Yes. They are called the Defense Force. Which is what I said, Japan does not have a offensive military. They could not go to war if Japan wanted them to because it is against their Constitution.


CHAPTER II.  RENUNCIATION OF WAR


Article 9.
Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes.


In order to accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized.



The Japs for-go war after there WW2 as kicking. This was part of the Peace Treaty between the U.S. and Japan.


Japan is allowed to have enough troops to defend its borders long enough for the U.S. to arrive to protect them. There Defense troops are a mirror of our National Guard.


I suppose.  But Japan has about 250,000 active troops, which ranks them 24th in the world.  They also have huge arsenal of war planes and ships to use.  Currently, it is unlikely that Japan would ever use these in an offensive war, but if the world was to explode into world war, I don't see why they wouldn't get involved... even if it's against their constitution.  

After all, they have deployed troops to Iraq, which many people complained was a violation of their constitution.

On a brief visit to the Gaza Strip, Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Qandil has denounced Israel's attacks on the Palestinian territory and said Cairo would try to secure a ceasefire.
"Egypt will spare no effort ... to stop the aggression and to achieve a truce," Qandil said as he visited wounded residents at a Gaza hospital on Friday.
Fighting reportedly continued along the Israel-Gaza border during Qandil's three-hour visit, despite Israel announcing it would hold its fire while Qandil was in the enclave on the condition that Hamas fighters did the same.
After everything is said and done, more is said than done. - Noah

Now that Israel understands that they are largely on their own for their defense in the region, I think Israel will tolerate very little before acting in these matters going forward, in an attempt to make it known to their adversaries that there will be hell to pay for attacking the Israeli homeland.
