    In 1984 my dad bought my mom a brand new Chrysler New Yorker she wanted. He opened up the hood and saw the Mitsubishi three-diamond logo on the engine, slammed down the hood and angrily took it back. Told the Chrysler sales people they should feel ashamed because "those were the Jap bastards that made the goddamn kamikaze Zero."

    i love how the media tries to make it seem as though the US reactions to the attack were unjustified or excessive, and how the Japanese try to sweep Pearl Harbor under the rug. Even the US internment camps (which were inhumanely managed) were not an unreasonable reaction for the times. The worst is when the US gets attacked for deploying nukes against Nagasaki and Hiroshima as though it was an unjustified response.
