I'm torn on this one.
My first reaction to the article was that Hitler loved his dog too. Both Hitler & Tojo were leaders in their mass murder programs.
My second reaction was, maybe there is something to Al-Jiz's equating the Japanese in WW2 & the Islamics today. Both were murderous cults whose religious & cultural beliefs stressed that killing others was good. WW2 against Japan ended with two airplanes over Hiroshima & Nagasaki. Could Al-Jiz be recommending a similar solution today?
At the time of the Pearl Harbor attack, it is worth recalling the status of the so-called ABCD alliance:
America-- still strongly isolationist despite providence of war material to Britian, Russia and, to a lesser extent, China.
Britain-- hardly capable of launching an offensive, having barely survived Germany's onslaught tge year before.
China-- Engaged in a civil war of their own, temporarily on-hold due to the Japanese invasion.
Dutch -- An impotent little country under nazi occupation barely able to govern Indonesia.
Japan had the choice of turning northward (Russia) for its oil resources. Since dictators trust each other more than they do free countries, however, the choice was made to enter a non-agression pact with the Russians prior to launching the attack on Pearl Harbor-- the exact same M.O. Hitler followed prior to attacking Poland.
Naziism, Facism and Communism are all movements of the left. They disagree on little but methodology.
