 a move they fear could provoke South Korea and China, both of which suffered from Japan's wartime militarism.

And these are "scholars"? Both South and North Korea were part of the Japanese Empire from 1910 to 1945. Koreans as Imperial Japanese soldiers invaded other Asian countries. South Korea is not anywhere close to being a WWII victim as China is.

That’s like saying Taiwan was a part of the Japanese empire so the Taiwanese invaded Pearl Harbor.

Taiwanese don't pretend to having been "invaded" by Japan or brutalized on a par with other Asian nations. And they aren't running an global propaganda offensive to fool the world that they were simply "victims. Furthermore no Taiwanese were charged as War Criminals, unlike Koreans.

Japan will not turn into an Imperial Japan once it jettisons its 'Colonizer Constitution ' written not by Japanese but by the invaders.

If Abe rewrites the Nippon Constitution the modern pacifist Japan will remain what it's now.

The virtual colonizer Amerikano always bringing the China and Korean factor to such an equation is half self serving and half dim witted to say the least.

Of course it's but natural for Japanese to change that fake sneak attack flavored colonizer constitution!

Look up everything I wrote. It's true. There are true scholars and those who express views to support their income and livlihoods. There are a few South Korean scholars who have been persecuted as a result.
