Japan learned the hard way. Do not ever, interfere in a Chinese civil war unless you really have to go in. You don't know what could be right.

Granted, the military restrictions put on Japan after WWII kind of make things hard for them to assist us in the case of military hostilities in the first place...but whatever, Trump likely isn't aware of that, meetings with Abe or no.

Regardless.. well and good being willing to stand on our own two feet.


I think Japs are trying to be neutral gain. Anyways Japan will never be able to assist US anyways because all the brainwash race war morons thinks every Asians are less superior and thinks they will takeover the country.

No, I don't think any of those three countries are going to jeopardize what they've got going on.

But historically, there has been little love lost between those three countries. That has mellowed a lot over the past half a century--especially as concerns Japan and (South) Korea. That is due, imho, in no small part to their close alliance with the United States.

Japan's Constitution forbade them from having a military. It is something they are looking at changing. They can only have a defensive force and are not allowed to have an offensive military.


Maybe that is true, but the secret is out. People here in Japan want protection from any type of invasion and the Japanese National Defense Force is a very highly trained force of war and peace and national disasters that may occur at any time. The people here rely on them as much as people rely on food stamps in the States and this is not an understatement either.
In the States you get looters, here you get the military to take control. Seems to be a better solution. The foreigners here would loot also, but dare not too. Don't mess with JNDF these are so tough motherfkers.

What are you even talking about?

The US and Japan have cooperated militarily for years now, and would as necessary should the time come.

...and "Japs", really?

...and their military is nothing to sneeze at either, to be quite fair.

Top of the line, all across the board.


Still useless against Godzilla, though.

You think its that simple to change a constitution?

wiki


Amendments and revisions.
The Constitution has not been amended since its enactment in 1947. Article 96 provides that amendments can be made to the Constitution if approved by super majority of two-thirds of both houses of the Diet, and by simple majority in a referendum.

You missed the 2015 Japanese military legislation, which will allow the military to be deployed overseas.




The changes would allow Japanese troops to fight abroad for the first time since World War Two.



Japan to allow military role overseas in historic move


Japan's parliament has voted to allow the military to fight overseas for the first time since the end of World War Two 70 years ago.



Mr Abe's government has pushed for security legislation that would allow Japan's military to mobilise overseas when these three conditions are met:

when Japan is attacked, or when a close ally is attacked, and the result threatens Japan's survival and poses a clear danger to people
when there is no other appropriate means available to repel the attack and ensure Japan's survival and protect its people
use of force is restricted to a necessary minimum




Japan would be able to provide logistical support to South Korea if the North invaded, though Mr Abe has said it would still be against the constitution to send Japanese troops to fight on Korean soil.


And so on and so forth...

That means nothing when you have racism in the country. You don't see a Japanese military base in US do you? It has always been the other way around.

Well, that lack might have a little somethin' somethin' to do with the outcome of WWII.

At that time, Japan had several bases on US territory. In Alaska, Attu and Kiska, though the why of that remains a mystery to me...miserable little islands at the best of times. Being a garrison troop there couldn't have been much in the way of fun, or even tolerable...

Wake Island. Guam. All captured during the first 6 months of the war, taken away later.

...racism? There's always been racism. Japan was notorious for it, and the US wasn't exactly innocent in that regard, either...

I suppose it's still around. But I doubt it'll stop the military's of either country from cooperating as necessary.
