The Fake Haruna Yukawa Beheading Story and Article 9 of Japan’s Peace Constitution


by Scott Creighton

“Waging protracted IW (irregular warfare) depends on building global capability and capacity. IW will not be won by the United States alone but rather through combined efforts with multinational partners” the U.S. military handbook on Unconventional Warfare

The unconventional warfare operation known as ‘ISIS™’ has a funny way of targeting various nations just when it is most useful to complicit leaders of those nations to deceitfully convince their own population that they need to take a stronger stand in the Global War on Terrorism against… ‘ISIS™’

We see this pattern over and over again to the point where it is impossible to miss… unless that is what you want to do.

The developing situation in Japan is such that the fake hostage story has been timed perfectly to provide Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the neoconish Nippon Kaigi ,  all the justification they needs to finally put an end to Japan’s “peace constitution” (specifically Article 9) and beef-up their military in order to use those forces to aid in the United State’s Endless Global War OF Terrorism.

Article 9 of Japan’s constitution is a beautiful contribution to a better global society. We need more of them, not less. So I hope the Japanese people defend it from this act of state sponsored false flag terrorism.

Even Fox News (warmongering, lying, globalist supporting Fox News) has admitted the original hostage video was a fake and in spite of that and the fact that one look at the new video and you can see the image of the decapitated man has been poorly Photoshopped, Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is dutifully sticking with the American lies claiming the credibility of this psyop is “high”

We have been looking into its authenticity, but unfortunately, at the moment, we cannot help saying its credibility is high,” Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

In Japan, when someone in public office makes a fool of themselves, kinda like saying that ridiculous image of the beheading is “credible”, the price they have too pay is “high” so why Shinzo would go way out on a limb like this boggles the mind. At first.

Then you have to look at his history of collaboration with the Americans and how he has been working from the start to undermine the constitution of Japan in service to the good old U.S. of A.

(at this point insert your own reminders of the Firebombing of Japan, Hiroshima and Nagasaki)

Years ago Prime Minister Abe did his level best to rewrite Japan’s constitution. Specifically, Article 9 of Japan’s constitution which has been heralded throughout the civilized world as a model that we should all follow.

I will first give it too you in Japanese.

第九条 日本国民は、正義と秩序を基調とする国際平和を誠実に希求し、国権の発動たる戦争と、武力による威嚇又は武力の行使は、国際紛争を解決する手段としては、永久にこれを放棄する。

二 前項の目的を達するため、陸海空軍その他の戦力は、これを保持しない。国の交戦権は、これを認めない。

Now the English translation;

ARTICLE 9. Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes. (2) To accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized.

Could you imagine a world where this was included in every constitution? Could you imagine if we Americans were to put it in ours? Holy crap.

With that said, I want to give you a definition, the accepted definition of “terrorism

First, in Japanese:


Now English:

The use of violence or the threat of violence, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political goals.

I want you to keep that in mind as we go along.

Since 1997 there has been a movement in Japan to return to the glory days of the monarchy and militarism. It’s called Nippon Kaigi and like the neocons or the Washington Consensus in the States, it has been slowly positioning itself to take power and induce “CHANGE” in Japan.

The creation of the openly revisionist lobby Nippon Kaigi in 1997 has considerably accelerated the pressure on Article 9: this very influential organization (289 of the 480 Diet members and 15 of the 19 members of the Shinzo Abe government are affiliated) favors the return to the fundamentals of Imperial Japan, including monarchy, State Shinto, and militarism, and “Nippon Kaigi and its allies aim to revise the constitution, particularly Article 9 (which forbids a standing army)Wiki

For those of you who don’t know, that’s the old fascist Japan; the Japan of the Second Sino-Japanese War , the Japan of the Nanking Massacre. This Japan.

Back in 2007, Prime Minister Abe did what he could to advance the primary cause of the Nippon Kaigi by pushing for a revision of Article 9 of the constitution. However:

“Despite numerous attempts by the LDP to change Article 9 of the Japanese constitution, they have never been able to achieve the large majority required, as revision is opposed by a number of Japanese parties including the DPJ and the Japanese Communist Party.” Wiki

Back in May of last year, Abe tried again, but this time, like our fascist president, Abe decided against trying to change Japan’s constitution through legal channels or with popular approval and just did it anyway via decree along with the Nippon Kaigi Diet members.

In July 2014, Japan’s government approved a reinterpretation of this article despite concerns and disapproval from its neighbours. This reinterpretation would allow Japan to exercise the right of “collective self defense”[1] and exercise military action if one of its allies were to be attacked.[2] It is considered by some parties as illegitimate, posing a serious danger to Japan’s democracy since the Prime Minister circumvented the constitutional amendment procedure, dictating a radical change to the meaning of fundamental principles in the Constitution by way of Cabinet fiat without Diet debate, vote, or public approval.[3] Wiki

It’s interesting to note what exactly that revision aimed to serve. It served American interests predominantly. Not Japanese.

