It's big in Japan

By Capt. Fogg

'm resigned to the fact that people like Mel Gibson and Arthur Butz will continue for reasons known only unto them to insist that Hitler's death camps were not there to exterminate Jews and Gypsies and other decadent races. The world still remembers though. The world has seen the photos, the films, the books, the memorials, the gas chambers themselves. Holocaust denial is not accepted by most in America and is illegal in Germany although many here would like to stop hearing about it.

It's big in Japan though, the redaction of history for the purpose of resurrecting Japan and it's divine Emperor as a heroic nation attacked by those nasty Americans, Chinese, Koreans and Filipinos. Back in march, Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced that even though his government had formerly apologized and offered restitution, all those thousands of Korean women forced into prostitution weren't really forced and that although many thousands died after being relentlessly raped,
they were volunteers.

He's now taken the redaction further. The
Rape of Nanking never happened, says he. China remembers, Korea remembers, all of Asia remembers; has seen the films, the photos, the books. The memory persists in the families of the victims but the most powerful leader of the world's second biggest economy, the country George Bush wants armed with nukes, says it never happened. All history of Japan's heinous aggression and unequaled atrocities will soon disappear from that island and only the memorials to their glorious heroes of WW II will remain. I really am too upset to write more than this -- enjoy your Toyota.
