Red blogule to US - Japan erasers

As they celebrated the 60th anniversary of liberation from Japan and listened to Koizumi repeat the same empty excuses for an excuse as his predecessor ten years ago, Koreans learned why they couldn't get the proof of major wartime atrocities committed by Japan.
They knew the proof was in the US, they now know why it landed there in the first place : the US purchased all data related to Japan's sick medical experiments on civilians of occupied countries. Actually, they bribed the perpetrators to get the exclusivity and even granted them immunity for this favor. This completed the scandalous Hiroshima-Nagasaki cleanup : you don't sue us for using weapons of mass destruction against your civilians, we don't sue you for committing atrocities on civilians from other countries. The 1951 San Francisco Treaty put an ultimate lid on this sick stew between one of History's most fascist regimes and the World's most cynical country.
Sixty years have passed and Japan is just realizing it may have to postpone its
claim for a permanent seat at the UN council. Ten years from now, all witnesses and survivors to their atrocities will have vanished. Japan's radical old guard too, but they've made sure younger generations got overwhelmed by their forgetful propaganda and textbooks.
The US ? Don't worry about them : they know propaganda by heart. Hell : it didn't take them sixty years to have most people believe they defeated the Nazis singlehandedly (if it weren't for another master in propaganda - Vladimir Putin - who would remember the lighter side of Uncle Joe ?). And if you ask US citizens about the use of WMDs or torture against civilians, they point the finger to some far away Evil.


  1. damn good blog, check out mine http://juicyfruiter.blogspot.com, comments always welcome!

  2. Very intriguing and eye-opening post. No matter how accustomed I've become to the depth of underhanded policies governments (most notably my own) use, I'm still shocked when they're spelled out right in front of my face.

    I am left wishing for some links, so I can investigate further.

  3. That's a tricky issue and the web is full of info/intox from both sides.
    My opinion :
    - Japanese atrocities are facts
    - the possession of Japanese "experiments" files by the US are facts (most were given back in 1958)
    - the existence of a deal between the US and members of the infamous Unit 731 is a fact
    - but all the details of this deal are not clear

    I would recommand the Wikipedia article on Unit 731
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_731). It's wiki and thus cannot be totally trusted but it gives a rather balanced view of the issue which would anyway deserve much further research.

    Besides Wikipedia links :

    Among scores of partisan websites (generaly Korean or Chinese) :

    Among many books :
    "Factories of Death: Japanese Biological Warfare 1932-45 and the American Cover-Up" (Sheldon H. Harris - Routledge, 1994)
    "Hirohito and the Making of Modern Japan" (Herbert P. Bix)


Thank you for your comments and your patience. I welcome critics, but spam, commercial links, and outrageously heinous messages will not pass the cut (I have had my share of each, allow me to spare my readers)
