragmatically, and I look forward to that,” Armitage said.
