Yesterday on my Fireside Chat News and Views from the Nefarium, I mentioned two articles that I found very intriguing as corroborative political and economic contexts from which to view the hypothesis that the disaster that befell the Japanese people was artificially induced. The articles I referred to are linked here:

Japanese Water-Powered Car

Japan, China, S. Korea to hold Tokyo Summit

Let's look at the opening statement of that second article more closely: "The leaders of Japan, China, and South Korea will hold a two-day summit in Tokyo from May 21 to discuss nuclear safety, disaster preparedness and other issues, Japan's government said Friday."  As I pointed out in my video chat yesterday, this appears to me to be a subtle signal that a new regional security arrangement is in the works between the three Asian economic powerhouses, for notably, the USA has been bypassed in these talks, even though the talks themselves were initiated in 2008.  The context, now, though, has changed with the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster.

This raises the question of what is meant here by "other issues" that will be discussed. Consider the highly suggestive importance of those two words: we are in the middle of a catastrophe in Japan, and "other issues" are going to be addressed - addressed privately - by those three nations. We may assume that these issues will broaden and deepen their mutual security interests, and that these will include a coordinated energy policy...

...which leads us to the first article: a water-powered car, ready for mass-production. There is no two ways to read this other than (1) as a continuation of Japan's policy, emplaced after the 1973 Yom Kippur War and the OPEC oil embargo, to liberate Japan from petroleum dependency, and (2) as therefore a direct blow to the vested corporate interests of the Anglo-American corporate elite.

This will place the statements coming out of the coming summit in a new light, and I suggest we will need to follow them closely, for in my opinion, Japan is quietly telling that corporate elite "we are not going to role over and die," and they have, by placing these security issues on the agenda for the summit, considerably upped the ante by involving China and South Korea.
