    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    so what is the statute of limitations on this kind of thing?

    The Japanese were bad, but they got a couple of nukes for thier sins, so move on Korea.

    When will graphic designers be free from the shackels of history?
    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    Given the history, probably about the same time Swastikas go back to being a peace symbol?

    For balance

    Do you not, as an Irishman, not bridle, on a deep seated level, to the Union flag?

    Stalin was just as brutal and barbarik as Hitler and Tojo, yet a gi with hammer and sycle motif would raise few eyebrows

    I don't know about you guys, but I find this really offensive. Really destroyed my respect for GSP.
    You forgot to mention the reason why I should give a rats ass.

    On a side note, if you wear a gi like that you'd damn well be some kind of badass to justify it. Otherwise, you'll look like a complete tool.

    No doubt. This is kind of like the difference between being a "wealthy eccentric" and a homeless crazy person; being someone notable gives you a lot more leeway to get away with things ordinary people can't.
