I mentioned the Japanese renunciation of war as a valid path to resolution in the last post. Here's the actual article of renunciation in their constitution. It has a nice ring to it. I like the choice of words that begin it, "aspiring sincerely" and that it ends on resolute note.
CHAPTER II: RENUNCIATION OF WAR
Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes. 2) In order to accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized.
