Japan's cabinet has approved a landmark change in security policy, easing constitutional constraints that have kept its military forces from fighting overseas since World War II. On Tuesday, the cabinet endorsed a reinterpretation of the country's constitution that will allow the military to help defend allies and others "in a close relationship" with Japan under what is known as "collective self-defense."
