Japan killed some people during a war?

I am shocked. But really I don't even hold pearl harbour against them. A brilliantly executed attack that failed only because the carriers weren't in port. We really had it coming. Who the hell were we to say they couldn't invade China or that we could blockade them. You have to let it go man.

Are you South Korean? They hate the Japanese for no good reason also.

Even if they, 70 years later, haven't owned up, faced, and admitted everything did they did? Last opportunity was missed for them to do this and that was barely 2 weeks ago. http://edition.cnn.com/2015/08/15/asia/japan-wwii-anniversary/

One of the main gripes; capturing anything between 20,000 to 410,000 women from another country for pleasure and human experimentation. I'm making the assumption you think it's "anything goes" when at war? Also sign me up for sources.

Could i get a source to the U.S. blockade on japan? It sounds interesting to me.

Ok poor choice of words. Embargo or some such equivalent bullshit. Either way we had no legal right to strangle their economy.

Certainly today's hate from some of their neighbors is, seventy years after the facts, unwarranted. But downplaying some of the shit they did during ww2 is just wrong and shows bias.

I'm not talking about pearl harbour, anything military is sorta fair game in a war. But the civilian population was treated like garbage everywhere they invaded and the rape of nanjing (seriously, click the link above) is only the most shocking example.

Your mostly right, but I am not particularly biased. I just think they are great. Do they have kids so ft they literally cannot breath? Or children so drugged out they cannot talk? Or drive by shooting killing babies?

We should hope to have as little blood on our hands as they.

I know someone already called out your dismissal, but seriously... did you look at things like the rape of nanjing? Unit 731?

We are not talking about combatants but women raped while their beheaded children sat beside them, only to be killed themselves after being used(Or worse, taken for permanent sex slaves). Babies stuck on the ends of bayonets, mass torture, and wholesale murder of civilians.

But really I don't even hold pearl harbour against them. A brilliantly executed attack that failed only because the carriers weren't in port. We really had it coming. Who the hell were we to say they couldn't invade China or that we could blockade them. You have to let it go man.

As for Pearl Harbor, we were vastly more entitled to use economic means to stop their slaughter of the chinese. In your weird twisted view invading a country and breaking every law of war is fine but not trading with them and freezing their local assets is somehow terrible? Dude, you are blinded by your love of the japanese.

Are you South Korean? They hate the Japanese for no good reason also.

I am American. I don't hate the japanese at all. I really like their media and culture at large.

Did not know SK people disliked them though, so I just looked it up and it appears they were under japanese imperial rule until the end of WW2. I would assume their dislike is for similar reasons to the Chinese dislike.

I know so much about their atrocities in WW2 because I researched it heavily after one of the chinese/japanese disputes over some islands. Japan did REALLY terrible Nazi-level shit and very many of them skirt around acknowledging it.

I just wanted to temper your "The japanese are the master race that deserve great fortune and are resilient gods" stance. I exaggerate, but you get my point.

Evolutionary imperative. Japan was like the amoeba in a Petri dish growing in solution with another amoeba strain.

Only one can be the dominate bacterial colony. Only so much sucrose to be metabolised.
