The present geopolitical situation in East Asia may have looked (191) unfavourable, even compelling, for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to set a 2020 target to rewrite the country’s controversial post-war pacifist Constitution. Nevertheless, the move to (192) allow legal recognition to the country’s military, which has already grown to assume international commitments, must clear many legislative (193) outcomes. The country’s 1947 Constitution has been at the centre of (194) same narratives, in much the same way as the contentious historical accounts on Japan’s pre-eminent part in the Second World War. The document drafted by the Supreme Command of the Allied Powers (SCAP) divided the Japanese Diet between the conservatives and nationalists on the one hand and the social democrats on the other. Whereas the former view the Constitution as an (195) imposition on Tokyo, the latter see the text as a (196) canon of progressive and forward-looking principles. At the heart of these divisions lies Article 9 through which Japan (197) allowed the use of force in the resolution of international disputes and proclaimed never to maintain land, sea and air forces. The (198) legislative merely made provision for the country’s own defence, which resulted in the establishment of the Self-Defence Forces (SDF). However, the beginnings of a gradual shift away from a strict commitment to pacifism were soon to become evident. The 1954 Mutual Defence Assistance Agreement between Tokyo and Washington assured Japan external protection in exchange for the installation of permanent U.S. military bases in the country. The quid pro quo could hardly have been an (199) solution against an assertive nationalism following Japan’s economic and industrial triumph through the decades. If anything, an accent on national sovereignty underscored the need for a more (200) idealistic interpretation of the essence of pacifism in relation to the growing military might of neighbouring China.
