Minister of Defense is calling for efforts to work out the military and legal
issues that would result if Japanese were attacked by extraterrestrials. Two
members of the Japanese cabinet have expressed personal beliefs in the
existence of extraterrestrials out
there, somewhere. Because of Japans 1947 constitution, there are restrictions
on what actions the military can take. Basically, the Japanese military is,
technically, a purely defensive force. But an extraterrestrial invasion might
play out in ways that would find the Japanese military prevented, by lawyers,
from moving against an extraterrestrial menace.
We're not making this up.
