TOKYO - A likely win by Shinzo Abe's Liberal Democrats in this weekend's election will give the ex-Japanese premier a second chance to achieve his goal of easing the limits of a pacifist constitution on the military to let Tokyo play a bigger global security role.

Surveys released on Tuesday showed the conservative Liberal Democratic Party and its ally are headed for a big victory in Sunday's vote for parliament's lower house, returning them to power after a three-year gap.

"He will do it because he can. The stars are aligned for that kind of shift sooner rather than later."

The constitution's Article 9 renounces the right to wage war to resolve international disputes and, if taken literally, bans the maintenance of a military.

Further moves, even if in some ways symbolic, would trigger outrage in China, where memories of Japan's wartime aggression run deep. A feud over rival claims to tiny islands in the East China Sea this year sparked violent protests and boycotts of Japanese firms, damaging trade between the region's two biggest economies.

I doubt it.

China will though, and that's why most of SE Asia probably won't mind it. Nearly every country bordering China or bordering the South China sea have territorial disputes with China.

You'd be surprised how fresh Japan's actions during WW2 still is in the minds of Asian countries.

Even the mere mention of Japanese leaders visiting their soldiers' war shrines have sent chills down the spine of Asia.

Imagine what actual rearmament would do.
