Idiot Savant has cracked open the bottle of anti-Americanism again with his dismissal of the
Of course, this was an unprovoked attack. The Empire of Japan had long been a peace loving nation, which respect the territorial integrity, human rights and the peaceful right of its neighbours to co-exist. Its government was recognised as such.
