Easy fix on skipping out on Bill, during the olympics just post sign in English and Japanese cash only. Japanese will frown, but it’s the only way. No tab. Locals will get used to it. It’s a hassle, but you won’t have someone skimping out on a tab. Had a bar for 3 years and always did it that way. Worked fine.

If japan bought the oil, regardless of who’s country flag is transporting it, they have a right to defend what is theirs. That I believe would fall under the constitution, self defense for property. Why not? Like protecting your land from a hostile takeover, same thing.

The military were the only ones telling civilians to take their lives so that they wouldn't be taken prisoners. They told the civilians that the Americans would rape all women and kill the children. The emperor had no say in what actually happened on the battlefield. The Japanese society didn't actually hear his voice till the end of the war.
