Another Deep State operation emerges -- in Japan
publication date: May 5, 2010
When Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama's left-of-center Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) coalition government swept into office last year after decades of one-party rule by the conservative Liberal Democratic Party, the new government enjoyed 71 percent favorability in the polls. Popular support for Hatoyama has now sunk to 25 percent and a campaign funding scandal almost saw the indictment of Hatoyama. The DPJ Secretary General Ichiro Ozawa also faces an indictment over alleged violations between 2004 and 2007 of the Political Funds Control Law. Ozawa is the head of the government faction that wants the U.S. Futenma Marine Corps Air Station moved off of Okinawa. Ozawa is also the top target of the U.S.-Japanese "deep state" functionaries in Tokyo and the U.S. military-intelligence complex in Washington, particularly Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
WMR's sources in Japan report that Hatoyama was subjected to a full-scale barrage by Japan's American-installed "deep state," a contrivance that was imposed on Japan after World War II and seeks to maintain America's military presence in Japan and dominance over Japanese domestic affairs through what amounts to as a de facto "deep state" continuation of the U.S. military occupation government once headed up by General Douglas MacArthur.
Hatoyama had been trying to convince the Americans to vacate their military base at Futenma on Okinawa. The DPJ promised to re-negotiate a U.S.-Japanese agreement of the previous LDP government that would have seen the Futenma base move to Camp Schwab in northern Okinawa, away from populated centers. The Hatoyama government wanted the U.S. to move Futenma completely off of Okinawa, which has been plagued by cases of U.S. troops raping young women and underage Okinawan girls.
However, the Obama administration turned up the heat on Hatoyama by using Japan's "deep state" to destroy the DPJ government through psychological operations (psyops) using the media in Japan and the United States to report on allegations of corruption by Hatoyama and his government.
Today, Hatoyama finally succumbed to the deep state and announced that it was impossible for him to remove the U.S. base from Okinawa and he apologized to the people of Okinawa for not being able to "relieve the burden of Okinawa." Hatoyama conceded that he cannot order the removal of U.S. "deep state" occupation troops from Japanese soil, a virtual admission of the continued presence of the U.S. military occupation de facto government.
A series of Obama administration emissaries, including Assistant Secretary of State Kurt Campbell and principal deputy assistant secretary of defense for Asian and Pacific security affairs Derek Mitchell, as well as U.S. ambassador to Tokyo John Roos, put the full-court press on Hatoyama and his top Cabinet officials.
President Obama, who welcomed the previous right-wing LDP Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso to be his first guest at the White House, has given Hatoyama, a Socialist, the back of his hand. During the recent nuclear summit in Washington, Obama saw Hatoyama for only 10 minutes. By comparison, Chinese President Hu Jintao received a 90-minute meeting with Obama.
Hatoyama is not the first Japanese Prime Minister to be taken down by the Japanese-American "deep state." The American humiliation of Hatoyama is reminiscent of what happened to two independent-minded Japanese Prime Ministers, Kakuei Tanaka, Japan's Prime Minister from 1972 to 1974 was forced from office after he was tainted with bribes from Pentagon contractor giant Lockheed Corporation. Tanaka decided to adopt a more independent Japanese foreign policy, something that irritated Nixon's Secretary of State and national security adviser Henry Kissinger. The Lockheed bribes were intended to bring down Tanaka and the ploy succeeded. Kissinger resisted providing full details of the Lockheed bribes to the Japanese prosecutors investigating Tanaka lest the operations of the American-Japanese deep state were revealed.
Later, Prime Minister Noburo Takeshita, who also favored a more independent Japanese foreign policy from Washington, was forced from office in an insider trading and public corruption scandal, also brought about by the Japanese deep state.
One of our informed sources commented about the role of the deep state under America's global military tutelage: "What Japan and Germany are under is a perpetual occupation, having had the misfortune of being assigned American Consuls, Douglas MacArthur and John McCloy, a curious institution that hails back to the Roman occupation of those regions that had the courage to resist Roman imperialism. Iraq is the latest example of a American militarist occupation in perpetuity."
What America has imposed on Japan, Germany, Iraq, and Afghanistan are deep states that exist with the constant nurturing of the White House, Pentagon, State Department, and CIA. Prime Minister Hatoyama today became the latest victim of the deep state contrivance.
As with Thailand's pro-American Royal Family protecting the Thai deep state, the Japanese deep state reportedly enjoys the patronage of Crown Prince Naruhito. The crown princes of Thailand and Japan are extremely unpopular with a clear majority of their subjects.
