Whitewashing History – Imperial Japan

The Rape of Nanking

The Rape of Nanking

Imperial Japan was EVIL – as bad or worse than the Nazis.

Victor Davis Hanson:

Imperial Japan was not, as often claimed, forced into a corner by a U.S. oil embargo, which came only after years of horrific Japanese atrocities in China and Southeast Asia. Instead, an opportunistic and aggressive fascist Japan gambled that the geostrategy of late 1941 had made America uniquely vulnerable to a surprise attack.

By December 1, 1941, Nazi Germany, Japan’s Axis partner, had reached the suburbs of Moscow. Japan believed that the German army would soon knock the Soviet Union out of the war.

Japan had also hedged its bets by signing a nonaggression pact with the Soviets. Japanese leaders assumed that even if communist Russia survived, Japan could avoid a costly land war on its rear flank. The U.S., not Japan, would likely have a two-front war.

By 1941, the Netherlands, France, and Belgium had all been defeated and occupied by the Third Reich. Only the British remained of the original European anti-Axis allies, and London had been under constant aerial assault by the German Luftwaffe during the Blitz. Japan figured that Germany and Italy might soon win the war and wished to pile on before it ended.

Japan had calculated that all of Europe’s resource-rich Pacific and Asian colonies were now orphaned and up for grabs. By starting a Pacific war and knocking out the U.S., Japan could get its hands on the resources necessary to fuel its war machine.

British-held Singapore and the American bases in the Philippines were isolated and poorly defended. And they would be completely cut off once the U.S. Seventh Fleet and air arm were neutralized at Pearl Harbor.

Starting a war in the Pacific meant the Japanese would have easy access to huge supplies of oil, rubber, rice, and strategic metals for their newfound mercantile empire, the Great East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere.

The U.S. also had lost military deterrence. The Japanese had watched carefully as America did little to help its two closest allies: France and Great Britain. The former was easily overrun by the Nazis, the latter bombed unmercifully.

While the United States had belatedly built up its fleet and started rearming by 1941, its military was still woefully ill-equipped to fight a two-front global war. Japan logically figured that Germany and Italy would tie down the United States in Europe, while Japan systematically finished off any American warships that had escaped the Pearl Harbor wreckage.

In key categories such as fighter aircraft, torpedoes, night gunnery, and destroyers, the Japanese were more formidable than the U.S. military in 1941.

Finally, a number of Japan’s most accomplished officers and diplomats had visited or studied in the U.S. in the pre-Depression boom years — among them Foreign Minister Yosuke Matsuoka, Admirals Isoroku Yamamoto and Tamon Yamaguchi, and General Tadamichi Kuribayashi. While they all had been impressed with U.S. industrial power, they nevertheless had developed contempt for American popular culture, finding it frivolous and fueled by Roaring Twenties affluence and leisure.

Many Japanese strategists had assumed that the U.S. never again would wish to endure a world war, and would prefer to negotiate rather than fight to the finish. Such assumptions proved false.

If the Japanese had succeeded they would have controlled all of East and Southeast Asia. History shows that aggressive empires stay aggressive. Imperial Japan was not benign. They were rapacious and cruel.

David French:

Americans have short memories, and to the extent they think about World War II, they tend to think of Hitler and the Holocaust — and justifiably so. His attempt to exterminate an entire race of people was among the worst crimes in world history. But in remembering Hitler, we cannot forget Japan. It killed an estimated 14 million Chinese citizens in its invasion of China. And during the course of that invasion, its forces acted much like Hitler’s SS, conducting mass-scale rapes, grotesque human experimentation, and enslaving countless men, women, and children.

Japan’s rank-and-file military fought with a ferocity matched on the European Theater of Operations only by Hitler’s most dedicated fanatics. Japan’s troops fought to the last man, and when its military plight grew increasingly desperate, it launched a suicide-bombing campaign that dwarfs anything ISIS or al-Qaeda have ever imagined, much less attempted. Even many Japanese civilians demonstrated that they’d rather die than surrender — throwing themselves off cliffs to escape American forces.

