"Jesus sat at meat in the house" - Nuclear Disaster

Near the Tokyo Station...

Nuclear Disaster (catastrophes nucléaires)

Pious Muslims never plan to hire suicide pilots for suicide attacks with hijacked commercial jet planes.

If pious Muslims think that Christianity is a threat they will try to overwhelm Christianity with virtue of Islam.

And, Americans are not trying to overwhelm Islam with American Christianity.  Americans buy crude oil cheap in the Middle East, sell weapons in a huge amount, and invite oil dollars into the American money market.  Everything Americans are doing in Islamic nations is capitalistic business.  But, it is only the elite in the Arab nations that can deal with rich Americans.  Poor Muslims are of no use for rich Americans.  Even, those out of the establishment in an Islamic nation are of no use for Americans, since such Muslims have no power and influence on crude oil business and oil dollar management.  So,  alienated Muslims can find an enemy in rich Americans as well as elite Muslims in their countries.  It is all capitalistic feud.

Indeed, though America invaded Iraq and Afghanistan, few Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan have converted to Christianity.  Those who fled to the U.S. from Iraq in the wake of the Iraqi War never convert to American Christianity.  But, they use dollars without hesitation.

The lesson to learn from the 9/11 terror is that the era of conflict between Christianity and Islam is over.  Now we have to know that we are in the era of conflict between power of money and believers of the God or Allah.

Anyway, I am very sorry for 3,000 victims of September 11, 2001, including scores of Japanese who were then working in their office in the World Trade Center.

But, who were the most shocked to hear the news at the time?  The Pope?

SECTION I: Fukushima Worse than Chernobyl?

It is said that the largest radiation level measured arund Chernobyl was about 3.7 million becquerels since its nuclear power plant exploded in 1986.

However, density of radioactivity in a smaller area around Fukushima Daiichi is higher than that in a wider area around Chernobyl.  It is because Fukushima reactors were more robustly built and protected than the blown-off Chernobyl reactor which had no containment vessel.  Yet, some hot spots in the northwest of Fukushima Daichi show higher doses than  3 million becquerels as indicated in the red area in the map below.

(Click to enlarge.)

So, the Fukushima Daiich accident is worse than Chernobyl?  Yes in a sense, but the affected area is restricted.  And no one has died in the Fukushima Daiichi accident while thousands died from radiation doses in Chernobyl while trying to contain radioactive fuel and material inside the old plant Russians designed and built.

SECTION II: Can China Manage 45 Nuclear Power Stations?

China now runs 13 nuclear power plants.  It has a plan to build 32 more nuclear power plants some of which are actually under construction. (Click to enlarge.)

The point at issue is whether the Chinese Government has ability to operate them all in a safe and reliable manner.  For example, the Chernobyl accident was 100% man-made while the Fukushima Daiichi accident was triggered by an magnitude-9.0 earthquake (the greatest scale in 1,000 years for Japan).

Fatalities in coal mines of China (more than 70% in the World)
Even in 2010, China lost 2,433 workers in coal mines due to accidents.

China is also the largest polluting country with sulfur oxides.
Country....Amount of Yearly Discharged Sulfur Oxides (Kilo tons) 
(As of 2009 for China; as of 2005 for others except Mexico 2002)
The amount of dust emission in China is also alarming.  Many Chinese who visit Japan are surprised to see how the sky looks blue in Japan.  In Chinese cities, a blue sky is something rare.

In addition, the fatality rate in traffic accidents in China is 10 times higher than Japan's and 6 times higher than America's.

Of course, the recent high-speed train accident in China with scores of deaths is stark contrast to Japan's shinkansen super-express train safety record with no deaths over half a century operation.  China could not steal safety from Japan, though it violated Japanese patents on a high-speed bullet train.

Appendix. Opium War

The international incident that most affected the Empire of Japan was the Opium War (1840-1842) between China (the Qing Dynasty) and the U.K.  

At the time, Japan was under the Tokugawa samurai regime and not yet to open the country fully to the world.  The Japanese people then regraded Qing as the great military power.  But, they saw Chinese and Manchu troops were overwhelmed by U.K. fleets and troops.  It was a great shock to the elite samurai.  They understood superiority of Western weapons and technology.  Accordingly, samurai Japan gradually started to change its policy to open the country to fully import advanced Western products, including arms and related systems.  

