Why do any sites bother? Just confuses the Japanese, who are taught a COMPLETELY whitewashed version of their role in WWII.
Believe it or not, most of them believe that they went to war because the Allies were blockading their access to oil just to be mean. NO mention is made of their planned Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere or their occupation, rape, and pillage of Manchuria (China) or Korea.

So very true. A business acquaintance of mine is married to a Japanese woman and she once told me that she was shocked and at first, did not believe what she learned when she first moved to the US in the late 50's. She said that she only began to accept the truth about WWII, nearly five years later, after she did a lot of her own research, including reading at least 10 history books from various sources, including Europe and Australia (she initially thought that US history books were the ones that were biased). The last time that I saw her, several years ago, she told me that her younger brother, who still lives in Japan, thinks that she has been brainwashed by the Americans and still believes the Japanese cleansed version.
Indeed, from what I can tell, most Japanese are still taught today, that they entered WWII because Americans were blockading them for no reason.
Note: I don't want anyone to think that I have no respect for the Japanese military men who prosecuted the rest of the war. Some of them exhibited extreme bravery. I just have no respect for the type of cowards who perpetrated the attack on Pearl Harbor.
