All that may well be true generally speaking ….. BUT no matter how hard Japan tries to showcase or package itself, Japan has a blight and it is a serious one ……
Japan has a blight and it is a very SERIOUS one, quite INDELIBLE …. so much so that its leader today would not dare face up to it. Cowardly and quite dishonourably, they try to delete this indelible blight by falsifying History through doctoring their school history textbooks.
Yes, the BLIGHT of Japan that I am referring to is her CRIMES committed in 1937 (and well-documented) on the Rape of Nanking and for *starting* the Second World War ….
“When the Japanese army invaded China in the summer of 1937, it launched not just Asians but everyone toward a world war that would engulf the Eurasian continent and the oceans around it for the next 8 years. Japan’s undeclared war on China started in 1931 with its occupation of Manchuria,
But the brief attack on Beijing in July 1937 set in motion the events that would push the world to war. ….”
More on the blights of Japan …..
Many feared what the Japanese might do when it entered the capital (Nanjing), but NONE anticipated the SCALE OF THE VIOLENCE that the soldiers would unleash on the civilian population. …..
A postwar investigation that the Nanjing District completed in April 1946 put the death toll at 295,525 people. Men counted for 76% of the victims, women 22%, and children 2% - although the last (referring to the children) were surely the hardest to trace and will always remain sadly undercounted.
If people did not expect the treatment they received, they knew enough to realize that the Japanese occupation would be HOSTILE.
As early as November, when Japanese airplane steeped up their bombing of Nanking, Chinese who could leave the capital ahead of the retreating government and its army did so. But many were too poor or too tied by family obligations to take off.
Some chose to stay in their homes and HOPE that the Japanese would respect their status as surrendered civilians, rather than face the uncertainties of refugee flight …