By the 1830s, crime had become widespread in the nation as its men, in particular, sought out the drug. Families starved when their providers fell victim to addiction. In response, the Chinese government banned the use and importation of opium. 
This ban angered the British, who believed they already had a trade imbalance with China. The Chinese exported much tea to Great Britain and America, so the British wanted China to buy their opium in return. When China refused to allow opium imports, the British declared war and sailed their military fleet to Canton, arriving in June of 1840. 
Thus began the first of two "Opium Wars," known in Great Britain as "The War for Free Trade." The conflicts occurred from 1839 through 1842 and again from 1856 to 1860. When the wars ended, the combination of peasant rebellion and British military might had brought China to its knees.
So, samurai forces in Japan started to change themselves to modern or European-style military machine in the late 19th century to be one of the five great military powers in the world in half a century.

"a man, named Matthew" - Why and Who Did 9/11?

Around Tokyo...
Around Tokyo...
In Tokyo...

Why and Who Did it? (Pourquoi et pour qui il l'a fait?)

If American consumers buy many goods and commodities in Wal-Mart or so on, Chinese exporters are happy to earn a large sum of dollars.  Then Chinese companies will buy machine, technologies, and so on from Japan (if not stealing).  So, Japanese companies get happy, too. 

But, who would hire American consumers?  FRB?

SECTION I: Reasons for WTC to have been Targeted

Some Americans just wondered why the Islamic terrorists had targeted the World Trade Center in New York on September 11, 2001. 
Why did the terrorists attack the World Trade Center?  
The attack on the world trade center (as well as the other attacks on that day) were symbolic acts on symbolic targets, intended (so it seems) more as an attack on the American self-image than to kill large numbers of Americans. had they been interested in body counts, they could have easily quadrupled the number of deaths in the WTC by attacking later in the day, and could have chosen far more populated targets than the pentagon and white house. plus, note the symbolism of scheduling the attacks on 9/11 - 911, the number to dial in an emergency. As a symbolic act it was incredibly effective, prompting a radical and aggressive shift in American foreign policy which has damaged our international reputation, involved us in two largely fruitless wars, and has nearly driven the entire US into bankruptcy.
because the terrorists blamed USA for some reason
Yet, more effective, instructive, and useful answer is this: It is because it is a war in capitalism.  It is not a war for religion.  It is a war on big and huge money, rather.  So, the symbol, namely WTC, American elite workers in the financial sector love so much must be demolished. 

If it had been a pure act of religion or a part of any serious religious war, they would not have even thought about the existence of the World Trade Center.  It is not religious but capitalistic.

AlQaeda used four passenger jet planes.  But how did they assign each to each target?  Had it been for a religious purpose, two of them should have been directed to the Capitol.  The most religious building in Washington DC is the Capitol where the Bible is used as a legal instrument to admit Congressmen, Senators, and so on in a virtually religious ceremony.  And one other for Pentagon, as it was.  And the rest for New York as a disturbing operation.  But, they sent two of the four to the single non-religious target, WTC.  It was not at least religious.  It was rather capitalistic.  Or some big or huge money must have been included in major factors that caused the 9/11 Terror rather than any spiritual and religious issues.

Accordingly, President Mr. W. Bush sent richly armed troops to Iraq and Afghanistan but not humble Christian missionaries in a large scale.

Indeed, some U.S. citizens flatly said after 9/11, "They attacked America, since they envied rich and prosperous America!"  Truly, envy is a major driving factor in capitalism.   In fact, ordinary Americans do not think, "They attacked America, since they envied very pious Christian America!" 

To make a long discussion short, as long as the U.S. is a champion in capitalism, it cannot completely solve a terror problem targeted to the U.S. by envying terrorists who belong to a sphere of violent capitalism rather than peaceful Islam.

To make a long conclusion very short, the solution is for America to become more Christian than capitalistic.  If the Taliban, for example, think that Americans are all as poor as they are because of Christianity, they will not join any terrorists planning to attack America to make Americans further poorer.

Appendix. The London Naval Treaty

Through the Great Depression, naval disarmament negotiations were pursued by major players at the time.
The London Naval Treaty was an agreement between the United Kingdom, the Empire of Japan, France, Italy and the United States, signed on April 22, 1930, which regulated submarine warfare and limited naval shipbuilding.... 
The Treaty also established a distinction between cruisers armed with guns no greater than 6.1 inches (155mm) calibre ("light cruisers" in unofficial parlance), from those with guns up to 8 inches (203 mm) calibre ("heavy cruisers"). The number of heavy cruisers was limited - the US were permitted 18 with a total tonnage of 180,000, the British 15 totalling 147,000 and the Japanese 12 totalling 108,000 tons. For the light cruisers no numbers were specified but tonnage limits were 143,500 tons for the US, 192,200 tons for the British and 100,450 tons for the Japanese.

