Recently discovered historical documents as well as popular films of the time show the war was very unpopular in Japan. Desertion and student protests were hidden from the world. The vast majority of Japanese hold the same ideals and ethics as the rest of the world. However every country suffers with anicient revisionist morons who have worked to make connections to gain power in government and industry and influence national policy and opinion. These men full of arrogance and pride represent a minority opinion held by ignorant uneducated people who don't understand the modern world and fear and hate it. These throwbacks will die off and lose power and influence. Meanwhile they serve as a reminder of how far we have come, and comedy fodder.
