Will the US ever even try to lay a finger on North Korea? NO!! Who do you think Japan is buying those patriot missles off of?! The ousting of Kim Jong
Ill would have been supported by the whole of asia (except maybe China) but for the US the dissappearance of KJI is just bad business it would mean S.
Korea would stop putting M-16s into the hands of every male that turns 16 and Japan wouldn't be buying Warships and would probably stop picking up
the tab for the US pacific fleet. Collapse of NK would also mean increased pressure from local governments in Japan. This would kick useless american
military bases off the island together with American Marines that only seem to rape children. Now I know that's a gross generalization about American
Marines. But they are no different from the Jihadists, they believe in something and they are professional killers that are trained to kill for that
belief. I bet you those terrorists aren't so evil when they go back to their families. "Oh but the Terrorists kill innocent civilians" please it's
not like the US doesn't kill enough civilians, and they don't even try.
Also the Japanese people are starting to wake up to the fact that the history they are taught is what the west and the rest of asia wants them to
believe. The defeatist attitude is the core of modern history taught in Japan, any move to change the curriculum is met with seathing protests from
China and S. Korea. This is because they understand the effect it has on the human mind to feel guilty. Every Japanese person after WW II has been
programed by the educational system (which was overseen by the US in it's infancy) to believe that Japan started the second world war and that it's
conquest of asia prior to the war was barbaric and unjustified. These things are far from the truth, the US is what forced the Japanese to open their
doors to trade and interaction (at gunpoint I might add) from there the Japanese decided that the only way to survive was to adopt western ways... Tom
Cruise... Last Samurai... As the country was being united and the industrial revolution well under way, Japan, being a small string of islands, needed
resources so it learned from the British, the Dutch, the Portugese, the Spanish, and the Americans. It started procurement of natural resources
through force. It just so happened that the west had already claimed Asia for themselves in what they called Spheres of Influence where they would
finance a puppet politician in their area of influence to basically do their bidding, a more culturally friendly colonial setup ... Well Japan didn't
know or didn't care, it just saw what these westerners had been doing the whole time that they've been cleaving eachother up (Fuedal era/Civil war)
and now that they were done they wanted a piece of the action.
What do gangsters do when another gang is on their turf? They go to war and so the US did.... Even before the first bombs were dropped on Pearl harbor
there were "Volunteer" US fighter pilots in China engaged in dogfights with the Japanese and since the US was Japans biggest supplier of oil at the
time an embargo was all that needed to be put in place before glowing coals turned into an all out firestorm...
Plus the US needed to find a way into the war in Europe, Japan was merely a catalyst... and to the united states was not a threat at all... The
strongest navy in the world is not so strong if you know what it's doing for the most part without them knowing that you know...
More than half a century after the war the Japanese prime minister catches heat for honoring the fallen soldiers that gave their lives for their
country. At the Yasukuni temple all Japanese soldiers who perishied in the fighting were honored including some individuals who were convicted for war
crimes. War crimes... such an oxymoron. This and other allegations such as attrocities said to be comitted by the Japanese military during their brief
asian excursion have now become ammunition for the countries which were embarassed especially China and S. Korea. They openely sow seeds of
anti-japanese sentiment in their education to instill a sort of dignity that has been lost as a result of the occupation. As a result Chinese and
Korean people are to this day still extremely patriotic while in Japan anybody with nearly the same amount of patriotism would be dissmissed as a
right-wing militarist fanatic. This coupled with an inability to use the military in anyway to influence foriegn policy has turned Japan into a money
tree. Repeatedly beating it will result in money falling from the branches.
Many people see the states across the world as allies and enemies... but in the end it's business as usual... everybody for himself... everybody
else is a friend through benefit and a foe in direct competition... Can you smell the carbon monoxide and burning flesh? Ahh the wonderful scent of
