Apparently Daniel Seaman resents the Japanese competition for a place in the pantheon of victimology. The Jewish holocaust is the one and only example of man’s inhumanity to man. The Japanese do not teach their children about the atrocities committed by their government. This is wrong. They should agree to teach this subject as soon as the Chinese agree to teach their children about the 100 million killed by their own regime. Perhaps American children should be taught about the Morgenthau Plan and the U.S. government’s role in the 20th century slave trade. World War II propaganda has been so successful that it has endured for 70 years. The Japanese were subhumans who deserved everything they got. The bombs saved lives. No one considers an alternative: a more generous and farsighted negotiated peace. Had Japan been allowed to retain its position in Korea and Manchuria it is unlikely that the U.S. would have been involved in the Asian wars. As inhumane as the Japanese were, Chinese were migrating into Manchuria. Their attack on Pearl Harbor was not completely unprovoked and was not a total surprise.
guess the Americans had another agenda and plan. Had to keep China safe for the commies to get.
