Here's my question -

Why were all these nations that were enslaved for centuries suddenly gained their long awaited & rightful
Independence not long after the war between Colonial Powers and Japan ?

Just an coincidence, or what ? !

The good, the bad & the ugly! When crony capitalists rule, or ruin the world,things turn upside down.The good become the bad, the bad & ugly turn good. What a world we live in!

Here's my question -


India to Indonesia were free in and around 1948, a couple years after war.

Japan went all the way to face colonial bullies all out fronts of South-East Asia, both mainland Indochina and islands, and a to get rid of Western colonial disease that had been lingering on in Asia for so long.
Getting rid of permanent colonization of Australia&NewZealand in Asia Pacific region that rightfully belong to people of Asia-Pacific was probably next in the plan, but unfortunately they were facing against evil enemies ten times stronger, in terms of resources and manpower.

The point is - if we didn't do it who would?

Wolves will be wolves. With wolves roaming around, there's NO way the innocent world will survive, let alone prosper. The world community must be united to empower them.

Big brother could help little one and vice versa in mutually benefitial relationship between the two.


Carrot & Stick,Bunny & Bully: What happen to bunnies if the bullies carry big sticks, and get to hold of almost all the carrots around? That's our world, now and then.

I guess it's understandable that Asians keep thinking about their past sufferings. But, with a strong independent China, an industrialized Japan and a more slowly advancing India, the whole situation has changed. Focusing on past sufferings risks slowing preparations for a better future. It gives rise to narrow nationalistic feelings that inhibit progressive diplomacy.
What's on your mind...

- Around 5 million Vietnamese civilians perished as a direct result of the war.

   The war in Indochina has long been over for some forty years, but those landmines planted during the war are still
injuring  or killing innocent people in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam by about three people per day on average ever since.
