Former Indonesian dictator Suharto died at 86 on January 27. After WWII, there were two presidents who had similar names in this country. Another man was Sukarno.

There is, however, another well-known person in Japan.

There have been a variety of government agents. They are not necessarily males. Japanese spies act just because of money. All the more reason, they talk about nationalism and ultrarightism. Before and during WWII, Japan actively organized spy networks. After the war, it has continued to organize such networks in complete secret in disguise of a peaceful nation.

One of well-known female spies is Dewi Sukarno. When a man has a special relationship with a Japanese female spy, he often becomes unfortunate or dies. And his huge fortune including slush funds disappears.

As I know only her later life, I hardly can believe that she was the beauty.........

Though it was beyond expectation for every Japanese, Supreme Commander of the Allied Powers Douglas MacArthur suddenly ordered to arrest key 39 Japanese generals and politicians who were designated as Class A War Criminals including Hideki Tojo. Frightened by the assault, some of them tried to kill themselves. Four persons killed themselves. Tojo failed to kill himself. He was injured but he survived. Some others had already committed suicides on August 15.

The day was really "the Day of Betrayal" for the Japanese military. The Allied Powers seemed to arrest nobody. The Headquarters of the Imperial Japanese Army surrendered to the Allied Powers in exchange for the acquittal of all government officials. The September 11 assault was really a betrayal for those arrested.

It is something like the situation in which the police promise the bank robbers who take bank workers hostage not to arrest them in exchange for the release of the hostages and in which the police later arrest them. It may be a betrayal. But the police can't be helped.

She is probably a member of the Fujiwara clan.
