Dear Mr. Trump, Remove Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


For over 70 years Japan has not been able to have a large standing military because of the Constitution that General Douglas MacArthur wrote after the surrender of Japan in World War II. At the time it was written with the intent to remove any ability of Japan to renew another war with the United States with any Naval capacity. In those 70 years Japan has proven to be one of our most trusted allies in the region during and after the Cold War. Now with the renegade state known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea or more commonly North Korea threatening world peace with it's aggressive missile and nuclear testing we need our allies to be able not only to defend themselves but to be able to aid others. Having a larger and official military will allow Japan to rely less on the United States for self defence but also to stage disaster relief, aid, and peace keeping missions internationally which was only recently allowed in the past 3 years. This will also create more jobs and help the economic rut that Japan is experiencing. The United States is responsible for this, the United States should also be the one to amend it. Dear Mr. Trump, remove this Article.
