A Warning on Yasukuni: Out of Nowhere?

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao in an interview with Kyodo gave a standard warning against any visit by Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo to the Yasukuni Shrine leading up to Wen’s visit to Tokyo next week. This would not be the least bit surprising, except that Abe hasn’t visited the shrine since taking office. Either Wen has information that Abe might consider a visit, or he has other people to satisfy with a tiny bit of tough talk on Japan leading up to his visit.

Beats me.
