I would have loved to fight beside a Type 10 (10式戦車 Hitomaru-shiki sensha) in Iraq.

I'm kinda torn on the issue.


On one hand, Japan should be able to get stronger, especially with China.

On the other hand, they might get involved in unnecessary wars.

They could be pretty helpful, but at the same time they dont educate their people about ww2 properly. now it might just be me, but i think its a good idea for them to learn about the past so it doesn't get repeated or at least they should acknowledge what happened before they start deploying troops to other places.

That mean Japan and China will go to War! USA support Japan and we'll ending up having to support them against China! XD But War is last thing we want..

It would be cool if we have Mechs (Gundam) But it look better in Anime instead of real life! XD

With things like ISIS even executing Japanese citizens, I can't blame them for wanting to get involved militarily in world affairs once again.

i didn't even know they couldn't but come to think of it i never hear of their military going overseas

fine by me, they're close allies with the USA so right on


That's why it was called A Self Defense Force rather than an army.

Here's something interesting to add on top of it:

I don't like it at all.

I don't trust the Japanese whatsoever when it comes to politics, history, and military.

They've had a very bad track record on antagonizing their neighbors.
Considering how influential the right wing nut jobs are in Japan, the average Japanese clearly cares very little about foreign policy.

I have mixed feelings. They're strong allies, and will probably help balance the scale of power in Asia.

But I feel for the majority of their people who don't want this, and wish to remain pacifists. They've really prided themselves on that for a long time now, and I think it's commendable.

If they are doing this without the approval of the people than the next elections in japan should be interesting.

Why would the Japanese have military bases in the U.S? I mean I guess they could, but I don't really see any reason for it.

Japan is on the top 10 list for military power, If they are willing to contribute some of that power It will reduce the burden on the U.S. a little bit so i'm all for it.
