Sensei, With a hydraulic failure, depending on the aircraft and indicated failure, the pilot may choose not to dump fuel. A hydraulic failure is a particularly dangerous and often progressive condition in which most pilots will choose to land immediately rather than risk losing control of the aircraft if the fault progresses.

Not a PR stunt. Funashi is a PR stunt.

I don't exactly pity the fool who bought Microsoft stock. If you bought $10,000 of its stock in 1985, it would be worth $3,000,000 now.

source: my uncle, who bought $100,000 worth in 1985.

Dear volland, you have made some interesting points, but more importantly, you have discredited your opinion quite considerably by baseless and flat out wrong statements. The United States did not make the abandonment of any historical revisionism a condition of aid following the unconditional surrender of Germany and Japan. Also, I challenge you to prove any connection between Kurosawa being fired as anything more than a movie studio fearful of losing money from bad publicity.

Secondly, I will ask you the same question, "Was Hawaii part of the US when it was attacked?" You claim historical truth as a casualty of of ignorance. But in order to make this claim you have to get the facts correct, which you haven't

Also please explain what is so ridiculous about the image that Japan has of itself?

Thank you for contributing to the conversation!
