The Cabinet of the State of Japan
Conflict: The North Korean Crisis
Ministers of the Cabinet, Japan is the only country to truly know the horrors of nuclear weapons. Yet, once again we find ourselves in the crosshairs of the world's deadliest weapon. As the steadfast counter balance to China in east Asia, we are a prime target of the DPRK’s aggression and missiles. Today ministers, Japan faces a moral and practical dilemma. With pacifism enshrined in our constitution how can we counteract North Korea’s ambition and respect our domestic responsibilities? How will you ensure the stability of our country? How will we come to grips with the ghosts of the past? The ICBM’s on the peninsula are pointing our way. Ministers, call up the reserves of the Japanese Armed Forces, it's our time.
