The land of Hawaii was criminally annexed by the McKinley regime-junta as a U.S. territory in 1898, so Japan's attack was a kind of tit for tat in defense of Hawaiians against a criminal occupying

<sarcasm>Yes that's right. The empire of Japan was FAMOUS for coming to the defense of underdogs.</sarcasm>

I don't recall my grandfather or any other relatives having had their property stolen by the Japanese government. He did have his gold confiscated by King Franklin, as well as other assets. It didn't stop with FDR, either.
Come to think of it, I don't know any American who ever had his property stolen by Saddam, either.

So theft is okay as long as "our" government does it?
