    “Any attempt by Japan to strengthen its military capabilities will elicit similar moves in both countries. Especially China.”

    Oh, come on! This is putting the cart before the horse, the only reason Abe is getting any traction is that China has been increasing military spending by outrageous amounts every year, and expressing territorial ambitions by rattling the saber on every one of its borders. South Korea’s problem is mostly its weak leftist president, and Japan would be getting along with someone stronger and conservative.
