    Well, Japan being pacifist is a great idea in a world that is not on edge. The Orient and Asia in general have become a hot bed of tension, especially in Japan's vicinity, where China has been bullying the Phillipines and Vietnam over territory. China has even locked horns with Japan a few times.

    And of course, there's North Korea...

    Abe is a realist. I think he has only adjusted the notion of alliance to normal one.
