Unfortunately for the Japanese, the German people have shown extreme
sensitivity towards their Nazi past - actively learning about it in
school and being timid about patriotism in general. Maybe they set
the bar too high.
This 2-ch thread on anti-Japanese statements in the foreign media picks at my article on Japanese war guilt as "lines from the typical Japanese leftist script = ignorant Western historical view." The person also disapproves of my calling Japan a Confucian bureaucracy. (Confucianism is Chinese, you lamestain!)
Update 8/11/06: Feedback loop as 2-ch folk find that I linked back to them. Now they are posting my biographical details. Apparently, I "look like an arab."
