Even though a head-on conflict between the United States and Iran was averted, the standoff between Washington and Tehran should give Japan much to think about. Can Japan respond quickly enough to evacuate Japanese citizens in an area where tension is quickly escalating, especially when Japan has minimal ability to control the pace of escalation? It will be hard enough for Japan to cope with a flashpoint situation unfolding in Japan's neighborhood, such as U.S.-China tension over Taiwan or the Korean Peninsula.
