Japan Claims Plans to Build Working Gundam

Must be an election year. Why else would Japan, which has many bigger problems than military, wants to build a fully-functioning battle Gundam. Well, at least its only one political party.

Of course, there are hugely mixed feelings about this. Many would feel there are for more practical reasons for a giant robot or a less giant robot none of which includes fighting other giant or non-giant robots.

I agree that having a giant robot to represent your military would be pretty scary, but you should fix all of your roads, and social impotence and nuclear problems first.
