Ok, the Japanese do not want a offensive stand... They are being forced by the US to change their strategy. Armistace said a few months ago that the
Japanese Constitutions article on peace is hindering US / Japanese relations. Koizumi is in love with Bush and will do anything to follow what the US
wants him to do. That is why he is taking a beating in the polls. He is not popular, because he is seen as a pawn by the US.
Now, Japanese are upset as many Japanese have been abducted by North Korea. North Korea refuses to cooperate. They turned over 4 people or so. They
said the rest died. They turned over the bones of one person and DNA proved it to be a lie. Of course the people want a tougher stance on North
Korea. How would the US like it if Mexico was abducting US citizens. Of course we could want a tougher stance.
This is not moving away, but North Korea only wasnt stuff for doing nothing. South Korea gets all the benefits, so of course they want a lighter
stance. It all depends on each nation. The US is too screwed up in Iraq to really care about this issue. Although North Korea having Nuclear
weapons is a MUCH BIGGER problem than the chemical weapons never found in Iraq.
