Yomiuri wrote that the GOJ is planning to approve at a Cabinet meeting on Dec. 18 its plan to continue discussing the idea of Japan acquiring the capability to strike enemy bases. However, the paper speculated that the GOJ is not planning to use the phrase “capability to strike enemy bases” and to state instead that it will continue discussions on “how to enhance deterrence” out of deference to the Komeito party, which is cautious about the idea.
