My daughter and I were watching an episode of Hetalia over Netflix and during WWII America had planned to cover Mt. Fuji with red paint. We thought the idea was just a joke put in by the animators until the narrator said it was true..goggle it. So we did a google search and it's true. We had planned to send bomber planes with several gallons of paint over Mt. Fuji and drop them. The idea was scrapped because it was too much hassle.
History buffs, since I cannot tell a fake website from a real one, really? Did we really try to paint Mt. Fuji? LOLZ I am still trying to picture it.

What would be the purpose of it? B/C they're communists & "Red" or b/c it was a big target for our bombers? Hard telling. I've never heard it, but that doesn't mean it isn't so. Did you try the History Channel's website? Or Botanical (the maker of encyclopedias)?
