Godzilla and Postwar Japan

Been saving this one. This is actually a serious academic look at the meaning of Godzilla, something I’ve been interested in myself:

Question: Does Godzilla represent the US, i.e. a nuclear giant that ravages the countryside? Or does Godzilla represent Japan, i.e. an out of control monster that is destroyed in a single devastating blast? Or is he somehow both?
