SuperNinjaToad: Dr Dreidel: My dad and I were just talking about Southeast Asia the other day (I have no idea why). Apparently, in Korean textbooks, the two bombs the US dropped on Japan are labeled "a good start".

// Koreans hate the Japanese, is what I gather

Most Westerners don't realized that the brutality, rape, torture and mass murders committed by the Imperial Japanese Army on the entire Asian continent durring WW II made the Holocaust looked like a walk in the park.

Not surprisingly Hollywood are also more partial to making movies that focuses more on the atrocities of the German on the European/Jewish side of the conflict than it does the Asian/Pacific campaign done by the Japanese.



A lot of the outrage in Korea today stems from the fact that Japan has never acknowledged, much less apologized for, these war crimes, and some of the worst war criminals are paid respect even today.  It would be as if German textbooks made no mention of concentration camps, and the Chancellor of Germany laid flowers on Herman Goering's grave once a year.

This doesn't make sense. Everyone knows that only white men can be racist.

Dr Dreidel: Gergesa: Frozboz: The Chinese disdain for Japanese is pretty high these days.  A cousin of mine living in China told me during that recent brush-up over the disputed islands between the two countries, anything Japanese just wasn't welcome in his city.  Even cars and motorcycles would get vandalized unless the owner would paste a Chinese flag over the Honda or Toyota emblem.  Crazy.

He also tells stories about what the school teach their kids about Japan - how the brave Chinese beat back Japanese aggression in WW2 (with no mention of the US) and how Japan begged China not to invade and conquer.  Good stuff.

Honestly this wouldn't surprise me.  I'm not sure what their story for Hiroshima and Nagasaki is but I wager it reads something like "The Japanese imperialists dogs were fighting so hard against our brave soldiers the Americans were able to slip through and hit them with atomic bombs just as secretly planned."

Something like that anyway.

Back about 10 years ago, America renamed French fries freedom fries. In some northwestern states you see outright hostility towards Canadians from just across the border in Alberta or Saskatchewan because Canada refused to participate in the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Dickheadeness isn't excluse subby.

China's belligerence over the South China Sea was the best thing to happen to America's reputation among non-China nations there.

China believes that everything there that is not blatently in other people's territorial waters belongs to China.

Japanese establishments are much more discreet. They simply ban all foreigners.
