Except that we completely outfoxed and defeated the Asian Japanese militarists in WWII. Three examples: (1) breaking the Purple Code; (2) the use of Navajo Code Talkers, which was really a code within a code; (3) the early use of radar, and harnessing radar to gun solutions. Many other examples. We simply outfoxed and deceived them.
Kipling was British. They are no longer in Asia. We still are.
Well done my brother!
