Freedom, Tolerance and Justice

Varifrank: Freedom, Tolerance and Justice Go take a look at this post about the end of World War II.

When asked about his reaction to the signing of the surrender,
[Ambassador Kase of Japan] said, “Here is the victor announcing the verdict to prostrate the enemy. He can impose a humiliating penalty if he so desires. Yet he pleads only for freedom, tolerance and justice ... I was thrilled beyond words."
Freedom, Tolerance and Justice. Isn't that what America's ideals are?
