Japan to re-enter fight against terrorists

Yesterday in the Wall Street Journal's Opinion Journal section, there was a pretty interesting article about the new Prime Minister of Japan, Mr. Yasuo Fukuda. It seems that Japan has been watching the US Senate, because they were put in a position where they had to use the 'constitutional option' in the lower house (two-thirds yes vote is necessary) in order to override the vote of the upper house. Pretty cool, eh? If only we had the stones here...

What was the vote needed to do? Since 1951, the constitutional option has not been used, but the upper house did not want to join in the war against those who are terrorize the world. Prime Minister Fukuda saw the situation differently. Apparently, so did the lower house! Please read the article. Have a great day. Digg! Digg!
