Every morning for the last three months, Yuko Tojo has prayed at a war shrine for Japan's fallen soldiers including her grandfather, Gen. Hideki Tojo, the executed World War II premier who ordered the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.
Yuko, 68, will fight her own battle in July, when she competes as an independent in elections for parliament's upper house. An ultra-nationalist, her mission is to restore Japan's honor by scrapping its pacifist constitution and enacting a full-fledged military, giving the country the clout she says it deserves.
"I was born as Hideki Tojo's granddaughter, and as a Japanese national. I cannot see Japan go on like this, with no confidence or pride," Tojo told The Associated Press. "I do not think the war dead gave their lives for a country like this."

At 68, perhaps that is the final nail needed in the coffin of the political career of this apologist.
This is why I reject all of the moral relativism that is displayed in movies.
For example, Clint Eastwood's movie glorifying the Japanese on Iwo Jima.
These were men who fought for a evil and vicious system that needed to be killed.
I don't want to know about their love letters and personal 'feelings'.
They certainly did not care about our POW's who they were planning on murdering before we dropped the bomb (and did murder many).
That is also why I do not want to hear about the excuses given by Ron Paul about why Islam 'hates us'.
These are quotes from 'Imperial Japan:
Professor T. Tomaki, Kyoto Imperial University, from a radio speech during February of 1942: Japan is the foundation and the axis of the world. The world must be unified around Japan. Without unity there will be no peace. When the world is unified under one power, then there will be eternal peace. Japan is the ruling nation of the world.
Same person, on Tokyo Radio, also in February of 1942: There is a spitefulness in the Europeans and Americans. This, too, is a reason that Europeans and Americans should be annihilated.
Professor Tokuyomi Sanya, of Kyoto Imperial University, May, 1942: We are striving to carry out our sacred mission of destroying America and Britain.
Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, Jan. 24th, 1941: I am looking forward to dictating peace to the United States in the White House at Washington.
Tadahika Inaizumi, Oct. 12th, 1942: ...the Emperor of Japan is the Emperor not only of Japan but also of all the races of the world.
Prince Konoye, July 7th, 1938, in the New York Times: Japan does not want an inch of Chinese territory.
Top officials in both Nazi Germany & Imperial Japan had the same demented warlike mindset on numerous issues, even rabid Anti-Semitism:
Teiichi Muto, 1939: They do not realize that the Jewish policies of capitalism, communism and democracy, are fundamentally such that they and our national structure cannot survive together.
Koshi Akarike, 1939: All the world's newspapers, in London or New York, whether large or small, aer without exception under control of the Jews.
Tokyo Radio, July 25th, 1943: The present war of enormous tribulations is nothing but the machination of the Hebrews who are trying to achieve their aim of uncontested materialistic domination.
Admiral Nomura, June 22nd, 1943: Japan is invincible.
Yes, and they were also using human beings to test germ warfare.
Executed war criminal.