The most important result of this negotiation for the Empire of Japan is that the U.S., the U.K., and other participants agreed that the empire could have naval power equal to 69.75% of that of the U.S. and the U.K.  As the U.S. and the U.K. had to deploy their fleets not only in the Pacific Ocean but also in the Indian Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Ocean, and other seas near their colonies, the Imperial Navy of Japan could keep superiority in the Pacific Ocean.

However, it did not mean that GDP of the Empire of Japan at the time corresponded to 69.75% of the American GDP.

But, it tells how difficult for a non-European/American nation to have coped with Western powers at the time (namely before WWII), since major European nations and the U.S. colonized almost all of the world except the Empire of Japan and some lucky countries.

Anyway, the Empire of Japan accepted and observed the Naval Treaty.  For example, the Imperial Navy altered its battle cruiser Hiei to training battle ship by changing its equipment.

After Pearl Habor, Hiei returned to the line of battle, though it was lost after the Battle of the Solomons in 1942 where it was hit by, but withstood a bombardment of, 80 shells. 

Anyway you cannot negotiate a disarmament treaty with terrorists which the Empire of Japan was not.

Mat 9:9 And as Jesus passed forth from thence, he saw a man, named Matthew, sitting at the receipt of custom: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.

"Jesus only with themselves" - Discharged Radioactive Material

Buddhist Temple...
Bell Tower...(click to enlarge.)

Discharged Radioactive Material (Libéré de matières radioactives)

In 2007, Japanese scientists of RIKEN and the University of Tokyo discovered for the first time in history that thunder clouds work as a particle accelerator as they detected gamma rays from thunder clouds that were generated in a poor-weather coastal area of the Sea of Japan in winter.  However intensity of this gamma ray observed in their thunder clouds is 200 million times smaller that that of a chest X-ray.

In addition, a gamma ray is used for sterilization of medical devices, since the ray is light (electromagnetic waves) with higher energy.  And it is one of components of radiation doses released from a crippled reactor.

SECTION I: Tokyo Radiation Dose Data

Let's confirm correct data on radiations doses measured at Shinjuku in Tokyo between March to May.

It settled at less than 0.1 micro Sieverts per hour since April (actually around 0.05).  It is equal to less than 0.9 mili Sieverts per year while an international standard is 1 mili Sieverts per year for ordinary environment.  According to WHO, an ordinary person receves 3 mili Sieverts of doses per year from natural sources of radioactivity in the world.  So, Tokyo is as safe as New York and London interns of radioactivity levels.

SECTION II: Fukushima-Daiichi Adjacent Community Dose Data

It is not so low.  It is over a safety limit the Japanese Government sets at 20 mili Sieverts per year.
In the above figure, pink is for Iidate Village, blue for Fukushima City, and green for Minami-Soma City.  The unit is micro Sieverts.  The doses in Iidate Village was still 3 micro Sieverts even in August.  It is equal to more than 25 mili Sieverts per year, while an international criterion for accepted doses is 20 mili Sieverts per year.  Nonetheless, it is reported that a higher level of radioactivity, say 10 or 50 micro Sierverts per hour or 100 to 500 mili Sieverts per year,  is measured at many hot spots around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, especially in fields.

Accordingly, all the agricultural activities in the village are stopped following instructions of the Japanese Government. Every type of agricultural products produced in Fukushima Prefecture and other neighboring regions are monitored and checked to assess a radiation level.  No contaminated agricultural products are allowed to be delivered to market.  Japan never exports contaminated agricultural products to the world.

SECTION III: Discharged Radioactive Material from Fukushima Daiichi 

Note that "the becquerel (symbol Bq) is the SI-derived unit of radioactivity. One Bq is defined as the activity of a quantity of radioactive material in which one nucleus decays per second." ( 
To the air:
During the first 10 days when explosions occurred - 2.32 x 10^18 Bq
From March 23 to July 11 - 0.83 x 10^17 Bq 
As contaminated water:
All the period - 7.7 x 10^17 Bq  
Total 3.17 x 10^18 Becquerel 
For reference, it is estimated that 10^18 Bq radioactive material was released in the 1986 Chernobyl accident.

