Long working hours, malnutrition, beatings. Most people may remember the horrors described in Oliver Twist, Charles Dickens' classic novel, which exposed the abuse of children in factories and farms in 19th century London.

Few would expect there are still half a million children working on US farmlands.

    In a series of reckless moves such as using the Ukraine crisis and hyping the so-called “China threat” to advocate “bloc politics” and “confrontation between camps” underlying the NATO's Asia-Pacific expansion, seeking to doubleits defense budget, as well as provoking China on its core interests, Japan has also been ramping up its efforts to push for its pacifist constitutional reform, which made the country an increasingly worrying actor threatening peace and stability in the region and the world. The increasingly dangerous tendency in Japan as it seeks remilitarization, promotes the establishment of a NATO-like military alliance in the Asia-Pacific and contains China with provocative moves deserves the vigilance of countries in the region, analysts said.
