The Nips killed millions of Chinese. They have never apologized for any of their murders.
Let’s just bomb them again.
“It was Dolphin & Whale”!
In light of the “9/11 Mosque” at ground zero, I propose that we build a United States Airforce Community Center at ground zero in Hiroshima, with a B-29 Bomber replica mounted in front as a memorial to America’s community service to that city. /s
No, I am not being cruel to the Japanese. The satire is purely on the stupidity of a mosque at ground zero.
Sorry, that should be United States Air Force.
P.S. We can call it: Pearl Harbor House. Nice touch, huh?
Oh, yeah, I left out "Pink Lady and Jeff."
The Mothra singers!
No, it was to END unjustified force against civilian populations. I don’t mind the japs, but they really need to learn their own history.
Actually, to me, any nip that whines about the consequences of aggressive war is a bushido violator, has lost face, and should immediately commit ritual seppuku.
Actually I think they should be allowed to build a shinto shrine at the site of the Arizona reminding us that it was Japanese Military Might (and the Mitsubishi Corporation) that put her where she is today.
Would it matter if they did (and I think they did, decades ago)?
Robber: I’m sorry I broke into your house.
Homeowner: I’m sorry I defended my home and shot you.
The intruder was the one who violated the integrity of the home. Why should the homeowner apologize for taking perfectly reasonable actions?
Not really...The Soviets while having a massive land army and tactical air ..had no Navy of note, no amphibious force and no sea lift... making it very hard to invade an island nation....
The Soviets WW2 forces were very similar to in composition to the German forces a massive land army and tactical air... and would have the same problems the German had with getting at Britain in 1940 across the channel...
Conversely the US in fighting two very different wars had to develop a very balances composition of not only a land army and tactical air ...
Bottom line that massive land army of the Soviets was not going any were that required heavy sea lift to get there and supply them once they got there
... Rock, Paper, Scissors ...
If this isn’t the handiwork of Comrade Zero, I don’t know what is. What a wimp.
But they wouldn't have had to, we would have done the heavy lifting, and then they would have brought in their soldiers, and we would have given into them just like at Yalta and Potsdam.
“The Divine One” shall apologize for the American victory in WWII.
I am sorry that Japan refused to surrender before we were forced to start nuking their cities.
I am sorry that Japan still refused to surrender AFTER we nuked Hiroshima.
I am sorry that Japan still refused to surrender until after we nuked Nagasaki and convinced them that we would continue to nuke their cities until they surrendered (we had actually used up all of our nukes and it would have taken a few months to make some more).
How is that?
***Survivors of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are welcoming a decision by the United States to send its first ever delegation to a ceremony marking the anniversary of the attacks, but are asking for something they aren’t likely to get an apology. ****
If you don’t like my peaches, don’t shake my tree!
If you can’t stand the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen!
You stirred up a hornet’s nest and you got stung!
“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” -Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto.
We need a website: Hiroshima and Nagasaki: WE DO NOT APOLOGIZE - YOU HAD IT COMING!
The Japanese people were being urged by their god-emperor to fight to the death in an invasion, using bamboo sticks if necessary, so we had estimated up to ten million Japanese casualties just in combat, not counting starvation and disease. The count includes men, women and children.
Frankly, the thought horrifies me. No humane, rational person could possibly want to commit that slaughter unless there were no other choice.
I am PROUD that we were able to end the war quickly, avoiding not only those deaths, but of a million or more of our troops, and hundreds of thousands more people in China and elsewhere.
Next the SOB will be sending a penitent JCS Chairman to apologize to the Eichmann family.
Those are unbearable.
***They were turned down***
Those bullet holes were still in the walls when I was there in 1969.
Hey Japan, put some ice on it!
They’re still there.
Good luck finding anything about that in their school textbooks.
Is Mr. Tanaka on record stating the merits of his own government apologizing for the Rape of Nanking, Pearl Harbor, the Korean "Comfort Women", the Bataan Death March (and the list, of course goes on)?
This brings to mind a Free Republic thread from the past:
My old man was on his way to invade Japan when the bomb hit Hiroshima. About 80 days in the belly of a troop ship, zig-zagging around the Pacific. His exact words to me about it were “they dropped the bomb, the war was over, and that was all right with your father.”
That’s as far as my opinion will ever extend.
Yes they would have, in fact they were developing biological warfare against us.
Japan war criminals killed several times the number of civilian victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Talk to the Chinese and the Filipinos...
No mixed feelings here whatsoever.
I’ve seen photos of the training material pupblished to teach Japanese civilians how to attack Americans by any and all means. Very similar to current Islamist indoctrination material. The common Leftist teaching in today’s schools is that America forced Japan to attack China, and then used that as an excuse to commit attrocities against the Japanese. [Pardon me while I puke.]