As American forces approached the Japanese mainland, the blood flow became a hemorrhage — with the Battle of Okinawa demonstrating the scale of the carnage to come. In slightly less than three months of combat, more than 20,000 Americans died, over 70,000 Japanese troops lost their lives, and up to one-third of Japanese civilians perished. In other words, that one battle was deadlier than the Hiroshima bombing.

Americans today simply can’t imagine the horror that an invasion of Japan would have unleashed. Our country had already lost more than 400,000 men, with hundreds of thousands more grievously injured, and we stood to perhaps match or exceed that total in the great battle for the mainland. Japanese losses would have numbered in the millions. Could we have withstood suffering on that scale? Would the carnage have caused us to relent?

Yes, it is true that the Japanese leadership was willing to discuss a peace treaty that would end the war. But their terms would have meant that mainland Japan remained undefeated and unoccupied and that the Imperial Japanese government would remain in power. In other words, not a surrender.

Gateway Pundit:

Pacific War put together this list of a few of the Worst Imperial Army and Navy War Crimes during World War II.


The Rape of Nanking (1937), also known as the Nanjing Massacre

The Bangka Island Massacre (1942): Slaughter of Australian Army Nurses

The Bataan Death March (1942)

The Sandakan Death March (1945)

Murder and cannibalism on the Kokoda Track (1942)

Conscripting women for sexual slavery in Japanese Army brothels (1937-1945)

Mutilation and murder of Dutch civilians in Borneo

Murder and cannibalism – captured American pilots

Murder of American pilots and aircrew at Midway (1942)

The bombing of the hospital ship Manunda (1942)

The sinking of the hospital ship Centaur (1943)

Extermination of survivors of merchant vessels sunk by the Japanese (1943-45)

Both Japan and Germany are our friends and allies now, and that’s a good thing. We don’t need to keep rubbing their noses in the crimes of their grandparents. But neither should we forget those crimes.

Fuck Obama.

    Japan was just living the imperialist dream, following in the footsteps of the Dutch, Beirish, and French. Maybe somewhat harsher than their European role models, but at best a difference of degree, not of kind.

  2. Myiq2xu™ says:

    Remember the end of Pearl Harbor when Danny and Rafe end up in China after bombing Tokyo? The Japanese killed over 100,000 Chinese in reprisal for helping our pilots escape.

    • AFVet says:

      The Flying Tigers were born to help the Chinese against the Japanese attacks.
      The air war in the Pacific was horrendous.
      Here’s an 8 minute air show of the aircraft that were involved.

  3. Myiq2xu™ says:

    BTW – Imperial Japan was racist too. They saw themselves as a master race superior to whites and other Asians.

  4. SHV says:

    The famous Nanking beheading contest. 2nd Lt. Mukai defeated 2nd Lt. Noda 106 to 105 in extra “innings”. The Chinese and Koreans have long memories and haven’t forgotten. IMO, the Chinese will eventually get even.

  5. DandyTIger says:

    Wonder what my relatives that were in the pacific theater (Army Air Corps) would think of this shit if they were still alive today.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      My uncle who was over there (Marines) wouldn’t talk about it.

      • taw46 says:

        My last surviving uncle, a 94 yr old WWII vet, cannot believe this country today. They know nothing about history and are too busy hating on America to learn. All five of my uncles served in the war (one in the Philippines), as did my father. Just disgusted with things I have read today. God bless all veterans of the military.

        • AFVet says:

          I was stationed in the PI not far from Lily Hill, one of the last bastions of the Japanese.
          It was covered with jungle and the Japanese had machine guns all over it.
          You could see it from my barracks.

    • DeniseVB says:

      My Dad fought at Guadalcanal and Peleliu in the Pacific War. Never talked about it. So many were killed, he went from a Pvt to a field commissioned Lt. in a few months. That’s all I know. It’s how I became a First Year baby of the Baby Boomers🙂

      Dad died in 1984 and my husband’s biggest regret is not learning more about his war experiences in WW2 and Korea.

