Obviously, I don’t think that we should keep holding Japan’s role in WWII against them. However, I do think that we should maybe think long and hard before we add them to the Security council. I don’t know how popular this will be as a proposition to the US, and I don’t even know what to think about it. But I do think it’s a big deal, if we go expanding the security council. If, as expected, Toyota is the #1 auto maker for 2007, and the Japan gets into our club, I expect a bit of resentment from some Americans. I also would think that as long as we are expanding the S.C., India and Germany might want on too. And frankly, we can’t have too many countries holding the veto, it might make the UN slow to act and overly bureaucratic. Oh wait…
