Resolved Question: Is Shinzo Abe going to
Abe & Hitler share many qualities.
1. Both believe their countries were bullied by the victors & deny accountability (Hitler believed Germany lost WWI because of the Jews while Abe denounced the charges of Japan's war crimes & use of comfort women as false & mere slander).
2. Both have extreme right-wing parties that share the same views (Hitler had the Nazis while Abe had the LDP).
3. Both want to heavily militarize their country.
4. Both keep provoking neighboring countries to attack (Hitler kept taking "just one more territory" while Abe loves denying Japan's war crimes at EVERY opportunity & honors war criminals).
5. Both were successful at raising their countries' economies.
Most damning, Japan's government up till this day refuses to acknowledge or apologize for its barbaric past, and Abe was elected to be PM TWICE despite his clear favoritism of militarization & wartime bloodlust.
Should the rest of the civilized world start preparing nukes (just to be clear, the Japanese government joined WWII without its people's clear knowledge & consent)?
