Japan will send soldiers to Iraq
[Tokyo, July 26, 2003] After heated debate, Japan’s parliament approved to send its armed personnel to Iraq, the first time ever since WWII.
Some opponents claim that this dispatch will violate the peace article in Japan’s constitution. Japan’s premier indicated that he would be capable of convincing the public to support this act. A public survey on July 22 showed that 55% of the populace opposed this move, while 33% supported it.
