    You may become all moe with a cute skirted uniform and all, but then you go against thousands-years-old gender discrimination that is world-famous. Nice

    Japan has been inspired by Strike Witches, SDF Strikewitches Defense Force. You can be a Strike Witch today, the SDF wants YOU!

    Same principle of recruting. Just need the instructor to keep saying, the leg attachments for flying will be done soon so keep studying and doing the exercises.

    It's called Self Defense Force because the Japanese constitution prohibits Japan from having an army.
    So they gave it another name.

    How are the armed forces viewed in Japan. Honorable, or are they ostracized? Or maybe a bit of both like in America?

    Japan uses Moe . . .

    It is super effective! :)

    On a side note, basic training in ANY "armed service" is 95% discipline and 5% weapons. You can teach someone to fire a gun in 2 or 3 days. It takes weeks tho to train them to be organized and take orders and operate as a unit.

    Just because Japan calls it a "defense force" does not make it any less of an army. Same training, same organization. Calling it a defense force may make it more attractive tho to NEETs and Hikikomori who could really use the money and a positive social change of pace.

    A defence force is an army without ambition.

    I wonder when Ishihara will ban joining the Self Defense Force in the name of "self-restraint"... Or maybe he'll try banning the SDF itself?

    pfft.. self defense? they can't even defend themselves domestically and now they want to recruit? the odds are stacked severely high on making an army lol it would be just a phase when they recruit. after a while it'll be dissolved.

    They are not building an Army, more like a Workforce to handle the situation that's happening in Japan.

    They'll need trillions of yen they'll never get back and tens or hundreds of thousands of young people who will be taking government wages instead of paying taxes, and a birthrate high enough to keep the ranks full.

    Good luck.

    What's more, United States troops stationed in Japan act as the best deterrent to Chinese aggression. While it's unclear if China would make a move on a non-nuclear Japan, it is *very* clear that if they made a move on a Japan with US Soldiers, it's automatic war with the United States as well.

    They pay peanuts for it and yet, that promise of auto-war with the United States is a priceless defense policy in today's world where the US military accounts for half of all military resources in the entire world combined.

    Yeah, if China attacks Japan, it would be BEST for a world war 3 to emerge. I see your logic there... not.
    What if China wouldn't be around. Would you move your troops off Japan's territory or find a new potential aggressor? My guessing it's the later. Next it would be North Korea and Russia being the bad guys.

    Oh and, recap, the only ones who waged wars in the past few decades were the U.S. and NATO states. No one else, really. How could you miss that vital factor?

    The country with the biggest military force inevitably turns into a global terrorist state. Same as a democracy led government turns into an oligarchy. It's time you wake up and smell the flowers.

    'I see your logic there... not.'

    You're prejudiced against his intended meaning, and therefore you're not allowing yourself to understand his point.

    His point was that the danger of WWIII becomes a deterrent, and thus prevents the Chinese attack in the first place.

    One might also point out that the USA could easily have nuclear weapons stationed in Okinawa, and those weapons would be a massive deterrent.

    You *are* however mostly correct when you write: "the only ones who waged wars in the past few decades were the U.S. and NATO states. No one else, really."

    However, you're oversimplifying. Consider, for example, Islamic aggression against Serbs, and Jewish aggression against Gaza.

    It would be more accurate to say that the only nations waging traditional war are backed by the USA.

    However, NONTRADITIONAL wars are a very important aspect of modern war. That includes non-state actors.

    The better advertisement - "Join army and you can have all your three holes plugged while being circumfused by liters of bukkake from whole garrison.

    I would consider joining an army if there was a slut that gets raped by a whole division every day.
