I'm not a military expert, so please excuse my ignorance.
As a Budoka and a 'survivor' I found the following documentary extremely relevant to the subject of Bushido. Please go to the second paragraph if you only have time for a quick browse.
If anyone else has seen it I'd be interested in your perspective.
Thanks for the link. It looks very interesting and very well done. Looks like it might actually be a good piece about the issue vice a polictical agenda.
