Skip to comments.Hayward Lectures Obama on the “War Crimes of Imperial Japan”
Posted on 06/01/2016 1:26:30 AM PDT by hamilton_1800
President Obamas Memorial Day trip to Japan to the World War II site of Hiroshima to presumably apologize for dropping the atom bomb has ignited furious criticism of the president. Among those critics is Breitbarts John Hayward, who documents an extensive historical context for the education of those who have only had the opportunity to read progressive-approved textbooks, including apparently the President of the United States. Why is this important? Because the dropping of the atom bomb didnt happen in a vacuum it was used as a means to end a brutal war started by Imperial Japan. "
1) Pearl Harbor: Mr. Obama, who claims to be a lawyer and devotee of international law, may be interested to know that every single one of the 3,581 casualties at Pearl Harbor (according to the National WWII Museum tally) were considered non-combatants, including the 2,403 military personnel who were killed, because Japan did not declare war before the attack. If it happened today, it would be rightly denounced as a terrorist attack.
2) The Bataan Death March
In an act of pure, deliberate sadism
the Japanese forced their prisoners to march a hundred miles to a prison camp on foot. Many of the prisoners were killed out of hand, including anyone who dared to ask for water
and anyone who collapsed from dehydration. POWs reported Japanese soldiers taking away their meager supply of water and feeding it to horses while they watched. Starving men were tortured
It has been estimated that between 5,000 and 11,000 of Japans prisoners were killed during the Bataan Death March. That wasnt the only death march the Empire perpetrated, either. "

There is no mention of WHAT actually led up to this cataclysmic event. No mention of Imperial Japan's conquests and blood thirst. There is no mention of events that led up to the dropping of the bomb.
At least the Krauts have tried to do some soul searching, the Japanese...nada...
bump to read later
What was Obama thinking? Is he on drugs?
The Chichijima incident (also known as the Ogasawa incident) occurred in late 1944, when Japanese soldiers killed and consumed five American airmen on Chichi Jima, in the Bonin Islands.
On 7 Oct 1943, Rear Adm. Shigematsu Sakaibara, commander of the Japanese garrison on Wake Island, orders the execution of 96 Americans POWs, claiming they were trying to make radio contact with U.S. forces.
The Palawan Massacre is another example of their barbarism and cruelty.
Waste of time explaining the obvious to the America Hater,why people still write these articles is what baffles me
Ad then Obama had the gall and nerve to show his face at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day to honor our own war dead. What a cheap, sleazy ba$+ard.
“It is truly unfortunate that the POTUS put the politically correct anti-nuclear agenda ahead of honoring Americas veterans and the sacrifices they and their families made this Memorial Day.”
No, it is not unfortunate. It is a calculated and deliberate slap in the face. He is the enemy within.
Our ‘President Dumba*&’ is your very typical Liberal. He thinks if he doesn’t talk about the facts, then they DON’T exist.
However, facts are funny things. THEY are positively immutable (it’s why they are called FACTS). All Liberals have a hell of a time with that.
I wonder what it’s like living in THAT world.
The Japanese understand karma.
I don’t know enough dirty words to use to describe Obama. Worst president ever.
Right on. They were humiliated and defeated, totally. That is what the West will eventually have to do with Islam/ISIS...
“There is no mention of WHAT actually led up to this cataclysmic event”. .........
Real history is no longer being taught in schools so omitting those important issues makes the U.S. out as the bad guy. Those of us who lived during WWII know what happened and need to pass it on to those who follow us.
I was born in 1958 and we grew up in a household where we learned 1000% more about WWII than we did in school. My dad was in the USAAF and fought in the ETA...
