US Sees no Terror Threat in Japan is the title of the article. That should put a whole lot of people at ease...NOT. Since the US hasn't seen threats to their own people in the past. And what better way to boost your re-election chances than to put someone else's people's heads on the block. The US bullies Japan into sending troops to the radioactive killing fields of Iraq. A great article by Chalmers Johnson on the issue. He even lets on that the Japan forces have already been fired on. I hadn't heard that in the domestic press.
Japan could have taken the high road. Again, they take the road to war.
