First, the French do not have a seven thousand year old history of unified spirituality. The Romans conquered a variety of primitive tribes holding forth a variety of earth gods. Only when Christianity flowed through the communication systems of the Roman Empire was there any sort of consistent spirituality. Into the Middle Ages there was really no nation of France even though the Pope about 900 AD blessed one faction . An area was colored the same on a map long before the age of tribal warfare ended. We called the contending factions ducies, principalities, etc. Second, I stand by my comment which says Japan will move to re-establish its national independence. It is a severe stretch on your part to say I implyed Japan would contemplate an attack on both countries. Again they have a millenial perspective on there position of dominance.
