    Japan should boosts "offense" budget too. In order for China & Japan to take out U.S together.

    Japan should boosts "offense" budget too. In order for China & Japan to take out U.S together.

    Don't you know current debt/gdp ratio is 214% while Japanese demographic is changing to againg society with regressive population growth. Where do you get extra budget for SDF for offensive use? Sounds like you are ready to change current SDF volunteering system to mandatory servinging system. I see.....Takumi Saito, you are the first one on the list. Great idea.
