Farxist Marxist: Maybe if they just called their sailors "associates".

Pumpernickel bread: This is a good thing on a number of levels.. A representative government calls the shots now, not an emperor, so we don't have to worry about them trying to go out and dominate the world. And considering how China is starting shiat with them over those fishing islands....a stronger military gives them more influence in regional affairs. This takes pressure off the U.S. military, which has been the police in the region since WWII. Not to mention the Japanese are getting sick of U.S. bases in their country. A military of their own reduces the need for us to be there.
