Tom Hanks Needs to Know
Tom Hanks claims that the War against Japan was due to "racism".
He is correct.
Except it was JAPANESE racism that was at the heart of it.
The belief in the deity of the Emperor, and the superiority of the Japanese Race that gave them divine right to rule over all the lesser folk of Asia. This belief was fully demonstrated in China, The Philippines and else where with local populations either exterminated for fun by bayonet and sword, or used as slave labour.
Western liberals may feel bad about the Atomic bombs but many Asians feel we didn't drop enough of them on the Japanese for what they did.
