Japan ruling party urges strike ability amid NKorea threat

TOKYO -- Japan's ruling party has urged the government to consider arming itself with more advanced and offensive capability, such as striking enemy targets with cruise missiles, loosening Japan's self-defense-only military posture since the end of World War II.


The Liberal Democratic Party's panel on security policy urged the government to immediately start studying ways to bolster Japan's capability to intercept missiles with a system like the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD system, that the U.S. and Seoul have agreed to install in South Korea.
