Joshua Blakeney’s hard-hitting reporting as Press TV’s Canada correspondent earned him the ire of the Israel lobby – and a barely-veiled death threat from a terrorist group, the Jewish Defense League. Now he’s back with another controversial project: The new book Japan Bites Back: Documents Contextualizing Pearl Harbor.

“In September 2014 Joshua Blakeney undertook extensive archival research at the National Diet Library in Japan. The documents he retrieved, along with the other essays in this book, provide the “Japanese side of the argument” about the origins of the “clash of civilizations” that was WWII in Asia. The bolshevization of China, Western meddling in Asia, Soviet infiltration of the White House, U.S. expansionism in the Pacific, the anti-Japanese provocations which spawned the Pearl Harbor operation and Japan’s Pan-Asianist policies are all subjects explored in the book.”

    Great show! The British trained the carrier-based Japanese pilots pre WWII and gave them the Rolls-Royce engine technology to carry out the attack. Watch Japanese movies frequently, such as Kurosawa's. Fascinating culture. Once consulted for a Japanese trading company. Blakeney on the right track but looks like Abe moving the other way. -Tom M.
