Historical Background to the Japanese Arrogance & Atrocities in respect of the Nanjing Massacre/The Rape of Nanjing

The Chinese, the oldest existing civilisations in the world, once held the belief that their Emperors were “Sons of Heaven”, as descended from Heaven. In fact, the Emperor was the only one who had the privilege & access to pray to the Heavenly Father, as evidenced by the incredible grand old structure of the Temple of Heaven in the Forbidden City. He had the absolute power & authority
to rule over mankind.


Temple of Heaven

The Japanese, through cultural influence by the Chinese, adopted & adapted many of the traditions as practised by the Chinese as in writing, attire & beliefs. The truth goes beyond the pages of history of a group of hundred young men & women who were sent to Japan by Emperor Qi Huang-ti in search of the medical herb of longevity. Not finding it & for fear of being beheaded back in China, never returned but settled down where they were in Japan. I cannot vouch for the truth of the legend or story, but it’s popularly passed down from generation to generation.

These Japanese, living in the confine of little island nation, always had (perhaps still have) the audacity & arrogance of claiming themselves to be the master of their Asian counterparts. The Chinese were looked down by them as the “sick men of Asia”. Only the Japanese , believed as they did (or do), had the power & heavenly authority to deliver them from the grip & influence of other western nations.

Despite China’s & South Korea’s warnings, displeasure & disapproval, Japanese cabinet ministers (led by their Prime Minister) continue to pay annual homage & honour
to their war dead at the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo. These dead warriors were in fact war criminals of the Second World War.

This provocative act is a direct face slap to the Chinese & the Koreans, whose not only the men but the women as well suffered great atrocities & shame at the Japanese hands during WW2. Hundreds & thousands of women were forced & victimised as “Comfort Women” for the pleasure of the Japanese soldiers. Till today no apologies have been forthcoming from the Japanese let alone monetary compensations. To them, this never happened!


Despite evidences of documentations & living testimonies of the war sufferers, the Japanese maintain that the “Rape of Nanjing” never happened or that the number of murders & killings was much less than 300,000. They even have the audacity to erase much of these evil happenings from the present pages of their history . . . so that the young would never learn of the evilness of the Japanese.

After 77 years of such historical plight, perhaps a little late, but nevertheless a step in the right direction to bear down on the Japanese authorities & their emperor to remind them of their evilness.
For the first time, the Chinese authorities have initiated, instituted & dedicated a National Memorial Day for the Nanjing Massacre Victims.

December 13 would be declared a public holiday, also as remembrance of the “Comfort Women”.

UnknownWould Shinzo Abe, the Japanese Prime Minister, & grandson of the former war criminal who escaped persecution & punishment, continue to deny & ignore this atrocious criminal act?


National Memorial Day – a sign of frostiness with Japan.


Japan’s War Atrocities: “The Asian Auschwitz”

It’s preposterous for the Japanese to ever say that the Nanjing Massacre never happened nor would they apologise in respect of the “Comfort Women” whereby they treated women from China & Korean as prostitutes or sex slaves all for their own glorification. To deny history or worst still is to eradicate & change their history textbooks so that their younger generations would be completely ignorant of their atrocious past, is crime of the highest order & despicable to mankind. It’s time for reconciliation & as a gesture of goodwill to make compensation for their evil misdeeds.


Here’s something even more atrocious & horrible uncovered by Jeffrey Rindskop regarding the Japanese biological experiment activities. EVERY ASIAN SHOULD READ THIS.

Unit 731: The Horrors of the ‘Asian Auschwitz’ and Why You’ve Never Heard of It
November 10, 2014
By Jeffrey Rindskopf
The scientists of Unit 731 called their subjects “matures.” The term translates loosely to “logs” — a telling indication of how they were treated, as pieces of wood rather than living creatures.
Though now called the Asian Auschwitz, Unit 731 was originally known as the “Epidemic and Water Purification Unit,” a deceptively benign name. It was home to the some of the most horrific cases of human experimentation ever recorded.
The sprawling complex, nearly four square-miles in area, is thought to be responsible for roughly 200,000 deaths. Korean and Chinese nationals form the vast majority of the deceased, but the complex in the city of Harbin, now part of Northeast China, also held its fair share of Pacific Islanders, Russians, South East Asians, and Allied POWs.

