Voiceless - I have re-read the article and agree with you; I was incorrect having assumed that the symbol in question was the Japanese red sun white background - without realizing that the symbol in question was the red sun with the red rays (on a white background).

So in case anyone didn't catch that, yes possibly for the very first time ever, someone is admitting they were wrong on the internet... remember where you where when you read this, your kids will want to know.

I still think the comparison to the swastika was OTT, but as you know, I've been wrong once, and so it could happen again!

Aiken... you are being silly now. The red circle (sun) on a white background is Japan's national flag. The "rising sun" version is a flag used specifially to represent Japan's military forces.
