"I wanted to be very sensitive to the Japanese-American community," Hahn said. "Dec. 7 is a tough day, especially for the second and third generations of Japanese-Americans. Why do we want to do something that makes it more difficult?"

This is the problem with Hypenated-Americans. If they are Americans, they should have no problem with a film that shows an attack on America by Imperial Japan. If they are Japanese, then who cares if their feelings are hurt. This is absolutely ridiculous. Refusing to allow WWII veterans to commemorate the attack on Pearl Harbor is a disgrace.

As for any "Japanese-Americans" who might be offended, decide which side of the hypen you wish to live on and go there. And remember, when you disrespect these vets, you are also disrespecting those fine Americans who served in the 442d Regimental Combat Team - which stormed Monte Casino. I'll bet those Americans of Japanese heritage wouldn't have a problem with showing Tora, Tora, Tora on December 7th.
