Asia for Asians

The question:

is that military power is a legitimate means of

Meanwhile, the Japanese are asking themselves:

What are they doing here in the first place?

The last Dutch ruler of East Indies

Plan of Attack

Asia for Asians!

Not quite.

Turns out Japan's new economic society was, in fact,

more of the colonial same, but with Japanese flair.
