Japan the “victim” or “victimized?”

Japan the “victim” or “victimized?”

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of World War Two / Greater East Asian War and the nuclear bombs dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 

At the United Nations Disarmament Committee meeting the Japanese delegation suggested during this anniversary year world leaders visit Hiroshima or Nagasaki.  Expressing a desire for world leaders to view firsthand the devastation caused by the use of nuclear weapons.  The Chinese Communist delegation was quick to object claiming Japan was trying to place itself as a victim of World War Two.  The South Korean delegation was quick to agree with the Chinese Communist delegation. 

Really?  South Korean delegation agreeing with the Chinese delegation in bashing Japan?  The current South Korean government led by President Park Geun-hye (박근혜) never misses an opportunity to engage in Japan bashing even if it means creating a wedge in the Japan, USA, and South Korean alliance. 

The Japan – USA – South Korean alliance has a goal of deterring and discouraging Communist aggression in Asia from the belligerents in North Korea and China.  South Korea continues to be on the receiving end of North Korean hostile actions illustrating the importance of the alliance for President Park’s country.  The safety and security of her country she continues to subvert to achieve her obsession of victimizing Japan. 

Visiting the peace park museums in Hiroshima and Nagasaki the aura is not Japan claiming to be a victim of those nuclear weapons.  It is clear to see the purpose of those museums is to illustrate the horrors of nuclear weapons seeking to urge the world to never use those weapons in the future.  The message is anti-nuclear weapons, not “woe is me I am a victim.” 

Visit the gift shop at the Hiroshima Peace Park museum and t-shirts are for sale.  According to the Chinese and South Korean U.N. delegations one could expect to find a t-shirt with the following inscription, “I am a victim.”  Instead if they visited in 2011 they would have notice t-shirts memorializing the president of the country that drop those bombs, President Obama.  The inscription on the t-shirts read, “Obamajority.”     

Japan is not claiming to be a victim but is being victimized by the Communist in China and their willing accomplices’ in the South Korean government.
