Ex-prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto dies

Former Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto died from multiple organ failure at a Tokyo hospital on Saturday afternoon. He was 68.

The schedule of funeral services for Hashimoto, who served as head of the government for 2 1/2 years from January 1996, has not yet been determined.

Hashimoto was born in Tokyo in 1937. A graduate of Keio University's political science department, Hashimoto successfully ran in a House of Representatives election in 1963 following the death of his father, former Health and Welfare Minister Ryugo Hashimoto.

Hashimoto had since been elected to 14 consecutive terms from Okayama Prefecture. He was appointed as health and welfare minister in the Cabinet of Prime Minister Masayoshi Ohira in 1978. It was his first Cabinet post. As transport minister, he played a leading role in splitting the debt-ridden Japanese National Railways into seven JR companies in 1987.

Hashimoto was appointed as secretary-general of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) in 1989, but was forced to step down two month later to take responsibility for the party's crushing defeat in the House of Councillors election in July of that year.

He became prime minister in January 1996 and worked on administrative reform. He also agreed with then U.S. President Bill Clinton that the U.S. forces Futenma Air Station in Okinawa Prefecture would be closed and its land would be returned to its owners on condition that a substitute facility be built in the prefecture.

Hashimoto stepped down after the LDP suffered a humiliating setback in the Upper House election in July 1998.

In July 2004, he resigned as leader of his faction to take the blame for an incident in which the group accepted 100 million yen in illegal political donations from the political wing of the Japan Dental Association. He retired from politics after he abandoned running in the 2005 election.

Hashimoto was rushed to hospital by ambulance on the night of June 4 after complaining of a stomachache and subsequently underwent surgery to remove most of his large intestine and part of his small intestine. He had since remained unconscious and in a critical condition.

Une chose est certaine a propos de Hashimoto Ryutaro, c'est qu'il avait le bras long. Descendant d'un puissant clan de samourais, il n'etait que l'enieme politicien de la famille. Son influence politique etait preponderante au sein du PLD, et meme apres avoir quitte son siege de Premier Ministre, lui avait ete taille sur mesure par le Premier Ministre Obuchi un poste de "conseiller diplomatique supreme" qui lui conferait des pouvoirs etendus non seulement sur la politique etrangere japonaise, mais aussi interieure... sans etre soumis, evidemment, aux meme contraintes que les "simples" ministres.

Bien que le deces de M. Hashimoto soit survenu le 1er juillet 2006, la ceremonie de funerailles a sa memoire ne se sera tenue que... le 8 aout dernier. C'est qu'il fallait du temps pour l'organiser, cette "grand-messe" qui - cela vaut d'etre rapporte - s'est deroulee au Budokan de Tokyo, en presence de 5.000 hauts dignitaires tant japonais qu'etrangers (246)... Parmi ses derniers, on a pu compter des representants du gouvernement francais depeches expres par le President Chirac, mais aussi le Ministre des affaires etrangeres Sud-Coreen, Ban Ki-moon.

Joe Rosenthal, sur le terrain


Deces ce jour, du photographe de guerre Joe Rosenthal qui eut la presence d'esprit de saisir un cliche qui aura fait le tour du monde, une vue symbolisant tout a la fois l'illimite courage humain et la vanite de la guerre: le lever de drapeau a Iwo Jima (photo ci-dessous).




Rappelons a toutes fins utiles, que cette boucherie innommable que fut cette bataille d'une absurdite complete a fait l'objet d'une transposition a l'ecran sous la direction de Clint Eastwood, qui, pour l'occasion, nous offrira meme dans quelques mois une experience unique: la meme histoire racontee en deux films separes, suivant le point de vue de chaque protagoniste (c'est a dire d'un cote la vision japonaise, de l'autre, l'americaine). Affaire a suivre...


Pour en savoir plus, voyez l'article publie ce jour dans le quotidien national japonais MAINICHI SHIMBUN:




Photographer Joe Rosenthal, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his immortal picture of six World War II fighting men raising an American flag over battle-scarred Iwo Jima, died Sunday. He was 94.

Rosenthal died of natural causes at a retirement home in the San Francisco suburb of Novato, said his daughter, Anne Rosenthal.

"He was a good and honest man, he had real integrity," she said.

His photo, taken Feb. 23, 1945, for The Associated Press, became the model for the Iwo Jima Memorial near Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. The memorial, dedicated in 1954 and known officially as the Marine Corps War Memorial, commemorates the Marines who died taking the Pacific island in World War II.

The photo was listed in 1999 at No. 68 on a New York University survey of 100 examples of the best journalism of the century.

The photo actually shows the second raising of the flag that day on Mount Suribachi on the Japanese island. The first flag had been deemed too small.

"What I see behind the photo is what it took to get up to those heights -- the kind of devotion to their country that those young men had, and the sacrifices they made," Rosenthal once said. "I take some gratification in being a little part of what the U.S. stands for."

He liked to call himself "a guy who was up in the big leagues for a cup of coffee at one time."

