Excuse me for butting in, Swampie, but your stories do not add up. If we suppose that Japanese bom ...

Seriously, senny.  Ever since knowing that you are a commission-earning tourist guide, I am at a loss as to how to talk to you intelligently.

Now, I understand why Robert is so frustrated with you.

We, in Asia, are flourishing and getting richer and richer WITHOUT you gweilos' presence or interference.

Do we need you ?

FACT: you're good RIDDANCE (totally UNRELIABLE) !

PS: quite apparently, you don't even have the money to pay for History Channel subscription, do you ? {:soso_e128:}{:soso_e128:}  Oh, poor commission-earning tourist guide friend, seneca, so low in intelligence ! {:soso_e136:}{:soso_e136:}

For the sake of some history lesson to our poor commission-earning tourist guide friend, seneca, here is for free:-



During World War II, Penang, then a British island garrison, suffered devastating aerial bombardments and finally fell to invading Japanese forces on 17 December 1941 as the British withdrew to Singapore after declaring George Town an open city.[30] Penang under Japanese occupation was marked by widespread fear, hunger, and massacres which targeted the local Chinese populace.[30][31] Especially feared was the Japanese military police Kempeitai and its network of informants. Penang was administered by four successive Japanese governors, beginning with Lt-Gen Shotaro Katayama.[32] Penang also served as a U-boat base for the Monsun boats in the Indian Ocean for Japan's ally, Germany during the War.[33] The destruction of the Penang Secretariat building by Allied bombing in the final months of the Occupation caused the loss of the greater part of the British and Japanese records concerning the island, causing enormous difficulties to compile a comprehensive history of Penang.[34] Following Japanese surrender in the War, on 21 August 1945 the Penang Shimbun published the statement of capitulation issued by the Emperor. The official British party reached Penang on 1 September, and after a meeting between the Commander-in-Chief of the East Indies Fleet and Rear-Admiral Uzumi on 2 September, a detachment of the Royal Marines landed and occupied the island on 3 September. A formal ceremony to signify British repossession of Penang took place on Swettenham Pier on 5 September 1945.[34

[edit] Independence and afterThe British returned at the end of the war and was intent to consolidate its rule over its possessions in British Malaya into a single administrative entity called the Malayan Union, but by then British prestige and image of invincibility were already severely dented. The Malayan Union was vehemently rejected by the people, and the Federation of Malaya was formed in its place in 1948, uniting the then Federated Malay States, Unfederated Malay States, and the Straits Settlements of which Penang was a part. Independence seemed an inevitable conclusion. Nonetheless, the idea of the absorption of the British colony of Penang into the vast Malay heartland alarmed some quarters of the population. The Penang Secessionist Movement (active from 1948 to 1951) was formed to preclude Penang's merger with Malaya, but was ultimately unsuccessful due to British disapproval. Another attempt by the secessionists to join Singapore as a Crown Colony was also unfruitful.[35] The movement was spearheaded by, among others, the Penang Chinese Chamber of Commerce, the Penang Indian Chamber of Commerce, and the Penang Clerical and Administrative Staff Union.[36]

Second World War

World War II, on the other hand, unleashed unparalleled social upheaval on Penang. With news of the imminent attack of the Japanese, the European population was evacuated beforehand, leaving the rest of Penang's population to suffer under a brutal Japanese occupation, causing much disillusionment and injury to the British prestige and image of invincibility. The British withdrawal left the defenceless island in the hands of a State Committee which had to subdue a three-day civil unrest. Penang was captured by Japanese forces invading from the north through Thailand on 19 December 1941, one of the key stages of the Battle of Malaya, days after having neutralised American sea power at Pearl Harbor. Three and a half years of rule of terror ensued. Many of the local populace fled to the interior and plantations to escape from Japanese atrocities, of which many were reported and documented. During this occupation, Penang was governed by four successive Japanese governors, starting with Shotaro Katayama.

Seneca, our poor commission-earning tour guide, did you read posts #62 and #63?

Now you believe I was telling the truth.


It said the SHAMELESS British wanted to take back control of Penang AFTER THE WAR  ............. only to face VEHEMENT resistance from the people of Penang.


So, indeed, the British got BOOTED OUT (from Asia).  That is clear.

My theory is that alicebrooke was banned so that an imposter could assume her identity.

Alice was banned and her writings removed, later the writings were reinstated but alice did not come back right away.  Her avatar was changed and her channel was locked.  The new Alice is not intelligent like our Alice was.  Something funny going on here.
