It seems the Neo-Cons are having their day in Japan as well and are resurrecting the kamikaze as a symbol in order to motivate Japanese youth and instill nationalistic pride. Kamikaze means â€œdivine windâ€ after the legendary typhoon that likely saved Japan from defeat in the 1281 invasion of China's Mongol emperor Kublai Khan. You might think that glorifying suicidal fanatics would be so last century but Tokyo's governor, Shintaro Ishihara has just written a movie doing just that and a southern Japanese museum dedicated to kamikaze receives 500,000 visitors a year. I understand Japan seems to be struggling to instill pride in its youth, not sure this is the way to go.