The picture was an inspiration for Thomas E. Franklin of The Record of Bergen County, New Jersey, who took the photo of three firefighters raising a flag amid the ruins of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Franklin said he instantly saw the similarities with the Iwo Jima photo as he looked through his lens. Franklin's photo, distributed worldwide by the AP, was a finalist in 2002 for the Pulitzer Prize in breaking news photography.

The small island of Iwo Jima was a strategic piece of land 1,200 kilometers south of Tokyo, and the United States wanted it to support long-range B-29 bombers and a possible invasion of Japan.

On Feb. 19, 1945, 30,000 Marines landed on the southeast coast. Mount Suribachi, at 166 meters the highest point on the island, took four days for the troops to scale. In all, more than 6,800 U.S. servicemen died in the five-week battle for the island, and the 21,000-man Japanese defense force was virtually wiped out.

Ten years after the flag-raising, Rosenthal wrote that he almost didn't go up to the summit when he learned a flag had already been raised. He decided to up anyway, and found servicemen preparing to put up the second, larger flag.

"Out of the corner of my eye, I had seen the men start the flag up. I swung my camera and shot the scene. That is how the picture was taken, and when you take a picture like that, you don't come away saying you got a great shot. You don't know."

"Millions of Americans saw this picture five or six days before I did, and when I first heard about it, I had no idea what picture was meant."

He recalled that days later, when a colleague congratulated him on the picture, he thought he meant another, posed shot he had taken later that day, of Marines waving and cheering at the base of the flag.

He added that if he had posed the flag-raising picture, as some skeptics have suggested over the years, "I would, of course, have ruined it" by choosing fewer men and making sure their faces could be seen.

Standing near Rosenthal was Marine Sgt. Bill Genaust, the motion picture cameraman who filmed the same flag-raising. He was killed in combat just days later. A frame of Genaust's film is nearly identical to the Rosenthal photo.

The AP photo quickly became the subject of posters, war-bond drives and a U.S. postage stamp.

Rosenthal left the AP later in 1945 to join the San Francisco Chronicle, where he worked as a photographer for 35 years before retiring.

"He was short in stature but that was about it. He had a lot of nerve," said John O'Hara, a retired photographer who worked with Rosenthal at the San Francisco Chronicle.

Rosenthal's famous picture kept him busy for years, and he continued to get requests for prints decades after the shutter clicked. He said he was always flattered by the tumult surrounding the shot, but added, "I'd rather just lie down and listen to a ball game."

Rosenthal was born in 1911 in Washington, D.C.

He took up photography as a hobby. As the Depression got under way, Rosenthal moved to San Francisco, living with a brother until he found a job with the Newspaper Enterprise Association in 1930.

In 1932, Rosenthal joined the old San Francisco News as a combination reporter and photographer.

"They just told me to take this big box and point the end with the glass toward the subject and press the shutter and `We'll tell you what you did wrong,"' he said.

After a short time with ACME Newspictures in San Francisco in 1936, Rosenthal became San Francisco bureau chief of The New York Times-Wide World Photos.

Rosenthal began working for the AP in San Francisco when the news cooperative bought Wide World Photos. After a stint in the Merchant Marine, he returned to the AP and was sent to cover battle areas in 1944.

His first assignment was in New Guinea, and he also covered the invasion of Guam before making his famous photo on Iwo Jima.

In addition to his daughter, Rosenthal is survived by his ex-wife Lee Rosenthal, his son Joseph J. Rosenthal Jr., and their families.

Le décès de ce reporter nous remet en mémoire les prouesses accomplies par ces hommes de l'Information, opposés à ceux de la désinformation. Ainsi, en France, un journaliste a été évincé car il avait eu le malheur d'inviter une personne sulfureuse. Il est mort il y a trois jours. Le ban et l'arrière ban journalistique et politique, oubliant les avanies qu'ils lui ont fait subir, se sont répandus dans les médias en versant des larmes de sur leur confrère. Ce qui prouve que journalistes et reporters semblent faire partie de ceux qui sont meilleurs morts que vivants; hélas !

Triste nouvelle que celle-ci, Ando Momofuku vient de nous quitter. Le brave homme etait, il est vrai age de 96 ans, ce qui veut dire qu'il est tout de meme ne a l'Epoque Meiji, ce qui relativise un peu ce deces qui n'a rien de premature. Cela dit, quel homme, quel bienfaiteur de l'Humanite, quel ami des petites gens. Il y a fort a parier que son cortege funebre sera suivi, au moins de coeur et de pensee, par tous ceux a qui M. Ando aura apporter reconfort et bien etre.

