Mr. Abe tries to re-interpret the Japan's
Constitution that prohibits having armed forces to have the right to
collective self-defense, or to retaliate for an ally under armed attack.
It's because it is very difficult for him to amend the Constitution.
I do not think many people understand him. As one political scientist
says, Mr Abe should call a general election to ask if Japan should amend
the Constitution, and have the right to collective self-defense. That
is a true process of parliamentary democracy representing the will of
the people in a free and open manner.
