It should be noted that Japan was kind of on Germany's side in the war, kind of. Plus, I doubt they dwell too much on exactly why the Nazis are so hatted. At least, I hope they don't know all the details. <-<
I feel personally Japan just sided with the people they thought were going to win but had no shits to give on their personal politics, just an excuse to attempt to be the biggest dick in the room. And they had a damn good opening shot on Pearl Harbor. I may not agree with their choice of "allies" or their methods but you gotta respect the balls it takes to plan and execute such an attack. I know there were other political and economic pressures, but they picked the biggest target, and delivered the world's loudest bitchslap with effective ease. They only failed because they missed the US carriers and didn't follow up with any coordinated strikes on other military targets. I guess their egos made them think they'd already won and when the US mobilized into the Pacific, Japan realized it wasn't going to be that easy. Still they held their own damn well for a long time.
Even Germany had a great start to the war, but made too many mistakes by having way too many fronts to attack and defend. Pissing off Russia wasn't smart either.
I have an appreciation for bold tactics, even if I am disgusted with the social practices of the Germans.
But back OT, I'll never understand people who identify with the Nazi ideals. Its so ludicrous.
