Dissertation Writers: The U.S. goal in Japan was to stop the militarization of of the national forces and bring tranquility to the Japanese economy.
Japan after WW2 would have a tough road ahead. At the time Korea and Taiwan were colonies that helped to Japan alive and well but were disarmed and independent of Japan after U.S. intervention in Japanese affairs. This was all after the Potsdam declaration were the Allies asked Japan for unconditional surrender which eventually came to be in August of 1945. The U.S. goal in Japan was to stop the militarization of of the national forces and bring tranquility to the Japanese economy. After many years Japan would be required to help the U.S. and the UN in the Korean war in a way to almost prove their worth and loyalty. Looking a few years after in this post war era, Japan started to westernize and have American films and music in their society. Japanese media also became international with Mangas, martial arts, and animes. To a person who was not arrived and is not informed deeply on this subject, I can attest to complete ignorance on this subject of retribution. What I mean by that is no one feels that Japan owes the United States or any other country anything. This statement may sound ridiculous but its not that far fetch considering how Germans still feel ashamed about what their ancestors did 70 years ago. They still carry the weights of the past while Japan flies like a feather. This is not a criticism but merely an observation.
