Did You Grow Up Feeling Guilty about Hiroshima Bombing?

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:

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 Massacre of Indonesians in Mandor Commemorated

“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?

You decide!

[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.]

Nanjing Holocaust Commemorated in China

Posted by feww on December 13, 2014

First state commemoration of the Nanjing Massacre held in China

Addressing the first state commemoration of Nanjing Massacre Victims, the Chinese President Xi said the massacre, committed by Japanese aggressors, was one of three major massacres during WWII. It was an atrocious anti-human crime and a dark page in the history of humanity, he said, Xinhua reported.

“Anyone who tries to deny the massacre will not be allowed by history, the souls of the 300,000 deceased victims, the 1.3 billion Chinese people, and all people who love peace and justice in the world,” said Xi.

“In February 2014, China’s top legislature designated Dec. 13 as the National Memorial Day for Nanjing Massacre Victims to mourn those killed by Japanese invaders and expose war crimes committed by the Japanese,” said Xinhua.

Japan’s Wartime Shame Documented by … Japanese!

Posted by feww on April 27, 2014

Forcing women into sex slavery and setting up ‘comfort stations’ officially conducted by invading Japanese army

“A total of 89 wartime documents made public on Friday show details of atrocities Japanese troops committed in China during World War Two (WWII).” said a report.

The files, which were kept by the invading Japanese army in Northeast China, were made public as “a response to Japan’s right-wing politicians’ denial of its wartime crimes in China,” said the report. Twenty-five files relate to ‘comfort women.’

The documents represent only a small fraction of about 100,000 wartime Japanese files, which were buried by the Japanese Imperial Army. They  were discovered during construction work in the early 1950s, said Yin Huai, president of the Jilin Provincial Archives in Changchun, capital of Jilin Province.

About ninety percent of the files are in Japanese, said the report.

Japan Continues to Deny its WWII Atrocities: Former “Comfort Women” seek Japan’s apology for WWII rapes

Japan on 27 June 2007 brushed aside calls from US lawmakers for a fresh apology to wartime sex slaves, even as the former “comfort women” renewed their demands for Tokyo to acknowledge their plight. Japan said the US move to pass a resolution calling for an “unambiguous” apology from Japan for the coercion of women into army brothels during World War II would not damage relations between the two allies.

The invading Japanese army in northeast China, documented their atrocities, presumably to pass onto the next generations.

The files are from archives of the military police corps of Japan’s Kwantung Army and the national bank of the puppet Manchurian regime, which are stored in Jilin Provincial Archives in northeast China.

The 25 files on “comfort women” include two investigation reports, two telephone records and 21 documents on troops forcing women to have sex and enslaving them.

They revealed conditions at “comfort stations”, including ratios between Japanese soldiers and “comfort women” and details of gruesome rapes.

The invading Japanese army allocated women proportionally.

In Feb. 1 to 10 in 1938, there were six “comfort women” for 1,200 soldiers, a ratio of 1:200, in Xiaguan district of east China’s Nanjing. After Feb. 20, there were eleven more “comfort women”, representing a ratio of 1:71.

In five months since November 1944, the invading Japanese army paid 532,000 Japanese yen on setting up “comfort stations”. The expenditure was approved by the Kwantung Army, said a telephone record of the national bank of the puppet Manchurian regime.

The invading Japanese army had abducted and forced women from occupied Korea to some “comfort stations” in Chinese regions, such as Heihe in northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province and Wuhu in eastern China’s Anhui Province, according to the files.

Invading Japanese troops set up “comfort stations” everywhere they reached. The stations appeared in at least twenty to thirty counties in northeast China, said Su Zhiliang, a professor on the history of “comfort women” at Shanghai Normal University.

“The archives showed that the ‘comfort station’ in Java in Indonesia, strongly demonstrated the ‘comfort women’ system had reached the southeast Asian country,” he said.

Nanjing witnessed genocide, mass murder and war rape after the Japanese captured of the city on December 13, 1937.

To commemorate the event, memorial events are being held  across China. Services in Nanjing will include “a candlelight vigil, a prayer assembly for peace, as well as press conferences and seminars,” said Zhu Chengshan, curator of the Nanjing Massacre Hall.

“As part of this year’s event, a report on protection of survivors’ oral histories of the atrocity will be presented and a Sino-U.S. collaborative project on oral history studies will be announced, Zhu announced.”

“A dictionary on the history of the Nanjing Massacre is being compiled and will be published next year. The dictionary, featuring more than 18,000 entries so far, will reveal the historical facts on the crimes of the Japanese troops in Nanjing from late 1937 to early 1938, said Zhu Chengshan, curator of the Memorial Hall for the Victims of the Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders.”
