A western-biased but still worthwhile overview of Japan's behaviour from the late 1800s to WWII. The insane brutality and demented
hubris are truly exceptional.
Russia should never concede to Japanese revisionist BS. The four "disputed" islands were won fair and square. If Japan wanted to
keep them it should not have been an aggressor nation. Losers don't get to decide the punishment when it comes to wars. And
Japan did not have righteousness on its side during any of its wars.
The USSR made a serious mistake by not seizing Hokkaido. Japanese "ownership" of this island only dates from the first half of the 1800s.
Japan should have been punished much more harshly for its war criminality. No Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not enough. The number
of civilians killed by Japan's American bosses pales compared to the number of civilians that got butchered by the Japanese in China.
Also, the current attitude of North Korea to Japan is fully legitimate. Japan is not some victim of North Korea. Korea experienced
Japanese barbarism first hand. Thanks to America, justice was never done.
