Cumbersome Security Bills

New security bills, which have been in a fierce controversy in Japan, might have made a departure from Japan's postwar pacifism.
I'm not familiar with laws or politics, but I tried to grasp them on the Net and in the papers as much as possible. However, I didn't understand them clearly because there were some unobvious explanations from the Cabinet. Only one thing left in my mind: There would be a possibility that Self-Defense Forces might result in risking their lives. Every Japanese is proud of Article 9: We renounce war for good, and we should rethink how miraculous it is that we haven't been concerned in war directly since we were defeated in WWⅡ.

Don't get me wrong. I think, of course, that we should cooperate with other countries to keep the peace for the world. What I want to say the most is that the explanations from the government were not enough for us to convince that the current security laws should be revised fearlessly. Reinterpreted Article 9 might have meant a new raison d'etre: It might make Self-Defense Forces turn back to the prewar generation although it sounds a little exaggerated.

What do you think?
