Regarding Gregory Clark’s Aug. 26 article, “First ban the hawks, then the bomb“: With all due respect to Clark, why do I get the feeling after reading his articles that he seems to blame everything on “rightwing hawks” in Japan, while repeating the same points and claims? Trouble with China? Rightwing hawks! Northern Islands dispute unresolved? Rightwing hawks! Failure of the six-party talks? You guessed it.
