Ethnocentricity played a huge role during imperialism in the 18th and 19th centuries because it caused nationalism to emerge in the native lands. This was demonstrated in the movie when the Americans trained the Imperial Army, as the time went on and the emperor saw the good in the Samurai, he felt guilty that his view of Japan had become clouded and caused their extinction. Soon after, the emperor terminated the contract with the United States because he came to realize that the Japanese were beginning to lose their traditional culture. The emperor said, "‘I have dreamed of a unified Japan.
They were bound to a specific lord, or daimyo, and also bound to their communities by duty and honor. This code of honor is known as Bushido, and comes from the word bush, which means “warrior.” The Japanese word do means “the way.” So Bushido means, “the way of the warrior.” This code evolved from an earlier period when samurais were archers and horsemen.
The Executive Order 9066, signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, authorized for land to be established as military zones for the deportation of Japanese Americans into internment camps. The deportation of Japanese Americans was a pusillanimous act ridden by the fear that Japanese American people would act a saboteurs for the Japanese government. Without concrete evidence, innocent lives were led astray solely because of their Japanese ancestry. Japanese Americans were surmised as still remaining undeniably loyal to their ancestral home instead of America, despite that many Japanese Americans were still regarded as “aliens” in the first place. The federal government [at the time] claimed it was merely out of concern for America’s safety

This is not true. Taiwan has had a democratic government that is independent of China. This misconception is very disrespectful to individuals and the whole nation. The issue of the relationship between Taiwan and China often times leads to heated discussions and violent fights between people from two places.
The temporary disappearance became a pretext for Japan to launch an attack on the city of Beijing followed by a full-scale invasion of Northern China. The Chinese Army’s ill equipment favoured the quick Japanese military advance southwards to Shanghai. After the conquest of the “Chinese New York”, the Japanese army marched northwest towards the Nationalist capital of China, Nanjing, where Chiang Kaishek’s Government was located. Their intention was both to occupy strategic locations and to demonstrate their superiority over the Chinese Nationalists “[a] force they considered pernicious and alien to their vision of East Asia’s future.” The siege of the Chinese cities required various months of bloody fighting, more than what
In the Pacific Theatre of World War II, Prisoner-of-war camps were a common occurrence. Japan and the United States had POW camps, but the most infamous were those of the Japanese. Japanese POW camps were governed by the country’s military officials, with no international laws being applied to the system. Prisoner-of-war camps were meant to be a place for enemy soldiers to be abstained from the war efforts on either side. However, POW camps in Japan were geared toward the expansion of the Japanese war effort.
The violation of the Tientsin Convention ultimately led to the First Sino-Japanese War. Once the Japanese and Chinese forces started entering the country, the Donghak rebels gathered in battle against the Joseon, Japanese, and Chinese troops, to drive the foreigners (being the Chinese and Japanese troops) out of the country. In the beginning of the battle, the rebels actually had the advantage. They were successfully defeating the Joseon army until the Japanese appeared.

During the war, Fred Korematsu attempted to prove the bad morals of the relocation camps, but the Supreme Court supported the validity of Executive Order 9066 saying it was “a wartime necessity” (“Japanese-American Internment”). The last center, Tule Lake, closed on March 20, 1946; it peaked at a population of 18,789 internees on December 25, 1944 (“Japanese-American Internment Camps”). In 1948, a law was passed that stated the government would indemnify the property that the people of the camps lost. Even though many Japanese-Americans did not return to their original cities, this new law helped create more opportunities for them to start over with their lives and families.
