In the Case of War there apparently was such a feeling and the mightier nation won the War. Second reason Given is that the War was their own fault. They explain that it was never even from the outset a popular War with the people and that they were led into it by militarists and expansionist who had gained Power.

They Are grateful. Americans were Friendly from the outset even As occupation its and the japanese reciprocated that attitude. Nevertheless there a no de Fience evident to americans. They Are polite Friendly industrious hard working people who have taken the american Aid and put it to Good use. They re inventive and what they can to invent they can copy.
