    I think to myself why Japan is so cool in technology, I heard lots that they actually rob ideas from the Americans and change them a bit and call them theirs?

    If they stole US ideas just to make billions from then, then America would bomb Japan like they did years ago.

    Good point, but I think America wouldn't bomb Japan for just robbing some cool ideas?
    Or would they?

    If Japan stole ideas and then proceeded to make billions, American would bomb the place.

    No, it is a point - Japan wouldn't be able to get away with stealing ideas without being bombed.

    America wouldn't use force per se, but might use its more substantial economic muscle just as it forced Japan to float their currency in the 1980s because its cheap imports was cutting into their domestic market viciously.

    Just like as it is with China now. which incidentally will float their currecncy despite their blitherings at 2007-2008

    The Japanese are a robbing nation. A nation built on theft and deception. I would never trust anything made or manufactured by a sly Japanese.

    The USA is not that petty. Robbing ideas, it's competition. All's fair in business and governments won't step in just because their company got mugged by a foreing firm.