      • taw46 says:

        My uncles did not talk much about what they experienced, until very late in life. Maybe because I asked questions. I was so close to them, for many years we lived in the same town.

      • AFVet says:

        My Dad never said much about it.
        He did however take the opportunity to show off his ability in Morse Code on Mom’s organ.
        It’s amazing how some things become ingrained in your memory.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Same here. My dad wouldn’t talk about it and neither would others in the pacific. The ones in Europe seemed to be able to talk about it a bit more. Well, some of them. Not the one at D-Day.

    • AFVet says:

      My Dad was Army Air Corps stationed in Burma as a radio operator.

      • blowme0bama says:

        My Dad was in Burma as well. Wouldn’t talk about it.

      • silverlake mom says:

        My Daddy was Army Air Corps. He was a radio man as well, on a B24 Liberator. He was a part of Operation Tidal Wave bombing the (German) oil refineries in Romania. He was 19 years old when he and his crew were shot down. Luckily they landed in a snow bank on the Swiss border and were rescued by the Red Cross.

    • Venus says:

      My grandfather was a gunner in the US Navy in the Pacific. He enlisted at 18 right at the start of WW2. He didn’t talk much about it either. The only things I ever got out of him were:
      1. He wouldn’t even set his toe in the Ocean after he came back. One vacation at the beach I asked him why he wouldn’t come in the water with us (as he sat under the umbrella in his chair) — he said he “had enough swimming in the ocean” Turned out one ship he was on sunk and he treaded water for hours before being rescued. When he was, he was immediately set down on an island, handed a gun and told to “Go help the Marines take this island.”
      2. He would not allow sardines or lime jello in the house because while waiting for the next supply ship all they would have for breakfast, lunch and dinner was sardines and lime jello because that was always all that was left as no one cared much for them and
      3. His favorite 4th of July was the one when “we bombed the hell out of that Jap island; took a break; and then bombed the hell out of it some more.”

    This “Rush to Revisionism” in recasting the historic reasons behind WWII are a screaming accusation against today’s Academe and their graduate products. Biased much? Naw. Outright liars!!!

    • taw46 says:

      Well, back in 2008 Michelle said we would have to change our history. No one seemed bothered by that, especially the media. So now we have revisionism.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        I’m not claiming that America has never done anything wrong, but WWII was a case where it was easy to tell the good guys from the bad guys.

        • taw46 says:

          Yes, it was clear at that time, good and evil. I am just tired of people judging the past by how they “feel” about it now, not what the facts and circumstances were at that time in history. And always blaming the U.S.

        • 49erDweet says:

          LOL. Back in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s there idiots going around the country screaming that “communists” were trying to take over this country by worming their way into the colleges and universities and rewriting history. That way future generations would do the take-over for them. ROFL!

    Ace is BACK!


    For a long time I’ve been busting on Marco Rubio people, and the class — Upper Middle Class College-Educated — so enthused about him.

    Let me explain why.

    I’ve said this before, but this class, in particular, is extremely bully-able. Their class itself is is the product of liberal social cues and mores. College being one of the main prerequisites of class entry (other prerequisites: That your parents are also college-educated), this class is particularly sensitive to threats to their social status by liberals.

    Any class whose credentials are monitored by a progressive/archliberal dominant cadre is going to be easily whipsawed into conformity with that progressive/archliberal cadre.

    I’m sorry to say this, but most of the right’s “leadership” — media, think tank (academic), political — is drawn from the upper middle/parents were college educated class.

    It takes very little to pose a challenge to their class membership — a questioning of whether or not they’re firmly enough committed to liberal social values, to get them to back down and begin making apologies.

    When you look at people like Paul Ryan, the whole point of their “conservative agenda” seems to be to accomplish every single Action Item on the liberal checklist, but through, allegedly, more conservative means (such as “market-based mechanisms” — this is how Romney, obviously a High Avatar of this class, wound up passing the “conservative version of universal health care,” RomneyCare, which ultimately gave us ObamaCare).

