Obama’s visit to
is raising expectations in Hiroshima that the American
President should offer an apology to the victims of the atomic bombs. More 140,000 were killed in Japan and 70,000 in Hiroshima . No American President
has apologized. What for? Nagasaki
‘We would definitely like an apology to people who lost their lives, those who lost loved ones, parents who lost their children.’ Terumi Tanaka was only 13 and survived the bomb.
Compare what happened to
and Hiroshima and the Rape of Nankin,
just this incident alone caused more than 300,000 deaths, more than the
combined death in Nagasaki and Hiroshima . So what is so big deal
about Hiroshima and Nagasaki? The total death as a result of the Japanese
Invasion of China and South East Asia came to many millions. There was no
provocation but simply an act of aggression to conquer and control people and
countries by the Japanese. Nagasaki
In the case of
and Hiroshima , the atomic bombs were
brought down on the Japanese as a response to their invasion and killings of
millions of innocent Asians and South East Asians, including Americans sleeping
in Nagasaki , the Australians, New Zealanders and
British prisoners of wars. And the
massacres of Chinese, Koreans, Vietnamese, Indians, Singaporeans, Filipinos,
Indonesians etc etc. Hawaii
Why should the American President have to apologise for a miniscule act that the Japanese brought it upon themselves by slaughtering millions of Asians and Southeast Asians, Europeans, Australians, and of course the innocent Americans, thousands of them and the sneak attack in Pearl Harbour?
There is absolutely no reason for the Americans to apologise to the Japanese. It is the Japanese that should be apologizing to the Americans for the sneaky attacks at Pearl Harbour and the invasion of China, Korea and Southeast Asian countries. Did the Japanese sincerely apologise to the victims of their invasions, the tens of millions of innocent people that died in their hands, that were brutalized by them, the comfort women forced to be sex slaves?
