In the aftermath of World War II, the United States forced Japan to accept Article 9 of its constitution, which outlaws war as a means of resolving international disputes with other states. In 2015, amidst calls for the wholesale repeal of the article, Shinzo Abe’s government succeeded in reinterpreting Article 9 to allow Japan’s Self-Defense Forces to come to the aid of their allies in war.
