To Maintain Peace at Xmas
Empire Building South-East Asia
Japan's constitution and Article 9 guarantee for Pacifism died along with the death of Abe.
Death throes of an empire: nationalist spirit with advances in technology giving an edge relative to neighbouring states leads to feeling of superiority, dehumanizing other people as inferior. The ingredients for genocide and inhumane acts by a state. History repeating itself ... fascism. The fabric of a state and its culture falling outside the realm of multilateralism, going it alone. One can easily equate narrative of superiority with today's exceptionalism. All men (and women) are created equal and no false interpretation of a 250 year old constitution can change that. As the world burns and the glaciers melt.

Battle Over Solomon Islands
Australia `must ready Solomon Islands invasion' to stop China security deal | March 25, 2022 |
Australia must be willing to invade the Solomon Islands and topple its government if that's what is necessary to stop a proposed security pact between China and the Pacific nation going ahead, one commentator has argued.
David Llewellyn-Smith, founding publisher of MacroBusiness and former owner of leading Asia Pacific foreign affairs journal The Diplomat, says this is "Australia's Cuban missile crisis" and chillingly warns a Chinese naval base in the Solomons would be "the effective end of our sovereignty and democracy".
