Doing what is right even though it might not be popular.
Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi will make a direct pledge to President Bush of both money and troops for Iraq when the two leaders meet in Tokyo next week, Japanese government sources said Friday...

But with polls showing the Japanese people largely opposed to what would be Japan's most significant military operation since World War II -- and with Koizumi in the midst of a reelection campaign -- many observers have openly wondered whether he would press ahead with those plans.

Koizumi will settle that issue next week with a definitive yes, officials say.
