Dive In

 

In Nato, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy take part in nuclear sharing, hosting American nuclear weapons. We need to understand how security is maintained around the world and not consider it taboo to have an open discussion. We should firmly consider various options when we talk about how we can protect Japan and the lives of its people in this reality.

That’s former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe calling on Japan to reconsider its stringent post-WWII policy which bans possessing or producing nuclear weapons. The remarks from the still influential leader immediately provoked a strong response from Beijing which said, “We strongly ask Japan to deeply reflect on its history, be cautious in words and deeds on the Taiwan issue to stop provoking trouble.” Call it the Putin effect.
