Artticle 9 of the Japanese Constitution

I regret that I do not have a vote for this Japanese election on July 21, 2013. They are trying to change Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution. If you have a vote, please vote wisely.

"ARTICLE 9. Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes. (2) To accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized."
