There's no question he will go...so he can apologize for our victory of WWII and to promise reparations for all of the Japanese deaths we caused. (*blech*)

“I’m sorry that the Communists did not get to play a role in the shaping of post-war Japan”

It’s a twofer: apology opportunity and excuse to avoid making a decision of AfPak.

for the record, they weren’t nuclear weapons, but atomic weapons.

Yes, of course, he’d say that if only we’d had a nuclear-free world back in 1945, the tragedies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki would never have had to happen.

Regards,

Have these two Japanese gentlemen ever been to Pearl Harbor?

There is considerable movement under the surface, to arrange it--we have heard from multiple, good sources here in Tokyo. If in fact he goes, he will indeed apologize for the bombings and project that it was the fault of the United States and perhaps even a war crime.

However, as you might expect, for the life of them, they dont want to get it out, so they are keeping it under wraps until the last minute--one will know when one gets wind of the State Dept. and White House advance men when they hit town, if they start poking around Hiroshima or Nagasaki, we will know they are serious about adding it to "Obama's Great Worldwide Apology Tour 2009". The scoundrels are, the political section of the US Embassy in Tokyo (with particular input and pressure by our current ambassador here), and on the other side of the town, the Democratic Party of Japan (new, ruling party). In between are various liberal/leftist disarmament groups, the mayors of Hiro and Naga, the governors as well from those two prefectures (probably). Everyone is keeping rather hush hush about it, for they fear a huge PR explosion in the USA from "extremist hawk-types" back in their face, such as they got with the revisionist Enola Gay exhibition at the Air/Space Museum in D.C. some years ago.

This one indeed merits watching. Some well placed Republican Senators, if they had the b*lls, on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee could get to the bottom of this one REAL quick, if you ask me.

Be careful what you wish for. We would of probably had a real World War III if not for atomic/nuclear weapons. As WW II showed, even without atomic weapons man has pretty good at killing each other. The Japs should now that considering what happened to Tokyo where more people dies in a single raid using incendiaries than at Hiroshima or Nagasaki.

I remember a cover story from Mad magazine where the Japanese Pilots were asking for compensation for the damage to their eardrums when the Arizona and the other targets at Pearl Harbour blew up.

It was MAD then but given the present Administration I'm not surprised!

Terrific. Now he can emulate Jon Stewart and call Harry Truman a war criminal.

What the POTUS should say, “This is what happens when you mess with the US.”

Even IF Japan apologized for their

Attack on the Chinese and the rape and murder of over a million
The Attack on Pearl Harbor,
The Slaughter of men, women and children in the Philippines,
Their merciless actions at Bataan,
and the many other atrocities visited upon innocent people all over the Pacific I WILL NEVER APOLOGIZE for ENDING their ATROCITIES with a nuclear device.

Harry Truman, the President who authorized the atomic bomb attacks on Japan
The last Democrat President who had balls.

While Ubama is over there, maybe he could visit Nanking.

My wife's Grandfather accepted the surrender of Nagasaki on his ship and he did not apologize.

Neither should Obama.

The thing is, the next one to pop will be on his watch and undoubtedly be his fault.

Can't make it to the Berlin Wall's demise celebration, but, if he can make America look bad, Obambi’s there.
