    Default usa should drop one more bomb on japan to make a point

    TOKYO - JAPAN'S sacked air force commander on Tuesday defended his view of the country's militarist past and called for an overhaul of the pacifist constitution.

    'I do not think I was wrong in any way,' said former general Toshio Tamogami, who was fired last month after writing an essay in which he denied the country was an aggressor in World War II.

    The essay 'was necessary in order for Japan to head in the right direction', he said during a parliamentary hearing in which he was harshly criticised by opposition lawmakers who said his views were a challenge to the legislature.

    'Freedom of speech should be guaranteed, even for Self Defence Force personnel,' Mr Tamogami responded, using the official name for Japan's military.

    'Would it be a democracy if public discourse is suppressed?' Mr Tanogami said Japan should amend its constitution, which bans the use of force as a way to resolve international conflicts, because views are currently divided on how to defend the country.

    The government has insisted that the essay was contrary to its official views.

    But Mr Ichiro Ozawa, head of the main opposition Democratic Party of Japan, said the government was aware of Mr Tamogami's views before he wrote the essay.

    'The government appointed him (as air force chief) and hastily forced him to retire after his thoughts came to the fore,' Mr Ozawa told reporters, saying he would challenge the government on the issue.

    China, the two Koreas and other Asian nations still have searing memories of Japan's aggression and colonial rule. China was quick to voice 'strong indignation' over the comments.

    Mr Tamogami wrote in the essay that many Asian countries 'take a positive view' of Japan's past militarism, seeing Tokyo as a bulwark against Western imperialism.

    'It is certainly a false accusation to say that our country was an aggressor nation,' he wrote.

    The scandal came at a bad time for Prime Minister Taro Aso, who criticised Mr Tamogami's remarks but has himself previously caused controversy by defending aspects of Japanese colonialism.

    Prime Minister Taro Aso, who has himself caused controversy by defending aspects of Japanese colonialism, repeated his view that the essay was 'inappropriate' for a senior official in Mr Tanogami's position.

    'Everyone has the right to freedom of expression as long as they are Japanese,' Mr Aso told reporters. 'But his remarks were inappropriate for someone in the position of a chief of staff in Japan under civilian control.' -- AFP

    While Germany jails those that hails their militarist past, whereas Japan just merely sacked them. This shows that Japan has never repented or regretted their aggressor role AT ALL !!!

    What the f88k is Japan doing ?

    Germany is a cheap prostitute lying country. They are still very nationalistic and discriminatory. They will become Nazis anytime but will just change names for it. Japan and Germany are equally shit. But the currency and financial nuclear bombs already dropped will fuck Japan totally this time. Hollowing out of the local and national economy is so bad, it is inconceivable of boosting domestic consumption. They are like more hygenic species of another race that likes to wear all their wealth on themselves. Very asset rich, cash poor as well. Everyone banking on a pokkai pension payout.

    Probably, but they showed the world that they have truly repented and at least, their actions have not suggested hypocrisy.
