Abe Lincoln? Well, if that don't beat all. I wish I could see how it all turns out. I bet in the next world, he's smiling at this.

Well, he would learn that being POTUS is somewhat like being the King on a chessboard. Both powerful & impotent at the same time. After all, the other two branches of government can be quite jealous of their pieces of the pie.

Maybe Zamperini's captors were unable to forgive themselves? Letting someone off the hook is often easier than doing as much for yourselves.

Meiyouwenti --- There was an effort to take Japanese prisoners at first But their unfortunate habit of suicide outright, or waiting to take at least one American with them, tended to discourage the practice. Then too, finding American & other Allied soldiers tortured to death was a poor way to encourage the taking of Japanese prisoners. Now from time to time, Japanese soldiers did surrender, a few at first, but more towards the end. They were treated properly for the most part, though I imagine that, as in "Letters from Iwo Jima," attempts to give up were met with a bullet but I refer you to the above Japanese practice of false surrender. It was a hard & bitter war but Japan made it far harder than it had to be.

I don't think the Donald is angry. I think he's an arrogant, rude bully who is having fun pandering to people's frustrations or enraging others. Of course, after the last GOP debate, he might not be having quite as much fun as he'd like, since the other kids on the playground all got together & pushed back. Bullies hate when that happens. It hurts their feelings.

The Germans have manned up & taken ownership of their mistakes. Japan has not. It's a damn shame & a stain on the character of this otherwise extraordinary ancient culture.

Dialect done, done right, is funny. It's not racist. It's just teasing. Now, as I don't speak Japanese a lot of this bit went over my head but I liked the idea. It made me smile. So well done Ishii-san.
