Do you know Peleliu Island in the Pacific Ocean? It's one of the islands which belong to the Archipelago country of Palau, which is the ultimate destination of scuba divers. The island is well-known also as the place of fierce fighting between the U.S. and Japan during the Greater East Asian War. The Ten-noh, or the Priest King, or the Emperor of Japan along with his wife, made a commemorative visit to the island today.
Japanese students have been educated under the War Guilt Information Program, WGIP. That is, they have been taught that Japan used to be a rogue country and gave too much agonizing suffering for words to people whom it had ruled. Even now, lots of people believe it and only a few people know that it was simply one of the plots of McArthur.
By the way, do you see how diligently the Palau people did the preparation for welcoming Ten-noh? The domestic TV reporter and other foreign correspondents showed lots of people working for a great reception. I felt a strong affinity toward Japan among them. Japan had ruled the Palau people once. However, they show even now an affinity toward Japan. Their national flag also indicates the intensity of the affinity. What on earth did Japan do for Palau? Japan was a ruler and the Palau people were once subject people.

Chester William Nimitz:
Tourists from every country who visit this island should be told how courageous and patriotic were the Japanese soldiers who all died defending this island.
