I am a supporter of Japan improving her military capacity as this is a prerequisite for her regaining her sovereignty from the Internationalists who attempted to set Japan’s demilitarized, emasculated status in stone via the 1951 San Fransisco Peace Treaty and the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan which was ratified in 1960.
If liberal observers reject the Israeli proposal that Palestinians consent to demilitarization as part of their attainment of statehood and sovereignty then they should equally refuse to accept the intolerable idea that the fine people of Japan should be without a modern military to defend themselves against adversaries.
However, Japanese militarization would be futile were the country’s military to end up being in control of those very forces she needs to obtain independence from. Genuine nationalists both within Japan and elsewhere should be sure to expose any abuse of Japanese militarization by those who would like to transform Japan into a pawn of the destroyers of nations.
Having watched Canada undergo militarization in the service of the U.S. and Israel I am fully aware of the possibility of comparatively peaceful nations morphing into attack dogs for the corrosive forces of Internationalism.
