The interesting thing about revisionism is, as you say, that so
much of it goes on already. John Copeland over lunch the other day was
outraged over a situation where new Japanese textbooks are being
introduced indicating that the rape of Nanking never happened, and that
the bombing of Pearl Harbor was in retaliation for Hiroshima.
I'm constantly amazed....
