Normally, in the civilized modern world, honoring war criminals who are responsible for slaughtering millions of civilians would be frowned upon.

    This is the difference between the Rising Sun and other military flags. Japanese Imperialism that terrorized the Asian continent is still very much alive. You need to realize the Rising Sun is not simply a symbol of the Japanese armed forces. It symbolizes the continuation of Japanese aggression since more than a century ago.

    ps. You dare compare the USMC emblem to the Rising Sun? Your grandfathers would be very ashamed of you.

    Edgewalker: the best use of your time would be to hunt down and harass the few remaining Japanese octogenarians who might have had anything to do with WWII.

    The rest of Japan (AKA the vast majority) is too fucking young to have had anything to do with it. Therefore, basic logic determines that trying to get any "apology" from them is a waste of fucking time.

    However, you're more than free to waste your days as you see fit.

    Naw, if they were intelligent, they'd laugh at your misunderstanding or your purposeful logical fallacy.

    Just out of curiosity, approximately percentage of modern Japanese fall into this category? Do they live in a certain area of Japan?

    I don't have a problem with Japan or the general Japanese population. I train a Japanese martial art, and I also have some Japanese friends who are pretty cool. But the extreme right side of Japan which try to cover up history and market symbols of hate? That I have a problem with.

    You said "perhaps this might help" and I pointed out it was outdated an therefore "no, not really."
