英会話ブログ その595     Japan's Military Might (1)

2015/02/06

I think many of you reading this blog will be surprised to know that Japan's miltary power is ranked number 10 (out of 100 plus countries) on the world's stage.

After close to 70 years of complete peace since the end of world War 2 in 1945, Japan's SDF (Self-Defense Forse) has been steadily building and upgrading a very formidable military capability.

Of course, according to Article 9 of the Japanese constitution, this mighty force would only be used in self-defense, should Japan itself be attacked by a hostile country.                                             (V.C)
