Everyone thinks this change is about war with China, that seems very naive a thought. Its not an issue of having a military legally capable of fighting overseas that makes me nervous it's the fact that NATO will be knocking on the door the second that change is approved. I envision this as a welcome invite, and you will see JSDF personnel in Afghanistan, and every other armpit country that can't get their act together and join the 21st century.
Yes it's terrible to see JSDF personnel dying in wars they have nothing to do with. But as a tax payer it's going to be harder to watch my salary shrink when the sales tax is 20% and the National Deficit is catching up to the U.S.
