There is quite a big anti war movenment in Japan, im not sure how things would pan out if japan began to build their Military again. There is more
emphasis onthe individual now, the Younger Japanese, the ones born after the war are not the same people that went to war in the 40s. The mind set id
different, i agree with leveller that the people there are sorry for what happened although i dont beleive japan ever appologised for the things they
did in the war to POWs and china etc.
After all Japan has done well without a large armed forces with americanj help since the end of the war. But tentions with North Korea may push them
into a millitary build up up.
