War hawks recently cast a cloud on politics of Japan. Tokyo Governor Shintaro Ishihara announced his resignation on Oct. 25 and declared to establish a new party to participate in election of the House of Representatives and return to the national politics. Japanese Foreign Minister Genba Koichiro recently went to Europe to spread the groundless propositions on the Diaoyu Islands issue, in attempt to contain China with other countries. Meanwhile, the Noda government frequently demonstrated the military strength to China to support its claim of "no concession" on the Diaoyu Islands issue.
Regardless of internal and external oppositions, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda sticks to his tough stance of "no concession", which is closely related to the rightism of the reshuffled Cabinet. It is manifested by the fact that Noda appointed Seiji Maehara, who was called "super war hawk" by U.S. media, as "national policy minister." Thus, Noda and Maehara, two right-wing war hawks, have the decision-making power of Japan's internal and external strategies. The "hawkish politics" dominates Japan.
