    This is really good info, if only it gets published on newspapers, history books and be taught in schools all over the world and let people know the true horror the Japanese did. I myself am a Chinese and i know people who had experienced the Japanese occupation. it is really sad of what went on in WW2 and that the government should admit to it publicly towards the globe.

    No one in the world will punish the Japanese since they are all receiving some kind of benefit from them and are afraid to be cut off.
    Especially U.S. of A., out of all the nations in the world.
    You thought the holocaust was bad, that was like a kid hittin another kid if you compare to what the Japanese have done during WW1 & 2.

    And In Malaysia; My Father In-law nearly Killed; already put in in the Jude bag filled by stone and were intended sink him to the South China Sea.There are few stories that I can contribute and to prevent those Human animal being free by the American or British or Israelis.And Strangely…… most of Japanese student didn’t know about this Barbadian act, so How they could learn being living in this part of our EARTH ?????

    Hello,

    I am interested in information on Japanese troop strength in China at the time of the nuclear attacks. What was the state of the war in China? Were the Japanese losing at that point or were they maintaining their position or gaining. There is no information available.
    I am also interested in information regarding Japanese super dirigibles. Did they have them? Did they use them in China?
    I am unable to find anything about the actual battles in China in ’44 and ’45.
    I am trying to verify an incredible story I have been made aware of. I understand the Japanese Army actually had 7 small undeployed aircraft carriers in 1945 which could have been used against the US invasion forces. Again I can find nothing to either verify or discredit the story.

    Thank you very much.

    resistance groups successively destroyed many Japan military ammunition factory sites. Evil Japan military raided and kidnapped thousands of young men and women from Chinese villages, and tied their hands behind their backs. Then shipped them to isolated island with a high security prison and locked up in cells at night, and forced to labour job making metal parts for Japanese military bombs and storaged tanks for their secret deadly chemical weapons. It was hell because the brutal Japanese soldiers treated Chinese civilians like pig animals, and beat them in torture chambers. Japan military killed all who tried to escape this maximum security prison island; the only Chinese to get out was dead person.

    In the past several decades of year during WWI and WWII, Japan accumulated its wealth by robbing vast amounts of natural and human slavery resources from the countries and territories where it colonized. People in the world nowadays mostly saw and admired Japan’s success in technology and economy but are ignorant and indifferent about the historical facts that Japan’s progress was historically built upon other people and countries’ blood; lives; resources; indescribable pain and suffering.

    Obviously, Japan has continuously made a lot of effort to block anyone’s attempt to reveal the horrific and inhuman war crimes that it committed. It even created distorted facts to deny all its wrong doings in all the history books taught and stored in its schools and libraries. This brainwashing method has been effectively applied on the colonized people and on Japanese citizens very well.

    Japan perpetrated an unforgivable horrible inhuman war crime during WWI and WWII. There are no suitable words to describe its atrocious acts on people in the conquered countries. It had tortured, poisoned, buried alive and killed millions of human beings. It captured women from the colonized countries to serve as sex slaves for its army, most of the victims are Chinese and Korean.

    After WWII, Japanese war criminals were supposed to be prosecuted and brought to justice by UN but in 1948, US government, for its own advantage, ordered a stop to the prosecution thus letting the head criminal Emperor Hirohito and thousands of Japanese war criminals free from being trialed and punished for war crime. Due to this, USA became a savior of Japan’s face and due to this, USA and Japan became very good friends since then.

    Following are some historical quotes that you can find from searching on internet,

    “The Japanese who conducted the ghastly biological experiments on live prisoners of war at Unit 731 escaped prosecution because General MacArthur wanted their advanced research in biological and chemical warfare made available to the US military. With the full knowledge of the American government, MacArthur offered immunity from prosecution to the military commander and staff of the biological unit in return for their research. Many of the Unit 731 scientist/war criminals were able later to secure research appointments at prestigious Japanese universities.”

    President Harry Truman issued a halt to the prosecution in 1948 based on the reason that “administration of a defeated Japan would be greatly facilitated if the emperor appeared to be cooperating with the occupying Allied powers. This could not happen if the emperor was charged and convicted of war crimes”. The freeing of the crime committed by Japanese’s king infers that Japanese people were free of war guilt also.”

    Similar to Germany which was against Jews, Japan committed a bloody holocaust on Chinese people. Unlike Germany, Japan is truly an evil and wicked coward. It never feels guilty and apologizes; it denied all its crimes; it fabricated wrong facts and made tremendous effort to block the truth from being revealed and told.

    Unfortunately, Japan was politically helped and protected by its Western allies who were once its colonist friends.

    … ever since the deliberate mass bombing of civilians in the second world war, and as a direct response to it, the international community has outlawed the practice. It first tried to do so in the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949, but the UK and the US would not agree since to do so would have been an admission of guilt for their systematic “area bombing” of German and Japanese civilians.
