Regarding Charles G. Wilt’s Nov. 19 letter, “Conservatives had their chance“: As an American commenting on Japanese politics, I don’t pretend to know much about this subject, but I do know this: I agree that President Barack Obama has done his country a service by mentioning those who suffered from the atomic bombs. He also did what I consider a fairly good job of showing submission to the Emperor of Japan. Also, I think a unified Asia is the best idea since sliced bread.

I do believe Japan is capable of bringing about peace because it has already proven itself in that area. When it comes down to it, liberals are only human and, given time, will no doubt make mistakes of their own, whether because of success, complacency, egos or a myriad of other factors that eventually affect governments around the globe.
