I was in a bar with some American exchange students a couple of weeks ago. One of these guys was wearing a US Army t-shirt, and they all had distinctive American accents. A while later a couple of rather drunk Japanese men walked over to us, noticed they were Americans and demanded that they “apologise for Hiroshima!”
I was very taken aback by that, and even more surprised when one of the guys reponded sympathetically. My first thought about the Japanese was: “How about you bastards first apologise for Nanjing, Manchuria, Taiwan, Shanghai, Pearl Harbour, Korea…”
Today, I came across this very gruesome and hard-hitting read:
In many ways, the Japanese ‘Holocaust’ was probably even more horrific than the Nazi Holocaust. Do you think there is not enough of this taught in schools? I don’t think the extent of Japanese atrocities are well known by most people, the least of which, the new-age Japanese themselves.
