Japan Undermines Key Constitutional Article

I post this, not because Japan represents any threat to the United States, but it reflects the incredibly dramatic and historic Constitutional changes taking place in other parts of the world that most Americans are not aware of. Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s cabinet has made a decision which effectively undermines their own Constitutional Article 9 which prevented Japan’s involvement in international conflicts. I don’t blame Japan for seeking to establish a stronger self-defense position, but I think few people believed a change of this magnitude would ever be made.
