JAPAN’S MOVES AWAY FROM THE US

April 19, 2011 By Joseph P. Farrell

As most of you know by now, I am intrigued with the political context surrounding the Japan disaster, and with the possibility that this context argues for the earthquake having been artificially induced. Well, consider this article (and it's a bombshell):

Japan Rethinks US Relationship

Besides the fact that the article clearly spells out the political thrust of the Japan Democratic Party, which took power in that country after decades of rule by the Liberal Democrats, to reorient Japanese foreign policy toward closer relations with China and India and other Asian powers.

What really leaps out from the article, however, are these statements: "In November last year, US Defence Secretary Robert Gates warned Japan that it would face “serious consequences” if the new government did not honour the commitments on the bases given by the former government.

"During his visit, Gates loudly lobbied for an extension of the military bases agreement. The Japanese media were openly critical of Gates, describing the Defence Secretary as a “bully”. But since then, both sides have adopted a more diplomatic stance."

One wonder exactly what "serious consequences" were in Mr. Gates' mind when he issued what can only be understood as a threat, and  from the article's coverage, the Japanese certainly understood his remarks to be a threat. A little analysis of that statement is even more disconcerting. What possible "serious consequences" could Gates have in mind? Economic warfare? Beyond exports of food to Japan, what could the USA threaten Japan with? If anything, Japan along with China has been the biggest purchaser of increasingly worthless American treasury notes. So economic threats seem to be out, since Japan would easily be in a position to respond in kind.

So, to my mind, economic threats do not make sense.  That leaves... a threat of force. But what kind of force? The USA could ill afford any direct military threats, for once made, the mask would be off America's carefully contrived role as the benevolent policeman of the world, for a direct and open threat against an ally would be conceived by that ally, and indeed all of Asia, as imperialism, and nothing more. It  would, conceivably, solidify the new Japanese government's determination to stay the path in its reorientation toward a pro-Asian policy. Which leaves...indirect or covert threats, i.e., a threat that "those in the know" inside of Japan could only interpret as coming from the US, but yet that remained, for public purposes, a threat that could not be conceived as such, a threat that would allow the USA "plausible deniability." Such a threat would have to come, perforce, from the use of black technologies, and/or, covert operations...

...the plot, as they say, has just thickened...
