Japan new government

Japan should contribute the peace of the world much more. It does not mean that Japan increases military support but it should stress the way of peaceful solution of conflicts such as in Afghanistan or Iraq. Mr. Fukuda is a moderate statesman so he can perform flexible policy for the peace of the world. Mr.Fukuda is a conservative with many of the beliefs of ex PM Koizumi but don't expect any fireworks or real changes in the near future.The fact that his Cabinet will be mainly of existing Abe members is a signal of what to expect.There has to be a new, forward thinking party if Japan ever hopes to climb out of the stale political cycle.Mr.Fukuda says that he hopes to revive the LDP.I wish him luck but I won't hold my breath.
