The Japanese government's pledge of an additional $9 billion to support the multinational forces in the Persian Gulf War was an impressive number, but it may be no more than that--just a number. Deeply entrenched pacifist sentiment in the political opposition and among the population at large threatens to either block the appropriation or strip it of real significance by limiting its use to non-military purposes.

Iraq declared Thursday that it now considers Japan to be a "hostile" nation, reacting to a Tokyo decision that could redirect Japanese diplomacy that for 45 years has focused mainly on economics. The Iraqi statement was provoked by Prime Minister Toshiki Kaifu's decision earlier in the day to supply military cargo aircraft for transportation of refugees in the Middle East and to add $9 billion to its financial support of the United States and its allies in the Persian Gulf War.

A former Japanese central banker close to top policy-makers predicted on Tuesday that Japan will continue supporting 20% of the estimated cost of the U.S.-led Persian Gulf War if the fighting lasts beyond March. That could amount to another $8 billion by June, on top of the $9 billion pledged last Thursday and $2 billion pledged last September, Yoshio Suzuki, vice chairman of the prestigious Nomura Research Institute and a former Bank of Japan director, told foreign correspondents.
