Japanding Military Budgets

The arms race is far from over

So we don't look like the only paranoid gun-toters, US Ambassador J. Thomas Schieffer wants Japan to expand its military spending - because everyone else is doing it!

Japan has a bit of a history of too much militarism, and is trying to even further reduce their military budget.
"We believe that Japan should consider the benefits of increasing its own defense spending to make a greater, not lesser, contribution to its own security," Schieffer said in a speech at the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan.
How many attacks on Japanese soil have there been in the last century? I can only think of two major ones, in August 1945
