Japan creates military bureau

In another step towards militarization, Japan has created a defence or war ministry. It already spends a considerable fortune on its military might.

Hmmm... wonder how the (Communist) Chinese perceive it?

I wouldn't be surprised that one day a nuclear war broke out between China and Japan- both sides hate each other very very much.

From Ancient Bitterness flows a bloody river...

Japan creates defence ministry

JAPAN has created a full-fledged defence ministry for the first time since World War II, when the United States stripped the defeated country of its right to a military.

Post-war Japan has had a "Defence Agency" with lower standing than full-fledged ministries as the 1947 constitution declared the country to be pacifist.

Despite calling its troops the "Self-Defence Forces", Japan has one of the world's biggest military budgets at $52.25 billion a year.
