I do believe that the media can be duped, but I think that they have a responsibility to those to whom they report to make sure that they're information is accurate. How many times have you heard of something on the news, only to find out that it was a)FUBAR b)A total lie c) A prank gone bad.

BTW I am not a conspiracy theorist, I just think that we should not swallow everything the media gives us, and take everything with nothing less than a pound of salt.

You'd kinda have to figure it was a hoax in this case. I suppose that the true story of Lt. Hiroo Onoda would tend to make one believe that another such case would have happened. But it would seem a bit of a jump from 30 year with Lt. Hiroo Onoda, to 60 years to the story that turned out to be a hoax.

If you were in the jungle and at war one of the first questions you would ask if you met any one would be "How is the war going, who's winning". Well they must have heard that the war was over and that country had not been looted or pillaged by the Americans,, so why not go home. The idea that crosses my mind is that these men were deserters and were frightened to return home.
It's not that,it's because they thought that what they were hearing on the radio about the war being over was just propaganda,a ploy to lure them out and capture them.If you take a look at it,that's a actually a pretty good trick.
