And what we did to the Japanses citizens in this country was really farked up.  (Just ask George Tekai).

I know, right?  Can you believe we turned Mr. Sulu gay?  Savages, the lot of us.

mike_d85: I've got to wonder.  Do these people complain about cold eggs and such?  I realize that they lived under the most brutal conditions imaginable wishing for death... but did they ever get over it?  Maybe forget themselves and go "this is the worst day of my LIFE!" because they spilled coffee on themselves, got stuck in traffic, lost their favorite pen, found out their cat was sick, stepped in dog poop, and missed lunch.


You are asking if old Jewish people complain.  Does the pope shiat in the woods?

special20: Yeah, let's not forget the RAF and its campaign of terror.


You don't still have your knickers in a twist about old Bomber Harris and Dresden, do you?

Just started reading this so I'm getting a kick...

You guys hear about this "Hitler" character? Seems like a bad egg. Hope he doesn't get too much power


You want a real good read, I had this book about Hitler's medical history.

His doctor was INSANE.

doglover: hardinparamedic: World War II could be, aptly, described as a war against evil knowing what we know now.

Uncle Sam was no saint, Russian and Red China were on our side, or at least not our enemies...

WW2 wasn't a war against evil. It was a war OF evil. Hitler was the worst at the time, but Stalin and Mao 1uped him pretty damn good later. And the fire bombings....


Yeah, let's not forget the RAF and its campaign of terror. Of course, when you declare victory, you also get to write the history. ...but anyway, back to this whole "hero" thing from some grunt scooping up a skeletal sex slave at some random shiathole during the big war and all... carry on.

Well, maybe if all of those things happened at the same time.

Very few wars the United States has ever been involved in can be justified. In fact, the only ones I can think of are the Revolutionary War, and the Civil War.

World War II could be, aptly, described as a war against evil knowing what we know now.

Sadly, and most terrifying of all, is now we know how close the United States came to being like Hitler's Germany in the years before Pearl Harbor. We ate up his promotion of the theories of racial eugenics, the sterilization and sequestration of the mentally ill*, and even came close to implementing Germany's policies on euthanasia.
