This is the reason I like ATS. We ask why.
Well...let`s look at why.
The American Empire is not what it used to be. There have been cuts in the military which has made J-gov worry that it`s nationalist stance and
distaste for it`s Asian neighbors might finally become a problem. Also, Japan is on a money grab recently. The J-gov wants to cash in on the growing
power vacuum in Asia.
Sadly, having nuke technology means power in the world. Giving up nukes means Japan will have to finally deal with all the bad blood it has brewed
with it`s Asian neighbors. China and several other Asian nations now have nuke weapons and nuke technology. All Japan has is nuke NPP`s which is
enough to prevent an attack because any attack on Japan means huge nuclear meltdowns which would make Fukushima look like a picnic in the park.
I need time to put in more solid researched ideas. Yet, this is how I see it from following the entire situation from day one. You have inspired me to
attempt to dig up all the research I have had to do in order to follow this very complex situation.
