, japan was fighting the war against other embryo powers. and george tenet was one person who actually criticized the u.s. diplomacy in retrospect said that they should recognize japanese interests more than they did. the whole problem really stems from the fact that since the middle of the 19th century when japan was forcefully opened up by american gunships, the japanese saw their only chance to survive as an independent nation and not be colonized, much like western powers included. that meant having their own empire but he was a little late in the game. but one can sort of understand why it was felt that they had their rights and the europeans had their empire. >> i can understand, understandable but it's not an excuse either. and the fact that they had a period of relative peace and democratic experiment in the 1920s, and this whole hearted sort of attraction the middle internationalism of the league of nations, which japanese more than anybody else took it seriously, i think it's a shame that you had to go down that way. .. >> and so we are not triggering that and not ev
