The Future of the Japanese Military
As tensions continue to escalate between the United States and North Korea, it is easy to overlook other military entities involved in the situation. Such is the case with Japan, who has a military force that should not be forgotten, explained Maxwell Professor Robert Murrett to USA Today.
“I would never underestimate the Japanese military,” he said. “In terms of just sheer military proficiency — unit for unit, person for person, they’re the best military in Asia. From a policy approach, they’re getting more energetic and less deferential to their neighbors or to the umbrella provided by the United States.”