Appendix. Battle in the Indian Ocean in 1942 

In April 1942, the Imperial Navy of Japan overwhelmed the British, Australian, and Dutch Navies in the Indian Ocean.
The Indian Ocean raid was a naval sortie by the Fast Carrier Strike Force of the Imperial Japanese Navy from 31 March - 10 April 1942 against Allied shipping and bases in the Indian Ocean. It was an early engagement of the Pacific campaign of World War II. The Japanese under Chuichi Nagumo compelled the Allied (largely Royal Navy) forces to retreat to East Africa, leaving the Japanese unopposed in the Indian Ocean. 
Imperial Navy: 
6 carriers; 4 battleships; 7 cruisers; 19 destroyers; 5 submarines; 350 aircraft 
Britsih/Australian/Dutch Navies 
3 carriers; 5 battleships; 7 cruisers; 15 destroyers; 100+ aircraft; 30 smaller warships; 50+ merchant ships

The purpose for this naval operations is for the Empire of Japan to secure its occupation of crude oil fields in Indonesia and other regions with natural resources, since the U.S. had imposed economic embargo against the Empire months before Pearl Harbor in 1941.

 (At the time the Empire imported 70% or more crude oil from the U.S.  Before the Imperial fleets depleted and lost their fuel, the Empire had to take some action to get crude oil somewhere else.  It was Indonesia under colonial rule of the Netherlands that had oil fields.  And, the British forces around Singapore and the U.S. fleets in Pearl Harbor were major obstacles for the Japanese Empire that were being driven to the corner.  So, the U.S. and the U.K. knew before Pearl Harbor that the Empire would move to the south, specifically to Indonesia, for crude oil sooner or later with its naval forces.)

Essentially, the Navy of the Empire of Japan before WWII was operated and maintained according to an idea that their fleets would wait and encounter advancing U.S. fleets near the Japanese Archipelago in case.  It planned to follow the success of the great naval battle around the Tsushima Islands in the Sea of Japan against the Russian Navy in 1905.  The Imperial Navy and  Army had from the beginning no idea to advance, invade, and occupy Hawaii, California, or any part of the U.S., though they took the U.S. colonized Philippines and some islands in the Aleutian Islands.

So, there was a great inconsistency in the military operation of the Empire against the U.S., since the Empire had basically no plan to occupy any part of the U.S.  But, one thing clear is that they needed crude oil in Indonesia.  Accordingly, as the U.S. tried to stop the Empire from obtaining crude oil, U.S. Naval fleets in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, must have been destroyed to any degree, which was of course an act of unreasonableness.


Mar 9:8 And suddenly, when they had looked round about, they saw no man any more, save Jesus only with themselves.
Mar 9:9 And as they came down from the mountain, he charged them that they should tell no man what things they had seen, till the Son of man were risen from the dead.

"hear him" - New News and Old News

In Tokyo...
A Venerable Buddhist Temple... 

New News and Old News (nouvelles nouvelles et les anciennes nouvelles)

There are 15 nuclear reactors in four nuclear power generation plants on the coast line of the northeast part of Honshu Island of Japan facing the North Pacific Ocean.

Or there are 15 nuclear power plants northeast of Tokyo on the Pacific Coast areas in the main island of Japan.  But, only four nuclear reactors in the Fukushima Daiichi plant failed.  Especially three reactors of the Onagawa plant situated closer to the epicenter of the M9.0 earthquake, which occurred on March 11, in the Pacific Ocean could stand even a 15-meter high  tsunami.  Four reactors of the Fukushima Daini plant situated near Fukushima Daiichi could survive the earthquake and the tsunami, too.

In general, Japanese nuclear reactors are robust to natural disasters.  Specifically, Japanese-designed nuclear reactors are robust even against the greatest natural disaster that could happen once in 1000 years.   Only unlucky four reactors in the Fukushima Daiichi plant (some of which were designed by U.S. GE) lost emergency power generators due to a 15-meter high tsunami for some errors and omissions of the power company and a government regulation body.

By the way, Toshiba, one of major makers in the Japanese nuclear industry, is reportedly said to increase its share in U.S. Westinghouse, a nuclear power engineering company, from 67% to 87%.   It might reflect some truth and reality of the Fukushima Daiichi accident.

SECTION I: News of Today in Japan

1) Japan has now foreign currency reserves of $1.2 trillion.  Some Nobel-Prize-class American economists a few moths ago proudly said, "You know China has now $1 trillion cash!" though.  Indeed, till 2010 or so Japan was the largest holder of U.S. Treasury bonds for decades.  As long as  Nobel-Prize-class American economists continue to praise China, the American unemployment rate will stay around 9%.

2) Former Prime Minister of Japan Mr. Naoto Kan started his campaign to justify himself in terms of his handling of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident.  Mr. Kan told newspapers that he was right but the Tokyo Electric Power Company was wrong.  Bureaucrats did not transfer instructions and collect information on the situation in an efficient manner.  He blamed others and would not admit his responsibility.

