hardinparamedic: xanadian: So, this is how the surrender-ability scale must go, then:French |===============| JapaneseStudy a little about the Japanese mentality towards their emperor and their psyche during World War II, and it's pretty terrifying to see how they were. They viewed the Emperor as a literal living God, and were willing to blow themselves up at his behest rather than be captured and bring dishonor to their family.That this guy, cut off from all radio communications, for decades continued to fight is not surprising.
Peter von Nostrand: Part of me always wants to say how impressive this story is... But it really isn't. It's just sad. A lifetime wasted for nothing
Watubi: Killing people and/or dying for a living god is terrifying. Killing people and/or dying for an invisible god is normal. Got it
Sybarite: In 1984, still very much a celebrity, he established a youth camp, where he taught young Japanese some of the survival techniques he had used during his 30 years in hiding, when he lived on wild cows and bananas.Must have been a hell of a summer camp.
DarnoKonrad: What's it like to fight for the power and glory of your Emperor god king for 20 years just to come home to tentacle porn?
KidneyStone: You lost, get over it. Don't make me send LeMay back over there./Am I doing that right, anti-Southern folks?
Rev. Skarekroe: I don't have much sympathy for him. He didn't even try to help Gilligan and the gang get off the island.
abhorrent1: The others continued to survey military facilities in the area, attacking local residents and occasionally fighting with Philippine forcesHow much ammo did these guys have?
dittybopper: Whenever I have to describe a really tangled mess of brush or exceptionally bad thicket in the woods, I say "There's Japanese in there that don't know the war's over"./Stole it from a Three's Company episode.//Thought it was hilarious.
