Post-WWII, the United States forced an exclusion of a Japanese standing army. In return, it was promised the United States would come to Japan's aid if an instance occurred where Japan was a target of a foreign entity. Therefore, it is the United States' responsibility to assure Japan of full joint-military cooperation to prevent an attack, and establish military and domestic measures in the event of an attack. North Korea's prevailing nuclear weapons testing programs may not be of imminent threat to the United States, but South Korea (our ally) and Japan have genuine need for concern. To put this resolution in place may help forestall the North Korea threat. Immediate military action should remain exclusively in the United Nation's domain.