    And this is why I keep saying, over and over, that Rubio People Are Silly. Marco Rubio never talked about any real conservative principle. He never attempted to upset any political applecarts or further any conservative ends.

    He was always the conservagtive candidate you could show off to your Liberal Friends — and your friends are your culture-makers and class-mores enforcers — to prove you were “one of the good ones” and “not like those other unsophisticated, racist conservatives.”

    And that was it. That was what he brought to the table.

    That was his selling point.


    His big claim to political fame — where he actually exerted himself to accomplish something — was being the Salesman for the ultimate progressive agenda item, free and unopposed migration into America by whoever managed to get across the border.

    And his job was to sell that as a “deeply conservative” proposition.

    Obviously, Ted Cruz was not a good replacement for Rubio in this respect; Cruz was “one of the crazy ones,” and thus marked his supporters as “one of the bad conservatives,” one of the people who love Jesus and crazy shit like that.

    And for a lot of us, this sort of candidate-most-acceptable-to-the-establishment’s-liberal-pals model isn’t cutting it any longer.

    As I’ve grown older, I’ve found myself giving fewer and fewer fucks about what my social cohort might think about this or that. I am willing to make fewer and fewer accommodations to get along. I am willing to do less and less just to fit in with the liberal crowed, and keep on the “good conservative” list.

    There are simply too many people in the commanding positions of conservative leadership who are very concerned about keeping on the Liberal Friend White List.

    Trump won because when a Native American activist (posing as a journalist) declared that “Pocahantas” was “very offensive” as used in regard to Elizabeth Warren — dishonestly, I might add, as everyone knows the term is used to deny she’s an Indian, not to denigrate her as an Indian, and everyone knows this, and only a liar pretends otherwise — Trump did not begin falling over himself to make apologies and keep the well-wishes of the increasingly unreasonable left-wing hegemony.

    He just began making fun of the stupid silly bitch for being a stupid silly bitch.

    People are fucking tired of walking around on eggshells and being made to apologize for every fucking goddamn thing in the world.

    And what we increasingly want is a political leadership that tells the Grievance Mongers and Offense Farmers to shut the fuck up and get bent rather than explaining to them how a Conservative Version of Political Correctness Can Achieve All the Good Things That Liberal Political Correctness Can Achieve, But Using Market-Based Mechanisms.

    I want to identify as a woman so I can have his baby.

    OT. And I need some advice.
    Had a weally, weally weird déjà vu moment Wednesday night while being administered the California Oath of Office as an appointee to a local commission. While publicly swearing it realized it was the VERY SAME oath taken over 60 years earlier when I became a Deputy Sheriff. That was the déjà vu part.
    The advice needed is does being a TCH’er disqualify me from being able to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of California against all enemies, (etc)”? IOW should I resign?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Nope. California needs you. You’re one of the good guys😀

        • Mt.Laurel says:


          You may not be as alone as you think. The agency I work for is a non profit will appointed board (all the jurisdictions in VA ) and the split is almost even. Most are moderates with a few wingers from each side. The practical moderates have learned they can speak up. And this is in metro DC where crazies come to roost; and now never leave – just switch “sides” when terms are up.

  21. helenk3 says:

    my dad was part of this. He came home on a hospital ship. Until I saw this i did not realize just what he and his buddies went through. It is long but worth watching. Most people do not know about this part of the war

    • elliesmom says:

      My dad traveled through Africa, Italy, France, and Germany. He shared a lot of “family friendly” stories over the years. When he was very ill and in the hospital near the end of his life, he happened to get an old time newspaper reporter for a roommate. The reporter recorded an oral history with my dad in the days they shared a room. After my dad died, the reporter sent us the tape. We discovered my dad was the recipient of a Bronze Star for going behind enemy lines and setting up communications for the troops who would be arriving. He helped liberate POW camps in Germany. He returned to the United States aboard a POW transport ship with a lot of the guys he had help set free. When the ship entered NY harbor, the men were amazed the Statue of Liberty was still standing. Their German captors had told them it had been destroyed.

