    China and North Korea force update in Japanese military - News - Scotsman.com

    Extracts:








    It could be that Japan now realises the threat posed by muscle flexing China and the erratic North Korea.

    The shift of importance from the Army to the Air Force and Navy indicates that possibly Japan was contemplating a pro active defence strategy instead of the defensive one that has been as per their policy and Constitution.
