Things are developing as I talked with my son. I told him that the Abe administration would divert money to the war industries in the form of public work projects. Japan’s economy will be recovered to the level where consumption tax hike is feasible. Thereafter, however, the situation will get worst and it is likely that the administration will follow the same way as the Nazi government which nationalized its central bank. The people should recognize it and stop the government from doing so.

Mystery of Japanese Government’ Persistence to Introduce Defective Fighters F-35 Solved!
Today on January 29 the Sankei Shimbun has posted an astonishing scoop on the front page.
The article says that the Japanese government is vexed by a problem that some parts made in Japan are used for F-35 fighters to be schedule to be introduce by the government, and Israel plans to purchase the fighters from the U.S., which threatens to constitute a violation of so-called Three Principles of Arms Exports.
This issue is merely violation of the Principles.
However, what the scoop of the Sankei Shimbun has let us know is far from such a small matter.
Surprisingly, the fact is that Japan will become a hub for development, production and repair of defective fighters F-35.
We can see real existence, though hidden behind it, of U.S. military-industrial complex that contemplate to have Japanese war industries join in developing, producing and repairing weapons.
This problem must be a big issue hidden by the Abe administration.
Undoubtedly, this will be the biggest issue to be talked about when he visits the U.S. at the end of February.
The mystery has been solved.
Why has the Japanese government consisted to introduce defective fighters F-35?
I wonder if other media outlets will write a follow-up article.
I wonder if political parties which support the current Constitution will stick to grilling the government on this problem.
