Crap reporting.So according to this article the US supports Japan with the plan to become the third most powerful country in the world. With increasing the defence budget for 100% Japan wants to achieve that in just 5 years!
I wonder how they want to achieve that without WMD.
Het is de eerste keer dat de Japanse premier Washington bezoekt. Het bezoek moet symbool staan voor een versteviging van de militaire en economische samenwerking tussen de twee landen.nos.nl
It could have the third biggest military budget converted at prevailing exchange rates & ignoring the massive increase in Russian spending this year, but obviously that isn't the same thing as the most powerful armed forces. It ignores price differences & how long that level of spending has been going on.
