Discussing the “reinterpretation” of Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution. This “reinterpretation” effectively allows Japan to exercise the right to collective self-defense (i.e. militarily aid it’s allies if they’re attacked). After WWII, Japan renounced war as a means to settle international disputes, however, that does not prohibit Japan from having self-defense forces. The deployment of Japanese forces overseas (in support roles) is usually a rather controversial topic.