3) According to a recent survey conducted by AP and GfK, Japanese respondents who like America account for 49%, Germany 48%, and South Korea 31%, while those who dislike North Korea 94%, China 76%, and Israel 44% and Russia 44%.  In addition, Japanese respondents who regard China as a threat to the world peace account for 73% and North Korea 80%.  Finally those who support Japanese commercial whaling account for 52%, but those who want to eat whale meat for themselves account for just 33% of all the respondents.

SECTION II: An Article in Today's Japanese Newspaper

A certain newspaper reported today that thousands of Pakistanis have been arrested, detained, and probably sent to U.S. facilities, such as those in Guantanamo, or executed after the 9/11 Terror. 

The U.S. Government forced the Pakistani Government to take the side of America or that of AlQaeda or the Taliban in the wake of the 9/11 Terror.   So, the Pakistani Government joined the U.S. in the War on Terror.  Then, the Pakistani police and  officers started to arrest many innocent Pakistani citizens to hand them over to American agents or authorities in return for some money.

Today, even after Osama bin Laden was taken on by American commandos, the situation of families of missing Pakistanis in the above context has not been improved.  In other word, a happy and peaceful life of every American citizen is made possible with this sacrifice of pious Muslims in Pakistan.

Incidentally, due to hard work of a certain body of those families and the supreme court of Pakistan, some 400 Pakistani citizens were allowed to return to their families from prisons in these five years.   But, it is said that most of them are suffering the aftereffects of physical and psychological abuse they experienced in prisons.

Allah will, I am afraid, turn a judging eye to some Americans and Pakistanis.

The Greater East Asia Conference, an international summit hosted by the Empire of Japan, was held in Tokyo in  November 1943.

The Conference was intended by the Imperial Government of Japan to get support from other Asian nations and thus justify its military presence in East Asia after the Pearl Harbor attack.  However, the main reason for Japanese occupation of European colonies in East Asia was to get crude oil and other natural resources the Empire could not import any longer from the U.S.  Anyway, the Conference was held with participants from Manchukuo, part of China, Burma, Free India, the Philippines, and Thailand.
It is a kind of logical consequences of the Empire's exercising military power which had strength to drive out any Western powers from Asia, except the U.S.  And as the history proved, Asian peoples started to fight for their independence after WWII.  Maybe, the Vietnam War was the last one of such movements since the U.S. took the helm in South Vietnam after France was defeated and left Indochina in 1954.

So, one significant historical question is who gave courage to Asian peoples who started to fight for their independence from the U.K., France, the Netherlands, and the U.S. after WWII.  The Empire of Japan or the U.S.?

"healing every where" - Japan-US War

Venerable Buddhist Temple in Tokyo  (click to enlarge)
Guardian Deity of Children

Japan-US War (la guerre américano-japonaise)

Japan was hit by an M9.0 earthquake and 15-meter high tsunamis along northeast coast lines of Honshu Island in March.  Then, in the past week, a big typhoon destroyed many local communities in the Kii Peninsula of west Japan, taking scores of lives.

The U.S. also suffered a rare earthquake around Washington DC, big floods along the Mississippi River, and then Hurricane Irene on the East Coast.  

It looks like that the God is telling us that He is fair to both the countries even in the worst context.  It does especially so, since the Second Coming of Christ must have already started around 2010 (= 1260 + 750 ).  (Refer to

SECTION I: The Century of Wars

It is true that it was not so easy for the Empire of Japan to surrender to the United States in August 1945 before the Empire knew that the U.S. had already developed atomic bombs and used them in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
The Potsdam Declaration or the Proclamation Defining Terms for Japanese Surrender is a statement calling for the Surrender of Japan in World War II. On July 26, 1945, United States President Harry S. Truman,United Kingdom Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and Chairman of the Nationalist Government of China Chiang Kai-shek issued the document, which outlined the terms of surrender for the Empire of Japan as agreed upon at the Potsdam Conference. This ultimatum stated that, if Japan did not surrender, it would face "prompt and utter destruction."... 
The only mention of "unconditional surrender" came at the end of the declaration:
"We call upon the government of Japan to proclaim now the unconditional surrender of all Japanese armed forces, and to provide proper and adequate assurances of their good faith in such action. The alternative for Japan is prompt and utter destruction." Contrary to what had been intended at its conception, the declaration made no mention of the Emperor at all. Allied intentions on issues of utmost importance to the Japanese, including whether Hirohito was to be regarded as one of those who had "misled the people of Japan" or even a war criminal, or alternatively whether the Emperor might potentially become part of a "peacefully inclined and responsible government" were thus left unstated.

