Patriotism versus loyalty

Transcripts available in the following languages:

Patriotism is more showing your faith and love for your country, where loyalty often has to be proven. In the case of December 7th, I think the Japanese felt, in fact, even embarrassed that Japan would attack Pearl Harbor. And, I think Japanese, actually, were very, very loyal to America, though America did not think so.
