It’s illegal to send soldiers to war zones under our constitution. But who cares.

It’s illegal to send soldiers to war zones under our constitution. But who cares.

The problem is that the Diet passed a law that allows precisely this. It's a law apparently unconstitutional but legal at the same time.

We could call it an accepted legal unconstitutionality. Fruit of a constitutional law that is too obsolete today. That's why Article 9 should have a small revision. To adapt it to our days.

It's all about oil.

It’s illegal to send soldiers to war zones under our constitution. But who cares.

It's not our constitution. It's the Constitution of Japan.

I'm disgusted at a problem in the South Sudan.

They haven't a mind to settle it by a discussion.

Representatives are gathered and fight on the ring that will save us time.

They are sent only in support roles. They aren't even allowed to fire their weapons. But who cares about details.

Absolutely.