Mais je sens que certains d'entre vous se demandent qui est ce Monsieur Ando, cet etre superieur qui, fortune faite, n'a pas trouve decent d'aller se faire domicilier en Suisse ? C'est un de ces "genies" banals qui ameliorent la vie de leurs semblables, a commencer par les plus modestes, et a qui on ne songe pas assez souvent lors des distributions gratuites de distinctions et de medailles en chocolat. Car ce modeste inventeur, enfant du labeur davantage que receptacle d'une inspiration divine, c'est le createur des nouilles instantannees, nourriture des pauvres, des etudiants, des gens presses, des economes, des edentes et de nombre de divorces et de veufs, incapables de se faire la cuisine, c'est dire qu'elle est fournie, l'armee de ceux qui lui doivent une fiere chandelle. A moins qu'au Japon, il convienne de lui devoir un fier baton d'encens...

Merci a vous Ando Momofuku, et bon voyage !

Inventor of "Cup Noodle" Momofuku Ando dies at 96

Momofuku Ando, inventor of the instant ramen noodle and founding chairman of Nissin Food Products Co., died of a heart attack on Friday evening. He was 96.

Born in Taiwan, Ando initially set up a trading company in Taipei before founding a wholesale company in Osaka in 1933.

Ando decided to deal in food after seeing people suffer from poor diet during World War II. Later, he built a laboratory in the garden of his home in Ikeda, Osaka Prefecture, and began developing instant noodles there.

By trial and error Ando found a method to dry noodles using hot oil, and finally succeeded in the development of the world's first instant noodle in 1958, called "Chicken Ramen."

The instant noodle was a big hit, and his company marketed instant "Cup Noodles" in 1971.

Ando opened an instant ramen museum in Ikeda in 1999, where visitors can experience the creation of instant noodles.

Deces ce jour, d'une des figures marquantes de la politique japonaise de ces soixante dernieres annees, Miyazawa Kiichi {宮澤 喜一}.

A 87 ans, il laissera le souvenir d'un ancien Premier Ministre, ancien Ministre des Finances aussi, qui aura su tisser d'etroits liens avec les Etats-Unis d'Amerique grace a sa rare maitrise de l'anglais, des les premieres heures de l'apres-guerre. Son interventionnisme economique aura ete a la fois salue par les nombreux beneficiaires du "miracle japonais" mais aussi fort critique pour son cout en terme de depenses publiques. Personnage a l'image contrastee faite de grands succes mais aussi de parts d'ombres, il quittera l'ensemble de ses fonctions, et notamment son dernier poste de Ministre des Finances en 2004, apres avoir servi successivement le defunt Premier Ministre Obuchi, puis son successeur, Mori Yoshiro.




Pour en savoir davantage, reportez-vous sans plus attendre, a l'article paru ce jour dans le quotidien national nippon, le MAINICHI SHIMBUN, ci-dessous.



Ex-Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa dies at 87

Former Prime Minister Kiichi Miyazawa, known as a liberalist opposed to revising the pacifist Constitution, died of old age at his Tokyo home on Thursday afternoon. He was 87.

The Tokyo native was in favor of actively using taxpayers' money to expand the economy, laying the groundwork for Japan's rapid economic growth in the 1960s and the early 1970s.

Miyazawa, who was born in October 1919, graduated from the law department of the University of Tokyo, and joined the Finance Ministry in 1942. He was subsequently appointed as a secretary to then Prime Minister Hayato Ikeda.

He often accompanied Ikeda on his visits to the United States because of his command of English. He supported the so-called Ikeda-Robertson Talks in October 1953, helping pave the way for keeping Japan lightly armed to put priority on economic growth.

At the recommendation of Ikeda, Miyazawa successfully ran in the House of Councillors election in April 1953 from the Hiroshima prefectural constituency. After serving two six-year terms, he was elected to the House of Representatives in 1967. He had since served 12 terms.

He first became a Cabinet minister when he was appointed as director general of the Economic Planning Agency in the Ikeda Cabinet in 1962. He then served as international trade and industry minister, foreign minister, chief Cabinet secretary and chairman of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) General Council.

He took over the leadership of Kochikai, an intraparty faction previously led by Ikeda, from former Prime Minister Zenko Suzuki in September 1986. At the time, he was called one of the "new leaders" of the LDP along with former Prime Minister Noboru Takeshita and former Foreign Minister Shintaro Abe, the father of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

However, he resigned as deputy prime minister and finance minister of the Takeshita Cabinet in December 1988 after he was implicated in the Recruit stock-for-favors scandal.

Miyazawa became prime minister in November 1991 with the support of the LDP's largest faction led by Takeshita. During his tenure, he unsuccessfully struggled to save the economy from a slump following the bursting of the speculation-driven, asset-inflating "bubble" economy in the late 1980s.

He was also unsuccessful in compiling political reform bills as he had promised.

In June 1993, a no-confidence motion against his Cabinet submitted by opposition parties was approved at the House of Representatives with the support of LDP rebels.

Miyazawa responded by dissolving the chamber for a snap general election. After the party failed to win a majority, Miyazawa stepped down as prime minister and LDP president.

He subsequently served as finance minister in the Cabinets of Keizo Obuchi and Yoshiro Mori.

He retired as a legislator in October 2003 when he abandoned seeking re-election at the strong urging of then Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi.
