Japan Commemorates Day of ‘Collective Punishment’

Today is the 69th anniversary of Hiroshima bombing

World’s first Atomic Bomb, dubbed the “Little Boy,” was dropped on Hiroshima by the pilot of an American B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, on August 6, 1945, at 8:15 AM. Anyone in the open was either vaporized or turned into carbon instantly. Some 80,000 people were killed.

The death toll from the radiation and injuries climbed to 140,000 before the year’s end. The bomb destroyed more than two-thirds of the city and severely damaged about a third of what remained.

Events Leading to the Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

“The Japanese military machine was motivated by an uncontrollable desire for aggression, expansion and imperialism.”

The Japanese invasion of China immediately before and during World War II lasted from the early 1930’s to 1945. During this dark period in modern Asian history, the Japanese military machine was motivated by an uncontrollable desire for aggression, expansion and imperialism. The brutalities and atrocities committed by the Japanese military in China and elsewhere in Asia finally ended with destruction on Japanese soil — the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August, 1945. The victims of the Japanese militarists’ aggression included the innocent and peace-loving peoples of China, Korea, the Philippines, other south east Asian countries, United States, and Japan herself.

In the past forty-five years, China and other countries have allowed the Japanese war crimes to be forgotten. In fact, the only constant reminders of the victims of World War II in Asia were the events commemorating the Japanese who were killed by the atomic bomb dropped by the United States. The young generations, Chinese and Japanese alike, are not kept informed about the consequences of imperialist militarism.

During this time, the Japanese Ministry of Education distorted the facts of World War II in their history textbooks, the government glorified convicted Class A war criminals as national heroes, and high ranking Japanese officials publicly denied the occurrence of the Nanking Massacre, one of the most infamous atrocities committed by the Japanese armies in China.

THE NANKING [NANJING] MASSACRE

Between mid-December 1937  and late January 1938, “the Japanese committed the infamous Nanking Massacre, or the Rape of Nanking, during which an estimated 300,000 Chinese soldiers and civilians were killed, and 20,000 women were raped.”

“During the Nanking Massacre, the Japanese committed a litany of atrocities against innocent civilians, including mass execution, raping, looting, and burning. It is impossible to keep a detailed account of all of these crimes. However, from the scale and the nature of these crimes as documented by survivors and the diaries of the Japanese militarists, the chilling evidence of this historical tragedy is indisputable.”

In Japan there was NO outrage!

THE TRAGEDY AT YANGTZE RIVER

On December 13th, a large number of refugees tried to escape from the Japanese by trying to cross the Yangtze River. They were trapped on the east bank because no transportation was available; many of them tried to swim across the river. Meanwhile, the Japanese arrived and fired at the people on the shore and in the river. A Japanese soldier reported that the next day he saw an uncountable number of dead bodies of adults and children covering the whole river. He estimated that more than 50,000 people were killed at this tragic incident of the Nanking massacre.

ANNIHILATION IN THE CITY

When the Japanese troops first entered the city on the 13th, the streets were crowded with more than 100,000 refugees or injured Chinese soldiers. The Japanese relentlessly fired at these people. The next morning, tanks and artilleries entered the city and killing of people continued. Dead bodies covered the two major streets of the city. The streets became “streets of blood” as a result of the two-day annihilation.

 MASS EXECUTION OF CAPTIVES

A large number of Chinese soldiers had already been captured in the suburban areas before the Japanese entered the city. The rest of the Chinese soldiers scattered inside the city and changed into civilian clothes. After the “City-Entering Ceremony” on the 17th, the Japanese arrested anybody who was suspected to be a Chinese soldier. A large number of young men who were arrested, together with those who had been captured earlier, were sent outside of the city to be massacred, from several thousand to tens of thousand at a time. In most cases, the captives were shot by machine guns, and those who were still alive were bayoneted individually. In some cases, the Japanese poured gasoline onto the captives and burned them alive. In some cases, poison gas was used.

