So exactly what is the point of your table. Are you trying to convince yourself of something? Are you trying to convince us of something? Are you trying to make a point that you are a bigot? Are you trying to suggest that the Japanese are the most wonderful people on earth? I guess you should save that for all the Chinese that they raped and murdered during WWII.
