TokyoFreePress Gets Plugged on Forbes.com
On the eve of yet another rigged election for the House of Representatives, Gordon G. Chang, my long-time mentor, contributed a piece entitled Alliance in Peril to Forbes.com., in which TokyoFreePress gets plugged, though briefly.
In the fall of 2005, the LDP won a landslide victory. That means this time around it's DPJ's turn to win. You don't even have to look at the results tomorrow evening. This is just a ritual. Nothing will change. So the American people don't have to worry too much that the strategic alliance between Japan and the U.S. can be endangered if the DPJ captures power as was predetermined.
I have difficulty understanding why so many Americans think they should still uphold the obsolete arrangement signed by U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower and an undercover CIA agent Nobusuke Kishi a little before the Berlin Wall was erected. This is where Gordon and I have been divided over the issue with the security treaty.
However, I really felt grateful and honored to be quoted on Forbes despite the perception gap between us because this will certainly boost TokyoFreePress's exposure to the American people.
Don't take me wrong - as I told him a couple of days ago, I would have nothing against an ad hoc alliance to flexibly deal with a specific situation. What I find outrageous is the "Till death do us part" sort of mindset.
Once again let me express heartfelt thanks, Gordon.
