Hatoyama's Japan Abandoning U.S. For China, Seeks Asian Union

Yukio Hatoyama, a different kind of Japanese leader.
Too friendly towards Communist-ruled China.
Too hostile towards America.

Kind of like a Japanese Obama.

Story here.

I'd say that the most telling evidence of this guy's ideology is the following (emphasis mine):

Hatoyama blames America for the global economic crisis and says that the U.S. is responsible for “the destruction of human dignity.” He campaigned on protecting traditional Japanese economic activities and reducing U.S.-led globalization.

That sounds like a delusional propaganda utterance we'd hear from the likes of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez, etc. It wouldn't shock me to find out that he also blames the Jooooos for bad stuff. That's almost a foregone conclusion with respect to those who seem to be neo-communists. They blame America and the Jews (Israel) for everything, after all, while fully knowledgeable that the problems of America (ie. the mortgage crisis and subsequent recession) are largely actually the fault of neo-communist useful idiots (the Democratic Party et al), with low-profile facilitation from the Non-Free, Communist World.

An alarming statement coming from a man who's supposed to be an ally of the Free World, certainly of America.

More alarming for American policymakers, Hatoyama has authorized a wide-ranging review of the U.S. military presence on Japanese soil. He is reexamining the agreement that permits U.S. warships to dock at Japanese ports, and has said Japan should take a second look at why it is spending billions to house and transfer U.S. troops between its islands. Hatoyama has also moved to quickly end Japan’s fueling support for the U.S. naval anti-terrorism efforts in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

On Wednesday, an even bigger torpedo hit. Both U.S. and Japanese officials confirmed that discussions were underway to remove all U.S. fighter aircraft from Japan.

So many alarm bells have been clanging in Washington that the Australian reports the U.S. administration has requested “immediate clarifying discussions” on just how far Japan wants to take the disengagement. But there may not be too much America can do if Japan is intent on reducing America’s presence in Japanese territory. Regarding the U.S.-Japan security relationship, Richard Armitage, former U.S. deputy secretary of state, said: “If the government of Japan asked us to change things, we’d argue, we’d kick and scream, but ultimately we’d have to do it.”

That, coupled with Hatoyama's obvious tightness with China's Hu Jintao, is definitely cause for concern. It would be a dangerous turning point in history. Dangerous for the Free World. And Hatoyama is fine with that, preferring to put all his eggs in the Chinese Communist basket.

And the folks currently running America, they're the worst possible folks to be in power right now...

The thing we must understand is that if America is brought to its knees as the world turns against her, then the entire Free World will be in danger, as well as will be freedom, democracy, the rule of law and human rights worldwide.

The Obamacrat Regime's policy of dropping trou and bending over in submission to such international hostility is only going to make things worse.

A strong, patriotic American President and government are what are needed now. And the change in Congressional and Senate makeup in 2010 and in the White House in 2012 can't come too soon! Hell, maybe there can be an impeachment in 2011... it's not as if there's nothing damning to use to impeach the joker currently occupying the White House.

America doesn't have to apologize for who and what she is. If the other guys don't apologize for being infinitely worse, then why should she? It would be, and is, illogical for such an apology, and such an apology Obama delivers as often as he says "um", "uh", "er", etc...