The key point of discussions among the elite of the Empire of Japan in the summer of 1945 was whether the Emperor could be protected and free from possible punishment by the U.S. on the Imperial Army and Navy or the Imperial government.  "Will America try to abolish the imperial family if we surrender?" is the most important question for generals and politicians of the Empire who were forced to decide surrender or battles on Japanese proper (mainland Japan).   

However, the fact that America had developed and used atomic bombs as well as some profound implications in the Potsdam Declaration led to decision of unconditional surrender of the Imperial  military.  Most of the then Japanese leaders and elite thought that the Potsdam Declaration implied that the imperial family would be allowed to continue to preside in the nation of Japan.  Accordingly, Showa Emperor  himself announced to the nation through radio broadcasting that the Empire would surrender on August 15, 1945.

Yet, from the beginning there was a question as to whether or not President Roosevelt thought that the Empire of Japan would never venture into war with the United States no matter how much the U.S. took a tough stance against the Empire having been engaged in war in the Chinese continent for some years.  As the Empire did not withdraw its troops from China, the U.S. government froze Japanese assets in America and stopped export of crude oil to Japan.  The U.S. was taking a hostile policy to the Empire while the Empire tried to maintain friendly relationship with the U.S.  

Did Roosevelt really think that he had to make the Empire start war with America, since the U.S. needed to join the U.K. in the war against Nazi Germany, while Nazi Germany forged a military alliance with the Empire of Japan, though the German Government had provided military support for China in 1930's?  The elite of the Empire of Japan knew that America's GDP was ten times and more larger than the Empire's; there was no chance for the Empire to win a possible war against the U.S.  But, the Roosevelt Administration increased economic and political pressure on Japan through 1940 and  1941 till the Pearl Harbor Attack.

It is said that there were some leaders in the U.S. at the time who did not think that the Empire of Japan would militarily challenge the U.S., since the gap in industrial power  between the two countries was so large at the time.  If President Roosevelt had shared the same view with such an American elite, how would the Roosevelt Administration have joined the U.K. for the war against Hitler?   Only if the Empire of Japan had started war against the U.S., the U.S. could declare war against the Empire's ally Germany in addition to the Empire of Japan.

On August 28, 1941, Japanese Ambassador to the U.S. Kichisaburo Nomura handed a message from Japanese Prime Minister Fumimaro Konoe to President Roosevelt, since Konoe wanted a summit meeting with Roosevelt to avoid a possible war between the two countries.  The president praised contents of the letter and virtually agreed to hold a summit meeting with Konoe.  But, Secretary of State Cordell Hull was reluctant to support the idea of the Japan-America summit meeting to avoid a possible war between the U.S. and the Empire of Japan.  As days went by, Roosevelt also became reluctant to meet Japanese P.M. Konoe.  On October 2, 1941, the U.S. State Department informed Tokyo that the U.S. Government would reject the proposal for the summit meeting of the U.S. president and the Japanese prime minister.  Accordingly, on October  18, 1941, Konoe resigned as prime minister.  Though Konoe was a politician from a noble family, the one who succeeded Konoe was a career military man, Army General Hideki Tojo.  And, actually Tojo ordered, authorized, or (most probably reluctantly) consented to carry out the Pearl Harbor attack in Hawaii, the U.S., on December 8, 1941 (JAPAN TIME).

Soong May-ling, wife of Chinese President Chiang Kai-shek, and Anna Eleanor Roosevelt in 1943

At the time, the American public was very reluctant to join the U.K. in the war against Nazi Germany.  Hitler was also careful not to invite the U.S. into the European theater of WWII.  But, the English, Judaists and Russians as well as Chinese were desperately hoping for American's engagement in wars against Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan.  So, spies in Washington DC were deeply penetrating into the U.S. Government.  Under their influence, it is apparent that some key officials in the Roosevelt Administration got determined to drive the Empire of Japan into the corner.  If the Empire had not been able to import crude oil from the U.S., it would take by force oil fields in Indonesia having been colonized by the Netherlands; then inevitably a war would start for the Empire with the Netherlands, the U.K. and eventually the U.S.  So, the English, Judaists and Russian communists as well as the Chinese elite all wanted the U.S. to drive the Empire of Japan into the corner and finally into war, even months before Pearl Harbor. 

