The following is the continuation of the previous chapter.

It is not an invasion nor exploitation

The third resignation of the Konoe Cabinet (October 16th the same year) was caused by the disagreement between Tojo and Toyota Foreign Minister.

Konoe opened a meeting with the three heads of land, sea, foreign affairs and the president of the planning institution at the private residence Tekigai.

Konoe and Toyoda insisted that there was a diplomatic conclusion, but Tojo cannot make concessions on the issue of the Sina exit, regarding the prospect of war, we discussed it at Gozen Kaigi on September 6th and declined that we cannot make it any more.

Oikawa was the opinion of Prime minister's decision.

The day before the talks, the Navy would like to continue negotiations with the US, but because it could not say that, it was telling Konoe that it would be Prime minister's decision.

Although Tojo recalls that there was room to convince the Army if he knew it beforehand, the navy could not openly say "war cannot be done".

However, if he was not confident, he should have asserted so, but the Navy minister did not speak at the meeting.

As you read "Affidavit", you can see that Tojo already had the opinion that Gozen Kaigi's decision on September 6 had to return a blank paper.

And since it is not easy for the ordinary cabinet to reconcile the conclusion of Gozen Kaigi attended by the Emperor, Prince Naruhiko Higashikuni, the royal family, is considered to be a good candidate for successor to Konoe, and tell it to Konoe It was. In contrast to that proposal, it was Inner Minister Koichi Kido who in turn opposed Tojo to the successor leader. In the case of

In the act that the Emperor ordered the cabinet, Kido told Tojo as the Majesty’s intention that the Emperor is against the war until the end, so it is not bound by the Gozen Kaigi decision on September 6.

So, Tojo reduces Gozen Kaigi on September 6th to a blank sheet and enters into negotiations with the US with the famous A draft and B draft.
