The Guardian reported that China had reacted angrily to calls by Japan’s former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for Tokyo to consider hosting U.S. nuclear weapons. However, a famous Chinese commentator analyzes that China has made a mistake.
According to Wang Wenbin, China Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, Japanese politicians have made false remarks that violate the nation’s three non-nuclear principles. He said that Japan should deeply reflect on its history and “be cautious in words and deeds on the Taiwan issue to stop provoking trouble.”
However, according to Jiang Feng, a well-known Chinese commentator on Youtube, it shows the ignorance of the Chinese if they believe Japan is afraid of the nuclear bomb.
He said Japan would react opposite to what China thought.
Jie Feng said that Japan has a strong survival instinct and remarkable resilience. He said that, in Yokosuka, the U.S. forced the Japanese to sign its first unequal treaty for U.S. shipments to enter Japan. According to Jie Feng, Ito Hirobumi, a Japanese politician, wrote an inscription thanking the American warships for coming.
Jie Feng said this was contrary to Chinese expectations as Japan would join AUKUS. That’s not an ordinary military alliance; it’s a nuclear power alliance between the UK, Australia, the U.S., and now Japan.
Regarding nuclear plant capacity, as reported by Statistica, the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power facility in Japan is the world’s largest nuclear power plant as of 2022. Its capacity is 7,965 megawatts.
Fukushima Dani II is the second-largest nuclear power plant globally, with 4,400 megawatts.
Meanwhile, the largest Chinese nuclear power plant’s capacity is around 4,100 megawatts.
According to Jiang Feng, the Chinese government has made a mistake as Japan has a powerful national mentality that transcends fear and inferiority.