 SCATTERED ATROCITIES WITH EXTREME CRUELTY

Numerous atrocities occurred within and around the city, and the victims were largely civilians. Japanese soldiers invented and exercised inhumane and barbaric methods of killing. The brutalities included shooting, stabbing, cutting open the abdomen, excavating the heart, decapitation (beheading), drowning, burning, punching the body and the eyes with an awl, and even castration or punching through the vagina.

RAPING

An estimated 20,000 women were raped by the Japanese soldiers during the six weeks of the Nanking Massacre, most were brutally killed afterwards. The Japanese soldiers even raped girls less than ten years old, women over seventy years old, pregnant women, and nuns. Rampant raping took place in the streets or at religious worshiping places during the day. Many women were gang raped. Some Japanese even forced fathers to rape their daughters, sons to rape their mothers, etc. Those who resisted were killed immediately.

ATROCITIES IN THE SAFETY ZONE

When the Japanese were approaching Nanking in mid-November, a group of concerned foreigners formed an international rescue committee to establish a safety zone in an attempt to protect the refugees. The safety zone was located inside the city and consisted of more than twenty refugee camps, each of which accommodated from 200 to 12,000 people. During the six weeks of the Nanking Massacre, the Japanese frequently entered the safety zone to arrest young men. Every time, several hundred young men were arrested and executed on the site.

LOOTING

The Japanese looted all the storehouses and seized virtually everything from the civilians. The loot included jewelry, coins, domesticated animals, food, clothes, antiques, and even inexpensive items such as cigarettes, eggs, fountain pens, and buttons.

 BURNING AND VANDALISM

The Japanese organized burning of buildings in the city. After they had set fire to buildings using either gasoline or some other inflammable chemicals, they hid, waited for and killed people who came to extinguish the fire. Numerous people were killed by fire. Nanking, once a beautiful historical city, was burned to ashes by the Japanese.  [Source]

No lessons were learned!

Nearly 7 decades after receiving the “Collective Punishment,” Japan is re-militarizing again!

Once again the acquiescent, soulless, zombie-like  masses in Japan have voted in a psychopathic prime minster, whose prime ambition is the “glorification” of the land of “Rising Fear,” at any cost.

The people of China, Korea, Philippines…, have a moral obligation to themselves and to their war dead to resist Japan’s re-militarization.

It’s high time Japan’s renewed military ambitions  were throttled, its symbols of past imperial aggression obliterated and the evil spirits of the thugs, war criminals and terrorists exorcised from their shrines.

Disaster Calendar 2011 – August 6 Entry

Today is the 66th anniversary of Hiroshima bombing when the U.S. atomic attack killed 140,000 people.

The Atomic Bomb “Little Boy” was dropped on Hiroshima by the pilot of an American B-29 bomber, the Enola Gay, on August 6, 1945, at 8:15 AM, killing an estimated 80,000 people.

The death toll from the radiation and injuries climbed to 140,000 before the year’s end. The bomb destroyed more than two-thirds of the city and severely damaged about a third of the remainder.

It takes intelligence and courage to do the right thing!

Two atomic bombs, 66 years on, and a major nuclear disaster don’t seem to have made a significant impression in the Japan’s self-destructive psyche.

Five months after the magnitude 9.0 Mega Quake spawned the destructive tsunami that crippled the Fukushima nuclear power plant, the reactors continues to leak radioactive material.

Enter Japan’s Doublespeak PM Naoto Kan

Using the occasion to deliver his skill of holding two contrasting thoughts together (with the aim of deceiving his audience into merging those thoughts as one consistent and therefore acceptable outcome), he has vowed to challenge “conventional beliefs” that nuclear energy is safe.

“We will deeply reflect over the conventional belief that nuclear energy is safe…,” Kan said.

While promising to “thoroughly look into the cause of the accident and to implement and secure fundamental safety measures,” he added.

What hogwash!

Japan’s Nightmares Have Barely Begun!

When the big one knocks Humpty Dumpty off the wall, Kan or the next PM of Japan and all of the country’s defense forces won’t be able to put him together again!
