Asked in Japan in WW2
What was japan regime monorchy in the 1939?
The Monarch, Emperor Hirohito, was only a figurehead for the totalitarian government actually controlled by the Japanese Army. The people had been told for generations that the Japanese Emperor was god-like. The population revered the Emperor greatly, however by 1939, the Japanese Army was the real power in Japan.
Asked in Libya
Why are the people in Libya protesting?
Reportedly, they are protesting the dictatorial regime of Ghaddafi, the mad dog who's been the leader of the Lybian revolution for the last forty two years. They want him out and gone so that they can build a democratic society. I am not quick to endorse their protest, however, as it seems to be a spill-over effect from what happened in Tunisia and Egypt. It would interesting to see if Ghadaffi could weather the storm and stay in power. Given his record of brutality in the past, I would not be surprised that he massacres his way to staying in power.

Asked in Battle of Midway
Why is the Battle of Midway famous?
It was decisive. Yes, it was. And what made it important was that the US Carrier Fleet was able to overcome the challenge of the Japanese in the Pacific. The Japanese navy was extremely powerful and had they been able to dominate the skies over the ocean then their Battleships could have been brought to bear, but if the US was dominant in the sky then this would neutralise the power of the Japanese fleet. The Japanese had shown very directly the power of the bomber over unescorted battleships by sinking HMS Prince of Wales & HMS Repulse, 2 of Britains front line Battleships.
Asked in World War 2
Why were Japanese Americans discriminated after World War 2?
First of all, they were Japanese, not Japanese Americans. It's redundant. A lot of people harbored anger towards all Japanese people, even those who were American citizens. Although they shouldn't have thought that way since almost all of the Japanese in America were loyal to America during and after WWII, some people were still just mad. I guess they thought they should be mad at everyone that was Japanese, even though they should have been mad at Japan, not people that had lived in the U.S. before the war even started.
