(By Kelly McDonald, Jr) Japanese lawmakers are working on a resolution that allows them to launch a preemptive strike on North Korea. North Korea has really been making waves in the news recently with threats to attack South Korea, Japan, and even the US. These targeted countries have been cooperating with each other to form a counter-attack strategy if war breaks out.
Japan’s current constitution, formed by the US after World War II, prevents them from attacking countries first. They can only attack another country if they are attacked first. It would require a change in their constitution to allow them to have first strike capabilities. The country has been preparing for an attack with evacuation drills for civilians. North Korea has promised to do another Nuclear Test; stay tuned for more updates.