Japan govt to present 15 security scenarios

In order to illustrate just how this current psyop is being used, I present a recent article from CNN which tries to explain what Japan needs to do in light of this recent “crisis”. I’ll give you a hint: it involves ditching Article 9 of their constitution so they can help “‘Merika!” fight “the terrorists”

Looking ahead, the hostage-taking has left many wondering what the impact will be on Japan’s current efforts to upgrade its security policies and processes. The crisis will be seen as underscoring the impact of instability thousands of miles from its shores, and therefore the need for Japan to adopt a sharper, more proactive security posture even beyond East Asia.

More specifically, one of the 15 scenarios presented by the Japanese government in its push toward a more proactive defense posture was allowing the use of weapons in overseas rescue missions of Japanese citizens. The development of this specific scenario reflects the lessons of the 2013 Algeria crisis, and the fact that under current laws, only aircraft, vehicles, and vessels are allowed for transportation.

If these changes are introduced, the Japanese government would be able to dispatch its Japan Self-Defense Force for armed rescue operations (upon approval from the country involved).

Certainly, given the security challenges that Japan faces, both within Asia — in the form of territorial issues with China and with an unpredictable North Korea — and further afield, it seems essential that Japan sharpens and strengthens its defense posture and plays a more proactive international role. CNN, Jan. 24, 2015

According to the warmongers at CNN, it seems “essential” that Japan rewrite their constitution, their “peace constitution”, because someone made a fake video of a fake beheading and did it so poorly that even the MSM has to admit it’s fake (Fox News, New York Post) while hiding all the versions of the latest video because the Photoshop job looks like it was done by a 9-year-old.

It should be noted that CNN has a history of fabricating “news” stories in support of war.

Some of Japan’s leaders like Prime Minister Shinzo Abe have desired for a very long time to do away once and for all with Article 9 of their constitution so they set up a predetermined justification back in May to do just that with the clause “rescuing Japanese citizens with consent of nation or territory”… which is exactly what this fake ‘ISIS Crisis’ provided them.

The vast majority of Japanese citizens do not support any revision of Article 9. It is a matter of national pride.

In spite of glaring problems with the credibility of these videos and the fact that so many Japanese citizens took it upon themselves to highlight and even make fun of these problems with these fake videos, Shinzo Abe is still moving forward with the plan which tells me he isn’t reacting to the situation as it develops but rather trying to maintain it in order to accomplish a previously determined outcome.

At the risk of repeating myself…


It is my hope that the people of Japan, those who have opposed the militarization of their nation and the continued U.S. military occupation in terms of bases on their land, stand firm and reject this act of terrorism. Because that is what it is. Even a fake, forged video of a fake forged kidnapping, is terrorism when it seeks to alter the political, social, economic structure of a nation.

I remind the people of Japan of the incident involving the sinking of the Cheonan. U.S. interests did their best to try to convince the people of South Korea that it was destroyed by the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea (North Korea) in an effort to ignite the flames of war. The people of South Korea didn’t buy it and the machinations of the warmonger Hillary Clinton failed.

This is the Cheonan moment for Japan. I hope they see with eyes as wise as the people of South Korea did when they needed to most.

Article 9 of your constitution is a beautiful contribution to a better global society. We need more of them, not less.

Please, don’t let it go. Not for this.


Please help keep us up and running if you can.

  1. Great article, Scott. Cannot find the right words to praise your work on this, starting with the documentation you gathered to expose the dire and dangerous situation of Japan being pushed into joining the global war criminal gang with the connivance of the Japanese version of neocons.

    • I didn’t know you wrote for a website. Thanks for re-posting. Good video of darling Rita. I’m putting deLiberation on the blog roll.


      Holy shit. Is she that dumb? She said in that video:

      “And in fact, within a short time after our release (fake Steven Sotloff video) ISIS’s account on social media indicated that within a short time they will be releasing the video, only we actually had that video before hand and were able to beat them with the release”

      So, Rita gets and releases these fake beheading videos BEFORE ISIS DOES? They get ’em from her? You know, I had forgotten all about that. I put an update on the two articles dealing that that video and image with a link back to your article.

      • Yes, isn’t it amazing, she manages to upload them BEFORE the “terrorists,” that’s how good she is and how fantastic her sources. There is still the possibility — why not be fair?-that ISIS has this one skill deficit: they are slow uploaders. The fact that the interviewer did not react to this at all, let alone say “get the hell out of here, you shameless liar” must be noted as well.

  2. Many Japanese take the view that the latest ISIS beheading video is fake. Likewise,many Japanese have little trouble accepting 9/11 was not at all as it was officially described, and many view with little resistance the possibility that the Nanking Massacre was a fabricated event. This last is contentious given the immense scale of official Chinese claims (300,000 killed), the way the issue was dragged out of relative obscurity to become an official stick to beat the Japanese with in the 1990s, the lack of verifiable photographic evidence, the rapidity with which normality returned to the city, the size of the city’s measured population before and after the event, and the fact, agreed by everyone, that the Japanese interrupted their rape, pillage and murder spree to agree to the establishment of a “safety zone” for non-combatants. I’ve found very few non-Japanese who are sufficiently minded to entertain the possibility that Nanking has been vastly over claimed, and those that do insist it doesn’t matter given all the other nasty things the Japanese did in the war. The Japanese Government apparently doesn’t want to get into a war of words with anybody about anything (echoing a national psychological trait), which is why they prefer to keep things vague. The Chinese Government, on the other hand, has a very clear view on Nanking and insists that the rest of the world endorses it. The Chinese Government also has an equally clear view on lots of other controversial issues, such as that China’s record in Tibet is unblemished and that Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989 was merely the gentle putting down of a counter-revolutionary riot that had been allowed to go on too long. For all I know, the Chinese may be right. But I worry greatly about their certainty.

