Hiroshima Nanking Manila Apologies –President Barack Obama kicked off the Memorial Day weekend for 2016 by apologizing for ending World War II.
So when are the Japanese going to apologize — at least in a way that seems sincere — for starting it? And for the vile things they did which would be unimaginable if they had not actually done them?
Consider the Nanking Massacre. Up to 300,000 civilians including women and children were murdered face to face after suffering sexual abuse and torture.
How about the Manila Massacre in which between 100,000 and 500,000 Filipinos were murdered on the verge of the city’s liberation. Yes, this also included raping and torturing children.
How about subjecting people — including U.S. POWs — to twisted scientific experiments?
They almost make the Nazis look good.
Most people who lived through World War II figured Hiroshima and Nagasaki were small time payback and that Japan really didn’t get anything close to what it actually deserved.