Unlike its notorious European counterpart, the prisoners of Unit 731 were not held out of prejudice but out of convenience, to facilitate the world’s largest biological warfare program. They were human lab rats, and they died from causes as diverse as germ warfare tests, amputation, explosive weapons testing, and vivisection.
Those inside the compound often died of vivisection. One of the medical researchers involved at Unit 731 explained to Take a Moment the process of vivisection conducted on men, women and children, usually without anesthetic:
I was ordered to wash that person’s body with a deck brush before he or she was taken into the dissection room naked by a member of the special team. The first time, I trembled. One team member was listening to the heartbeat with a stethoscope. One was standing holding a knife. The moment the stethoscope was removed from the ear, a knife went into the body. I did not know, but according to doctors, this timing was very important, because if the timing was wrong, we could get blood all over us, and then we could get infected.
Japanese officials wanted to find out the best way to treat shrapnel wounds in wounded soldiers. This desire to keep their soldiers alive and fighting resulted in some of the most violent deaths of Unit 731. Prisoners were tied to wooden stakes beside a bomb placed at various distances. Researchers detonated the bomb and conducted surgery on those who survived, or else proceeded straight to autopsy.


The prisoners were often used as human targets — for flamethrowers and chemical weapons as well as bombs. They had organs removed while they were still alive, even awake, so experimenters could observe them before decomposition altered their state.
Some prisoners had their arms severed to study the effects of blood loss. Sometimes the limbs were reattached or put on ice  and thawed to observe the rot and gangrene that set in. Other victims were locked in gas chambers filled with chemicals weapons, or placed in giant centrifuges that spun until those inside perished. Scientists hung some upside down until they choked to death. They injected air into their arteries, or horse urine into their kidneys.
Japan’s widespread use of germ warfare began inside Unit 731. The experimenters had the deadly pathogens at their fingertips, but they sought new ways to deliver the pathogens to cause widespread death.
They were successful on several accounts, developing the defoliation bacilli bomb and the flea bomb. These bombs, often made of porcelain, held fleas carrying bubonic plague, anthrax, typhoid, and dysentery. Fleas were bred by the container-full.
The bombs were dropped on parts of China not yet occupied by Japan to contaminate crops and water supplies. Other times, diseases were spread by giving poisoned candies to children. Japanese scientists wearing hazmat suits might come to the infected towns to inspect the dead bodies to test their work and improve upon it in the future.
BBC estimates these biological weapons killed more than 300,000 confused civilians between 1938-1945.

Despite the devastation inside the walls of Unit 731, scientists never ran short of victims.
“There were always 2,000 or 3,000 logs [people] prepared. There were two burning places and there were always burning dead bodies,” said Shoichi Matsumoto, a Unit 731 bomber pilot.

The deaths at Unit 731 and from the resulting biological weapons never received the same press the crimes of Auschwitz and its “angel of death” Josef Mengele did. There were no Nuremberg Trials, and the perpetrators of the experiments were never brought to justice. Many of them, including Unit 731’s commander and sadist mastermind Shiro Ishii, were honored for service to their country.
Once the Japanese surrendered in 1945, the US government dominated Japanese affairs and discovered the extent of their human experiments. The adversarial dynamics of the cold were already setting in at that point. Officials understood that the findings were valuable, however horrific, since they could never conduct such experiments themselves, and must be kept from the Russians at all costs.
The US officials offered the Japanese scientists responsible a deal: immunity from prosecution in exchange for all experimental data. US General Douglas MacArthur wrote President Truman in 1947, saying “additional data, possibly some statements from Ishii probably can be obtained by informing Japanese involved that information will be retained in intelligence channels and will not be employed as ‘War Crimes’ evidence.”
Despite US efforts to keep the data collected from Unit 731’s singularly sadistic experiments from the Russians, Soviet officials learned of the research during their prosecution of 12 Unit 731 leaders. Those men were sentenced to time in a labor camp, and the USSR used their research to construct a biological research facility of their own in Sverdlovsk.
The 12 officials sentenced in Russia were exceptions. Some of the doctors of Unit 731 rose to prominence in Japan’s post-war medical world, abetted by US occupying forces. The Japanese government has never fully acknowledged the atrocities committed . . .