  23. Venus says:

    The bomb probably saved my grandfather’s life – gunner in the US Navy in the Pacific. Enlisted at 18 years old at start of WW2. Awarded 2 Purple Hearts and various other medals for valor. One time his ship was sunk and he treaded water for hours (others were eaten by sharks) until he was rescued, where he was promptly place on an island, handed a gun and told to “go help the Marines take this island” which entailed hand-to-hand combat.

      How sweet. Moments like that bring tears to my eyes, too.
      The last day I sat for Calamity she greeted me singing “Peace and love and harmony on earth”. I don’t know if she made it up, or learned it from her other gramma. But it was sweet, as well. She is 2. She’ll go to preschool next spring after she turns 3.
      I hope there will be peace on earth in my lifetime. But it doesn’t look promising.

    Very very very proud. My skunk made a mature rational decision. Girl at school has some serious emotional issues. Very dominating and often cruel. I am astonished with what she gets away with. Little boy actually made a suicide threat because she is so mean.10 years old wishing his own death. Irony her mom ran the bully program. I have not a clue as to how to rause a child. I can only be honest with her. I speak at her as some shit is not open to discussion but I also listen and let her know I fundamentally believe in her. Ifeel like I am constantly holding my breath. Big party this weekend. Crud woke meup to inform me she would not be in attendance. I said and why is that baby girl. I had to hide my laughter as she said it was beneath contempt that adults would exclude three children from a yuuuge party. Three kids not invited. She articulated rather well that a party that shuns a child is not a place she wants to be. I was asleep when she woke me. Obvious she had spent time thinking it through. How fucking blessed am I? Cretin has a soul. Trust me her dad is borderline and her mom was a cutter. Personally I think cutters are borderline. I have feared she might be genetically disposed towards monstrosity. I had to grapple with she might be fucked up. Such a relief to sense she has genuine spirit. I did not sit on my ass waiting for her to exhibit a reason to lock her up in a padded cell. I thank God for ballet and Tae Kwon Do. There was this little individual that despite my overtures I could not reach. Her mom did not call her for three years. She has a brother and sister that her mom kept. I was never going down that pity path. No fucking way did I give up a decade of my life so she could be an emotional cripple. Dance and martial arts provided her with a solid core. To thine own self be true. Sadly you have to know yourself tobe true. Monkey is in charge of who she is. I will always be Catholic. I might be a middle aged f a g but I will always be Catholic. It’s who I am. Stung to look at my charge and feel pride. I have no right to be vainglorious about her development. I am thankful that I was able to reach my little demon. Come on how many thrown away little girls get a great gay uncle with a well above average IQ that had multiple open hearts. Had an outhouse and lived in Manhatten for 20 years. I’m gonna go out on a limb and say 2.5. I love this blog because it feels good to read people that are human but direct. There has been many a day where I have thought this is enough. I don’t quit on my baby girl. But you bet I want to. I read Somebody, Vmom, Jadzia so many others and it gives perspective. I cannot be all things all the time. It is beyond refreshing to hear exhaustion from others. Like a pressure valve. I can believe and love my crud but one needs a break. Caring for a kid 24/7 is the hardest job in the world unless of course you majored in womens studies and think your kid is a virus.

    • dm says:

      There is a line from a movie – which my senior brain is not recalling – that goes a little something like this…as hard as you think it’s going to be, as hard as people tell you it’s going to be, it is SO much harder…yeah, parenting…exhausting, frustrating, exhilarating, rewarding, disappointing, and so much more…nothing compares…no regrets.

      • mothy67 says:

        Sometimes it sucks. Yo have no idea which way is up. It’s nice to read that others are also struggling. I cannot remember a day before her, but jesus I would like a day off.

