Vietnam-USA: Go to Vietnam
If you are American, maybe you expect Vietnamese people will hate us. In reality, you will be welcomed by Vietnamese. The war is over. The Vietnamese know this, and now more Americans should go to Vietnam and see for themselves. You will enjoy it.
Please see this article about a refugee family who became Americans:

Japanese Emperor Honoring US and Japanese War Dead
Thank you, Sir:
Remarks by His Majesty the Emperor of Japan at the Time of Their Majesties’ Departure for the Republic of Palau
April 8, 2015
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, which brought fierce fighting to various parts of the Pacific Ocean, resulting in the loss of countless lives. Our thought go out to all those who went to the battlefields to defend their countries, never to return home.
In this milestone year, reflecting upon those many people who fell in battle, we will visit the Republic of Palau.
The Republic of Palau, along with the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of the Marshall Islands, was a German colony up through World War Ｉ. After that war, the Treaty of Versailles and the decision of the League of Nations placed those territories under the mandate of Japan. Palau became the site of Japan’s South Seas Agency, and many people emigrated there from Japan. By around 1935, more than 50,000 Japanese nationals－a number greater than the native population－had come to live on those islands.
In 1944, the year before the end of the war, fierce battles took place in the region, and Japanese forces fought to their deaths on many islands. The island of Peleliu, which we will visit on this trip, was one of those islands. Some 10,000 Japanese soldiers and 1,700 American soldiers lost their lives there. We believe that we must never forget that those beautiful islands in the Pacific Ocean have such a tragic history.
It is sincere hope that our visit to the Republic of Palau will contribute to the further development of the friendly cooperative relations that our nations have forged so far. While we are there, we will mourn and pay tribute to both the Japanese and Americans who perished in the region. At the same time, taking this opportunity, we wish to offer our heartfelt thanks to His Excellency the President and all the people of Palau, for, although they suffered the ravages of war themselves, the people of Palau worked hard after the war to care for the memorial cenotaphs and cemeteries and to collect the remains of the fallen.
We are deeply grateful that during our stay there, Their Excellencies the Presidents and First Ladies of the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of the Marshall Islands will also visit the Republic of Palau, joining His Excellency the President and the First Lady of the Republic of Palau on our trip to Peleliu.
Finally, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to all those who worked so hard to make this visit possible.

"Colombian Report: U.S. Troops Raped 54 Girls"
More propaganda. Japanese are dealing with similar lies about sex-slaves.

Celebration for Chinese Communists: Disgusting at Lincoln Center -
Lincoln Center should be shamed for this. The Chinese communists killed and starved to death more people than the Nazis. That is right. Chinese communists actually outdid the depravity known as the Holocaust.
What will Lincoln Center hold next? A Nazi parade?

Japanese Tourists at the Comfort Women Statue in Glendale, California
I made this photograph on 30 September 2014. In the middle of the photograph wearing the black and white striped shirt is Phyllis Kim. Phyllis gave the talk at the statue through an interpreter. (English to Japanese.) Phyllis is Korean and works for KAFCA -- the Korean American Forum of California.
Several people in the group appeared to be Japanese journalists. One of the Japanese in the group said they came to Glendale after seeing an advertisement in the Akahata. (Communist paper.)
Interestingly, two men from Glendale who may have been only 120 meters away, never heard of this statue. I had asked them for directions to the statue and they had no idea what I was talking about. Seems like everyone in Japan has heard of the statue in Glendale, yet two men from Glendale never heard of it.
It is tempting to fly back over there and rip this statue out of the ground.
On the plaque beside the statue is listed all the countries who allegedly have grievances with Japan. One of those listed is Thailand. This is false. Thailand has no grievance with Japan. In fact, Thailand and Japan were allies in World War II and still today share a close bond.
I am looking at this photograph and imagining how to wrap the chain to rip the statue out of the ground. Koreans and Chinese need to keep their hatred at home. We do not want it in America.

"China Is Urged to Confront Its Own History"
Our efforts are working. The accusing finger that China points at Japan is pointing back to the horrific truth that is China. China has been and is the home of the greatest war criminals in human history. Even Nazis did not reach the level of Chinese crimes against humanity.
