Japanese and American Medical Experiments, and More:
As we day by day uncover more truth about the fictional sex-slave narrative from World War II, some people still carry racism in their hearts and must find something to hang around the Japanese neck.
And so they say, "But what about Bataan!?" I was in Bataan in January and in my view real war crimes did occur there, though the extent is in question.
Yet each time we say, "But what about Bataan!?" I also remember my walks on the Trail of Tears. The Japanese really did commit criminal acts at Bataan, and we did the same on the Trail of Tears. There was no excuse for either.
And we say, "What about the death railway!?" Well, it really happened. I have been to Kanchanaburi a couple of times and it is my belief that crimes really occurred, just as we kept slaves, and even into the 1950s made blacks sit at the back of buses, and Americans were still lynching blacks.
There was a time in our history that Americans made postcards from photographs at lynchings.
These postcards were made by our American ancestors, and no doubt some are still alive:
And some say, "But what about the Rape of Nanjing!?" Those accusations come mostly from China, which is in credibility deficit, especially in regard to anything relating to Japanese.
The author of the book was Chinese-American, and mentally ill. She committed suicide by shooting herself.
这本“the Rape of Nanjing（南京大屠杀）“书的作者是美籍华人，有精神病。她开枪自己自杀了。
Details about Nanjing should be taken with a grain of salt until audited, and some historians who have audited the events have found much room for doubt about the details. For instance that more people were killed there than even had lived there.
There is no doubt that we all committed war crimes during World War II. Some more than others. Especially the Germans and their death camps and Nazi doctors, and the Russians were utterly savage.
Americans also committed medical crimes against living blacks in the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiments
These experiments were carried out from 1932 to 1972. The subjects were poor black men, and this was done under the guise of helping the greater community.
Or American MKULTRA LSD experiments:
"To observe the effects of the drug on unwitting subjects, they secretly administered LSD to hundreds of mental patients, prisoners, foreign nationals and private American citizens without their consent. In one particularly audacious eight-year program called “Operation Midnight Climax,” the agency set up a string of brothels in San Francisco. Prostitutes would dose their unsuspecting clients, and CIA agents would then monitor the men's behavior from behind two-way mirrors. These government acid tests would continue through most of the 1950s and early 1960s, but the mind-bending effects of LSD were ultimately deemed too unpredictable and unwieldy for use in the field."
The more China and Korea poke at Japan's history, the more we are reminded that China committed the greatest genocides in human history, and this all happened after World War II, and no doubt many of the perpetrators still are in power.
The more we look at Korea's history, the more we realize that Koreans might be many things, but innocent victims they are not.
Justice requires a fair mind, and facts. We continue to research on the ground the narrative about widespread sex slavery. So far this has turned out to be fiction.

Richard Engel: Huffington Post just contacted me about this kidnapping story, asking for an interview.
I read Huffington but am not the right person for this interview.
I know nothing about this allegation, and only know Richard briefly from Iraq. Richard was courageous there but I have no comment, and no information.
Myanmar: 93 year-old lady says Japanese Soldiers treated them like brothers and sisters
I headed from Yangon to Sittang because British and Japanese fought there, and Japanese spent about three years there.
About 400 meters (as the crow flies) from the old bridge that the British blew up in 1941, is a large pagoda. At the pagoda with the monks I found the woman.
I offer this specific information in case some journalist wishes to check my accuracy.
Her mind is sharp and she is very friendly.
She was about 20 when Japanese came. I asked if they committed any sort of crimes and she said no.
She said Japanese Soldiers were very kind and treated them like brothers and sisters, and Japanese taught her husband to speak Japanese and he became an interpreter.
She obviously had and still has great affection for Japanese, and said they often invited Japanese Soldiers to have dinner at their home, and Japanese came.
After the war, she said Japanese soldiers returned to the village for many years and always were welcome.
Later, we found a Japanese cemetery about 200 meters from the blown up bridge.
We climbed up the hill fighting brambles at times and found the old cemetery in complete disrepair.
I would not even know it was a cemetery if the villagers did not say so.
It was a little sad, standing there, thinking these Soldiers were abandoned. I suppose their souls are back at Yasukuni.

As the West Sleeps: "Philippines voices China alarm as US war games begin
"The Philippines voiced alarm Monday about Chinese "aggressiveness" in disputed regional waters as it launched giant war games with the United States that were partly aimed as a warning shot to Beijing.
"Philippine military chief General Gregorio Catapang released what he said were satellite photos of intense recent Chinese construction over seven reefs and shoals in the Spratly archipelago of the flashpoint South China Sea.
"We have compelling reasons to raise our voice to tell the whole world the adverse effects of China's aggressiveness," Catapang told reporters, describing the reclamation and construction activities as "massive".
