Yup you got that right.
The non SS German troops were upstanding dudes. Too bad they had to be foe. The Japanese were nuts.

I have to wonder, what will it take for Japan to drop is ridiculous denial of it's crimes. Not even a list of lame excuses has been offered to the victims, and nothing even close to an apology. I think that in their denial of Warcrimes in WW2, Japan makes itself completely incomprehensible to both East and West. It would be like Germany adopting a policy stating that the existence of Forced Labor and Concentration Camps were the fanciful invention of the victorious Allies.

Arh~~~why moving this thread to another room? it seems like not many people r giving attention of this topic, which we should discuss the most nowadays.

The Japanese were too over to the Asians. Japanese disturbance over Korean and Chinese started in Ming Dynasty, where one time Japanese invaded Korea and Ming came over to help. Luckily Korea was secure at that time.

Also, the Japanese pirates went to the near China shores(Ming dynasty) and cause many destruction to the Ships, the local people. And thus the Ming Emperor decided to lock off the sea trading line, and Ming at that time started to become weak.

There was a Japanese comic drawer maded a comic realte about the Nanjing massacre. In the comic they were 2 soldiers doing "Hundred Mem-Behead" and more details story wasn't beeen told. This comic had already been banned by the Japanese right-wing and was condemmed by them. They even wanted the Comic drawer apologize for this.

Reveal just a bit of the real truth is wrong?

Altough Japanese do not have proper troops. But they have very good scientific archievement in their military field. heir Weapon were high tech enuff to beat many countries. We must be noticing about this.

when faced agnist the japanese techonlogy greatness( i must be slapping myself and saying this at the same time) the chinese regular, trained to the extreme armed with the newly produced assult rifle, wearing the new uniform, with the nationlistc feeling inside, with teh desire to fight, are ready to own japan...

when a human has a desire to fight, it always turns in good and the enemy is defeated...

not saying japanese has no desire to fight... but the chinese will never invade japan, unless its the land they took from china...

Japanese Atrocities were worse. What gives the Nazi's a worse name than the Japanese is that the Nazi's became 'open' after the war and told of all the horrible things they did so its more common knowledge, The Japanese however refuse to admit it. (eg. When you watch that video at the USS Arizona memorial the Japanese tourists act all shocked like they have never heard about what they did in the war).

That and like someone else said, the German Soldier was respectable and the German atrocities were commited by the Death camp SS.

Yeah the Japanese were terrible to captured soldiers. Unlike the Germans who put many uniformed soldiers into prisoner of war camps and treated them comparativly well (i know that isn't true across the board, but it seems to be the majority).

The Japanese had forced death marches, the massacres of Australian soldiers, forced work on the Burma railway and hellfire pass, and the treatment of Australians in places like Changi. It was absolutley horrific.

thesen r a few points in my mind, feel free to disagree.

all jews, and other groups (i think communists, slavs and homosexuals) were gathered and butchered...
for the japanese it was a land grab, and they massacred people as they went along...

the difference is that for japan they were just killing and abusing anyone in their path.

wheras the nazis were choosing those they didnt like, imo "scapegoats", they rounded them up like cattle and massacred and tortured them, this is where we first see the term "Genocide" being used. infact the word was invented to describe what the germans did.

why the jews plight gets more attention?
well because they have made it a strong issue, and followed it... even though the paltry compensation they get will never make up for lost loved ones and pshcyological pain (if ure parents are children of holocaust survivors you will know what i mean) its still more than what the chinese have got, and all the power to these people.
also another reason why i think the chinese havent got the recognition nor payment from japan or the west is because as you guys should recall after WW2 communism became the enemy, china became the enemy of the west, and the west was willing to forgive japan for its attrocities and help its economy because it feared the rise of communism.

this next bit is on topic with what i read, but off topic with the rest of my post, ask yourselves would US ever test its nukes on Europe? i highly doubt it, (race issues might be part of it)... but they nuked japan.
now i always defend america on that decision.
nuking caused 100000 deaths or so. but imagine the death and destruction had america invaded the japan like it did german... with that in mind nuking japan was the right idea at the time.
and anyways you might not know this, but japan had cutting edge biological weapons, they tested it in china killing 250000 chinese. offcourse the head of this ruthless group that did the biological weapons knew what he had to do to survive and that was to not use bio weps on USA (usa already used nukes), but instead share tech (like german rocket scientists did) and have a nice life.
imagine if they launched these bio bombs using their balloon system or from japanese subs... instantly you could have everyone in the los angeles urban area dead, they perfected how to blow these bombs in the air without killing the majority of the bacteria. its a good thing japan got nuked before they were confident eneugh to use bio weps.
