But yeah, who would have thought this was a good idea.
The same kind of idiots as those in Japan who visit Yasakuni Shrine to honor the war dead, like Tojo buried there, every year. It was a stupid idea, but no worse than the Japanese trying to paint themselves as victims of that war. MacArthur and the subsequent occupation command allowed the Japanese to soft-peddle their history in that war in a way that was never allowed to Germany.