    • I’m kinda like you, if I read you correctly, in that I doubt the official numbers of the Nanking Massacre as well. I also always found it odd that such brutality was taking place and the Japanese allowed “American?” observers to kinda hang out and document such things… while we were, if not yet at war with them, certainly not on friendly terms. certainly I put that in the context of the firebombing of Japan and the dropping of two atomic bombs on the nation when it wasn’t necessary. As far as I really know, the “brutality” of the Japanese extended to attacking a naval port of a nation that was in the process of causing them serious harm economically, which is, by the way, an act of war. We in turn attacked civilian population centers all across Japan for 50 days with napalm prior to attacking two more with nukes. Hardly comparable in my opinion.

      I think the problem with Nanking, though the scale might be a bit off, is the mindset of the Japanese soldiers who were, under orders, told to do the kinds of things that would terrorize towns and villages in their path in order to make them submit before the army even got there. There is documentation from Japanese soldiers to this effect and though I don’t claim to be an expert on the matter, it is a matter of record. What comes to mind is the competition between two officers relating to how many people they had beheaded.

      i think it’s more of that imperial mindset that I worry about and I was trying to convey in the article. In fact what I was saying is that the Japanese people should not adopt OUR imperial mindset. God knows.

      I hope that came across in the article.

  3. Willy, I think the article was timely and to the point, and your response was excellent too. It wasn’t my intention to be picky, but in a sense I was because my comment addressed a historical issue that was “off topic”. Anyway, please forgive me if I ramble on for a couple of paragraphs about that, and then I’ll try to get back to relevance.

    Westerners of our generation (I’m in my 50s now) grew up on a certain image of barbaric Japanese soldiers that makes it easy for us to accept any nasty narrative about them at face value. At the same time, I feel almost dirty just trying to ask for proof about specific accusations, as I don’t want to guilty of defending the indefensible. However, the most well-known example of terrorizing the Chinese on the way to Nanking was “the 100-man killing contest”, which was reported first in the Japanese press, and later translated with additions in the Chinese press; and then a decade later this Chinese press article formed the basis for convicting and executing the two soldiers accused of perpetrating it. But did the incident actually happen? Or was it a journalistic fabrication? (Please read a page or two of this, but only if it interests you.

    I’m trying hard not to make any historical claims, or endorse any, about the Chinese-Japanese conflict before 1945 - although as a rule of thumb, I believe all sides commit atrocities in war, everybody tells lies, and invaders and defenders alike have been known to blame each other. I find it hard enough trying to decide how much of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle’s “autobiography” is verifiable or even credible. But then I know instinctively that Kyle’s entire story was a propaganda exercise designed to yield fame and fortune for him while helping the PR image of the US Armed Forces, and being able to pigeonhole it as propaganda is extremely liberating.

    As I see it, the US-led “Great Game” in Eurasia lacks public approval and legitimacy even in the US. It is widely seen and recognized as a job-and-profit-creation scheme for the Military Industrial Complex. So it’s backers need to keep working to justify it as a noble enterprise. Inventing and nurturing enemies such as Al Qaeda and ISIS is part of the strategy, and staging psyops aimed at one member of the Western alliance at a time to encourage their cooperation seems to be another. The recent Paris events have certainly forced the French to get with the program. And the latest ISIS video looks like a means of nudging Japan in the right general direction too. The Japanese MIC would be happy to cooperate with the US but is hamstrung by the Constitution and by the lack of public support for military adventurism. The Japanese are far from enthusiastic as they instinctively know that once the restrictions are off, taxpayers will be forking out big-time to support one side or other in ME or Third World conflicts that rage on without end.

    I think we can rest assured that the Japanese are not going to develop an equivalent of the US Imperial Mindset. That sort of thinking was burned out of them after the big war, and these days they are an aging society with nobody to go out and do the actual fighting. (Even the US relies on non-citizens to fill up the military ranks.) Ever since the 1950s, there has been a faction within the Japanese elite that wanted more active military cooperation with the US, but they have never been dominant and opposition to their aims has always met with strong grassroots opposition. There is no Japanese equivalent of the Tea Party and no subset of the general population that glorifies or fetishizes the military - a great improvement since the 1930s. But there are corporate interests that would promote military integration if this could profit them by selling more Japanese military and security hardware, etc. Given all the above, Japan will slide slowly towards doing what the US wants, horse-trading all the way, but mostly, Japan’s modest actual cooperation will help provide the US policy with legitimacy.
