Add comment on:Leon Panetta, an inveterate Wolf in Sheep's clothing
The recent visits to Japan and China by US War Secretary Leon Panetta proved to be a case of "Dancing with A Warhawk." Even though the hardline ex-CIA chieftain tried hard to conceal the militarist "pivot to the Pacific" as a non-threatening "re-balance" of its offensive forces, the reality of that policy clearly reveals the "containment" of a rising Chinese influence in the region. In particular, his lip service to "peaceful cooperation" with China is in sharp contrast to the openly-biased stance of the USA empire's reliance on using the US-Japan Treaty as justification in unilaterally assigning the Diaoyu/Senkaku islets to Tokyo's jurisdiction.
