So it is imperative that Washington join the international community in condemning Abes wrongdoing and preventing Japan from falling down the abyss of self-destruction again.More importantly, it needs to reconsider its Japan policy, which has for years featured unprincipled support for an undisciplined ally at the cost of the overall interests of both itself and the region.That is unsustainable. During his upcoming visit, Obama should send a clear message to Tokyo that the United States is no spoiler of repeated troublemakers and that Japan must learn and behave.8.03KRelated StoriesJapan PM sends offering to Yasukuni ShrineJapan minister at shrine honoring war criminalsS.
