Japanese Navy had arrived to kill Charlie Chaplin with a tank
May 15, 1932, is one of the darkest dates in Japanese history. This was the day when 11 junior officers of the Japanese Navy arrived with a tank to kill Charlie Chaplin. The place was the official PM residence of the then Japanese Prime Minister Tsuyoshi Inukai in Tokyo. Charlie Chaplin had reached PM Suyoshi’s guest a day earlier on May 14. When the Marines arrived at the PM’s residence to assassinate him, Charlie Chaplin had gone to watch sumo wrestling with the Prime Minister’s son Takeru Inukai. So the Marines killed their own Prime Minister Suyoshi Inukai. Although Charlie Chaplin managed to escape from Japan.
Why did the Japanese soldiers want to kill Charlie Chaplin?
This was the beginning of the modern era of Japan. Japan was engaged in strengthening its economy. Along with this, the governments of Japan were constantly formulating many such rules and schemes, which would help in making Japan a strong nation in the future. This was also affecting the military structure of Japan. The expenditure of the army was controlled to strengthen the economy. Therefore, there was discontent in a large group of Japanese army and they wanted to impose military rule in the country. The conspiracy to assassinate Charlie Chaplin was also part of this episode. In fact, the rebel soldiers hoped that by killing Charlie Chaplin, they would be able to provoke America to war. In this way they will get a chance to impose military rule in Japan. However he failed.

This time the rebel soldiers killed many politicians in different parts of the country. It also included two former prime ministers, Korekiyo Takahashi and Makoto Saito. Both former prime ministers of Japan were assassinated by rebel soldiers at their residences. The aim of the rebel soldiers was to kill the then Prime Minister of Japan, Keisuke Okada. However, the rebels could neither kill him nor could they succeed in their plans to overthrow the power. This was the second biggest conspiracy in the history of Japanese politics.
