Actually Japan Drifts to the Right?

There are some peoples who say with enthusiasm that Japan is drifting to the right. Is it really like that? Is Japan just trying to only become a normal country whose people care about the land they live on as every coutry’s people do?

Japan has apologized over and over again and made many reparations to the victim countries after the war.
The problem is that some govts of these countries have not only not informed the public about these facts but have also provided their people with terrible anti-Japan educations for a long time. Therefore, no matter how much Japan shows its sincerity, it couldn’t establish better relations with them. Actually, it was only in 2005 that the S.Korean people knew about Japan-Republic of Korea Basic Relations Treaty of 1965, 40 years after of the conclusion of the treaty!, in which the two countries came to important arrangements about postwar reparations, and Japan promised to offer a huge amount of money to S.K, roughly 1.5 times the national budget of it at the time. Later, S.K govt received it without telling its people. In addition Japan has supported the Korean govt every time it was hit by a currency crisis or economic troubles by giving 1-1.5 billion-dollar per event or by concluding bilateral swap agreements with S.K, of course, these also have been disclosed in public.

If Japan seems to have take a tougher line to these countries recently, it might be because the Japanese govt is gradually begining to doubt whether these countries really are worthy of its confidence?, they really can follow the international rules? For example, nonsensically, the number of Nanjing Massacre’s victims is increasing substantially every year in China, or they say in S.K parents have taught their children “You do every bad thing for beating Japanese” and now the children have been speaking evil of Japan with mixture of fact and fiction to the people of the world just in keeping with the teaching, or if Japan remarks against their will a bit, their govt incite a riot against Japan and sometimes makes its people destroy Japanese company buildings there and doesn’t try to make any compensation for their enormous loss. I wonder why such violence could be allowed in the international community these days?
I dare say, instead the international community accuses Japan of the issue of comfort women 70 years ago, it should have more interest in China’s violence directed against Japan,Tibet and Vietnam or tens of thousands of N.Korean women who said to be sold openly to China near the borther between N.K and China NOW.

China’s military budget has become the second largest in the world after America. It has been increasing at an unusually rapid rate, more than double in the past 6 years. Now it is beginning to step on the toes of other countries’ territories with its massive military power, having an intensive conflict with Japan, Philippines and Vietnam over the Senkaku Islands and the South China Sea. It has also become a serious problem that China has tortured many Tibetan monks, pushed them to suicide after invading Tibet and has been cracking down on Uighur.

On the other hand, Japan has maintained the pacifist Constitution since the end of the war, which advocates the renunciation of war and complete pacifism, for which even the right to life of Japanese could be threatened if Japan were to go into real combat. An attempt to revision of the constitution still could face stubborn opposition from its own people. As the constitution prohibits Japan from sending the Self-Defense Forces to a war zone, they have never killed even a single foreigner after the war. So, again, Japan’s contributions to the United Nations is still the world’s second largest after America. It has provided financial and technological aid to developing countries generously and played a big role for peace and development of the world ever. Its people of today hate any kind of conflict or speaking ill of other countries.

I think it is absurdly illogical that in spite of the above situation China describes Japan as “becoming militarized” or blames Japan on the war that happened 68 years before. I guess most Japanese can’t believe their ears to hear China’s accusation against Japan, and would say “Why are we Japanese who have practiced pacifism seriously criticized for militarization by China that continues military expansion and endangers the safety of its neighbors even now ?”
