Japanese military drill nothing but 'empty talk' (2)

Secondly, it may be a psychological deterrence against China. Using the war game simulation, Japan attempts to intimidate and put psychological pressure on Chinese military so that it can win the peace negotiations and reach an effect of winning without a fight.

Thirdly, it may increase the public support rate for Japanese government. At present, the support rate for Yoshihiko Noda has fallen to 18 percent and his administration is difficult to maintain. Admittedly, a high-profile spread of the news will stimulate the nerve of disappointed and depressed people and reshape their confidence in the government.

It is not difficult to find from Japan's military actions that the statement of "Japan will surely win the war" exposed the inner unrest and feeling of failure of Japan. All the clues show that Japan has not any confidence in winning the war.

As a country deeply influenced by the failure in war, Japan cannot possibly forget the disasters brought by the war. Avoiding war and seeking peace were the choice and commitment of Japan but it now does exactly the opposite, clamoring for, preparing for and provoking a war and exacerbating the tension in the region.
