Finally, it is done. This was already mentioned on the forum on Sept, 23, but now it is done. The problem? Population is against that move.

Polls said that Japaneses people feels this move is at 70% not needed. There was also a rally against this new law. This bill allows to send the Japan's armed forces to other countries even if they're not directly threatened, much like it is needed in alliances system. This is, after all, why alliances exists: to be not alone against a threat to any country, doesn't matter if you are directly involved.

But the problem is not only here. Despite the threat of having Asian conflicts have rose in the past years, Japan hasn't yet spent more money to its national defense.

From what I remember, Japan has no armed forces as a consequence of their lesson learned from their experience in the second world war. But with what's going on in the world right now, it is foolish not to have an army to protect your country. I would go for that bill to create an army even only for contibuting to the alliance with other nations. That army will protect the peace in Asia... somehow.
