100,000 a mounth according to the Book "Downfall" By Richard B Frank,There was also a order by the Japanese high command in the pipeline to kill all allied POW's and internees
Unforntely their is no Simon Wiesenthal for the pacific.If there was these idiots would have shouted down a long time ago
“Obviously, these morons had never heard of Operation DOWNFALL, in which the U.S. government secretly predicted hundreds of thousands of Allied casualties, and over a million Japanese. Many of us would not be here today if the atomic bombs had not been dropped since our grandfathers would have been killed taking the home islands.”
Grandfather, heck. My dad would probably have been there. He returned to the US in April of ‘45 having escaped a German POW camp in Jan ‘45 and evading to the Russian side. Took a while for them to ut him loose and return him here stateside, but as he was pretty much back in fighting condition by the time Coronet was slated to go, he’d probably have been there.
I’ve also seen the terrible toll of what the Japanese did to US POWs they held. Dad belonged to the Ex-POW organization, and several of his fellow chapter members were PTO vets. They still bear the mental and physical scars of what was done to them.
The exhibit guide/presentor definitely had an ax to grind, but was shocked by my questions. Her inability to answer them, I think, was embarrassing. Those present saw the agenda blatantly for what it was, but there were several more tours that day and many, many other days no one questioned her expertise.
What other country not only allows such dissension, but pays for it as well. Sometimes I wonder about how such freedom can survive.
