The 70th anniversary of victory against Japanese Aggression and the end of WWII
I grew up feeling guilty that my grandparents generation had used weapons of mass destruction indiscriminately against “civilians.”
Then I earned about the atrocities committed by the Japanese military [and civilians that fully supported the dwarf emperors war efforts] against the Chinese, Koreans,Indians, Filipinos, Malayans, Indonesians, Americans, British, Soviets…
WWII, the biggest war in history, involved more than 60 countries and regions, and affected some 2 billion people, about 80 percent of the world’s population at that time. Between 70 to 85 million people were killed.
China: Japan invaded northeast China in September 1931, however the full-scale invasion of China started on July 7, 1937, after a crucial access point to Beijing, the Lugou Bridge, was attacked by Japanese troops. Chinese forces killed, wounded and captured over 1.5 million Japanese troops in the Anti-Japanese War,” said a report.
“More than 35 million Chinese were killed or injured in the anti-Japanese war, one-third of all who fell or were injured during WWII, according to incomplete official statistics. In the Nanjing Massacre of December 1937 alone, Japanese troops slaughtered at least 300,000 Chinese civilians and unarmed soldiers.”
The Pacific War
More than 32 million people including 26 million civilians were killed in the Pacific War.
China: Japan invaded northeast China in September 1931, however the full-scale invasion of China started on July 7, 1937, after a crucial access point to Beijing, the Lugou Bridge, was attacked by Japanese troops. “Chinese forces killed, wounded and captured over 1.5 million Japanese troops in the Anti-Japanese War,” said a report.
Manila massacre: 100,000 to 500,000 civilians killed, most of whom were massacred by Japanese forces.
No record of a single person in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Tokyo or anywhere else in Japan ever raising objection to the massacres.
The Bataan Death March: About 1,600 Americans, and up to 20,000 Filipino died as a result of Japanese war crime.
Historians and governments of some countries hold Japanese military forces, namely the Imperial Japanese Army, the Imperial Japanese Navy, and the Imperial Japanese family, especially [the dwarf] Emperor Hirohito, responsible for killings and other crimes committed against millions of civilians and prisoners of war.
Some members of the Liberal Democratic Party in the Japanese government such as former prime minister Junichiro Koizumi and current Prime Minister Shinzo Abe have prayed at the Yasukuni Shrine, which includes convicted Class A war criminals in its honored war dead. Some Japanese history textbooks only offer brief references to the various war crimes, and members of the Liberal Democratic Party such as Shinzo Abe have denied some of the atrocities such as government involvement in abducting women to serve as “comfort women” (involuntary prostitutes).
This scorched earth strategy, sanctioned by the dwarf emperor Hirohito himself, directed Japanese forces to “Kill All, Burn All, and Loot All.” Additionally, captured Allied servicemen and civilians were massacred in various incidents, including:
- Alexandra Hospital massacre
- Laha massacre
- Banka Island massacre
- Parit Sulong
- Palawan Massacre
- SS Behar
- SS Tjisalak massacre perpetrated by Japanese submarine I-8
- Wake Island massacre
- Tinta Massacre
- Bataan Death March
- Shinyo Maru Incident
- Sulug Island massacre
- Pontianak incidents
Not a single person in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Tokyo or anywhere else in Japan raised any objection to these massacres, while they were being committed.
Human experimentation and biological warfare
According to the 2002 International Symposium on the Crimes of Bacteriological Warfare, the Imperial Japanese Army germ warfare and human experiments killed about 580,000. [Daniel Barenblatt, A Plague upon Humanity, 2004, p.xii, 173.]
“Japanese occupiers massacred more than 21,000 people, including many women and children, near Pontianak between April 23, 1943 to June 28, 1944.”
What’s different today?
Only names, places and some of the faces!
Below: 32 million people lost their lives so that the cockroach could creep into the war criminals shrine.
How can you stop the Japanese from committing another round of atrocities against their neighbors and rest of the world?
[Up to a half of any money you spend buying defective Japanese products goes to boosting their economy, enabling them to develop their large stockpiles of biochemical weapons.]
