Rant picked up

My rant about Japan's war guilt has been picked up by ikjeld.com, a Japanese news website run by a Japan based journalist called Kjeld Duits. I'm rather chuffed. It was not really written as a professional piece, but there is something deep in the journo's psyche that wants everything they write to be read by the maximum number of people possible.

He has a really interesting article about Okinawa's experience in the war.

Update

It was picked up from ikjeld.com by Topix.net, an internet news aggregator. It was the second item in their Japan newsletter (the links don't work):
