I was thinking just today of the similarity of militaristic Japan and fascist Islam. Both sacrificed their young people in suicide for a pseudo-religion.
The Japanese fought to the death until they ran into the bomb. My uncle was in a POW camp, he said when he was captured the commander said they would be "Enemies forever" and he was only interested in how many Americans died.
One of the reasons the US is in such trouble is we have dumbed down our history, and don't teach it to our kids. Defeating the Islamofascists will require the same commitment that WWII did.
What worries me most are the parallels between China now and Japan in the thirties. The same expansionist aggressiveness on the one hand and the same complacency on the other.
While there are some similarities, these pukes don't measure up to the dedicated fanaticism Japan displayed during WW2.
