Flags of Our Fathers: Japanese Iwo Jima eyewitness tells it in his own words - MSN-Mainichi Daily News: "Shukan Bunshun asks Akikusa if he felt deaths of his comrades in arms was meaningful.
'Considering how this country has been without war for the past 60 years, I think it's commendable,' Akikusa replies. 'If you regard them as 'sacrificial stones' who caused Japan to relinquish what it sought to become in those times, then I want to believe their deaths were not without meaning.'