But, was it so easy and safe to manipulate the Empire of Japan in 1941 based on the assumption that the U.K. and the U.S. would be able to crush the Imperial troops, fleets, and air squadrons in months so easily?

I happened to watch a Japanese cable TV program of a dialogue between Mr. Susumu Nishibe, an ex-professor of the University of Tokyo, and Mr. Makoto Sataka, a leftist critic.

Mr. Nishibe said, "Though I am older than the Beatles generation, I am interested in that three of the four Beatles are originally from Ireland.  It is a big success story for them to be rewarded a British decoration, since Ireland was once colonized by the U.K."

So, their songs might sound as if based on Catholic passion.

Anyway, Mr. Nishibe does not respect European and American rich men, as he is now very conservative and patriotic, though he was once an anti-Japan-U.S. security alliance (namely anti-establishment) student around 1960.   No matter how intellectual a Japanese might be, he could be patriotic and anti-European/American if he does not fully study Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.  Yet, an intellectual elite like Mr. Nishibe is a minority in the Japanese society.

"whosoever will not receive you" - 9/11 Anniversary

The Imperial Buddhist Temple...
Originally Built around Tokyo in the 8th Century...

9/11 Anniversary (11 Septembre anniversaire)

It is reported by a Japanese blogger that the Gaddafi regime executed unlawfully 60,000 political detainees around Tripoli.

But, bodies of only 10,000 were identified and found in some wild burial places.

Yet, it is said that the Kim Jong-Il regime of North Korea neglected starving citizens in 1990s.  Those who were starved to death in North Korea in 1990s are estimated to have been three million in number.  As they were so hungry, it is said, those poor North Koreans could not even rebel against their leader.

Libya is a rich country, relatively, in this context.

SECTION I: From 1997 to 2001

Now, the season to remember the 9/11 Attacks has come.

Yet.  you have to remember also the 1997 Princess Diana's death in Paris to fully understand what induced the 9/11 Attacks on Washington DC and New York.

There are many people in the world whose nations were once colonized by the U.K.  For example, from the U.S. to Singapore and Myanmar to India, the Britons were once their colonial master.

But, Japan is not.  The U.K. has never colonized Japan.  Japan has no colonial masters.  From ancient days, Koreans, Chinese, Mongols, Europeans, and Americans have never colonized Japan. Text books of history used in the world must clearly state this fact.  Indeed, it is deplorable that Asians, Africans, and Latin Americans do not know that Japan has never been colonized by Western powers.  That is why Japan has duty to handle the U.K. fairly to correct Britons.

Anyway, check how AlQaeda brought fear to the world:

It is after the death of Princess Diana in Paris in 1997 that Osama bin Laden started full-scale attacks on the U.S. and its allies.

The death of  Princess Diana in Paris in 1997 indicated a grave degree of corruption of the British upper class, the American elite politicians, and associated Arab super-rich men and leaders.  As they were so rotten in terms of justice and religion, Osama bin Laden could proudly and easily find a reason to intensify his activities and get his followers to be assigned to suicide attacks.   And his second in command, an Egyptian, might have been more convinced that his war against Christians was right since some British upper-class members seemed to have killed Princess Diana with her Egyptian boyfriend in Paris in 1997.  

Indeed, in early 1998, Osama bin Laden accepted an interview by an American media company.  It is as if he had got some idea from Princess Diana's case of 1997...

It should be also noted that John F. Kennedy, Jr. and his wife were  killed when their private plane crashed off the coast of Martha's Vineyard in July 1999.

The two tragic incidents must have however impressed Osama bin Laden as nature of the British/American civilization: conspiracies everywhere.  He must have lost respect for the U.K. and the U.S.  It must have given Osama bin Laden a sense of superiority since he thought that he was a pious Muslim.  At least psychologically, the two tragic incidents involving Princess Diana and JFK Jr. must have led Osama bin Laden to taking a bolder plan in his war against the U.S. and the U.K.  So, the 9/11 attack plan must have been welcomed by him.

Once when Japan was directly governed by the imperial court, some emperors of Japan respected Buddhism so much.

So, they decided to build a national Buddhist temple (called Kokubuji) in each state within the empire.  At the time, namely in the 8th century, Tokyo belonged to a state called Musashi.  And, the Musashi Kokubuji (national temple) was built in today's Kokubuji City of Tokyo Prefecture.  The temple had a seven-story pagoda in addition to other sacred buildings.

Yet, today, there are no original buildings at the site, though some temples take the place which were built during a samurai era of Japan.

(Something not British...

Throwing Dirt at British People

 Around Tokyo...

