What Americans think of Japan? Americans are really clueless

Postby zboy1 » February 23rd, 2013, 8:07 am

And we're supposed to be world's superpower and the policeman of the world? When Americans think that Africa is near Japan, or that Kim Jong Ill is Japanese, or that China and Korea were the two countries nuked in WW2, we're in a whole lot of trouble as a country.

Especially if you pick dumb-asses on the beach to interview...
At any rate, there are a lot of folks out there who are just skin-covered broccoli, the
default product of much of the US educational system.

They are typical ignorant americans who know nothing about the world and really believe that America is the center of the universe. There needs to be a mass distribution of a very rare book in america. THE ATLAS

I thought the guy in the beginning who mentioned Samurai Spirit and Warrior Spirit was actually okay. At least he knew that Japan was an island nation!
