The unmentionable

A curious phenomenon seems have developed in the US which is hard to understand. Perhaps it's nothing new, but I never noticed it much until it was pointed out on Armchair Asia: The US, when discussing WW2, has become reluctant to mention the name of its enemy in the Pacific.

One can understand wanting to move on from the war (although some in power in Japan don't wanna let go), but this is a bit much. We "beat back a danger in the Pacific"? What, a typhoon or something?