When a leading Japanese pilot found, on December 8, 1941 (JAPAN TIME), that their raid on Pearl Harbor could be successful as they entered the sky above the U.S. Naval fleet, he transmitted a signal, "Tora, Tora, Tora," though radio communications had been banned in their aircraft-carrier centered fleet all the way from Japan...

Throwing Dirt at British People (Lancer Dirt au peuple britannique)

You shall not murder.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
 - By God through Moses

But, there is one anti-Christ royal family on the earth.

From New York Times: 
        'Other Woman' In Royal Affair Plans Divorce
By JOHN DARNTONPublished: January 11, 1995
The woman widely believed to have been the mistress of Prince Charles on and off for nearly 25 years is to be divorced from her husband, the couple's lawyers announced today.The news of the impending divorce of Camilla Parker Bowles and her husband, Andrew, immediately set off a blast of speculation in newspapers and radio and television that the next step, if romance is to follow logic, would be for the heir to the British throne to divorce Diana, the Princess of Wales, from whom he separated in December 1992...   
Even if the 46-year-old Prince were to become single, the chances of his marrying Camilla Parker Bowles, 47, are not at all clear... 
Royal Family, Stung by Critics, Responds to a Grieving Nation
By WARREN HOGEPublished: September 04, 1997 
Breaking its silence on the astonishing outpouring of grief over the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, the British royal family said today that it was ''deeply touched and enormously grateful.''...
In a statement on a day when it was forced to amplify plans for Saturday's funeral to meet a new estimate of two million mourners, Buckingham Palace said...
As Britons continued to demonstrate unaccustomedly raw emotion, there had been some criticism of the royal family for keeping such a tight rein on its feelings. ''If only the royals dared weep with the people,'' ran the headline over this morning's editorial in The Independent...  

From BBC:  

27 April 2011 Last updated at 10:10 GMT  
The singer and songwriter Morrissey has told the BBC he believes the Royal family are benefit scroungers who do not speak for England.  
Reporting on BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast, Colin Paterson said the former lead singer of The Smiths called the future Mrs Windsor 'Kate Muddleton'. 
"Why would I watch the wedding?" Morrissey asked. "I do seriously believe that they are benefit scroungers, nothing else."

From The Telegraph:
BBC promotes rapper who claims the Royal Family killed Diana  
By Chris Hastings and Gary Anderson12:01AM BST 04 Apr 2004  
The BBC has been condemned for broadcasting a song that compares the Queen to Saddam Hussein and accuses the Royal Family of murdering Diana, Princess of Wales…  
The track saves its most damning criticism, however, for the Royal Family, which it accuses of carrying out thefts and killings. "Slavery made the riches of Great Britain, the Queen wears stolen diamonds, her husband's a Freemason, they Killed Lady Di," the record states.  
It goes on: "The Queen lives in a house like Saddam Hussein. They're both rich so I guess they are both one and the same."

From Channel 4:

          Prince Andrew: ‘Cheerleader in chief for the arms industry’ 
Thursday 10 March 2011  
As Prince Andrew is reported to have met the Queen to discuss criticism of his trade role, Campaign Against the Arms Trade tell Channel 4 News: "He is cheerleader in chief for the arms industry."…  
There were also reports in Thursday's papers linking the Prince to the potential sale of Eurofighter Typhoons to Indonesia, a country which was banned from buying British arms 12 years ago after allegations the British-built jets were used to bomb civilians.

From Forbes:
Paul Johnson, AUTHOR 
The Corruption of Britain 
説明:説明: politicians, in dealing with Britain and continental Europe, have been accustomed to drawing a distinction symbolized by the English Channel: In Britain they found politics to be honest; on the Continent a varying level of corruption was endemic, with it being less pronounced in Scandinavia and the Netherlands, more so in France and Spain and the most in Italy and Greece.  
This distinction no longer applies, and it is a point President Obama should note. British politics are becoming corrupt…

In this context, the Imperial Family of Japan and the Japanese politics are far better than UK's.

On 10 December 1941 air squadrons of the Imperial Navy of Japan attacked and sank UK battle ship Prince of Wales and cruiser Repulse off the Malay Peninsula in the South China Sea. 
Prince of Wales and Repulse were the first capital ships to be sunk solely by air power on the open sea (albeit by land-based rather than carrier-based aircraft), a harbinger of the diminishing role this class of ships was subsequently to play in naval warfare. 

In this way, the British fleet in East Asia was destroyed by the Imperial Navy of Japan in WWII.  This incident led to independence of South East Asian nations after WWII in addition to India's independence.
