Is it just me....or is the definition of Self Defense Force being a bit stretched when Japan is staging drills for Amphibious assault? Are they
training to take BACK one of their own islands? If not....I think it's time someone directly ask this question or change their constitution to allow
them a legal military with offensive capability. They seem to be making one whether it's "allowed" or not, anyway.
I was rather interested to see the story here...until the above hit me like a thunderclap. I just thought to myself it was so weird that we hadn't
seen Japanese troops doing this before. Then...wait a sec..Japanese TROOPS?! Yeah... There is a problem here. Those terms, by their national
constitution, are supposed to be mutually exclusive. How do the Japanese people feel about their nation rejoining the world military community as a
power capable of offensive war? (Or working toward it, obviously..)?