        • leslie says:

          Liking/needing a day off is reasonable and normal no matter how great your kid (or kids). I read your posts of Shay and think what a great guy you are and just how lucky your “crud” is. You both have grown up to be amazing people. And it is damn hard work to accomplish what you both have accomplished.
          She is awesome.

        • dm says:

          Anyone who claims they aren’t “struggling” are lying, or living in an alternate reality. There is no real “handbook”, and I have made plenty of mistakes and even though my kids are now adults – independent, woo hoo! – I will probably make a few more before I check out. All we can hope to do in the long run is provide them with an example of what good parenting looks like more than what bad parenting looks like…my kids have seen both, but I think I provided more of the good than the bad and I think they both understand that – all without the benefit of therapy, so double woo hoo!!

          • mothy67 says:

            I assume because I am a certified nackass I was remiss in expessing my gratitude. There are days when I look at my alarm clock and I doubt I have the strenfgth to hit snooze. It is tough as hell raising a kid. I have never known so much fear. I was afraid of everything. My elitist friends pump their kids with drugs but call me abusive. My kid is insulted I am an asshole. She thinks for herself. Some tool at Stanford(yep I was roommate with the dean) assumes she can tell me dick about my brat. I freely admit over the years I had no clue. I would actually weep and beg god to help me. Pup was so tiny I was afraid if I loved her I might break her. I was so pathetic I made an x and formed fists and punched myself in the shoulder. I was so afraid of this little girl. She was so tiny. I feared if I picked up I might hurt her. What I find profound is that she knows how desperately I love her. The knowledge is reflected in her eyes.
            My point was sometimes it is very tough. It is so hard to make sense of it. Toss off I reD Somebody opting to take part in her grand childrens lifr. Iread about a mother that does not turn away from a daughter on heroin. There is special Greg and votermom has child the older and child the younger. We all adore Lily and we all follow back surgery. Sometimes I think my back is sturdy and strong I do get tired. The exhaustion you feel when giving life is is extreme. I recall being so tired in Paris. I could not explain I wS not sleepy. I felt like every molecule of my body had been torn away I had nothing left to give. Sapped. Same guy who sat in Hyde Park saying I have nothing left bickers with a brat everyday. I might be an awful slug but I care about you peeps travails.

    I am gay. I have never hid it. I love Milo. I should say I am an asshole. So Milo is making lots of noise. My friend from Japan told me he violates her. Why because he is gay. I am an awful person. Decades I was silenced. . Milo makes me laugh.

    Diana West writes:

    As with every other key issue in 2016, this conversation — who should control foreign policy? — emerges only as a consequence of the populist candidacy of Donald Trump. In his recent foreign policy address, Trump made it clear he would he see all relations with the nations of the world through the prism of “America First” — a shocker in our age of unquestioned globalism. He stipulated he would also be seeking advice from outside the circle of elites Thomas is writing in defense of — “rather than surrounding myself with those who have perfect resumes but very little to brag about except responsibility for a long history of failed policies and continued losses at war.”

    A new day dawns, almost. I hope Trump continues to widen the scope of the debate about foreign policy, and make it more central to Americans generally.

    I hate to say this because I wish I had been a better man. My grand niece was born in a bad place. Very bad. Heroin. She is fine. Straight A’s but I left children behind. No excuse. I saw despair. I looked away. I do not give a rats ass about money. Just do not care. Feed fucking kids. I had 28 million. So absurd. I do not have 28 million. My trust owns 28 million of my estate. My estate is worth 1700 dollars.

    So many questions about this sign. The English is too good ? The Cartel is threatening him? How is he a threat to the Cartel unless he’s enforcing laws already on the books? Where’s the media (I’ve seen this photo everywhere) ? Why is the media only covering the idiots being hammered by the police for being idiots?

    Has anyone ever watched Bitten. The female lead is unreal.she is so stunning. Its a campy Canadian series about werewolves. Kind of fun.

    Probably old news about Milo at DePaul, but interesting how CPD were told to stand down, same with campus security.
    Odd that police obeyed University administrators.
