Remember Pearl Harbor

Seventy-three years ago today the Empire of Japan attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor, and subsequently elsewhere including much less significant attacks on Alaska and California. Plus total invasions of islands the US controlled, including Guam & the Philippines. Many died, many others were enslaved.

To this day, places the Japanese occupied during the war have little liking for Japan and its people, except for a few older Taiwanese. Many envy Japan its riches, its postwar success; few love its people.
