It’s wrong to back pedal on non-nuclear issues

Aug. 19, 2010

Craig Martin’s article “It’s wrong to backpedal on non-nuclear principles” in the Japan Times comes at a very important time. The world is more acutely aware of the proliferation of nuclear weapons and their inherent danger to all species on our planet since President Obama’s speech in Prague calling for a nuclear free world. That forces in the Japanese government prodded by the U.S. continue to lobby for an amendment to the constitution that would modify the three non-nuclear principles is to send a message to the citizens of Japan that their lives are worth nothing more than the paper the constitution is written on. The secret pacts with the U.S., the nuclear umbrella, the extended occupation of Okinawa are tragic overtures to an apocalypse  that most certainly threatens the existence of the free world.  It is disheartening and disgusting that the citizens of both Japan and America allow their administrations to play nuclear roulette with their lives. Now is the time for a grass roots movement on a global scale to demand that Japan honor her Peace Constitution and that America withdraw all troops from the Japanese islands including Okinawa. A political lie basically has a short life. These lies by the U.S. and Japan can no longer sustain themselves in the international community and need to be abolished immediately!

Thank you, Mr. Martin for so clearly stating the legal analysis behind Article Nine and the peace Constitution.
