    Japan still has a pretty formidible defense force and they are once again (this time pretty seriously) talking of scrapping the article in the constitution regarding its armed forces in response to China's buildup and incursions into Japanese territorial and EEZ waters...

    Wonder what the American military leadership thinks about that. Wonder how most Japanese people view MacArthur nowadays. He did a good job in reconstruction but I never really liked the guy he was a complete asshole.

    From my conversations with Japanese, he is generally well respected, especially by those who are older. They generally regard him as tough in war but generous in victory...

    I have a friend who's Japanese and from my impression it's true they generally respect him, and deplore the militaristic culture under the imperialist leadership and the role he played in that turnaround and helping to rebuild Japan. However George C. Marshall is my favorite American general.

    I actually have a tremendous amount of respect for Robert E. Lee even though I hail from the North...

    not that i support random violence or theft of property, but i think a bit of balancing is needed here. all of these somali pirating organization got their start in the early nineties after their government fell. there was no one there to protect their shores from invaders and almost suddenly european ships came by and started dumping nuclear waste off the shore of somalia. the first so called pirates, were just a few guys in speed boats with automatic weapons shooting at atomic litterers who were poisoning the pirates' wives and children. but don't worry, i'm sure while nato patrols to make sure no vigilante somalis protect their shore they'll also make sure no one is taking advantage of the situation and dumping their toxic garbage there.

    Good point. I think a lot of people easily forget this history. Of course, it doesn't excuse what is going on now with their increasing reach into the Indian Ocean, but it is important to understand the historical context.

    i don't know what pisses me off more, that a packer fan enjoys roe, or that roe appeals to a packer fan.
