In 1946, our occupying forces in Japan re-wrote the Japanese Constitution including Article 9, a law forbidding Japan to ever make war again. Four years after imposing this new constitution upon Japan, the U.S. government made a serious effort to get the Japanese to drop Article 9 and go to war against North Korea. The Japanese refused and have lived as a peaceful nation for the last 66 years. Not one soldier or civilian lost to war-making. Article 9 is a proven example of democracy in action. LOBBY OUR CONGRESS PEOPLE TO INTRODUCE ARTICLE 9 AS AN AMENDMENT TO OUR CONSTITUTION. END WAR-MAKING AS A POLITICAL TOOL.
