Abe Thinks US Feels Threatened With His Aussie Deal
What Abe does not understand is that the US will simply ignore Japan and keep pumping business into China.
Any way, Japan has already backed off signing the TPA with Australia as Japanese farmers threatened to back the opposition party Democratic Party of Japan ahead of December 14 polls.
Now, Abe has backed Japan into a corner since Australia in return killed the TPA in the parliament. Japan either signs the TPP or the high tariffs on Japanese cars remain in Australia, New Zealand, USA, and Canada. Abe again flubbed an opportunity with catering to the wrong lobby.
