"He also wants to clarify Japans right to defend itself, by changing the pacifist constitution banning a Japanese military and by spelling out Japans right abandoned for half a century to participate in collective self-defence."
I personally would welcome a rearmed Japan. It would have the Chicoms and that fuzzy little nut salad in North Korea doing kaa kaa in their undies.
