Re: remember pearl harbor

So many people did forget and started sending the profits of Japanese cars to Japan, some saying it's okay because they own the assembly plants in the USA.

What’s that got to do with anything the wars been over for 70 years. If that happened in 1943 then I think it would be a problem but it’s 2019.

Japan has become a staunch American supporter. They do help pay for our troops stationed in Japan.
They are not quite the same people who attacked us in 1941.

I had an episode with a Japanese WWII guy in the 80's on a business trip. He talked about how Japan was going to conquer the world, WWII was only a setback. I informed him that this is the way wars start. He said that Japan would be able to take on anything in the future as they built up. He said that there were already groups trying to change Article 9 of the Japanese constitution. He pointed out some of the people dressed in black in a parade with megaphones marching in protest in Tokyo asking for the repeal of Article 9.

I informed him that if Japan started another war up we might have to come over and kick their ass a second time..

He was removed from being my escort by the company I was visiting. I never saw him again.

Right so let's just forget and forgive and send them more money and stop talking about Pearl Harbor history while they are buying up more and more property in the USA every day.

We can also do the same with the Twin Towers in a few years and start sending money to that group.

Japan's ability to compete in the world economy is a direct result of the ensuing occupation of the United States, and it's embracing of TQM practices put forth by Americans like W. Edwards Deming (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._Edw...#Work_in_Japan) . We reap what we sow.
I only know this because in the 90's, TQM was being implemented where I worked because it worked so well in Japan, but, alas, the company still moved everything to Mexico, and shut us down.

Re: remember pearl harbor

While they are becoming owners of more and more USA property every day.

Sorry that I still hold a grudge but when I hear "Pearl Harbor" I just remember loosing a couple of uncles at the age of four.

Re: remember pearl harbor

It's funny that I can't remember what I had for breakfast but I sure can remember well my mom and the family crying when I was four years old.

Re: remember pearl harbor

Dean: By no means do I want to belittle the sacrifice of your family and those of all other WWII Veterans. We're forever indebted to them. And I respect the Hell out of your generation, including those who refuse to buy Japanese automobiles to this day.

But we need to be cognizant of the following: from 1941 to 1945, Japan was the enemy and China was an ally. After the Communist Revolution swept through China, they ceased to become an ally. (Shockingly few people under 50 know who Mao was.) For decades, China kept to itself and was basically isolationist....until Jimmy Carter decided to give them a tour of our Country and things have been drastically different since then, however well meaning Jimmy may have been.

In 2019, Japan is now a staunch US ally and China, along with it's neighbor North Korea, are a serious threat....in various forms and degrees. Even Vietnam has the potential to become an ally as China gets bigger, bolder, and stronger. All of Asia needs to be seen as ally or potential ally when it comes to dealing with China and N. Korea today.

Disclaimer: I hate things made of Chinesium.....other than food and some women.

p.s. Dean: if you don't mind my asking, do you know what ships your uncles were stationed on?

Re: remember pearl harbor

I saw the movie Midway last night, and it was a pretty good movie. It emphasized a handful of men that made an impact on winning the war. Amazing true hero's!

A man from town here was at Pearl Harbor at the time of the attack. He held a strong Catholic belief, and went to church on the mainland that day, which saved his life. That made him an even stronger Catholic. He has passed now, but I still remember him talking about that day.

No, I don't remember that and all the family is gone now so nobody to ask
I'll be 82 Christmas day myself. (going to change my user name to "Grumpy Old Man") Get off my lawn

Another thing kinda funny is we were fighting with Germany and every single German that I have met in my life were great-friendly people.

I usually don't hold grudges.

BUT what are we going to do when they own so much of the USA and all our bases belong to them?

Re: remember pearl harbor

Don't get me wrong, Dean. You've got every right to hold and carry the grudge.

So, if you're 82 years young, did you get your '69 LeMans SS when new.....50 years ago?
