Chris Grieb Posted March 17, 2010 Share Posted March 17, 2010 ND,Interesting.O'Reilly's being his usual overbearing self. Burns waits for him to stop bloviating and then speaks in measured tones.Beyond the "internment" of the Japanese-Americans on the West Coast, there was war propaganda against the Japanese that I think you could fairly call racist. (Dr. Seuss was one of many who drew it, for a Left-wing publication no less.)But for Tom Hanks to attribute the bloodiness of Tarawa or Iwo Jima to American racism toward the Japanese is breathtakingly detached from reality.Robert CampbellThere was racism on the part of American but there was also racism by the Japanese. The Japanese were in many cases prepared to fight till the death.On Burn's point about nation building is somewhat true but there was a much more solid base than both Iraq and Afghanistan.Tom Hanks has done some very good work. I recently re watching his series " From the Earth to the Moon" and found the production qualities outstanding. I could say the same about "Brand of Brothers". I hope he will regret his dumb comparison. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
