English[edit]

Can someone who speaks english as a native tongue please work on this article? I don't have time to correct EACH MISTAKE in this article, but the sentence structure and grammar is atrocious.Dragonnas (talk) 20:51, 21 April 2008 (UTC)

English, when being referred to as a language is a proper noun. As such, it should be capitalized.

You erroneously used the word atrocious to describe the sentence structure and grammar in this article. Other than two or three words that should not have been capitalized and it's instead of its, the whole article was intelligible right up to March, 2008. I understood the whole article; that is what matters to me.

Are you sure that those atrocious sentence structure and grammar were not done by native English speakers?IsaLang (talk) 11:58, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

Japanese Motives During World War II[edit]

The claims made in the article about how Japan came to attack U.S. forces in the Philippines is blatantly absurd. While the Japanese were hardly benevolent or benign, they were certainly not driven by a belief that "all Asian lands" somehow belonged to Japan. That's propaganda, and a particularly bad one at that. Somebody should write more factually on Japan's strategic rivalry with the United States in the Pacific and the evolution of its strategy in case of a war--and where in that strategy Philippines fit in.128.196.23.228 (talk) 21:52, 10 July 2008 (UTC)

removing POV tag with no active discussion per Template:POV[edit]

I've removed an old neutrality tag from this page that appears to have no active discussion per the instructions at Template:POV:

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. Remove this template whenever:
  1. There is consensus on the talkpage or the NPOV Noticeboard that the issue has been resolved
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

Since there's no evidence of ongoing discussion, I'm removing the tag for now. If discussion is continuing and I've failed to see it, however, please feel free to restore the template and continue to address the issues. Thanks to everybody working on this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 13:30, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

All the lands of Asia?[edit]

In the section on the Japanese decision to attack it is stated, without providing a source, that Japan "viewed all the lands of Asia to be the rightful property of the Imperial Japanese Government and the Emperor" and that "central to the Japanese goals was the taking of all Asian lands." This would seem to be extraordinary if true (all the lands of Asia, right up to the Bosphorus and the Urals?); if Japanese policy-makers in fact held such ambitions it needs to be sourced. 850 C (talk) 14:04, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
